Kailua Beachside Plantation Home with South Seas Touches and Oasis-Like Pool

In Kailua there are many lovely homes, no doubt about that, but there is a particular standout I’d like to share with you.

This is a 3 bed/3 bath home with 2,836 sq.ft. living area and listed at $1,695,000 (MLS# 1300347)

87 Kaiholu Place is a charming plantation-style cottage from the street, but inside it has been transformed, keeping the clean-lines of the plantation style and marrying it with the exotic flavor of the South Seas.

Plantation Style Home with South Seas Touches

This is first evidenced by the saturated blue color of the exterior, a tropical tone if there ever was one. Inside, yellow and greens are highlighted by crisp white touches which highlights the inherent plantation style.

These two styles work well together. For example, the kitchen utilizes Board and Batten cabinetry as you would expect from a plantation-style kitchen, but check out the granite choice – a swirl of beach colors: crushed seashells, lava black, and frothy white caught in a wave pattern. You might as well be on a South Seas beach while simply standing there in your kitchen.

The Master Bedroom is almost purely plantation with its Beadboard walls and ceiling fan, yet it opens onto a spa-like Master Bath complete with a flagstone floor and open air rainfall shower, leaving no doubt that these styles play well off one another.

Kailua Beachside Oasis

Enter the back through an imported, carved wooden gate, and you find yourself in a tropical oasis: lush tropical plants and a free formed pool with waterfall. There’s even a separate cottage for guests, or maybe you’ll want it as a studio for painting, pottery, writing – the inspiration of this home will have that effect on you. Having lived in a very similar home I can tell you this – you may never want to leave!
