Grand Portlock Luxury Home Offers Privacy in Paradise

There is a reason why Henry J. Kaiser chose Portlock to build his own personal home. Located on Oahu’s south shore, he chose this strip along the ocean, as it was the prime location. Starting with Portlock, his vision gave birth to what later he developed as Hawaii Kai.

A newer home on a portion of the old Kaiser Estate sold for $19,650,000 last month. It goes without saying that you can’t have a conversation about luxury real estate on Oahu without including Portlock in the equation. We’ve listed a home in Portlock just prior to the holidays that offers great value for those looking for a luxury home in a great neighborhood.

One house back from the ocean, you have the luxury of not having to cross the street to go for a swim, surf, or SUP. Yet, you don’t have all upkeep of a home living directly on the water. Considering what the last few oceanfront homes sold for, you’re saving millions right off the bat.

Are You Ready to Make Your Move?

One of the best things about living in Hawaii and Portlock in general is the ideal climate for the indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The south shore of Oahu doesn’t get the rain that the windward (East) side does, nor does it have the arid humidity of the leeward (West) side. The cool trade winds and dry climate truly make this location paradise…Are you ready to make your move?
