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.

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.
The outdoor cabana is one of several spots for outdoor entertaining
Exotic Architectural Features
Once inside the home, you’ll notice no expense was spared as all types of exotic hardwoods were used throughout. From the main living area to formal dining and entertainment room, it feels as if you’re in the privacy of your own resort.

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?
