A sweet updated Kaimuki Cottage on 11th Avenue in Honolulu

OK, so you don’t want a condo. You want character. You want charm. You want a yard to potter around in, a front door to paint any color you want. You don’t want any shared walls, or footsteps above your head. You want a HOUSE. And not just a house, but a cozy bungalow. Here then is a wonderful example – 638 B 11th Ave (mls 201714653).

Refreshing, cool colors are light and bright, and an abundance of louvered windows keeps the air flowing throughout the home.

A bright, light Kitchen that is well appointed. Good for entertaining, the sand-hued granite counters and blue glass tiled backsplash evokes that Hawaiian beach feel. Blown glass pendant lights above the counter resemble hanging flowers – Heliconia? Datura? Whatever your favorite flowers are, these shades help bring the outside in.


Smaller homes need thoughtful approaches to storage. This built-in wall unit does just that with room for books and files and photos and mementos. The nifty pull out desk feature helps with tasks when needed, then disappears when not. Clean, Modern, Efficient.

Peaceful, calming bedroom. Modern in feel, yet the tongue and groove walls and ceiling are pure cozy classic. Ceiling fans throughout the house help recreate those gentle trade wind breezes, keeping you refreshed.

Let the pottering begin. That yard you need, complete with new decking and a BBQ, too. This is most likely not something you’ll find in your average condo.

Charming from the red (or any color you want!) front door and beyond, this home has been lovingly cared for and is move-in ready.

Front of Home

If you have been searching for a cottage that has charm, is central to the University of Hawaii, the shops and restaurants of Kaimuki, Waikiki, and the H1 freeway, with updated, modern interior, then this is the home for you.
