Years before President Obama was in the political spotlight, he was ritually coming to visit his sister that lived in Kailua here on Oahu. Last year when he was voted as our next President of the United States, he took “one last trip to Hawaii” prior to taking office. He stayed at a $9 million beachfront home then. Well, history has repeated itself as he’ll be coming back again this year to enjoy Kailua.
You might ask yourself “what does the President of the United States see in Kailua?” First off, Kailua has one of the most gorgeous white sandy beaches that stretches for miles. It’s also on the windward side of Oahu, which typically gets more rain and everything is lust and green. Kailua is also a little more “laid back” than the city life in Honolulu. Kaneohe Ranch, who owns most of the commercial real estate in the area has also done a fabulous job of renovating the “town” and a new Whole Foods supermarket is in the works.
There’s something for everyone when it comes to Kailua real estate. Prices start at $199,888 for a 2 bed, 1 bath condo and go as high as $36 Million for a brand new oceanfront estate on 1.5 acres. Feel free to give me a call if you’re ready to live your Hawaii Life in Kailua, Oahu.
