Oceanfront view from Hale Pohaku Lanai
This weeks’ WKRP is a 2 bed/2 bath oceanfront condo in Hale Pohaku (MLS# 241718) priced at $699,000. Hale Pohaku is a small 6 unit complex on Alii Drive. Being so few units and such a wonderful location for a second or vacation rental home, they don’t come on the market very often. These units are also so popular as vacation rentals, that they are rarely available to show around the guests, even when they do come on the market.
Consequently, this was my first opportunity to discover the wonders of this unique community. And as luck would have it, we were also invited in to see our Hawaii Life listing in the same building (MLS# 240736), so today was an extra special treat to get a two-for-one.
Oceanfront lanai into kitchen with custom koa cabinets
The custom koa cabinets and accessories in this unit are perfect for the oceanfront environment, which can be harsh on other less tolerant materials.
Uniquely designed community pool
Renowned architect Vladimir Ossipoff designed the pool to make efficient use of the available space by extending the unit’s lanai partially over the water. This feature creates an inviting sensation from the lanai—makes you want to just jump right in.
I was even more impressed by the louvered wall design in the bedroom areas presenting extraordinary air flow and cross ventilation. And my personal favorite—pocket doors—providing the open air atmosphere that brings the tropical breezes and oceanfront views right into the living space.
This condo comes fully furnished down to the sheets and spoons. Just bring your toothbrush. Come on down for your best Hawaii Life.
