Affordable Rentals on the Beach in Oahu? It’s Possible.

Vibe: The Waterfront at Puuloa offers beachfront living in former military housing. Formerly known as the Iroquois Point Island Club, the community’s military roots are still evident: There’s a Navy Exchange gas station and mini mart, and a somewhat-reliable ferry that shuttles military residents (about 60 percent of the community’s population is military) to and from Ford Island and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The community, with 1,450 homes and approximately 5,000 residents, comes off as a small, Sims-like town.

Kailua Beachfront Estate Reduced by $1.8 Million

Perhaps the third time is the charm for this Kailua beachfront estate, which recently had its third price drop. The nearly 8,000-plus-sq.-ft., Kailua residence designed by architect Peter Vincent was originally listed at $21 million, reduced to $14.8 million and has now settled in at a little less than $13 million.

Waikiki Open House

I’m all about ways to cut back on the stresses of shopping for a new home because, if we’re being honest here, house hunting can be a patience-testing, marriage-wrecking, blood-pressure-raising affair. So I was pretty jazzed to hear about Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties’ Waikiki is Open event on Sunday, Sept. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Liliha Street’s Million-Dollar Baby

I adore the character, charm and history of old homes, particularly those done in the Craftsman style, and this well-maintained Liliha St. residence, which was built in 1914, is one of the best examples of that classic style that I’ve seen on the island. The five-bedroom, three-bath home in the Puunui neighborhood was purportedly built for a physician of the royal family, and later owned by an Admiral.

What $250K Buys You in Waikiki

You know when someone tells you, usually in a hushed, conspiratorial whisper, about some too-good-to-be-true deal and you think, ‘Yeah, sure, right. As if?’ That’s pretty much how it went when a friend recently tipped me off that the Niihau Apts. building on Beach Walk Ave. in Waikiki has fee simple condos listed for sale for less than $300,000. And pigs can fly and I own a unicorn, or at least that’s what was running through my mind as she told me. But, lo and behold, the Niihau does exist, and there are currently a couple active listings for units in the building, all for less than $300,000.
