Hilton, Back in the Day

As I mentioned in a recent post, I’ll be sharing some vintage HONOLULU Magazine real estate ads from time to time. This Hilton Lagoon Apartments ad, from the August 1966 issue, caught my eye thanks to its highlighter-yellow backdrop and eye-catching black-and-white illustrations, drawings meant to convey the good life in Honolulu.

Crouching Lion Inn & Restaurant for Sale

The Crouching Lion has long been a welcome respite for weary Oahu residents tasked with chauffeuring their in-laws around the island on whirlwind tours of the east side and North Shore. (Sea turtles! Shave ice! The mac nut farm! Oh, my). Having done this jaunt several times, I can honestly say that around Kaaawa, my patience begins to wear a little thin, which is why the Crouching Lion is so fantastic. Perched on a hillside, with abundant outdoor eating areas, ocean views and a gift shop, it’s every tourist’s happy spot and an excellent excuse for the tour guides to relax with mai tais. In fact, I’d become so enamored with the place that I wrote about it in last year’s Best Bars feature.

Ossipoff-Designed House on Market for $3.5 Million

A fan of the work of architect Vladimir Ossipoff (yes, even the hotly debated IBM Building), I’m experiencing a bit of real estate envy with this house, a Diamond Head stunner that displays many of the details for which Ossipoff has come to be known: whitewashed masonry, exposed concrete, natural finish woods, picture-window walls, large overhanging eaves and lanai that act as extensions of the interior spaces.

Spook-tacular Real Estate

I love a good ghost story, and, here on Oahu, there are plenty of tales of spooks and ghosts and things that go bump in the night. And there are definitely haunted-house (and haunted-building) stories galore.
