Open house pick of the week: The Colony in Hawaii Kai

Looking for a reasonably priced condo in a gated, waterfront community? This one-bedroom unit in The Colony at the Peninsula in West Marina, open for viewing this Sunday, fits the bill and boasts lots of amenities. (Click here for details.)

The 904-square-foot, spacious unit features 9-foot ceilings (a rarity among condos), central air, and a private lanai with access from the living room and bedroom.

The kitchen has sleek granite countertops and an open design with a breakfast bar – great for lingering over a cup of coffee and the Sunday paper.

The owners, who purchased the home new in 2004, installed wooden floors throughout the space for a cleaner look (and to make cleaning up pet hair a snap). Up to two pets are allowed, with no weight limit.

If you’re a clotheshorse, you’ll appreciate the walk-in closet just off the large, bright bedroom.

What caught my eye about this property at the Peninsula are all the amenities included in its low monthly fees. Of course, you get the basics (cable TV, water and sewer), but you also get a slew of others such as Internet service, a nicely appointed exercise room, a small playground just for tots, a pool and spa, and a meeting room complete with kitchen facilities to name a few.

Another feature at the 43-acre property is the Promenade, a path that winds along the water and ends at the tip of the peninsula, perfect for an evening stroll or morning run.

The community is located on the eastern side of Hawaii Kai near Koko Crater.

There also are 10 boat docks available to Peninsula residents. Slip rental is a bargain at $95 a month. (A slip at the Ala Wai Harbor could run you up to three times that amount.) But naturally – just like the Ala Wai – there’s a waitlist.

The unit comes with tandem, covered parking stalls.

The open house is Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Happy house hunting!

Money talk: $467,000 fee simple
