Resort living in Kailua

There are probably a ton of reasons the First Family likes to vacation on the Kailua side every year: The quiet neighborhoods, the laid-back lifestyle, the famous beaches and more privacy than you can get in town. If they ever decide to buy a place, I'd imagine this home in Beachside might be one of their choices.

Built in 2008, this 4,230-square-foot, two-story home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, about 950 square feet of lanai area, and two garages on a 10,001-square-foot lot. (Click here for details.)

It's got the laid-back, casual ambience of an Island home, and the flow from indoor to outdoor living is a nice touch. But make no mistake, only the best materials are found in this home, making it luxurious to the various senses.

Outside, the lava rock salt water pool has a trickling waterfall and features a deep blue water-tiled Jacuzzi. The lanai has a grilling area and surrounds the pool so you can have a civilized barbecue with the neighbors.

Inside, there's a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry by Zelko Woodworks (complete with under-cabinet lighting), hand-picked granite for the counters and top-of-the-line Kohler stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom features African mahogany pocket doors overlooking the pool and garden, while the luxurious master bathroom has marble counters, koa-framed mirror, travertine floors, and separate shower and tub.

Downstairs, the TV/media room includes custom designed cabinetry, thoughtfully created to store tech toys and accessories.

This property is so huge, you will wonder if you're in a resort or in a home. It's a long way from the White House, but it's definitely fit for a Presidential ohana.

Money talk: $3 million fee simple
