Want to Live Like the President? Barack Obama’s Winter White House is Up for Rent

Take a look inside the Kailua Beach rental where President Obama stayed with the first family.

It’s an annual tradition—we wave to the motorcade of dark cars, loiter at Island Snow and Mid-Pacific Country Club, and sometimes grumble about the traffic. If the first family hasn’t invited you over before, now we can give you a glimpse inside their Kailua home away from home.

 

Just as it’s time to say aloha to the White House for the first president from Hawai‘i, watch the video above for a tour through the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home, formerly part of the Castle Estate.

The property, located at the Kāne‘ohe-end of Kailua Bay, is dubbed Paradise Point by the current owners and offers more than 6,800 square feet of indoor-outdoor island-style luxury living, with mahogany accents throughout and a sprawling lawn overlooking Kailua Beach, right out to the Mokulua islands. In addition to the lagoon-style pool, there’s a fitness center, gourmet kitchen, and hot tub. And it’s within a gated community and behind an additional wall and gate—perfect for the family with high security needs.

As you watch the video, you can almost picture Sasha and Malia sprawled like the teens they are across the couches, glued to their iPhones, and pretending to listen to a play-by-play of dad’s latest round of golf.
