Kapiwai owner-occupant sales begin July 11 on new homes close to downtown Honolulu.


Pauoa Valley is a nice area, close to downtown, but also known as an older neighborhood. Starting today, however, prospective owners can buy into a new, private, eco-luxury stream-side development behind Booth Road.

Pauoa Valley Preserve, LLC began owner-occupant sales for the much-anticipated development of Kapiwai today—July 11, and will have its models open this weekend. Kapiwai consists of 24 fee-simple condominium homesites spread out over 8 acres along a new private road. Each homesite has been matched with a three or four-bedroom modern, eco-luxury residence plan designed by renowned residential architects Mark DeReus of Waimea and Joel Turkel of Cambridge, Mass.

Prices will range from $1.275 to $1.95 million, depending on the package purchased. Buyers can select a construction package—which includes the homesite plus the construction — or a turnkey package. Either package is for the same master-planned home style; the difference is the financing options, which they can explain to prospective buyers at the sales site.

The homesites will be 5,000 to 18,000 square feet and the homes will be 1,600 to 2,400 square feet. Some will be single level, and others built on two levels with an option to add another bedroom and bath. The development is carefully planned so each home is at least 14 to 24 feet apart, with the “loud” areas of the homes facing away from each other to maximize privacy and minimize impact, according to Sisi Takaki of Prudential Advantage, the exclusive broker for the project.

The development runs vertically along the new road and overlooks The Gardens, a 7-acre sanctuary composed of a natural stream, 25-foot waterfall and grotto, hiking paths, and the stonework and waterways of ancient lo‘I. The Gardens operates as a nonprofit entity, to protect the  views and experience of  the sanctuary from new development.

The first residents can expect to move in during the summer of 2015. Click here for more details.

Happy house hunting!
