On the marina

We're lucky to be surrounded by water, for the relaxing views that remind us how good it is to be living on a tropical island. But even in Hawaii, getting a spot on the water is not easy to come by.

This listing at 7042 Kalanianaole Hwy. is one of those homes: it's right on the Hawaii Kai Marina, privately situated away from the main road. Despite its secluded location, it's still convenient to shopping and dining - possibly even using a boat.

"Some marina front owners can just jump in their boat or kayak and sail over to Costco to get prime 'boat parking' rather than fighting the traffic to find the perfect car parking space," says realtor Iku Honda. The home's current owners are looking into how much it would cost to install a boat dock.

The home itself is comfortable, open and breezy, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms within the 1,666 square feet of living area. There's also a pool area with a small courtyard for entertaining, as well as a large backyard.

"It's a good opportunity for a waterfront home, so conveniently located to everything," Honda says.

Money talk: $1,085,000 fee simple
