Open house pick of the week: Hokulani in Kailua

Quite a few people tell me that they are intimidated to look for places in Kailua because there’s a perception that there are mostly expensive homes available. That thought couldn’t be farther from the truth, and this week’s open house pick is a good example. (Click here for details.)

Hokulani, an 11-year-old complex in Kailua town, is perfect for first-time buyers who want the laid-back Kailua lifestyle. This listing is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit on the ground floor in the desirable “N” building, which isn’t blocked from the tradewinds by other structures, and has privacy due to its location on the property. It’s a fairly rare opportunity, since the only other unit available in “N” is already in escrow.

The space isn’t bad—it’s 814 square feet—and features new appliances and cabinets in the kitchen, new paint, and laminate wood floors throughout the home. The bedrooms are large with big closets, which is a plus.

“Hokulani is walking and biking distance to anywhere in Kailua,” says realtor Tanya Hawkins. “It’s an ideal spot to live, with Whole Foods coming to the area next year.”

Happy house hunting!
