A rare condo unit in Kailua

Poinciana Manor in Kailua is one of those condos that area locals are familiar with because of its age (37 years) and the many longtime residents that define its neighborhood character.

The pet-friendly building is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and features a large courtyard with a koi pond and gazebo,barbecue grills, a small clubhouse near the grills where many residents host gatherings, a playground for small children and a saltwater pool.

“I really love the neighborhood. It feels safe and all the neighbors are lovely, especially the ones walking their dogs around the street,” says Melissa Martinez Kim, who is selling her Poinciana unit with her husband so they can live on base. “It's really just a five-minute walk to Safeway, Down to Earth and the future Target one way, and down the other you have Starbucks, Teddy's Bigger Burgers, Maui Tacos, Macy's, CPK, Pier 1, Long's, the soon-to-be open Whole Foods and lots of other great shops. The beach is a mile away and is almost a straight shot from the neighborhood.”

The Kims’ unit is a spacious three-bedroom, two-bathroom corner unit on the second floor, which featuresanother courtyard so you don’t have to deal with walkways. It stays cool, thanks to the large jalousie windows throughout the unit and an air conditioning unit in the master bedroom.
They recently upgraded the kitchen with white cabinetry, a new counter top and wine refrigerator. Each bathroom also has a rainfall showerhead. Most of the flooring throughout the unit is ceramic tile, except for the carpeted bedrooms.

The best thing about the residence, however, is its oversized wraparound lanai, which can be accessed through the living room or the master bedroom. It’s large enough to host parties, create a personal sunning area, or make an outdoor playroom for children.

The unit comes with two covered side-by-side parking stalls, and guests can opt for the building’s visitor parking or ample street parking. (Click here for details.)
