If you’re not familiar with East Honolulu, you’ve probably driven past Napua Point (before Maunalua Bay Beach Park, across Duck Island) and not known it was there. It’s kind of tucked away behind its landscaping, but is convenient to Roy’s Restaurant, Costco, City Mill, Safeway and Longs.
Realtor Fannie Cline with Hawai‘i Life Real Estate Brokers says that the most common remark heard from the beachfront lawn near the pool is, “Wow, I didn't even know this was here.”
Originally designed by architect David Stringer, this remodeled three-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom town home has 1,628 square feet of interior living area with a 47-square-foot lānai. The master suite is very spacious, with a peek-a-boo ocean view from the spa tub.
The spacious floor plan has a bedroom, living room, kitchen and dining room on the main floor with two additional bedrooms and baths on the second level. (This is well thought out, which offers great opportunities for aging gracefully with the home.)
Its proximity to Maunalua Bay makes it easy for active residents to surf and paddle; the complex includes a slip for your canoe or stand-up paddleboard, as well. Other amenities include an oceanside pool and spa and a tennis court.
The unit also includes a 369-square-foot garage, plus an additional assigned parking stall.
Maintenance fee is $928 per month and includes water, sewer, parking and other common expenses. Homeowner association fee includes insurance for the building as originally built, inside and out and flood insurance. According to Cline, this is priced below the last two sales, including a private sale.
This home will be open on Sunday, July 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. Click here for details. Happy house hunting!
