Island luxury in Kakaako

The rich hues and swirls of koa wood in the kitchen and living room of this just listed two-bedroom, two-bath condo in Kakaako may be what initially catch your eye, but they are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the upgrades that were installed since 2011. Click here for details.

Located in the mauka tower of One Waterfront Towers, the 1,470-square-foot unit has a seemingly endless list of extras. The owners, who are selling to move into a larger place, enjoy renovating their living spaces and pay extra attention to the details.

Aside from the koa wood kitchen cabinets and living room entertainment center, some of the upgrades include travertine flooring, stainless steel appliances, custom lighting, solar window tinting and blinds, and my favorite – black-out shades in both bedrooms.

The master bath boasts elegant touches such as mother-of-pearl tile on the back wall and a deep soaking tub with a waterfall faucet. In the guest bathroom, there's a striking turquoise-and-gold hand-blown glass vessel sink signed by the artist.

Plus it's perched on the 36th floor, where you can take in the ocean views on the 155-square-foot lanai.

Also during the renovations, two new central A/C units and vents were installed, so you won't have to worry about any upcoming mechanical repairs.

Fuzz factor: Happy tails! Pets are allowed, you'll need to check on specifics.

Amenities are ones you'd expect from a luxury condo — a recreation deck, an exercise room, a pool and a tennis court to name a few.

The price includes two covered parking stalls in a secure garage; there's ample parking for guests.

If you'd like to see it for yourself, there will be a broker’s open house (it will be open to the public) tomorrow from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. It will not be open on Sunday.
