Oahu's most expensive homes

It’s no secret that Honolulu is one of the most expensive cities in which to live, but what kind of home could you swing if money was no object, or even if you could just afford a $65,000- or even $100,000-a-month mortgage payment?

Here are the five priciest listings on Oahu*:

1. 210 N. Kalaheo, Kailua. Listed at just under $25 million, this property is actually two homes—a five-bedroom main residence and a three-bedroom guest house. It’s on the beach, of course.

Money talk: $24.95 million.

2. 503 Portlock Road, Hawaii Kai. This seven-bedroom, six-bath home is so exclusive, its address is withheld on websites such as Zillow. It sits on almost two oceanfront acres in Portlock and has a separate one-bedroom nanny apartment. Lucky nanny!
