Open House Pick of the Week: Koko Isle Circle

Island living…on your own little island.

Everyone wants to live in East Honolulu. Well, many of you do, anyway. But, if you’re not familiar with this part of the island, let me give you a quick intro to this week’s open house.

Hawaii Kai spans several hundred acres on the East side of Oahu. There are mountains, flatlands, golf courses and, in this case, the marina, a popular draw for both living and playing. In the marina area, there are about 20 different neighborhoods, each with its own distinct characteristics.

Koko Isle is one of the few actual islands in the area; it’s not a piece of land jutting out from the main body. There’s just one little bridge that gets you on and off the island, so it’s private, and the management keeps an eye out for the residents’ safety.

On this island, you will find smallish, two-story town homes that look a little plain and dated from the outside … but get over it, as many are renovated beautifully, like this one.

The ground floor unit has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with 1,703 square feet of living area.

As you can see from the photos, the open floor plan is great for enhancing an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, and there are views across the wide marina to the bird sanctuary, green valleys and the Koolaus from most every area of the home.

Outside, you have more than 1,100 square feet of private outdoor space, including a large marina-front deck with direct access to the water.

This listing just went on the market two days ago and will be open this Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, click here.

Happy house hunting!
