People love the spaciousness of a single-family home, but it can be a drudgery to maintain it. This listing at Windward Cove has the best of both worlds, and it’s tucked away in a quiet part of Kailua.


“At our broker’s open this week, someone told me, ‘I’m not a condo person, but this is something I would consider,’” says realtor Vicki Yu.



Windward Cove is located at the back of Aoloa Place, so it’s quiet and private, but near all the action of Kailua town: Target, Safeway, Down to Earth, Whole Foods, Foodland, Times, Morning Brew, Starbucks, several eateries and a new Core Power Yoga studio are all within a 10-minute walk. Kailua Beach is a quick bike ride (under a mile) or 15- to 20-minute walk.



Inside the 1,320-square-foot unit, it’s so quiet you would never know there are so many nearby conveniences. The living room and master bedroom overlook tropical foliage and a pond with a waterfall so you get the trickling sounds of the flowing water throughout the home. (Good feng shui, I’m sure.)


The three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit was remodeled in 2011 with upgrades including tile flooring, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, contemporary cabinetry and new plumbing fixtures. It comes with two assigned parking stalls, and there is guest parking on the property.



Building amenities include a pool, hot tub, two tennis courts, sauna and barbecue area. There is extra storage including space for surfboards and bikes. There is a spacious 395-square-foot rooftop lānai as well, for stargazing or sunbathing.


This condo unit will be open on Sunday, Oct. 4, from 2 to 5 p.m. Click here for details.


Happy house hunting!
