Open House Picks of the Week: Ewa and Hawaii Kai

Interesting prices at opposite ends of Oahu.

I thought I’d show you two open house picks for this weekend because I thought the prices were really interesting for the areas represented. The first is in Hawaii Kai, which is known as a more expensive Oahu neighborhood, but this pick is priced at less than $500K. The other, in a complete switch, is in Ewa, with a price tag of $1.7 million.

Both properties will be open this Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Happy house hunting!

555 Hahaione St., Unit 14D

This spacious one-bedroom, two-bath unit in The Commodore is 1,019 sq. ft. of living area, which is bigger than some single-family homes in Metro Honolulu, but it’s a cool find for other reasons, too.

For one thing, it’s got some nice ocean and marina views, since it was the last high-rise that built in Hawaii Kai back in 1982. (The zoning for the other developments cannot exceed a certain height limit in most areas.) The Commodore is regarded as ahead of its time, even now, with its high-end finishes, waterfall entry, huge heated pools with more waterfalls and a koi pond. I only just found out that the condo features a collection of more than 60 original art pieces by renowned local artists displayed in the hallways, private library, and other common areas.

91-215 Ewa Beach Rd.

Okay, this listing is actually two homes, but it’s still interesting as a property for Ewa Beach.

This 18,752 sq.-ft. oceanfront lot is located at the far end of Ewa Beach. One of the homes is a three-bedroom, two-bath single-story home with a fireplace and a large lanai for entertaining.

The other home is a one-bedroom, 1.5-bath, two-story cottage. There are two private entry gates, which is nice, but the purchase is one package under one TMK listing.

Bonus, especially for summer, the property has fruit trees: mango, papaya, banana, fig, lemon and avocado.
