Haseko Development announces grand opening of two new home series in Hoakalei

There’s a new opportunity for homeownership in the family-friendly resort community of Hoakalei. Actually, there are two. Designed by Oahu developer Haseko, two new home collections are coming to Hoakalei’s newest neighborhood, Kua-papa, meaning “at peace” and “at ease.”

The Kuapapa neighborhood takes its name from the adjacent Kuapapa Preserve. This is the first neighborhood in Hoakalei located next to a historic preservation site. Nestled in the natural landscape and accessible by a walking path, the Kuapapa Preserve offers a glimpse into the lives of some of the island’s earliest inhabitants. Remnants of structures made from coral cobbles have attracted the attention of archaeologists and cultural historians, and continue to enrich the living heritage of the land and the Hawaiian people.

Next to the preserve, in the interior of Kuapapa, the two new collections of two-story homes feature Haseko’s trademark design and locally sourced craftsmanship. Both the Loulu and Naio Series are unique seaside-style cottages that bring the street to life in a refreshing palette of colors. Ornamental details and custom millwork, such as graceful porch columns and window boxes, distinguish these homes. And thoughtful landscaping enhances the neighborhood.

The Loulu Series features four casually elegant three- to four-bedroom plans. The Naio Series is larger, with four more spacious four-to five-bedroom models. Both collections feature open floor plans designed for relaxed, indoor/outdoor living. Flowing from inviting front porches to covered lanai, they make optimum use of living space and sunlight. Both collections offer a model with a main-floor master bedroom.

As Hoakalei’s resort amenities begin to emerge, Kuapapa is situated to take advantage of them. Residents will have privileged access to the newly opened Wai Kai Hale Club — a secluded area where they can launch a kayak, canoe and paddleboard into the sheltered waters of the spectacular Wai Kai Lagoon. They will enjoy views of the fairways and waterways that border the neighborhood — courtesy of Ernie Els and his signature Hoakalei Country Club Golf Course. And there’s more: a neighborhood pool and spa are planned to follow, along with a network of trails and a shoreline wilderness park.

With prices ranging from the mid $600,000s (FS) for the Loulu Series, and from the mid $700,000s (FS) for the Naio Series, the homes of Kuapapa offer a delightful way to enjoy the year-round, family-friendly resort lifestyle of Hoakalei. Eight model homes (four in each series) will be open for touring Saturday, Sept. 27, and daily thereafter.
