Oceanfront Options – The Windward Coast – Kaneohe

Oahu’s Windward Coast is 34 scenic miles extending from Kahuku Point in the north to Makapuu Point in the south.

The Windward Oahu region itself is unrivaled in its natural beauty and dramatic contrasts – from its pristine white-sand beaches washed by turquoise waters to the verdant vertical cliffs of the Koolau Mountain Range.

In 1972, Kuilima, now Turtle Bay, opened on coastal lands where the North Shore morphs into the Windward Coast. Mauka lands in the area have generally remained undeveloped, with the exception of ongoing projects of the Mormon Church.

The coast’s most prominent geographic feature, Mokapu Peninsula, site of one of Hawaii’s largest military installations, forms the southern boundary of Kaneohe Bay. Marine and oceanographic research facilities are located here, as well as at Makapuu to the south.

Residential properties along this coast range from country cottages to large estates, apartment buildings, townhomes, and condominiums. The area’s two largest communities, Kaneohe and Kailua, continue to grow, with real estate values surpassing price points for properties in some of southeast Oahu’s most upscale neighborhoods.

Just ashore from the Waikalua-Loko Fish Pond area on Kaneohe Bay is a newly completed three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, two-story residence in the Waikalua Bayside subdivision.

Offered by Keller Williams Honolulu for $1,825,0000 this brand new 2,304-square-foot home features views of both the mountains and ocean.

The bedrooms include a large master suite with a walk-in closet and a master bathroom with separate tub and shower.

Other amenities include split-level air conditioning, porcelain flooring throughout the main floor, granite counter tops in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room, ceiling fans, decorative kitchen backsplash, refrigerator, range and oven, washer and dryer, and dishwasher, and a 511-square-foot carport.

Accessed from Waikalua Road, the 3,671 square-foot, gently sloping lot is fully landscaped and surrounded by 19 other paired and homes.

Keller Williams Honolulu agent Michael Garcia, who has listed the home, said the Bay-side project complements the Kaneohe Bay waterline due to its “beautiful island-style design.”

Co-listing agent Deborah Oakley-Melvin said she grew up across the Bay from the development and now is “delighted to see these new homes enhance the area, right by the centuriesold fishponds of Koolaupoko, brought back to life by the community.”

Nearby community assets include a golf driving range, Kaneohe Bay Beach Park and other public parks, the Windward City Shopping Center, and numerous schools and churches.

Keller Williams Honolulu will host an open house at the property today, Sept. 17, from 2 to 5 p.m., or it can be seen by appointment by contacting Michael Garcia at (808) 221-4661 or
