Hawaii Kai Peninsula is a gated community with a combination of 630 single and family homes, townhouses, and condominiums.  This community is located on the eastern side of Hawaii Kai near Koko Crater.  It was the last waterfront community to be built (built in 2006 by Stanford Carr Development, Inc) in the area. There is nearly one mile of homes that have views of the water and the marina is at every turn. 

The Peninsula is divided into two sections.  The first section is located at 520 Lunalilo Home Road and is located within the marina.  The other section is 580 Lunalilo Home Road and most homes here sit on a broad expanse of the waterfront. 

Like any other gated community in Oahu, residents have the opportunity to use several amenities.  There are several things residents are able to put to good use in this community.  For instance, a meeting or party room is available, BBQ areas with picnic tables, park space, exercise room, two pools that also have spas, a wading pool, and boat docks located in the marina.  There are also pavilions, gazebos, a tot park, and a marina promenade that residents can use at any time.  The area is also very pet friendly.  Many of the owners who walk their dogs everyday know everyone else’s dogs.

There are multiple types of homes available so buyers can feel free to be choosy. Condominiums come as detached and attached.  Many of the homes in the area are small cottages.  There are plenty of walkways between homes, which are great for those who do not own a vehicle.  The area is really friendly so residents should feel free to stroll in safety. Many homes in this community will also provide a great view of the ocean or the mountains or both. 

The homes in this area sell between $500,000 and $900,000. The most expensive homes tend to be the villas and condominiums, while the cheapest homes are usually the cottages and townhomes.  There are also a few apartment complexes for those would prefer to rent a place for a while.

There are several choices to choose from in the Peninsula. Anyone looking for a friendly community by the water would not go wrong choosing from a home here. There are a number of different styles and sizes.  Most of the community stays sold so if someone was thinking about calling this area home, they should start keeping an eye on the Hawaii Kai real estate market.
