A Rare Gem Now for Sale at Kawela Bay, on O‘ahu’s North Shore. Open House July 29, 2018.

Kawela Kai and Kawela Bay make up one of the most unique and special areas on O‘ahu’s North Shore. There are only 16 oceanfront homes in the area know as Kawela Kai. A rare listing, one of the sixteen properties is now for sale. This particular home, located at 57-513 Kamehameha Highway, is just 2.5 miles from Sunset Beach and 1.5 Miles from Turtle Bay Resort.

This charming gem sits on the beautiful Kawela Bay, with ocean views. The Kawela Kai area was formerly Campbell Estate land before it was sold to homeowners back in the 1980’s. Early occupants were mostly kama‘aina (longtime residents) who used their oceanfront homes as vacation and summer getaways.  It was one of 11 oceanfront parcels that were granted special permission in 1987 to build a protective seawall. So while this home enjoys all the beauty of the water’s edge, it is safe from big surf and erosion.

This 3-bedroom, 2 bath home was remodeled in 2016, making it like new. Enjoy North Shore outdoor living at its finest on the home’s large covered lanai that overlooks 84 feet of beach frontage and a fenced-in yard with mature landscaping. The home also has a two-car garage and home office.

The property is special because of its proximity to world-famous surf breaks like Sunset Beach and Pipeline, but also removed from the hustle and bustle for which the area is known. Kawela Bay, one of the most beautiful spots on O‘ahu, is protected by a conservation easement. The gated community of Kawela Bay has only 30 homes.

Homeowners can play at the nearby Turtle Bay Resort’s two golf courses, including their Arnold Palmer-designed course that is ranked one of the best on O‘ahu. The resort also boasts great restaurants, a beautiful spa, and plenty of events, nightlife and activities. Boutique shopping, great dining and local farmers’ markets are all just minutes away in nearby Haleiwa.

This little peninsula is bordered by a park, with 130 acres of state-owned agricultural land to the west, and Kawela Bay and Turtle Bay Resort to the northeast. Since the mountain or mauka side of the property is protected by agricultural land, this little piece of paradise is likely to stay the same for generations to come.
