Hawaii Kai Waterfront Homes For Sale | Views and Private Boat Docks in Honolulu

If your dream is to own a boat and to have a waterfront home with your own private dock, then look no further than Hawaii Kai. Hawaii Kai is a very popular residential area on the east side of Honolulu on Oahu. The area is about 20 minutes from Downtown Honolulu and is a water lovers paradise. Hawaii Kai is a region of Honolulu that includes several neighborhoods, including West Marina, Anchorage, Mariners Cove, Kealaula Kai, and Luna Kai, to name a few. All of these neighborhoods have waterfront homes along canals that include private boat docks and stunning water views.

Hawaii Kai Waterfront Homes and Condos for Sale

Hawaii Kai waterfront homes for sale include a mix of single family homes, condos, and townhomes. Many of these properties have boat docks with boats moored right at the property.

People love Hawaii Kai for its views, its calm waterfront living, and for its laid-back atmosphere. The area has grocery stores, a Costco, restaurants, and small businesses that serve residents who live nearby.

Buyers considering any of the Hawaii Kai waterfront homes for sale, have to pay attention to boat size restrictions. Not all boats will fit in front of the property. Also, not all will fit under the bridge that links the area with the open ocean.

Owners who wish to own larger boats can still enjoy all the benefits of waterfront living but will need to look for alternative mooring options, which could include Ala Wai Harbor, Kewalo Harbor, or Ko Olina Marina. Boat slips can also be leased from Koko Marina Center, for owners of Hawaii Kai homes that don’t have waterfront access.

Many residents own kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and small sailboats that they easily launch off of their properties. Waterfront living definitely has its privileges. This type of lifestyle is not only beautiful, but for people who enjoy water sports, it is also very convenient. Hawaii Kai neighborhoods are so unique in this respect. They offer waterfront living unlike any other in Honolulu. True paradise!
