Lots of Amenities…

Both the upper and lower levels of this Lanikai beach house look out to lovely green spaces. In addition, they each have their own lanais and laundry.

And There’s a Bonus…

In front of the house and across the yard is a newer, detached garage building, with a 2 car garage, a large storage room, and a permitted workshop with full bath and wet bar. This workshop room can be used as a studio, office, or guest suite. It also has its own laundry. This fantastic Lanikai beach house even has an outdoor shower!

While this home has been used as three separate living spaces, it could also be suitable as a single residence. The lot is approximately 9,662 square feet. As a result, there is also plenty of room for expansion. It is a lovely area and a very nice lot, with a grassy backyard, and plumeria and mango trees.

Location is Great…

This home is ideally located just a few houses down from the Mid-Pacific Country Club, with its spectacular golf course and fantastic clubhouse, with restaurant, gym, and swimming pool. The ocean and Lanikai Beach are also nearby, along with the Pillbox hiking trail. In addition, the center of Kailua Town with shopping, restaurants, and other businesses is less than 2 miles away.
