Marina Front Living

Imagine having friends over for a couple glasses of wine and then you all hop on your boat conveniently docked in your backyard for a short ride to Assagios for Italian, Maile’s for Thai, The Kona Brew Pub for locally brewed beer, and pizza (yes, they allow patrons to dock at most restaraunts in Hawaii Kai – first come, first serve), or perhaps you decide to head out to Maunalua Bay to watch the sunset with the rest of your bottle of wine and your favorite people. This scenario is highly likely if you live on the Marina.

Love to surf? Forget paddling out. The luxury of taking your boat to the local surf break “Turtles” at Maunaluau Bay is convenient and quite common amongst homeowners in the Marina.

It is the promise of an “active lifestyle” built around the ocean that lures so many people from all over the world to this boating community on Oahu. Whether you like to fish, swim, boat, surf, or relax – living here is simply like being on vacation…all year round!

Marina Front Neighborhoods

The Hawaii Kai Marina is privately owned and is not open to the general public. In order to gain boat access to the marina, you have to be a homeowner or tenant. This maintains a level of security and exclusivity for the community as a whole.
