Mid Century Flair Found in Portlock, a Suburb of Honolulu

 Mid Century Flair in Portlock

There are many suburbs on Oahu, but only a few stand out as the creme de la creme of world-famous Honolulu; Diamond Head, Kahala, Hawaii Loa Ridge, and Portlock.

Portlock, named after Captain Nathaniel Portlock who sailed here in 1786 is most known today for its access to Maunalua Bay, a haven for water sports enthusiasts where you can kayak, swim, surf, boat, stand-up paddleboard or take in sunsets as they drop behind Diamond Head!

This small enclave of homes is conveniently located within the community of Hawaii Kai, another suburb of Honolulu where you will find all the necessities such as shopping, restaurants, schools, and a beautiful private marina. The neighborhood of Portlock is a hidden gem, ideally tucked behind the highway away from the hustle and bustle. Many homes were built right after World War II when Hawaii experienced a growth spurt, and Henry Kaiser built his oceanfront residence here in 1959. Today many of the homes have been remodeled making this neighborhood extremely desirable.

Indoor-Outdoor Living

Indoor-outdoor entertaining is easy with sliding doors from several rooms leading to a spacious covered lanai overlooking a lush, tropical garden with tiki torches and water feature — a perfect respite from the elements. Or if you prefer more sun, you can swim, play and sunbathe in your large saltwater pool surrounded by privacy landscaping and a manicured lawn. This is the quintessential setting for island-style living and entertaining.

Ohana with Private Entrance

But that’s not all! An additional bonus of this property is the second story 2 bedroom, 1 bath Ohana style dwelling with a separate carport and private entrance. This spacious addition of 1280 square feet with living room, dining area, and kitchenette even has a peek-a-boo ocean view. Imagine the possibilities.
