So much of what we do in life has to do with being in the right place at the right time. And, as we all know, the most important factor in real estate is location. Put the two together, add a little magic from paradise and Ho`o Maika`i – (rough translation: beautiful blessing) could be yours. 

Ho`o Maika`i, better known today as 126 South Kalaheo Avenue, Kailua, on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii, is situated on one of the best stretches of world-famous Kailua Beach. All of Kailua Beach is eyes-wide-open beautiful, but some stretches of beach are wider and have a better view angle. This 36,000+ square foot street-to-beach lot may very well be the last piece of property on Kailua Beach, the place to build your tropical paradise or develop a three-home compound. Two nearby ‘compounds’ have recently sold for $15M and $18M. Ho`o Maika`i is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! At one time, around 1939, this site was developed and became the young  community’s meeting place for musicians and athletes. Over the years, infrastructure was added to this perfectly situated lot – electricity, sewer, cable, and water.   

There is only one way to feel the magic though. You just have to step onto the land at Ho`o Maika`i; and walk toward the ocean. Listen to the gentle waves lap the shores of the sandy beach. If you listen really closely, you just might hear kanikapila-style Hawaiian guitar and ukulele, the sweet music that was played by Hawaii’s famous musicians who often gathered to play at Ho`o Maika`i several generations ago. 

Feel the gentle trade winds caress you, drink in the view of Na Mokulua (The Mokes), the twin islets that are just three-quarters of a mile off shore. Imagine yourself swimming or kayaking to Flat Island, for a close encounter.  Remember, Ho`o Maika`i was once a community gathering place for sports as well as music. So, whatever your passion, from enjoying the warmth of the sun and the calming water to windsurfing, kiteboarding, SUP, diving or paddling, this is your paradise.  

For sports enthusiasts who prefer more than water sports, 126 South Kalaheo Avenue is very close to Lanikai where, if you are a hiking enthusiast, you can hike to the Lanikai pill boxes and clearly see what seems to be forever – all of Kailua Beach and Lanikai, the Mokulua Islands, and whales in winter. Across from the beginning of the hike is the entrance to the Mid-Pacific (Mid-Pac) Country Club’s golf course, a favorite of former US President Barack Obama. A sailor’s delight, the Kaneohe Yacht Club is just a short ten-minute drive along Kalaheo Avenue and then Kaneohe Bay Drive to the Yacht Club. In the opposite direction along the eastern coast of Oahu, at the base of the spectacular Ko`olau mountains in Waimanalo, is the Honolulu Polo Club and equestrian facility. 

Kailua may be a laid-back beach town, but the shopping and dining are world class, the perfect accent to the most beautiful beach in the world. Barely a mile or so from 126 S. Kalaheo Avenue is the bustling little Kailua Town featuring Whole Foods; Roy Yamaguchi’s newest concept, Goen; the award-winning Maui Brewing Co.; plus numerous boutique stores, and national chains like Target right next door to locally-owned quaint shops. The eclectic collection of eateries in Kailua include Buzz’s, where sizzling steaks, fresh fish and an outstanding salad bar are the stars, as is their famous Mai Tai, arguably the best in Hawaii. Kailua cuisine ranges from local fast foods to international flavors – Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Mexican, Italian, French, Chinese, Hawaiian, and Pacific Rim fusion. This is certainly the place to be if you are hungry! 

Of course, perfection cannot be achieved unless all roads lead to the location. The Pali Highway  takes its traffic right into the center of Kailua Town direct from downtown Honolulu, while the H-3 is just five minutes from where North Kalaheo Avenue becomes Kaneohe Bay Drive. The H-3 takes you to Daniel K Inouye (Honolulu) International Airport in just 25 minutes. 

Close enough but far enough away from the sounds of traffic, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sounds of the surf rolling in and out, refreshed and ready for a drive to the North Shore on Kamehameha (Kam) Highway, which you can pick up before the Pali makes its last stretch up the mountain through the tunnel. Once on Kam Highway, just follow it all the way through Kaneohe, past Kualoa Ranch, the Crouching Lion, the Polynesian Cultural Center, past shrimp shacks serving garlic shrimp from their own shrimp farms to Turtle Bay; past famous surfing beaches (Sunset, Pipeline, Waimea) to Haleiwa, then eventually you’ll reach Kailua again by way of the H-2 and H-3.   

Once home, you can walk onto what seems like your very own private beach fronting Ho`o Maika`i and you remember that you needn’t go any further. You are hypnotized by the beauty of Kailua Beach and its tempting turquoise waters once again. You are home. 

Take us up on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Experience the spirt of Aloha that thrives in Kailua – the friendly people who work in the shops and stores, the visitors you see on the street in Kailua Town, and the local folks you encounter on the beach. They will all eagerly share their welcoming Aloha. It’s the real thing! It’s Kailua and you can be a part of it. This is your time to own a piece of Aloha, a street-to-beach site that is filled with history and can provide you with all that Kailua offers – including its soft sands, broad beaches, awe-inspiring views of small islands sitting in a stunning turquoise sea. This chance to be in the right place at the right time sprinkled with a bit of Hawaiian magic doesn’t come along very often! Only you can make it come true for you!
