Diamond Head Real Estate – CPR & PUD Cluster Developments

Perhaps you already concluded that Diamond Head is the ultimate place to call your home, but you desire a less dense living environment than the much talked about world famous popular Gold Coast high rise condos or the more affordable Pualei Circle and Monserrat Ave / Kanaina Ave condos.

If that is you and you are looking for¬†something special, than here is your ultimate compilation of off-the-beaten-path, little talked about Diamond Head CPR’s and PUD cluster developments. ¬†These are residential developments that share some common elements, e.g. driveway, etc.

Our list of Diamond Head CPR’s and PUD cluster developments¬†does not include any high rise condos. Here you will only find more exclusive, less dense Diamond Head real estate, including detached single family homes, duplexes, townhouses and other low density Diamond Head condos.

Before we dive into the list, it is good to understand the difference between owning a CPR and a PUD:

  • A CPR (Condominium Property Regime) refers to a specific type of ownership where you own a ‚Äėcondominium unit‚Äô and a percentage of undivided interest in the common and limited common elements of the CPR project. This condo ‚Äėunit‚Äô could either be a detached single family home, a townhouse, or an apartment¬†style unit above or below another unit.
    Common elements could be driveways, landscaped grounds, pool, clubhouse or an elevator in a high rise. The land under and adjacent to your unit is either a common element, or a limited common element for your exclusive use.
    The key point with a CPR is the land is proportionately owned by all owners in the project.
    You will recognize CPR units by their last digit in the TMK number, e.g.:  1-3-1-40-4-0001 (CPR unit #0001)
  • A PUD (Planned Unit Development) is a cluster development or subdivision where you own a ‚Äėunit‚Äô and a percentage of interest in the common elements similar to a CPR, except the land underneath and adjacent to your unit is not a common or limited common element.¬† You own your land entirely!

Ready to explore the best kept secrets that Diamond Head has to offer?
Some of these hidden real estate treasures are tucked away behind private security gates, some enjoy direct access to pristine and otherwise hard to get to Diamond Head Beach.
Some offer enviable ocean and park views and some have similar names that could easily be mixed up.
But, all of them offer the ultimate Diamond Head lifestyle previously enjoyed by royalty, alluring and desired by many, organized here for your discerning consideration.

The famous Diamond Head lighthouse marks the most southern point of the island of Oahu.
Going in a west-to-east direction along Diamond Head’s southern shore at Kapiolani Park we start..

1.) La Pietra    (TMK: 1-3-1-29-33)

La Pietra Diamond Head Townhomes - Drone Photo
La Pietra

Just above Kapiolani Park¬†at¬†the foot of the¬†most western Diamond Head slope sits the popular gated La Pietra townhouse community developed in 1970 on 5.5 acres, consisting of 38 two story townhomes¬†(no neighbor above or below).¬† All La Pietra townhomes are¬†arranged in 19 duplexes with adjacent carports along the private one-way street La Pietra Circle, a loop that is guarded by a¬†24/7 security guard at the entrance to the project off Poni Moi Rd, above Paki Ave.¬† La Pietra’s street address includes all La Pietra Circle street numbers, 3005¬†through 3091 La Pietra Circle with units being numbered 1 through 38.¬† See the Final Public Report here.

La Pietra townhouses¬†are constructed primarily with wood frame on concrete slab, wood exterior with some lava rock wall accents and¬†a wood shake Dickey roof. Each unit comes¬†with an adjacent¬†2-car carport.¬†The original design included only four floor plans with¬†2 bedrooms, 2 bath and up to 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, with between 2,152 and up to about 3,000 sq ft¬†interior living space. La Pietra’s¬†signature design feature¬†include the soaring double height¬†open ceiling in the living room area with huge tall windows, and¬†a ‘floating’ staircase leading up to the second¬†floor. Some of the original floor plans have been¬†modified and expanded since.

La Pietra townhouses also feature private yard areas, large patios and plenty lanais. These townhouses sport a generous layout and size and therefore feel very much like a single family home rather than your typical townhouse.

The La Pietra project includes a swimming pool and beautiful lush green mature landscaping. The overall project feel is tropical, elegant but unpretentious and comfortable. Two pet dogs are allowed, no weight limit. La Pietra is within a stone throw from the beach and slightly elevated above, next to the adjacent popular Kapiolani Park, yet hidden from public view and guarded by a 24/7 security guard.  Most units offer tree top and garden views with only peek-a-boo ocean views, if any. But you can sense that the beach is so very close. This is where royalty used to live. It is easy to see why.

2.) Queens Court at Kapiolani    (TMK: 1-3-1-34-21)

Queens Court at Kapiolani - Drone Photo
Queens Court at Kapiolani

You can’t live any closer to Kapiolani Park than at the Queens Court at Kapiolani townhomes located on a 16,857 sq ft corner lot at Hibiscus Dr and Poni Moi Rd.
These 3-story ‚ÄėSan Francisco‚Äô style townhouses (no neighbor above or below) were developed in 1984, featuring stucco exterior and a flat roof.¬† A total of 4 townhouses are split up and arranged in two separate duplexes.

The first duplex is accessible from Hibiscus Dr and includes: 3002 Hibiscus Dr #1 and 3004 Hibiscus Dr #2.
The second duplex is immediately behind and accessible from Poni Moi Rd and includes: 2931 Poni Moi Rd #3 and 2929 Poni Moi Rd #4.

Each unit is a 3-Bedr, 2.5-Bath corner townhouse with 2,090 sq ft interior living space with large patio space and lanais.  Each townhouse feels like a single family home with a private lushly landscaped yard and a 2-car garage on the ground floor.  The property is gated from the street.

The units have been upgraded and remodeled over the years, e.g. unit #1 has a private pool and hot tub. Unit #3 has a private elevator for easy access to all three levels.

Queens Court at Kapiolani townhouses offer a desirable quiet location, security and privacy with a peek-a-boo ocean view between the lush treetops at the bottom of Diamond Head.

3.) Diamond Point Villas    (TMK: 1-3-1-034-015)

Diamond Point Villas - Drone Photo
Diamond Point Villas

This is a duplex on a 6,492 sq ft corner lot at Hibiscus Dr and the private road Alapali Pl.  The original 2-story home was built in 1937 (!), lovingly restored and converted into a legal duplex in 1985.
See the Final Public Report here.

The simple wood frame design shows a humble board and batten exterior, with an asphalt shingle roof.
The address includes 3020 Hibiscus Dr #1, and 3022 Hibiscus Dr #2.

3020 Hibiscus Dr #1 is a 2-story, 2-Bdr, 3-Bath unit with 1,528 sq ft interior living space and a nice garden area.
3022 Hibiscus Dr #2 is a single level 2-Bdr, 1-Bath unit with 692 sq ft interior living space.

Each unit has a single enclosed garage on the lower street level and space to park an additional car in the driveway in front of each respective garage.

With a slight elevation above Diamond Head Rd you can sense the closeness to the ocean and possibly get a peek-a boo ocean view between the Kapiolani Park tree tops. A narrow right of way walking path starts immediately across the street and gives you a direct straight path to the ocean.

The duplex (both units together) sold most recently at $2.15Mill in 2013 to an investor.

4.) 3019 and 3033 Alapali Pl    (TMK: 1-3-1-34-18)

3019 & 3033 Alapali Pl - Drone Photo
3019 & 3033 Alapali Pl

At the top of Alapali Pl, just above the ‘Villas at Diamond Head Point’ CPR project¬†is an impressive 2 detached, 2-story single family home CPR.¬†¬†Developed in 2009, designed by award winning architect James McPeak and inspired by the famous grand Bulgari estates in Bali, these are two modern grand estate size homes built on an elevated graded 16,026 sq ft lot zoned R-5 tucked away against the bottom of Diamond Head and towering atop a huge retaining rock wall overlooking the neighborhood¬†from the highest elevation¬†at the very private end of Alapali Pl cul-de-sac.¬† See Final Public Report here.

Both homes were designed on a grand scale with the finest modern appointments. including double height soaring ceilings, huge walls of glass, floating stairwells, massive decks, each with its own private pool and hot tub. A motor court easily accommodates 5 and 4 cars for each respective residence. The exterior showcases a unique artistic bread rock veneer and a low pitch roof.  The commanding impressive ocean views and Gold Coast and Waikiki skyline leave you speechless.

We lovingly call the property ‚Äėthe rock star house’¬†referring to¬†the time¬†when it¬†was temporarily occupied¬†by a musical hip hop icon¬†together with¬†his entourage. The property¬†was a good fit to accommodate¬†his desire for a private and¬†lavish lifestyle.

Reportedly one time a Porsche Carrera registered to the celebrity occupant was found wrapped around a tree at the bottom of the hill with no driver to be found. When questioned, neither the owner nor his entourage admitted to having driven the car.

The larger of the two homes 3019 Alapali Pl #A with 5 bedrooms and a movie theatre sold most recently in 2010 to a local business owner at $5.350Mill. A fabulous price for the buyer of this property at a time when the market was still considered depressed from the after effects of the financial crisis.  The new owner since purchased the property in front, to ensure the amazing ocean views into perpetuity.

Regardless if you prefer to live like a rock star, or live like a king, this property might be a good match for you.

5.) Villas at Diamond Head    (TMK: 1-3-1-34-16)

Villas at Diamond Head - Drone Photo
Villas at Diamond Head

This is a CPR with only 2 detached 2-story single family homes developed in 1991 & 1998 on a 12,603 sq ft lot zoned R-5 at the foot of the most western Diamond Head slope.

The address is 3015 Alapali Pl #A, and 3017 Alapali Pl #B, located halfway up the private road between ‚ÄėDiamond Point Villas‚Äô and the ‚Äėrock star house‚Äô.

Both homes share a narrow driveway off Alapali Pl, a quiet cul-de-sac just above Hibiscus Dr.
The architecture is mildly Mediterranean inspired with red concrete roof and stucco exterior.  See the Final Public Report here.

The project enjoys a quiet location close to Kapiolani Park and off course the beach. Residents cherish modest ocean views from their roof deck.

6.) Hibiscus Place    (TMK: 1-3-1-34-47)

Hibiscus Place Homes - Drone Photo
Hibiscus Place

Immediately to the left of the 6-unit ‘Diamond Head Landing’ townhouse project, at the top end of the private Hibiscus Pl is a 1929 historic residence that was converted into a unique duplex CPR in 2005.

The address for Hibiscus Place includes 2954 Hibiscus Pl #1 and 2956 Hibiscus Pl #2.

With great attention to quality and detail, this historic property took the 2004-2005 Historic Hawaii Foundation Preservation Honor Award for restoration.  Rightfully so.

This exquisite former Mediterranean Estate, now duplex, perched against the foot of Diamond Head at the highest elevation point on Hibiscus Pl, features a red tile concrete roof and stucco exterior. Charming French doors lead to balconies and private brick patios surrounded by lush tropical gardens. An enchanting combination of Italy and Spain in a hidden tropical retreat.

Privacy and commanding shoreline ocean views are yours with Kapiolani Park at your feet.

7.) Diamond Head Landing   (TMK:1-3-1-34-8)

Diamond Head Landing - Drone Photo
Diamond Head Landing

Diamond Head Landing is a 6-unit townhouse cluster developed in 1980 and perched at the foot of Diamond Head accessible from Hibiscus Dr by way of an unassuming steep driveway easement labeled Hibiscus Pl.  See Final public report here.

These townhouses are arranged as follows: Up Hibiscus Pl first driveway on the right includes a grouping of 3 attached units, 2935 Hibiscus Pl #E, 2937 Hibiscus Pl #D, and 2939 Hibiscus Pl #C. The only free standing, lone detached unit 2933 Hibiscus Pl #F is located at the end of this driveway bordering Diamond Head preservation land.
We consider unit #F the only single family home in this CPR development, all others are attached townhomes.

If you drive up Hibiscus Pl further to the top you will find the second grouping on your right, a duplex consisting of 2947 Hibiscus Pl #B, and 2949 Hibiscus Pl #A, the final and last one at the top right end of the cul-de sac.
Diamond Head’s preservation land is behind.

These Mediterranean style inspired 3-bedroom, 2 or 2.5 bath townhomes are designed as split-level, two story units with 2,020 sq ft to 2,320 sq ft of interior living space, situated above their respective street level enclosed double garage. There are no neighbors above or below.  Design features include concrete tile roofs, white stucco exterior and some interior stucco as well.  Impressive vaulted cathedral ceilings and some large open decks complete the package. Most of the homes are cooled with split AC systems.

There is a shared community swimming pool tucked behind the duplex at the top of the property.

Diamond Head Landing residents enjoy a quiet location¬†with¬†a¬†modest 50′¬†elevation¬†above Kapiolani Park, with¬†pleasant green park views and the ocean beyond.

8.) Villas At Diamond Head Point    (TMK: 1-3-1-33-66)

Villas at Diamond Head Point - Aerial Photo
Villas at Diamond Head Point

Hidden behind Gold Coast’s famous¬†Kainalu condo is a 2-story duplex developed in 1983 on a prime 9,111 sq ft ocean front lot, accessible by way of a private road easement just to the left of the Kainalu condo.¬† The address is 2801 Coconut Ave and includes unit #A&G together,¬†and unit #A-1, closer to Kainalu.

Each unit has an attached enclosed double garage.  See Final public report here.

Each unit enjoys its own designated magical ocean front lawn area. A rock seawall protects the property from wave action.  A secluded beach, hard to reach for the general public, is immediately to the east of the property.

What makes this property location stand out is the remarkable rare combination of the best of both worlds:

a.) the unparalleled private and quiet ocean front setting, and
b.) the amazing close proximity to popular Gold Coast activity centers e.g Outrigger Canoe Club, Elks Club, ..and even Waikiki.

Robert Kiyosaki, author of the book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, shows on the ownership record. Perhaps what is good for him might be good for you too, if one of these units were to become available for sale again.

9.)  The 3 Bali homes    (TMK:  1-3-1-36-6, 21 & 22)

Three Oceanfront Bali Homes in Diamond Head - Aerial Photo
3 Bali Homes

The Bali homes is what we lovingly refer to the 3 gorgeous Bali style inspired 2-story homes developed in 2006 on three adjacent oceanfront lots at 3125, 3133 and 3139 Diamond Head Rd.  Look for the three mailboxes built into the lava rock wall with a huge Traveler’s palm flower behind it, located just two lots past the Makalei Beach Park, or five lots before the Leahi Beach Park.

Hidden behind the rock wall and the large wooden gate are three truly gorgeous island style homes surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. Each home features between 4,509 and 5,828 sq ft of interior living space with vaulted wood trimmed ceilings and large sliding glass pocket doors for a truly remarkable indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

Signature design features include beautiful Ohia hardwood floors, Tasmanian Blackwood floors and extensive use of lime stone and travertine throughout.  All bedrooms are en suite bedrooms with private decks and lanais surrounded by tropical privacy landscaping. The homes feature stucco exterior on the ground floor and board and batten design on the second level as well as a wood shake Dickey roof.

Each Bali home is located on its own private oceanfront lot between 17,019 to 18,477 sq ft and features its own ocean side private pool and cabanas and a private grassy lawn leading up to the ocean’s edge. The homes also come with their own two or three car garage and a designated guest parking area close to the entry gate.

Often mistaken for a single family CPR development, each home actually has its own designated TMK number. The quality of home design and construction plus the magical private ocean front location make this one of our favorite Diamond Head single family home cluster development on the list.

The largest one of the three, 3139 Diamond Head Rd, we lovingly refer to¬†as the ‘Move My Cheese’ house.¬†This goes back to some years ago at a¬†time when the home was owned by Dr. Spencer Johnson, renowned author of the book “Who Moved My Cheese?”
A notable more recent sale of one of the Bali homes, 3125 Diamond Head Rd, recorded 5/20/2013 for $11,250,000.

Be quick and decisive the next time one of these remarkable trophy homes becomes available.

10.) Kuu Makana at Diamond Head    (TMK: 1-3-1-36-4)

Kuu Makana at Diamond Head - Aerial Photo
Kuu Makana at Diamond Head

Kuu Makana at Diamond Head is a 4 unit, numbered ‘A’ through ‘D’,¬†oceanfront townhouse fourplex¬†located at 3165 Diamond Head Rd just west of Leahi Beach Park. The project includes beautiful landscaping, a¬†front motor court surrounded by 4 double garages with a gorgeous central¬†Plumeria tree and an awesome¬†common area ocean front lawn. Built in 1982¬†featuring dramatic huge covered ocean front lanais, extensive use of Koa wood and elegant exterior and interior coral rock accent walls as well as intricate artistic wood design finishes.

This is a classy complex with two single level corner-end oceanfront units on the ground floor, and two single level corner-end oceanfront units above, on the 2nd floor. The clever design allows all units to be larger than 3,300 sq ft in interior living space plus generous covered ocean front lanais for a total of over 4,000 sq ft single level living space right on the ocean. Sweet!

Each unit comes with a coral fire place and an enclosed double garage. Your guests may park in a designated visitor parking area at the entrance to the motor court. A secure gate separates the motor court from the front entrance to the units. If you live here, you would drive into your garage and access your unit from your garage back door securely into your home.

On the ocean side the property is protected with a sea wall. There really is no beach in front of the property. Instead you have a small sandy beach easily reachable just about 7 lots going west just past the Makalei Beach Park.

A noteworthy recent sale at Kuu Makana was unit #D which sold at $7.5Mill in July 2013.

Kuu Makana offers a relaxing single level ocean front lifestyle with endless and forever protected ocean views. Simply priceless!

11.) Leahi Estates    (TMK: 1-3-1-35-2)

Leahi Estates in Diamond Head - Aerial Photo
Leahi Estates

Leahi Estates consists of 6 single family homes in a CPR community on the mauka side of Diamond Head Rd across form Leahi Beach Park.  See the Final public report here.

Three homes are secured behind an automatic gate almost like a small valley community on its own. The address includes 3190, 3196 and 3200 Diamond Head Rd.
The other 3 homes are right next door up a steep driveway that is not gated. The address includes 3210, 3220 and 3222 Diamond Head Rd.
These latter 3 homes elevated on a knoll enjoy impressive ocean views and feel more like three independent lots, rather than a single family home CPR.

Each of these 6 homes is architecturally unique in design displaying a variety of styles. One of them even incorporates some of the naturally occurring steep rock, featuring it as part of the interior living room design, giving the home a unique connection to Diamond Head.

Noteworthy is 3222 Diamond Head Rd #6 within the project. An impressive Tuscany inspired beautifully restored in 2009 large villa with cathedral ceilings and about 5,000 sq ft interior living space on a large 21,000 sq ft mostly level lot with stunning ocean views, a very rare combination in the Diamond Head neighborhood where most lots are either smaller, or sloped. A large pool and cottage complete the full package. Simply perfect. Sold in 2011 at $10.6Mill.

Diamond Head Beach CPR - Aerial Photo
Diamond Head Beach

Just a few lots east of the famous Diamond Head lighthouse, past the Diamond Head lookout, hidden behind a private gate with the address 3701 Diamond Head Rd is a private driveway that leads straight down to the ocean servicing 4 individual lots #A, B, C, and #D.

3701 Diamond Head Rd #D, the largest lot of them, located at the bottom of the driveway with 36,278 sq ft and a whopping 198.35 ft beach frontage.  This has been developed as a detached single family home CPR.

CPR #1 is a 17,005 sq ft  lot with a  2 story, 5 Bedr, 4 Bath, 2 half Baths home originally built in 1967 and renovated in 2005. The property even sports a private tennis court very close the beach (!)
CPR #2 is a 19,273 sq ft lot.

13.) Ka’alawai Condo¬†¬†¬† (TMK: 1-3-1-38-31)

Kaalawai Homes in Diamond Head - Aerial Photo

This is a detached single family home CPR development with only 2 homes.  The address is 3711 Diamond Head Rd #A & #B, on a 24,673 sq ft lot makai side of Diamond Head Rd.

Unit #A is a 4 Bedr, 3 Bath home with 3,230 sq ft interior living space built in 1988 on a 10,083 sq ft lot.
Unit #B is a 2 Bedr, 3.5 Bath home with 2,920 sq ft interior living space built in 2010, on a 12,336 sq ft lot, the slightly larger of the two lots that is the second house on the right side going down the private driveway towards the beach.

Access is via an unmarked, easy to miss, roadway easement off Diamond Head Rd.  Look for the driveway immediately past 3705 Diamond Head Rd.

14.) Diamond Head Estates    (TMK: 1-3-1-38-1)

Diamond Head Estates - Aerial Photo
Diamond Head Estates

Another little known detached single family home CPR with only 2 units is on a 26,232 sq ft prime beach front lot.The¬†first home was developed in 1961.¬† The second home was a simple ‘post and pier’ construction Cedar wood beach shack built in 1974, but¬†has since¬†been replaced with an impressive¬†newly built residence in 2005.

Diamond Head Estates project address includes: 3721 Diamond Head Rd (#2) and 3725 Diamond Head Rd (#1).

Access is via the same unmarked, easy to miss, roadway easement as the ‚ÄėKa‚Äôalawai Condo‚Äô. Look for the driveway immediately¬†past 3705 Diamond Head Rd.
The Diamond Head Estates CPR is further down at the bottom of this driveway on the beach.

Both homes have a direct south facing exposure, one on the beach, the second newer built home right above. The older ocean side home has an old rock seawall that protrudes unusually far on to this stretch of Diamond Head Beach.  Both, the pristine beach and the ocean views, are exceptional from this location.

15.) Ainamalu

Ainamalu Homes in Diamond Head - Aerial Photo

Ainamalu is¬†a¬†gated beachfront community, a cluster PUD development (not a CPR) of 11 single family homes with a ‘Spanish bungalow style’¬†architectural design flair, stucco exterior, red tile roofs and vaulted cathedral ceilings.

The gated entrance is off DH Rd just before Palaoa Pl (when coming from Waikiki side).
The address includes 3747 to 3767 Diamond Head Rd.

A common driveway is winding down the slopes towards the pristine beach, and splitting up into a horseshoe arrangement with a pristine center lawn and the bottom 5 homes surrounding it.

It is this bottom section of 5 homes closest to the beach away from DH Rd with the benefit of the generous center lawn that are in the most desirable location in the project.
This clever arrangement allows for maximum views towards the ocean and almost feels like the center lawn is part of each individual property, yet it is shared equally by all. A small private gate at the bottom of the center lawn allows access to the pristine and quiet beach.  Very charming.

16.) Isles at Diamond Head Beach    (TMK: 1-3-1-39-1)

Isles at Diamond Head Beach - Aerial Photo
Isles at Diamond Head Beach

Isles at Diamond Head is a gated beachfront CPR community with six beachfront detached single family homes designed by architect Edward Sullam and completed in 1986.  See the Final Public Report here.

The project is gated on both entry points and inconspicuous, away from busy traffic located at the end of two unassuming cul-de-sacs off Diamond Head Rd and Kulamanu St.

Three of the homes, 218, 220 and 222 Kaimanawai Pl, are accessible through the automatic gate at the end of Kaimanawai Pl. The other three homes, 215, 217 and 219 Kaalawai Pl, are accessible through the automatic gate at the left end of Kaalawai Pl.

All six homes are arranged in an open ‘V-shape’ layout towards the ocean, to ensure that the homes in the back still¬†have a respectable¬†ocean view¬†along and to¬†the side of the homes in front. A gorgeous green center lawn shared and cherished¬†by the residents and lush landscaping make up the well maintained common grounds.
There are also 9 guest stalls within the project.

Each home has a 2-story design with concrete tile roof, stucco exterior, large roof overhangs and an attached double garage. Each home features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms with between 3,100 and 3,600 sq ft interior living area.  The interior is designed with vaulted ceilings upstairs and architecturally interesting soffited ceilings in the downstairs living area.

Since these are single family homes in a CPR project, the lots are considered limited common elements, for the exclusive use of the respective resident, ranging between approx. 5,000 and 8,000 sq ft.

This project is adjacent to, just west of the smaller ‘Sands at Kaalawai’ development.

A few of the Isles at Diamond Head Beach homes have their own pools, but the beach is just past the lawn outside your backyard gate.  Did we mention the secluded sandy bottom swimming hole?  Life is a vacation.

17.) Sands at Kaalawai¬† –¬† aka Kuine Place

Sands at Kaalawai Homes in Diamond Head - Aerial Photo
Sands at Kaalawai

A gated beach front community built in 1988. Look for the Kuine Pl street sign just past Kaimanawai Pl, Kuine Pl is actually a private St shared between 4 home owners. Address¬†includes 108, 120, 136 and 148 Kuine Place.¬† This¬†development is adjacent to,¬†just east¬†of the ‘Isles at Diamond¬†Head Beach’ project.

This is a 4-unit residential single family home cluster development (PUD, rather than a CPR) on a long, skinny lot going from top of Kulamanu St all the way straight down to the beach with a shared driveway (Kuine Pl).

The 4 homes are located to the right along the shared driveway. All 4 homes have a similar split-level 2 story design with 12 ft cathedral ceilings in the living room and kitchen area, a double garage and a rooftop sun deck accessible with a spiral staircase to enjoy the ocean views.

A couple of the homes have a small pool even though the lot sizes tend to be small, about 5,000 sq ft. The exception is 108 Kuine Pl, at the bottom of the property, with an impressive 13,000+ sq ft lot size right on the beach.

Besides the secure automatic gate and the common driveway, there is a common guest parking area in the middle of the project under a gorgeous Monkeypod tree.
The beach has some corals but there is a sandy bottom swimming hole just outside your backyard. Life is great.

18.) Kokoke Lani    (TMK: 1-3-1-40-4)

Kokoke Lani

‚ÄėKokoke Lani‚Äô means ‚Äėclose to heaven‚Äô, and the name could not be more fitting. This is an exceptional¬†brand new, currently under construction, gated 2 single family home CPR project on a 30,370 sq ft beach front lot immediately east of the ‘Sands at Kaalawai’ project.

Kokoke Lani is developed by the Tom Nicholson Group,¬†an established custom luxury home builder¬†with a proven track record of 20+ stunning residences throughout Diamond Head, Kahala and Black Point. ¬†These homes designed by famous local architect Philip ‘Pip’ White have set a new standard¬†for ultimate island style luxury residences.

Signature design features include large sliding pocket doors for seamless indoor outdoor entertainment spaces.  If you want the best, this is for you. To be completed Summer 2016.  The address is 4031 Kulamanu St #A & B.

4031 Kulamanu St #B Рis a 4BR, 5BA, with ~4,200sqf interior living space and an ocean side pool deck directly situated on prime Diamond Head Beach. This home already sold in 2015 prior to completion and before it was listed for sale!  Congratulations to the lucky early bird buyer recognizing this one of a kind opportunity.

4031 Kulamanu St #A Рis an impressive 4BR, 6BA, with ~6,400+sqf interior living space, one house away from pristine Diamond Head Beach.  With the large lot size on sloped terrain, this home will have impressive ocean views with the beachfront home #B just a few steps below.

If you want brand new real estate in Honolulu and you are looking for the finest in home design, look no further. Here is the best of the best to indulge yourself. Unit #A is almost completed and currently the only brand new home available in Diamond Head this close to prime beaches, currently (May 2016) listed for sale at $7.6Mill.

Take note, this project represents what was the last buildable vacant oceanfront lot in the entire Diamond Head area.  Perched between the ocean and Diamond Head, there simply is no more remaining buildable space to develop.
The forever finite and scarce Diamond Head real estate supply creates tremendous value and an unlimited upside potential.  РThis lifestyle is priceless, what are you waiting for?


Let us know what you think.  Perhaps you have a unique experience you would like to share regarding Diamond Head real estate and the lifestyle that comes along with it.
We like to hear from you.
