In 2013, the designers and developers at DR Horton, Schuler Division, were in the process of taking their imaginations from the drawing board to the land. Oahu’s Second City – Kapolei – was finally taking shape and Awakea at Mehana was soon to be part of this new growing, thriving community. Building started in 2013 and by 2015, 115 units were completed.
Live, work and play was and is the mantra of the many families who have made Awakea at Mehana their home in Kapolei. Two-story two and three bedroom townhomes, plus some with flexible street-level space for an in-law unit, an office, a café, or a solo entrepreneur’s store-front dream have made this community the answer to work-life balance. Revisiting the age-old concept of living above the family business, while adding walking and biking paths, a modern recreation center that everyone calls the MAC (Mehana Activity Center) and includes a swimming pool, basketball courts, a pet park, a children’s playground, and even a convenience store, is what makes Awakea at Mehana a very sought-after neighborhood when you are looking for a home for sale in Kapolei
Bound by Kapolei Parkway, Kukulu Street Loop, Maunawai Street, and Kakala Street in Kapolei, Awakea is a community within a community. The small privately-owned businesses successfully serve their neighbors while those needing additional supplies can shop at the supermarket and other stores at the Kapolei Village Center
, just a hop, skip and jump away.
Families with children in elementary school are in walking distance of the highly desirable public Hookele Elementary School
and Kapolei High school
. Their future education is also close to home at the University of Hawaii – West Oahu campus. Nine golf courses are in close proximity, as is the beach, a water park, the Kapolei Entertainment Center, and big box stores like Target, Costco and Walmart.
The townhomes in this master-planned community all have garages, appliances and private fenced yards. Many have vinyl plank flooring, split a/c, all are well-maintained, views include walking paths and wooded areas. The largest of these homes have 1800+ square feet of living space with three bedrooms and three baths.
One of many good things about living at Awakea at Mehana is the relaxed small-town ambience. Walk down the street and it will most likely be your neighbor sitting at the small café. You stop and shop and grab a cup of Kona and chat. The neighborhood is safe and secure with some of that security based on the fact that everyone belongs to the Homeowners Association. The Association’s rules and regulations protect your investment and maintain your home’s aesthetic value. You can be assured that your neighbor won’t be a junk collector with old cars filling up the yard and another neighbor won’t be painting their home purple.
Spacious, open-plan townhomes, each with a lanai on tree-lined streets where the sun shines most days of the year – this is Awakea at Mehana – loosely translated as the warmth of the midday sun. You can make it your place in the sun to live, work and play.
