Live Away From The Crowds at Kapolei
published on 2016-05-18
Honolulu is definitely where the action is on Oahu, but living in an action-packed urban epicenter isn’t for everyone. If you’re among the many condo and townhome buyers that prefer laidback, resort-style living with easy access to Honolulu, you’re in luck. Kapolei is just 21 miles from big city work and play, and it offers an island lifestyle all its own. Dubbed “The Second City of Oahu”, this town is home to Wet ‘n Wild Hawaii, the University of Hawaii-West Oahu, Kapolei Commons and an inviting assortment of restaurants and entertainment. More reasons for living in Kapolei are coming. Ka Makana Ali I – the second largest shopping complex on the entire Hawaiian Islands – opens in late 2016. Anchored by Macy’s, the 1.4 million square-foot mega-center will contain 150 shops, restaurants and amusement venues, two hotels and LEED-certified office space.
Despite an up-and-coming business community, many Kapolei area residents work in Honolulu and commute via H-1. But the Honolulu Rail Transit Project – an expansion of Honolulu Area Rapid Transit (HART) – will link the Kapolei area to 21 major stops in Honolulu. Phase I at Aloha Stadium is slated to open in 2018, and Phase II at Ala Moana Center is scheduled for 2019. The Kapolei metro area includes Makakilo, Kalaeloa (formerly Naval Air Station Barbers Point), Campbell Industrial Park, which utilizes Barbers Point Harbor as its deep water port, and Ko Olina – the premier leeward coast community that combines upscale resort living with visitor favorites like Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club and Disney’s Aulani Resort.
One of newest residential additions to Kapolei is Ko Olina, home to resort hotels, golf, and best of all - townhomes and condos. If you want to live the resort life, this is definitely a good choice. Get totally carefree living at the Beach Villas a Ko Olina, where the pool is large and the ocean views are larger, especially on the penthouse floor. The other options at Ko Olina are townhomes, which allow you to spread out and not bother with an elevator.
If you don't want the extra expense of living at Ko Olina, consider a townhome in the Makakilo area. Westview at Makakilo Heights is a lower priced option, and because this community is set up on a hillside, some residences have an ocean view.
If you want to leave the hustle and bustle city life behind and live the relaxing resort life you once associated with vacations and weekends, contact us today. We can help find the condo or townhome in Kapolei just for you.
