Our latest listing at 84-575 Kili Dr. #62 in the Makaha Valley area of Waianae is an incredible value at $663,000. Built in 2015 in the gated community of Makaha Oceanview Estates, owners Bonita and John splurged on all the upgrades, both during and after construction.
"We were able to invest more into making the house our own than in making it a sound structure. The cost per square foot is less here than anywhere on the island, and HOA fees are low," says Bonita.
The kitchen is a beautiful, bright, open space connected to the family room and lanai dining space for easy entertaining, but powerful upgrades make this a nearly professional chef's workshop. Bonita is a pie-making fanatic, so she added a stainless steel portable island to make rolling out the dough easier, without crowding the room. There's plenty of granite countertop workspace available, too. So, three hungry taste-testers can perch at the nearby built-in breakfast island. After she preps, she pops the pies into her Thermador Harmony Pro dual fuel stainless oven to bake. She added bottled gas to the kitchen for more precise cooking, a rarity on Oahu! Rounding out the appliance selections are a Thermador Topaz stainless six program dishwasher and the GE Profile counter depth refrigerator. Custom task, pendant, and over counter lighting mean the right tools for the job. All together, these upgrades add over $15,000 of value!
To maximize their views of the Waianae mountains, Bonita and John added three lanais to the home. The front lanai allows them to rock on the porch and wave to the neighbors. The master bedroom lanai is an outdoor living room with fully fenced privacy for morning coffee and afternoon reading, with a front row seat to the mountain views. The sunset reflecting off of the range makes the reds, oranges, and golds of the mountains blaze! The third covered lanai is a dining space large enough for at least eight friends, directly off the kitchen for easy serving, and near the raised garden beds and fruit trees. Farm to table dining all within a few steps!
Bonita and John retired to Oahu from Texas, so they felt central air conditioning was a must-have feature! To power it and the rest of the home, they purchased and installed 26 photovoltaic panels (a $29,000 value).
Their home is just a mile from Makaha Beach Park where you can enjoy stunning sunsets every evening in Maui-like tranquility. The famous Kaena Point hike is nearby, and golf opportunities abound, with about ten courses within 20 miles of the home. Oahu's premier resort destination, Ko'Olina, is nearby with luxury hotels and condos, restaurants, lagoons, and shopping. And all of the basics such as Lowe's, Target, and the Ka Makana Ali'i Mall are about 20 minutes away in Kapolei.
Bonita says, "We were attracted to Makaha because of the beauty, peace, and lack of crowds. The night skies are full of stars and the moonrise and sunset are spectacular without city light pollution...and you can swim with the sea turtles any day."
