Luna Kai

Luna Kai - The whole strip of marina front homes between Wallgreens and the bridge before Keahole st. In other words, all the homes on the marina that are along Kalanianaole Highway (a.k.a. Kal Hwy.)  The obvious drawback is the noise from the street.  Some of the homes here are on little tiny inlets off the Highway that are very hard to get to, and even harder to get out of.  A few of the little driveways are nearly impossible to turn around in.  Another draw back is the location with respect to the Tradewinds.  They blow across the wide marina in front and generate small waves, at times, and salty "on shore" winds.  Creating more maintenance issues on your docks and up keep for the house.

Having said all that, the homes on this stretch of Kal Highway can be very nice.  They were all built with nice wide marina frontage, and they face the sunrise, so you don't have the strong afternoon sun in your face.  I've seen some large 5000sqft homes in Luna Kai, built with very high end features, but most of them are from the 60's and 70's.  If you get a nice remodeled house, or one that has been rebuilt more recently, then you're going to have a nice high end home with great marina frontage.  As far as the width of the marina, many of these are a couple hundred yards across.
