Sponsored by Elite Pacific Properties

On your next vacation, skip the busy hotel and opt for a more luxurious hideaway. Whether you want ocean or mountain views, a private secluded bungalow, or lush forest setting, Elite Vacation Rentals will find it for you. Elite Pacific Properties Realtor-Associates Sasha Capone and Jenny Kono joined HI Now host Kanoe Gibson on set to showcase two amazing properties.

Portlock Ocean House
This 8,800 interior square foot home with six bedrooms and six bathrooms is the newest residence in the collection of ultra-luxury homes designed by renowned Hawaii Architect Jim McPeak and built by San Diego based developer Mark Gosselin. This estate is a modern take on Oahu’s well-known Banyan House. It captures a similar style of oversized, grand spaces all centered around the stunning ocean view.

With three ocean view suites, each room affords its own level of comfort and privacy. Each bedroom is spacious with its own en suite bathroom. The upstairs master has its own sitting room with a desk and the downstairs master has an extended split-level room with gym equipment.

The builder’s trademark style was used throughout the home and is quickly apparent with the round-about driveway, floating step entrance and oversized front door. The grand room which is the center of the home, boasts 25-foot ceilings and endless ocean views. Its indoor waterfall only adds to the already relaxing atmosphere.

Designed for Hawaii’s signature indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the grand room’s doors pocket back entirely and open up the home to the outdoor lounge and ocean side yard. The infinity-edge pool and jacuzzi disappear into the horizon and pull the ocean even closer to you.

Beneath the ocean side yard is a hidden sand terrace with two chaise lounges. It is like your own private cove perched above Oahu’s most stunning seascape. Just below the same terrace is your private ocean access to the Portlock Tide Pools where dipping your toes and searching for hermit crabs, shells and colorful reef fish is only too fun.

Located in south east Oahu, Portlock is a desirable, affluent neighborhood known for its luxurious estate homes with ocean views. Overlooking Maunalua Bay, Portlock offers a unique perspective facing west where spectacular sunsets over Diamond Head can be enjoyed each evening. Though Portlock itself has no sandy beach, the famous snorkeling paradise, Hanauma Bay, is just around the corner. Also conveniently nearby is Hawaii Kai Towne Center and Koko Marina filled with shops, eateries, adventure tour companies and much more! This neighborhood is perfect for a family that wants a little more space, a little more privacy and a more local island experience.

This vacation home has been registered as a Transient Accommodation with the State of Hawaii – HAWAII TAX ID TA- W01690352-01

Gather in the luxurious, modern style living, kitchen and dining area which opens up to the outdoor lanai.

Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and personal closet space. The master suite features a sumptuous walk-in closet, private office nook space and luxurious bathroom with a tub and walk-in shower. With privacy in mind, each room features a television, electric shades and central air conditioning temperature controls. At the Park Lane Ocean suite, relaxation is not optional…it is inevitable.

Located on the fourth floor, this suite boasts spectacular Pacific Ocean and Ala Moana Beach Park views from the living room and outdoor spacious lanai.

Barbecue at your own private grill after a fun-filled day, or enjoy cocktails as you take in the sunset.

Outside of the Ocean suite, Park Lane provides a generous amount of resort-like amenities including an expansive outdoor barbecue with entertaining area, sun-drenched pool and hot tub, fitness center, spa, private dining areas, and 24-hour security.
