"It's time for you to experience Lanikai's best kept secret," proclaims the listing for this 4-story house on Kailua's Lanikai Beach, regularly named one of the best in the world. Perched atop a hill, the 1,223-square-foot "tree house" residence probably has all the other nifty tree houses beat in the vista department: each room opens up to unobstructed views of the coast, including the Nā Mokulua (Twin Islands). Now on the market for $3.8M, the wood-frame home offers three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and of course, an abundance of balconies. A tropical bonus: the house sits on 72,500 square feet of preserved land, covered in various species of mango trees, avocado, and other native plants.
