Location: Kailua, Hawaii
The Skinny: If you're going to live on the island of Oahu, having a house that will match your collection of vintage Hawaiian shirts while simultaneously providing plenty of room for the extensive selection of rattan furniture you bulk-ordered from Cost Plus World Market is pono; or so, apparently, goes the thinking behind this 4,400-square-foot beachfront estate. Designed by multi-faceted AIA Award-winning architect Peter Vincent (who has designed everything from tropical resorts to school bus maintenance sheds), this fun, funky home on Lanikai Beach practically screams "Hawaii", from the turquoise-hued floors to the batten walls and ceilings, and everything in between, including the antique surfboards leaned against the wall as if awaiting the shade of Duke Kahanamoku to come striding in to borrow one to ride a tasty set of afterlife waves. The seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home also boasts an infinity pool, a gas grill for DIY luaus and, awesomely, a rope swing. It's asking $11.8M.
