Location: Kailua, Hawaii
An ocean-view Hawaii home won big in this week's Curbed Comparisons rental battle, but for those with many more dollars to spare, there's something rather spectacular on offer a couple of islands away in Oahu. Commanding 1.5 acres along Kailua Beach, the neighborhood where the Obamas stayed for family vacations many years straight, the 17,333-square-foot estate is private paradise, defined.
Set among tropical gardens, the gated property comprises a five-bedroom main residence and a three-bedroom guest house, which both embrace the indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The great room, for example, opens out onto the oceanfront lawn, while bedrooms have either sliding glass doors leading to the waterfall pool and cabana area or terraces with ocean views and breezes. According to a Sotheby's spokesperson, the 2009-built estate also made an appearance on the CBS reboot of the classic police show Hawaii Five-0.
