Set back from the hustle and bustle of Lanikai loop, on a quaint hillside with beautiful ocean and mountain views, sits one of our all-time favorite neighborhoods.
Country Club Knoll is one of those “hidden gem” neighborhoods many only know from landmarks (“the houses above Lanikai/Ka'ohao Elementary School”), if they know about it at all! In fact, many longtime residents of Kailua are unaware of this niche neighborhood.
We know and love this neighborhood because of our family roots tied to this area. Rick’s parents/Nani’s grandparents, Mahina and Homer, have resided in Country Club Knoll for over 20 years. And going back even further, Rick's grandparents were the original owners of our family home from 1965!
Mahina’s brother, Jimmy Trask Jr., developed a number of properties in the neighborhood, including our longtime family home, which Mahina resides in to this day.
The vantage point from Mahina’s deck is pictured in the top banner, with sweeping views of Mid-Pacific Country Club, Ka'iwa Ridge (the Lanikai Pillbox Trail), Olomana, and the majestic Ko'olau Mountain Range. We have had many family dinners on this outdoor deck throughout the years and the view never gets old!
Along with the ideal location and world-class views, Country Club Knoll has a wonderful ambiance with underground utilities, sidewalks, and many longtime owner-occupants. Needless to say, properties rarely come to market in Country Club Knoll---until this past Monday, when 163 Pauahilani Way became available for sale. This listing is directly next to Mahina’s home, in a peaceful cul-de-sac with incredible views throughout.
Jimmy Trask Jr. was also the developer of 163 Pauahilani Way. It was a blast from the past walking through 163 Pauahilani Way and seeing the floor plan similarities to our family home right next door!
View the virtual tour of 163 Pauahilani Way below. As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions and have a great weekend! Until next time, Happy Aloha Friday!
