Insight to Luna Kai Homes & Neighborhood
Many of the Luna Kai homes along Kalanianaole Hwy were custom built between 1963 and 1967. These homes are set back a distance from busy Kalanianaole Hwy and accessible via short private driveways shared among 4 marina front homes respectively.
The most north-western driveway is the exception, servicing only 3 marina front homes.
The shared private driveways are maintained by their respective 4 (or 3) neighbors and offer a buffer distance from the noisy road while providing ample additional car or boat parking for their residents. Most of the Luna Kai lots along Kalanianaole Hwy range between 8,125 and 9,900 sqft, that is excluding the additional shared parking / driveway area in front.
