Kahuna Road is in Kapaa and loops around Kawaihau Road. I like Kahuna road because it’s a quiet road and there is a quiet stream along parts of it known to locals as Jonny Tex. To get to Kahuna road follow the main road up to Kapaa (Kawaihau road) and up towards the Makaleha mountains. There are two ways to get there either make the first right on Kahuna road. Or travel until Kawaihau Road ends at the bridge and either head right or left.
Parts of Kahuna road can have a similar feel to Wailua Homesteads or the North shore because of its isolation and wetness. Homes in the area seem to becoming more desired and therefore increasing their value. Right now there are 3 homes listed on Kahuna Road. Two of which have just been listed and two are listed over 1 million dollars.
Taking the first right off of Kawaihau Road will lead to the first listing on Kahuna road which is 6460-B Kahuna Road. This home is on the sunnier side of Kahuna road and has your typical home floor plan with 3 bedrooms 2 baths. The yard is a nice size of half an acre and has a small in ground salt water pool with a slide! The yard is also fully fenced which is great for kids or pets. This home is listed at $614,000 MLS#275409.
Continuing along Kahuna Road you will reach the next home that just came on the market for $3,900,000.00. This home is huge with 5,001 sq ft. of living area and with a land area of 5 acres. Including an electric entry gate with 6 bedrooms 4 full baths and 2 half baths. The most intriguing feature of this home is probably the large 2nd story lanai that has amazing mountain views. This home also has an elevator and extra-large garage. 6756 Kahuna Rd., MLS#270567
The next home is towards the end (mountain side) of Kahuna Road which is my personal favorite location of the 3 homes at 7158 Kahuna Road. This listing has been listed the longest out of three listings for over 20 months. While driving to the property on the left side of the road is calming cool Jonny Tex stream. This property has a few buildings all built away from the road. The main house is 5 bedroom 4 bath that sits on 6.12 acres. There is also an octagonal shaped room used as a yoga/meeting room that has a large heated therapy bath/pool. 7158 Kahuna Rd., MLS#260008
I enjoy walking on Kahuna Road with my two dogs Sunny and Mele. Mele loves to play in puddles if she can find them. Mele is an older dog and moves really slow so at times she will lag behind on our walks. Although she is so well known in my neighborhood that two different neighbors at different times have seen her walking thinking that she was lost and drove her back home!
