Obama's $14 million Hawaii vacation rental listed for sale - Lanikai, Kailua

Posted by Tony Kawaguchi, RA on Saturday, December 4th, 2010 at 12:06pm.

It has 11 bedrooms, 10 1/2 baths, 11,684 square feet of roofed living space, and it's right on one of Hawaii's best beaches in Lanikai.  This beachfront lot is nearly one acre (41,924 square feet) and has 91 feet of beach frontage.

For just $14,000,000, you can own this 1988 this resort style home, which has this large gourmet kitchen, complete with commercial style double width refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, 8 burner gas Viking range, and of course, an ocean view.  There are 2 sinks, a separate butler's pantry with prep area, and wine storage.

This is one of the 4 master suites with amazing ocean views down Lanikai beach, and the 20 foot high vaulted ceilings complete with skylights to brighten up your mornings as the sun rises over the ocean. The only problem is that the room is so big that the TV is about 20 feet away from the bed!

There are multiple slightly smaller guest suites like this one, each with lanais & ocean or garden views, wainscoting, and each with it's own private full bathroom. We wouldn't want the Presidential family to share any bathrooms with anyone would we?

Check out the courtyard which has this very large custom pool & hot tub. Notice you can see the ocean through the house from the pool.  It looks just like a resort, and actually it's nicer than many resorts in Hawaii. I was a little surprised to see that the surface wasn't done in a nice tile.

This is the main living room with 20 foot high windows that display the ocean view nicely. The white sand beach is just a few steps from this room.  My only complaint here - the furniture is kind of dated.

This large bathroom is about 350 square feet, larger than some studio apartments, and there is a 150 square foot lanai just off the bathroom with ocean view, which you can see in the mirror.  Notice the skylight above the bath. Sunlight is brought in as often as possible in this house, so that even though it's mansion size, it feels like a beach house.

 The Obamas ate their meals in this dining room, with palm trees waving on the beach in the background.

This beautiful home can be yours now, as it was listed for sale this week by Choi International. There are several other properties for sale on the beach in Hawaii, but only a select few have been rented by US Presidents.
