The luxurious Hale Reena multi-million dollar estate located in Kailua has been the favoured holiday home of the Obamas lately and for good reasons. Five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and an Asian-style koi pond stretch over 7,000 square feet of manicured land, available for rent at $3,500 a night.
There are many amenities guests can enjoy, including a relaxing spa, pool, outdoor lanai and even a steam room. The two-week Christmas stay at the Asian-inspired estate cost the Presidential family $56,000 and they only chose Hale Reena because their preferred $10,000-a night Plantation Estate was unavailable.
Hale Reena, nicknamed the ‘second White House’ is truly spectacular with its spacious rooms, chef’s kitchen, open spaces, nature-inspired interior and many amenities to entertain guests. The oceanfront property is located in a private part of Kailua, offering stunning views of the beautiful Moluka Islands and sufficient privacy even for the First Family of America.
Guests can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere by taking a dip in the nature-inspired pool or lounge in the outdoor lanai. Located nearby are a golf course and the famous Koko Head hiking trail.
The estate is surrounded by a large deck that provides plenty of seating area to enjoy panoramic views of the ocean. All rooms are furnished with a low-key, modern aesthetic in mind and boast wooden panels, quality fabrics and more. The famous Morimotos in Waikiki restaurant is located nearby and offers fantastic dishes prepared by Masaharu Morimoto of the Food Network show ‘Iron Chef’.
Hale Reena exhibits a strong Asian theme with perfectly manicured and harmonious outdoor gardens, featuring a small bridge, stones and exotic plants. It is the ideal spot for a luxurious, low-key vacation for people who value their privacy, but want to be within short distance of modern amenities and places for entertainment.
