A Perfect Little Japanese Garden in Kailua

One of my favorite things about working with real estate is the ability to check out properties. I get to see it all, the great, the good, the bad and the ugly. This past Thursday was an especially lucky day to check out the offerings on the Windward side of Oahu: the first place we visited had this lovely garden as a surprise. The house itself was also very nice, but the garden was simply perfect.

Situated in the Bluffs neighborhood of Kailua, this small garden makes the most of its location and views. With water features, a rock garden, little benches and a nice large seating area by the lawn, it is a relaxing space you wouldn't want to leave.

Yup, this garden is so zen, I could just curl up on that sofa with a drink and a good book and while away the hours...

The front of the property definitely got curb appeal!
This perfect little retreat, along with the three bedroom two and a half bath house could be yours for just under $1.2 million.  Better yet, use the pictures as inspiration for creating your own Japanese style garden!
