Welcome to the most spectacular wave in the world…..Pipeline!

It is rare that a property comes up for sale in this stretch of the Ke Nui neighborhood located on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Now, there’s a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to own not one, but two properties totaling approximately 100 linear feet of beach frontage with priceless, breathtaking views of the ocean and iconic Pipeline.

You have the option of purchasing each property separately for $10 million or combined for $20 million. The two side by side properties feature a three bedroom, 2 bath house and a charming two bedroom 1 bath beach cottage on the other. By combining the two lots, 6,279 square feet and 6,740 square feet, you end up with an incredible property with just over 13,000 square feet of land. Not to mention being positioned at the lineup of Pipeline and Backdoor.

Welcome to Pipeline, where international surfing events are held each year, culminating with the Vans Triple Crown regarded by many as the Super Bowl of surfing. On any given day, the best of the best are out there facing some of the most daunting, yet magnificent waves on the planet. The famous barrels of Pipeline are the ultimate prize, but don’t be fooled by its beauty since the sheer power can crush the most seasoned surfer.

You will rub shoulders with world famous surfers as well as surf companies including Volcom, Billabong, QuikSilver, RVCA, Reef, Hurley and Vans. During the peak of the surf season from October to February, throngs of people in the thousands, gather to experience the exhilaration of watching surfers take on Mother Nature.

Located on the idyllic North Shore of Oahu, this community is as about a diverse a place as you will find, which is typical of Hawaii. It is a special place with incredible natural resources and unmatched lifestyle, cherished by those who live, work or spend any time in the “country.” There is so much natural beauty here that people come from around the world to experience their share of paradise. Shopping, snorkeling, golfing, biking, local markets, hiking, dining, and deep sea fishing – it’s all here for you.

A crowded and bustling surf scene in the winter months settles into a more serene and peaceful one as summer comes. The beach once crowded with onlookers trying to capture a glimpse of the most popular names in surfing turns into a great spot to relax and spend the day under the sun. The clear blue water is an irresistible invitation to all.  Take a deep breath of the fresh ocean air and gaze out on the horizon where you can spot sea turtles and whales swimming. And end your day in style, relaxing in the front yard taking in another breathtaking North Shore sunset.

'Waikiki Beach in Sunlight' by D. Howard Hitchcock, 1896

Mark Twain first visited Hawaii in 1866 as a reported for the Sacramento Union. When he returned to Hawaii in 1895, he was moved by the sight of Diamond Head as his ship approached Oahu. He wrote:

“On the seventh day out (to sea) we saw a dim vast bulk standing up out of the Pacific and knew that special promontory was Diamond Head, a piece of the world I had not seen before for twenty-nine years.

So we were nearing Honolulu, capital city of the Sandwich Islands – those islands, which to me were paradise, a paradise which I had been longing all those years to see again.

Not any other thing in the world could have stirred me as the sight of that great rock did.”

Two books which tell the story of Twain’s days in Hawaii are: Mark Twain’s Letters from Hawaii and Mark Twain in Hawaii: Roughing It in the Sandwich Islands, Hawaii in the 1860’s.

2016 JP Cinema title-logo

LIST Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to sponsor the 2016 Japanese Cinema Festival at the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre from October 1 – 27, 2016. The festival features everything from nostalgic samurai epics, to contemporary tear-jerkers, to thrilling anime films and insightful documentaries.
Miss Hokusai

The festival opens Oct. 1 with a reception featuring live koto music by Darin Miyashiro, pūpū, and drinks—including sake from iichiko—for purchase. In addition, the local artists Michael Cannon, Kaci Horimoto, Jon J. Murakami, and Tara Tamayori pay homage to Katsushika Hokusai by recreating iconic Hokusai paintings live in their own styles. The works will go on sale upon completion. After the reception the theater presents the Hawai‘i premiere of the animated film Miss Hokusai, which tells the story of O-Ei, who worked in the shadow of her father Hokusai.

The festival takes a nostalgic look at the golden age of Japanese cinema with a selection of samurai classics. One of the most famed actors of his generation Toshiro Mifune takes on the role of the greatest Japanese swordsman in history, Miyamoto Musashi, in The Samurai Trilogy.

This year the French laboratory Éclair digitally restored to stunning 4k Akira Kurosawa’s Shakespearean epic Ran under the supervision of the film’s original distributor StudioCanal, with the film’s director of photography Masaharu Ueda approving the restoration’s color grading.

The museum honors the work of the late renowned anime filmmaker Satoshi Kon by screening three of his career-defining films—Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika.


Two of the series’ films—Sweet Bean, and Our Little Sister—are New York Times Critics’ Picks that offer sometimes heart-warming sometimes heart-wrenching experiences that span multiple generations but are relatable to everyone.

Doris Duke Theatre information: The Doris Duke Theatre opens its doors at 901 Kinau Street (at rear of museum) one half-hour before each film screening.

Film tickets: Available at the theater door on the day of screening, beginning one half-hour before each showing, or online in advance. Visit: https://honolulumuseum.org/15933-japanese_cinema

Film admission: $10 general admission; $8 museum members; free for children 17 and under
