Lana’i — an island so stunning that after the billionaire founder of Oracle visited there, he realized he loved it so much that he decided to buy it.

Oahu is famous for its big waves, silky, white-sand beaches, epic hiking trails and colorful sunsets, but it’s also celebrated for its culinary specialities and cutting-edge chefs. Better yet, many of their delicacies can be found across the island in food trucks, which are sure to “broke da mouth”. There are dozens of food trucks scattered across Hawai’i’s most populous island, but some stand out among the rest. These are our five favorite food trucks:

Another year is on the books and one of our favorite properties, Honua Kai, had an outstanding year.  The introduction of Luana Garden Villas to the market has been met with much anticipation and absorption has been phenomenal - with one more phase being released momentarily to be met with high demand. The construction at the Westin had stalled sales along the outside southern perimeter of Hokulani, yet with its completion now that side of the tower is among the most desired outside perimeter units - with an impeccable resort setting next door and now established view corridors, it's easy to see why there is such high interest.

To start a deeper, let's look at each micro-market.
