Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Leilani Estates neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.

that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Leilani Estates is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Leilani Estates neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 96.5% of all American neighborhoods.
