House of the Day: Honolulu Home Is a Vista Vision

Comparing homes in Hawaii to homes in the rest of the United States is just unfair. Lush tropical surroundings, staggering ocean vistas, views of Diamond Head and Waikiki -- nothing else stands a chance. Case in point, this house.

This $14.8 million home in Honolulu is not only equipped with a staggering view of Diamond Head that most of us will only see on our honeymoons, but its 180-degree views means that you get ocean and mountain views from just about every angle.

No matter where you are in the house -- kitchen, living room, bedroom, even the office -- award-winning architect Jeff Long designed it so that you'll enjoy picturesque panoramas of the sparkling turquoise Pacific and Hawaii's lush, rugged tropical landscape. Our favorite is the view from the bedroom, which opens up to a balcony right over the ocean. I mean, seriously now.

Gorgeous vistas aside, the 8,200-square-foot home features five bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms, a pool and spacious outdoor decks and patios.

Prudential Advantage Realty has the listing.
