Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, could be heading to Hawaii to enjoy their retirement free from the stresses of modern life on the mainland. The couple has been building a massive estate that sits on three acres in Waimanalo, Oahu. The property cost the Obamas $8.7 million in 2015.

Landscaping crews have started to put the finishing touches on the new home. It should be move-in ready summer. The former president recently paid a visit to check out the progress.

The original house was featured in an episode of “Magnum P.I.” That home was razed as part of Barack Obama’s project. Now, the site will be historical as the home of an ex-president.

The construction has not proceeded without controversy. TMZ reports that environmentalists have accused Barack Obama of using a loophole in the law to keep a seawall on the property. The walls have been corroding the coastline, according to their complaints.

Barack and Michelle Obama also own another huge estate. Their Martha’s Vineyard home went for $11.75 million. The family purchased that home in 2009. The Hawaii property is just another addition to a growing real estate collection for President Obama.
