As one of Hawaii's most popular areas, Hawaii Kai offers one of the most diverse real estate markets on Oahu. With a central location near all that Oahu has to offer and a convenient commute to most of the island's work, it is no small wonder that Hawaii Kai has (and continues to) draw interest from both local residents and off-island investors. Popular neighborhoods include Koko Head, Port Lock, Paiko, West Marina, Mariners Village, Hahaione, Kamehameha Ridge, Kamilo Nui Valley, Keowaakio, Kuliouou Valley and many others.
Bringing his vision to fruition, Henry Kaiser, Hawaii Kai's initial developer, saw the land that is now one of Hawaii's most sought-after areas as a brilliant opportunity to develop an area for local residents that embraces the Hawaii lifestyle while being away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. Established on Oahu's southernmost coast on the east side of the island and extending northward, Hawaii Kai is an apex of not only Hawaiian culture and lifestyle, but also of some of the finest luxury real estate Oahu has to offer. Today the area proudly hosts over 10,000 homes divided among the areas several subdivisions, each offering their own unique taste of Oahu while maintaining a core Hawaiiana value.
In term of a qualitative look at Hawaii Kai, the waterfront stands out as a defining factor of what sets this area apart from the rest of the state. While many Hawaiian communities contain elements of the great pacific, Hawaii Kai has incorporated it and made it into a dynamic element of everyday life for its residents. With a marina spanning an expansive 500 acres and surrounded by restaurants, shopping and some of the areas schools, it is not uncommon for residents to use boats as a mode of transportation to dining, daily shopping necessities and overall convenience in navigating the area.
Beyond the marina and waterfront businesses, there is an array of other electrifying attractions in the area, such as the silky sand beach and popular destination of body surfing enthusiasts, Sandy Beach Park. World class snorkeling opportunities can be discovered in Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, as well as kayaking, boating, and many other water sports in Maunalua Bay Beach Park. Further inland there is an array of parks to be enjoyed, as well as several hiking trails branching out from the community, many of which offer spectacular, unobstructed views of the island and ocean. Additionally, for those with canine companions the Hawaii Kai Dog Park presents itself as a phenomenal destination for pets and owners alike.
The lifestyle of Hawaii Kai draws people from all walks of life, whether at the earlier stages of the life cycle or the more mature end.
