Hawaii Kai is an exclusive, suburban neighborhood located approximately 12 miles from downtown Honolulu. Hawaii Kai is bordered on its western edge by Kuliʻouʻou with Koko Head to its east. The community is on Oahu’s most southeastern tip, with Maunalua Bay on it southern edge and the Koʻolau Mountains to its north. Hawaii Kai real estate is expensive and highly desirable.
Hawaii Kai was at one time a fishpond. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, planning and development began for creating a residential community that included a marina. This created an amazing private boating community, with many homes having their own docks along the marina. Eventually, development spread and much of Hawaii Kai extends out and away from the marina area.
Hawaii Kai is close to some of the most scenic sightseeing spots on Oahu, including the Mariner’s Ridge majestic walking trail, Sandy Beach, Sacred Makapuʻu and Sea Life Park. One of the highlights of the area is the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve Park, a spectacular place for snorkeling, with some of the most spectacular fish you can spot in the waters of Oahu.
There is ample shopping, dining and entertainment within the neighborhood of Hawaii Kai. The Hawaii Kai Towne Center is home to a Costco, a Longs Drugstore, a Safeway grocery store, Island Divers, and a number of other stores and restaurants, including the well-known Roy’s. At Koko Marina there is a movie theater, a number of small boutiques, more than a dozen restaurants and water sports activities.
Hawaii Kai is home to three elementary schools (Hahaʻione Elementary, Kamiloiki Elementary, and Koko Head Elementary Schools), one middle school which students are zoned for but is not actually in Hawaii Kai (Niu Valley Middle), and one high school (Henry J. Kaiser High). The schools are highly rated for Oahu and are indicative of the high cost of real estate in Hawaii Kai.
Hawaii Kai offers its residents high-end homes, seclusion, great schools and superb amenities. The marina is a big draw for home buyers looking to enjoy a boating lifestyle. Hawaii Kai real estate remains desirable and competitive in a very exclusive marketplace.
