Living in Hawaii Kai

Ocean lovers take solace in Hawaii Kai, an affluent marina community ranging from gated beachfront properties to high-rises further inland. Widely regarded as one of Oahu’s most luxurious suburbs, Hawaii Kai stretches over the island’s southeastern edge, encompassing famed natural wonders Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Koko Crater, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, Halona Blowhole, and Makapu’u Point Lighthouse. With a diverse array of residences from which to choose, Hawaii Kai is a beloved community fitting for older professionals, families, and retirees looking to live out their golden years in paradise.

Aquatic adventures are at the heart of Hawaii Kai, where marina and ocean conditions vary depending on where you are in the area. The marina’s still and serene waters are ideal for watersports like windsurfing, boating, jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding, kitesurfing and parasailing. Neighboring Hanauma Bay is a snorkeler’s paradise, and famed Sandy Beach is a world-famous destination for surfers on the hunt for big waves.  

Amidst this coastal community, you’ll also find Hawaii Kai Towne Center and Koko Marina Shopping Center, the area’s two retail pillars featuring a varied collection of local vendors. Hawaii Kai also benefits from national chains including Oahu’s flagship Costco to a recently renovated Safeway. Dining experiences are equally diverse, and feature famed Roy’s Hawaii Kai, Kona Brewing Company, Moena Café, Maile’s Thai Bistro, and Assaggio Hawaii Kai.

Amenities are truly abundant in Hawaii Kai, and include various medical centers, an excellent school system and community gyms. From its plethora of natural wonders to ample retail offerings, Hawaii Kai is an idyllic luxury neighborhood for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. Due to its distance from town, Hawaii Kai is only accessible via Kalanianaole Highway, keeping it the quiet neighborhood for which it’s adored. People looking for a shorter commute should consider the drive to and from Metro Oahu when looking to buy in Hawaii Kai. Lovers of luxury, however, are more often than not willing to make such a compromise. 

Real Estate of Hawaii Kai

While the marina may dominate the topic of Hawaii Kai real estate, it’s certainly not the only option. Portlock is one of the more affluent sub-neighborhoods, made up of stately homes and mansions lining Maunalua Bay. There’re also the ocean view communities of Mariners Ridge, Napali Haweo and Kalama Valley, where you can find properties ranging from single-family homes to larger apartment complexes. Although many of the Hawaii Kai residences are older and well maintained, there are a number of properties that were constructed between the 1970s to today. What’s common among both older and newer residences is their undeniable skew toward luxury.
