Hawaii Kai Condos for Sale

Located on the eastern side of the island of Oahu, Hawaii Kai is one of the most exclusive residential neighborhoods in Hawaii.  The Hawaii Kai neighborhood itself encompasses the southeastern shoreline of Oahu and the sub-neighborhoods, or communities, of Portlock, Haha`ione and Ka`alakei valleys, Mariners Ridge, Queen’s Gate, and Kalama Valley.

More practically, Hawaii Kai residents love the relatively short 30-minute commute to downtown Honolulu, where most people work.  Outside rush hour, the commute is as little as 15 minutes.  There is a sprawling shopping center that is convenient to all communities, including a Safeway, Costco, Long’s, plentiful restaurants, and many other necessary shopping centers.  Residents are typically upwardly mobile and have high-income, socio-economic backgrounds.

Needless to say, Hawaii Kai is highly prized for buyers seeking a secure, peaceful, convenient, and beautiful place to live on the island of Oahu.  Based on these important factors, Hawaii Kai real estate has a high immovable market value, with values typically rising year after year.

A typical single-family home in Hawaii Kai depends on location; one that hugs the shoreline or is situated high in the valley demands millions of dollars.  Most homes, though, start at around $725,000 for three bedrooms and two bathrooms on an approximately 5,000 square feet lot.

Although largely comprised of single-family homes, there are also many condo developments in Hawaii Kai.  These condo developments include high-rise developments as well as single- and multi-family townhouses situated in close-knit communities.  The advantages of condo living are apparent: potentially more affordable, magnificent views to be had, and unmatched amenities.
