The neighborhood of Kahala in Honolulu, to many local, mainland, and foreign buyers, is an instant recognition of a standard of living often only accessible to the most affluent. Prices range from $1.5 million, to go over $20 million. Every property in the neighborhood is different, and originally designed to the owner’s taste. Some properties still have their old school charm, and original design, while others have been rebuilt from the ground up.
Homes can range anywhere from 1,000-10,000+ sqft with property sizes from 0.15-1.5 acres. There are so many variations of homes, that no matter what a prospective buyer is looking for, that home likely exists in Kahala. Unlike many homes in Honolulu, the homes in Kahala are built on level lots, which is important to some residents and prospective buyers. Many of the Kahala homes have beautiful pools, yards, and even tennis courts.
On first sight, the neighborhood properties amaze with their landscaping, entry gates, and an assortment of home designs. Well-manicured landscaping follows through quaint streets and alleys leading to each property. The neighborhood itself is quiet and inviting, and amazingly so, is close to all the city amenities residents desire. When you live in Kahala, you’re never too far from restaurants, golf, the beach, and the mall.
Waialae Country Club is a short distance from most of the homes in the neighborhood and at the end of Kahala Ave. For golf enthusiasts, being so close to a golf course, without driving through city traffic, is definitely an added benefit of living in Kahala.
The neighborhood itself is centrally located in Honolulu, so no matter where the residents need or want to be at, the distance is never far. Waikiki is only minutes away with an array of many new restaurants to satisfy any craving. Ala Moana Center is also a short drive away, with world-class shopping and additional dining options.
Situated in Honolulu, on the south shores of Oahu, Kahala residents get to enjoy year-round sunshine with just enough rain to keep the vegetation lush and green. Hawaii is already paradise, but being surrounded by tropical plants and beautiful fragrant flowers in your own yard makes the Hawaii Life experience even more so intense and worth the price of owning a home in Honolulu.
But what about the beach, you may be asking? The beach is never far away when living on Oahu. However, one of the other amazing perks of living in Kahala is the proximity to the beach. A number of lucky residents along the famous Kahala Ave enjoy the golden beaches and the soothing sound of the waves from their oceanfront properties. Public access to the beach is also available to residents who do not live oceanfront. There, residents can enjoy a semi-private day at the beach. For those looking at a little more excitement and crowds, the famous golden sand Waikiki Beach is minutes away.
