Hawaii Kai Area – 21 Neighborhoods
The Hawaii Kai Homes and Condos Area in East Oahu is located primarily within zip code 96825 and encompasses 21 beautiful neighborhoods. Each one has its own individual beauty and charm. From the luxury neighborhoods of Portlock and Napali Haweo to condos on the Marina in West Marina, Hawaii Kai has a lot offer with a wide variety of properties to choose from. Another benefit of choosing the Hawaii Kai Area to live is the public school system which has recently implemented the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. More information about this new school program can be found here: IB Program.
The focal point of Hawaii Kai centers around the ancient Maunalua (two mountains) fishpond and adjacent wetlands of Kuapa (fishpond wall) which started to be dredged circa 1959 to finally become the well known Koko Marina of today. In 1961 lease agreements were signed with the land owner (Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate) to develop the land around the present day Koko Marina (521 acres / 2.11 km²). Since then both commercial and residential areas have undergone well planned development from Portlock and Koko Kai on the ocean all the way to the surrounding ridges of Kamehame and Napali Haweo.
Commute to Downtown Honolulu within 30 Mins
Hawaii Kai has traditionally been thought of as an area quite distanced from Downtown Honolulu. However, with the addition of contraflow lane morning commutes from most neighborhoods of Hawaii Kai to Downtown can be done in as little as 30 minutes. With plentiful shopping possibilities at the Hawaii Kai Town Center, Koko Marina Center and Hawaii Kai Shopping Center to meet daily needs, the area is an overall convenient place to live. In a (coco)nutshell, Hawaii Kai is a perfect medium between having that tropical island feel and the convenience of modern life.
Market Update for 2021
The Hawaii Kai Condo Market currently has 4 months of inventory as of Q1 2020 and had 11 months of inventory in Q3 2019 – currently a Sellers’ Market but close to neutral. The actual data and a CMA (comparative market analysis) can be requested here. The average price per square foot for all condos sold in Hawaii Kai in the last 12 months is $577/SQF. It’s a good time for both Buyers and Sellers of condos in Hawaii Kai being close to neutral territory. For Sellers it would be good to make yourself stand out (good staging) and for Buyers watch the market and when a unit comes on the market in a building you are interested in, get an offer in quickly.
