Known for its pricey properties, expansive homes, and ornate decorations, Kahala is Oahu’s most exclusive, luxurious, and sought-after community. Residents and owners are a mix of old-timers living in older homes and newer generations in larger, mansion-like residences. Whatever the case, Kahala is home to some of Hawaii’s richest and famous people as well as celebrities and other wealthy homeowners who use Kahala as their vacation destination. Alongside the neighborhoods of Kaimuki and Waialae, many of Kahala’s properties are beachfront on the most expensive real estate in the state. Residents of Kahala real estate homes or condominiums for sale enjoy the elite status of their neighbors, safe surroundings, uncrowded streets, and proximity to essential resources.
The Kahala beach is one of Oahu’s hidden secrets. There aren’t many days where the beach has more than a few groups of people occupying the beach’s white, sandy shores. Because the beaches are relatively secluded and are rarely crowded, Kahala residents enjoy the exclusivity of the beach and surrounding areas. Additionally, Kahala is one of the only areas of Honolulu to be fairly flat, and yet also be within 5 – 15 minutes' drive of Waikiki or downtown, another advantage of the area. Nearby attractions include the upscale Kahala Resort and Hotel, Kahala Mall, and Diamond Head Crater.
