Kailua real estate is some of the best on earth, if for no other reason than Kailua is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Situated on Kailua Bay, Kailua is not only a great place to live, but a favorite vacation spot for many and a great place to buy Kailua real estate. Kailua has a small-town feel, with its famed white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Located just 15 miles and 30 minutes from downtown Honolulu, many have said that as they leave Honolulu and enter the Kailua area through the Pali Tunnel, they immediately feel a sense of peacefulness and relaxation. Perhaps, it is the beautiful views, but it also could be the friendly and laid-back people who live in Windward Oahu. Kailua offers the perfect suburban lifestyle, with all the conveniences, to over 51,000 people. MORE ABOUT KAILUA.

Kaneohe is a beautiful, green mountain & waterfront community, which is why many Kaneohe homes for sale have spectacular Kaneohe Bay and/or Ko’olau Mountain Range views. Besides luxury Kaneohe real estate on Kaneohe Bay, there are also some more affordable areas of Kaneohe real estate, and many Kaneohe condos and townhomes. MORE ABOUT KANEOHE.
Hawaii Kai real estate features some of the newest homes and construction in East Oahu. Most Hawaii Kai homes for sale were built in the 1970’s or later. There are many new construction homes in Hawaii Kai, particularly townhomes and condominiums. As with most of Honolulu, Hawaii Kai real estate is some of the most expensive on Oahu.
Though, technically, part of Honolulu, Hawaii Kai is really its own little community, apart from Honolulu. The main feature of Hawaii Kai and a major selling point for some Hawaii Kai real estate is the Hawaii Kai Marina area and a series of lagoons that allow a multitude of options for boat access and waterfront living, both single family and condominium style. Water sports lovers will have a lot of fun in Hawaii Kai, with options for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, waterskiing, paddle boarding, snorkeling and jet-skiing nearby. MORE ABOUT HAWAII KAI.
North Shore real estate is great for those who love to surf! The North Shore is famous for its laid back life-style and international surfing spots and competitions, as well as the community’s strong desire to protect the area from further development. That said, the real estate on the North Shore of Oahu is a bit more rural than many other areas of the island and there is less in the way of commerce. As of now, there is only one major resort on the North Shore, Turtle Bay.MORE ABOUT NORTH SHORE OAHU.
