Many people get confused when Realtor’s talk about Mariners Valley in Hawaii Kai. They say, “Do you mean Mariners Ridge????” Nope. Im talking about the valley that’s nestled between Mariners Ridge and Kamehame Ridge, Mariners Valley. It goes by a few different names, depending on what area of the valley you’re talking about….Mariners Valley or Kamilo Iki Valley are the 2 that are widely used. They’re based on the legal descriptive names of the area and the subdivisions used in the property tax records for Honolulu County.

There are single family residences and also townhomes in Mariners valley. The valley is in a really great area of Hawaii Kai, right in the middle. But it’s tucked back so that you get a nice suburban and quiet feel here. Koko Head crater looms overhead so most of the residences get a nice view of it, at least from the streets. And in the back (top) of the valley, some homes even get Hawaii Kai town views and some partial ocean/marina/canal views.
At the beginning of the valley there are numerous soccer fields, a skate park, basketball courts and playgrounds. Up from there is Kamilo Iki Elementary School. There is also a park (Kamilo Iki Neighborhood Park) about halfway into the valley with a playground, basketball court and a soccer field space. And if you want to catch the bus, there are a few stops on Lunalilo Home Rd.
Mariners Valley 3 Townhomes
The townhome subdivision is called Mariners Village 3. Prices range from $448K-$607K (in the last year) and they have units with 2-4 bedrooms and range between 850-1356 sq ft. The lower priced one’s may possibly need some renovations, but the reduced price and being in Hawaii Kai are 2 great reasons to check these out! I’ve seen these units after they’ve been fully renovated and they’re awesome! The neighborhood has a pool and clubhouse available to the owners and floorplans are spacious and buildings and grounds have been well planned and maintained.
Kalapaki St single family home in Mariners Valley
There are also many single family homes in the valley that range from $750K-$1,078,000 (in the last year), and land sq ft range between 5,200-13,700 sq ft. If you know your rules of real estate in Hawaii, then you know that the more land you have, the more you’ll pay for the home. It’s a commodity that we, unfortunately, cannot produce any more of on this island, especially on this side as most of the usable land has been developed already.
