Sometimes when you think of real estate on Oahu, you may think....Honolulu, big city, traffic, high rise buildings galore, etc. (Or maybe you're thinking grass huts and splitting open coconuts for breakfast. By the way, if this is you, then you REALLY need to visit Oahu!) But there is a special place that is sometimes overlooked by many people when thinking about real estate ....Kaneohe!
Its close proximity to the H-3, the Likelike highway, and the Pali highway make it super convenient for anyone to commute into town, the west side, Pearl Harbor or the east side. And the best part about Kaneohe real estate is that you can get away from it all, have a home that has amazing views of the jagged peaks of the Ko'Olau mountains, even ocean views, be close to some of the most beautiful beaches on earth, and at the same time get that "country" feel right here on Oahu. Kaneohe real estate is vast and varied as well. You can find condominiums, town homes and single family residences.
The Marine Corps Base Hawaii, formerly Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay and originally Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay, is a U.S. Marine Corps facility and air station located on the Mokapu Peninsula of Kaneohe, is also here. Many military familes find their homes here for this reason and this adds to the family friendliness of this area.
Geographically, Kaneohe is only 7 miles northeast of Honolulu on the windward side of the island (this is where our weather systems usually meet our island first, hence the name windward.) The population of Kaneohe is approximately 35,000 people.
There is a lot to do in Kaneohe. There are a few nice malls to shop in, (Windward Mall and Kaneohe Bay Shopping Center are the 2 main ones.) the Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens, the Byodo-In temple, many golf courses, many restaurants and its not far from attractions in town like the Honolulu Zoo, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Bishop Museum and beaches in Waikiki.
Kaneohe has every stage of lifestyle to offer as well. There are starter condo's , luxury condo's, townhouses and single family residences. There are also many retirement communities and nursing homes.
Many people who were born and raised here say "I've lived in Kaneohe my entire life. I went to elementary, Jr. high and high school here, and this is the BEST place to grow up and I am so happy to call Kaneohe my home!"
Maybe you're ready to call Kaneohe YOUR home?
