On the windward side of Oahu lies the relaxed, close-knit community of Kailua. Surrounded by the breathtaking Ko‘olau Mountain Range to the west, and glistening sandy beaches to the east, Kailua is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, as well as outdoor activities, and strong sense of community.
With its amazing beaches, gorgeous hikes, and friendly community, Kailua is truly a wonderful place to live, but it doesn't come without a hefty price tag. The median home value is above $1M and the average median listing price is a little under $1.2M, not including luxury real estate in Kailua's sub neighborhood of Lanikai.
People and Lifestyle
Kailua's tranquil, beach town vibe makes it a desired home for local families. It is also a favorite relocation spot for military families as it borders Kaneohe Marine Base, and a popular vacation area for celebrities. Kailua offers a variety of shops, schools, and restaurants along with Farmers’ Markets and community events.
Many of Kailua's nearly 40,000 residents live, work, and play within the neighborhood. If you do work in Honolulu, the scenic commute to “town” on the Pali Highway is only twelve miles. The average drive time to work is thirty minutes. With minimal traffic, it takes twenty five minutes to go to Honolulu.
