Neighborhood of the Month: Kāneʻohe
(Sponsored) From your neighborhood experts at Locations.
Kāne‘ohe is the quiet laidback neighbor to Kailua. Filled with a rich rural history, this neighborhood offers a genuine community feel and cool trade winds—even on a hot summer afternoon.
Beginning in the 1800s, Hawai‘i’s elite families and ali‘i were attracted to this region at the base of the Ko‘olau Mountains, not only for its beautiful adjacent bay but also for its fertile agricultural lands. Once a prosperous location for sugarcane fields and fish ponds, Kāne‘ohe has transformed from an agricultural community to an urban enclave. Development began in the early 1900s, and after World War II there was a boom in housing until the 1990s. Today there is a range of housing types, from condos to palatial estates, and price points, beginning at $315,000 ranging up to $2.5 million.
