Often called the Rodeo Drive or the Beverly Hills of Hawaii, this 1.5 mile strip set along Oahu’s southern shore boasts luxury residences with winding driveways, lush landscaping, and irreplaceable ocean views.

Hawaii’s iconic Diamond Head rises magnificently in the background.  Kahala’s oceanfront estates have summoned celebrities, world class athletes, notable politicians, U.S. Presidents and financial tycoons to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness that is uniquely – Kahala. Jim Nabors, Tom Selleck, Chris Hemmeter, David Geffen, Adnan Khashoggi, Ronald Reagan, Clark Gable, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are among those who have frequented this prominent neighborhood.

Kahala is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the state with property prices in the multi-millions. It is home to the world famous Kahala Hotel and Resort and the exclusive Waialae Country Club, host of the annual Sony Open. Kahala Mall houses a variety of local and international businesses and restaurants, a multiplex movie theater and Wholefoods Market. The Mall also hosts art exhibits and entertainment ranging from hula performances to martial arts demonstrations.

Investors from China, Japan, Korea, Australia and the U.S. Mainland continue to invest in this world renowned neighborhood. While Kahala has solidified its reputation as “the place to live,” there is growing excitement in the revitalization – a renaissance – of this exclusive and prestigious neighborhood.
