Hawaii Loa Ridge is an impressive prestigious area in Oahu. The area was built in the 1980s and is located off of Kalanianaole Highway on Pu’u’ Ikena Drive on a winding road up the hill.
The drive to downtown Honolulu from Hawaii Loa Ridge is only half an hour, but most residents prefer to shop at Kahala Mall that is only five minutes away. It is three stories of shops, restaurants, and a movie theater.
Most residents in this area prefer to send their kids to one of Honolulu’s private schools, but some do attend the public schools in the area. Some of these include Aina Haina Elementary School, Niu Valley Middle School, and Kalani High School.
Hawaii Loa Ridge residents are also not at a loss for recreational activities. Hiking is available further inland that takes about three to four hours. Residents can enjoy some of the more breathtaking sites that Oahu has to offer. There is also a community recreation and fitness facility nearby, which has tennis courts, trails, and a playground for kids.
A person seeking real estate in Hawaii Loa Ridge should be prepared that it is expensive real estate. It does, however, offer much more for the price than many other luxury communities. Most of the more than 500 homes in the gated community will cost well over $4 million. The average price of a 5,000 square foot home here is $3,923,219.
