ʻĀhuimanu, a neighborhood in Kāneʻohe, Oahu, is one of the most beautiful places on Oahu. Where trees grow taller than buildings and the grass really is greener. If you can imagine, the Ko’olau Mountain Range feels and looks even more majestic being at the slope of the range.
You’re probably thinking, if it’s so lush and green, it must rain a lot in ʻĀhuimanu. You’re right, but with rain comes rainbows and waterfalls. That’s right, waterfalls are easily seen flowing from the Ko’olau Mountain Range after a night of rain.
What Are the Residents of Ahuimanu Saying About the Neighborhood?
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a few long-time residents of the Āhuimanu neighborhood. The common consensus is, they love the neighborhood. Most are born and raised in the area and can’t imagine a better place to call home.
Did You Know?
Fun Fact, many streets in the ‘Āhuimanu neighborhood are named with birds in mind. For example, the street Hui ʻū.lili is named after the wandering tattler (a slender regular winter migrant to Hawaii).
47-532 ‘Āhuimanu Road, Kāneʻohe Oahu is a single-family home located on 2.8 acres of land. That’s a lot of land! Seriously, the owner and I walked the entire property and it took about 10 minutes to get from one end to the other. This lot is incredibly unique for the neighborhood. Many of the properties in the area were divided into “smaller” lot sizes and zoned residential, but this property along with 7 others on ‘Āhuimanu Road, were zoned as agricultural 2 land thus allowing their large lot size. Not only does its land size make for a uniqueness, there are two entryways to the lot. Don’t get me started on the numerous fruit trees and flowing stream within the property.
I can’t explain the beauty here. ‘Āhuimanu’s abundant culture and history makes it one-of-a-kind. It’s something to experience for yourself.
