Kailua Real Estate

Kailua Homes, Kailua Condos and Kailua Land

Kailua is a charming beachside town located just 15 short miles and a fast commute to downtown Honolulu, with beautiful ocean and mountain views along the route. Originally conceived as a bedroom community, laws in place have prevented the development of resorts and hotels, making this small community a rare find in such close proximity to all the conveniences of Honolulu’s city center. Single-family homes predominate in Kailua, where residents vie for space along the 5-mile stretch of white sand on Kailua Beach. 

Kailua is a popular choice for Oahu real estate buyers looking on the Windward side of Oahu. Properties available for sale in Kailua are predominantly single-family homes. Still, you will also find townhomes, condos, apartments and even new construction in a relatively new, three-story development called Ka Malanai, located next to the heart of Kailua Town center. A Whole Foods Market and a Target anchor the town itself. 

Close to Kailua Town, a series of 1960s-built condos offers townhomes, condos and apartments that are conveniently located to Kailua’s many eateries, boutique shops and conveniences. You won’t find any hotels here (they are prohibited), and there are only a few buildings taller than four storeys in Kailua. These offer apartment living with ocean and mountain views.

Kailua is made up of several smaller communities, but the many oceanfront and beachside streets are the most sought after areas. These include lovely Kailua single-family homes for sale and townhomes along Kailua Beach.  

Lanikai is home to one of Oahu’s most pristine beaches and exclusive neighborhoods. This exclusive enclave is a single loop with charming cross streets located at the southernmost end of Kailua. A cul-de-sac with limited real estate, this oceanfront community backs up against a ridge and is home to many luxury single-family homes, some with beachfront access to Lanikai Beach.
