Exclusive, private homes with some of the most dramatic ocean views in Oahu

Welcome to Hawaii Kai/Portlock/Hawaii Loa Ridge

Located at the southeastern tip of Oahu, this region is home to two famous landmarks: Koko Head Crater and Hanauma Bay. 


The real estate market is a mix of gated and non-gated hillside communities with single-family homes. Properties boast panoramic views of the ocean, sunsets, and Diamond Head Crater. Homes are beautifully designed in Mediterranean and contemporary architectural styles. Options include marina-front condominiums and townhomes with private docks and sprawling oceanfront estates. Vacant lots are hard to come by in this area, which is surrounded by water and backed by the high ridges of the Ko’olau Mountain Ridge.
