Insight to Kahala Kua Homes & Neighborhood
Kahala Kua is a newer view ridge that is now almost completely developed with very few vacant buildable lots remaining. The entry gate to Kahala Kua is situated approximately 1 mile up Poola St, a narrow road that starts at Waialae Iki Park on the bottom, and steeply winds up the hill along some older more modest homes.
Residents enjoy spectacular ocean views from modern contemporary homes built on sloped lots with privacy behind a secure gate. Strict design guidelines are established in order to preserve a consistent look for the homes in Kahala Kua and to protect the views. As with most view ridges in Honolulu, the east facing rim properties enjoy dramatic views towards Koko Head and some of the neighbor islands on the horizon, but are also subject to Hawaii’s easterly trade winds, especially at higher elevations.
