Many homes in these luxury hillside neighborhoods are situated at high elevations of approximately 800+ feet above sea level, which captures beautiful panoramic ocean views and the cool island tradewinds. Several popular hiking trails are located at the top of these ridge communities. Residents also enjoy the convenient location – short drive to shopping centers, fine dining, beaches, parks, churches, schools, Waialae Country Club, and freeway access; 15 minutes to Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.

Waialae Nui Ridge
Comprised of over 1,800 homes, this upscale hillside neighborhood overlooking Kahala offers beautiful ocean and coastline views toward Diamond Head and Waikiki. Waialae Pinnacle, a small gated community of 5 homes developed in the late 1980’s, sits at the top of the ridge at about 1,300 feet above sea level. Residents of Waialae Pinnacle have access to a private recreation center with two swimming pools, clubhouse and playground, and enjoy added privacy due to the preservation land that surrounds a portion of the community.

Waialae Iki Ridge
Waialae Iki, just east of Waialae Nui, is a hilltop community created in the 1960s overlooking Oahu’s southeastern coastline, Waialae Golf Course and Diamond Head. This neighborhood has over 1,200 homes, and a gated area at the top of the ridge called Waialae Iki 5 featuring a guarded security gate, four tennis courts with an on-site tennis pro, and entertainment center.

Kahala Kua
Kahala Kua is the next ridge neighborhood to the east of Waialae Iki, and is a newer gated luxury development located above Wailupe and Aina Haina. The approximately 130 homes capture ocean and coastline views spanning from Diamond Head to Koko Head.
