Manoa is a residential area in the county of Honolulu on the island of Oahu.  It is three miles inland and east of Honolulu and around one mile from Waikiki.  The neighborhood consists of an entire valley running from Manoa Falls to King Street.  Rain is an almost daily occurrence in the area and contributes to the lush area. The valley walls are typically dryer.

Many of the homes were built in the 1960s. There are also condominiums available as well as faculty and student residences because The University of Hawaii at Manoa is located in the area.  Recent housing development has been happening on the Diamond Head side of the valley.  Most homes are surrounded with huge trees and great views of the mountains.  Many of the older homes were built with appealing architecture, but there are still several homes that need modern renovations. People who buy a home in this area to renovate can turn a nice profit.

The Manoa Marketplace is home to a farmer’s market several days of the week. There are also several coffee shops residents can visit. The area is home to one of the best public elementary schools in the area with high national test averages.

Manoa real estate probably has the visual that most people have in mind when they think of Hawaii. There is lush greenery everywhere the eye can see. This area gets over 200 inches of rain a year, and the area is what people who have lived in Hawaii grow to love about the islands.  The beautiful mountainside and lush green valley has more beauty than the areas around the ocean for many people.

Many people who work in downtown Honolulu choose to live in Manoa. Most love the New England style homes, the average 85 degree weather with 70 percent humidity, and of course the extensive greenery and mature trees. Manoa offers people a calm and relaxed way of life.  It is away from the tourist areas in Oahu, but is still in close enough proximity that residents can enjoy the busier side of life whenever they choose.
