About Manoa
See our video of homes in Manoa.

About Manoa
Manoa, meaning wide or vast, is a quiet, charming green valley neighborhood of approximately 1,000 homes bordered by Makiki to the west and St. Louis Heights to the east. Misty rainbows often umbrella the valley in the wake of the cooling rains that fall here, just 2 miles to the sunny beaches of Waikiki.

A sense of tranquility best describes the feeling surrounding real estate in Manoa, with residents taking great pride in their close-knit community. Besides the University of Hawaii with its approximately 20,000 students, Manoa boasts a number of well respected private schools including Mid Pacific, St. Francis, nearby Punahou, as well as highly rated public schools.

It's no surprise the quality and desirability of the schools have a noticeable affect on Manoa real estate values. Manoa homes for sale are typically valued in the $800K to $2.5M range on lot sizes between 5,000 to 15,000 sq ft.
