St. Louis Heights Homes Overview
See our video of Saint Louis Heights homes.

St Louis Heights is a steep hillside residential neighborhood of about 600 older Honolulu homes developed as early as 1929, named after St Louis School at the bottom of the hill, which today shares the campus with Chaminade University. St Louis Heights is bordered by Manoa to the west and Palolo to the east. Most St Louis Heights homes for sale are valued between $700K and $1.2M and are often built on steep sloped lots ranging from 4,000 and 10,000 sq ft.

Insight to St. Louis Heights Homes
Homes in St Louis Heights offer spectacular ocean views, and, a noticeable cooler climate towards the top of the hill at about 1,000 ft elevation. Chaminade Terrace, the desirable lower easterly section of St Louis Heights, includes wonderful rim lots along Kaminaka Dr with some of the finest views overlooking Waikiki, Diamond Head and the blue ocean beyond. At the base of the hill sits a 272 unit condo project called Regency Park, which was added in 1981 immediately adjacent to the Chaminade University school campus, just off Waialae Ave.

St. Louis Heights History
It's obvious that this district got its name from St. Louis School, which sits on the lower end of the elevation. Created in 1846 to serve the Catholic community of Hawaiian kingdom, it counts Governor John Burns and the recently sainted Father Damien of Molokai as graduates.

The school moved to its present site from downtown Honolulu in 1928. 204 hillside acres were purchased from Bishop Estate, giving them not only enough for their school, but also to sell of as residential lots. 80 acres were sold on which the first St. Louis Heights homes were built. Streets were named for early members of the order who started the school – Bertram, Eugene, Felix and others.

The Pearl Harbor attack directly affected this community as the school was taken over as a hospital and offices for the military. The government quickly threw up even more buildings on the hillside, making it one of the busiest places on Oahu during World War II. President Roosevelt even visited the hospital at one point.

The end of the war brought a close to the military's presence, but started an acceleration of home building on these streets. Homes on St. Louis Heights were well loved for their stunning views and easy access to both downtown and Waikiki.

Few today would ever guess that this quiet community was once a beehive of activity aimed at winning the war in the Pacific.
