Windward Oahu has some of the finest real estate on the island when searching for a home surrounded by Hawaii's natural beauty. The majestic Ko'olau Mountains are set in the background of the windward coast on the east side of Oahu. This part of the island does experience the most rainfall keeping the Ko'olou Range and its surrounding areas lush and green. There are many hiking trails located throughout with varying levels of access and trail maintenance that reward hikers with some of the most amazing views of Oahu. In fact, many blockbuster films and TV shows filmed scenes at Kualoa Ranch and the Ka'a'awa Valley area such as Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbor, 50 First Dates, Hawaii 5-0, and Lost.
Several award-winning beaches are located in Windward Oahu. Kailua Beach Park, Lanikai Beach, and Waimanalo Beach Park have all topped Dr. Beach's "America's Best Beach" list before. You can expect to find spectacular luxury beachfront homes for sale in the neighborhoods surrounding these waters. Many other homes, townhomes, and condos can be found nearby for a fraction of the price of the oceanfront properties.
