Kapahulu Real Estate
Living in Kapahulu
Kapahulu is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Honolulu, Hawaii. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).
The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference.
This might include anything from the housing stock to the types
of households living here to how people get around.
Kapahulu developed rapidly along Kapahulu Ave, it’s main road, once the Ala Wai
Canal, a man-made drainage canal completed in 1920, turned Waikiki’s former
swampland into a buildable tourist destination. Waikiki’s resulting building boom
quickly extended outwards along busy Kapahulu Ave, one of only 4 main traffic
arteries to enter Waikiki.
With Waikiki so nearby, it’s no trouble at all to visit the shops, the beach, the Honolulu
Zoo, or the Waikiki Aquarium. Many of the schools and colleges in town can be
reached from Kapahulu, with ‘Iolani School, Chaminade University, and Kapi’olani
Community College all in the vicinity.
