Monkeypod Trees at a Manoa property

Manoa, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii.  An older, peaceful, and lush Honolulu neighborhood.

The often rainy college town neighborhood on Oahu, Manoa includes small shops, a strip mall, and a number of public and private schools with proximity to Downtown Honolulu and freeways that connect this sleepier town to the other parts of Oahu.  Over the past few years, Eric T Chu - SC Realty and his fellow realtors at SC Realty have helped investors and dream home owners explore this family-friendly and elegant neighborhood with great architecture.

  • A number of single family homes, low-rise apartment complexes and small businesses at Manoa Marketplace on Woodlawn Drive dot this older 1950s community. Apartment rental units average from $1,000 to $5,000 per month depending on bedrooms/bathrooms/amenities.  Purchase prices for Single Family (SF) homes ranges from $200,000 Studios to $3.5M Fee Simple homes depending on size and location.  Comparable real estate can be found in the adjacent Makiki-Lower Punchbowl, Palolo and Diamond Head-Kapahulu-St. Louis areas.
