West Oahu is known for its drier weather, white sandy beaches and rural atmosphere. In the recent past, Ko'Olina and Kapolei have changed the areas housing dramatically.
Ko'Olina is a master-planned gated community that includes an 18 hole golf course, hotels, condominiums, townhouses and single family homes. A world-class resort and spa, seven beautiful sandy beach coves and a Yacht Harbor are exclusive to Ko'Olina. The prices for golf course frontage homes start around $900,000. A new Beachfrontage condominium has prices at $1,000,000 and up.
Makaha, known for surfing championships, offers pristine beachs. About a 60-minute drive from Honolulu, many of the oceanfront homes are now second homes. Prices for beachfront properties range from $1,500,000 and up.
