Manoa homes

This neighborhood was the home of the first sugarcane and coffee plantations in Hawaii. Manoa has evolved to become a prestigious area with mature homes that are well cared for.

Manoa is bordered by the Ko'olau mountain range to the north and the H-1 Freeway to the south.  Tantalus is immediately west of Manoa Valley and Saint Louis Heights are to the east.  Manoa is a Hawaiian word that means "vast."  This IS a large valley with thousands of homes and residents.

Manoa's climate is slightly cooler than Honolulu and light rains are a daily occurrence. Views are very nice because of the valley's lush vegetation.

Sorry! No results were found for your search. Your search may be too restrictive - try loosening up your parameters (i.e., don't require items like Waterfront or View). Some property types do not contain all fields (i.e., multi-family homes do not list number of bedrooms).

More Manoa history

After World War II, an affordable rental housing project known as "Manoa Housing" was constructed in the area where Manoa Marketplace and Manoa Library are located now.  The project was federally funded and its purpose was to provide low-cost homes for war veterans.  Families first moved to Manoa Housing in late 1945.

The homes were in a safe neighborhood and the low rents allowed residents to save so that they could buy their own homes later.  One thousand homes were built at the Manoa Housing site and they were occupied until 1958.  In the 1960's the homes were torn down.  Former residents of Manoa Housing periodically hold reunions to talk story about the good old days in Manoa.
