Aina Haina is located in Honolulu’s Hawaii Kai neighborhood, which is one of Oahu’s most sought after residential areas.
Aina Haina is a coastal, suburban neighborhood in a residential community developed around Kalanianaole Highway east of Waikīkī and Diamond Head. ʻĀina Haina was named after local dairyman and owner of Hind-Clarke Dairy, Robert Hind. ʻĀina Haina in the Hawaiian language means “Hind’s Land”. A main street is a loop named Hind Drive for him.
The majority of single-family homes and townhomes in Aina Haina are medium sized (three or four bedrooms) to large (four, five, or more bedrooms). The majority of the residential real estate is occupied by the owners. Many of the homes in the Aina Haina neighborhood were built between 1940 and 1969 and are older and well-established. Between 1970 and 1999, a number of houses were also constructed.
The neighborhood of Aina Haina is located on the ocean, a bay, or an inlet. Often, such coastal locations feature waterfront amenities and recreational activities that appeal to both inhabitants and visitors. Aina Haina is a nautical neighborhood that is both coastal and on the sea. It is historic, walkable, densely populated, and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a nautical feel, with a touch of seaside and seafaring, which some residents may find appealing.
Furthermore, while most communities include a range of ages of homes, from new to old, this neighborhood stands out owing to its concentration of residential real estate built during a single time period: 1940 to 1969, which is generally regarded older, well-established residences. This was a prolific period for home construction in the United States. As GIs returned home after WWII, they used the GI Bill to purchase newly built homes on the outskirts of cities and start their families. Many baby boomers grew up in homes built during this period, which roughly corresponds to the ‘Baby Boom’ generation (1945–1964). But what makes the Aina Haina neighborhood so intriguing is that 85.7 percent of the homes were built during this time period. As a result, this area has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very essential slice of Americana, when you walk its streets or drive through it.
Wailupe Beach Park, Laukahi Park, Niu Valley Park, Kawaikui Beach Park, and the Aina Haina Community Park are among the local attractions. The Aina Haina Shopping Center and the neighboring Kahala Mall are also easily accessible to residents. There are two elementary schools in ina Haina (Aina Haina Elementary School and Holy Nativity School).
Solana will do what it takes to sell your home and get you in to the house of your dreams. She went over and beyond to help us sell our townhouse AND helped us buy a beautiful home in Kapolei. Solana makes this whole process easy.
Solana has been a great asset to my home but I g and selling experience. She has integrity, knowledge and experience in this field. We are so grateful to have worked with her.
Working with Solana put all of my first time home buying worries at ease. She is thorough, communicative, honest and an extremely hard worker. She stayed in cadence with me every step of the way. I will definitely work with her again if/when I have the opportunity to invest in other properties.
Solana has been a wonderful help in renting out our home. It was our first time and she guided us through the paperwork and process. When we needed anything fixed she had great recommendations. Overall we are very happy with her and her team.
Solana is a great realtor. She was good at listening to what we wanted and was patient with us as we changed our minds, changed neighborhoods and back again. She was very responsive to all forms of communication; email, text, phone call, etc. We were still on the mainland when we started our home search and she sent listings and visited homes on our behalf before we even arrived back on Oahu. Her level of service, professionalism and integrity were top notch!! This was very important to us as the community in Hawaii is very small and everyone knows everyone.
I worked with Solana for several years while we searched for the perfect home. Solana was so patient throughout the process, always making time for us and keeping us up to date on the market. Once we became serious about purchasing a home, Solana always did her due diligence on identifying properties for us, really going above and beyond to cater to our needs. She helped our offer get accepted on a perfect home and couldn't have been more knowledgeable about the process, always answering all of my questions throughout the entire transaction. I highly recommend working with Solana and look forward to working with her again in the future!
I met Solana while looking to rent an apartment. She actually took the time to help me and was able to find a great loan program that allowed me to BUY! I'm spending less then how much I was willing to spend on a rental. Now that I have been here a year, I have gained equity. Best decision I have ever made! Thank you Solana!
To say that working with Solana was a pleasure would be an understatement. She not only went above and beyond along the process made us feel like we were the most important task for her. This was important to me being a single mom as Solana was determined to find a safe place for my daughter to call home. She bought my daughter a new bed because she knew we were sharing a bed. She also bought us things for the house and I cannot thank her enough for all she has done. Solana will always be my go to agent and now a true friend.
This letter is to express my complete satisfaction and appreciation to Solana Grover. The recent sale of my condo went very smoothly. He went over the contract with me until I was completely satisfied. I was so stressed moving out of the county and she did EVERYTHING. She even paid for my place to be painted, as she knew I was going through a hard time. I'm forever thankful, Solana you did it!
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Solana Grover during both the purchase and sale of my home here in Hawaii. As a Physician, I appreciate the value of hard work and dedication, and can attest that she will surpass your expectations. She is detail oriented, accommodating, trustworthy, and has years of experience behind her. If you are buying or selling your property, you want Solana on your side!
