Niu Valley | A neighborhood overview.

Niu Valley is a lovely, tranquil valley area of around 400 houses that is home to a number of local celebrities. Niu Valley is bounded to the west by Hawaii Loa Ridge and to the east by the tiny valley of Kuliouou.



Niu Valley is a welcoming valley area of around 400 residences, with properties on the left and right sides raised. Niu Valley houses, which were built in the 1950s, are mostly modest and sit on large lots. Homes in this area seldom become available on the open market, and when they do, they sell quickly.


The area is nestled between Aina Haina and Kuli’ou’ou in a narrow valley. It’s near to the beach and just a few blocks from Maunalua Bay. In the neighborhood, there is a tiny commercial area with a 7-11, a Jack-in-the-Box, a handful of Japanese eateries, and even a church. Furthermore, Niu Valley is just a few minutes’ drive from Kahala Mall. This neighborhood is popular not just because it is handy, but also because the lots are large, the landscaping is mature, and the mood is laid-back.


The majority of the residences in Niu Valley were constructed in the 1970s. Niu Valley’s position has improved as new settlements have popped up in the surrounding region. It’s close to Diamond Head, Kahala, and Hawaii Kai, and it’s just a 25-minute drive to downtown Honolulu. The majority of the real estate in Niu Valley was originally established on agricultural land as a gift from King Kamehameha I to the commander of his fleet.


The area has some of the greatest schools for purchasers starting out with a growing family, from Aina Haina Elementary through Niu Valley Middle School and Kaiser High School. Kaiser High School participates in the International Baccalaureate curriculum, which is similar to the program offered in private schools such as Mid Pacific Institute. Niu Valley is also a feeder school for the international baccalaureate middle years program. If you choose to send your children to private schools, there are numerous highly ranked ones in the region, including pre-schools like Calvary by the Sea Montessori School, Holy Nativity School, and La Pietra school in Diamond Head, to mention a few. The neighborhood location also allows for a fast commute to private schools in the Honolulu urban region.


There are choices for seaside living for less than $3 million or between $3 and $4 million, albeit it may need hiring a contractor to undertake some remodeling or renovation work to enhance the property. When compared to other seaside properties in more well-known luxury communities like Kahala, this one may cost between $8 and $10 million. Lanikai and Kailua may cost as little as $6.6 million and as high as $15 to $20 million, depending on the property. At the time of writing, there are nine properties for sale in the Niu Beach area, with at least one new listing for a gorgeous luxury villa under $3 million going on the market in the next few days.
