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.
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!
