Mariner’s Ridge is a collection of beautiful homes located high up along a ridge in the majestic Koolau Mountain range, which is a prominent landmark that spans across the east half of Oahu. Living on a hilltop offers this neighborhood a sense of private exclusivity and residents can enjoy some truly amazing views. Located east of Hahiaone Valley and west of Kamilo Nui valley, residents and visitors will need to drive through Kaluanui road to access the ridge.
The majority of homes in Mariner’s Ridge were built around the ‘70s and ‘80s, but a quick stroll through the neighborhood shows that many owners have invested in renovating the original structures. The lower homes have a standard selection of simple floor plans, while the homes higher up on the ridge were built later and boast of a more customized and modern design. As of March 2022, the median sales price is $1.9 million with an average of 15 days on the market.
Given that these homes are up high on a ridge, the residents can enjoy sky-high 180-degree views that span across the sparkling Hawaii Kai marina, majestic Koko Head and the pristine ocean. Almost every room in these homes offer spectacular views – it’s clear that the architects made sure to highlight the scenery by incorporating expansive lanais, private pools and jacuzzis.
The interior of the homes feels just as exclusive and sophisticated as the views. Many designers have incorporated stylish contemporary appliances, modern design finishes and additional rooms. Homes are typically two story or split-level with high ceilings, open floor plans and large windows. The luxurious lots range about 6,000 to 9,000 square feet and the houses usually have three or four bedrooms. You’ll find that most of the homes have a covered garage – some owners have even transformed their garage into another bedroom, storage room or entertainment room.
Despite its semi-private location, Mariner’s Ridge is just a few minutes’ drive from shopping centers like Costco, Foodland Farms and Safeway. Residents can easily swing by Koko Marina Center or Hawaii Kai Towne Center, where there’s a plethora of popular restaurants, grocery stores, fitness centers, a movie theatre and local boutiques. There are ample parks and hiking trails within short driving distance and ocean enthusiasts can swing by Hanauma Bay, Sandy Beach or Maunalua Bay Beach Park for watersports like surfing, boating, jet skiing, snorkeling, diving and much more.
If you’re looking for luxurious homes situated on an exclusive hilltop, Mariner’s Ridge might be the place for you.
