Clean air, surf, and sand combined with small town rural living is possible in Hawaii. Wai’anae, Oahu is the place to live your Hawaiian dream affordably. Read about our north shore Oahu long term rentals below:
Wai’anae, Oahu Hawaii is a small community with affordable home prices that makes living the Hawaiian dream reachable for more people. It’s close enough to the state capitol, Honolulu, to take advantage of the big city amenities, yet far enough to reap small town living benefits.
Best known for its boat harbor, Wai’anae is a small rural community on the Leeward side of the island. Boat tours launched from the harbor bring in a fair amount of visitors, but not nearly as much as Honolulu or Waikiki, making this more of a local favorite.
Wai’ane is the main place for local and surrounding communities to shop, eat, and play. The mall has the essentials: a drug store, bank, some fast food establishments, and clothing and grocery stores. The town also has a post office, library, and a total of 13 schools.
A favorite spot on the island is Poka’i Bay Beach Park. The calm swimming waters and playground area make it a great place to take the family for the day. Beginner surfers come to hone their surfing skills before hitting more challenging beaches.
In addition, visitors and locals enjoy the People’s Open Market (a Hawaiian farmer’s market) that visits the beach on rotation. The market features multiple farm vendors with produce and other related products to the customers at affordable prices.
Renting a home in Wai’anae is a great way to get to know more about this overlooked area of Hawaii. The costs associated with moving into a rental are considerably less than that of buying a home, especially if one is moving from the mainland to the island. The expense of shipping personal belongings, along with the documentation fees and travel costs associated with an airplane makes it more difficult to secure sufficient money to purchase a home. By renting long term, it gives the new resident a chance to experience island living and save money.
When making the move from the mainland (or possibly another island) to Oahu, reach out to Ola Properties.
