Mariner’s Ridge perches high above southeast Oahu, with commanding views across green valleys, Koko Head Crater and the ocean. This upper-middle-class neighborhood is a favorite with Hawaii families as well as newcomers to the Islands, who love its sunny, dry climate and cooling tradewinds. Mariner’s Ridge also offers the perfect lifestyle for anyone who treasures both proximity to the city and the serenity of an almost-country location.
As part of Hawaii Kai, an upscale East Honolulu suburb spread across several valleys and ridges and bustling with shopping centers, a marina and outdoor activities, Mariner’s Ridge residents live in a mostly self-sufficient community. Many are professionals who commute every morning into urban Honolulu, only a half-hour away, then come home to kayak, surf, horseback ride, hike, golf or shop before dinner.
Mariner’s Ridge is one of Hawaii Kai’s most tranquil subdivisions, with nearly 430 homes winding up the hillside. Developed in the 1970s and 1980s, more than half of the neighborhood features two-story designs based on seven original floor plans. Along the upper regions of the ridge, homes feature custom designs. Many Mariner’s Ridge homes have been remodeled to reflect contemporary trends.
