Moanalua is a neighborhood within Honolulu, Hawaii.
Moanalua is good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamor - although that is not the case near Interstate H-201 or Lunalilo Freeway. Parks are spread out sporadically, making them occasionally difficult to get to from most locations within the neighborhood. Still, there are a few green spaces close by for residents to visit, like Moanalua Community Park.
In Moanalua, most of the dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest of the houses are mainly large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings. This neighborhood also has quite a good variety of unit sizes - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The proportions of home owners and renters are about even. A majority of the housing growth in this part of Honolulu occurred between 1960 and 1980.
Residents will appreciate the proximity to both primary and secondary schools, which are within walking distance from most houses for sale in Moanalua. In addition to public schools, there are private elementary and high schools. With respect to eating, some house buyers in Moanalua may be able to access the closest supermarket on foot, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation.
