About Nuuanu

Located just minutes from downtown, Nuuanu is rich in history and natural beauty. With streets surrounded by trees and flora, living in Nuuanu feels like living in a mountain rainforest. The Nuuanu Stream and other smaller streams run through various parts of the neighborhood, creating an even more organic feel to the neighborhood and its properties. The land that is now Nuuanu was once covered by taro fields and irrigation ditches. Later, the area became home to the Queen Emma Summer Palace, which was built in the 1800s when King Kamehameha III and his wife Queen Emma decided to build a place to escape from the summer heat. The Oahu Country Club, which is over 100-years-old, is another historic landmark located in Nuuanu. This highly-respected club boasts a beautiful golf course offering views of Koolaus, downtown and the ocean. The club, which hosts a variety of social events throughout the year, also features an extensive fitness center, a pool and fine dining restaurants. Other places of interest in Nuuanu include the Pali L ookout and the Foster Botanical Garden, both of which offer additional opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the area
