Sometimes referred to as the "Beverly Hills" of Hawaii, Kahala IS the high end of the neighborhoods on the Island.  Certainly, there are other very high priced neighborhoods on the Island but Kahala is the one that most people associate with our most expensive homes.  For good reason.  Teh large majority of the homes in Kahala are custom homes running form the low 7 figure range to well over 8 figures.  Many famous individuals own property in this neighborhood and in addition to the beautiful homes here you will also find it to be very centrally located for shopping with their own mall, beaches of which there are a number, and a nice golf course if you are fortunate enough to be a memeber.
