Omao Homes For Sale

Omao lies just east of Lawai and west of the community of Lihue. The name of the town translates to the word “Green” in Hawaiian. Like many in the region, the area serves primarily as a residential community home to professionals working in other more developed areas of the island. Centrally located, the town is a short drive from both the eastern and southern shores of Kauai. The district is a smaller community compared to Lawai or Kalaheo, with slightly fewer highlands compared to its neighbors. It is 5 minutes from the town of Koloa and the many beautiful beaches to the south. The region of Omao is very rural, green, and filled with ranch land that has been parcelled up for residential properties.

Real Estate in Omao is primarily single-family homes with classic ranch-style architecture and traditional suburban designs. There are a few subdivisions in the community, but most of these are relatively small, with only a handful of homes in each area. Property developments tend to start from larger ranches being subdivided into smaller home lots that are then sold and built with houses that range in home builds and models. Most homes are on a cesspool or have been upgraded to septic.

What's To Love

Omao is a beautiful rural community with vast greeneries dotting its landscapes. When you drive through the area, you'll love the many forested areas, mature tree-lined streets, and open green spaces throughout town. The region is also quite humid, with winds crashing into the valley as they crest over the mountain ranges and spill out into the neighboring communities of Koloa and Poipu.

What's Not To Love

Omao is relatively underdeveloped compared to other towns in Kauai, retaining a mostly rural community setting with very little in terms of tourism infrastructure. You'll find very few visitor accommodations, no retail establishments, and no new residential developments in the area. The town is also landlocked with no beachfront areas along its borders.
