Oahu Neighborhood Tour – Launani Valley

Launani Valley:  The Central Oahu neighborhood you’ve never heard of.

Launani Sign (2)

Located in Central Oahu, just behind Mililani Mauka, is Launani Valley, a peaceful and inspiring neighborhood that was developed in the mid-90’s/early 2000’s.  Longtime Mililani residents describe Launani Valley’s climate as being similar to “Wahiawa Weather”, meaning cool enough in the summer to not need air conditioning, and frosty enough in the winter to require a full complement of blankets and sweatshirts.  It ain’t the arctic circle, but by Oahu standards, it can get COLD (in the mid-50’s).

The Launani Valley Community Association (LVCA) is a master association that is comprised of 833 homeowners in 6 condominium projects.

    Thank You

      Hi Tamara. The short answer is yes, but there are some strings attached.

      Send me an email and I’ll put you in touch with the site manager. chris (at) chrisponsar (dot) com

    How do I get to the bottom of who is in charge of the Launani Valley Association? City and county? Who why is the restrooms at the park never open.

    • Chris Ponsar says:

      Hi Jasmine, the restrooms are maintained by the Launani Valley Community Association (LVCA) and it is purposely kept locked 24/7–keys are available to all 833 owners in the Valley. If you are a tenant, please ask the unit owner for the key.

      If all else fails, feel free to send me an email and I’ll put you in touch with Rolando, the site manager–he can get you a key. My email is: chris (at) chrisponsar (dot) com
