Do You Want to Live in Makakilo? Three Options to Compare

In Hawaiian, Maka kilo means “observing eyes”. Isn’t that the perfect name for this area? Beautiful ocean views abound in this community, nestled into the southern end of the Wai’anae mountain range. Minutes from the resort beaches of Ko’olina and local surf favorites, like White Plains, this neighborhood is perfect for anyone – whether you just need to bury your toes in the sand and get lost in your new paperback or if you’ve got to shake off a hard work week with a Hawaiian rollercoaster ride.


Conveniently located on the hillside above growing Kapolei, Makakilo is close to shopping and entertainment destinations. Thoughtful city planning has resulted in a beautiful downtown in Oahu’s “Second City”, and homebuyers are taking note.

There’s no need to travel around the island to find your favorite stores – Costco, Pier One, Home Depot, Target, Down to Earth, and T.J. Maxx are right here! Several downtown restaurants, such as Assaggio’s and Aloha Salads have now opened satellite locations in Kapolei. Even resort favorites like Monkeypod Kitchen and Kua ‘Aina burgers are nearby.

Trade winds on the hillsides and average temperatures in the 80s make Makakilo a retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Imagine unwinding on your lanai with a refreshing lemonade after a hard day. As a soft breeze rustles the leaves of the plumeria tree in your yard and the fragrant scent of the perfect pink flowers wafts past you, you nod to friendly neighbors taking an evening walk. You’re living the life!
