Kaimuki Real Estate - Hawaiian family lifestyle

Kaimuki is a residential area in Honolulu, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. It is in an urbanized region near Kahala and Diamond Head. The area was once an ostrich farm then a carnation farm for funeral flowers.  It is now a residential area with a small district area.  It is one of Honolulu’s oldest neighborhoods.

The name Kaimuki means “the ti root oven” in the Hawaiian language. It was named this because Kaimuki used to be home to many ovens responsible for baking ti roots into a sweet food similar to candy.

Because homes in Kaimuki are in an older neighborhood there is a mixture of older homes and businesses as well as newer trendy shops and restaurants. It has a great atmosphere of what country Hawaiian life is life, but is merely a short drive to the larger city life.

The area has many single family homes that are over 5,000 square feet. Many of these homes are owned by families that go back several generations in this area.  Most of the homes are located closely together on tree lined streets. The business district is located in a different area to save residents from the noise of the busier part of town.

Kaimuki is home to several types of shops and restaurants. There is a diverse collection ranging from older stores that have made it through the years and are now favorites and new chain stores.  There is also the old Rainbow Drive In which has been frequented by multiple generations. The area is also home to several parks that are great for playing any number of sports as well as going on a picnic. There are also seven elementary schools in Kaimuki adding to the great family atmosphere that it already possesses.

Kaimuki is an older neighborhood that gives residents pretty much everything they could ask for in a Hawaiian family lifestyle.  It offers a quiet housing neighborhood with a nearby business district. Locals can enjoy many activities such as hiking to Diamond Head or hanging out in the park. There are also local events that take place often. There are also a diverse range of public and private colleges and elementary schools.  This area offers pretty much everything anyone could hope for in a local community.
