Hawaii Relocation

Hawaii is the youngest state in the United States.  It joined the union in 1959.  It is the only state to be made up primarily of islands.  The Hawaiian Islands because of their location are a vibrant mix of North American, Asian, and native cultures.  It comprises most of the Hawaiian volcanic chain that consists of hundreds of islands that are spread out thousands of miles.  The main eight islands, however, are Hawaii or The Big Island, Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kohoolawe, and Maui.

Each island has its own majestic history that has turned them into what they are today.  Many of the islands were once settled by Hawaiian royalty.  Several of them were named after the sons of Hawaiiloa, who discovered the islands.  Many if not all of the islands were home to flourishing sugar, taro, or coffee plantations.  Each provides its own beautiful sceneries as well as indulging in living in paradise.

Kauai is the oldest of the islands and is also located the most North.  It has plenty of agriculture wonders, and some of the area is not allowed to be inhabited to protect the natural beauty of the island.  Its most popular tourist destinations are the resorts of Poipu and Kapa’a.  Many people who choose to find permanent residency on this island do so because of the many remote areas as well as the beautiful views.

Oahu is home to Honolulu, the state’s capitol.  It is also the prime island tourists choose to visit.  Much of the windward side is devoted to tourism. However, other parts of the island including the North Shore, which does get its own notoriety of travellers due to excellent surfing, has more of a country way of life.  Homes on Oahu are around the most expensive in the state.

Molokai is different from many of the other islands.  It is almost entirely inhabited by Native Hawaiians and has held on to its rich history. It is a great place to come to for an outdoor adventure or just to feel the calming of a simpler way of life.

Lanai is the sixth largest of the islands and is home to plentiful pineapple plantations. There is only one small town on the island, Lanai City.  It is not called “The Most Secluded Island” for just any reason.  Many people come to this island particular for romantic getaways. 

Maui is the second largest island.  It has more spectacular beaches than probably any of the other islands.  It has the third largest population out of all the islands. Although it is a densely populated area there are still many small residential areas that overlook the best oceans and enjoy a more laid back way of life.

The Big Island or Hawaii is the largest out of the islands.  It is the second most populated just behind Oahu, but is also the least densely populated island. It is possible to experience almost every climate at some point on the island. This island is so large it offers just about everything:  resorts, golf courses, numerous historic sites, and many places for residents to find a home.

Niihau is the seventh largest of the islands. It is the home of an endangered bird species. The island is actually privately owned and is generally off limits to everyone but relatives.  This gave the island its nickname “The Forbidden Isle”.

The last of the eight islands is Kahoolawe. It is also the smallest.  This island has always been sparsely populated due to the lack of fresh water. The island probably only averages 65 inches of rain a year because of its elevation and location to the trade winds. Today the island is only used for Native Hawaiian spiritual, cultural, and subsistence purposes.

Makakilo Real Estate - beautiful scenery of the mountainside and beaches

Makakilo is a residential area in the Ewa District on the island of Oahu. In the Hawaiian language, maka kilo means “observing eyes”. It is located at the south end of the Wai’anae mountain range above the city Kapolei. 

The area sits at a higher elevation than other parts of the island so it gets to experience a cooler and breezier environment than areas that sit lower down.  Many people that live here have homes that sit farther off from the ocean but still have spectacular views of the Pacific. 

There are 13,158 people who live in Makakilo, making it the eighteenth largest community in Hawaii. New Makakilo real estate is being added to serve the ever growing population. The area has been building since 1959.  There are a variety of single-family homes, condos, and townhouses available with a mixture of older and newer ones to choose from.

The Fairways are built along the perimeter of the golf course. These units are offered in various sizes and overlook the golf course.  These are reasonably priced. Also towards the same end of the resort are the Hillside Villas. They provide a relaxed and great way of life. 

The last area of the resort is The Beach Villas at Ko Olina. They are located on the second of Ko Olina’s four signature lagoons. Models range from 1,100 to 1,500 square feet and come in 2 and 3 bedrooms.

Not to mention each community comes with additional bonuses such as pools, shops, and ways to relax and enjoy paradise. Ka Olina is the way Hawaii should be enjoyed.

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.
