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.

Not only can locals participate in the many water activities such as swimming, snorkeling, diving, and deep-sea fishing, but they can also enjoy the many sites such as Barber’s Point, Kahe Point Beach Park, Kamokila Park, and Piliokahe Beach Park. There is also a convenient shopping center, the Makakilo Shopping Center.  There are also local restaurants and a movie theater. 

Makakilo sits away from the busy tourist areas, but is still just a short ride away from the leeward side of the island where anyone can experience the more hectic side of Oahu.Here people can sit back and relax with the beautiful scenery of the mountainside and beaches.
