Coastal Views & Cooler Temperatures
Makakilo is also located in the southwestern corner of Oahu, just across the highway and up the hill from Kapolei. Development in Makakilo started in the 1960s with Lower Makakilo. As time went on, development continued up the hill with the addition of West Hills, Highlands, and Royal Ridge in the 90s.
Since the early 2000s notable communities of Starsedge, Kumulani, Highpointe, Wai Kaloi, and Kahiwelo have been added. Like the Ewa region, Makakilo residents are a mix of many cultures as the newer construction and lower prices attract local families as well as military families and retirees from all over the world. Residential properties are mostly single-family homes and townhomes. Many of the properties provide sweeping views of the southern coast from Barber’s Point to Diamond Head. Commercial properties are extremely limited in the Makakilo region.
