Affordable homes for a steal - Those looking for rent to own homes on Oahu on the cheap have come to the right place. In 2012, the median house price in Makakilo was $441,480, which was slightly below the state average of $496,600. This means you'll have more money in your pocket to spend on some new outdoor gear!
Food for every palate - Despite the contrary, residents of Makakilo don't have luaus every night. Instead they hit up restaurants in their neighborhood like the rest of us. Some of their favorites include the Hawaiian-centric Plantation Tavern (recommended are the spam fries and poke nachos), the Laotian haunt Thai Lao, Japanese noodle joint Daiichi Ramen, and ONO Steak and Shrimp for fancier dinner dates.
Access to waters of all kind - If you're looking to have property that is accessible to the ocean, look no further than Makakilo. Beaches like Waimea Bay and Pupukea are about a mile from the heart of town, so catching some waves and rays is an easy feat to accomplish. If you're looking for an activity more kid-friendly, Wet 'N Wild Hawaii is the state's only water park with over 25 rides and attractions.
Bike-friendly - Since the town is so close to Wai'anae Mountains, riding around the slopes is one of the best activities for Makakilo residents. If you're looking to get competitive with your peers, Camp Timberline hosts a variety of downhill racing competitions, including Tiki Man Downhill, all year. Time to put on your game face.
Close to necessary amenities - Since the area is only about 3.8 square miles, Makakilo is a relatively small neighborhood. Having said that, having access to the Interstate H-1 freeway and Farrington Highway makes it extremely easy to get everything you need. From the roads, residents can get to any of Honolulu County's 195 grocery stores, nine super centers, 267 convenience stores, and 734 restaurants if time is reserved to get errands done.
