Living in Mililani: A Guide

Mililani, located in central Oahu, was one of Hawaii’s first planned communities, with homes rising from the former plantation fields starting in the 1960s. The initial developer, Castle & Cooke, envisioned a new suburban neighborhood on Oahu to meet the island’s extensive housing needs. Today, Mililani is a desirable family-friendly community with a mix of newer and older homes for all types of homebuyers.

Mililani also has approximately 70+ distinct micro-neighborhoods, offering an abundance of housing options for all types of homebuyers.
