1SG Kucic Reports on Mililani Hawaii: Two Separate Locations

The city of Mililani, Hawaii consists of 2 separate locations that are referred to as “Mililani Town” and “Mililani Mauka“.

Mililani Town mostly consists of older homes that were built starting in the early to mid 1960’s.  Mililani Town is located west of the H-2 highway.  In Mililani Town, you can find single family homes of a variety of sizes and some with with generous lot sizes, townhouses and condominiums. 

Mililani Mauka which is east of the H-2 highway has newer homes that were built starting in the early 1990’s.  The word “Mauka” means “toward the mountain”.  Mililani Mauka is built on the side of the mountain heading up towards the top.  The earliest phases of construction started at the bottom of the mountain and the last phase ended up much higher.

Military personnel that are relocating to Hawaii love Mililani Mauka and Mililani Town because it is very close to Schofield Barracks (Tropic Lightning), Wheeler Army Airfield and Kunia Tunnel (approximately a 10-15 minute drive).  It is also very conveniently located close to Hickam Air Force Base, Pearl Harbor, Tripler Army Medical Center and Camp Smith.  The drive to the latter bases is a little longer at 20-30 minutes.
