Why I Love Kaimuki
Kaimuki resonates with me. I remember spending a lot of time in the area with my grandparents. They would take my siblings and me to Toys N Joys. My mom, an amazing sewer, would bring me along to find fabrics at Kaimuki Dry Goods. Believe it or not, the fabric store has been serving customers for over 80 years. And, one of my first jobs as a dishwasher was at a restaurant in Kaimuki.
Kaimuki is so unique. It’s not just this vintage neighborhood. Some of the best new restaurants and boutique shops are now located in Kaimuki. One of the best Hawaii Real Estate Brokerage Firms also has an office on Waialae Avenue. Yes, Hawaii Life has on office in Kaimuki.
