City Guide for Makakilo, HI

Good luck hiding in Makakilo! In Hawaiian, maka kilo means "watching eyes."

Just over 18,000 residents call Makakilo home. This charming suburban community in the Ewa District of Oahu is perched on the southern end of the slopes of the Wai_anae mountain range. Below it lies the metropolitan city of Kapolei. Makakilo is separated from the city by the H-1 freeway, serving as a conduit to Honolulu and the rest of the island, including Waipahu, also in the Ewa district. Too many flowing Hawaiian words? Don't worry, the aloha spirit will lead you home even if you can't pronounce where you're headed! See more

What to keep in mind when looking for dog friendly apartments in Makakilo, HI

Finding an apartment in Makakilo that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.

While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.

If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
