As a young adult resident, I can definitively say that Waikele is a great area to live in. The community members are highly involved in community clean-ups and other service projects, and they are very friendly and supportive.

There has been a bit more crime since the access bridge to Waipahu was opened, but that does not impact my overall experience as it is still rare for something to occur.

My husband and I were in Hawaii for at least 2 months for medical reasons. My husband's uncle and family lived in Waikele for quite awhile and the short time we were there, it was an awesome experience. It was a very friendly neighborhood with walking distance to the Waikele Premium Outlet. If I were to visit Hawaii in the future I would loved to visit back there.
I love Waikele it is such a safe neighborhood to live in and it is very close community. Everyone watches out for each other and we always greet each other with smiles.
