The fertile central valley between the Waianae Mountains and Koolau range offers a peek back in time. Agriculture on the island was booming in the late 19th century, attracting immigrants from around the world to work on plantations. Central Oahu today covers residential areas from Mililani north to the Launani valley and through Wahiawa to Whitmore Village. Mililani was originally developed in the 1970s by Castle and Cooke and has grown to become a desirable community with excellent schools, shopping and recreational facilities. The Central Oahu community has a variety of single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums covering all price ranges from starter dwellings to executive homes. Prices range from low $100,000s to over $1,750,000.
