Waipahu Homes for Sale

Formerly a land of sugarcane plantations up until the 1990s, Waipahu is now a thriving suburban city in the central Ewa District of Oahu. It is a town that holds a lot of interesting island history.

In Hawaiian, “Waipahu” has a two-part meaning: “Wai” meaning water forced up, and “Pahu” meaning explode. Though this sounds wild, it is anything but. Rather, the name was coined about the city’s historically cool temperatures, and clean gushing ground water. It was a city that was much adored by Hawaiian royals, so much so that they considered it to be the island’s real capitol city. 

When western influence commenced, sugar plantations were born. Field workers were brought from other parts of the world including Japan, the Philippines, Korea, Puerto Rico, Portugal, and China. It is through these multilingual interactions that a common language was formed, known as “pidgin”, which is still widely used by many locals. The sugar business existed for over 100 years, and after its demise the many workers that took residence in the industry-built villages dispersed throughout the island, many staying and going on to start their own small businesses. 

Fast forwarding to present day, Waipahu is now known for its excellent central location and its quick commute to bigger cities on the island including Kapolei, Pearl Harbor, and downtown Honolulu. Waipahu also includes the neighborhoods of Waipio, Royal Kunia, Waikele, and Village Park, which share its 96797-zip code. Here, residents live in the full gamut of home types: townhouses, affordable family housing, condos, and single-family homes (some simple, some upscale). They also enjoy its urban convenience offerings including numerous grocery stores, banking services, and other essentials.
