There are grand plans for Kakaako, the neighborhood between Waikiki and downtown. Mostly, it’s a lot of new, hi-rise luxury condos, but developers are also trying to create an interesting mix of restaurants and retailers. Here, you’ll find Milo, a hip surf shop that also carries accessories for the home; Paiko, an adorable tropical botanical boutique, and Treehouse, a must for any photography lover, especially those with a penchant for vintage and film.
