#Kimmi B. Look towrard Makakilo, Millilani, Kaneohe or parts of Ewa. Stay away from Section 8 here. Avoid Waipahu, Makaha, Waianae, Kalihi.

There truly is no middle class in Honolulu. It cost $1200 for the cheapest studio that would be considered (projects) or low income housing on the mainland. You either live in a slum, or you live in a Million dollar home.

Your best option would be to find a room for rent in a family home...they have many houses with "ohana or inlaw suites). These will still range from $700-$900 per month.

The only way we survive here is by sharing housing with others. I have 5 roommates and i'm almost 40 years old and make $60k a year.

Electricity at our house is almost $1000 monthly on the highest end, but $500 monthly on the lowest end. Our KWH rate is almost 3x what people pay in the mainland.

This would be tolerable if there were jobs for people that payed higher wages. There are not many jobs here...you have to be local/bi lingual to work at many of the resorts. You have to be good looking to work in the bars.

If youre coming from the east coast, you will find the work easy...the work ethic here is unbelievalbly lazy compared to the east coast.

Bottom line...its beautiful...its expensive, its hot, its humid, full of BIG ROACHES & RATS (even the million dollar homes are infested)

After 10 years, I'm finally wising up and leaving this paradise. Goodluck.

The Jones Act makes everything we buy and power almost twice as much as the average in the rest of the country. We could pay so much less if shipping had competition from all shipping companies.

Added references for tennis club rates (current rate around 20$ per hour per court).
