    yes, Miana; you're an honorary member.

    Will you have transportation of your own, such as your own car? or are you depending on public transportation (bus) ? It also depends on on your interests.... Do you want to be by the University of Hawaii? the north shore for winter's big waves? need to know more of your needs and wants, before we make a recommendation. Don't go for cheap rent, cuz it's probably the inner city areas and not safe.

    Thanks. I'll bookmark the page aswell as this board. Still about a year before we start looking for a place on the Island but I was just curious to which areas would be the best to live... for decent rent.

    There's very little decent rent, depending on whose cost of living you are comparing to. We are a resort area, so expect high rent. Why do you need a 2 bedroom? which is why I posted the classifieds to look over. Affordable is in the country where a car is necessary to get about. If by 2 rooms you mean one bedroom plus living room/kitchen, then you could find a nice one for that amount. Living here is like living in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, Miami Beach. Boston. Are you married/single? children coming with you? Do you need to be on the bus line? Laid back beach nut? :confused:

    I can vouch for the busline. Having lived in Southern California my entire life and daring the buses of Los Angeles and San Diego, I loved the bus system (at least the part that ran through Honolulu and Waikiki.) on Oahu. :)

    I'm going to finish up school here, then move out there with my dad. So 2 bedrooms + living room area, kitchen would be nice.

    That's why i'm curious as to where you locals live and how much in rent you pay and what kind of place it is :) Just for curiousities sake.

    When are you coming? There's a front page side bar in this morning's newspaper highlighting shortage of housing in Hawaii right now.

    ok; hopefully housing shortage will be over by then. the best time really is late May and early June, when all the college graduates move on. Fall will be tight cuz all the college kids are returning by August.

    That is the biggest thing that separates teh Hawaii goups from teh mainland ones. (my 2 credits) It feels like family.
