The housing market will make you faint. It's a resort town so real estate is some of the highest in the nation. $1000 will only get you a 450 sf studio. But it is Hawaii.

Congratulations. You are the first person to post in this thread in just shy of three years.

Hawaii apts & jobs.

Been out of the rental mkt for awhile_ expensive rentals.
When I looked last yr, 1 bdrm apt were 1,200. 2 bdrm units were close to $2k.
Don't know about jobs.
What I read is jobs can be hadl but, like the States it's usually part-time.
Chain Stores are beginning to close their doors.
Good luck
