One caveat...if you do find something to your liking in this range, you may have to pull the trigger quickly. Cheap homes in Hawaii don't last long...Get prequalified, and be ready to write an offer ASAP if your agent advises you so.
I hop you make it to Hawaii as I am sure you will enjoy living here.
As for what is available for approximately $200,000, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths please visit my website at http://www.hawaiirealestatestatistics.com and look under "Trulia Answers."
There you will find the listings I have pulled for you.

The lowest priced homes on Oahu go for $250/SF and up. $200,000 will get you a condo for approx 800 SF, in an area outside of town (Metro Honolulu).
Most people downsize by 30-40% when they come here, so I recommend going to less than 1200 SF. Or perhaps start with a studio if you can, then work up to a bigger place. Do you have family members with you?
