The problem in Honolulu is that most pet owners label their pets as service animals specifically to by pass the landlord no pet policy. There are very few accredited service animal programs so most tenants are ordering credentials for their animal from the internet.

Aloha Michaela,

Do you know that if you only go to open house to see property you may miss out more than 90% of the houses or condo that are on the market for sale that may actually be of interest to you?

Please consider working with us so we can help you get the place you want within the budget you expect. In today's market, it is very competitive for the buyers, by the time you go to the open house the place may be gone already. It is what we have been noticing lately.

please contact 808-3928393 for more info or email
I will help you not only showing you places but also provide you advices and assistance with loan specialists too to make it easier for you and your love ones.

Pretty much yes, all listings on Trulia are scams, or at least a lot of them......Do yourself a favor and avoid Trulia for rentals.
Best bet for none scan ads in Honolulu is to contact an agent and have them pull the listings off the MLS for you.
Not every rental appears there, but none of them are scams as REALTORS have to upload them to the MLS themselves and will lose their license if they don't post legitimate rentals.

Hope this helps, I am sorry for renters in Honolulu who have to jump through this morass just to find a place to live. Give me a call and I will try to help you. I don't do property rentals but I try to connect good people with my clients who self-manage.

And the best way not to have to deal with rental scams is to BUY A HOME, it is easier and more attainable than you think. Visit for more info.

Hi Douglas,

Do you know anyone here that can help you out? If not, the below advice is best:
Use a property management company
Do not send money until you verify who the legal owner is.
Get a hotel for a week.

You'll be competing with many visitors from the northern parts of the world, so I would try to go before Thanksgiving.

Here's a good article on how to bid on Priceline. I have gotten $250+ rooms for $99 buy using this technique.

Aloha Franck,
Please give me a call so we can discuss specifics. There are no barriers for foreign investors in Hawaii.
You will likely need the following:
1) A Hawaii bank account- makes it easier to deposit funds and pay taxes.
2) A local management agency if you intend to rent it out to make income. If you will leave it vacant when you are not here you will not need this step.
3) A great agent that understands ROI, CAP rates, and all the timelines that foreign investors make need to make sure the transaction gets completed on time. (Signing can take a little finesse if you are out of country to complete on time, Fed Ex is very important)
4) We need to set up a time to talk or skype so I know what to send you.

Please email or call me today.
808 271 2223

Or get started yourself with the only Google map driven search on Oahu. It shows every Home and condo available on Oahu. If you are an Iphone or Ipad user, there is also a free, no registration App that you can email me directly from as you find something you love.

Hiking Hawaii answered:
Aloha, for store specifics that you can see on a map, or on a list by type and distance, this is a great website:

To find information about stores, restaurants, attractions/recreation, banks, etc. in a given area, go to Then, 1) in the upper right corner Quick Search box, type Diamond Head (or an address or landmark in the area). 2) From the property list that appears, select any property and click Details. 3) Then from the Propety Details page, click Neighborhood for demographics. 4) From the Neighborhood page, click Neary Establishments. They will show up as a list, or if you prefer a map, click on More Details/Map.

To use the search, you'll be asked to select an agent -- please click on my name. (Your information won't be sold and my company respects your privacy.)

Also, to add to Chery's notes, there's a City Mill hardware/ lumber/ paint store at the corner of Waialae Ave. & St. Louis Heights Dr. It's smaller than Lowes & Home Depot but has a lot of basics for home improvement. Thanks and good luck!
