There are many rentals located there, and the best part is that only licensed agents can enter rentals. That cuts out scams by 99%. Be very careful on Craigslist and other ad sites, they're very sketchy. ... more

Aloha Novica,

Whenever I need a short term rental for neighbor island visits, or when friends and family visit, I always check The VRBO is an acronym for Vacation Rentals By Owner. They are usually in great places, have reasonable rates, and available for short term rentals. The site is pretty user friendly and allows you to sort searches by various criteria - rental amount, area, etc.

If you are checking the site and have general questions about a building or neighborhood, please feel free to call me at (808-222-4054) or email me at and I'll be happy to give you information to help decide if its the right place for you. I don't do property management so you will have to talk with the owner about unit specific questions, but many of the rentals are in buildings that I have probably helped clients buy or sell.

Good luck and have a great trip!

It's possible to rent a home with bad credit. It may however depend on why the credit is bad and how recent the derogatory marks are on your report.

Aloha Hailey

There is a furnished unit available at 1920 Ala Moana--very clean building and convenient, around $1250. Email me for details.

Craigslist might have what you want, but there are many scams. Do not send money to anyone claiming to be a landlord unless you meet them in person and see the apartment first.

There are only 5 apartments/studios under $1000 in the Metro/Downtown area, listed in the Honolulu MLS. However, there are other sources that you can check such as the online classifieds of the local StarAdvertiser newspaper, Craigslist, etc.

However, please be careful of SCAMS on the Internet on sites like Craigslist where there may be legitimate or false advertising. Never, ever send money if they ask and you should never answer personal questions online. I would suggest that you get a legitimate rental agent to check things out for you or ask a property manager to assist. We do offer property management in our company and they may be able to assist you.

If you wish to send me your email, I will forward a list of the active rental listings in the MLS in your price range. However, as I mentioned, this is a hot market, so they may already be rented.

Aloha and Best Wishes

Hi Will,

I owned a 2-bedroom condo at Kaiolu Sunrise. 2 BRs there fo for $2300 to $3000. One bedrooms go for 1/3 less, $1600 to $2000.
Some items that are wrong off the top of my head:
Parking is garage not carport
That is not a photo of the inside of Kaiolu apartments
None of the units have 2 spaces except the penthouse
There is no gas, only electricity
There is no sauna

I do not handle any rentals, sorry. A few caveats:
1. Do not do any transactions over the Internet. That is, do not pay anyone anything until you or someone you know sees the actual apartment. (most for vacation rentals) is pretty safe if the owner and apartment has been there more than a year.
2. Verify who the legal owner is. Send me the address you want to check and I will send you the name of the legal owner. Unless there is some unusual arrangement, the lease will have the owner's name, or the rental agency representing the owner.
3. Good rentals go fast. Fill out a generic application and keep it handy. Make a few copies. If you find a place you like, take it. Most short-term rentals will accept a credit card deposit.
4. Make sure you have dedicated parking for the entire length of the lease.
5. Refer to #1 when in doubt.
