Northern Maui is a lot like living in Los Angeles.  Kauai is dope.

Nevertheless, he's going to be ruined for beaches for life.

I spent a 10 days in HI when I was in 8th grade and I have been ruined since.

Don’t you dare back out because of cost. I grew up on the beaches of Oahu when I was really young and it was awesome. Beach beach beach. 

Yeah I am going on week 5 out here on Oahu, 3 weeks left. Just love it. Just don’t eat out every meal and the expense isn’t that great.

Have fun!

The only advice I’d give is buy your groceries at Costco in Hawaii. There one right by Kahului Airport.  Pricing is fairly close to mainland while the smaller Hawaiian groceries will be outrageous.  Maui has some great farmers markets too.

We always buy fish and steaks at Costco in Hawaii once we arrive.  Then we hit the farmers markets when the horn sounds each day.  Good times.

Job offer fell in my lap. 30% base increase from what I’m making in FW which should theoretically cover the massive COL difference. Would be a 1-2 year thing max. I’m under 30, no kids, wife can’t work above table until we complete the green card process so no real strings. Mainly looking for other peoples experience living on an island, housing search tips, dealing with locals, etc.

yeah that's a great location, central, like you say.  although i prioritize my distance to costco more than others.  i love lahaina but it's a bit of a drive to kahului.  maui brewing co is a great place to spend time if you ever get beached out.

I’m too young to have watched it but somehow know y’all are referencing Magnum. Now stop it. 

Would you rather I pull out my McGarrett files, Dano?
