The Hawaiian Islands are a tropical paradise, with the added advantage of being part of the United States. This, combined with an almost perfect climate, makes it the ideal choice for anyone looking to buy or rent a property, whether as a holiday home, or main residence.
However, buying or renting can be daunting to many people, therefore having a realtor who is customer focused and professional is a must. Hawaiian Shack prides itself on its outstanding service, putting the customer above all else. We guide you through each step of the process, using our unrivalled knowledge of the Hawaiian property market.
There are six main islands, and each one has its unique qualities, meaning that there is somewhere for almost every potential buyer or renter. This diversity, however, can make it particularly difficult to decide which one to make your home. Here is a small taste of what each island has to offer:
Oahu is the most populous island, with over 70% of Hawaii’s population living here. It is home to the state capital and largest city, Honolulu. If you are a lover of fine dining, shopping, and the nightlife, this is the place for you. Millions of tourists flock to the island, to see attractions such as Waikiki Beach and Pearl Harbor.
Hawaii Island or the Big Island is, unsurprisingly, the largest of the islands. In fact, it is larger than all the other islands combined. It is also the most diverse, here you will not only find beautiful beaches, but also rainforests and snow capped mountains to explore.
Maui is the second largest island. This is where you will find some of the best beaches in Hawaii, and, arguably, the world. This is the place to make your home if you are a beach lover. As an bonus, during the winter months, whale watching is a popular pastime.
Kauai is the northernmost of the islands and the oldest. Blessed with a natural, dramatic beauty, the island has featured in many Hollywood blockbusters, including “South Pacific” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
The island of Molokai has kept in touch with its roots, with the majority of its population being descendants of Native Hawaiian people. A place to relax and forget about your worries, Molokai is less “touristy” than many of the other islands.
If you want to get away from it all, the island of Lanai is the place to live. It’s so laid back; it doesn’t even have traffic lights! Be warned though, many of the roads are simply dirt tracks, and an off-road vehicle is a necessity in some areas.
So, as you can see, Hawaii has something for everyone. With this in mind, it is essential that your realtor has the necessary local expertise, to assist you in making the right choice. This is especially important if you are moving to an unfamiliar area. With our comprehensive understanding of the islands, we can help you with your decision.
