Honolulu County Reviews
To call the island of O'ahu, Hawai'i my home is most certainly a rare blessing above all else. Although the beautiful and lush paradise that surrounded my childhood and teenage years is slowly deteriorating due to the fast and ever-growing urban development of our island, I am still so very grateful for this hidden gem of a locale. The Aloha Spirit is something just as real as Southern Hospitality. The famous island weather (although us locals do only consider Hawai'i to have 2 seasons as opposed to 4: Rainy season, which replaces the typical Winter to Spring; and Hurricane season, covering the rest of the calendar year) may be finicky, but you can bet the sun doesn't shine brighter anywhere else and the air is clear and fresh! Most importantly, it is the Hawaiian culture that has been so lovingly and carefully shared and passed on that keeps my heart rooted into this island.
What I especially love about this area is the “aloha spirit” people have. Drivers are very polite and will let people cross the street or “pass” them without a problem. It is also centrally located, so many local stores and national chains are available at your fingertips. Malls, like Ala Moana (the most popular) and Kahala Mall, are easy to reach and parking is decently easy to find. The weather here is super awesome, with rainbows and beautiful sunsets. Even when it rains, there is always sun, and usually a rainbow :) It’s a beautiful place to live!
It's Hawaii. The weather is great! The people are wonderful and the landscape is gorgeous. There are disadvantages however, the cost of living is high and salaries do have not been adjusted for this. The isolation makes everything expensive and somethings are hard to get. Many stores on the mainland do not ship here because of the cost. But the people are some of the nicest you will ever meet and the weather is the best in the world. You can adapt, just don't walk around comparing it to the mainland. For that matter don't call the mainland "the states" Hawaii is a state.
