City GuideHonolulu
“Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail / Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail / Noble kings and princes would bow whenever they came / Pirate ships would lower their flag when Puff roared out his name, oh! / Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea / And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee” (Peter, Paul and Mary, "Puff the Magic Dragon")

The name conjures images of palm fronds swaying in the breeze, soft, white sand beaches, and drinks with tiny, colorful umbrellas perched atop unnaturally blue liquids. Honolulu, Hawaii is, in a word, paradise. It’s the highly sought after, often only dreamed of location for epic vacations and destination weddings. But this beautiful pearl of the Pacific isn’t just an escape; for many, it’s home. Grab a ukulele, some ahi poke, and a blank check, because it’s time to hula into Hawaii’s rental market.

Not Your Average Paradise

The city of Honolulu holds the award for most populous in all the Hawaiian Islands, with over 390,000 folks. Honolulu is a major business hub, with a downtown area that boasts skyscrapers Los Angeles would be jealous of, and an active military base.

That doesn’t mean everyone is high-tailing it to the financial sector with a briefcase in one hand and coffee cup in the other. Count on seeing designer suits stained with shave ice syrup and more than a reasonable amount of Aloha shirts, regardless of the day of the week.

About Those Prices

What is Shangri-La for your spirit may be Hades for your bank account. Hawaii as a whole is far more expensive than the mainland, but Honolulu especially so. Compared with Denver, Colo., for instance, housing is 123%, groceries 52%, utilities 80%, and transportation 13% more expensive. Still, stress is rare when surrounded by a perfect seascape and endless summer weather. Just make sure whatever job you’re moving to can make those new expenses feasible.

A Few Tips Before the Move

Living the dream is exciting, but the reality of moving to an island is incredibly complex. Do you have a pet? Get ready for 120 days of quarantine, and you’re footing the bill. Do you have a car? Shipping it is still less expensive than buying new, but that takes planning and a reputable company (and you know, time). There is TheBus, the local transportation (which is pretty great) but you’ll wish you had a car if you don’t. No national bank chain operates in Hawaii either, so get ready to switch accounts to a local option when you get here. Furniture, personal items and any other household goods that you plan on keeping long term should also be shipped. Start cruising container companies for deals now.

Speaking of now, it’s just not reasonable to think anything will get done quickly. Ideally, you’re two months ahead of moving with a solid job offer, an acquired residence, and ties to local communities. But, barring that miracle, finding places to live in Honolulu may be a multi-step process of arriving at a hotel, grabbing the first short-term lease that will have you, and then slowly seeking out truly appropriate accommodations from there. Things can be pretty loosey-goosey; it’s important to be flexible.

On the Plus Side Hawaiians are some of the warmest, most welcoming people on the planet. Get involved in community activities like sports, volunteer groups, or dance classes and become “ohana.” “Ohana” means family, and family means nobody gets left behind. Plus, “no shirt, no shoes” is totally primo.

Finding the Right Neighborhood

Only a handful of districts in Honolulu offer more than a small village area and residential housing. If you’re dreaming of living within walking distance of cool shops and modern conveniences, your best bets are in Ala Moana and Waikiki, or probably back on the mainland. Locals aren’t big on boutique shopping, and they make due with weekly trips to the grocery store, which may be 20 minutes away by car. Still, there’s always the Internet if you have a desperate need for Forever 21’s disposable fashion.

Ala Moana: It’s all about high-rise apartment buildings and the biggest shopping center on the island. Ala Moana can almost pass as the real world, but it comes at a cost. It’s not quite as pricey as Waikiki, but you should still consider making friends and going bigger to save some cash.

Chinatown: No neighborhood varies as much in quality and price as Chinatown. You can find updated, modern, and open concepts and get gouged, or find others that are not nearly as nice. Or sometimes, you might discover problems as well as high prices. The point is, you can find a deal here if you hunt, plus it’s close to interesting sights.

Diamond Head: There are condos, single-family homes and apartments in Diamond Head, and each offers something different. But it ain’t inexpensive. It’s as expensive as Waikiki and further away from…everything. However, it’s a prettier location with fewer ambling tourists (but not much fewer).

Downtown: Parking is a big old mess here, and tickets pour out like pina coladas, so make sure you find a building that has reserved spots. Otherwise, Downtown is a great middle ground, as far as price and location, and it’s perfect for those who like walking to work. Pet friendly apartments are rare, though.

Makiki: If you don’t mind driving to the beach, grocery store, and restaurants, and you have detached-home dreams and overdraft realities, Makiki is the place to be. Purely residential, Makiki has a strong community feeling and a delightful inland separation from the hordes of tourists by the water.

Manoa: Another budget option, Manoa has property rentals with spacious lanais and comfortable if not recently updated amenities that should suit anyone with a hunger for true Hawaiian living, which is to say, quiet.

Waikiki: The brass ring of places to live in Honolulu, Waikiki Beach is full of active people from both nearby and around the globe. Clothing stores, chain restaurants, and luxury services pepper the streets lining the white sand beaches. So, yeah it’s hella expensive, dude. But through the nose is how you’ll pay if you want the best of everything.

Living La Vida Local

Hawaii is serene, slow-paced, and sociable; everyone is welcoming and they want you to join in on their activities. The lifestyle is very laid back, but outdoor living is a requirement. Lanais, which are outdoor covered patios or balconies, are an essential element of the home, and the place most house dwellers spend the majority of their time when not actually outside in the water, hiking the mountains, biking the trails, in the water, meeting up with friends, eating at shrimp trucks, or swimming.

Honolulu is absolutely a paradise on Earth, and it’s just this side of plausible that anyone can pick up and move there on a whim and make it. If you’re planning on whimming it to Waikiki, just remember Heaven has high tariffs, but the ocean, sun, and sand really do offer all you need.

August 2020 Honolulu Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2020 Honolulu Rent Report. Honolulu rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Honolulu rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Honolulu rents declined over the past month

Honolulu rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, and are down significantly by 2.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Honolulu stand at $1,503 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,996 for a two-bedroom. Honolulu's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.9%, as well as the national average of 0.2%.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Honolulu

    As rents have fallen significantly in Honolulu, large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Honolulu is less affordable for renters.

    • Honolulu's median two-bedroom rent of $1,996 is above the national average of $1,193. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While rents in Honolulu fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.5%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Honolulu than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $902, where Honolulu is more than twice that price.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S. at this link.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
