About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

How on earth can you afford living in Hawaii?

For most people vacationing in Hawaii, all it takes is one trip to the grocery store or a quick scan of the real estate classifieds to get hit with extreme sticker shock.  Yes, not only is it super expensive to live here, but most jobs pay significantly less than their mainland counterparts.  So the inevitable
