Living in Maui - Vern's Ohana in Kahana

Living Maui style - expensive!

Back in 2003-2004 Vern was living in a very, very small place on the island of Maui – and it was still $1100 per month. It was an Ohana – mother-in-law style cottage which is like saying a small building away from the main house. This house was only about 400 square feet and had bedroom, kitchen, and living room area. That’s it!

Maui is very expensive – I chose to live in Kahana on the west side of Maui, just past Ka’anapali.

The ohana was small and hot. Air con all the time or I just couldn’t stand it. There were multiple families of centipedes living under the carpet – and I was bitten once pretty good. The babies were so cute though… lol.

It was down the road here that I saw the largest centipede ever – and probably a world record. It was easily 12 inches long and the body thick like my middle finger. I thought it was a snake at first – big!

Here’s the map link to give you a better idea. I could walk to the beach for bodyboarding, surfing, snorkeling, free diving and spear fishing. It was a pretty ideal location because I was surrounded by retired rich folks mostly from California that were quiet and respectful. A great street to live on.

Maui is a great place to live – people are nice, I saw few people on drugs, but I didn’t live in Kahului in town. There were many hikes to go on, and of course I was up Haleakala more times than I can count. The surfing is OK in a few spots, and mostly it’s just a different, less touristy, atmosphere than staying on Oahu.

The living is good on Maui and I highly recommend it.

About the Author:

Moving to Hawaii was one of the most amazing moves ever. I strongly encourage you to consider it if you're in the financial position to make it work. Living in Hawaii has a fair bit of both positive and negative experiences awaiting each of us who give it a try. Read some of the articles here and try to get a feel for whether you might thrive in the islands. I wrote an entire book on the subject and it's usually less than $5. It's up there on the right side column. Best of luck and life to you! Aloha! - Vern L.
