    Default Housing in Maui- how easy to find?

    There's a chance I will be relocating from the mainland to Maui in the near future for a medical job with my cat. Just wondering how easy it will be to find a place for the 2 of us? I have been to Hilo but not Maui. I LOVE Hilio, do you think I will like Maui and will i have to camp out on the beach or should I just check Craigs list?

    Anxiously yours, Angel

    I assumed it was a medical "partnership",since it is "with" the cat.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    Very important to remember that there is no shortage of housing anywhere in Hawaii.

    There is often a shortage of money in Hawaii though.

    Hopefully, through continued protest, and the persistant Politics of NO!, we can eventually preserve Hawaii for only the wealthy, and our children will all be forced to move to Las Vegas.

    You got kala (money), we got da hale (house). Only thing is your cat, most places have a n/pet policy so, you may need to scout around. Good luck!!!

    Well as much as I would love to have him with me, if it's a matter of me finding a place or sleeping on the beach, I am sure he would be quite happy here on the mainland.

    Is there a Hawaiian word for Taxidermist?

    O.K. You need to get it together here! "Y",oh "Y" would you be willing to relocate and jump at the chance of sleeping on one of our beaches. Are you, you better get your okole in gear, this is the 50th State and we have alot of problems right now! Stay in your own state cause we taxpayer`s are tired of paying for lo-lo`s like you. We have enough problems, just stay home, Thank you!

    Oggboy, I think what AOB was saying was that if she had to choose between coming here without her cat and living in a home OR bringing her cat and living on the beach, she would choose to leave the cat behind. (Or, kill and stuff the cat....)

    Her choice!, just get with it, or stay home with the cat. Somewhere over the rainbow, but not on the beach!

    Amati, Yes. That is exactly what I was trying to say. I would never stuff my cat, just trying to inject a bit of humor at my cat's expense. Ogg's point is valid as well. I like to think that I can solve more problems than I create. The more I think about it the more I realize that a cat creates problems and solves none, especially in such a place as fragile as Hawaii. I'm sure people thought mongooses were a good idea at one time.

    By the way I am not a 'her" but I can see why you might think that from my name - can't guys be 'angels' as well?

    Well, you did suggest the beach living option twice:

    As Oggboy suggests, in his own inimitable way, you need to do a lot more research on your own. This board can be helpful, but you gotta show your homework, too.

    Thanks Leo. I assure you I have no intention of sleeping on the beach unless it's recreationally. Just another (failed) attempt to inject some akaaka into my post. And yes, I have lots more homework to do. This is just one resource and I hope everybody here knows how much their input is appreciated be it complimentary or critical!

    O.K., now that you gave an honest opinion!, I suggest you check out Maui News.com classified.
    Maui, as well as the rest of the Islands have a shortage of nurses, so job wise you`ll be o.k. Maui Mem. Medical Center, Kaiser, Maui Medical Center are your best options, check their web sites. Also, like I said alot of places have (n/p)policy so you need to check your options. If you do find a place that accepts pets, might I suggest adopting a cat from Maui Humane. Oh, by the way thanks for letting setting me straight on the (her) bit My bad!!!

    And if you do need some medical work done on your cat, DON'T take it to Maui Memorial Hospital!!! Any hospital with the word "Memorial" in it is trying to tell you something!!!! As far as living on the beach is concerned, I wouldn't recommend it, you'ld be making a homeless person beachless due to overcrowding. On a slightly serious note, Iao Parkside is close to the hospital, (it's also close to the prison, the cemetary and the police station, wonder why that is??????), you could get a place there, temporarily, until you figured things out.. Just tell the landlord that your cat is actually a rather large rat, that way you shouldn't encounter any pilikia...........minoa'ka

    Aloha and Melekalikimaka

    I'm sure there is some useful information in there somewhere ..... ?
    Although, the "Mele Kalikamaka" IS decipherable.

    Think you may have missed an "I" , put in an "A" instead,,,,,must be those gnats on your keyboard, don't you just hate it when they get into your computer,,,,talk about bugs!!!!!! Iao Parkside would be a good choice for anyone working the "graveyard" shift at Maui Memorial,,,,,,,but, what would I know, only been here for two weeks...........I don't like Notre Dame at the moment...........
