Incredible Real Estate Deals You Can Find in Honolulu Right Now

These rentals are too good to last.

You hear about friends who find them, beautiful homes or fantastic rentals that don’t seem to make sense, in a time of concrete block studios listed for $2,000 a month in some areas. But they exist! You just have to have a bit of time on your side to wait for the right one, check Craigslist hourly and put a Realtor to work keeping an eye on the MLS for you, as many rentals there don’t go to Craigslist. Here are some deals we found last week.


Upgraded Three-Bedroom in Sunny Kaimukī

Monthly rent of $2,700 for a 3/2 is within the range of Honolulu normal, but this rental isn’t average. The home at 3517 Wela is within walking distance to everything: KCC, Farmer’s Market, Monsarrat eateries and boutiques, Kapi‘olani Park and the beach beyond. And it’s in fabulous condition—beautifully upgraded. It’s on Craigslist with a note that it won’t last, and we agree. You can view the listing here.
