Nice to see this write up. I live here and many other things could be said but a nice summary. I do feel that a couple of items need some clarification. Transportation: There are no \"boats\" to other islands unless you are on a cruise ship, but many local flights. Also, Hilo, on the east side has an airport. Medical Facilities: Pretty accurate but I think there are many facilities in Honolulu that will serve before you need to go to the mainland. Many insurance coverages include the coverage for this when your needs can\'t be serviced on the Big Island. But if you need constant critical care this is probably not the place to be and many move back to the mainland if this happens. Also please note that low property taxes are only true for full time residents. But I\'m not sure that average of less than $1,000 is accurate. Hope this little addition helps. Aloha!

Very good info, thanks for these corrections. Nothing like inside knowledge from someone who lives there. In case you missed it, Mejask wrote a fabulous article for Topretirements on what it is like to retire in Hawaii.
