Getting Ready to PCS to Hawaii?
If you are like my husband and me, we were beyond excited to receive the news we’d be moving back to paradise. But of course, we were nervous as it’s always a big deal to make the move.
Here Are Some Tips for PCSing from the US Mainland to Hawaii:
Figure out what the best lodging is for you (and your family). We took full advantage of the local hotels that offer TLA rates. It’s a great excuse to enjoy the Waikiki lifestyle for a bit. We enjoyed our stay at the Alohilani Resort. The Hale Koa is a great option as well.
Take Time to Figure Out Which City/Neighborhood is Best for YOU
If you are new or unfamiliar with Oahu. It’s important to take the time to explore the various cities on the island. Each city and even neighborhood offers its own uniqueness. The process of buying property in Hawaii becomes much simpler once you’ve narrowed down the location where you’d like to reside. Remember — location, location, location. My husband and I quickly made our decision to find a home in Hawaii Kai and have not regretted it since!
Furry Family Members
We can’t forget our furry family members! For good reason, Hawaii has strict guidelines on bringing pets to the Islands. Please visit the Animal Quarantine Branch for more information.
