When is the best time to MOVE to HAWAII? Is it when you are young? Is it when you are old? Perhaps it’s best to come to retire…or is that the worst idea?

We sit down with a long time Podcast listener and friend, STEVE DEWEY and discuss his story and journey to Hawaii and his dream to plan his move to paradise.

Steve’s been coming to Hawaii with his Dad since he was a kid…most of his life however he has lived in Seattle. Steve and his Wife is just getting a little sick with the clouds, cold and gloom of the Washington area…but is Moving to Hawaii that easy?

What concerns does Steve have about his move to Hawaii? Many who move to Hawaii have difference circumstances as to why they can’t move today or limits them on WHEN they can move to Hawaii. We discuss these concerns with Steve and perhaps this is everyone’s chance to consider the reasons for moving and not moving yourselves to Hawaii as well as when and when not one should move here.


It’s been a while…3 years to be exact since we last had a conversation on this Podcast about Life Off Grid and living a Sustainable life here in Hawai’i.

A lot has happened over the 3 years since our first podcast on Living Off Grid in Hawaii. Our last Podcast on the subject has been one of our most popular, most downloaded, and most frequently asked about. It has reached #1 and #2 on the Google Search Engine.

It’s been a long time coming for this NEW ADDITION of OFF GRID LIVING IN HAWAII. Wayde’s Book Cover LIFE OFF GRID interview in the November 2017 issue of Hawaii Business Magazine and his Ebook has been release. Wayde discusses living off grid in Hawai’i and how to live a sustainable and affordable lifestyle in a State where the cost of living is the highest in the nation! We all know Hawai’i is changing and we must change with it if we wish to stay here. It’s the only way to sustain and protect our family’s future here in Hawai’i. Wayde’s been very excited to share with all of us the future opportunities that will be available for sustainable living here on the Islands of Hawai’i.

LIVING OFF GRID IN HAWAII will guide you step by step on how to live off grid, live a sustainable lifestyle and lower your energy and food bills while leaving a smaller environmental footprint on planet Earth.

They say there is a price to pay for paradise. There doesn’t have to be, when you start taking responsibility for the choices you make. We CAN afford to continue living in paradise when we take back control of our lives, but we have to stop talking about it and start taking action!

LIFE OFF GRID is a big step for those wishing more control and freedom. For our species to sustain itself for generations to come, some of us must choose to lead the rest of us down a path of sustainable living. If we don’t…we simply won’t survive as a species.

So you want to move to Hawaii, but you don’t know where to live…Today we discuss a few of the best locations to live on each of the main islands. There are reasons you may want to move to these towns as they are the best for certain things like surf or art…other towns are the best fishing or best to retire, others are great for families, some have marina’s and some are the sunniest…

BUT of all the Towns we talk about the one we DON’T recommend you moving or going to is KAILUA/LAIKAI on Oahu…it’s soooooooo OVERRATED today. Unfortunately so many Tourist books and Japanese have been heading over to Kailua it has truly LOST it’s small town feel…20 years ago this would have not only be a place WE would live, but a place WE would recommend you live as well. We can no longer recommend you go here. The community has had a love/hate relationship with people moving here and Tourists Tour Buses flocking to this beautiful small family town…because of these reasons Kailua is no more. Hopefully this will be a lesson for other towns in Hawaii like Haleiwa…hopefully they and others don’t follow in the footsteps of what happened to Kailua Town and we hope the community of Kailua steps up and takes their town back from the politicians and Bus Tour companies who have allowed this to happen to their town. One of the reasons our tours do not enter Kailua…We don’t wish to be a part of the problem no matter how bad our visitors want to see Kailua…we explain to them why we won’t go and they fully understand.

We discuss…

OAHU: Haleiwa, Mililani, Hawaii Kai, Kaneohe & Honolulu

MAUI: Lahina & Kihei (we forget to mention Kihei, but it’s a great affordable town and great for Families as well.)

KAUAI: Hanalei & Poipu as well as Princeville if you don’t mind some tourism here and there.

HAWAII ISLAND: Kailua-Kona, Hilo, Puna & Keauhou
