You may have always dreamed about visiting Hawaii, perhaps even done so in the past, but have you ever considered retiring there? Hawaii tends to jump out more as a tourist destination than an actual residence, however, for some seniors they call one of the eight primary Hawaii islands their home year-round.

Senior living in Hawaii is spread across the islands of Hawaii, Maui, O’ahu, Mokoa’i, Ni’ihau, Kaua’i, Lanai and Kahoolawe. Most of the islands are more familiar and popular with natives, though the islands of Hawaii, Maui and Oahu have expanded to be friendlier towards the rest of the U.S.

The vast majority of Hawaii senior housing is located near the water as inland Hawaii is notoriously more rural and rustic. As a result, you can expect wonderful views of the Pacific, sandy beaches and volcanic scenery that rivals nothing like you have ever seen in the world. Hawaii senior housing is phenomenal, but unfortunately there is not a lot of variety as the islands are small to begin with and do not offer a ton of different senior apartments or condos for rent.

The Big Island is your best bet if you are looking to relocate to Hawaii from the continental United States. Not only is there more variety here when it comes to senior living, but the rates are more reasonable.

Affordable senior housing in Hawaii ranges from $2,000 to $2,500 per month. Low income senior apartments are more expensive in Hawaii than the national average though the more luxurious units (averaging around $3,000 per month) are cheaper than some of the higher end senior complexes you would find in California, Florida and Texas.

Waikoloa Village, Hilo, Hawaiian Paradise Park, Wailea, East Honolulu, Kula, Aiea and Laie are considered the best areas to live in Hawaii and some of the premier 55+ and 62+ independent living communities are located here. Expect to pay more but feel like you live in paradise for the rest of your life!
