Kahuna ~

I will retire in my 2 bedroom condo on the Pacific in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii 96745. Bought the Condo for cash in Spring 1994.

That is so great! I know you will appreciate the glorious weather compared to Kansas/Missouri winters. Of course, there is lots to love about the Midwest but, as I get older, I appreciate warm feet and hands.

The past few weeks I have been watching a show on HGTV called, "Hawaii Life" and have been very surprised at the affordable pricing. I am guessing that their real estate also had a downturn like all of the nation but there is a lot to be said for not having to deal with heat or air conditioning. I have some friends that have a large condo in Maui and they are there for 3-4 months during the winter. The rest of the time they are in Colorado and enjoy their waterfront home as well. They have four children whom they home school so it is great that everything is so portable and life goes on. My best to you and I am so happy that you have made wise decisions that will make your retirement a great one! When do you plan on permanently residing in Hawaii?
