About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

What's cheaper: a home or a condo with high maintenance fees? This came in from Jasin in Mexico City: I've noticed relatively high maintenance fees for condos and have also heard of tenants not paying them for such reasons.
