    Looking for guidance for relocation from Boulder area to Oahu.
    Have never been there. Don't know the neighborhoods. Please help!

    My son is 21. Studying natural medicine. Likes zenlike surroundings.
    I don't think he's figured out which campus he will be at.
    Does not want to be in a party zone (student ghetto).
    Toward the mountain would be nice, rather than in downtown.

    He will be renting an apartment.
    Any referrals to reputable property managers who might have multiple listings,
    or RE agents (do agents there help find apartments or only buy/sell RE?),
    or any propery owners -- house -- looking for a tenant.

    Thank you for ANY help you can offer!!

    The furthest distance between any two points on Oahu is only about an hour and a half by car.  It's a small place.  The most crowded spots are Honolulu (approx 375,000 people) and the eastern half of the North Shore (surf central, tons of pricey hotels).

    Short car or bicycle rides from just about anywhere can have you in jungle-like density fairly quickly.  There really isn't much down the center of the island.   The leeward side has a nice balance of small towns, many of which are at higher elevations.  If he needs peaceful surroundings, they are pretty easy to find. Just note that it's an expensive place no matter what since it's an island.
