I'm starting to look for places to live in Oahu when we relocate, and was looking around at rentals, but are pet friendly rentals a hard find? We have a dog (~50 lbs) and a cat - are choices severely limited?

Anyone have any experience finding a pet friendly place?

I am looking too, my husband and I will be moving to Oahu with our 10 lb mini dachshund in late May/early June. I have noticed a decent amount of rentals on craigslist that say pets are fine or don't specify no pets specifically.

I'm also looking for a pet friendly rental. A lot of the ones on craigslist say things like "one small pet < 20 lb," and my dog is about the size of yours. Plus I have two cats.

I have two good leads right now, but if neither pans out, I will probably pay for a month on this website:
PETS OK* - Pet Friendly Rental Home Finders

And my goal is to buy some rental property and have a minimum dog size for my tenants. (No dogs under 40lbs!)

My wife and I found a condo in Upper Makakilo that accepted our dog and cat, for slightly higher rent.

Our hunting experience showed that craigslist was the best place to find pet friendly places, and that even where places that say that they don't accept pets, pets are usually negotiable.

Yep, I've come across some rental scams on craigslist. They're usually easy to spot and they sound like something that sounds way too good to be true, like a 3 bedroom house for $1000/mo. If you reply, you get some email about the person is leaving the house to you while he goes away on a mission in Africa or something.

I still say craigslist is a very good resource. Also, if you know a realtor on the island, that helps a lot too.

I am looking for a place in Oahu as well but I have a Rotty (100+lbs) and two mutts (both over 40 lbs) and I can't find much of anything really affordable to rent there with the option of bringing my dogs. I will problably be looking to buy a place.

Default Pets in Hawaii

It's amazing how hard it is to find a decent place to live that's affordable. I expected to downsize, but not to the slums. You have to pay over 2000.00 to get someplace clean. We found a small apt. that called themselves pet friendly, but they put out traps for feral cats. If your cat gets trapped it's off to the pound and pay fines. Most places want inside small animals. Waikiki picks up any loose animal and takes to pound. Most places are lacking yards or much green space if your cats are used to outdoors. We've been looking off and on since April. They are not allowed to charge pet deposit so they up rent.
