Make the Most of Island Life With a Tropical Home Near Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam
Moving to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam? Aloha, and welcome to paradise! This tropical island overflows with incredible scenery, monumental hikes, and is rich in culture.
Though you’re moving to an island in the middle of the Pacific, it doesn’t feel small. Here, the mileage (unlike most places) isn’t always a proper indication of your commute time — as is indicated by the bumper to bumper traffic in the mornings and evenings on the H-1.
Before we take a look at a few amazing homes available on the island, this is a good time to take a look at the 2020 Basic Housing Allowance (BAH) for Honolulu County. However, there’s nothing that can quite eliminate the sticker-shock many of us feel coming from the mainland.
