You might want to read:

It is a little outdated where rental costs are concerned but it does have a wealth of other info.

I suggest you avoid the homestead areas of Waianae (Nanakuli, Makaha, etc.) and Waimanalo.

A more friendly environment might be found in areas like Mililani, Makakilo, Kailua, Hawaii-kai/Aina Hina area, Kahala- St Louis Heights (older neighborhoods), and parts of Kaneohe.
