I have lived at Iroquois for 2 years, and for the most part, really enjoy it here. <br><br>It is really hard to find a decent sized house in Hawaii for very reasonable rent, with a huge yard (if you cut the grass regularly, it looks really nice, I just wouldn't walk barefoot on it), and are actually allowed to have a pet (99% of rentals here in the islands don't allow pets). Not to mention the full size washer & dryer I've never had problems with.<br><br>The award winning elementary school is awesome. Super safe for walking to school. Air condition & computers in every room. Good staff. And, at the moment, not maxed out at full capacity like other schools in the area that have track schedules.<br><br>As for previous comments on the "plywood" walls (it is not plywood, but actually tongue & groove solid wood), bugs and non-airtight jalousies, that is a typical Hawaii house for you. Try to find a house anywhere in these islands built 25 or more years ago that is NOT built like this. This is a tropical island, insulation is not needed.<br><br>Outside is a private, peaceful neighborhood that you can enjoy walking or jogging around in. I love that!<br><br>I lowered my electric bill by about 40% by putting in flourescent bulbs. (I don't have central air and have only 1 air conditioner). Also, our electric rates are lower than on the outside. <br><br>Maintenance is quick. Pest control comes as often as I request. The fitness center is brand spanking new, not to mention state of the art.<br><br>Yes, the traffic IS Horrible (I do hate that), the residential office staff are jerks (more concerned about the "image" instead of the residents), the jets flying overhead are irritating, and I wouldn't dare step foot in the hazardous-to-your-health beach water (though it's nice to look at). But I think there are more positive things to this place than not.<br><br>I just got a letter to renew my lease agreement for the 3rd year, and my new rent has been lowered! I wouldn't be able to find a 4 bedroom house anywhere on this island for the price here!
