This leaves me in precarious situation. I live in a tiny small one bedroom apartment plus I am somewhat of a hermit by nature. I am one of those people that needs space and am a confirmed bachelor for many years, set in my ways.

I know appreciate the friends that come on vacation prepared with their vacation rental and car rentals , call me on the phone and ask if I have time to have lunch and catch up!
This actually happened twice, and I truly relished those hour's of my life!
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy company, just not for days on end with people I haven't seen since high school. How do I know if we will still get along? Good chance we won't, people change, especially in these days of political unrest.
Advise to people intending to
visit Hawai'i and stay with friends, DONT!
Many of us who make Hawaii home don't have swimming pools or make drinks with umbrellas
