If you're dealing with a national or international business, you should be ok. General rule for anything local is to ignore anything coming from the mainland, it's just too much of a hassle.
This is what I'm worried about.
I have included the details in my cover letter. I make sure to inform them that my husband was relocated, is already on the island, and that I want to move there ASAP. But I don't think they get that far once they see my return address.
I can't say since I don't work for the company you're applying for. Generally speaking, if the address or area code of the phone number isn't local, it's ignored. There are too many scams coming from the mainland and too many people looking for a company that is willing to pay for relocation.
If you have a cell phone, get your husband to get you a local number. Then once he has the place, put down the HI address. If it's questioned, just let them know you already have a place and you're just stateside until you get your house sold.
It may raise a few questions, but at least you'll be given the chance to explain.
