Kiahuna Plantation Real Estate Update- In a move to help the homeowners the Board at the Kiahuna Plantation lowered the monthly dues by $644 a month for May, June and July. They did this by deferring some projects and eliminating some services, Security not being one of those services, this was one area that they added to which was a wise move. This is subject to change given the fact that the immediate future is so unknown and it will largely depend on all owners staying current on their payments.
I applaud the Board for taking such quick action. By taking an all hands on deck approach they reduced dues by over a third very quickly.

My New Listing In Halelani Village
I just listed a very special Halelani unit. In case you are not familiar with this complex it’s located in Puhi which has an ideal location. Puhi is the very south side of Lihue which is close to Beaches, Golf, Costco, Safeway, Home Depot etc. etc. For under $400K this 2/2 is completely renovated with AC. $389,950 (FS) No vacation renting here but long term rentals are allowed.

Hawaii’s Beaches Closed, 100 Visitors A Day Still Coming
Despite the restrictions we are still getting a collective average of 100 visitors a day.
Last Friday our Governor made two supplementary proclamations; the first was a moratorium on evictions for long term rentals and secondly the beaches closed.
If you are considering turning your vacation rental into a long-term rental or if you have a long-term rental this news is important to you. It’s not stated how long this moratorium will last.
Secondly the beaches are closed for sunbathing, standing around, loitering etc. You can go across the sand to get to the water and then you can cross the sand to leave the beach and believe me they are enforcing this.

Status On Kauai COVID
State Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman remains cautiously optimistic about the stability of the island’s coronavirus cases.
Kaua‘i has a total of 111 licensed hospital beds, nine ICU beds and 15 ventilators and for now we have enough equipment to meet the projected demand of patients requiring treatment for COVID-19. But that could change.
As of yesterday we have only had 21 cases and it’s been about 10 days since we’ve had any new cases.
The State of Hawaii has 580 cases

New Facebook group formed by a group of locals opposing the current Shelter In Place rules.

Protesting In Lihue And Oahu
“The Beach Doesn’t Have A Virus” “Freedom Is Essential Business” “You Will Be Held Accountable We Did Not Consent” “Security Without Liberty Is Called Prison” so read just some of the signs held by about 30 protestors who marched in front of the Historic County Building in Lihue last Saturday.
Citing “government overreach” this group voiced their concern by putting together a Facebook group called Walk For Our Rights Kauai and taking their protest to the streets. No arrests were made despite the fact that none of them wore masks and it might be because the police were a little stunned. My experience is the people here on Kauai have largely been pretty compliant.
On Sunday a demonstration that consisted of 50 cars did a driving protest on Oahu from Costco to the state Capitol Building also protesting the stringent rules and perceived “over-reaching” of the Governor.
