Unexpected ocean views from this third story unit in building 16. Right on the views and right on the price! Listed at $125,000 (LH) Take a video tour by clicking on the photo.

Unit #98 has ocean views that take most people by surprise. What people don’t know is on the top floor of building 16, which is located back by the road, there are some really nice ocean views for great prices. List price is $125,000 (LH)

My other listing, #140, is a two-bedroom with a little something extra that only 10 units at the Kiahuna Plantation have: stunning cathedral style side windows.   They are so gorgeous!! Additionally there are open beamed ceilings, a third lanai off the kitchen with a storage closet, completely tiled both upstairs and down and it goes on and on.   Take the video tour of #140 and contact me for more details.

Poipu Beach Proposed Dairy Farm To Pay Over $500,000 To Local Poipu Group
The “Friends Of Mahaulepu” won their Clean Water Act lawsuit against the Hawaii Dairy Farm last week, the Dairy has been ordered to pay $506,328 in attorney’s fees and court costs associated with this 3 year long battle.  In addition to the more than half a million dollars in costs and fees, the courts ordered Hawaii Dairy Farms to pay $125,000 to fund a supplemental environmental project for stream-bank restoration and endangered species protection at Makauwahi Cave Reserve. Part of the $125,000 will also go toward reforesting adjacent uplands and increasing efforts to manage endangered species on adjacent properties.

The Friends of Mahaulepu filed the case because the Hawaii Dairy Farm began construction on the 557 acres dairy without permits including a “National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System” permit. This was a violation of the Clean Water Act.

The animal activist group PETA had also gotten involved by way of writing a letter to eBay founder Pierre Omidyar who is the financer for the Dairy, an animals rights group called upon the billionaire to scrap plans for a Kauai dairy farm, citing environmental and animal safety concerns. The letter reads. “A dairy operation — which creates manure runoff as well as odors and which has the potential to contaminate groundwater used for drinking — is contrary to everything that Kauai is.” Omidyar hasn’t yet responded to the letter.
