There are several oceanfront property that I will soon be listing publicly in the Kauai MLS.  Here you can learn about them before anyone else!

Here are the first two.  

One is a beach house in Haena.  It's a two bedroom, two bathroom home on the beach.  It is on a good sized lot with a lot of privacy.  The lot has guest house rights and the house has a TVR (vacation rental license).  Here's a clip of me opening the door and walking out on the lanai.


The second one is a two bedroom, two bathroom oceanfront condo in sunny Poipu!  It's in Poipu Shores which has the most amazing pool!  Here's a picture of the pool at Poipu Shores!

The condo at Poipu Shores is currently used as a very active vacation rental!

As I turned off the Kuhio Hwy yesterday and drove through the Tunnel of Trees I started to reflect on what a special place the south side of Kauai is.

I was driving through the Tunnel of Tress on my way to an inspection of a oceanfront condo I listed for sale for the Owner and where I also represent the Buyer.  The market on Kauai right now is very hot!  Here's a snapshot of the oceanfront real estate market in the Poipu/Koloa area.

There are currently 15 oceanfront homes and condos for sale in Poipu.

Four of those are single family homes range in price from $1.865M to $6.990M.  They also range in both quality of built and current condition of property.  Two of then have TVRs or a Vacation Rental License.  They have been on the market

Real estate in Poipu and Koloa on Kauai's south side is the most popular area to own a vacation rental condo on Kauai.

Although the north side of Kauai is considered more beautiful, the south side has more sun.  Often when people come to Kauai on vacation they want sun.  They don't want to go somewhere it might rain 50% of the time. Which means they generally want to rent something on the south side. 

I currently have several oceanfront off market pocket listings on the south side!

These ones are not only on the water, but they are walkable to restaurants, shopping, snorkeling spots, and a sandy beach!

Here's a video walk through on one of them:

I've been helping a client of mine with the remodel of his beach house in Haena over the last year.  It is the nicest vacation rental on the beach on Kauai.  It's also the only 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom vacation rental on the beach on the north shore of Kauai!

2nd Floor Lanai

About a week ago the furniture was placed in the house and now it's just about finished!  There are still a few outstanding items like the landscaping, but for the most part it's almost done!!!  I couldn't be more excited for my client and for the people who will get to stay in this amazing beach house!

I did a video walk through today!  Take a look!

A couple of days ago I previewed the cutest house for sale in Princeville for a client of mine!  I can't stop thinking about it!

Here's a link to the walk through video I took of it.

Cutest House In Princeville

Here are some of the things I loved

  • Super private
  • Large picture windows
  • Screened in lanai
  • Private Spa area
  • Outdoor shower
  • Foliage all around the house

Off of the master bedroom there is outdoor access to a very private outdoor space that has a hot tub and an outdoor shower.  On the other side of the master bedroom is a screened in lanai...which is so lovely!

Watch the video and let me know what you think!

About a year and a half ago a client of mine bought a great little beach condo at Kalaha at Poipu Kai.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • One Bed
  • One Bath
  • Loft big enough for two twin beds
  • Ocean view
  • About 4 minutes walking to Poipu Beach
  • About 2 minutes walking to closest restaurant
  • Community Pool and hot tub, and tennis courts

When my client bought it she put new furniture in it and about a year later remodeled the kitchen.

Here's a link to her condo (not currently for sale) on her vacation mangers website which will give you a better idea as to the actual space, and can look at the calander for the occupancy rates on a similar condo:

Now there is a similar with the same features also for sale,

I recently attended the premiere luxury real estate conference anywhere, Inman Luxury in Beverly Hills.  It was great!  Incredible speakers, and even better networking opportunities.  I met power players in the Luxury segment from around the country.

This matters because good agents net work with each other to help their clients when they are buying in an unfamiliar market.  For example right now I have four properties in escrow.  Two of those were referrals from agents in other markets.  One came from an agent on the Big Island, the other from an agent in Silicon Valley.

On my way home from Inman Luxury I sat next to a producer for the HGTV show House Hunters.  We hit if off, and now I'm going to be on House Hunters!

There's good news, and bad news here.

The good news is that there are some select homes on Kauai that you can use as a vacation rental.  The bad news is that there aren't very many of them.

When people hear or read agents like myself talking about a house having a vacation rental license it's easy to make the mistake of thinking that you can apply for and get a vacation rental license and use it to vacation rent out the home you're buying on Kauai.  That is not accurate. 


There's no place like Haena on Kauai's north shore. There are a few incredible properties for sale on and off market. DM me for details! Aloha #kauai #hawaii #haena #beach #lifeisshort #buythebeachhouse #pocketlisting #kauairealestate

A client of mine is looking to buy a house on the beach on the north shore of Kauai.

He is looking for a beach home with:

  • 3+ bedrooms
  • 2+ bathrooms
  • within walking distance to at least one good surf spot
  • the beach in front of the home should not be dangerous (he has little granddaughters)

He plans to live on Kauai with his family and make it his home, so the property does not need to have a TVR. 

If you have a home that fits this description and you've even considered selling, I'd love to talk to you.  There is no cost, or obligation involved.

Please reach out to me so we can see if this is something that would work for both of you and this Buyer.  Anything that you tell me will be held in the strictest of confidence.
