I can tell when someone is really considering buying real estate on Kauai when they start asking about property taxes.  :)

The good news is that compared to almost everywhere Kauai County has a low real estate tax rate.  It is a little different however than most places.

Real estate taxes on Kauai is based on a combination of both the county's assessed value of your property and how your property is used.

The 2016 real estate tax code for Kauai county is as follows:

(Per $1,000 Net Assessed Valuation)                             Tax Rate

Homestead                                                                      $3.05                        

Residential                                                                       $6.05

There are miles of a sandy shoreline, starting at Lydgate Beach Park and continuing south down the Coconut Coastline, and most people on Kauai don't know anything about it!

Kaha Lani is a small condo complex located on the beach between Lydgate Beach Park and Kitchens beach.  Kaha Lani is one of the very few condo communities on a sandy beach on Kauai.  The majority of them

Do you love Kauai's north shore?  Are you looking for a beach house?

There are very few of them on the market right now! At this moment there are only eight beachfront homes for sale on Kauai's north shore.

Only two of these homes have vacation licenses (the ability to rent the house out to vacationers when the owners aren't using them). However,  it is what everyone wants!
