This is a great article in the WSJ published on April 12, 2019.  It goes through the pros and cons of paying cash, or getting a loan for your luxury property.

Yes, There is a Right Time to Take on Debt for Your Luxury Home

In Kauai's real estate market we do have a much higher percentage of cash buyers than you would in a more conventional market.

Generally getting a loan for over 4 or 5 million is very difficult.  There are a few lenders that specialize in high end financing and can go much higher that this (20M+).  My clients who have used their services have also received more favorable terms that most loans can offer.

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!

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

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
