kauai real estate: Hurricane Lane, Serial Murders and Kauai Real Estate - 08/25/18 01:52 PM
With lots of warning and time to prepare for the threating Hurricane Lane to the Hawaiian Islands, I prepared for upcoming storm. Not by filling my gas tank or buying cases of water but by walking to the library to stock up on reading supplies. The last major Hurricane to hit Kauai in 1992 left me with no electricity at my home for 45 days. I wanted to be prepared for boredom. So I checked out 4 books and put a couple of the 5 gallon water bottles from the water office cooler in my car and heading home on Thursday … (7 comments)

kauai real estate: Kauai Building Codes: non-conforming versus illegal. - 04/05/16 11:26 AM
Non Conforming vs. Illegal, What’s the difference?
 
Upon inspection I found 2 kitchens in this single famly zoned house. 
At a Kauai broker caravan a couple years ago I toured a house in Wailua Homesteads where the listing broker explained that the apartments located in the backyard “sheds” were non-conforming. “Excuse me” I said “there is nothing nonconforming about these units, they are illegal”.
 
The term non-conforming tends to be over used in Kauai real estate. (Probably because it sounds better then illegal). Non-conforming generally refers to structures that do not conform to current zoning laws but were built prior to the Kauai Comprehensive … (3 comments)

kauai real estate: What to do on Kauai this Summer: Allerton Gardens, Kauai, Tour. - 08/05/14 12:33 PM
Almost every Sunday my daughter, Kela Caspillo, and I watch her God-daughter, Kayzia. We are always looking for new things to do with her, (besides going to different beaches). This last Sunday we decided to go to Allerton Gardens on the south side of Kauai. On Sunday Allertons offers a Kamaaina discount rate. We took advantage of the rate. Not only were there locals on our tour but we also had visitors from Japan & the Netherlands. The beginning of the tour starts  with a scenic bus ride as it drives along the coast line in Poipu and goes inland towards Lawai. … (4 comments)
