Just about a year ago we saw the County of Hawaii implement a vacation rental bill to attempt to address many of the growing issues the vacation rental industry on the Big Island of Hawaii has seen. Through the first few months it was a learning process for everyone. Glitches had to be worked out in the application process while thousands of applications were coming in. Within that process we also found out that many of the "zones" were becoming an issue. A portion of Waikoloa Beach Rosort was actually not zoned a part of Waikoloa Beach Resort and a part of Mauna Kea Resort was actually not zoned to be a part of Mauna Kea Resort.
After close to a year I am wondering if more issues got made than what existed prior or if things are getting addressed. I still see home being built in non vacation rental areas with the intent of being rented out. I still see homes being built with over 5 bedrooms with the intentions of being rented out.
Just curious what other people in the Hawaii vacation rental industry are experiencing.
