County Honors HOA Restrictions on STVRs

Hawaii County government won’t approve short-term vacation rentals where homeowner’s associations prohibit them. The Board of Appeals ruled unanimously in denying an appeal from a Keauhou View Estates property owner. An Alaska resident purchased a foreclosed property in Keauhou View Estates in 2016 on an online auction site and rehabilitated it for a vacation rental. When she applied to be grandfathered in after the county began requiring STVRs to be registered, her application was denied on the grounds the homeowner’s association had a restrictive covenant prohibiting rentals of less than 30 days. The County honored the HOA restriction. [West Hawaii Today, Nancy Cook Lauer, 8.18.21]
