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 n...

Yesterday was my last day in Hawaii for a while. At least until next month, anyway. Usually my last days are spent preparing to depart. Recharging my Ring, which this time I could not get off my gate. Looks like I will have to drill that baby out as the screws are stripped. Such a fine line between "tight" and "never unscrewing again."I also write a couple of blog posts so I don't have to get out of bed at 3 AM Hawaii time in Sacramento to create my daily stuff. Due to real estate-related work, I didn't get done half the stuff I had planned to do until the following departure day. Because it was time to visit a couple more beaches. When it's time to go to the beach, it's time to go.You can see a lot more photographs and read more in my personal blog today at this link: Mauna Lani Beach ...

We are packing up the house as I type this morning. I'm heading back to Sacramento to pick up more listings, and my houseguests, Josh and Vika, are flying out to Kauai for another week. Their families are arriving in Kauai for more activities. I swear, those guys ran me ragged.Like yesterday, they were out all morning while I stayed on top of my real estate files and argued with Lowes about our home remodel. I had planned to write at least two blogs while they were gone but spent so much time on the phone with other agents and my sellers I didn't get to it. Well, at least I have my priorities in order. Except when they came back to the house around noon, and I still wasn't finished with my work, I finally just said: to heck with it. Let's go to the beach. I can talk in the car. And off ...
