Check to see if our house is licensed
  • When you rent a house in Hawaii for less than one month, the house must be licensed as a
    vacation unit.  Many advertised vacation rentals are being shut down because they are not
    licensed.  Before you make a deposit, check on the official county website to confirm you are
    dealing with a bona fide vacation rental property.  The zoning restriction must say -
    "Nonconforming Use TVU".  To search, put in the address, then click on "Zoning Info" on this

  • When going to the North Shore, the shrimp trucks are OK, but there is nothing like the
    Authentic Thai food at Haleiwa Eats.  We love the shrimp curry and coconut rice. You'll
    find it next door to Matsumoto's shaved ice at 66-079 Kamehameha Hwy in Haleiwa
