Over the past years the Board of Directors has been able to reduce both our Maintenance Fees and Club Membership Dues and continues to try avoiding any increases. The past year we had an unanticipated increase in maintenance and operating costs, and at the same time a drop in collection of our current resort fee. Given the current budget outlook for Year 2018 , the Board of Directors has approved an increase in the daily resort fee from the current $10/day rate to $20/day, effective January 1, 2018. This is the first increase in our resort fee rate since Yr 2009, resort fees are paid by all renters and non-family guests.
The Board of Directors understand the 1 January 2018 effective date may be of impact to some owners, however the Board
strives to have no increases to our Maintenance Fees and Club Membership Dues, but at the same time achieve a required balanced budget
Please advise your rental management company immediately or please be sure to update your rental listings on the various internet sites used for marketing purposes.
Resort fees will be capped at $500 per stay for longer term rentals.
The rate increase will help Halii Kai maintain a balanced budget. As our community approaches its 10th anniversary the costs of maintaining our property are significantly increasing. For purposes of comparison, a local condo resort with a club house currently has a $40 per day resort fee.
In a related matter, homeowners were sent out a form requesting information about the names of immediate family who are authorized to stay in your Halii Kai home. Less than 25% of those forms have been returned. Family members specified on that form are not charged resort fees. Without those forms in house all guests, including your family members, will be charged resort fees. Please take the time to return your list of family members to Hawaiiana, our management company.
Reminder: all guests and homeowners must register upon arrival at Hali Kai, Late night arrivals should check in the following morning at the Castle cottage at the propery's entrance. For safety and security reasons, we must know who is on property at all times.
Mahalo for helping to make Halii Kai operate in an efficient, safe and compliant manner.
