Property Management: Overview

Kauaʻi Property Management

Thank you for considering Oceanfront Realty as your professional on-Kauaʻi property manager. Hawaii law requires all owners with a Hawaii rental property to have a property manager on the Island where the property is located.

Oceanfront Realty has been professionally managing Kauaʻi properties for owners like you since 1985.
All of our property managers are full-time managers who do not sell real estate. Because this is our property managers' only career, we devote a tremendous amount of time and energy to staying current on market conditions and rental laws.

Knowledgeable Staff
It requires significant time and knowledge to successfully manage your Kauaʻi rental and to keep up with the many regulations and legal issues involved.
Our property management team has the education and experience to maximize occupancy and your rental income, keep your property well maintained to prevent problems before they arise, and deal with situations promptly, efficiently and legally.

Accounting and Taxes
We will pay your operating expenses such as electricity, yard care and pest control. You will receive detailed monthly and year end statements.
We will also file your General Excise Tax (GET) and Transient Accommodation Tax (TAT) reports to the State of Hawaii for a nominal filing fee.

Trust and Confidence
A rental property is a big investment and you need to trust your property manager. We take pride in providing prompt, friendly, professional service to all of our owners, guests and tenants.
Our property management philosophy is simple: We treat your property as if it were our own. You can rest assured that we are caring for your investment professionally and responsively.
We look forward to helping you professionally manage your Kauaʻi real estate investment. Please contact us for additional details.

As a property owner using Oceanfront Realty to manage my condo, I am very happy and grateful for the details of the services I received. Their service is far better and more professional than other agencies I have dealt with. They do look out for the interest of each client unlike some agencies. They work hard to get the condo occupied whether it was a vacation rental or later, being a full time rental. They stay on top of the problems and make sure they are resolved in a timely manner while minimally affecting the occupants.

I could not be happier that Oceanfront provides my on-island representation. From being there with me to inspect my property, making repairs, or planning upgrades Oceanfront has been great. However, it is when things are not going well that the vital importance of having Oceanfront there to be my vigorous advocate is most clear. When I needed them in a crisis, they were there for me. Robyn Apisa and the great people at Oceanfront had my back and I will not forget how they helped me solve the problem. I sleep better at night knowing I have such professional management.
