We are grateful to our Governor and Mayors for doing a commendable job at keeping our residents safe. Our leadership was quick to respond and took steps to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Hawaii. Soon, Hawaii can re-open and continue as one of the most popular vacation destinations.
Below is an update to the availability of our rentals while we battle Covid.
Updated, Gov. Ige has extended the 14-day mandatory travel quarantine for people arriving in the state and the stay-at-home order until May 31, 2020.
Beginning March 26, all arriving passengers (residents and visitors) will be required to quarantine at home or in their visitor accommodation for 14 days or until the end of their stay, whichever is shorter. Visit Hawaii Tourism Authority for updates on travel.
On April 17th, All beaches are closed except to transit into the ocean.
The State cannot force visitors to not visit Hawaii, thus four counties made amendments to the ruling requiring all visitors to stay at hotels and all transient vacation rentals to cease activity.
Beginning April 11 to May 3rd, all Kauai Vacation Rentals are subject to the Governor of Hawaii's Emergency proclamation(s) and State and County rulings that mandate all vacation rentals and homestays on the Island of Kauai cease operations. (Hawaii Life Vacations can not accept Kauai booking dates that occur during Hawaii's Covid-19 Stay-at-Home order.) Current occupants of rentals may stay until the end of the pre-booked period. The State of Hawaii is discouraging new visitors at this time.
Beginning March 23rd, all Big Island Bed and Breakfasts, short-term rentals and time-shares were not identified as essential businesses or operations under the Governor’s Third Supplementary Proclamation.
