Many people dream about retiring to Hawaii and what better place can there be than on the “Garden Island” of Kauai. If you have had this as a goal for many years or even just a few months then what is holding you back? This new listing is the perfect spot for you to live a simpler life in a nice single story home. Listed at only $547,000. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is turnkey and literally move in ready. It is being sold furnished and has everything you need at your fingertips. Move in the direction of your dreams and make your goals a reality.

Condo vs Home Purchase?

Many people think about purchasing a condo when they retire… but do you really want to pay the monthly association dues? Especially here on Kauai, the monthly maintenance fees for condo living can be very very high ranging from approximately $550 for a low all the way up to $2200 per month. Why not save that money for traveling or dining out? Instead, live in a comfortable small home where you are always assured a parking spot by the front door. Additionally, you can pick your own fruit from the yard year round. Rest comfortably, knowing that vacationers will not be walking loudly in the condo upstairs or partying by the condo pool while you are trying to relax.

Built in 2015 – Owner Occupied for 4 Years

Owning a newer home that is less than four years old with only one previous owner means you can move in without immediately having to fix things up. If you don’t like to maintain your yard there are several landscaping companies who will be happy to take on this lovely little yard. There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied; it’s just a short drive away there are beaches, shops, and restaurants.

Share the Aloha Spirit

If you want to make friends…then the best way to do it is to smile and share the aloha spirit. Take the fruits you harvest from your yard and share them with your neighbors. Kauai is special and everyone wants it to stay that way. So if you are moving from a bustling city on the mainland…leave your city ways behind and take a deep breath and slow yourself down. Island time means no rushing around and taking the time to enjoy this beautiful place and all it has to offer.

Hi. Property is at our price point. If you have apartment listings, please send them as well. We’d like to rent before we buy. We also are thinking about starting a small business if we decide to stay longer than a year. Do you know anything about the property in Kapa’a – a grey two story corner building across the street from Java Kia and next to the Mexican restaurant?
