Hot off the Market: Single-Family Gem With Vacation Rental License Just Snapped Up

It’s not every day that you stumble upon a licensed vacation rental with a short-term permit in a single-family home on our beautiful island. But guess what? This property has just been sold, and it’s got exactly that.

In 2018, the County of Hawaii implemented a significant shift in the regulations governing short-term rentals, with a primary focus on channeling such rentals towards condominiums. Interestingly, this change permitted single-family homes to be grandfathered and granted a non-conforming permit (NUC), thereby enabling homeowners to continue hosting short-term rentals within their single-family dwellings. These homes, benefiting from this unique status, have become a rare and highly valuable find in the real estate landscape due to their scarcity and coveted NUC designation.

It’s truly an honor to have had the privilege of representing both the seller and the buyer in this exquisite property transaction. My heartfelt congratulations go to the buyer as they embark on this exciting journey with their new property. Here’s to many wonderful moments and memories to be created in their new home!
