Kauai Community Reviews
Halemalu at Puhi Townhomes
This attractive community is located on the outskirts of Lihue, Kauai's center of commerce. It consists of 30 buildings in a 2-story, duplex-style arrangement and one stand-alone building. Each has a 2-car garage and a modest, easy-to-maintain, private rear yard. It's within a 15-20 minute walk of Kukui Grove Mall, Costco, Home Depot, and Kauai Community College. I moved here myself in 2009 to take advantage of the convenience of Lihue living. Homes range from 2 to 4 bedrooms, 2 to 3 baths, and 924 to 1,336 square feet of living area. Sizes of all Halemalu models and nearby Villas of Puali are compared in this chart.
In 2011, maintenance fees ranged from $236 to $287 based on size of the unit. Property taxes vary greatly depending on exemptions and a sampling suggests a 2009 range of $0 to $3,106 per year.
As of 2011, Halemalu is managed by Hawaiiana Management Company. Hawaiiana provides a link to the Halemalu community website containing links to Halemalu Governing Documents. Those documents include Bylaws, Declaration, Design Guidelines, and House Rules. Also included therein are financials, a board roster, insurance information, meeting minutes, and newsletters. Website contents may not be up to date so it's necessary to contact Hawaiiana to be assured of the latest information.
