Kauai's Hale Malu (Halemalu) at Puhi Update

Updated information for Hale Malu/Halemalu at Puhi Townhouse-style Duplex Homes

   

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 walking distance 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 sf of living area.  In January 2010, maintenance fees for the larger units were approximately $310/month and less for the smaller units.  Property taxes vary greatly depending on exemptions and a sampling suggests a 2009 range of $0 to $3,106 per year.
