"300,000-gallon saltwater pool with water slides"

I'm wondering if the condo owners reviewed the condo docs or the budget because in it one can see possible assessments.

Even so condo associations can and do make unexpected assessments. In this case it looks like it happened to some wealthy people.

If this happened in Florida the AG would be on the board like flies and force them into mandatroy binding arbitration. In Hawai'i I am not so sure because they do not seem very respectful of property rights.

Hopefully the AG in Hawai'i looks into this because if this happens to those people I can only imagine what happens to those who are less wealthy.

I enjoyed a tour of this complex in Dec. 2007. Unfortunately I was staying next door in not so luxurous accommodations.

Prosecute this crook to the maximum allowed by Law and revoke his real estate license. Should prosecute to set an example. Jail time would be appropriate in this situation. Also, have his unit liquidated to pay for damages

They'll probably just rent out the units as vacation rentals anyway, so any "costs" get passed on to the tourists.

ummm...where's there's smoke there fyah!

And I think it's funny how Oahu people or Steve from CA like to take shots at us who live here on Kauai. Get a life or something. Why so angry?

Oh that's right, WE'RE the ones with the world's best beaches and you're the ones with the 2 hour commute.

Not me, I just did my commute in 4 minutes. Sorry about the way you are wasting your life away...
