This story has now bee featured around the world. No vote was taken. Ten our to twelve members of the Kailua Neighborhood Board has slandered their town and presented false witness against their neighbors. Shame on the Neighborhood Board 31.

Kailua is a wonderful beach town that welcomes visitors with over 500 locally operated B&B and vacation rental homes where visitors can live like a local resident and experience Hawaii like never before.

Beautiful azure waters, clean white sand beaches, friend locals, great local prices on groceries, gifts, and restaurants.

E komo mai! Come down! You will like Kailua.

Most are illegal. That means that those who stay in illegal rentals are having an illegal vacation experience. Not cool.
