HOW YOU CAN HELP

1)  Join others in signing the online Petition on Change.org HERE  (if the link doesn’t work, copy and paste this link in your browser: http://www.change.org/petitions/please-enforce-the-existing-laws-on-illegal-vacation-rentals-in-hawai-i )

2) Educate yourself on this topic: Read our FACTS page for more details. Another way to get informed is to check out for yourself the various vacation rental websites to see how many are in your area. For example, go to http://www.VRBO.com and/or http://www.AIRBNB.com and type in a search of your area.  [For example, type in “sunset beach”, at last count there were 155 illegal units there.] Then compare that list with number of houses in the area and long term rentals available on Craigslist.com. You can also visit our Links page with other groups that also provide more information.

3) Wear an SNSN shirt or get a sticker or two! Email us for a FREE sticker: SNSN808@gmail.com

4) Join our ‘Trash Can Campaign’!  [see picture on the OUR SUPPORTERS page of a whole street that is showing support with stickers on their bins]

3) Report illegal activity. You will remain anonymous if you want to. [see ‘Report illegal Activity’ page for more information]

4) If you are a HOMEOWNER you can offset your mortgage by long term renting. Hawaii now has the highest long term rental rates in the country. There is so much competition for limited inventory, you will be able to find a great tenant! Here is a Thank you letter from us to you: AlohaResident-Homeowner2

5) If you are a long term RENTER in Hawaii, be sure to be a good tenant and thank your landlord! Print and deliver this letter from us to them: Aloha Landlord
