KBR Smoke Detector Policy

Association Policies

Renovation Procedures – Owners are to submit a rough sketch/drawing with a written description of all plans for any renovations to their unit (i.e., interior or exterior flooring, remodeling, alterations and/or modifications to the structural design, etc.), to the Kepuhi Beach Resort/Property Manager, and Dale Matlock . Be sure to submit your proposal project in writing (via email or mail) to Dale Matlock to get board approval before you remodel.
The Owner must await written approval, before beginning any physical work. Owners are to acquire all applicable permits. Upon receiving approval from the Board, you will receive a letter with additional rules to follow (see Owner Remodel/Renovation Information below). There will be steep fines assessed to those that do not comply with this procedure.

Louvers – The Kepuhi Beach Resort (your Board) will purchase the wood/materials and contract the installation for new louvers (on an as needed basis), and charge back 50% of related costs to the Homeowner of the unit. The mechanisms are the sole responsibility of the Homeowner.

Doors & Jambs – The front entry door, door jamb, door stop and casing may be replaced as requested by an owner, provided the Property Manager has inspected the door and adjoining materials and confirmed the door needs to be replaced.  The homeowner will assue 60% of the material and labor replacement costs and the Kepuhi Beach Resort AOAO will reimburse the owner for 40% of those costs.  The work will be contracted out with the exception of those Owners that have indicated and demonstrated to the Board an expertise in this area and wish to conduct the work themselves.  The door hardware (hinges, door knob and locking mechanisms) may be replacd as the owner wishes, at their cost.  The Kepuhi Beach Resort Property Manager maintains a list of local contractors who are capable of performing this work; however, neither the Property Manager nor the Kepuhi Beach Resort AOAO will warranty the work done by private contractors.  If it is determined that the door only needs to be resurfaced, the AOAO’s painter will, within his already scheduled duties, refinish the door by stripping old paint, sanding and applying primer, before coating it with our new durable paint.  (Adopted November 24, 2015)

Keys Left for Emergencies – All Owners are requested to supply the Kepuhi Beach Resort/Property Manager with a key to their unit (for emergency access) that will be kept under lock and key. If no key is provided and an emergency arises, access will be gained by whatever means necessary and the Owner will assume responsibility for all costs.

Manager/Board Mailbox – A mailbox is installed outside the office door as a drop box for Owners that have renovation requests, suggestions or submittals for the Board and/or Kepuhi Beach Resort/Property Manager. Please put all letters in a sealed envelope, & address to the intended recipient for security and privacy purposes.

LONG TERM PARKING POLICY FOR KEPUHI BEACH RESORT HOMEOWNERS

In order to provide a resort atmosphere and present a pleasing “curb appeal” to the residents, owners and visitors of and to the Kepuhi Beach Resort, the following policy is to be adopted.

Each Kepuhi Beach Resort AOAO homeowner shall have the option of storing one (1) automobile in the parking spaces designated as “long term storage” at the Kepuhi Beach Resort, provided the following rules are followed:

1. APPEARANCE
The automobile must remain presentable. Although accumulated debris on the vehicle or its covering is to be expected, broken and/or rusted through parts on the exterior, or those in the interior visible from the outside, must be removed or repaired. In the alternative, the vehicle may have a properly secured cover so as to make a presentable appearance.

2. CAR COVERS
While it is recommended that a suitable car cover be supplied and properly secured to prevent damage to the vehicle, a properly secured tarp is acceptable. However, in the event the car cover or tarp become torn or unserviceable, and security, the property manager and a board member deem it so, the property manager is authorized to remove and dispose of the car covering. The property manager will then notify the vehicle owner that the vehicle is now uncovered, either by e-mail or postal service. If the uncovered vehicle is presentable in its appearance as defined in #1 above, the vehicle may either remain uncovered or the owner may supply a new cover for the property manager to install and secure. However, if the vehicle is not presentable in its appearance and the owner has not supplied a suitable replacement cover, the property manager will supply and secure a new tarp and bill the vehicle’s owner for the costs.

3. MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION
All automobiles in long term storage must be currently registered.

4. ENFORCEMENT
Enforcement of this rule shall follow the procedure as all the other Kepuhi Beach Resort House Rules, with the following exception:After the two warnings have been issued and the fine has been imposed, if within the following 60 days the vehicle owner has failed to comply, a private towing company shall be hired to remove the vehicle from the Kepuhi Beach Resort property. Removal, towing, and storage will be at the owner’s expense.

AOAO Lanai Policy – Lanais must be kept in a generally clean, orderly and uncluttered condition so as not to detract from the appearance of the property.

Allowed items – Only Lanai furniture, designed for outdoor use, may be visibly kept or stored on the lanais. “Visibly kept or stored” means items left dormant, unused and visible (from a distance of 10 yards) for longer than 24 hours.

Temporary items – may be placed on lanais but only while in active use and visible for no longer than 24 hours; i.e., trunks, coolers, boxes, construction equipment, tools, garbage containers, cleaning supplies and equipment. Recreational equipment such as surfboards, golf clubs, and bicycles may be temporarily kept on lanais longer than 24 hours provided the condominium unit is occupied.

Prohibited Items – The following items are prohibited on lanais at all times: Anything that presents a health, safety or damage risk, electrical appliances, indoor furniture and fixtures, shelves, cupboards, cabinets, clothes lines, drying racks, wall hooks, towel bars, planters and pots, or any items hanging from or attached to the ceilings, rafters, posts or railings.

Decorations – Homeowners may decorate up to 8% of each lanai wall (excluding windows) with discreet decorations that blend in with the surrounding area and are designed for outdoor use. Example: An 8’ x 10’ wood wall surface can be decorated up to 6.4 sq. ft. (roughly a 2’ x 3’ decoration). Bold, flashy, fluttering or dominating decorations (or curtains) that clash with the building’s color and features are prohibited.

Lanai Lighting – Only pre-authorized and professionally installed exterior light fixtures which do not shine direct light off the lanai are permitted.

Sunshades – Only the following Board approved exterior roll-up sunshades are allowed to be used on lanais. Primary Recommended Product: Coolaroo Premier or Designer Models, color: Sandalwood or Desert Sand. Secondary Products: Weathershield Exterior Models, color: Chestnut. Phifer Sheerweave or Suntex Models, color: Brown, Bronze or Charcoal/Chestnut. All shades must be the roller shade type with the continuous loop “clutch” mechanism and must be installed according to manufacturer’s instructions. When the lanai is not being used sunshades must be rolled up neatly. Sunshades must be kept in good physical condition at all times. Upper units should install sunshades so they are hidden by the overhang of the roofline when rolled up. Lower units must install them on the front-most beam of the lanai ceiling. Rollup chains must be secured to wall or post to keep them from rattling and blowing in the wind.

Damaged Items – Any item in a distressed condition, or visibly in disrepair, must be immediately removed from sight. Failure to do so may result in AOAO removal and storage at owner’s expense.

No items of any kind are to be kept or stored, nor decorations displayed, outside the boundaries of the lanais.

Locker Rental Policy After purchasing a unit at the Resort, the new Owner will be given first right of refusal for a locker that the previous owner of their unit occupied. Thereafter, occupants of each building (or cottage duplex) will be given first priority to have a locker in their building/cottage duplex. However, any Owner of our Resort may rent the locker if the Owner in that building/duplex, did not already have their name on the waiting list.

Owners deeded to more than one unit are eligible to have one storage locker per unit, so long as another Owner does not have their name on the waiting list for the next available locker. If an Owner has more than one locker, and another owner with no storage unit requests a locker, the owner with multiple lockers will be required to surrender the locker of choice.

If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please put your request in writing and drop in the mail slot at the Kepuhi Beach Resort/Property Manager’s Office (Unit#1171) or email Connie Fox.

Owner Remodel/Renovation Information

Homeowner’s Construction Letter

Dear Homeowner:

We are pleased that you have chosen to upgrade your unit. We ask that you provide the Board with a simple sketch of your unit diagramming all remodeling/renovation plans as well as a detailed letter explaining your intent, and the name of the Contractor that will be overseeing your project. Upon acceptance of your plans, the Board will email a written response of approval allowing you begin your renovation.

We ask that you and your Contractor comply with all rules listed below. We have enclosed a duplicate copy of this letter for you to present to your Contractor. It will be your responsibility to see that your Contractor strictly adheres to all rules. The rules were put in place to protect our property and ensure that disturbance to your neighbors is kept to a minimum during the construction/remodeling phase.

  1. No driving over the walkways, sidewalks, or on “greenbelts,” etc. This is strictly prohibited as it breaks sprinkler heads and damages the lawn. A vehicle pass may be obtained from the Property Manager (or an approved staff member) for unique circumstances. This pass must be signed by the Property Manager and placed in clear view inside the windshield and will be permitted for no more than one day.
  2. Any work that causes noise (drills, hammering, etc.) is to be conducted between 9am and 5pm ONLY.
  3. No noise AT ALL on Saturday’s, Sunday’s and Holiday’s.
  4. Radios must be kept at a low volume and only operated within the interior of the unit, so as not to disturb any other owners or guests. If there is a complaint, the use of the radio must be discontinued.
  5. Temporary storage of construction materials on the lanais may not exceed 30 days.
  6. Thorough clean up is required at the end of each day.
  7. Crush ALL cardboard before placing in the dumpster. This is to be only small boxes that have been broken down. ALL other constructional refuse is to be driven to the landfill near town (Kaunakakai). See Contractor’s Construction Letter.
  8. Under no circumstances is an Owner or Contractor to solicit the services of our working crew/staff during posted working hours.
  9. The Board has approved the following sanctions:
    • 1st offense $250
    • 2nd offense $500
  10. Should you hire a contractor who has violated the house by-laws, we will disclose the history of his infractions, if known, when we send you the Board’s stamp of approval to begin your renovation. You may then hire him/her with an educated risk. Subsequent violations made by this same Contractor will result in a fine of $250 for the 1st offense while on your job with subsequent fines imposed as deemed necessary. It is the responsibility of the Homeowner to inform their Contractor of these rules and provide him/her with a copy of the Contractor’s Letter from this site. Any violations made by the Contractor will be the financial burden of the Homeowner.Thank you in advance for your compliance,
    Your Kepuhi Beach Resort Board

    Fines for Failure to Comply with Association Renovation Rules

    If a Homeowner does not properly request permission from the Board, in writing, to renovate or make changes to their unit (i.e., adding a washer/dryer, changing/modifying cabinets, flooring, electrical, plumbing – ANYTHING except for painting or window coverings), there will be NO WARNING LETTER and they will be fined $250 immediately. Offending Owner’s will be ordered to cease work immediately and may not resume again until the Board has received the renovation plans and the Board responded with an approval letter. A Homeowner must receive approval IN WRITING by the Board before any work ensues. Ignorance is not an excuse.

    If an Owner finishes their renovation without making the Board aware of their plans and obtaining written approval from the Board, they will be fined $500, payable immediately or legal procedures will be initiated. This will be a no tolerance policy. Upon notifying the Board of your wishes to renovate, a Board Member will email letters to you and your Contractor with additional rules to follow.

    Had the Owner gone through proper channels, they would automatically have received a copy of the above policy. These policies have been made public at Homeowner’s Meetings and reiterated in the typed minutes of the Homeowner’s Meetings and mailed to all Owners.

    Be sure to submit your proposed project in writing (via email or mail) to Dale Matlock to get board approval before you remodel. A Homeowner must request permission in writing to renovate or make changes to their unit (i.e., adding a washer/dryer, changing/modifying cabinets, flooring, electrical, plumbing – ANYTHING, except for painting or window coverings). Failure to comply will result in a $250 fine. Offending Owner’s will be ordered to cease work immediately and may not resume work until the Board has received the renovation plans and has responded with an approval – in writing. Ignorance is not an excuse.
