Just got back from Kauai in July a warning to people staying at these properties on baby beach. The first night we were there the property known as Hale Ohana was burglarized and they stole the couples purse and wallet. Whoever it was walked right in the slider while they slept and stole what ever was sitting out on the counter. They had no driver's license -- nothing.
A few days later the house called Hale Kai was burglarized and again the same thing, they took there purse and wallets and again they had no driver's license---nothing. After the first night we slept with everything locked and closed up. You have no idea what it was like to not be able to keep your windows and doors open to get those amazing trade winds. When you retire take everything out of sight. My husband and I took everything to the bedroom that we slept in. We all kept warning new arrivees to be careful. There are warnings upon entry to lock when you leave, which of course we all did. There are warnings to use the safe for your valuables. But obviously there is a problem when you cannot retire to bed without having to lock down the entire house. There is no air conditioning in any of these houses. Also keep the porch lights on the Lanai when going to bed. There were a number of us that did this so it wasn't so dark.... I just wanted people to be aware of the problem they are having in the area Thanks
