HAWAII BECKONS. ALWAYS. PERHAPS NOW MORE THAN EVER.
by Munro Murdock (Broker/Owner, Love Hawaii Villas)
Aloha! Like most travel destinations around the world, Hawaii has also been adversely affected as a result of the COVID-19 global health pandemic. Fortunately, Hawaii officials were able to keep the case counts very low and we are certainly grateful that Hawaii is considered one of the safest places in America, in terms of very low case counts and infection rates. Hawaii leaders are now crafting a strategy for the re-opening of outside visitor travel to Hawaii, which is currently under development and review. Inter-island travel for residents of the Hawaiian Islands, is resuming on June 16th, with no quarantine restrictions.

LOVE HAWAII VILLAS IN THE NEWS (COVID-19 RELATED)
We have been tirelessly advocating in Hawaii for the reopening of local businesses, inter-island travel, and of course, mainland and foreign travel to Hawaii. It has not been easy for Hawaii tourism to be all but shutdown for months on end and unfortunately some businesses will NOT be surviving this economic crisis. We consider ourselves fortunate to have mitigated risks as well as we could so that we cann continue to provide a much-needed service for our Owners and Guests. We are blessed, even in the midst of this time of great difficulty and global uncertainty.
The reopening of tourism and vacation rentals, specifically, has become somewhat of a controversial topic in Hawaii. We are hopeful that Hawaii’s elected officials will soon release a safe and common-sense game plan for the resuming of global visitor travel to Hawaii. The State of Hawaii is not well-positioned for an extended period of months with no real tourism to speak of.
