What is fractional homeownership? Is it the same as a timeshare?

Fractional ownership is a flexible and convenient way to buy luxury real estate in Kaua‘i. Unlike a timeshare, each residential interest in a fractional ownership agreement represents an undivided deeded real estate purchase—identical to any deeded real estate acquisition. Owning fractional real estate allows you to retain it forever, bequeath to heirs, gift or resell in the future and realize any appreciation.

Fractional ownership guarantees you a minimum amount of vacation time in your home every year with additional vacations available based on availability. Whether owning Fractional or Whole Ownership, rest assured Timbers Resorts’ experienced staff takes care of everything from maintenance and housekeeping to landscape and upkeep. And, as an Owner you’ll have full access to owner privileges and amenities of Timbers Kaua‘i and Hokuala.

What do I need to know about living in Kaua‘i?

Kaua‘i is the fourth largest Hawaiian island, and often referred to as the Garden Isle because of the lush rain forests that cover the land. There are three major regions—the North Shore including Princeville and Hanalei, the East Shore (often called the “Coconut Coast”) including Kapa’a and Lihue (where Timbers Kaua‘i is located), and the South Shore including Koloa, Poipu and Waimea. 

Kapa’a, on the “Coconut Coast,” is the island’s largest town, followed by Lihue, which is also where the airport is located. The Lihue airport offers direct flights from the Mainland and Canada along with Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii Island, making it convenient for Owners to access their Garden Island home.

There are many different micro-climates on the island, depending on where you live. Our home in Lihue tends to stay sunny and relatively dry almost all year round.

I would like to use this as an investment property. Can I rent out my home when I’m not there?

Yes! For added convenience, Timbers Kaua‘i operates a formal Rental Program that carefully screens prospective renters on behalf of our owners. In addition, Timbers Kaua‘i will handle the entire rental transaction on your behalf. The rental process is completely effortless for Owners.
