Q: How do I work the gas grill?
To use the gas grills, first open the red valve found on the gas supply line (several inches above the ground near the BBQ) by aligning the red valve with the gas supply pipe. Then open the small stainless steel door found on the concrete pillar and twist the timer clockwise to a time greater than your expected cooking time (such as all the way). With the cover closed, turn all the burners on full (red line in the 9 o’clock position). Then immediately press the igniter button (found to the left of the burner control knobs). You will hear a clicking sound. Continue holding down the ignition button until you hear the burners ignite. If the burners do not ignite within around 7 seconds, let go of the igniter button and open the door to allow the gas to dissipate. Check that the valve is open and the timer is turned on clockwise. Try again. If the BBQ still doesn’t ignite call Security for assistance (808.926.1924). Be sure to brush off the grill after use (wire brushes are found inside the cabinet). If you have any difficulties, please call Security at 808.926.1924.

Q: Can I smoke in my apartment?
Technically, yes, you can smoke in your apartment. However, the House Rules stipulate that your smoke must not enter other apartments where it would bother your neighbors. Experience teaches us that to avoid having smoke bother you neighbors when smoking in your apartment, you would need to take, at least, the following steps:
- Install a door sweep.
- Keep your windows closed when smoking and until your apartment is aired out.
- Turn on your bathroom fan to draw the air out the vent stack.
- Use one or more air purifiers to filter your room air and try to exhale your smoke into the filter intake.
If you apply these measures, you may be able to get by smoking in your unit without complaints from your neighbors. However, if it appears that it is impossible to smoke in your apartment without bothering your neighbors, then you will need to smoke outside.
Q: Where can I smoke?
You can smoke in your unit* or in one of the two designated outdoor smoking areas.
The outdoor smoking areas are:
- Under the Hau tree arbor at the three tables on the Paoakalani side of the property between the pool and the Queen Tower.
- At the seating and table on the Ala Wai Blvd side of the pool pavilion or behind the pool pavilion.
*You can smoke in your unit as long as the smoke does not enter other units and disturb other residents. We have found that when smokers smoke with their windows open, it often does result in complaints from neighbors either above, below or to the side. Therefore, it is suggested that you smoke outside as much as possible, or when smoking in your unit, you close the windows and turn on the bathroom fan.
If you anticipate smoking in your unit on a regular basis, you may wish to consider installing an under-door seal (sometimes called a “door sweep”, “skirt”, “brush” or “excluder”). Also please consider using a personal air filter such as a “Smoke Buddy” and one or more HEPA air filter(s).
Unwanted smoke entering other units is the number-one complaint at the Liliuokalani Gardens and is prohibited under our House Rules.

Q: What do I do if I recieved a Citation with a Fine?
If you have received a Citation with a Fine, it would be due to a lack of action or response to earlier warnings and citations delivered due to repeated violation of a particular House Rule.
It’s not always easy to coexist harmoniously in a densely populated condominium community, but we ask all our residents to try. Sometimes compromise is necessary to get along with one’s neighbors in an environment such as ours. If you have received a fine, it may be because we see no evidence that you are making a genuine, good-faith effort to abide by our House Rules and/or get along with your neighbors.
If you are confused by the fine, or feel that you have been unjustly fined, you may call the Resident Manager’s office at 808.926.3636 to discuss the matter.
Payment of all fines is due within 7 days. You can drop off a check made out to the “Liliuokalani Gardens AOAO” to the Resident Manager’s office or mail the check to the Resident Manager’s office, or just pay online through this website (go to “Pay Bills” then “Other”).
Fines to tenants that are not paid within 7 days are sent to the responsible property management company or unit owner (landlord) for payment. Fines levied upon owners that are not paid with 7 days will be followed up with a reminder and if still not paid, could be subject to additional fines and further action.
Q: I received a Citation from the Security team, what do I need to do?
If one of the Security Watchmen left a citation on your door or your vehicle, it is likely because you violated some House Rule. You should be sure that you familiarize yourself with our House Rules. You can download a copy of the House Rules from the website Resource Center. The only response required of you to a warning citation is to understand what the violation was, and make your best effort to avoid such violations in the future. Citations are entered into the Security log. Repeat violations of the House Rules subject the resident to the possibility of fines.
If you recieve a citation that includes a fine, it would most likely be because you have previously received a previous warning, or the Security Watchman feels that you are knowingly disregarding the rules and not making a good-faith effort to abide by them.
