For Buyers:

Welcome to the Enchanted Lake community! We hope you enjoy life on the lake and take part in annual ELRA activities like the 4th of July on the lake picnic & fireworks viewing, the Christmas Boat Parade, and our annual meeting which usually takes place in October.  Please subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep informed of events and information regarding the lake.

Enchanted Lake is privately owned by the Enchanted Lake Residents Association (ELRA).

The Declaration of Protective Provisions, dated March 12, 1962, and its subsequent supplements are part of the title documents pertaining to property abutting Enchanted Lake, and these documents establish maintenance assessments that must be paid by owners of most homes abutting the lake.  Those owners are automatically granted membership in ELRA.

Annual Maintenance Assessments are currently set at $300 and cover liability insurance for the lake, cleanups, and other items undertaken to keep the lake clean and healthy. There are financial penalties if the assessments are not paid when due.  In some instances, special assessments may also be established.  A special assessment of $250 has been declared for the past three years to cover the extraordinary expenses incurred for clean-ups and legal expenses associated with damages by a hillside developer.

The maintenance assessments are due and payable on July 1 of every year (the bill will be mailed to you). Any past due maintenance assessments and penalties due from the seller should be paid previous to close of escrow or upon closing. You or your realtor can request a statement from our administrative assistant, Melody Spencer, email your request or phone 520-4836 (please call during regular office hours).

Boats, barges and kayaks that are used on the lake must be registered with ELRA and have an ELRA sticker. The stickers must be renewed each year. The boat registration form is included with your annual bill for the lake maintenance fee. The registration fees are:

  • $10   Kayaks, non-motorized watercraft (no fee for standup paddleboards)
  • $25   Barges and powerboats (you must provide evidence of insurance)

You can find the lake use rules, bylaws, newsletters and meetings, as well as a wealth of other information about Enchanted Lake on this website.

ELRA board members are your neighbors, and we encourage you to reach out to them if you have any questions or concerns about the lake.

Aloha!

For Sellers:

If you are selling a single-family residential home/lot, you must provide ELRA with a copy of your land survey prior to closing. If there are encroachments onto Enchanted Lake, an encroachment agreement must be completed ($800 fee for new agreements, or $200 transfer fee for change of owners if an agreement is already in place). Please allow at least three business days for the needed signatures on the encroachment agreement by two officers of the ELRA board. Click for a copy of the encroachment agreement.

Kukilakila owners do not provide a land survey.

Any past due maintenance assessments and penalties can be paid previous to close of escrow or upon closing. You or your realtor can request a statement from our administrative assistant, Melody Spencer, email your request or phone 520-4836 (please call during regular office hours).
