After lengthy trial, nudists evicted from Nuuanu rental home

NUUANU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After a months-long dispute over naked parties at a Nuuanu rental home, a judge has decided the controversial tenants will be evicted.

Neighbors have dealt with all manner of chaos at the home, from parties like Naked Taco Tuesday to a website called "ipartynaked" to a mysterious car fire to bizarre screams and sounds.

Neighbor David Brown, a retired military chaplain, says he's called police multiple times.

"After the police left, the music went back on and then very strange animal noises, moaning like wolf howling sounds," he said, describing one of the nights he called police.

Sources have told Hawaii News Now police are also investigating allegations of criminal activity at the home, but have made no arrests.

Tenant Amy Highmoor, meanwhile, says the property manager and neighbors are retaliating against them because of their alternative lifestyle and for her complaints about the condition of the home.

"I've been brutally harassed like brutally harassed where I'm so scared that I can't sleep at night," she said.

An attorney for property manager, Sakuma Realty, says the home was an illegal business and advertised online, which the renters denied.

"It's just a website that I decide that I could have to have people come together," said Brent Thomas who lives at the home.

In the end, after a month of hearings, the judge sided with property managers and neighbors, granting the eviction because of lease violations, multiple disturbances and running a business out of the home.

"'I'm a naturalist. This is my religion and I have a right to be nude. I am not offensive," said Highmoor.

Brown countered, "The ruling was in favor of the plaintiff. I believe good for my family, our neighborhood. So we are very pleased with the ruling."

Lawyers from both sides will work out a date for the tenants to move out.
