A Hawaii 24-hour notice to cure is a notice served by a landlord to a tenant who has committed a nuisance on the rental property. The tenant is given twenty-four (24) hours to abate (cure) the nuisance. Failure to adhere to the 24-hour notice will lead to a 5-Day Notice to Quit for Nuisance being issued by the landlord. This second notice gives the tenant five (5) days to vacate the premises or risk an eviction suit. If the tenant remedies the situation within the initial twenty-four (24) hour period, the lease will continue.
Laws – § 666-3
Nuisance Defined (§ 712-1270):

- Importing, transferring, or selling fireworks (§ 132D-12(a)(1) or (3)).
- All offenses contained in Chapter 708, Part II.
5-Day Notice to Quit for Nuisance – This 5-Day Notice to Quit for Nuisance informs the tenant that they must vacate the property within five (5) days since they failed to remedy the issue within the twenty-four (24) hours they were originally given in the prior notice.
