Aloha from Princeville Kauai, Hope everyone had a fun Halloween. Can you believe Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away? This past week was a mixed bag, with a some new listings, new escrows and one sale in the condo department. There was even a new escrow and sale in single family homes. October only posted 75 sales (so far) compared to 80 last October. It is possible there might be a few more last minute postings. For November, the number to beat is 79. Here is your update for this past week: NEW LISTINGS 278421 CND A 1 4-5-4-5-27-2 FS $255,000 Hale Honu #1B 1,085 #1B 3/1.01 278341 CND A 4 4-5-4-5-23-38 FS $525,000 Plantation A#1012 1,153 #1012 2/2.00 278369 CND A 3 4-5-4-12-11-49 FS $1,295,000 Puu Poa #407 1,784 #407 2/2.00 BACK ON THE MARKET 275836 CND A 94 4-5-4-5-23-6 FS $499...

Aloha, The weather continues to be unseasonably hot and muggy here in Princeville Kauai leaving the beach the only place to be. I’ve been here since 91 – hot and muggy days like we’ve had the last few weeks used to occur on an occasional basis, with the tradewinds always making an appearance to cool everyone off. Not so much this year! Real estate has slowed a bit which is typical at the start of the school year and as we head into fall. Still, there are a couple of new listings and one sale for condos, as well as a home that went into escrow and one that sold. Take a look: NEW LISTINGS 277247 CND A 1 4-5-4-5-18-37 FS $399,990 Puamana #10C 1,298 #10C 2/2.00 278118 CND A 5 4-5-4-5-12-3 FS $399,999 Sealodge Ii #F3 556 #F3 1/1.00 SALES 272508 CND S 131 4-5-4-12-8-27 FS $673,000 Pali Ke Kua...

Aloha, It’s overcast, windy and rainy in Princeviile Kauai today as tropical storm Ana passes by to the South. Thank goodness we dodged another bullet. It’s been relatively quiet here other than that, as it seems many of the visitors left for greener pastures. Despite the weather, there was one condo sale and three homes went into escrow.

Aloha, I hate to sound like a broken record – well, not really – but yet another sunny, hot and humid week in Princeviile Kauai has gone by. Yes, another great beach week. Also a good snorkel week (at least from what I can see from my Princeville condo) as the ocean continues to be like one huge bathtub! If you didn’t want to move to Kauai before, it should be at the top of your “to-do” list if you’ve been spending time here the last few weeks. Some of our best weather seems to be in August / September and this year is no exception. I’ve heard complaints that it’s just w–a–y too humid (which it is as trades have been nonexistent to light) but I still love it. I’m fortunate, with a front and back lanai, to have steady breeze coming through no matter how light the trades. Although I love ...

Aloha, We’re had another amazing week of calm waters (at least as seen from my Princeville condo) light trades, sunshine and humidity. It’s a perfect time to go to Anini and find a cool spot to lay in the water. The other option is air conditioning! Some people are surprised to learn our warmest temps are in August and September. We love it though – gives us a perfect excuse for a beach day. As for real estate, it was a relatively quiet week with one escrow in homes and two closings.

Aloha, This past week in Princeville Kauai has been simply beautiful with sunshine and blue skies – and quite a bit of high temps and humidity. That’s very easily remedied here by a trip to the beach. It seems buyers may have been there enjoying the holiday week as there was only one new escrows in condos. We did see some new listings and a couple of properties move closer to closing.

Aloha, Happy Labor Day Weekend from Princeville Kauai ! I hope you are out enjoying the magnificent weather – no matter where you are. Here on Kauai Mother Nature is serving up blue skies and very warm humid weather, perfect for a weekend at the beach. That’s where we’ll be headed tomorrow to celebrate with everyone else. If you are familiar with Kauai, you know there are a multitude of beaches to choose from, no matter what side of the Island you’re exploring. Some of my favorites on the North Shore are Anini, Kalihiwai and Hanalei – or we may decide to hike down from Princeville to the Sealodge beach or hike down from the Cliffs to check out the turtles. This was one of the few weeks where there were no new listings in either houses or condos. However, there were several sales and new...

Aloha, As you may have guessed by now, I’m traveling and am currently in Austria. We were in Venice today and wanted to take one of the horse drawn carriage rides that we saw throughout the Plaza. Since the ride was 40 minutes long, we had plenty of opportunity to chat with the driver. He answered all our questions about the history of various building then said he had a question of his own. It was quite amusing that upon learning that we were from Hawaii, he asked if it was true that the favorite food in Hawaii was canned meat! We chuckled to ourselves and told him he must be talking about Spam! Yes, Hawaii’s love affair with Spam has apparently traveled all the way to Vienna! We assured him that while Spam was quite popular it was not the only meat available. He actually seemed reliev...

Aloha, I’m happy to report that Kauai did not suffer any major damage due to the two reported hurricanes that were in the area. Fortunately, Iselle hit the Big island as a tropical storm instead of a hurricane and Julio went North of the Islands. Civil defense issued flash flood warnings but it’s much better news than having a hurricane on your doorstep. Despite the trepidation over the possibility of two hurricanes hitting the Islands, there were still some buyers willing to brave the weather. Although there were no new condo escrows, there were several new listings and closings. Homes did very well with two properties going into escrow.
