Aloha, It seems like a long, long time since we were on Bora Bora but in truth, it's only been one very busy week. Tuesday found me driving over to PMRF in Kekaha to the "DV" (distinguished visitors) tent to watch the launch of a medium range ballistic missile target from the base and subsequent ...

Aloha, I'm back from Bora Bora and yes, we had a fabulous time. The overwater bungalows with the glass topped coffee table for fish watching were everything I dreamed they would be. We even swam under the bungalow ourselves and took each others picture through the glass top coffee table. The wedd...

Aloha, Yes, this update is a day or two short and I'll be a few dollars shorter when I get back from Bora Bora, but I am leaving tomorrow - Friday the 16th and decided I'd rather publish a couple of days shy of week's end than not at all. On to your update. Copyright 10/15/2009 by Hawaii Informat...

Aloha, Yes, I finally made it to the "new" St. Regis to check it out, and yes, I parked my own car. Thanks to those of you who told me you'd been there and that self park was still alive and well. I can only guess that the day I went the greeter at the entry gazebo had delusions of grandeur when ...

Aloha, I mentioned going by the new Princeville Hotel this week to take some pictures of the renovations but got no further than the entry gazebo. Seems all "self parking" has been eliminated due to the "St. Regis" status. You used to be able to self park as long as you didn't take any of the val...

Aloha, I've been enjoying Puhi this past week as we're housesitting / cat sitting for friends that own in Villas of Puali. Our friends are fortune to have a unit down at the end of the road, which makes for a good deal of privacy. What's so great about this complex, and others in the area, is the...

After closing approx. one year ago for renovations, the Princeville Hotel re-opened its doors Sept. 26th as the new St. Regis Princeville Resort. This afternoon (10/1/09) I had the distinct pleasure to attend the blessing/reception of the new St. Regis Princeville Resort. And, what an honor it wa...

Aloha, They finally finished up the sidewalks at the Cliffs and what a difference. It looks great. Renovation of buildings 7, 8 and 9 continues which means there'll be plenty of parking space for the next few weeks. It's pleasantly deserted while they do the work with only those people like mysel...

Aloha, We enjoyed another beautiful week in Paradise although they've been ripping out the sidewalks at the Cliffs Condos and pouring new ones which are ADA compliant. At the same time, they've finally reached my building to start the renovations of the timeshare units which, along with the heavy...

HAPPY TALK LOUNGE RE-OPENS: Many north shore residents (and visitors) were happy to hear that the "Happy Talk Lounge" re-opened at the Hanalei Bay Resort. A favorite spot for watching incredible sunsets and hearing great music (from Hawaiian night to Jazz night), the lounge is open once again off...

Aloha, This week has just flown by - maybe because it stated with completion of the Marathon last Sunday followed by two days of recovery. Nevertheless, here we are again, with a new update already. You'll see some new low pricing in Nihilani with the listing of yet another short sale. Here is yo...

Aloha, I have a better than average reason for being late with this weeks update: I participated in the Kauai Marathon Sunday and spent yesterday recovering from the 26.2 mile jaunt. Even though I walked the better part of it, it was still no easy task but I'll wait to talk more about this on an ...

Aloha, Although the first day of fall isn't until September 22, for all intents and purposes the summer selling season has come to an end with a whimper! Yes a whimper! Sure we had some sales but not nearly enough to even begin to consider this a hot summer season. Buyers continue to stand on the...

Aloha, It's been a relatively slow week which is reflected in the rather sparse condo update this week. There's been a few showings here and there but by and large, it seems like things have quieted down as we approach the end of summer. So much for a hot summer market! The reality is that the ma...

Aloha, We're seeing some movement in the market as those sellers who really want to sell are reducing to the point that buyers are seeing value. Also selling are the foreclosures and even some of the short sales, although it takes a patient buyer to stay in escrow until the end. Here is your upda...

Aloha, Here we are in the last month of Summer and real estate has held it's same sluggish pace. Most buyers feel that waiting can only benefit them, and to some degree, I have to agree. However, there are some properties that are so competatively priced that I'm really surprised they are not in ...

Aloha, It was another beautiful week in Paradise but not many buyers seem moved to want to jump into the market. While we do have some new escrows and one that went under contract, we have not seen the number of buyers expected what with the many great buys on the market. There's something for ev...
