Aloha from Princeville Kauai,It was another busy week with one new escrow and five condo sales. We finally got some sunshine the last couple of days, along with a lengthy backup on Friday and Saturday on the highway between Princeville and Kalihiwai, due to to a mudslide.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,This has been one cold winter, at least by Kauai standards. We’ve had a week of windy, cloudy, cool days, with occasional rain, that has caused most locals to dig into their closets for their sweatshirts, jackets, jeans and even Uggs! While We’re all bundled up, visitors are happy to wear their shorts and tiny tank tops. As they say, it’s all a matter of perception and point of reference! Yes, the thermometer does say 70 degrees but it’s a cold 70!Real estate was a bit on the cool side also, with just one new condo listing, and two new escrows and sales. Surprisingly, that was it! No price changes, back on the market or anything else. Here is your update:NEW LISTINGS615784 CND A 1 $650,000 4-5-4-5-18-47 FS PUAMANA #13C 1,298 sqft 2 2.00Contingent Sales614946...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!We have finally seen some whale activity, something we’ve been missing up to this point in time. Seems like their numbers and activity are down, at least up here on the North Shore. We even managed to get a glimpse of some juvenile Nene before Mom and Dad took them out of sight.While I’m on the subject of Nene, apparently many people, especially tourists, do not know they are an endangered species, perhaps because Kauai is blessed with a healthy population. The Nene, which is the State Bird, was almost driven to extinction, dwindling down to about 30 birds in the 1950′s.As an endangered species, they fall under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 which prohibits any action “significantly impacting essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding, or...

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!I’m sure by now everyone knows that it was human error that caused the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to send a cell phone notice to Hawaii residents that a ballistic missile was heading our way. Thankfully, it was a false alarm, but I suspect heads will roll when all is said and done. It is a reminder that tomorrow is not guaranteed and to live each day to your fullest.On a much happier note, real estate is off to a good start for the year with activity in both condos and houses.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!It’s been another blustery week, with winds, clouds, rain and high surf reminding us it really is winter here! At least we don’t have the plunging temperatures. It’s the best time of year to separate visitors from locals, as one is clothed in tank tops, shorts, and slippers while the others have broken out their jeans and sweatshirts.Buyers were out and about shopping for real estate bargains possibly fueled by a Black Friday and Cyber Monday mindset. There were a couple of new escrows and several closings.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai!Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday! The weather this past week made me feel sorry for our visitors, at least those here on the North Shore. Although today is sporting more sunshine and no rain (so far) such was not the case last week. We had very gusty winds of 30+ mph, intermittent driving rain, rough seas along with cooler temps (60 at night) and overall, bad snorkeling weather!While I enjoy the wild winds and ocean, with albatross soaring above and Nene grazing out front, I could see from visitors expressions that what Mother Nature dished out isn’t what they expected. Nevertheless, it is paradise, and the palms whipping about in the wind and big surf are a visual delight if not user-friendly.As you might expect for a hol...
