Kauai's Kuhio Highway north of Hanalei town has opened after being closed for over a year due to landslides from April 2018 rains. After the rains residents of the immediate area and other permit holders (usually construction workers) could only drive on the highway during 3 set times of the day. North shore Kauai residents had to drive during these convoy times to get to work or school. Although inconvenient to most, many local residents relished the quietness, the lack of people and Waniha & Haena returning to a 1970s type era. The north shore Kauai ocean reefs had a break as well and they flourished. Photo: Haena Locals.The highway is now reopened but with rules. Kauai island residents may drive north of Hanalei without restrictions but visitors must apply and obtain a permit or take...

Hanalei Valley Taro Fields on Kauai  The taro fields are beautiful and fun to see, especially from the main road on the hill in Princeville above the fields. This photo, taken at a recent visit, is a fond memory, especially in light of the devastating rains and flooding that occurrred recently in the area closing roads, damaging houses, causing mudslides and decimating the taro fields. Reportedly as much as 28 inches of rain may have fallen in the area (I heard varying reports, some stating more than that) in a 24-hour period in mid-April.

Hanalei Pier Sunset  While not as dramatic as watching the sunset from the St. Regis in Princeville, a sunset over Hanalei Bay from the pier is pretty extaordinary. We enjoyed this view, on a Thursday ironically, 2 weeks ago just before heading to dinner at a favorite restaurant Bar Acuda in Hanalei, sitting at the Chef's Table by the kitchen. Obviously lots of others had the same idea - the sunset, that is - and the beach was lined with people, cameras in hand to enjoy the last few minutes of sun and the changing sky over the water and the famous mountain, Bali Hai (also known as Makana Mountain), from the popular movie South Pacific. Still trying to keep a little of that Aloha Spirit but it's fading fast just barely a week after getting home!

Hanalei Farmer's Market Flowers   A visit to the "garden isle" of Kaua'i is always treat. We've been back amost a week and it seems so long ago! We visited the Hanalei Farmer's Market on a rainy cloudy morning to stock up on some fresh produce. I spied this collection of local flowers and had to snap a photo. They certainly brightened my morning!

Despite many a heavy heart, it was a beautiful day on the Garden Island as an estimated 6,500 people gathered along the beach at Hanalei Bay. Everyone was there to pay tribute to their hometown hero, Andy Irons. The Kauai-born 3x world champion surfer passed on Nov. 2, 2010 on his way home to Kauai. One amazing thing I've discovered about the people on Kauai is that they rally in times of need. When someone experiences a tragedy here, the community comes to their aid, helping in any way they can. It was evident in the weeks that followed Andy's passing. Local residents showed their love by painting surfboards with messages of support. The road was lined with them along with signs and flowers. A huge collage of photos (see below) displayed childhood images, surf competitions, wedding pic...

Kauai has long been known for its appeal to movie makers. The backdrop for many a film in the past, the island saw a quiet spell after “Tropic Thunder” was produced here three years ago. Things changed this spring when George Clooney arrived for the filming of “The Descendants.” Soon after crews wrapped up, Adam Sandler arrived to film “Just Go With It.” And, in June, the island welcomed Johnny Depp as he arrived with crews to film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” “...constant marketing and staying in touch and establishing relationships with film executives throughout the years has helped to keep Kaua`i on Hollywood’s radar,” said Art Umezu, film commissioner in the county Office of Economic Development. And of course, all this has a positive effect on Kauai’s economy. In...

Aloha, It comes as no surprise to those of us who enjoy Hanalei Bay and the adjacent beaches on a daily basis : Dr. Beach voted Hanalei Beach as the best in the US! This is from today's Yahoo news page ------------‘Dr. Beach' picks Hanalei Bay nation's No. 1 beach By JAYMES SONG, Associated Press Writer Jaymes Song, Associated Press Writer Fri May 22, 7:12 am ET HANALEI, Hawaii - If life is a beach, Hanalei Bay must be heaven. This remote, two-mile crescent-shaped beach on Kauai where the emerald mountains meet the sparkling sea was selected No. 1 on "Dr. Beach" Stephen P.

Several oceanfront homes have been on the market along Kauai’s popular north shore anywhere from 78 to 1,791 days. Between Hanalei and Haena, about a dozen homes are now on the market. The north shore is favored by many for its lush hillsides and beautiful beaches. However, there’s only so much oceanfront and now is a good time to take a look at what’s around. Here’s some info on the latest listings currently on the Kauai Multiple Listing Service: MLS #220831, asking price $12,500,000 4 bedrooms/4 baths in Hanalei (approx. 3807 SF of living space on approx. 1.11 acres of land) DOM = 78 MLS #219555, asking price $2,900,000 4 bedrooms/4 baths (approx. 2106 SF of living space on approx. 11,950 SF of land) DOM = 123 MLS #218622, asking price $3,400,000 2 bedroom/2 bath (approx. 1373 SF of l...

When talking about Kauai real estate, it’s important to keep in mind that the island of Kauai is divided into 5 districts. Many people are drawn to Hanalei and why not? Great views, beautiful ocean, great surf, wonderful people, and more. However, when talking about Hanalei, keep in mind that the Hanalei “district” is one of those 5 districts and it covers the area from Kilauea to Haena. So, when you’re looking at property and it says “Hanalei district” that doesn't necessarily mean the home (condo or land) is in the “town” of Hanalei. Now that we’ve cleared that up... In looking at the MLS sales statistics posted for October 2008, they indicate that the median price for single-family residential homes in the Hanalei district increased 42.37% between October 2007 (when it was $737,500) ...

Aloha, It's pouring down rain today so it's a perfect opportunity to get online and give you an update on single-family homes currently on the market between Hanalei and Haena. For those of you who love Kauai's north shore, these two favorite communities (with Wainiha tucked in between) currently offer 30 single-family homes on the market. Since my last blog post updating you on these Kauai properties, only two new listings have appeared. They are: MLS #217088 - a single-family home in Hanalei on Kuhio Hway. Days on market = 9, asking price is $1,259,000 MLS #217160 - an oceanfront home on Alealea Road, 3 bedrooms/3.5 baths. Days on market =1, asking price is $6.5 million. One home currently has an accepted offer on it. It's a 2 bedroom/2 bath home on Alamihi, close to the Hanalei Colon...

Aloha, The weather on the north shore of Kauai has been stellar lately. Those who love to kayak the Na Pali Coast still had the opportunity to do so last weekend before a swell moved in on Sunday afternoon. Then, just across the street from me, at what we call "Ike's beach" (for my famous golden retriever), near the Y camp (Camp Naue), neighbors - young and old alike - were out having a blast on their boogie boards, paddle boards and surf boards. Since my last posting on Sept. 8th, there are no new homes on the market between Hanalei and Haena. And, two of the homes that had been on the market are now off the market. #1. After 353 days on the market, the 5 bedroom/5bath Hanalei home at 5-5522 Kuhio Hwy, asking $3,395,000, was withdrawn on Sept. 15th. #2. After 549 days on the market, th...

Aloha, Those who know and love Kauai understand the world’s fascination with the north shore areas of Hanalei to Haena. Renowned for its surfing, beautiful bay and "Puff the Magic Dragon," Hanalei is enchanting. Wainiha and Haena offer fabulous mountain, valley and ocean views, not to mention a "get away from it all" lifestyle. Haena is also known for Mt, Makua aka Bali Hai in the movie " South Pacific." From simple plantation style homes to enticing oceanfront properties, here are the single-family homes currently on the market there as of September 8, 2008 (This information has been supplied by third parties and has not been independently verified by Hawaii Information Service and is, therefore, not guaranteed.

  Today, TGI reported that Quintus is selling their timeshare business to Celebrity Resorts at the Hanalei Bay Resort. The luxury 22-acre resort which sits right on Hanalei Bay ( you know the place where PUFF the Magic dragon lived by the sea,  And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah le) is a combination of timeshare and fee simple owners. Currently, the fee simple units range in price from 1B units for 700,000, all the way up to units for 1.5 million that have great Hanalei Bay views. The Bali Hai Restaurant and adjoining Happy Talk Lounge are rumored to be being sold to Jim Moffatt who owns and operates the successful Bar A Cuda, a tapas restaurant in downtown Hanalei. The acquisition comes nine months after 40 resort and restaurant workers were laid off when cash shor...

There's an interesting property for sale out in Haena that may provide a great investment opportunity for someone who values the North Shore of Kauai and doesn't mind a little bureaucratic challenge. This home in Haena is seven bedrooms and six and a half baths. It's currently 5 rentals. The main home rents for 3K a week and the other units for less. If a large group wants to rent the entire property , it rents for 5-7k a week. The property is currently assessed at 2.482 Million. While the listing is at 1.7M, i believe you could buy it for less if you are patient enough to deal with the bank. The owners are upside down and are clearly walking from the property. The challenge is the fact that the home is in the non VDA location and thusly, the owner must submit an application for a non c...
