A Gray Day on Kaua'i  Our first trip to Kaua'i back in 2011 was during a rainy time. Thankfully, it didn't keep us from exploring quite a bit, and there were plenty of sunny periods. I took this photo along the coast road north of Kapa'a on a rather gray day. It turned out looking like a black and white photo, which was actually kinda cool. Normally everything looks so green and lush and the water is a myriad of blues, and this was a strinking contrast.

Newly Listed Homes on Kahuna Road Kahuna Road is in Kapaa and loops around Kawaihau Road. I like Kahuna road because it’s a quiet road and there is a quiet stream along parts of it known to locals as Jonny Tex. To get to Kahuna road follow the main road up to Kapaa (Kawaihau road)  and up towards the Makaleha mountains. There are two ways to get there either make the first right on Kahuna road. Or travel until Kawaihau Road ends at the bridge and either head right or left. Parts of Kahuna road can have a similar feel to Wailua Homesteads or the North shore because of its isolation and wetness. Homes in the area seem to becoming more desired and therefore increasing their value. Right now there are 3 homes listed on Kahuna Road. Two of which have just been listed and two are listed over ...

Hoku Whole Foods is a Natural Food Store located on Lehua Street in Kapaa, Kauai. It is located just a few blocks from my office Kauai Dreams Realty and I go there almost every day. Really almost every day that I'm working. After all they sell organic dark chocolate bars. I don't/can't drink coffee, so the dark chocolate is my caffeine boost. Hoku Whole Foods is a very successful business. They cater to a health conscious clientele. There's a lot of us on Kauai. But I believe what makes Hoku Whole Foods so successful is their sincerity in their business and products. Hoku does not just stock their shelves with items that are marked "health" "low-fat" "natural" but they research and only order those foods that meet their standards. Because their current location is not in an expensive sh...

Collectible Designs Kauai, A Unique Boutique for Artists is conveniently located at 4-1435 Kuhio Hwy, Kapaa, Kauai, Hawaii in the Seto Building. If the address seems familiar, it is because it is located right next to my office Kauai Dreams Realty in Kapaa. The store specializes in handmade local Hawaiian wear & jewelry. Owner/Designer/Proprietor, Corinne Biledo, is often in the shop when not designing, sewing or jewelry making at her home in Kapaa, Kauai. She is well known on the island for her designs, making dresses from Polynesian Pareaus. I have to admit I have 7 of these dresses. It's a delight not having to go far to shop when I need a special dress for that baby luau or a present for an upcoming party. I encourage everyone to stop by when in Kapaa town.
