Kauai Real Estate Update
SOLD! I represented a Buyer in their successful purchase of a condo in Princeville and last week we closed escrow on this 2 bedroom 2 bath condominium. Located at the Alii Kai Resort in Princeville this unit needs a lot of TLC but my Buyers got it for a great price and below market value.

Southwest Airlines Is Coming To Hawaii!

The long awaited and eagerly anticipated news of Southwest Airlines coming to Hawaii is here at long last. It’s been a headline feature on our nightly news, our newspapers and all over our social media.

This is especially good news for Kauai, the West Coast of the U.S. is the where the majority of our tourism and real estate investors are from. With Southwest having such a loyal fan base on the West Coast this will be a boom to consumers and those of us that live here. Already headlines are speculating about lower airfares. Hawaiian Airlines issued a statement that they welcome competition and are no stranger to it. We’ll see. Southwest said that they are evaluating interisland travel and with Hawaiian Airlines being pretty much our only interisland airline this is huge. Southwest excels at these short little jumps and built quite an airline on this.

Southwest Airlines said that they will begin service in late 2018 or early 2019 and that they would fly to Oahu and Maui. It’s possible, they stated, that they would do their initial launch to include all four major islands. For pricing all I’ve seen is they have said they would at least be in line with what the other carriers are offering.

This is bullish news for Kauai as it opens the West Coast point of entry door even wider. This is good news for our tourism and our real estate market.

Las Vegas To Receive Two Mile Long Lei

The “Lei of Aloha” which measure two miles in length will be on it’s way to Las Vegas along with representative’s from our islands.
The lei was woven in pieces by volunteers from Kauai, Maui, Kona and Oahu, it was joined together with a blessing last Wednesday in Honolulu. Cyrila Pycha, who is part owner of RE/MAX on the north shore of Kauai, was the person in charge of Kauai’s part being done! She will be traveling to Las Vegas, along with Ron Panzo and Colleen Nomura, to deliver the lei. I’m so proud to have RE/MAX a part of this special project. Wilcox Hospital’s rehabilitation department also contributed by having their volunteers weaving a part of the lei.
“Lei of Aloha For World Peace” was started in 2015 by Ron Panzo here on Kauai. The first lei was a mile long and it was delivered to the Paris explosion site in 2015.
A big aloha to Hawaiian Airlines for their donating four airfares to Las Vegas (one for each island) and one for the Lei as well. Accommodations for our representatives and their helpers are being provided by the California Hotel and Casino.  Las Vegas has long been a major travel destination for the Hawaiian residents and is considered the “9th Hawaiian Island” by many.

Kauai Beer Company To Expand
Kauai Beer Co. is converting its 4,000-square-foot storage-and-office building in Lihue into a beer garden and restaurant.  The current restaurant seats 130 customers and employs 30. With the expansion they will be able to have music and dancing along with more seating and bigger menu.
The Kauai Beer Company opened in 2013 and in addition to the expansion they are looking at adding new flavors and doubling their operations which will allow them to have other places sell their beer. For more information on this Kauai homegrown gem go to Kauai Beer Company.

Verde’s Open In Lihue!
I have been a big fan of Verde’s Restaurant which opened their first location in Kapaa some years ago. When I just had to have some real good Mexican food my husband and I would make the 45 minute trek to Kapaa.

They recently opened their second location, which is located in Lihue at the new Safeway shopping center.   This location is optimal as it’s on the corner of a building, the bar area is huge and they have about 3 times the seating. The atmosphere was fun and the aesthetic was very clean, airy and bright. I had the stacked chicken enchilada and my husband had a quesadilla, both were delicious. Service was great and our waitress told us that they are going to be opening up a third location in Hanalei but that is sometime down the road and where she didn’t say.

I would highly recommended Verde’s and I will definitely be back. Below are some photos of the restaurant.
