Kauai Life With New COVID-19 Rules

First of all I hope this email finds you, and your family, healthy and that you continue to stay that way.

On Kauai the “plan” on how we are to move forward seems to have settled somewhat with the understanding that this new normal is subject to change.  As of this writing (Monday, March 30) the number of Kauai COVID-19 cases on Kauai holds steady at 12 and 204 for the entire state.  Kauai is the only island that has a curfew, no one can be out from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and last week KPD issued 4 citations to people not adhering to this rule.
The entire state is SIP (Sheltering In Place) and our Kauai Chief of Police took this a step further by having Road Check Points at random places.  I was stopped on Poipu Road right at the cross walk going from the Kiahuna Plantation to Little Fish.  They politely asked where I was going and when I told them they let me move along.  This last week I found it necessary to be out only 2 times on Real Estate business that could not be done at home.
Am I going crazy?  I kind of am a bit.  My business is people based and not seeing & interacting with people is driving me nuts.  I had a showing at one of my listings and I was practically doing cartwheels at being able show a property!!!!  I now know why dogs try to bolt when you answer the door, totally get it.

If you have any questions on what is happening here or if I can assist you with your property here let me know.  I’m more than happy to help or to take your phone call.

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay positive.  Live Aloha and practice social distancing by greeting others with Shaka’s not Shakes.

My Makahuena 1-301 Virtual Showing 

I took the opportunity to do a virtual walk through at the property I did the showing at last week.  I’m going to be doing more of these and will be sharing them on the internet when it’s appropriate.
This unit is very special in the respect that it’s only 1 of 2 units in the complex that has this floor plan.  A copy of the listing as it appears in our MLS is here: Makahuena #1-301


Heavy Rain Floods Kauai
Over the weekend we got pounded by a massive storm.  The East side and North shore were primarily impacted.  Debris pile up closed off the Wailua bridge and no traffic could make it through.  Wailua had 7.33 inches of rain inside of 24 hours.
The whole island was under a flash flood watch, some homes flooded, wastewater spill off into ocean waters, road closures and some street lights were out.  I was obviously home in Poipu Beach and I can say we weathered the storm very well here.
Here were the rainfall totals:
Lihu‘e Airport: 5.74 inches; 5.22 inches falling in the 12-hour period ending 10 a.m. Saturday;

Oma‘o: 2.02 inches; 1.54 inches in the 12-hour period;

Mt. Wai‘ale‘ale: 7.46 inches; 3.75 inches in the 12-hour period;

Princeville Airport: 6.72 inches; 6.38 inches in the 12-hour period;

Hanalei: 8.46 inches; 7.79 inches in the 12-hour period;

Kapahi: 6.81 inches; 6.09 inches in the 12-hour period.

Kukui Grove Cinema Closed For Good
I’m very sad to report that our only theatre, the Kukui Grove Cinema, will remain closed for good.  Consisting of 4 screens this is our only real movie house on island and my hubby and I loved going here for our date nights.
Kukui Grove Cinema closed on March 21 along with many other businesses but for our cinema it turned out to be the straw that broke the camels back.  According to the owners, who have been operating there for 35 years, they have been suffering weak attendance for several years with the rising popularity of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.
Did you know…Kauai at one time had over a dozen movie theatres???  Hard to imagine but at one time there were theaters in Kekaha, Waimea, Koloa, Kealia, Kapa‘a, Lihu‘e, Kalaheo and Hanapepe.

The historic Waimea Theatre is still in operation, showing movies mostly on weekends. It originally opened in 1938, but closed in 1972 and was converted into warehouse space, according to the Cinema Treasures website. The Waimea Theatre reopened in 1999 as a motion-picture exhibitor and community-performance and meeting space.
