Princeville Kauai condo / house update for Mar 13th to Mar 19th

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sold on Kauai Realty RB-18142

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

It’s been somewhat dreary, overcast and cool this past week – with occasional warm periods. If you’ve been here, you know the weather changes in a heartbeat. It’s the time of year when it’s easiest to tell locals from visitors. You’ll see some people with sweaters zipped up, wearing Uggs with their jeans while those right next to them are in tank tops, shorts and slippers. The contrast is amusing.

Of course, I’m the group with the jeans and Uggs. Having been here since ’91 my blood is thinner than most, and as one of my friends who has been here since 2013 mentioned, it doesn’t take long for that to happen – as she sat bundled up in jacket, jeans and Uggs, sipping hot coco.

As for real estate, we are at 68 sales as of today Sunday, as we head towards the goal of 88. There was some activity this past week in both houses and condos. We’ll just have to wait and see if it’s enough!

If you’re in Princeville and want to stay up to date with events, meetings etc the Princeville community website is the place to go. Also, once you’re a Princeville property owner, you can log in and created a password for greater access to the website.

If you’re a water person, there was an interesting article in today’s Garden Island about water pollution. Surfrider’s Blue Water Task Force tests water samples throughout the Island. Their data from the past seven years of sampling is available online at, along with an interactive map of the sampling locations. It’s a great organization providing excellent information.

That’s it for this week. Still overcast, cool and cloudy. Another day for jeans and a sweater. Currently, the temperature is 72 – I guess if you’re on the Mainland you could just call us wimps in Paradise.

Questions? You know who to ask for the facts before buying or selling.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,
