Is that Santa sneaking off with the Woody?

Woody heads to the “spa”.

With the holiday season upon us, the Bali Hai elves sent the Woody “Woody” into the shop to gear up for its busiest season of the year.  We eagerly anticipate a speedy return to service.

As the iconic symbol of the ultimate surf town, Woody plays a valuable role in welcoming everyone to Hanalei.  But it’s most important role is one even more valuable to the heart of Hanalei – soliciting donations for Kauai’s Food Bank.

In a year and a season of much abundance, let us all be aware of those in less fortunate circumstances. ‘Tis the season of giving, so please help Woody have a successful season by giving back to the Kauai community!

Donations can still be accepted in Woody’s absence. Please stop by our office to learn more about the Woody, the Kauai Independent Food Bank, Kauai Real Estate, Hanalei Vacation Rentals, or just to talk story for a moment!

Friday, December 5, 2014 is the opening night for the 18th Annual Festival of Lights at the Historic County Building.

Head to Lihue this holiday season and celebrate 40 years of Christmas folk art by visiting Festival of Lights. It’s an amazing visual history of turning “trash” into treasure.

From trash to treasure – a beautiful starfish. Photo courtesy of Festival of Lights.

Josie Chansky “Auntie Josie” was a creative genius and began turning trash into treasure many decades ago. She could create anything out of soda cans, bottle caps and even Styrofoam cups! For over 40 years during the holiday season, many generations of families and children would visit the Chansky home, which was lit up from ground to rooftop, to view her crafty holiday creations.  There were many holiday favorites, with one of the standouts a Christmas tree made of 7,500 green toothpicks!

Auntie Josie’s husband passed away in 1996, which made it difficult to continue their family tradition.  She decided to sell her decorations.  Elizabeth Freeman bought everything she could and donated it to the County of Kauai. In 1997, the Festival of Lights was born and it has become a much loved and anticipated tradition. Elizabeth is now the Festival’s Art Director.

Recognize the cans this beautiful flower came from? Photo courtesy of Ron Rosen.

For the 3rd Quarter of 2014, Kauai’s real estate activity has shown increasing sales compared to 2013 statistics in both residential and vacant land, while condo sales slightly decreased by 4%. Compared to last quarter’s statistics, residential homes show a slight increase in overall sales, while condos and vacant land activity have moderately slowed down.

When analyzing  the median sale price, the overall market has risen compared to last year, with condos experiencing the highest rise in price at 15%. If comparing this quarter’s number to last quarter’s, residential homes and vacant land have marginally decreased in price. As for condos, although the number of sales have decreased, they also saw  the highest increase in median price (10%).

Here on the north shore we’ve seen an increase in the overall number of sales compared to last year with land sales showing the most activity. Residential sales increased by 12% in the median sale price, while both condos and vacant land slightly decreased .

Contrary  to the overall decrease in condos sales on Kauai compared to last quarter, the north shore condo sales saw an increase by 7%. However both residential and vacant land sales moderately declined, while the median price has decreased in all sectors by approximately 2%.

Not included in these statistics are several notable transactions that achieved national and international press. Early 4th sales momentum is building and we are hopeful to end the year strong.
