The county planning commission is considering a zoning change for future planning that will preserve Agricultural lands between Princeville phase I and the Kalihiwai river. If you have an opinion one way or the other, for more resort development or for less resort development near your home this Tuesday and Thursday is the best and most effective time you can spend on this issue.

Your presence, your person or your testimony will carry great weight at these two meetings. See the links below for more information.

Looking for a way to have fun AND give back this aloha Friday? Consider the “Golf in Paradise Tournament” being held on Kaua’i at the award winning Princeville Makai Golf Course with immaculate course conditions and 5 ocean front holes on Friday, April 7th 2017.

All proceeds go to ‘Ohana Oasis, whose mission is to provide a week of peace and restoration, a space for bereaved parents to rediscover joy in life after the death of a child here on Kauai’s north shore.   With close to 120 parents on their waiting list, the need for additional retreats and funding for them is clear.  Even for those fortunate enough to have a network of support, it is an all-encompassing, overwhelming life changing event, forcing parents to re-evaluate their lives, their identities, and what is important to them.

Gather together a foursome or make new friends when you are paired up for a fun modified scramble.  Tournament play begins at 8:00am shotgun.  Registration/check in begins at 7:00am. See below for further detail:

“We were given space…space to grieve and space to dream.  Space to be exactly who we are, in our new skin as a bereaved parent.  We were given understanding and acceptance and compassion unlike we will experience anywhere else.’ – Vienne’s Mom

An integral part of the retreat experience is releasing all worries and burdens to feel the love and support of a greater community. Therefore ‘Ohana Oasis makes retreats available to participants free of charge.  Their objective is to create a healing and joy filled week for parents that isn’t clouded by financial concerns.

Mahalo for your support. Hope to see you there.

Nick Gotelaere R(S)

The Bali Hai Ohana welcomes Nick Gotelaere!

Now a Kauai resident, Nick made his way here via Colorado where he spent many years as a culinary arts practitioner, business owner and chef. Prior to that (he swears he wasn’t running from the law) he moved more than eleven times before the age of 15!  He is now happily growing roots on beautiful Kauai, and if you’ve ever planted anything here, you know things take root easily. The natural grandeur and lifestyle of Kauai has a way of doing that.

Nick is looking forward to sharing his experience with you and helping you achieve your Kauai real estate goals. We share his enthusiasm and look forward to his success!
