Because we have this rich Hawaiian heritage, I started this running blog that features recipes with a Hawaiian flair. If you love collecting recipes, please check back so that you can collect your favorites.
Collecting and sharing recipes of Hawaii is our hobby, but our passion is helping people with their real estate needs. Hawaii offers some of the most beautiful islands in the world and we believe Kauai has some of the very best real estate available. There will be Kauai properties offered at a first-ever PEAC/Hawaii Auction on November 26th. Check out the auction offerings as these choice properties could quite possibly sell for fractions of their value.
If you would like more information on properties being offered at this auction, or other Kauai properties, please contact us with your real estate needs, we are here to assist.
