Customer Listing Synopsis


Market Update

Seawalls are used to save roads, homes, condos and other infrastructure from chronic coastal erosion. Without the protection of seawalls these structures could eventually fall into the ocean. A seawall is the most common solution to erosion, it involves building a large structure as a barrier between the ocean and coastal property.

In West Maui the condo complexes most affected by rising waters and shoreline erosion are on Kahana Beach. Starting on the Southern end, Sands of KahanaValley Isle ResortRoyal Kahana and Hololani are fighting the ocean with sandbags.

Hololani has received a permit for a temporary seawall.

The Kahana Reef has either raised their AOAO fees or levied a monthly assessment of $600 or more to raise money to address the issue by obtaining permits to rebuild their seawall.

Papakea Resort has done work on their seawall and it seems to be under control.  Kaanapali Shores has a different type of seawall and seems to be in good shape.

The Kahana Bay Restoration Foundation Facebook Page is an excellent source for updated information on this important matter.

Have a wonderful week!

Ken, Melissa, Greg and Lindsey

P.S. -  Almost a year ago the Haleakala National Park started requiring visitors to make a reservation to go to the crater for sunrise.  Now a year later the Park is considering making some changes to the sunrise reservation system such as implementing a waitlist and altering cancellation policies.
