The HBR Board of Directors has announced that the sale of the Happy Talk Lounge and Bali Hai Restaurant was completed last week.  The buyer is Jimit Mehta who owns and operates the very successful Kalypso restaurant in Hanalei town.

After renovation, it is estimated that the restaurant and bar will open sometime after the middle of April. The new owners are planning breakfast, lunch and dinner service with a happy hour and music each afternoon. 

Watch the HBR website for further announcements about menus and other plans.  Everyone should be very excited to have once again a dining experience while enjoying one of the best views on the island.

On the real estate front, Kauai continues to recover from the real estate slump. Sales have been spurred by lower prices and a competitive market.  Just this week the owners of HBR 9123/ 4 dropped their listing price by over $50,000 to $930,000.  

The view is from the lanai of 9123/4, a two bedroom lockout.  It has been extensively remodeled and features granite counters in the kitchen and baths, stainless steel appliances and a relaxing island decor. The unit is an active vacation rental averaging $60,000 in income.  Check out  my website
