 HOLOLANI BEACH RESORT:  Resort Improvements

 Update from Hololani Resident Manager 10/15/19:

 As of today, the A building exterior spalling work is complete.  Scaffolding has been relocated to the B building, and work on the “02” stack is nearly complete.  The “01” stack is already complete.  Each stack requires 2 – 3 days of work.  The ocean-facing side of the B building is estimated to be complete by the end of this week.  

 In addition, lanais will be pressure washed, painted and undergo touch-up spalling where necessary.  During this time, hallway carpet is also being removed and replaced. 

 Work hours are from 8am – 4pm M-F, no weekends.

 Update 8/13/19: The work got off to a slow start due to technical issues and bad weather, so we're probably a week or two behind schedule. So, Building A was expected to take approximately two months from July 15th to about September 15th and due to the delays we're hoping to have Building A completed around September 30. Then Building B should take about 2 months, starting around October 1st through approx. November 30th. All of these dates are estimates, due to the unpredictability of the weather. 

 During the entire project, owners and guests can expect to see workmen, scaffolding, some grinding sound, etc., depending on how many cracks and spalling repairs are required. Removal and prepping of the exterior walkways will create some inconvenience and noise during July-22-August 9th, but will not prevent owners and guests from accessing their unit.

 Original Notice Received 2/8/19: Beginning on July 15th, spalling repairs (places where weather has caused visible damage to the building) and painting will begin on Building “A”. When Building “A” is finished they will start on Building “B”. The entire project will take approximately 4 months. When the painting is completed, new carpeting will be installed on the exterior walkways on each floor. The painting project should have minimal impact on owners and guests.

 Additional updates will be provided as work progresses.

>There is no beach access on the property and resort staff strongly recommends you use an alternative beach access within walking distance for most.

  • Building 2 - Mar 30-May 1, 2020 {posted 2/11/19}

KAHANA REEF:  Sea Wall Repair Project = 3 Phases over 3 years June 2018 - Oct 2020, Plumbing Project &  Elevator Refurbishment

  • Phase 1 2018 - COMPLETE  
  • Phase 2 2019 - June 1 to approx. end Nov. of 2019 
  • Phase 3 2020** - April thru Oct of 2020

The sea wall repair will begin with the area in front of the pool. The south parking lot will be the staging and access area for repair of the section fronting the pool. The pool may or may not be off limits during portions of this repair.

 Update posted 10/18/19:

The Phase 2 seawall's subfooting and vertical support are complete. The wave reflector cap's form is being installed and about half done. Recent ocean conditions are hindering progress. Once the form is complete, the cap will be poured. Thereafter the work area will be filled in. At this time it is estimated that most work on Phase 2 will be done by end of November.

**There are recent sinkhole issues at the north property line. This affected area is outside and in addition to the scope of work originally set for Phase 3. Work will begin soon to stabilize that area for the winter season. Hard efforts are being made to receive Phase 3 approval with amendments so repair on Phase 3 and additional north property line can start early spring 2020.

 Update posted 8/27/19:

Phase 2 of the sea wall project will begin the deep dig sub-foundation phase on 8/28/19.  These sub-foundation pours need to be done at low tide. Work is expected to start at 7am.  The phase 2 concrete removal is not complete. Due to the length of the wall, this process needs to be done in stages to maintain the integrity and stability of the original wall. 

To speed the entire process, the contractor has been given permission to start at 7:30am M-F. They were also given permission to work on Saturdays. The AOAO will do it's best to send out an email notice a day in advance when a Saturday work day is planned. Once the deep digs begin, the work hours and days will be dictated by low tide calendar.

>Elevator Refurbishment Project: (Notice received 6/26/19; Updated 10/18/19):

Both elevators are earmarked as a Reserves Project to be refurbished over the next year, starting with the south elevator. 

The north elevator's refurbishment is finished. We are waiting on the final State inspection which is scheduled for next Wednesday, Oct. 23rd.  Most of the equipment and tools from the repair have been removed from the premises.  Once both units pass the final State inspection, the remainder of the contractor's equipment will be removed.

 

KAPALUA GOLF VILLAS Notice received 9/24/19:

Resort Wide Dryer Vent Maintenance:

Vent Pros Hawaii will need to be in each unit for approximately fifteen (15) to twenty (20) minutes to disconnect the dryer vent hose at the dryer and run brushes through the ducting all the way to the outside.  The lint is removed with a large HEPA vacuum. Depending on the make of dryer, we may or may not have to move the dryer.  After cleaning, they will reconnect the dryer and test connection for leaks.  Technicians will clean and inspect the outside jacks on the wall of the building, making sure the bird guard is on.  We ask residents to have a clear pathway from the front door to the dryer, so they can bring in their HEPA vacuum. 

Buildings 20 & 21 to be serviced on 11/19/19

LOKELANI BEACH RESORT: Resort & unit improvements

 Posted 10/17/2019: Lokelani and other West Maui properties are often addressing issues relevant to common areas.  The Lokelani Board has approved the following forward steps:

 ** NOV-DEC 2019:   We are anticipating an exploratory seawall project in Q4.  It will likely extend up to 3 weeks, from Thanksgiving until mid-December.   It will not extend into "high season.''   Any potential guest interruption will begin in C building, then move to B building, then move to A building.   The contractor will attempt to limit guest interruption to the following time frame:  10 AM to 3 PM. However, based on weather conditions, that could extend earlier or later.  We do anticipate some noise issues during the midday hours.

** JUNE 2020:   We are anticipating a 4-day seawall project that should have minimal guest impact.   It may require some parking adjustment, but otherwise will not negatively impact guest enjoyment of Lokelani.

** Q2/Q3 2020:   Lokelani will be engaging in a comprehensive painting project in summer/fall 2020.   At this writing, we do not anticipate that this project will negatively impact Rental.   We are attempting to schedule the project for September 2020, but are still negotiating with vendors.  Thus, this is an advisory communication only -- we will share an update when a vendor contract has been finalized.

  >Lanai Sealing project

Update as of 3/26/19 Project has been postponed indefinitely:

Message received from the Lokelani Resident ManagerWe do plan to conduct a maintenance project -- sealing all 54 lanais  (project start date TBD). This will have a 4-hour impact on each lanai (including moving furniture, applying the sealant, allowing for drying time, and replacing the lanai furniture.)  We will attempt to minimize distribution for all guests while also working efficiently with our vendor.  The vendor has been authorized to work up to six days weekly (Sundays are mandatory off-days).   Work must be complete, including Oceanside clean-up activities, by 5 PM daily. When not working on the lanais noted above, the vendor will be repairing stucco and tile cracks on various lanais (typically when the units are not occupied, under supervision of the Lokelani resident manager)

POHAILANI  (Notice Dated 6/8/19):

The adjacent Kahana Reef Resort will be starting the second phase of their seawall work beginning next week June 10, 2019. In the first week they will be mobilizing the job, and beginning the actual construction on the wall the following week. They will be bringing equipment and material through the south end of their property, but the actual work will be done further north on their property as they have completed the work adjacent to our property in phase 1. They will be working from their pool area north, and are expected to be working on this project for the next 3 to 4 months. Their scope of work as I understand it is they will be excavating behind their existing wall and adding concrete fortifications to the existing wall from behind and adding a concrete cap.  

Sometime during this period they will also be coming onto our property to fill our sinkholes created this last winter. We do not have a date for this work at this time.
