AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM OUR 'OHANA:

The Chase 'N Rainbows 'Ohana appreciates that the COVID-19 situation presents unprecedented, challenging times for everyone. Please note the following important information: 

 

IMPORTANT TRAVEL UPDATES:

TRAVEL UPDATE AS OF 7/13/2020: 

NEW. Today, Governor Ige announced the delaying of the launch of pre-travel testing program until September 1st.  The pre-test program would have allowed for trans-Pacific travelers to avoid the 14-day quarantine beginning in August if they produced a negative coronavirus pre-test, taken within 72 hours of departure to Hawaii.  Unfortunately, there has been a surge in infections on the mainland, including in some of the markets that travelers to Hawaii typically come from.

THEREFORE, UNTIL AT LEAST SEPT 1, 2020, OUT-OF-STATE VISITORS THAT ARRIVE IN MAUI COUNTY MUST COMPLETE A 14-DAY MANDATORY QUARANTINE AT A HOTEL OR MOTEL PRIOR TO RENTAL OF A CONDOMINIUM, BED AND BREAKFAST HOME OR SHORT-TERM RENTAL HOME.

A reminder of the following:

  • The State of Hawaii and County of Maui does not permit Transient Vacation Rentals (TVRs) at Condominium units zoned hotel to those subject to the 14-day quarantine.  The below link is a list of approved hotels/motel accommodations for visitors subject to the 14-day quarantine requirement, which was issued on July 10th.  

https://www.mauicounty.gov/DocumentCenter/View/122581/HOTEL---COVID19-Quarantine-list-7-10-20

  • The governor’s proclamation includes host liability, which means that TVR owners may be subject to enforcement if they rent to individuals who are subject to the 14-day quarantine. See Section IV. C. Host Responsibility at the following link: https://governor.hawaii.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/2006097A-ATG_Ninth-Supplementary-Proclamation-COVID-19-distribution-signed.pdf
  • Although many visitor related businesses were permitted to open for weeks now, many have not because they do not expect the visitor numbers needed to support their business and several are not able to provide the required safety requirements to open.  Please call ahead of time to verify that what you want to visit will be open when they arrive. The internet is not covid-19 updated on many websites. Many websites reflect hours and openings that are not covid-19 current.

STATEWIDE 14-DAY QUARANTINE FOR ARRIVALS ON OR AFTER MARCH 26, 2020: 

Per the Order:

  • Those arriving will be asked for ID verification, the location of where they are staying and a phone number for contact.  Visitors will be quarantined in the hotel or rented lodging that they are staying. 
  • The traveler will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the airport.
  • The penalty for violation of the order is $5,000 and/or a year in prison.
  • The quarantine does not apply to flight crews and pilots.
  • The traveler is fully responsible for the cost of the quarantine. 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OUR VALUED GUESTS: 

GUESTS ARRIVING THROUGH AUGUST 2020 MUST CHANGE STAY DATES TO A FUTURE TIME WITH NO PENALTY OR CANCEL FOR A FULL REFUND. 

GUESTS ARRIVING IN SEPTEMBER 2020 AND BEYOND: Cancel fees for arrivals through December 18, 2020 are being waived. If your cancellation is Covid-related, you may cancel without penalty and for a full refund up to 72 hours prior to arrival. Please note that as the COVID-19 situation unfolds, we are maintaining a very flexible cancellation and refund policy through 2020 and will extend this policy as needed.

HALE KAI: Exterior Painting Resort-wide July 1 - August 31, 2020 

 

HALE MAHINA: Exterior Painting Resort-wide JUNE 1 - approx. November 2020 (posted Nov. 5, 2019; Updated 1/12/2020 and 5/12/2020)

The resort-wide exterior painting project is now scheduled to begin on June 1, 2020.   Bldg. A work will begin on June 1, 2020 until approximately June 12, 2020.  Then work on Bldg. B. is scheduled from June 15th to approximately June 30th.  (Weather Permitting).   

We do apologize for the short notice, but the decision to paint the walkways and stairs during low occupancy will “free-up” the original scheduled “black-out” dates made for later this year.  The remainder of the work will then resume on August 3, 2020. 

Additional details and schedule will follow as information becomes available.  There will be crew, scaffolding, an extension boom truck, power washing, sanding and typical paint odors on the premises and lanai items may need to be removed for the project.

 

HOLOLANI BEACH RESORT: 

There is an ongoing painting project at the resort that should not have any great affect on guests per the resident manager.

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

KAANAPALI ROYAL:  Resort Improvements, Individual Unit Updates, Fees Increase Notice

Air Conditioning Chiller Upgrades: Approx. mid-July to Mid-August 2020 (Posted 6/9/2020):

The A/C system and its reliability have been an ongoing issue although the system is brand new.  An even newer, very robust system has since been manufactured to design specifically for Kaanapali Royal. These two new chillers will arrive to the property towards the end of July.  Each plant will take up to 10 days to complete. The plants will be taken down completely one at a time with the hopes that it is complete much sooner than 10 days. Please plan accordingly on not having A/C for approximately 10 days. North side (Buildings H - Q) will begin possibly the 20th of July and the South plant (servicing Buildings A - G) will begin right after, possibly the 3rd of August.

 

Fees Increase Notice (Posted 5/20/19)

  • Effective July 1, 2019, Ka’anapali Royal’s resort fee structure will change to $20/day, payable at the resort, whether or not guests are parking a vehicle, with a cap at 7 days/$140.00.  Second vehicles are an additional $140, 2 cars maximum.  

 

KAHANA OUTRIGGER: Resort Improvements + unit updates

>Exterior Dry Rot Repairs {Notice UPDATED 6/4/2020}:

  • Building 4 -Sept 13 -Oct 8, 2021 The work on the back lanais was completed in May 2020 so all that is left are the front entry decks.  There should be minimal impact on the property or guests.

 

KAHANA REEF: 

Sea Wall Repair Project = 3 Phases over 3 years June 2018 - Dec 2020

  • Phase 1 2018 - COMPLETE  
  • Phase 2 2019 - COMPLETE
  • Phase 3 2020** - April 1 thru approx early-December 2020

Update from resort posted 4/21/2020:  

The third and final phase of the seawall repair is underway. Work began as scheduled the first of April. It is crucial that the repair must continue without delay and that completion is achieved by the end of the year. This final phase will include repair of the additional work area along the north property line and at the northwest corner of Bldg C. This additional area was not part of the original seawall repair scope of work and budget. This additional area became devastatingly undermined by the ocean late last year, towards the end of phase 2 work.

Update from resort posted 1/10/2020:  

The permit for phase 3 has been approved. We will begin phase 3 of our seawall repair on or about April 1, 2020. As with the previous two phases, it is unknown how long this third phase will take. The previous two phases finished in December.  This does not mean that phase 3 will finish in December.  We should know more about an estimated completion date of phase 3 around July 2020.

 

LOKELANI BEACH RESORT: Resort & unit improvements

 Posted 10/17/2019:

Lokelani has been exceptionally fortunate with its seawall longevity thanks to foresightful decision-making by its association 20+ years ago.  Seawall erosion has been a major and ongoing issue in west Maui over the past several years, with several area resorts having experienced major losses and months-long reconstruction projects.  In addition to normal wear and tear, changes in climate patterns and rising sea levels are believed to major causes of accelerated seawall and shoreline decline.  The upcoming Lokelani seawall project will involve 14-21 days of drilling and repair preparation necessary to ensure that our seawall remains strong and sustainable well into the future.  While there will inevitably be some noise and other contractor activity around this project, we do not anticipate any issues with access to Lokelani facilities or the beach.  The condominium building and units will not be involved in the repair.   We feel fortunate that this effort is comparatively minor thanks to the original, environmentally-sensitive seawall design and construction.

The Lokelani Board has approved the following forward steps:

** 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.

UPDATE POSTED 01/23/2020:

SEAWALL:  Phase 2 of our seawall reinforcement will take place after High Season, whenever beach conditions are appropriate.   The AOAO board understands the impact this will have on owners, especially those who rely on rental income. AOAO will provide as much advance notice as possible regarding project schedules, but please note that nature is ultimately in control.  Our current guesstimate is late May.  The project will begin outside C building, and will continue to the south for approximately 3 weeks.  

The board approved a proposal from Performance Painting, which will be executed beginning Monday, Aug. 17.   The entire Lokelani facility will be painted, including doors and railings.   The project will begin in C building for approximately two weeks, then B and A building also for two weeks each (weather permitting).  Buildings will remain accessible during the painting process, with specific units addressed on a solitary day.  (Example:  A103 windows and patio doors would be taped with plastic protection a specific Wednesday).  Our site manager will update owners/guests regarding their unit's "painting day''  throughout the process. 

Cleaning the second-floor walkway will be completed during the first quarter.  It will likely be resurfaced later this year.

VALLEY ISLE BEACH RESORT: Resort Improvements/Projects/Shoreline Conditions 

NEW: Valley Isle Resort - Commercial Building Project - Beginning August 17, 2020 through approx May or June 2021 (Update as of 6/18/2020): 

A start date for the rebuild of the porte cochere, the lobby, the walkway to the high-rise and the separate building housing the health club which were destroyed in a fire, has been set for August 17, 2020.   We anticipate this to be a 9-10-month project so as of right now we believe construction will be completed in May or June of 2021. A few things to anticipate are less parking available as we will need to stage some materials, installation of a dust fence, the potential for noise, a temporary walkway and entrance to the resort through the pool area, a temporary construction office,  and contractors coming and going throughout the day. There will be some inconveniences for sure.  We will do our best to keep them at a minimum. Remember this will be a live construction site for months so expect all that comes with that.  

This project MAY affect guests staying at the adjacent Royal Kahana Resort (particularly those in condos on the south end of the property).
