Blessing of the Pinnacle Site


The Pinnacle¹s Kai nehe is Blessed and Good to Go

3-D Builders Begins Construction
KAANAPALI, MAUI, HAWAII --(May 14, 2003) --It was another perfect Kaanapali sunset on May 2, as an illustrious group of individuals gathered to bless The Pinnacle Kaanapali¹s newest addition ... the Kai nehe. The Kai nehe is a 4800 sq. ft. home scheduled for completion in 2004 and offered exclusively by Whalers Realty Inc., the host of this culturally-rich event.

Observing Hawaiian tradition, esteemed Kahuna, Clifford Naeole and Sam Ka¹ai,
presided over the evening and requested that the guests assist in "asking permission to change the energy of the land." Using the traditional ti leaf which was weathered and worn but chosen for its wisdom, salt used for cleansing, and the water representing purification, Ka¹ai walked the perimeter of the home site invoking the ancient chant.

Robert J. (Bob) Cartwright, Whalers Realty¹s Principal Broker, acknowledged the many hands responsible for making the event come off without a hitch including The Pinnacle¹s Project Manager, Rick Martin, and his Support Staff members, Tori LaPolla and Lisa Montarti. "The developers and I feel it¹s very important to show our kokua ... Therefore, we¹d like to thank all of those who worked so hard on this evening," Mr. Cartwright said. "I am also grateful to Clifford and Sam for bringing us all together in spirit." Mr. Cartwright also acknowledged Elite Mortgage, Title Guaranty Escrow Services, Homes & Land Magazine, and Christian Jurgenson of CJ¹s Deli for contributing the libations for the evening.

Dan Goodfellow of 3-D Builders spoke about the future of the new home: "To whoever may become the ultimate owners of this wonderful new home ­ whether it¹s several families or just one family for generations to come ­ we wish them much happiness here ... a lot of heart and soul has gone into planning this home."

The architect for this residence is Farrington Bayless, and the general contractor is 3D Builders. For more information on The Pinnacle Kaanapali, please visit the website, pinnacle-kaanapali.com or call us at 808-495-0022.
