1982 Hurricane Iwa wrecks Kikiaola’s residential rental properties. From the wrecked homes, Mike Faye develops Waimea Plantation Cottages. Old plantation houses were purchased from Kekaha Sugar, and moved to Waimea Plantation Cottages and renovated. The Kikiaola Land Company’s Maintenance Department was transformed into Kikiaola Construction and gained experience moving buildings and adaptive reuse of old plantation camp house and other plantation buildings. In the late 1980’s Kikiaola Construction moved the HP Faye Home (Mikes grandfather) located near Mana, Kauai, to the Cottages and converted it to the resort’s Front Desk and Administrative Building.
