Construction to start on Lahaina Bypass - 11/29/08 01:11 PM
Or are they just teasing us again. The Maui News reported today that Transportation Director Brennon Morioka states work on the Lahaina bypass will begin in Mid-December. After over 30 years of delays this vital project is set to commence in just over 2 weeks. The most recent set of delays occurred due to previously undiscovered archaeological sites. The newest plan avoids those sites. The bypass will help ease traffic congestion in and out of Lahaina. Currently the 2 lane road known as the Pali, is the only road between Lahaina and vital services such as our only hospital in Wailuku. (2 comments)
New Maui Thanksgiving Traditions - 11/28/08 03:54 PM
Thanksgiving in Maui is a bit different than Tday on the mainland. For starters it's warm, very warm. While some mainlanders spend the morning getting bundled up to go visit the family (ohana), we went snorkeling at Airport Beach. That might not exactly be traditional elsewhere, but it seems like a good tradition to start here. After touring the coral and seeing hundreds of brightly colored fish we returned to our home at Aina Nalu (land and wave), to carry on another new tradition. It was our second year of what we hope becomes a long lasting tradition and the smells (0 comments)
Get in on the ground floor - Kaanapali Shores 139 - 11/25/08 11:38 AM
The best thing about Kaanapali Shores 139 is its location. That's the opinion of the scores of visitors who have stayed in this comfortable ground floor condominium. That's because you can bring the tropics inside. Just slide open the lanai (patio) doors and extend your living area to a tropical forest. Read, relax and play in your own park setting right outside your back door. Maui has a reputation for being low stress, laid back and hassle free. When you arrive in Maui, you're on Maui time! So what could be better than getting off the plane, making your Costco run (0 comments)
When the going gets tough - 11/24/08 12:18 PM
Traffic was light at the Banyan Tree I used to run with friends on Sunday mornings. We didn't run just to stay in shape. It was a weekly opportuntity to catch up on everyone and every thing. I'm trying to get back to that old tradition and this Sunday I went for a run/walk with my best friend. We wound up our outing in Lahaina's Banyan Tree Park. On Sunday mornings this park is bustling with artisans, craftspersons, artists and musicians. But not this Sunday. There were a lot of empty spaces. Maybe it was the forecast for heavy rain that (0 comments)
As an investor, I like the one bedroom units because tourists like the one bedroom units. It's all in the numbers. All lot of the visitors to Maui are couples or couples with small children. They don't need a 2 bedroom unit, so why pay extra to rent a room you won't use? Bottom line: 1 bedroom units have higher occupancy than 2 bedroom units. What else do visitors to Maui want? They want an ocean view. So (0 comments)
Thar's gold on them thar beaches in Maui. - 11/16/08 04:14 PM
That's right pilgrim, there are deals on condos on Maui. Take Honua Kai 724. This "owner"* is obligated to pay $690,000 for this gorgeous unit in Maui's best new building on Kaanapali's last stretch of open beach. This investor is willing to take a $32,000 loss, and you have a chance to buy into the market and gain instant equity. This one bedroom one bath on the 7th floor has bearutful views of the West Maui Mountains. The sunrises are gorgeous, especially when there is a cloud cover and the sun changes the cloud colors from blues to pinks to purples. (0 comments)
Bailout Bomb - 11/14/08 01:31 AM
Who benefits from the bailout? Who gets bailed out and who does the bailing? It looks like the responsible middle class is going to take it in the shorts again. So far, it looks like the money is going to corporations, who instead of deploying the cash in the credit markets are hording it out of fear and, yes, greed. The same greedy execs that sit at the top of companies for which they have made irresponsible decisions and led to the brink, are holding onto the cash, keeping their salaries, bonuses and some parachutes. But are they doing anything responsible? (3 comments)
Morning Run in Lahaina - 11/13/08 03:19 PM
Mornings in Lahaina, Maui, are uncommonly cool in every sense. Yes, it gets warm, OK, hot later in the day, but mornings are cool. Barb just left for her walk with Mihaela and sister Kathy at Kaanapali. I've decided to take advantage of the cool morning and go for a run. I usually like to run in the afternoon. I head out down Wainee Street, which is between Front Street and the Highway and parallels them both. I start off at a fast walk to warm up. I've reached an age at which my bones, joints and feet need to get (2 comments)
Honua Kai 922 - Best buy at Honua Kai - 11/04/08 11:45 PM
If you want to sell in the Maui condo market today you have to be real and be serious. This seller is real serious and is arguably offering you the best deal at Honua Kai. He has a large floor plan, 1,235 sq.ft., two bedroom, Honua Kai condo for sale. He is the reservation holder for unit 922 (if you're not sure what that means, email email@example.com.) He is obligated to pay $975,000, the initial offering price, but he is prepared to "take a haircut" as they say, and you can get it for $899,000. At $899,000, Honua Kai 922 is (1 comments)
Halloween in Lahaina is large. Some estimate that up to 30,000 people arrive for this holiday that was once special for children only, but is now special for children, children with families and, in some cases, adults only. This year for some political the normal parties couldn't get all the permits they've always been able to get. So would we have Halloween or no Halloween? Well the Keiki parade, the best part of Lahaina Halloween for some of us, was still on and here's how it went.
Lahaina Sne Smurf and Junior, you had to be there.
