Information and Updates on the Maui real estate market, the Kapalua resort, and events island wide.



The pulse of the Kapalua Resort real estate market is getting stronger, if the price is right.  A flurry of activity occurred when a bank owned property was listed in Pineapple Hill I at $1,700,000 As Is.  An offer was received immediately, and the property is now pending sale.  Due to the status...

  Finally!  Something for everyone!  The Kapalua Resort has long been known for gracious homes and private luxury condominium villas perched along the water's edge.  However, until now, the Kapalua Resort has not offered residential opportunities in a luxury hotel setting, with the accompanying ...
While Maui is famous for its beaches and golf courses, there are many wonderful things to do beyond the resorts. Living and working in Kapalua is idyllic, but when I have a day off, one of my favorite day trips is to loop between the towns of Paia and Makawao.  Paia is a sleepy beachside town fil...
