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



Last night, the Ritz-Carlton Club, Kapalua Bay welcomed its first guests.  While I'd been on several construction tours over the past few years, I took the opportunity to walk through the property last night, seeing it all for the first time.  Flowing rivers line the walkway to the lobby, and the...
I am absolutely delighted to announce that my mother, Sarah K. Howard, has once again been selected to participate in Art Maui. Art Maui started in 1979, with a group of artists who wanted to provide a venue for local artists to showcase original work, and to encourage the collection of art.  Tod...
The roots of the Kapalua Resort are in agriculture--even the Kapalua Logo pays homage to the history of the resort, with a pineapple in the center of the butterfly.  In the past, diverse crops such as pineapple and coffee were grown here.   DT Flemming started Maunalei Arboretum to see what impor...

Driving home last night, I was thrilled to see treadmills in the window of the new Kapalua Spa fitness center.  Normally, this is not my reaction when it comes to seeing exercise equipment, however, the Kapalua Spa promises to be one of the most beautiful wellness centers on the island.    Schedu...
Sometimes, I find that I take living in paradise for granted.  Great weather, beautiful views, and the ocean at my feet, can get lost amidst the day to day.  But every so often, there's a magical moment that reminds me exactly why I love Maui so much.  Yesterday was one of those perfect days.  To...
It was announced Friday that Maui Land and Pineapple CEO, Rob Webber, has resigned his position.  MLP is the parent company of the Kapalua Resort.  Webber joined MLP in May of 2006, as CFO and Senior VP of Business Development.  On January 1, 2009, he was appointed to succeed David Cole in the po...
