Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood
If you want an oceanfront home in Kihei Maui, the options are somewhat limited, because much of the coastal real estate is taken up by condominium resorts, and beach parks.  South Kihei Road is the main artery along the coastline, and there's a few streets that extend beyond this and offer some neighborhoods with single family homes.  Uluniu Rd. is one, and Halama St. is another.  Let's see what's happening on Halama St....
Halama Street - runs between Kalama Park to the south, and up to W. Kapu Rd. to the north.

community: Weather the storms with an off-grid home on Maui - 08/28/18 06:34 PM
Survive a tropical storm or hurricane with an off-grid home on Maui - and come out smiling.
Disclaimer - it's not about building materials, but more about lifestyle.
During this past Hurricane Lane event that happened in Hawaii in August, it was a good feeling knowing we were completely prepared in so many ways.  Strong winds knocked down trees, which knocked down power lines, causing loss of electricity for thousands of homes. In at least one location a water line was busted when the roadway collapsed, resulting in no water service to a number of homes in Haiku.  Power and water loss are … (3 comments)

community: Maui short term rental update - 5 year restriction coming - 04/29/18 08:41 PM
It seems to be a trend in this country, and maybe even worldwide, that communities are clamping down on short term rental activities in their neighborhoods. Airbnb is in the spotlight along with other home sharing websites. 
Maui short term rental update - 5 year restriction coming.  If you're thinking about buying a home on Maui so you can start renting it out on Airbnb, you're in for a surprise.  A new law will come into effect this September that puts some restrictions on what you can do with your property.

Maui County does not make it easy to turn your home … (0 comments)

community: What's so great about the Kula 200 neighborhood? - 10/31/17 02:44 PM
Kula 200 is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Upcountry Maui, situated where Pukalani meets Kula, and technically it's in Pukalani but it sure feels more like Kula.  Street names in Kula 200 include: Aulii Drive; Aulii Place; Poha Place; Lealea Place; Hoopalua Drive; Welina Place and Alokele Place.

Lots of space:  This subdivision was created in the 1970's as an Agricultural subdivision to allow owners to build a house and cottage on a few acres.  It's well thought out with underground utilities and winding roads which give it a nice country feeling.  You can see goats grazing and lot of mature … (2 comments)

community: Q & A - How Long will we pay for an HOA? - 06/22/17 06:27 AM
This is an important thing to consider when shopping for a home!  HOA dues generally don't go away, and will increase over time.  Please stop by the original post to leave a comment.
 
 
I was helping a potential buyer trying to decide what community they wanted to live and the question was posed -
    If a community has an HOA, does it stop in 20 years, or when does the HOA stop making rules for those homeowners?
 
GOOD QUESTION, and one I did not have an immediate answer for.  I found out they are permanently in place.
 
However, … (9 comments)

community: Hawaii's first off-grid solar classroom is built in Hana Maui - 09/13/16 10:11 AM
The solar powered off-grid classroom in Hana Maui is the first of its kind, and was built by the young people of the community as part of a hands-on training program called Ma Ka Hana Ka 'Ike - "in working, one learns".  High school kids and recent graduates completed the classroom in time for the fall school session this year.

community: Catching up with some posts from my Hawaii Life blog - 08/31/16 12:59 PM
I realize it's been about 2 years since I put together a Hawaii Life Blogroll... times flies when you blog!  Just to fill in some blanks, here's a list of my posts that show up on the Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers blog. It's more business-like over there and I don't have as much fun as I do here on Activerain.  Why is that?  It's great to get the comments and feedback here and I appreciate this community of bloggers!
Here's the short list that goes back a few months, and if you're interested in more you'll be able to navigate your … (4 comments)

community: Pics of Pukalani Terrace Center in Pukalani Maui Hawaii - 08/20/16 11:26 AM
Just an update of the Pukalani Terrace Center in Pukalani Maui Hawaii with some pictures to show what's available for shops and services as this convenient Upcountry shopping center.

At the north end closest to the Old Haleakala Highway you've got the recycling and redemption center where you can bring in your bottles and cans for cash, or drop off your carboard, plastic, glass, etc. for recycling.
Also at this end is Ace Hardware and the Bank of Hawaii.  You can plug in your electric car here while you do some shopping or banking, and I think it's still free to charge up.

Have you ever seen a Maypole dance? Haiku Maui has one.
We were lucky to be invited to a neighbor's Mayday celebration over the weekend, where they had their 10th annual Maypole dance on a beautiful sunny day in Haiku Maui.

They had a huge pole of bamboo placed into a hole in the yard, with many colorful ribbons attached at the top. Each participant holds a ribbon as they dance around the pole in 2 directions, weaving in and out of each other. An array of hand drummers beat out the time during the process which took well over … (9 comments)
