haiku: Planning a trip to Maui? Don't take the Hana Highway! - 07/04/20 09:16 PM
Planning a trip to Maui?  Don't take the Hana Highway!
Almost everyone who comes to Maui as a visitor used to be encouraged to take the "road to Hana" for a once in a lifetime experience. It's famous for the 52 or so single lane bridges, stunning vistas, tropical jungle and white knuckle hair-pin curves.  But that was then and this is now...
First of all, you may have to pass through the National Guard checkpoint at Twin Falls, where they'll ask you what your business is.  Are you driving to Hana?  Is it absolutely necessary?  If you're driving a Mustang or Jeep, … (13 comments)

 Aerial shot of Huelo and Waipio Bay on Maui's north shore
Huelo, Waipio, Honokala - Haiku Maui from the air
It's a big wide shot of this beautiful coastal scenery along Maui's north shore.  You won't see this from the Road to Hana, but with a drone flying camera it's possible. This is the coastline on the top of the eastern flank between Paia and Keanae, showing the typical terrain of seaside cliffs punctuated with mountain streams in steep gorges.  The land drops away quickly offshore as well, making for deep ocean currents just a short way out.
We love it here because it's … (8 comments)

When they gonna fix those roads in upcountry Maui? 
Ask the Mayor!
That was a question for the Mayor of Maui and his answer is in the Maui News.
---> The improvements are coming soon - on some roads that really need it: Upper Kauhikoa Rd and Kaluanui Rd in Haiku.
We look forward to better driving conditions in Haiku, Makawao, and Pukalani.

haiku: Walking to Haiku Elementary School just got a lot easier - 10/03/18 07:14 PM
If you live in Haiku Maui, you've noticed the construction of new sidewalks this summer, and now into fall.  It's been slowing down traffic on Pauwela Road, just above the Haiku Elementary School and up to the intersection with Haiku Road.  Brand new sidewalks are going in, making it easier to walk to school if you live in town. 

With all the new lots being sold at Haiku Town Center, and also at Kauhikoa Farms, more families will be building homes and living near the school and walking to school.  This upgrade has been a long time coming, since the old … (2 comments)

460 Hoolawa Rd. Haiku Maui oceanfront offering listed for $1,395,000
Million Dollar Views:  This beautiful oceanfront lot just got an updated video tour on Vimeo so I want to show it off. Every day you can see crashing waves roll in from the cliff top and savor the ocean breezes. Watch whales in the winter months, and look for seabirds soaring overhead. Marvel at the big blue Pacific Ocean that stretches out as far as you can see.
Each oceanfront lot can build a large main house, and a cottage up to 1,000 square feet since the agricultural zoning allows for 2 dwellings … (3 comments)

Haiku Maui Hawaii off-grid building site with views!   FOR SALE
Haiku Maui - Burns Road is accessed from the lower end of Kaupakalua Road, and much of this area is ranch land and wide open country.  It's a little out-of-the-way spot that many Maui people don't even know about.  This new gated neighborhood only has a few building lots so you won't have many neighbors.

Go Off-Grid - What a sweet spot to build your off the grid homestead on Maui.  Take a look at the views and the surrounding countryside here at 549 Burns Road, Haiku Maui.

My cute chicken house in Haiku Maui - happy chickens!
My laying chickens are now happily housed in their own little chicken coop at the end of our yard where we can keep an eye on them.
You might remember these hens when they were in their "chicken tractor" which was a pretty good setup until they got full size.  It was a bit crowded for all 8 of them at the time.  One hen didn't make it, just up and died overnight and then there were 7.  Still a bit crowded so my wonderful husband built them this small but functional little … (13 comments)

I love my garden and all the great food it provides.  I love spending time harvesting, but also planting and weeding too.  It's great exercise and it feels so good to be outdoors and amongst all that greenery.

Happy Easter from Haiku Maui - come and get your farm fresh eggs! 
Wishing everyone a Happy Easter weekend with lots of fun things to do. 
We'll be busy gathering all the eggs from our 8 new hens who are very productive, and the 6 old hens who are in semi-retirement.  It's always fun to see how many eggs get laid each day.  These new layers are really paying for their keep, with 7 or 8 eggs a day.  The old girls aren't so great but it's hard to kick them out since they have been good producers in their time.  … (5 comments)

haiku: The Brando Estate in Haiku Maui is back on the market - 02/22/18 06:41 PM
The Brando Estate on Maui is back on the market, and listed with Hawaii Life Real Estate.
480 Puniawa Rd. is currently listed for $2,375,000
A little of the back story:  Marlon Brando bought this 26.7 acre property when it was raw land, because he could appreciate the privacy and beauty of this north shore location.  (Haiku Maui is a great place to live for those who don't care for the city life, or gated subdivisions with rules and regulations.) In 1997 he sold the land to a couple from Alaska and they built this 2-story pole home.  As time passed and the … (4 comments)

haiku: My Haiku hens are growing so big, look at them now! - 12/07/17 10:44 PM
My Haiku hens are growing so big, look at them now!
We got 8 chicks two months ago and I posted some pictures of them here in their cozy starter home.  It seemed so big and roomy back then.
Look at them now!  These 8 hens are soon going to need a bigger house.  We plan to move them into the chicken coop in another month or so once they are big enough to outsmart any mongoose that comes around.  In the meantime they get moved around the backyard enough to keep the grass mowed.

Would you buy a coconut from this man on the side of the road? He's wielding a big knife and wearing an eye patch, looking a lot like a pirate!

Fresh coconuts for sale in Haiku Maui
I had to stop just to get some pictures, and I did buy a coconut while I watched him open it with his machete right in front of me.  It was worth it - the coconut water was sweet and refreshing, and I was thirsty.  
He was enterprising enough to be there selling his coconuts and I didn't mind helping him out with a few dollars.  … (12 comments)
