haiku maui: A sweet testimonial from a seller client in Haiku Maui - 03/28/19 09:15 PM
Don't you love it when your clients really appreciate all the work you do to get their house sold?  This investment property was a real challenge and it seemed like there was always something going wrong, even before we got a contract.  Tenants, County Inspectors, neighbors, weather, plumbing, etc, but suffice it to say everyone was relieved when it was over.
Selling a home on Maui doesn't have to be difficult, and there are no hurdles that are insurmountable.  Let me help you get to SOLD, and make it look easy.

Phantom 4 ready for take off to film 460 Hoolawa Rd, Maui
The weather has been pretty nice in Haiku Maui lately so we were able to get the Phantom 4 up in the air for some new aerial footage and snap shots to showcase my oceanfront listing at 460 Hoolawa Rd.  You really need to see this from the air to appreciate the outrageous cliff top setting and the dramatic location.  This little flying camera does a great job!

haiku maui: Picking papayas from the tree in Haiku Maui Hawaii - 02/27/19 03:53 PM
Papayas are a favorite tropical fruit around the world.
We are blessed with a bounty of papayas this season, despite the wet winter.  It seems the rich soil from the previous veggie garden has made a big difference.  So I put together a short 1 minute video to show what the trees look like and how to pick the fruits, since many people have no idea where papayas come from.
It takes about a year to year and a half from planting to picking.  To really be on top of things you'd be starting more seeds every year or two to replace the … (7 comments)

Do you like to garden?  While pineapples used to be a big crop here in the islands, you won't find such large areas growing them anymore.  But most people will grow a few in their yard by simply planting the cut top from a table fruit.  They don't need much care.

haiku maui: A box of goodness from the garden in Haiku Maui - 01/10/19 12:15 AM
The new year is off to a good start. 
It's great to come home from a vacation on the cold and wintry mainland and go "shopping" for food in the garden.  With a freezer full of our own Maui grass-fed beef and a few things from the garden we've been eating quite well.

Grateful for a Thanksgiving dinner from farm to table
The weather this week in Haiku Maui is wet and windy so it's going to be nice to be stuck indoors on Thanksgiving day and do some cooking.  With these short and wet days, the veggie gardens tend to get neglected, but still produce plenty of things to eat... carrots, kale, beans, beets, okra, eggplant, herbs.  New beds will wait until spring, and the weeds get a chance to spread out. It's a good time to enjoy the fruits of our labors.

What's on the menu?  This year it's not the traditional turkey … (14 comments)

haiku maui: Thankful for friends who turn me on to favorite herbs - 11/13/18 03:54 PM
We love to garden and grow food, which is very easy to do in Haiku Maui.  It's nice to have friends who share this passion, and bring us new plants to try.  Over the years we have incorporated a lot of great herbs into our gardens.
From right to left: chili peppers; oregano; turmeric; my chickens!
Mike brought us Hawaiian chili peppers which are probably some of the hottest peppers you can find.  They are very small and grow all year round on the bush, so there's always an abundance of these fiery little gems ready for picking.  How much do you really … (12 comments)

haiku maui: 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)

Just a short peek at a brilliant double rainbow as a little shower blows in on the trade winds here on Maui's north shore.  You know what they say... where there's rain, there's rainbows, and we get plenty of them here in Hawaii.
In fact, so many that here's another quick video taken from the front porch/lanai at my home in Haiku Maui.  Good thing my iPhone was handy because these don't last long.

Two hurricanes have come and gone here on Maui and we have been very lucky to have no damages at our home.  In each case they downgraded to a Tropical Storm, which is less severe than a hurricane but still comes with some extreme weather.

Haiku Town Acres - a new subdivision in central Haiku Maui
This year a new Agricultural Subdivision in Haiku has been selling many of the 40 or so lots of 2 acres or more.  Haiku Town Acres is a development by the people of West Maui Land Company, and it's been in the works for about 10 years.  When you drive up Haiku Road from the Hana Highway, it will be on your right and begins about where the turn off for Kauhikoa Road is, by the water retention pond.  Auwaha Street spans the whole subdivsion, and Hekuawa Street branches off … (4 comments)

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)

haiku maui: Earth Day 2018 celebrated - big spring garden ready to plant - 04/23/18 02:43 PM
We celebrated Earth Day weekend by getting a new spring garden tilled up and ready to plant. My dear husband goes all out once a year and gives it a deep digging with his backhoe bucket to get rid of roots. I jump in and remove most of the grass roots, tree roots and other debris.  After adding supplements like compost and lime, he'll roto-till it all up thoroughly to make it light and lovely and rich. Ready to plant a spring garden!
This year while digging we also harvested the sweet potatoes which sort of took over naturally from some … (0 comments)

It's gardenia season on Maui - spring is in the air.
I love this time of year when the gardenias are blooming and their lovely fragrance fills the air!  We moved to Hawaii in the spring and I remember how wonderful it was to be surrounded with their heady scent.  Now it always reminds me of our first days of living here on this "best island in the world".
