hawaii life: It's time to get back to blogging, and sharing Maui with the world. - 02/04/16 12:04 PM
It's time to get back to blogging, and sharing Maui with the world.
I have taken some time off in the past few weeks, time off from blogging that is.  Well it's been nagging at me and I'm ready to get back to work!  Many of you enjoy the beautiful pictures of Maui, especially during the cold winter months when you're digging out of snow drifts or driving to work in the dark.
Some new listings in Haiku will provide eye candy to tease you about packing up and moving to Maui, or maybe just coming over for a short visit.  These … (6 comments)

Makawao and Pukalani Maui - Realtor Caravan listings Dec 2015
How refreshing it was to see the 4 new listings featured on the December Realtor Caravan this month. Fidelity Title sponsors our weekly events that cover the north shore, and Upcountry Maui. With nothing over $540,000 it was a stark contrast to the Paia/Haiku December caravan the previous week where nothing was under $1M.  You really can't beat this part of the island when it comes to affordable housing with a friendly small town atmosphere.

hawaii life: Fresh Smoked Pork from Makawao - a roadside treat - 12/09/15 10:15 AM
Fresh Smoked Pork from Makawao - a roadside treat
If you're looking for some fresh smoked pork, made from wild mountain pigs, look for this sign across from St. Joseph's Church in Makawao, Upcountry Maui.  Lucky me I spotted the sign today and pulled over.  For $20 I got a nice 2 pound bag with lots of smoky greasy strips of pork.  The flavor is so good, with natural smoke and other seasonings. Straight from the mountain, into the smoker, and onto my table... I like that.  This is how we do "sustainable food" on Maui.
What can you do with the smoked … (2 comments)

Haiku Maui - new luxury listings offer some real surprises
Last week was the usual North Shore Maui Realtor Caravan, with lots of great new listings in Paia and Haiku featured and available to tour. We get together and visit the homes and properties as a way to preview for our clients.  It's fun to network and keep abreast of the real estate market.
This past week offered up some fantastic luxury homes for sale and it's hard to say which one was the best! 
My favorite would be 166 Apuwai St. which had a dramatic transformation from a run-down bank owned "windsurfer … (4 comments)

Haiku Market grand opening - new owners, same great place
We recently had a change of ownership at the local Haiku Market, in downtown Haiku Maui. This little grocery store has been growing up and filling out over the past 14 years or so, with a great selection of items.  The expansion and remodeling paid off, and they were bought out by the company that owns Foodland grocery stores here in Hawaii.  But you won't be seeing the Foodland sign over the door... it will stay Haiku Market.
I was there on opening day, with the shelves packed and the friendly staff all … (2 comments)

Kula Maui landscape - like a Curtis Wilson Cost painting
Kula Maui is very picturesque, with rolling pastures, ocean views and rustic old farm buildings. One of the famous painters here on the island is Curtis Wilson Cost. You can see his beautiful art work in many galleries and other locations. What is striking about his paintings is that they look so real and within reach. I love the classic scenes of times gone by.

This photo was taken up in Kula Maui, while touring the homes for sale on Realtor Caravan. The rusty shed, the blue skies and green pastures, puffy white … (10 comments)

Happy Easter from Haiku Maui - painted goose eggs
Back when we used to have a few geese I would collect the eggs and blow them out for painting. These are some of the results. 

We no longer have geese, since having Jack Russell Terriers doesn't make it very easy to have free range poultry. Now I have to settle for chicken eggs... but haven't gotten around to painting any this year.
I hope you have a Happy Easter and spring!
