home: What is a Home? - 02/27/19 04:47 PM
You'll know it when you feel it... a home can be anywhere that feels right.  A house is just a building, but a home is where you feel safe and content.
 
A home is a special place where you are safe, relaxed and familiar. A home is a place you make and it can be anywhere. A house is something else: it is just a structure. I have known folks who have been home in an apartment, a basement, a garage and even in a car. Believe it or not everyone doesn't need a formal structure they own to be happy.

Thankful for a family Christmas with 4 generations
This year we'll do something different for Christmas, and fly to Vancouver to be with my old dad.  Since he's 96 and almost 97 it's a little harder for him to travel, so we'll do the travelling this year. My nephew will join us, and so will his niece, which makes 4 generations under the roof for a few days!  My dad might not quite grasp that his great-granddaughter will be part of the fun, but it will be really important for her to make the connection.
My dad still lives in his West … (12 comments)

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)

home: Kahakuloa Maui market update - great views at the other upcountry - 06/26/18 08:09 PM
There are great big views at Kahakuloa Maui, the "other upcountry".
Sometimes buyers are looking for a nice home in the country and they don't want to be upcountry - Kula, Pukalani and Makawao.  There's a couple of alternatives on this side of the island: Wailuku Country Estates just on the outskirts of Wailuku, and Kahakuloa which is a little further out the Kahekili Highway.

home: A little shack in the jungle on Maui - that's all I want! - 01/21/17 05:52 PM
I hear it a lot from prospective buyers... I just want a little shack in the jungle on Maui.  Nothing fancy, just a roof over my head.  With some land to grow some veggies, and a few fruit trees.  Maybe a stream would be nice too...

Plantation style home with jungle foliage
Well it's not that easy to find, but be prepared to pay $400,000 or more it you do. They do come on the market from time to time, but I can tell you they won't be this cute and adorable.  Chances are pretty good you'll need to pay with cash due … (13 comments)

Paia Fishmarket has consistently good food, great fresh fish!
When it's time to eat lunch or dinner in Paia Maui, the Paia Fishmarket restaurant can be counted on for good fresh fish and other choices. I tend to always get this delicious Ceaser salad with grilled mahi mahi or ono, but often find myself eyeballing other plates as they come out of the kitchen.  I haven't tried all of the dishes, but judging from the happy faces at the family style tables, it's all good!
Seating is casual, at the long tables and benches, and sometimes it's hard to get a seat when … (9 comments)

This email scammer might be contacting you next..
When you know it smells fishy, it's not that hard to Google the email address, phone number, name, or even the whole message.  Sure enough, this was a stinker.  Watch out for Andrew Becker and his emails coming your way next.
I did reply to Andrew, as that's what we do, and I haven't heard back from him yet.  Just a few simple questions to help me help him. But maybe he already found somebody on Maui to assist him in buying a new house!  Good luck Andrew.

Aloha Friday from Haliimaile General Store in Haliimaile Maui



You can be sure of a great meal when you visit the Haliimaile General Store (which is really a top notch restaurant) in this quaint village just below Makawao.  It was once a general store when this was a company town in the heart of pineapple country. Pineapples are still grown here and now they use them to make vodka!
Call them at 808 572-2666, or just drive over there and make yourself at home. Try one of the designer cocktails. Cheers!
