kula maui: Thankful for a new website and my own BLOG! - 11/19/18 05:30 PM
I have my own BLOG!
Our Realtors Association of Maui recently updated the IDX offering for many of us, which now comes with a free Wordpress website.  It comes preloaded and easy to use, so after about a week or two I got a good handle on it and now it's almost a month into the new website and it's going full speed ahead.  My old site was very tired and out dated, as it was a DIY job from about 20 years ago. : (     Things have changed and for the better.
I'm so excited to finally have my … (9 comments)

kula maui: Handicapped or not, let's go paragliding in a wheelchair! - 02/27/17 07:46 PM
Extreme sports video alert!
We were lucky to pull up to this scenic viewpoint just on the edge of Polipoli State Park in Kula Maui one day, as the paragliders were getting ready to launch.  They get in position and pop their kites up so fast you can blink and miss it.  Luckily I was ready with my iPhone camera for this guy as he got ready.  With some help from his buddy he got positioned, and off he went into the clouds!  You won't catch me doing that!

This guy has a great costume all year long, and sometimes it's really hard to see him.  These Jackson Chameleons have become established on Maui and they prefer the upcountry region where it's a little cooler, but not too wet.

Maybe you'd also prefer a home in Kula Maui, where it's cooler and not too wet.

October means pumpkin time at Kula Country Farms, in Kula Maui.  Stop in for the free tour of their pumpkin patch and pick out your own big ones and small ones for carving and decorating.  You can grab a snack and refreshments here because you'll probably stay a while.  It's very inviting and there's lots of parking.
Good harvest.  Look at the variety of big orange pumpkins and gourds for sale!  It's been a good harvest this year and the ground is covered with these fruits of the fall season.  White ones, green ones, striped and spotted ones too!

kula maui: Kula Bistro serves up authentic homestyle cooking in Kula Maui - 08/28/16 06:02 AM
Kula Bistro  on Lower Kula Road, serves up delicious authentic homestyle cooking in Kula, at reasonable prices.  Sandwiches and salads, pastas and pizzas, all done in a creative way with the oversight of head Chef Luciano Zanon.  Come and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in a lovely upcountry setting.

This restaurant has changed hands a few times over the years, and this time it's a keeper. The location is really great for people who live in Kula since there's not many places to have a decent sit-down meal.  You'll find them right across from Morihara Store, and there's plenty of off-street parking.

With all the hoopla about the national park service marking its 100 year anniversary, it's only appropriate to post some pictures of our best known Haleakala National Park here on Maui.
It's a highlight of anyone's visit to the island, and I would encourage you all to take a drive up there since it's so easy to do. Where else on this earth can you get in your car at sea level and drive up to a 10,000 summit in about 45 minutes?  On a beautiful paved road all the way no less!

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.
