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)

maui mls: Rent or buy? This Maui condo example explains it clearly - 06/10/18 04:58 PM
To rent or buy, that is the question:  This Maui condo example explains it clearly.
I am sharing this information provided by Alan Van Zee of Hawaii Mortgage Company Inc.  It really shows how a person is much better off buying if they can afford it.  Here on Maui, single family house prices are high, but there are other options, such as a condo.  The nice thing about the condo market is that most of them are in the resort areas which are close to the beaches and shopping centers.  And, we have a lot of condos to choose from on … (0 comments)

Yellow rescue tubes save lives on South Maui beaches
These bright yellow floatation tubes were installed on many South maui beaches last summer as a way to aid with water rescues, thanks to the Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea.  They have proved themselves to be valuable already and more will soon be installed to save swimmers from drowning.
In January a visiting Canadian woman and another man rushed to the rescue of a woman offshore in Wailea, and saved her from drowning, only to have to dash back into the water to save another potential victim.  With rough seas and strong currents, even experienced … (5 comments)

The Thai Mee Up food truck in Kahului has been doing such good business they now have a second truck serving their delicious Thai food in Pukalani, at the Kulamalu Town Center next to Longs Drugs.

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!

maui mls: Waikapu on 30 - shady picnic tables with a Maui view - 01/30/17 03:19 PM
Waikapu on 30 is a great place for a breakfast or plate lunch, where you can sit outside at a picnic table in the shade, overlooking a beautiful view of Maui's central valley.  You can see the harbor and check out which cruise ships are berthed for the day.  You can also see the other shore at Maalaea Bay where the whales come to spend the winter.  Straight across is the magnificent vista of Haleakala mountain which makes up a large part of this island.

Just going over some pics from last weekend and this was too good to pass up.  At the polo match in Pukalani Maui, this very skinny horse was spotted.  I guess it's a light eater, so cheap to keep. 
Luckily all the other horses were well tended and looking pretty sharp.

More pics from the polo field !

maui mls: Hana pier to be demolished due to unsafe conditions - 10/21/16 10:21 AM
The Hawaii Department of Transportation, the DOT, wants to demolish the old pier in Hana Bay because it could potentially be dangerous. It's crumbling and falling apart, and could be replaced, but community sentiment prefers to have nothing instead of a publicly accessible commercial pier which would create more boat traffic in the little harbor.

Originally built to transport sugar out of Hana before the Hana Highway became a viable roadway, it has not been used commercially in a long time.  The pier is still used by local fishermen and kids for recreation, but due to … (6 comments)

maui mls: Why am I blogging so much about Hana Maui? - 06/03/16 08:39 AM
Because I have a great new listing in Hana... 31 acres of it!
So I'm educating the public about the area and the real estate market in this charming little village called Hana.  Learn more about Hana here.
Hana Maui vacant land market report June 2016.
It's not a big place, so there's only 6 land sales a year.  This makes it challenging to get a property sold, so we have priced it well below appraised and assessed values.  That should make it very attractive to a buyer looking for a large wooded parcel with nice ocean views.

maui mls: Hipstamatic pics from Makawao town in Upcountry Maui - 04/17/16 12:27 PM
Just a quick trip with the Hipstamatic Camera app as we walk through Makawao Maui Hawaii. 
This cool little town has kept in touch with the past by restoring and preserving the old shops and buildings.  The country vibe is alive and well.
Rustic and rusty is OK and makes for a lot of charm in these boutique shops.
Take a break from any activity and grab a bite. Park your bike or horse a while.
It's always fun to poke your head in the door of any of these stores, galleries and restaurants.

Not that many bank owned condos for sale on Maui
You would think there would be a lot of bank owned/REO condos in a resort area like Maui.  Considering there are thousands of condos, I'm surprised to see there are only a few REOs in our MLS.  There are probably still more coming, but for now this is what's available.
Currently there are only 16 of these bank owned foreclosure condominiums for sale, and 6 of those are under contract, leaving only 10 Active listings.

Aloha Friday from the far end of Baldwin Beach, Paia Maui

See the hint of a rainbow over the ocean, out towards Haiku? That's why we drove into Paia for lunch, and to get a little sunshine the other day.
This end of Baldwin Beach is closer to Spreckelsville, and it's great for little kids to swim inside the protected area. It's not so easy to find the first time, but worth it. There were kitesurfers off to the left catching the light breeze.

At this time of year, we could all enjoy a day at the beach on Maui, … (13 comments)
