north shore: Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui - 01/30/19 01:00 AM
Everybody loves a sea turtle on the beach - especially on Maui
In the past few years the sea turtle populations have really made a big comeback here on Maui.  These turtles were recently seen at Ho'okipa Beach Park on Maui's north shore, and snapped by Carlos Jabour while on vacation.
Visitors to the island love to stop and watch them and take pictures.  The turtles really don't do much, just lay on the beach, and come and go as they please.  They get a chance to rest on the sand and catch some rays, just like the tourists who flock here each … (22 comments)

Double rainbow videos from Haiku Maui Hawaii
North shore Maui double rainbow from Maui Hunter on Vimeo.
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.

north shore: 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)

Haiku Maui HI 96708 - vacant land market update Feb 2018
Here's a quick report of the real estate market activity in my part of the island, Haiku. It covers a large area and there is so much diversity that it's really hard to make any comparisons, but if you follow the market you might find some interesting bits. At this point, it looks like sales volume is up from last year, and maybe even prices are up. Obviously there is a lot of inventory of large parcels and expensive parcels.  If you can afford these prices, there are some really great … (4 comments)

Sammy Hagar's Maui oceanfront home sells - $3,100,000
While I'm on the topic of celebrity real estate on Maui (see previous blog post about the Maui Brando Estate), it's notable that the oceanfront property of Sammy Hagar just closed a few days ago after being on and off the market for many years. $3,100,000 seems like a pretty good price for 9.8 oceanfront acres with a house and cottage, swimming pool and cabana, a well and solar power system!  This is the kind of property where you can be self sustaining.

The Brando Estate on Maui is back on the market, and listed with Hawaii Life Real Estate.
480 Puniawa Rd. is currently listed for $2,375,000
A little of the back story:  Marlon Brando bought this 26.7 acre property when it was raw land, because he could appreciate the privacy and beauty of this north shore location.  (Haiku Maui is a great place to live for those who don't care for the city life, or gated subdivisions with rules and regulations.) In 1997 he sold the land to a couple from Alaska and they built this 2-story pole home.  As time passed and the … (4 comments)

We are very lucky to live close to one of the best fine dining restaurants on Maui, so whenever possible we love to have an early dinner or late lunch here at Mama's Fish House Restaurant.  During the daytime the views are just beautiful from this oceanfront setting, and when you have a front row table this is as good as it gets.

On this afternoon the air was very clear and you can see the island of Molokai way off in the background. There's a little sandy beach … (15 comments)
