When they gonna fix those roads in upcountry Maui? 
Ask the Mayor!
That was a question for the Mayor of Maui and his answer is in the Maui News.
---> The improvements are coming soon - on some roads that really need it: Upper Kauhikoa Rd and Kaluanui Rd in Haiku.
We look forward to better driving conditions in Haiku, Makawao, and Pukalani.

This crispy whole fish at Mama's Fish House was a special of the day a few weeks ago, and was it ever delicious! With the side of Asian style veggies and coconut rice, it really was too much food - and that doesn't happen often for me.

Apparently the trout are raised on a farm in upcountry Maui, in Kula.  I had no idea!  Perhaps a visit to the fish farm is in order.

Survive a tropical storm or hurricane with an off-grid home on Maui - and come out smiling.
Disclaimer - it's not about building materials, but more about lifestyle.
During this past Hurricane Lane event that happened in Hawaii in August, it was a good feeling knowing we were completely prepared in so many ways.  Strong winds knocked down trees, which knocked down power lines, causing loss of electricity for thousands of homes. In at least one location a water line was busted when the roadway collapsed, resulting in no water service to a number of homes in Haiku.  Power and water loss are … (3 comments)

search: What is a Non-Warrantable Condo? And why you should care….. - 08/20/18 07:33 PM
 This article is copied from an email newsletter by Alan Van Zee of Hawaii Mortgage Company.  If you're looking for a lender in Hawaii, send them an email or call.
What is a Non-Warrantable Condo? And why you should care…..
This designation is important to anyone who is interested in buying, selling, or refinancing a condo.  In short, almost half of the people out there should pay notice.  If a condo project is determined to be non-warrantable, it could lead to difficulties in obtaining financing.
 
Let me first tackle where the term non-warrantable comes from.  When a lender sells a loan to institutions such … (7 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)

Have you ever tried one of those Brazilian Steakhouse events that are becoming popular these days?  The Four Seasons Resort in Wailea Maui is now offering this on Friday nights, at their Duo Steak and Seafood Restaurant at the pool level.  I had the opportunity to try it out with a group of YELPers.  It's indoor/outdor seating with a view of the pool and the sunset, in an oceanfront setting.  We were treated royally, as you would expect from a 5-star hotel on Maui.

Olinda is a region of upcountry Maui that's located above the town of Makawao.  If you drive up Olinda Road from the crossroads with Makawao Ave. you'll go up past the Oskie Rice rodeo grounds and Seabury Hall campus.  It's a delightful drive along a winding road that climbs higher and higher amidst towering eucalyptus trees and open pastures.

A quick condo sale in Kihei Maui makes my weekend!
I'm not usually one to brag about my sales, but this was a really quick one by Maui standards.  With only 2 opportunities to show the unit, due to heavy bookings, it was amazing it went under contract so quickly and sold in just 65 days.  It could have been quicker but there were some delays due to buyer and seller being on the mainland and both were doing 1031 exchanges.
