I never know what my dear old 94 year old dad will come up with next.  I was visiting him in Vancouver and we sat down to enjoy a plate of seafood with oysters, he piped up with this cute little rhyme from back in his past.  Now I've heard a lot of his stories and poems, and songs because those old memories have a way of sticking, but this one was completely new to me.  From now on I'll never see an oyster without thinking of this tongue twister.

Paia Maui Hawaii 96779 - it's a small market, but it has some very high priced real estate. Currently the starter homes begin around $480,000 and the oceanfront listings start at $4,000,000 and go up over $21,000,000. 
Ocean and beachfront offerings make up about half of the real estate listings market, but not the selling market.  In the past 12 months, out of 38 closed residential sales only 5 were oceanfront totalling over $35,000,000.  While the number of oceanfront sales are low, the total dollar volume was more than half of the total dollar volume for all sales.

Access to West Maui beaches is getting easier with an online database that will be an ongoing project.  Recent attention on this matter has caused the County of Maui to get serious about enforcing public parking spots at the resorts.  Time limits on the public parking zones are also not legal, though some resorts post signs stating the time limits.

You'll find the Kilohana residential neighborhoods in South Maui, right at the edge of Wailea, and on the mauka side of S. Kihei Rd.  Being just a very short walk to Keawakapu Beach makes this an attractive place to live, and many of these properties are second homes for mainland owners. The neighborhoods are fairly new, having been built this century, with underground utilities and a consistent look governed by CC&R's.

Two new listings over the weekend - pounding in the Hawaii Life signs
These new Hawaii Life yard signs are really great.  They come apart and go together quite easily and they are lightweight.  It's hollow plastic but looks like a solid wood sign post with the hanging sign below.  There's a substantial ground stake that I can pound in myself with a good sledge hammer, and then just slip the sign over the stake and voila!  Plastic and aluminum... that's what works here in Hawaii, in the sun, wind and rain.
