video: My Maui newsletter got changed up with videos! - 01/16/20 03:58 PM
My Maui newsletter got changed up with videos! 
I do an email newsletter, and it started a long time ago when I first got into this real estate business, back in 2000 - that seems like ages ago now.  My newsletters then were very simple emails reporting on the new listings that were featured on the Realtor Caravans.  Just plain text, with no pictures or even links, in the hopes that every email would get through.  I have posted them as blog posts here on Activerain (see sample post).
After a while people started replying that they'd like to see pictures of … (19 comments)

Take a tour of 591 Ulalena Loop, Haiku Maui HI 96708.  FOR SALE
This lovely and well built home will appeal to a Maui home buyer who wants to live in the countryside of the north shore, with lush tropical grounds at the edge of the rainforest.  Ocean views can be enjoyed from both floors, and especially from the large covered lanai upstairs off the master suite.  The flexible floor plan with a bathroom on each floor makes it easy for an extended family to have their own spaces.  A shared laundry room on the ground floor connects to the entry hallway.  … (20 comments)

Grateful to be mortgage free after so many years on Maui!
Yes, it really can happen - that mortgage can be paid off and you can own your home completely.  While it seems like 30 years, or even 15 years is such a long time, sooner or later the time passes.  If you've behaved, and not pulled all the equity out of your home, there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
We probably all start out with a 30 year mortgage since it's the most affordable option when starting out on the home ownership track. Those 30 years stretch … (12 comments)

Video at the Maui Aloha Classic - windsurfing contest Oct 2019
Here's a link to a short video taken at Ho'okipa Beach Park, in Paia Maui.  The PWA Aloha Classic was on hold because the waves were too big and dangerous.  This annual competition pits the best men and women windsurfers in the world.  But despite the lack of contestants battling it out on the waves, the beach scene was colorful and interesting, as it usually is.
Thanks for watching.  I hope you enjoy this small glimpse of life on Maui's north shore, when the waves are pumping!

I put together a short little video at at the Peahi Dragon Fruit Farm, a new start up in Haiku Maui.  These fruits are so exotic looking and also very tasty and easy to grow if you know what to do.  My friend let me take the videos and gave me some stems to start my own plants!  I'm really excited to see how they do.
Have you ever tried these fruits?  Just cut them open... it peels … (20 comments)

Loads of fun at the Hunter Brothers Farm and corn maze in Florenceville New Brunswick, Canada.
 We're up in Canada for a late summer vacation, when there's fewer bugs and the nights are cool.  This is a good time of year to be here, and not just because of the weather.  At this time of year there's harvesting to be done, with corn and pumpkins, and potatoes ready to come out of the ground.
At the Hunter Brothers Farm they've turned this into a great opportunity for a family fun park, with farm themed activities for the kids.  The corn maze is the … (18 comments)

Halama St. in Kihei Maui - an oceanfront neighborhood
If you want an oceanfront home in Kihei Maui, the options are somewhat limited, because much of the coastal real estate is taken up by condominium resorts, and beach parks.  South Kihei Road is the main artery along the coastline, and there's a few streets that extend beyond this and offer some neighborhoods with single family homes.  Uluniu Rd. is one, and Halama St. is another.  Let's see what's happening on Halama St....
Halama Street - runs between Kalama Park to the south, and up to W. Kapu Rd. to the north.

Phantom 4 ready for take off to film 460 Hoolawa Rd, Maui
The weather has been pretty nice in Haiku Maui lately so we were able to get the Phantom 4 up in the air for some new aerial footage and snap shots to showcase my oceanfront listing at 460 Hoolawa Rd.  You really need to see this from the air to appreciate the outrageous cliff top setting and the dramatic location.  This little flying camera does a great job!

video: Picking papayas from the tree in Haiku Maui Hawaii - 02/27/19 03:53 PM
Papayas are a favorite tropical fruit around the world.
We are blessed with a bounty of papayas this season, despite the wet winter.  It seems the rich soil from the previous veggie garden has made a big difference.  So I put together a short 1 minute video to show what the trees look like and how to pick the fruits, since many people have no idea where papayas come from.
It takes about a year to year and a half from planting to picking.  To really be on top of things you'd be starting more seeds every year or two to replace the … (7 comments)

My new format Maui newsletter for Jan 15, 2019 
This new version went out today and it features a lot of the year-end statistics for Maui County.... residential and vacant land.  The plan for 2019 is to send out the e-news twice a month.  One time focuses on the stats, and the next time showcases lifestyle.  I think it's going to be more fun this way. 
I'm trying to use more video, and just off-the-cuff live ones with me talking about things here on Maui.  It took a while to get comfortable with it but now I just do a … (8 comments)

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.

Million Dollar Views:  This beautiful oceanfront lot just got an updated video tour on Vimeo so I want to show it off. Every day you can see crashing waves roll in from the cliff top and savor the ocean breezes. Watch whales in the winter months, and look for seabirds soaring overhead. Marvel at the big blue Pacific Ocean that stretches out as far as you can see.
Each oceanfront lot can build a large main house, and a cottage up to 1,000 square feet since the agricultural zoning allows for 2 dwellings … (3 comments)

Short movie at Pohaku Beach Park on Maui, aka S-turns 
Just a short and sweet little movie to highlight another beautiful beach on Maui's west side.  There's off street parking for about a dozen cars, and some picnic tables in the shade.  What a great spot to do a little surfing, paddle boarding, or just get some sun. 
I used the Quik app from GoPro to put this together using a couple of video clips and snapshots.  They make it very easy.
You can find Pohaku Beach off the coastal Lower Honoapiilani Road in the Napili area.

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!

video: Kahului Maui - the Airport Access Road is now open! - 08/28/16 08:54 AM
The long awaited new Airport Access Road has opened in Kahului Maui and it's ready for business, as of July 23, 2016.  This makes it a lot easier to get to the airport, no matter what part of the island you're coming from, but especially from the north shore and upcountry, it will be the first road on your right as you approach Kahului.  If you're coming from south or west Maui, it's get's a little different where Kuihelani Hwy meets Dairy Road, near the Harley Davidson shop.  That's where it veers off and becomes the Airport Access Road.
They're still working out … (7 comments)
