wailuku: Kahakuloa Maui market update - great views at the other upcountry - 06/26/18 08:09 PM
There are great big views at Kahakuloa Maui, the "other upcountry".
Sometimes buyers are looking for a nice home in the country and they don't want to be upcountry - Kula, Pukalani and Makawao.  There's a couple of alternatives on this side of the island: Wailuku Country Estates just on the outskirts of Wailuku, and Kahakuloa which is a little further out the Kahekili Highway. 
Views from Maluhia Country Ranches subdivision - lots of wide open space
This blog post will focus on the two subdivisions in the Kahakuloa region: Cliffs at Kahakuloa and Maluhia Country Ranches. It's about a 15 minute drive … (4 comments)

wailuku: It's a wrap - finished filming another TV episode for Hawaii Life - 04/24/17 08:39 PM
Earlier this month I worked on my second episode for the Hawaii Life TV show on HGTV. 
The buyers were a young couple and they had a really good time filming the scenes, and so did I.  The first time around 3 years ago I was very nervous, but this time I was more relaxed.  We did the usual tour of 3 or 4 Maui homes for sale, and got to meet up in some scenic spots to talk about features and decisions.  They're really going to look good on camera and I hope you'll watch the new season this fall.

wailuku: Wailuku Country Estates update, Wailuku Maui Hawaii - 09/21/16 01:24 PM
Homes for Sale in Wailuku Country Estates, Wailuku Maui
Why do people live here?It's a country lifestlye without being "way out there" in the country. You're only a few minutes drive from Wailuku and Kahului, the central commercial hub of Maui, but so far removed from all that busy activity. At Wailuku Country Estates you can have acres of land where you can engage in farming and also have a nice home in a community with like-minded home owners.  Building design guidelines ensure a quality neighborhood that you can be proud of.
West Maui Mountains form a dramatic back drop, and the … (2 comments)

wailuku: The scenery at The Mill House Restaurant at Maui Tropical Plantation - 09/07/16 11:43 AM
I've been hearing a lot about the Mill House Restaurant at Maui Tropical Plantation, so pulled in the other day while driving by.  I wasn't hungry enough to eat but I was curious to see what they have done by way of incorporating some old sugar mill features into their landscape. 
What a surprise to see the creative use of some old huge gears and other interesting machinery.  How did they ever come up with this?  What a great way to preserve a little bit of Maui's history.

One of these days I'll stop in for a lunch or dinner and get … (10 comments)

wailuku: 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)

wailuku: A flotsam angel from the shores of Maui, and more! - 04/23/16 02:35 PM
The Art of Trash show - Maui Mall - Kahului Maui Hawaii
This priceless creation was crafted from plastic flotsam that ended up on Maui's beaches, and featured at the annual Art of Trash show at the Maui Mall. 
Each year artists contribute their works which have been make from stuff that would otherwise be in the waste stream.  Don't you think it's very cool that some people can have a vision to recycle complete junk and make something worthy of keeping?
These art works are offered for sale and it was nice to see that many were already purchased.

Crispy Roast Duck at Wei Wei BBQ and Noodle House, Wailuku Maui
In honor of Chinese New Year this week, and for lack of anything more fitting, here's a picture of the beautiful roast duck with crispy skin, at Wei Wei BBQ & Noodle House in Wailuku. They are at 210 Imi Kala St, near the millyard in Old Wailuku. 808 242-7928
I resisted, but wish I had bought some the other day instead of just snapping the picture!  Next time I will.  From the reviews on Trip Advisor I really missed out an a taste sensation. But the wonton soup was really … (7 comments)

My husband endorses this automotive shop in Wailuku, and that really means something as he's a tough customer to please.

wailuku: Electric vehicle charging station in Wailuku Maui HI - 01/25/15 09:18 AM
Electric vehicle charging station in Wailuku Maui HI
With more and more people on Maui driving electric vehicles, there are more charging stations popping up. This one is located in front of the OLD Maui Court House on High St. There are 3 parking stalls dedicated to electric vehicles only. When I got to this parking lot only 1 stall was being used, but in just a few minutes there were 3 Leaf cars plugged in.

As far as I know all charging stations on Maui are still free, to help stimulate more interest and sales of electric cars (EVs). … (8 comments)

wailuku: Speechless Sunday - Hawaiian Canoe Club at Kahului Harbor Maui Hawaii - 12/19/10 04:39 PM
Speechless Sunday - Hawaiian Canoe Club at Kahului Harbor Maui Hawaii

The other day I took a detour when leaving the bank and couldn't resist stopping at the Kahului Harbor to snap a few pictures.  The traditional Hawaiian hale (building) now has the roof on and it looks so inviting.

There's a great view of the West Maui mountains, with homes in Wailuku nestled at the base.
Watch the YouTube video from here!

The Hawaiian Canoe Club (HCC) has it's home here in the harbor, and there were canoe paddlers out practicing on a beautiful December day.
