maui homes: Halloween on Maui - 11/01/17 10:29 PM
Halloween on the Island of Maui
 Maui is big on Halloween, Lahaina front street is like an endless parade.
Spreckelsville Maui is always a rager, with kids and adults dressing up and having fun. Our kids love hanging out in Spreckelsviile, it's the place to be.  Our friends always throw a party with food and candy for the kids.
Many of the homes really get into the groove and fix up their homes, it's so much fun.
So I hope you were able to find the Great Pumpkin, and your bag was full of candy and goodies. If you happen to be looking for homes … (9 comments)

maui homes: Life's a Beach, Thinking About Moving to Maui? - 08/30/17 01:54 PM
Life's a Beach, thinking about moving to Maui.
There are so many reasons I can think of to move to Maui.  First off serious we just have some amazing beaches on Maui. Beaches from Kaanapali, Wailea to the Northshore of Maui.
The island lifestyle is a big draw to Maui.  I find people are ready to give up on the fast pace of life and choose a more healthy and relaxed style of living.
You don't have to live at the beach, there are so many options, like living in Upcountry Maui, Kula offers homes on the slopes of Haleakala.
Living on the beach would … (11 comments)

Maui 4th of July is a very exciting time, lots of events going on, BBQ's and time at the beach.

maui homes: Winter on the North Shore of Maui - 11/28/16 10:13 PM
It's winter on the North Shore of Maui. 
  A good sign that winter has arrived on Maui, is the huge surf that hits Maui on the northshore.  We just completed the Peahi Challenge Big Wave event in 25 ft waves.  It was real exciting watching surfers throw themselves over the lip on such giant waves.  Another sign that it is winter is we just celebrate Thanksgiving on Maui.  I am almost over left overs, had a great time with the family.
 We also just had the Nova Nova Aloha Classic windsurfing contest finished couple weeks ago in pretty exciting conditions.  Windsurfers from around the … (4 comments)
