NOW I remember why I moved to Maui! ... a day at the beach.

Maui beach day at MakenaA Day at the Beach on Maui

Last weekend we celebrated our wedding anniversary, at the Maui Prince Resort, which made us take some time off, and GO TO THE BEACH!  After living here for 28 years, I have to admit that going to the beach is not one of my top priorities any more. Somewhere along the way, other things became more important, like being a homeowner and taking care of "the most important investment in your life".  We have been very fortunate, and have a wonderful home on Maui that needs a fair amount of maintenance... but we enjoy it immensely, and it's worth it.

Meanwhile, back at the beach things remain the same. It was the beautiful Maui beaches that hooked me from the start.... way back in 1978. We camped at a little beach for a whole month, back in the day when you could do that. Each morning we would wake up and jump into the water before doing anything else. There is just NOTHING that compares to a day at the beach.

See the BEACHES along South Kihei Road, and the North Shore BEACHES.

 

What makes the beach so special?sitting on the beach and watching the sea on Maui

  • sand in your toes
  • sun kissed skin
  • salty lips
  • wet hair
  • sound of the waves
  • smell of the ocean
  • fun in the water

So get out there and go to the beach and have some fun.  It will recharge your batteries and make you happy to be alive.  If you come to Maui and get hooked like me - let me help you find the perfect home for you.  Just tell me what you're looking for, I'm listening.

Ronald - yup, but the water's a little cooler, and there's mountains in the background.  Come on over and check it out.

Having lived in Seattle, Mauii was my tropical paradise getaway a number of times in my 20's and early 30's.  Lately I've been to the Caribbean a bunch and just recently decided the Hawaiian islands still rock!  It's time to plan a return trip.  I've been missing it lately.

Vicki - I hope you can make it here too!  You know, the other day I saw a listing with no wall!  It was a fixer-upper, more like a tear downer.  Not so sure about the no doors thing, unless you count those homes with the roll away windows/walls so you can mix indoors and outdoors.

Believe me, I wish I could!!  Just last year, I made it to CA, hopefully within the next few years, I'll go a little farther yet to HI!!  BTW, seeing the mountains, is like CA, gorgeous!  Your right FL doesn't have that, but I do prefer the warmer water temps!!

Ronald - our ocean water is much warmer than CA.  Most surfers/windsurfers/divers don't wear wet suits here.

Water temp fluctuates here in the low 70's to upper 60's in winter and low to mid-80's in summer.  I can't swim in it in winter, although most snow birds (people from up north) love it, because that is about the warmest their water gets in the summer.
