Live-cam set up at 320 Hanauana Rd, Haiku Maui HISo this 2 acre lot is for sale and it's hard to see it if you don't live on Maui.  The seller had a brilliant idea to install a live streaming camera from his house next door so potential buyers can appreciate the sunrise and moonrise views over the ocean.  Take a look and let me know what you think...That's the lot for sale just past the banana plants - the grassy open space where you might see a few goats grazing.320 Hanauana is zoned Agricultural and you can raise some farm animals, grow some fruit trees, and live very sustainably, right here on the best island in the world.Can you hear the birds singing?  It's a very quiet location out in the countryside along the road to Hana.  On days with big surf you might even be able to hear the...

My jade vine is flowering for the first time!We planted this tropical jade vine 2 years ago, just as the pandemic was becoming the big news of the day.  It was a skinny little wisp of a vine in a flower pot, wrapped around a stick of bamboo - so frail and delicate that I wondered if it would survive.  Of course, in Haiku Maui it's hard NOT to grow anything, so I was confident it would be okay.We found a home in the ground where it could climb up some mock orange bushes, and waited, and watered, and waited some more.  The tendril climbed into the tree and kept going up and up - grew a few leaves and that was it.  Finally, earlier this month I looked for some flowers, and was pleasantly surprised to find 3 long dangling "flower" strands that I hadn't noticed before.  They're about 15" lon...

Firecracker heliconia in Haiku Maui - tropical flowerSpeechless Sunday?  Perhaps.  Beautiful tropical flower - definitely.  All that lovely lush jungle just grows and grows and we don't have to water it or tend it much... just hack it back from time to time.  And we are greeted with these delightful blooms every year.Haiku Maui is about as sustainable as it gets.  With plenty of rain, we never have to worry about wild fires or droughts.  We can grow food crops all year long.  Our air is some of the cleanest air on the planet.  The climate crisis has been really easy on us!Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers26 Baldwin Ave, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: ...

Planning a trip to Maui?  Don't take the Hana Highway!Almost everyone who comes to Maui as a visitor used to be encouraged to take the "road to Hana" for a once in a lifetime experience. It's famous for the 52 or so single lane bridges, stunning vistas, tropical jungle and white knuckle hair-pin curves.  But that was then and this is now...First of all, you may have to pass through the National Guard checkpoint at Twin Falls, where they'll ask you what your business is.  Are you driving to Hana?  Is it absolutely necessary?  If you're driving a Mustang or Jeep, it's probably not that important that you proceed.If you decide to continue on your journey, be prepared to encounter lots of opposition, and not many smiling faces like in the old days.You might find this guy near the start of t...

Take a quick drive up Awalau Road in Haiku MauiIt won't take long to drive the mile or so from the famous Hanzawa's Store to the end of the road.  It's a charming little country road with tall trees and tropical plants lining the road.Today we were helping a friend with his little cattle ranch (17 acres) so I decided to film some of the drive to help show you what Awalau Road looks like.  This is really the country - with small and large farms, some beautiful country estates, and some simple homes too.For anyone looking for a peaceful lifestyle where you can really sprawl out and do your own thing, this part of Maui is the right fit.  It's very laid back, with a mix of people who love their privacy, love to be with nature, and maybe own some horses or other livestock.  You can usually f...

Colorful tropical ti leaves in the Maui sunshineWhat can I say, it's Monday and sometimes a little lightness is required.  These are ti plants, and the leaves are called ti leaves, but not the kind you make a drink from.  The leaves have many uses here in Hawaii and almost every yard will have some growing.  They say it's good luck to plant one at every corner of your house.  You can't really have too many because they are useful for cooking, serving food, decorating, making lei and other crafts, and more.  With a wide variety of colors and sizes, it's fun to collect many different types in your garden.  Rugged and easy to grow, they can take a lot of abuse and still be healthy.Learn more about TI PLANTSGrow your own ti leaves in Haiku Maui after you find a home to buy. Thanks for readi...

Getting creative with driftwood and junk in Haiku Maui. What do you get when you take some driftwood, corks, and heavy guage wire?  A fun fish to hang on the wall!  A neighbor had a driftwood party and invited a bunch of us over to get creative.  She went to a lot of bother to gather piles of driftwood, and soak it and dry it to get rid of any creepy crawlies.  We were inspired with all the woods, scraps of wires, rocks, shells, and other fun things to put together.  Glue guns, power tools, drills and what not were all available, with experienced helpers to show us how to use them.  It was a fun party, and great way to get neighbors together on a weekend.  Of course food and adult beverages were also in good supply, and the chatter was lively.  Everyone had so much fun being creative an...

Tis the season for shell ginger flowers on MauiThese lovely plants like to show off their beautiful blooms at this time of year, in the Hawaiian Islands.  Shell ginger, like others in the ginger family, do well in a warm tropical garden, so you know they love to thrive in Haiku.  No irrigation needed if you plant them in a suitable spot.It's a tallish plant and these were at eye level, making it easy to admire them.I snapped this pic while touring some Maui homes for sale last week.  This flower was seen at Maluaina Place, a quiet street in Peahi, a part of Haiku.  See some other new north shore Maui listings and learn more by clicking this link.Read more about Maui on my MauiHunter Blog here. Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  L...

 Aerial shot of Huelo and Waipio Bay on Maui's north shoreHuelo, Waipio, Honokala - Haiku Maui from the airIt's a big wide shot of this beautiful coastal scenery along Maui's north shore.  You won't see this from the Road to Hana, but with a drone flying camera it's possible. This is the coastline on the top of the eastern flank between Paia and Keanae, showing the typical terrain of seaside cliffs punctuated with mountain streams in steep gorges.  The land drops away quickly offshore as well, making for deep ocean currents just a short way out.We love it here because it's just a more natural way to live, surrounded by all the greenery, ocean breezes, soft rainfall, with ocean views and forever blue skies. The climate, the food, the friendly people, I could go on and on.You might have a...

Pickled mango - a summertime treat in HawaiiWhen mangos start hanging heavy off the mango trees in Hawaii, thoughts turn to making pickled mango.  You can only eat so many fresh ones (and that's a lot of mangos), and what can you do with all the rest?These were made in Haiku Maui and sold by the side of the road.  Just another great reason to live on Maui.How do you make this summertime treat?Cooking Hawaiian Style will tell you how to make pickled mango.Thanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let me help YOU.Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers26 Baldwin Ave, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635
