If Europe is taking Roundup off their shelves, why aren't we?Do you wonder why the health of American is so bad, yet at the same time you can walk into any WalMart and see shelves and shelves of toxic products there for everyone to load up into their shopping carts?The European Union is way ahead of us on this front.  They have been banning the use and the sale of it in more and more countries.  How is that we are so slow to react in this country?  Does anyone care that cancer causing chemicals are applied by the ton to our public parks, roadsides and along waterways, let alone massive agricultural operations?Around the world, other countries are also banning products like Roundup which contain the poison glyphosate.  Russia, Sri Lanka, Peru and Argentina are seeing the light and steppi...

Try Pangea - a new restaurant in downtown Haiku MauiWe are so lucky in Haiku with all the great restaurants and food trucks offering such a wide variety of foods when you don't feel like cooking...burger, pizza, Thai food, Japanese sushi, Chinese food, vegetarian, and more. Pangea, Haiku Maui   808-575-5055.The latest new addition we tried recently is Pangea, which took over from Hana Hou, in the parking lot at the Haiku Marketplace, at the intersection of Kokomo Rd. and Haiku Rd.  The atmosphere is pretty much the same as before, with indoor tables and a small bar, along with outside seating and live music.  But the food!  It's a lot more exciting and different.   Some interesting sounding highlights from the menu: Hawaii honeycomb with seasonal fruit, chevre, garlic toast, mustard and...

 Attention Hella M Rothwell & Georgie Hunter in Hawaii I worked on a commercial building project in downtown San Jose California for 11 months in 2015 for a company named Center Glass.When I was working for Center Glass the foreman mentioned a 27 story commercial building they may be working on in Hawaii.When I heard this I mentioned several times to the foreman that if Center Glass landed the project that I would want to work on it.Center Glass should know some time in 2016 if they get the project in Hawaii. And there is a chance that I will be working in Hawaii. I have spoken to both Hella M Rothwell & Georgie Hunter within comments at the ActiveRain network about my chances of working in Hawaii in the near future. And if Robert Vegas Bob Swetz does start working in Hawaii for the Cen...

Are there monkeys on Maui? Yes, at a sanctuary in Haiku!You wouldn't expect to see monkeys on Maui, and you won't see them in the wild, but it's nice to know there is a safe haven for monkeys in Haiku.  The Pacific Primate Sanctuary is home to a number of monkeys that have been rescued from labs, animal dealers, smugglers and tourist attractions. Some of them are endangered species suffering from loss of habitat in a crowded world.

It's time to get back to blogging, and sharing Maui with the world.I have taken some time off in the past few weeks, time off from blogging that is.  Well it's been nagging at me and I'm ready to get back to work!  Many of you enjoy the beautiful pictures of Maui, especially during the cold winter months when you're digging out of snow drifts or driving to work in the dark. Some new listings in Haiku will provide eye candy to tease you about packing up and moving to Maui, or maybe just coming over for a short visit.  These photos are taken in Huelo, a part of Haiku Maui, on the north shore.  Both of them are off-grid properties currently listed for sale with Hawaii Life.  You can get all the details by clicking the links below the picture.  Yes, it really is this beautiful all year roun...

Where do I buy gravel on Maui, and have it delivered?If you live in the countryside, like in Haiku Maui, or maybe Makawao or Kula, you're going to need some gravel from time to time.  I'm talking a truckload, not just a little scoop.  After a rainy season your gravel road might need freshening up.  Maybe you want to improve your Maui property for sale and make the driveway nice, with no pot holes or mud.  Who you gonna call?Earl Calasa  808-572-9361Call Earl Calasa, that's who to call.  Earl and Gigi live in Haiku Maui, and he knows his way around all the little roads of Upcountry.  He can haul your gravel and dump it in a nice pile, or he can even spread it from the back of his dump truck like a real pro!  This guy is the best.Thinking about buying or selling a home or property in Haik...

Haiku Maui - new luxury listings offer some real surprisesLast week was the usual North Shore Maui Realtor Caravan, with lots of great new listings in Paia and Haiku featured and available to tour. We get together and visit the homes and properties as a way to preview for our clients.  It's fun to network and keep abreast of the real estate market.This past week offered up some fantastic luxury homes for sale and it's hard to say which one was the best!  My favorite would be 166 Apuwai St. which had a dramatic transformation from a run-down bank owned "windsurfer hotel" into a absolutely lovely trophy home.  The seller said it took 3 years to create such a well appointed custom residence that feels like a resort.  The results are just amazing and the home was so inviting it was hard to ...

Off the grid land sale in Haiku Maui HI - super good dealJust last week (9/14/15) a really nice parcel of land sold in my neighborhood.  I've been waiting for it to close since I have clients in the same Ho'olawa Point subdivision and everyone wants to know the sale price.  After 3 months of suspense we now know that this 2.9 acres sold for only $445,300.  What makes this lot so special?  There are only 5 lots in the Ho'olawa Point Subdivision, so it's a very exclusive oceanfront development.  A private well services all the lots with potable water.  The ocean can be accessed by a footpath to a lovely little bay with a rocky beach.  This area is completely off the grid regarding Maui Electric and county water lines.  In this case the shared well is a huge benefit if an owner is not read...

Lush tropical landscape in Haiku Maui HI 96708What a delight to see this Haiku Maui property with so many tropical flowers and plants - orhids, bromeliads, anthuriums, gingers, palm trees, bamboos and more.  It's amazing how much variety you can grow on just 2 acres.  The warm humid climate in Haiku is very conducive to the lush growth of all manner of plants.  Some love the shade and others love full sunlight, so try a bit of both. As a Realtor on the North Shore I can see and appreciate a lot of properties with landscapes like this for sale.  A few of them stand out and you can tell the sellers really love living in Haiku, where they can connect with nature so easily. Haiku Maui rainfall is pretty consistent and droughts are very rare.  Gentle trade winds blow out of the north east br...

Haiku Market grand opening - new owners, same great placeWe recently had a change of ownership at the local Haiku Market, in downtown Haiku Maui. This little grocery store has been growing up and filling out over the past 14 years or so, with a great selection of items.  The expansion and remodeling paid off, and they were bought out by the company that owns Foodland grocery stores here in Hawaii.  But you won't be seeing the Foodland sign over the door... it will stay Haiku Market.I was there on opening day, with the shelves packed and the friendly staff all smiling and offering help. It's going to be a great place to shop for food and everyday things.  Find them at 810 Haiku Rd. #143  Call them at 808 575-9291The meat selection offers a lot of locally produced grass fed beef, and othe...

The blue marble tree growing in Haiku Maui HawaiiI have never seen anything like this before... bright blue fruits dropping from a tree in Haiku Maui.So I looked it up, and apparently the blue marble tree comes from Australia, and is very sacred in India, yet here it is growing in Haiku Maui.  Of course most anything grows quite well in Haiku so I shouldn't be surprised.They were on the ground in all stages of fresh and decayed. Once the blue outer covering melts away, the inner seed is revealed.  In India these seeds are called rudraksha and they are sacred because they have some kind of spiritual energy!  They are strung together into rosary beads and incorporated into jewelry.This was all very interesting to learn from just picking up some pretty blue marbles one day while showing a ...

Find a home in Haiku Maui near the Twin Falls hiking trailIf you know your way around Haiku Maui, you'll know that Huelo is a great place to live.  It's close to the ocean, and there's even a few fisherman trails that will get you down to the water for some fishing or diving.  Huelo is lush and green and you know you're in the countryside, not just some suburb.

Here piggy piggy, time to go to market... in my freezer!Back in the old days, pig hunting meant strapping on the back pack and heading out to the forest at the crack of dawn to spend all morning trudging through the woods chasing after those elusive pigs.  Pig dogs would lead the way and chase the quarry to the farthest possible corner of an impossible gulch, and you'd have to catch up and confront the snarling snapping yapping scene before the dogs got ripped up.  If all went well, the dogs would still be alive and unhurt, and the pig would quickly be dispatched and dealt with.  But that was just half the job, and the beast still needed field dressing and packing out...all the way back over streams and mountains, through jungle and tangled undergrowth.  Sure, those old timers did this,...
