The road to Hana is back in full swing, with waterfallsWe drove the road to Hana, to go to Nahiku, a few days after some really heavy rainfall on Maui.  The waterfalls on the north shore were choked!  Such a glorious sight.  Of course there was no time to stop, so I had to frantically snap shots out the window as hubby did the driving.Well I got lucky a few times and this one really nails it - just another waterfall shot on the famous "road to Hana" on Maui's north shore.  If you come to Maui, you'll probably take this drive, at least once anyway.Aloha for now...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

New listing for sale in Nahiku Maui - it's a jungle out there!No really, it's 3 acres of solid jungle in the middle of almost nowhere, near Hana Maui.  It's also a difficult property to sell due to the terrain, which is steep in places, and low in others, so there is a tendency for flooding in heavy rains. Nahiku Maui is one of the wetter places on the island, and that explains the lush growth of trees such as mango and kukui.  These act as a windbreak even though this is the windward side of the island, meaning there will be a lot of mosquitoes all year round.  I'm not trying to kill a deal, but want any buyers from off-island to understand this location is very unique.  It will appeal to a limited set of buyers who want to be in a remote but beautiful location just minutes from the oc...

The Ke'anae Congregational Church is located on the Ke'anae Peninsula of East Maui. After being built the church was also given the name Lanakila Ihiihi O Iehova Ona Kaua Church. The Ke'anae Peninsula is a large lava rock peninsula just after mile marker 16 of Hawaii Route HI-360 which is also known as the Road To Hana. Construction on The Ke'anae Church began in the late 1850s and was was completed in the early 1860s. The Church is constructed of lava rock and coral. It's in a beautiful and magical location where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. It is surrounded by coconut palms, the dramatic Pacific Ocean, lush jungle, and close to taro fields. It has the feel of Old Hawaii. Whenever we are on the Eastside of Maui we always stop visit the church, we sit in the pews, and reflect o...

It's been a long and interesting process to sell a large parcel of wooded land in Hana Maui.  For most people, this is a remote area, and not a place that is normally thought of when buying property on Maui.  But to those who live in Hana, it's home, and nowhere else on earth compares to the natural beauty and lifestyle of this tropical community by the sea.Everything is ready for closing day on Monday: all documents are signed by buyer and seller loan funds are in place the property is ready to go nothing left to do but record the deed and documents Here in Hawaii a sale is not complete until the documents are recorded at the Bureau of Conveyances in Honolulu, on Oahu.  This means that real estate transactions on the neighbor islands have to physically send the paperwork to Oahu as the...

The Hawaii Department of Transportation, the DOT, wants to demolish the old pier in Hana Bay because it could potentially be dangerous. It's crumbling and falling apart, and could be replaced, but community sentiment prefers to have nothing instead of a publicly accessible commercial pier which would create more boat traffic in the little harbor.kids playing in Hana Harbor, Hana MauiOriginally built to transport sugar out of Hana before the Hana Highway became a viable roadway, it has not been used commercially in a long time.  The pier is still used by local fishermen and kids for recreation, but due to liability risks, will be removed at the estimated cost of about $3,500,000. The Hana Harbor Development Plan was put together in 2011 and addressed the issue of the pier.  Since then it...

Red Sand Beach is one of the unique highlights in Hana Maui, and worth a visit if you are brave enough to walk the narrow trail.  You can find the trail head near the end of Uakea Road in town.  Follow that trail at your own risk and be careful when navigating the steep parts that tower above the ocean.  Just go slowly and don't bring too many things with you.Once you arrive at this beach you will appreciate how lovely it is.  The sand really is red due to the broken down volcanic rock, and it will even be hot to the touch. Keep your shoes on until you get in the water.  Swimming here is fun in the little protected cove.  If you're adventurous, swim out beyond the rocks and do some snorkeling.  You'll see lots of brightly colored tropical fish and you might encounter a sea turtle... but...

Speechless Sunday - This way to downtown Hana MauiHana is not a very big town on Maui and it's one of the most remote from the main city of Kahului, with less than 1,500 people living there.  When you get there you can take the right hand road, Hana Highway, to the downtown business center or the left hand road, Uakea Road, to the bay.  Either way you will enjoy the sights.  Take your time and see it all.Got questions about Maui real estate?  Call the Hunter....Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

The best tip I can give you if you're taking the Road to Hana tour while in Maui is don't sit in the last corner seat on the bus, but you probably already know that one. One of the big highlights for me on the trip was the visit to the grave of Charles Lindbergh. It was odd because we drove past the gates to homes owned by celebrities and had no desire really to photograph them or care about them, but the cow motiff at the entrance to Weird Al Yankovitc's house was pretty. I had my heart set on taking a photo of the burial site of Charles Lindbergh, and views of the cliffs at the water's edge were all beginning to look about the same.  I don't know why I brought it up at the moment that I did, but all of a sudden I asked whether we were close to the grave of Charles Lindbergh. Turned ou...

Thankful for Keanae Maui taro growers who bring us Ono Poi! Saw this truck parked at the blowhole in Keanae the other day.  Gotta love that custom license plate.  The sacks were filled with taro roots.   For those who don't know, poi is the well-loved foodstuff that's made from the taro root.  Taro grows in the paddies in Keanae and Wailua on Maui.  Poi is a favorite food item for Hawaiians and you'll find it in the local grocery stores.   Got questions about the real estate market, about buying or selling a home on Maui?   Please contact me, a local Maui REALTOR.   call or text me 808 283-0635 ~ EMAIL  Georgina M.
