  There's a brand new condo development in north Kihei, Maui, right across from the popular windsurfing beach, next to Ohukai Road.  There are 112 units located in 22 two-story buildings, and some of them are already occupied while the final ones are being finished. This project has a pool and rec center, as well as plenty of open space for kids to play. Kai Makani Beach Villas is a pet friendly complex geared towards owner occupants, and vacation rentals are not allowed. Prices range from $525,000 to $725,000 fee simple. Due to strong demand when they were offered a few years ago, most of them have sold already, but there are a few available today.  This picture is taken from the living room of a second floor unit, overlooking some of the green space.  This unit was being offered for o...

Recently my husband and I decided to remodel the bathroom.  We feel so fortunate to own Maui real estate and we would like to maintain our property as best as we can.  This should be easy, right?  So we demo'd it,  removing the extremely heavy cast iron tub, all the tile, even the Sheetrock.  Off to the dump we went in the pickup.  Well The Maui landfill is extremely windy, I'll bet 30 knot winds on that day.  There was rubbish flying everywhere and I felt completely contaminated when I was finished!My husband framed in 2 sweet archways and did all the Sheetrock work, he hung new Sheetrock, taped and mudded then he got the hopper out to spray the texture.  We must have mixed the texture mud too thick and it came out in spurts and blobs, I couldn't watch, I had to leave. It was a disaste...

According to the statistics provided the REALTORS Association of Maui, the median price of a condo in Kihei jumped 20% to $429,500 for the month ending 8/31/07, compared to the same month a year ago.  Compared to just a month ago, the median price rose 7%.  The number of units sold increased by 45% in the month of August 2007 compared to a year ago in August 2006.  Condos have largely been a popular choice for homeowners in Kihei.  As a tourist hot-spot, many people choose to purchase a condo in a complex that allows short-term rentals where they can stay while on vacation and rent it out to other vacationers when off-island.  Some lucky folks call Maui their second home and choose to buy a condo for its low-maintenance appeal and live here part of the year, while others purchase for pu...

 I LOVE living on Maui and here are my top ten reasons why:1.  Starting out my day by snorkeling at one of the best spots on island, near La Perouse Bay in South Maui, where the water is clear and the assortment of marine life is amazing, from butterfly fish and octopus, to sea turtles and eels.2.  Sitting on the beach and watching the humpback whales play in the water during their annual migration to the Hawaiian waters.3.  Watching gorgeous sunsets from the beach, living room window, or favorite restaurant.  4.  Wearing summer attire year round.  No need for winter coats (unless you want to watch the sun rise from the top of Haleakala)!5.  Living among the friendliest people I've ever met.6.  Gazing at the Milky Way in the clear night sky from my patio.  7.  Living within walking dist...
