I've often seen these strange looking trees growing in Kula Maui and wondered what they were, until I learned they are members of the aloe family.  You can find them growing upcountry in the cooler climates such as Kula and Makawao.  Apparently you can grow them easily from a cutting that's been allowed to dry out for a week or two first.  They prefer a dry well drained soil on a slope, which explains why they like the Kula region.Looking for a home for sale in Kula?

Extreme sports video alert! We were lucky to pull up to this scenic viewpoint just on the edge of Polipoli State Park in Kula Maui one day, as the paragliders were getting ready to launch.  They get in position and pop their kites up so fast you can blink and miss it.  Luckily I was ready with my iPhone camera for this guy as he got ready.  With some help from his buddy he got positioned, and off he went into the clouds!  You won't catch me doing that!Paragliding by Polipoli State Park on Maui from Georgie Hunter on Vimeo.Wow - that's pretty extreme.  If you're looking for some action like this, head up to Polipoli Springs State Park in Kula on a clear day before it's gets clouded up.  It's a long drive and you'll end up way above the clouds, so bring some warm clothing.

All Things Beautiful in Kula Maui can be just about anything in the Kula region.  Kula is such an amazing place to call home on Maui.  I been working on a home in Kula that my buyers are purchasing.  One of the things that makes a real estate transaction go smoothly, is when both the buyers and the sellers are wonderful people.  The sellers have been farming their half acre home for over 40-years.  The property has fruit trees, and beautiful tropical flowers like these Protea's One of my favorite things to do is to take a drive up to Kula in the spring with all the Jacaranda trees in Bloom.  Kula just has such rich volcanic soil which is perfect for growing just about anything.  Back to my clients new home to be, I was helping the sellers move some encroachments on the property, nothing...

Kula Bistro  on Lower Kula Road, serves up delicious authentic homestyle cooking in Kula, at reasonable prices.  Sandwiches and salads, pastas and pizzas, all done in a creative way with the oversight of head Chef Luciano Zanon.  Come and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in a lovely upcountry setting.This restaurant has changed hands a few times over the years, and this time it's a keeper. The location is really great for people who live in Kula since there's not many places to have a decent sit-down meal.  You'll find them right across from Morihara Store, and there's plenty of off-street parking. There's lots of room for large groups here, and it's also comfortable for just a couple to dine together. Kids will enjoy their own menu.  The waitresses are friendly and come around to chec...

With all the hoopla about the national park service marking its 100 year anniversary, it's only appropriate to post some pictures of our best known Haleakala National Park here on Maui.It's a highlight of anyone's visit to the island, and I would encourage you all to take a drive up there since it's so easy to do. Where else on this earth can you get in your car at sea level and drive up to a 10,000 summit in about 45 minutes?  On a beautiful paved road all the way no less!If you only have a short time, you can see plenty of the jaw dropping vistas without much effort, but if you're inclined to be adventurous, a hike into the crater is an experience you will long remember.  Best of all, if you ever get a chance to camp out or spend a night in one of the 3 cabins, you are in for an incre...

It's Purple Rain upcountry in Kula right now!With all the winter rains and the springtime weather, Kula Maui is blessed with a colorful display of purple Jacaranda blossoms. Each year these beautiful trees adorn the Kula highway and neighborhoods, and drop their petals making a lovely purple carpet underneath.Jacaranda trees are abundant in the Kulamanu and Jacaranda Grove subdivisions, off Lower Kimo Drive.  Homes in here sell for around $850,000 and upwards.  The views are fantastic!Agapanthus, or Nile Lilies, also show thier colors in the spring, bursting with purple and white tufted stalks. People often say "how do you tell the seasons in Hawaii?".  I find that the seasonal flowers and fruits are the best indicator of the changing seasons here in the islands.  It's springtime!Are yo...
