Luxury Homes in Kula Maui Upcountry Kula Maui offers a variety of Kula homes in neighborhoods with ranch homes and farms. The climate in Upcountry Kula is a blend of beautiful country foot hills with a dash of tropical delight.  I recently closed a home in Kula Manu which is a neighborhood with quality homes on 10,000 to 12,000 sqft lots. Whats amazing about Kula Manu is that there are so many homes in this Kula neighborhood that have excellent ocean views over looking South Maui and Wailea Makena.   Other great neighborhoods include Kula 200 with two acres lots in an older established area. What I like about Kula homes is its a lot like an Easter egg hunt.  There are gems tuck away that offer old ranch homes to incredible ocean view properties. Knowing where to find these gems is what ...

Maui luxury homes for sale.  The laundry room of my dreams! As a Realtor I get to see many beautiful homes and it's a nice way to get ideas if I ever decide to build another home.  One thing I have learned is that my dream laundry room has to have certain features and upgrades.  Here's my list: a sink - it just doesn't make sense to have no sink in the laundry room top of the line washer and dryer counter top for folding laundry lots of cupboards and shelves a place to hang up wet and muddy clothes a place to sit while removing boots and shoes rugged flooring that's easy to mop up What else would you have in your laundry room?  A dog shower?  Ironing zone?  Recycle center? This lovely laundry room is attached to a beautiful luxury home for sale in Kula Maui.  The rest of the house was e...

Big views and bigger prices on the Kula Maui Realtor Caravan today Our monthly Realtor event to tour homes in upcountry Kula Maui was well attended this morning.  It was a beautiful sunny day on the slopes of Haleakala, with some small rain showers blowing in around midday.  Up for viewing were 9 homes ranging in price from $1,225,000 to $7,900,000.  To be fair, many of these fine homes for sale come with large acreage, such as 15 or even 22 acres. Take a look at some of these bicoastal ocean views and you'll see what all the fuss is about.  These are looking towards the West Maui mountains and Wailuku/Kahului. Pictures were taken at listings on Kula Highway and Kekaulike Highway.  Let me know if you need more details about KULA MAUI HI homes for sale. Buying or selling a home on Maui? ...

Photos of the Auwahi Wind Farm in Ulupalakua Maui I drove to Ulupalakua to take a look at the new wind turbines which went online here just a few months ago.  As I kept driving I thought I would never get there, but they soon popped up over the horizon.  Actually it's more like Kanaio, and way past the Ulupalakua Ranch Store, but it's all part of Ulupalakua Ranch.  Even though there aren't a lot of homes in this area, the power will supply energy to a lot of homes in nearby Kula.  The 21 megawatt project should provide power for about 10,000 homes! Want to buy a home in Kula Maui?  Start your property search with the Maui MLS. These 8 wind generators have very little impact on the visual landscape as they are in a remote part of the island, far from any resorts or busy roads.  Maui, and...

Jacarandas flowering in upcountry Maui means springtime Every year I am blown away by the beautiful colors of the flowering Jacaranda trees upcountry, and mostly in Kula.  The purple flowers really stand out against the backdrop of the blue or gray skies, but it's not so easy to capture a good photo.  I love the effect of the spilled petals on the ground making a purple carpet. I took a drive out the Kula Highway to Keokea and Ulupalakua just to admire the trees.  What a great day it was, and so worth it. Kula Maui homes for sale, search the listings here. Also of note at this time of year are the baby peaches.  Who would think peaches could grow on Maui?  These one were found at the Sun Yat Sen park in Ulupalakua where there are a few trees which were probably planted by some Chinese p...
