Aloha Friday from Haliimaile General Store in Haliimaile Maui You can be sure of a great meal when you visit the Haliimaile General Store (which is really a top notch restaurant) in this quaint village just below Makawao.  It was once a general store when this was a company town in the heart of pineapple country. Pineapples are still grown here and now they use them to make vodka! Call them at 808 572-2666, or just drive over there and make yourself at home. Try one of the designer cocktails. Cheers! Find a great home to buy in Makawao Maui. Georgie Hunter R(S) e-Pro, Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers 127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779 direct: 808 283-0635

Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum is made on Maui Did you know Maui has a distillery in Haliimaile, a former pineapple plantation town?  They make rum and vodka here at the Haliimaile Distilling Company, using pineapples and sugar cane grown locally!  One of the products is Sammy Hagar's Beach Bar Rum.    You can take a tour of the plant, and visit the tasting room/gift shop for some unique items. This can be a highlight of your visit to Haliimaile if you're stopping by the Hailiimaile General Store Restaurant. Haliimaile is located just below the town of Makawao, in the upcountry region of east Maui. This little village has such a great location between Haleakala Highway and Baldwin Ave. but it's easy to miss. Maui celebrities on Pinterest  There's not a lot of real estate for sale in Haliim...

Pottery workshop at the Hui Noeau - my dad's hobby on Maui Yesterday I showed you the great looking main house at the Hui Noeau. On the lower end of the grounds is the pottery workshop and studio. It actually consists of the old facility which is housed in the former horse stables, and the newer facility which is nearby and accessed from Kaluanui Road. Here's the new building which is where the classes are held, and the pottery is thrown or built. Once the items are ready for firing and glazing to move over to the old building.  They have sensibly installed a nice array of solar panels to help with the cost of running the electric kiln. The old building is really funky and rustic, I guess you could say. Since making pottery is a messy business, it's okay to make a mess here. Some of the...

The beautiful old Hui Noeau on Baldwin Ave., Makawao Maui The Hui Noea Arts Center ~ Makawao Maui HI How can you not be enchanted when you drive up to this grand old estate on Baldwin Avenue just below Makawao town in upcountry Maui? Once a private home it's now a thriving arts center and school.  This is where my 93 year old dad likes to come and do his pottery, at their pottery facility on the lower grounds. He's been coming here for years as the membership is very reasonable.  Besides the pottery, there are classes on painting and drawing, jewelry making, and more. In the summer there are programs for the kids too.  The "Hui" is a wonderful addition to the community of Makawao.  Are you looking to move to Makawao and be part of the community too? Can I help you find a home in the are...

The down side of a hurricane event on Maui - new appraisal needed? While we didn't suffer much damage here on Maui from Hurricane Iselle, some areas had power outages and trees down.  Ulupalakua Ranch suffered some serious damages, with buildings knocked down and miles of fencing wiped out. Olinda Road in Makawao seemed to be the worst on the windward side, with some eucalyptus trees knocking out a pole or two and closing the road. We were spared any loss of life and serious property damage in Haiku.  Hurricane Julio was a no-show, to everyone's relief.   If you were in the process of getting a loan to buy a home on Maui, then you might not be so lucky.  Some lenders will now be requiring another appraisal to prove that the house is alright.  This can be a delay to final loan approval, ...

Two new listings over the weekend - pounding in the Hawaii Life signs These new Hawaii Life yard signs are really great.  They come apart and go together quite easily and they are lightweight.  It's hollow plastic but looks like a solid wood sign post with the hanging sign below.  There's a substantial ground stake that I can pound in myself with a good sledge hammer, and then just slip the sign over the stake and voila!  Plastic and aluminum... that's what works here in Hawaii, in the sun, wind and rain. 18 Ohia Lehua Pl., Pukalani Maui HI, 96768 ~ $1,069,000. 3BD/3BA single level custom home with views.

What does rooftop solar mean for buyers and sellers on Maui? If you're shopping for a home on Maui you'll notice that many have photo-voltaic (PV) solar panels installed on the roof.  This is being seen more and more, as homeowners seek ways to lower their monthly costs.  With our high electricity rates here in the islands, rooftop solar can really make a big difference over the course of a year, with net-metering. The Pottery Studio at the Hui Noeau in Makawao has installed PV to lower their electric costs. Search for a home in Makawao Maui Some companies, such as Rising Sun Solar, will install a system that enables the homeowner to pay for it on a monthly basis, making it a leased system until it's paid for.  Of course a person can also choose to pay for it outright.  In either case, ...

It's a beautiful home in Makawao Maui, so why is it abandoned? I've seen this house in Maui Uplands the last time it was on the market and it was such a nice home, with great views!  It sold quickly for $1.1M in October of 2005. As I drove by 61 Ulana Street the other day I was wondering who lives there now, only to see signs of neglect in the driveway.  Then I spied the notices taped to the front door... uh oh that's not a good sign. Sure enough the house was abandoned and the locks had been changed.  Another foreclosure that will come on the real estate market at some point in the future, but we don't know when.
