Aloha Friday - beautiful tropical flowers for you from Maui I know, I know - more pretty flowers from Maui - it's not the first time I've posted such things.  But it's quick and easy and these were just taken 2 days ago while touring homes for sale in Upcountry Maui.  They are so big and beautiful and believe it or not they get good "Google juice".  It's Friday night and I have a date with my hubby, so this is all you'll get for now.  See you soon with more updates and pretty pictures from Maui and the real estate market over here.ALOHA FRIDAYThanks 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 Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635

My sign got featured in a Real Estate story on theClose.comAnother Realtor emailed me about the sign in this story, and I had no idea what they were talking about, so... went to the website to see what the big deal was.Funny thing though - the picture is a post from Instagram a few years ago, at a listing in Pukalani Maui.  The story claims it's a sign with magic techno powers!  They said "This pretty looking sign sitting in the bushes above? Be careful, it just might beam a message to your phone without you even knowing it!"Whaaaat? - it's just a plain old sign hanging from an L post that's set on top of a ground stake.  But thanks for the free publicity!Find a home for sale in Pukalani MauiThanks for reading my Maui blog...Buying or selling real estate on Maui?  That's what I do.  Let...

Kula 200 is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Upcountry Maui, situated where Pukalani meets Kula, and technically it's in Pukalani but it sure feels more like Kula.  Street names in Kula 200 include: Aulii Drive; Aulii Place; Poha Place; Lealea Place; Hoopalua Drive; Welina Place and Alokele Place.Lots of space:  This subdivision was created in the 1970's as an Agricultural subdivision to allow owners to build a house and cottage on a few acres.  It's well thought out with underground utilities and winding roads which give it a nice country feeling.  You can see goats grazing and lot of mature fruit orchards as you drive through this desirable neighborhood.  The homes are generally upscale with attractive landscaping.  Not everyone has built 2 homes on their 2 acres, so it's very low...

I've always wondered why there's no goat milk ice cream.  You know, some people can't tolerate cow milk, but sheep or goat milk is usually fine.  Well today I found a vendor at the Upcountry Farmer's Market in Pukalani Maui who was selling goat ice cream!  They make it themselves at Haleakala Creamery, a boutique farm in Kula Maui.  Caramel sauce is their primary product.Of course I had to taste it to see if it was just a little goaty tasting, haha.  But it was no goaty, and it was just like "normal" ice cream. So don't be scared to try some goat ice cream if you get a chance, and especially if you're lactose intolerant.Not a good time to be buying it on a hot Saturday morning with other chores to attend to, but it will soon be available at local stores such as Mana Foods in Paia, where...

Polo ponies and family fun for Halloween in Pukalani MauiAs a follow up to a previous post, I promised more pictures from the upcountry Maui polo field.  On October 31, 2016 the polo match was moved to the drier venue at the Manduke Baldwin field in Pukalani due to muddy conditions at the Oskie Rice Arena in Makawao.  The event was a benefit for the Children's Cancer Society here on Maui, and was well attended by local residents and visitors.  It was a beautiful and sunny day, with a few food vendors set up selling refreshments.  A silent auction was underway to raise more proceeds for the charity.  People bring their own chairs and shade, or tailgate to watch the action.The first match was for the small kids, with the little ones being led around on the ponies so they can experience th...

Just going over some pics from last weekend and this was too good to pass up.  At the polo match in Pukalani Maui, this very skinny horse was spotted.  I guess it's a light eater, so cheap to keep.  Luckily all the other horses were well tended and looking pretty sharp.More pics from the polo field !Find a home for sale in Upcountry Maui - Pukalani real estate for sale in the Maui MLSThanks 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 Brokers127 Hana Hwy. #G, Paia HI 96779E-mail or call/text: 808 283-0635 SaveSave

I just sold this amazing home in 2691 Ulilani Way, Pukalani, Maui. My buyer was looking for two properties to complete their purchase on a 1031 Exchange.  The first property was an oceanfront condo in Kaanapali Alii. Beautiful unit with sweeping oceanviews.    So we moved on looking for a home to buy on Maui.  Finding the right home, that is in really good shape so there is not a lot of repair work was at the top of the list. After looking at a number of homes, my buyers decided on a home in Pukalani.  Pukalani Maui offers a short ride to town, a community center, with tennis courts and pool.  There are also local schools close by and a number of restaurants to choose from.  Also close to the beach.You can browse homes for sale in Pukalani from my website.

Just an update of the Pukalani Terrace Center in Pukalani Maui Hawaii with some pictures to show what's available for shops and services as this convenient Upcountry shopping center.At the north end closest to the Old Haleakala Highway you've got the recycling and redemption center where you can bring in your bottles and cans for cash, or drop off your carboard, plastic, glass, etc. for recycling.Also at this end is Ace Hardware and the Bank of Hawaii.  You can plug in your electric car here while you do some shopping or banking, and I think it's still free to charge up.In the middle of the shopping center there are many restaurants and services. You can dine at: Mixed Plate:  808 572-8258 Subway:  808 572-9999 Wei Wei Barbecue:  808 573-8838 Farmacy Health Bar:  808 868-0443 Pizza Hut:...

The Farmacy Health BarGet a great healthy lunch or cold drink at the Farmacy Health Bar in Pukalani Maui. This hip new restaurant at the Pukalani Terrace Center will serve you up some organic and locally sourced healthy food.  Pukalani Terrace has a good variety of places to eat and they'll let you sit outside on the sidewalk, which can be pleasant.  Not long ago Fat Burger was in this spot, but I guess they didn't last long.The Farmacy menu offers sandwiches and salads, hot bowls and soups, fruit juices and smoothies, and acai bowls filled with fruit.  "Let food be thy medicine"Try the kombucha bar - these lightly fermented beverages are quite popular on Maui and you can mix and match flavors such as lilikoi, pineapple/ginger, melon and Kula strawberry.  It's supposed to be good for yo...
