You can see Lanai from here, and Kaho'olawe and Molokini islands From South Maui you can see a number of other islands.  The largest one is Lanai, which has recently gotten a lot of attention since being bought by Larry Ellison in 2012.  Lanai is part of Maui County and it mostly relies on tourism to keep people employed.  There is talk of a third resort to be built on Lanai, in addition to the Four Seasons at Manele Bay and the Lodge at Koele.  I think a lot of good things wil be coming to "the Pineapple Isle" with the input of new energy. Also in view from this spot on Keawakapu Beach are a couple of uninhabited islands.  The larger island of Kaho'olawe has undergone a dramatic restoration in recent years, with the goal of bringing it to it's former state before it was used as a bombi...

Delicious Greek food on Maui at Pita Paradise in the Wailea Gateway Center After living in Vancouver Canada, I really acquired a taste for Greek food.  It's not so easy to find a good meal of Greek food on Maui anymore.  But if you get a chance to eat at Pita Paradise you will swear to come back again.  The pita bread is fresh and soft and delicious.  They make all their own traditional Greek desserts too, so save a little room for something sweet at the end of your meal.

When I am talking about walking on water, it is not the experience that Peter had with Jesus. But in their day if they had stand up surfboards it might have been a form of transportation. Some of my clients and new good friends excepted my offer to a morning stand up paddle session in Makena Landing on Maui. On Maui we call this a board meeting.Sometimes it involves windsurfing, but today its a trip out to visit the whales. We had a crew of about six of us including my wife and we headed out about mile. It was a beautiful day in Makena Maui. We had been out for about half an hour and no sighting. Then we had an eye opener, a pod of whales showed up directly under us.If you have seen the movie life of Pi where there is this giant whale that cruises under their boat and its an amazing mom...

Thinking about hot sunny places on Maui, looking at pictures from Wailea  It was a rainy morning for our Haiku Maui Realtor Caravan, and I got to thinking about sunnier places on Maui... Wailea, Makena, like that.   And I came across some pictures from not so long ago, with the sunny skies and blue water.  Infinity pools and fountains!  Beaches and shopping!  What a way to spend the day.  It's always sunny in Kihei and Wailea Maui, and especially the Shops at Wailea. That's another great thing about Maui, you can always find a nice sunny spot somewhere on the island, where you can kick back and enjoy the view!  Such beautiful oceanfront properties to see on Maui! After a while the sun came out in Haiku, and we only got a quarter inch which was much needed anyway.  Maybe Haiku Maui is a ...

Wailea Makena offer a variety of luxury homes in a number of great neighborhoods.  I was on caravan a couple days ago previewing two beautiful homes.  One right on the water in Makena Place.  Beautiful home with exceptional views from any where in the house.  Makena Place is a gated community with ten house lots right next to Makena Surf condominium. You can search all Makena Oceanfront homes from my website like this beautiful home listed below for more information. Another exceptional property that I liked is in Wailea Golf Estates.  Just listed a beautiful home with panoramic ocean views.  I love the pool and the views that are offered, a great value for a Wailea Maui luxury home. If you have any questions about homes in Wailea or Makena Maui, give me a call.  There are a number of e...

 Power Down And Plug In...To Life! I recently wrote a blog (Do Not Disturb) on how I went off the grid for 10 days in Maui to celebrate 10 years of marriage with my bride. Many said they could never do that; 10 days with no technology or communications back to the office??? Makes me wonder how we ever built businesses in the 1980's and 1990's, or prior, when it wasn't a choice... (my era of beginning my entrepreneurship)? We just announced we were going and then it was Aloha Baby! So what happened to time off? With a proper system and team in place, it's very do-able. Besides, as stated in Michael Gerber's E-myth Revisited, if your “business” can't function without you being there daily, YOU DON'T OWN A BUSINESS, YOU OWN A JOB.” Build a business folks, it's how we're able to enjoy the g...
