Friday Afternoon Maui Grab Bag

It has been a busy week which has left limited time for posting on the Maui Real Estate Blog. I thought I would post something of a grab bag of various subjects on another beautiful afternoon on Maui.

As expected, this winter season has seen a lot of activity and interest coming from our Canadian visitors. If you are a Canadian interested in purchasing property on Maui, you may appreciate our International Buyer’s Guide. This helps to give you a primer on the ins and outs of purchasing Maui Real Estate.

Our listing at 77 Nahele Road in Haiku is back on the market after falling out of escrow today. This is a great opportunity for the right buyer with two parcels of agriculturally zoned land in a very unique location all for $399,000. There is a 1.49 acre lot and a 4.25 acre lot. The larger lot has a 3 bedroom/1 bath home in very rough condition. This property has the potential to really shine with a little bit of hard work. Contact us for additional information or to arrange a showing.

Billy came across a pretty cool article on one of the last “almost” intact Apuha’as in Maui. Apuha’as were a form of land division in old Hawaii. These parcels of land ran from the ocean to the tops of mountains in narrow strips. This granted its owners access to resources from through Maui’s varied ecosystems. This article in the Wall Street Journal talks about a 10,000 acre ranch on Maui that includes all but the beachfront element of Apuha’a.

As I mentioned at the top of the post, this has been a beautiful day on Maui. We have had a pretty spectacular winter with lots of sunny skies and big waves. We had a long run of big surf that stretched from early December lost this week. We have been documenting the surf with a number of posts on the action at the Jaws Surf break. I haven’t been able to get out to Jaws of late, but I have seen some pretty cool photos and videos on the web. Here are some links to some of the recent big wave action.

It’s not just men who charge Jaws.

There are also a few surfers who paddle into Jaws without the assistance of Jet Skis.

Those are a few random musings on what is becoming a beautiful Friday evening on Maui. Please feel free to contact us for assistance with any of your Maui Real Estate needs.
