A Perfect Day at 129 Aleiki

Our office videographer put together a great new video on our beach front listing in the Kuau area of Maui’s North Shore. This Hawaiian Plantation Style Cottage is located right on the bluff above Mama’s Beach. It is a fantastic home base for enjoying all that is offered by the North Shore lifestyle. This video captures some of the elements that could go into a perfect day at 129 Aleiki. Activities featured include reading and strumming the Ukulele on the back porch, surfing and windsurfing at nearby Ho’okipa, heading to Paia for lunch and taking in the sunset from the backyard.

This is just one example of a perfect day at 129 Aleiki. The question is what would your perfect day look like? Do you do a stand up paddle coast run starting at nearby Maliko Gulch? Do you head out to Kite Surf at Lanes or Baldwin Beach? Take a Yoga Class in Paia? Do you paddle out to surf the challenging waves that break right offshore from this property during the winter? Do you make the short stroll down the beach to have dinner at the world renowned Mama’s Fish House? Do you just spend a a lazy day soaking up the sunshine and listening to the waves break? As the new owner of 129 Aleiki, the choices would be all yours.

Cove Park Time Lapse Taken From Island Surf Unit 505

This is a time lapse video that I shot from the Lanai of Unit 505 at Island Surf. It should some of the beach scene across the street at Cove Park. Beach Volleyball, mellow surfing, kayaking and stand up paddling are all easily accessible right across the street.

This vacation friendly condo offers great lifestyle opportunities right across the street. It is also just short walk to restaurants, bars and grocery stores. Maintenance fees are among the most reasonable you will find among vacation rental properties. This condo is easy to show. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a showing. Check out the Island Surf 505 listing page for more information and photos of the listing.

Sixth Annual Naish Maui Paddleboarding Championship

I stopped at the top of Maliko Gulch this afternoon and snapped some photos of the start of the sixth annual Naish Maui Paddleboarding Championship. The race goes from Maliko Gulch to Kahului Harbor along the famed “Maliko Run” on Maui’s North Shore. This stretch of coast is one of the best in the world for downwind paddle runs. Typically, the wind is at the paddlers back. The prevailing wind creates swells that the paddlers are able to catch and ride down the course. Conditions looked grim this morning as the winds were extremely light. The fortunes of the paddlers improved drastically right around race time as a steady wind started to blow along the course. Event organizers were predicting that this was going to be the biggest race yet with as many as 300 participants. Judging by the small armada of paddleboards spilling out of the mouth of Maliko Bay, I suspect they were pretty close to that number.
