August 17, 2018


Buying a home or condo on Maui is truly a dream come true for any homeowner. If you’re one of those wise individuals who have decided to retire on this beautiful island in the Pacific then give yourself a pat on the back! You earned it. Now it’s time to look for that perfect little home to settle into so you can spend the rest of your days watching the sunset every night against the beautiful ocean blue. But where to start? Well, don’t worry. I have a listing that I think is just right for what you’re looking for.

This unit at 500 Kapalua Drive is an incredible investment and I’m not just saying that! Built in 1977, this condo has been remodeled and has modern-day luxuries and incredible views. This unit in particular is a top floor vista unit with sunset and ocean views. It also comes with two full baths and tile and carpet floors complete with an island vibe. Both the kitchen and the dining room has been reconfigured and you’ll love the new tasteful decor. This home in Hawaii will be sold furnished so you can enjoy leaning back in the relaxing recliner or having dinner with your loved one on your new lanai. Forget the hassle of having to decorate and simply sit back and relax into your new life on Maui. 

While spending time in your condo will be a great use of your time, you might also want to get out and explore. Lucky for you there are multiple pools on site and you’ll also be an easy walk to the nearby beach, restaurants and shops.

Paddle For Life Kicks off This Fall

Join in on a good cause during the 10th Annual Paddle for Life
August 03, 2018

This October you will have a chance to join in on a good cause during the 10th Annual Paddle for Life here on Maui. Grab your friends and your paddle and sign up for what is sure to be a memorable experience.

This annual event brings together paddlers, cancer survivors, friends, family and more to rally around health, love and happiness in hopes of raising money for the Pacific Cancer Foundation. This local organization is a 501(c) 3 non profit that focuses on providing access, knowledge and support to all those affected by cancer in Maui County. They’ve truly made an impact here on the island and deserve your support!

You can pledge your allegiance by joining the Paddle For Life event on Oct. 6th and 7th at the Hanakao’o Beach Park located at Honoapiilani Highway in Lahaina. The race starts at 12 p.m. and includes a challenging 34-mile round trip excursion from Lahaina to Lanai. Participating teams will race across the ‘Au’au channel where they will spend the night on Manele Bay on the neighboring island. The next day, paddlers will head back to Lahaina where they will gather for a lunch on the beach to celebrate their accomplishment.

According to last year’s Paddle For Life event, over 50 percent of the paddlers that participate are cancer survivors themselves and everyone joining in has been impacted by cancer in their lifetime. This is an emotional event but also one that offers a lot of healing and hope for those who have been impacted by this life-threatening disease. If you’re thinking about participating you can call 808-242-7661 for more information or visit the Pacific Cancer Foundation website at www.pacificcancerfoundation.org

Hi, my name is Jo Dorner. I love the Maui community and hope you will join me in pledging my support for this worthy cause.

So if you’re looking into becoming a part of this special island community and are in the market for some real estate on island, then please reach out to me so I can help you along your journey. With so many options to choose from it may seem challenging but with my help I can get you into a beautiful home on Maui in no time. Contact me today and let’s share in the aloha experience.

The area of Honolua Ridge is a gated community and has spectacular views of the nearby Pacific Ocean.

This area is what is known as agricultural home sites and lots here range in size from a minimum of 3 acres to space as big as 30 acres! So whether you want something small that you can manage or plenty of land to farm on, Honolua Ridge has it all. Another benefit of living here is access to the Kapalua Tennis Garden and the incredible Bay and Plantation golf courses. You’ll be right by your favorite fairway at Honolua Ridge and golfing your favorite courses each day couldn’t be more convenient.

So if you’re looking into building your next home in Maui or are trying to eye out a location with plenty of privacy and breathtaking views, then make sure you consider Honolua Ridge.
