Maui 5K Kicks Off This Spring!

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Maui 5K!
February 15, 2019


What’s better than researching homes for sale on Maui? Well for all things real estate, whether it's for oceanfront homes in Kapalua or oceanfront condos, you know to contact me, but for something even better this year make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming Maui 5K! 

The Maui 5K happens every year and is put on by Run For Fitness, a local nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that aims to give funds for local physical education, fitness, play and athletic programs throughout the island. The Maui 5k has been put on every year on the island since 2011 and every year proceeds from the event have gone back to local schools to help fight childhood obesity and assist in enhancing a variety of athletic programs on the island.

As for the upcoming Maui 5K, you should mark your calendars for Saturday, March 2.. Anyone planning on participating should plan to pick up their participation packet between 1pm and 5pm at Adventure Sports Maui located at 400 Hana Hwy. in Kahului. And as for the big day, the race is slated to start at 7 a.m. at the Maalaea Triangle at 300 Maalaea Road in Wailuku the next day on March 3. The 1 mile run/walk begins at 7:15 a.m. with an award ceremony to follow at 8:30 a.m. The finish line will be located near Hauoli St. This is an incredibly fun event that’s great for the whole family and you can even get the little ones involved and have them participate in the 1 mile walk. Don’t be intimidated by the word 5K as there’s other ways you can assist. You might even consider volunteering. Simply visit the Maui 5k website and learn more about why this is an event you don’t want to miss.

I hope to see you in March at the Maui 5K and you consider participating in this incredible event that helps benefit our island keiki. Don’t forget to reach out to me during the spring time as well and let me know what’s on your mind in terms of real estate on Maui. I’m always ready, willing, and able to help you with any questions you might have about Maui real estate. I hope to hear from you soon and have a wonderful rest of your week. Aloha!

Kapalua is Calling

Kapalua is Calling You TODAY
February 01, 2019

Are you researching areas where you want to live before purchasing your next home, condo or investment property? When considering making a large purchase such as a new home or condo, a lot comes to mind. But most importantly, one must ask themselves where they want to live in this world and why. That’s why I think you should consider Kapalua on Maui as the area for your real estate property purchase and here’s why.

Kapalua is a fantastic place to call home. It’s near so many great five-star restaurants, professional golf courses, outdoor activities including tennis and hiking, and, of course, some of the best beaches in the world. Kapalua Bay, DT Fleming beach, Honolua Bay and so many more hidden gems are right down the road from Kapalua. Located along Maui’s west side, you’ll also be a short drive from Lahaina Town, where there’s plenty of nightlife to indulge in. With so many homes for sale on Maui, it may seem intimidating trying to figure out what home or what location will fit your needs. But that’s what makes Kapalua so great. It has everything! You’ll have your privacy, yet you’ll also be close to so much to see and do on Maui. Want access to the great outdoors without feeling isolated? Well, that’s here too! Kapalua is a no brainer for your home, condo or investment property and you’ll be so happy you took my advice.

I hope you enjoyed learning about this fantastic area and consider making your purchase here right away.

Join the Whales Tales on Maui this February

Check out Whale Tales 2019
January 18, 2019

Looking for an amazing event to attend this coming year? If so, then you might want to check out Whales Tales this coming February. Lasting from February 15th until February 18th, this premier whale research and education event will bring together renowned scientists, filmmakers, and conservations to discuss all things whales!

Whales Tales happens every year on the island of Maui and is a four-day family friendly event that welcomes marine experts from all around the world right here on the island. Since 2006, world-renowned presenters have teamed up with the Whale Trust research team on Maui to showcase the latest findings on humpback whales and their environment to anyone interested in learning more about these creatures and their development. Along with providing the public with some incredible educational opportunities, this event has also raised more than $575,000 for whale research. Money raised from the Whale Tales events are distributed to organizations and students to help continue whale research in Hawaii. This coming year presentations will occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons at the nearby Ritz-Carlton on Maui’s west side. Organizers are suggesting a $20 donation to help support whale tales’ selected beneficiaries, which includes researchers and local students. You can find more information about the event and tickets at whaletales.org.
