Winter Season in Haiku Maui

 

Kaanapali Maui condos for sale

It’s funny listening to people in the mainland talking about the change of seasons.  On Maui you can tell slightly that winter is arriving.  This year we really had some hot climate, with zero wind to cool things down.  Even Haiku has been dry and hot.  But there has been a shift, the wind is back, and so are the windsurfers at Hookipa Beach Park, this is one of the first signs of winter.

Here is some footage of windsurfing at Hookipa Last winter.

 

This is one of the reasons so many people choose to live in Haiku, mild climate, gentle winds, and winter surf is just minutes away. If you might be thinking about buying a home in Haiku Maui? There are a number of things to consider before buying a home n Haiku.  First would be price, how much is your budget, have you been pre-qualified by a lender.

Buying Homes in Haiku Maui

Haiku Maui is located on the northshore just as you pass Paia Maui, an old plantation town. Haiku is known for lush green valley’s and gentle trade winds that keep days and nights cool.  Not to long ago you would see pineapple trucks rolling down the roads, during the summer harvest, local kids would work in the fields to earn extra money for college, my son spent one summer working for a local family during pineapple summer harvest.  I love the old Hawaiian songs telling stories of days gone by.  Haiku still has that charm of old Hawaii.

Today things have changed, we still have the sugar cane in the fields as you drive past Hookipa Beach, and I love the drive up Haiku Rd pass the Baldwin Estate, an old plantation home that use to be owned by the Baldwin Family.

The northshore of Maui is also a gathering place for people that love enjoying the ocean in many different ways.  Surfing and windsurfing are just a couple of the water sports people enjoy, along with morning walks on Baldwin Beach.

Maui’s northshore draws people from all over the world.  I love the diversity of people and the sports that they enjoy on the northshore.  I was windsurfing yesterday just down the road and was rigging up and talking to a windsurfer from Austria. He was sharing how he love’s Austria, but can’t wait to get back to Maui.  Maui has that effect on many people, and that’s what’s so appealing about owning a condo on Sugar Beach Cove.

Well the Aloha Classic got under way yesterday with excellent conditions at Hookipa Beach Park on Maui.  Hookipa Beach is known around the world for great surf and the windsurfing capital of the world. The best windsurfers in the world are gathering for a twelve day event.  The first day they completed round one, with a couple of Maui local rippers advancing to round three.  Matt Pritchard and Levi Shiver where a couple round one winners to advance to round three.  Monday the surf is expected to get waves in the overhead range and hopefully the winds will come through for some exciting actions as the best windsurfers in the world battle it out for top honors.

With the light winds the surf has been really fun, love getting out early for a morning surf at Hookipa.  So I hope you enjoy the footage I shot.  I will be trying to shoot some more action as the wind and surf picks up.

Luxury Kula Estate Home For Sale (video)

Kula homes for sale in Upcountry Maui.

I really love this Upcountry Kula home located on 2.70 acres of oceanview real estate.

 

This luxurious residence in Upcountry Kula is probably the finest quality Kula home currently on the market. The owner is a contractor and nothing was spared in building this architecturally custom home.  The floors have a water heating system for the winter nights to keep everything cozy.  The walls were framed with 2×6 studs so that the insulation was more effective.  The stone work through out the homes was completed with Italian marble and granite, the bathrooms are a work of art.  selling homes in kula maui
I really like the design of this residence in kula.  it was designed to reflect the extraordinary landscape of rolling hills and sweeping views.  Upcountry Kula has some of the best climate in the world. Perfect weather and rich volcanic soil making it one of Hawaii’s choice places for growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers.

Buying a Home in Haiku Maui

If you happen to be in the market for buying a home in Haiku Maui lets talk about Haiku.  First of all if your looking for mild weather not to hot not to cold you would like Haiku. Now if you enjoy sleeping at night listening to the rain making music on your roof again this might be the place. Some people prefer Upcountry Kula which also is a prefect climate in a different way.

 

buying homes in haiku

Haiku to me represents island living in a tropical setting that remind me of old Hawaii. Myself I live on little under three acres and enjoy being able to grow bananas and papayas.  I love the evening rains that keep my garden and oranges trees sweet and producing.  I raised my four kids in Haiku with my wife and now we have moved on to grandkids.  The life syle in Haiku is a little more laid back than the rest of the island. As they say keep the country country.

selling homes in haiku maui

Another thing that I like about Haiku is it is pretty close to everywhere.  I work out of our Wailea office and in Upcountry Maui Makawao office.  Its a sweet ride to work driving past my favorite surf spot Hookipa Beach Park.  Hookipa is famous for windsurfing and surfing.  Driving to town you have to pass through Paia town.  I love Paia Maui, its a world class destination for many windsurfer, kiters and beach lovers.  Paia is a very unique  old plantation town with a lot of charm. The food is good, and great shopping that brings people to Paia from all over the world.
