Catch the Famous Nutcracker Play this Holiday Season on Maui

Christmas time in the tropics
December 06, 2019

One of the best parts of being a luxury home owner in Maui is having access to so many community events and activities throughout the year. And that is especially so around the holidays. A quick drive around the island and you can melt into the holiday spirit by checking out all the homes decked out in holiday lights and ornaments and you’re sure to catch the vibe before the new year hits. But in case you need some help really feeling like it’s Christmas time in the tropics, then might we recommend attending The Nutcracker this December 20th-21st at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center Castle Theater.

In case you have never heard of the Nutcracker, allow us to fill you in. The Nutcracker is a musical play that is based on the E.T.A Hoffmann fantasy story of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. A young girl befriends a nutcracker that is brought to life the night before Christmas to battle the evil Mouse King. On stage you will hear some of the classic favorites such as Sugar Plum Fairy and be entranced in delight as talented dancers, singers, actors and actresses from the Maui Academy of Performing Arts make their way across the stage.

Luxury Living in Maui Near the Famous Kaanapali Golf Courses

When it comes to owning real estate in the most ideal location on Maui, nothing competes with living close to two of the best golf courses in Hawaii.
November 29, 2019

Here at Maui Luxury Real Estate Team, we value what our island has to offer potential homeowners such as yourself. No matter where you are on the island, your home will always come with a view. Whether that means living Upcountry amongst the rolling hillsides or having glimpses of the pristine white sandy beaches in South Maui, you’re never far from Hawaii’s true beauty here on the island of Maui.

Live where you play!
Ownership opportunities at Kaanapali Golf Estates

But when it comes to owning real estate in the most ideal location possible, nothing can compete with living on or near one of Maui’s top golf courses. One such area that offers just that is Kaanapali, where you’ll be close to two of the best golf courses in the entire state. Home to the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course and the Kaanapali Kai Golf Course, you will be amazed by just how incredible these two greens truly are. Read on to learn more. 

The Royal Kaanapali Course, for starters, is a Par 71 course that stretches along 6,700 yards from the championship tees. The course was first developed in the early 1960’s, 1962 to be exact, and is one of only two Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed courses in the entire Hawaii island chain. This playing field begins at sea level with a par 5 hole that extends more than 500 yards and continues around the captivating Maui shoreline with awe-inspiring views of the West Maui mountains. Legendary golf pro Arnold Palmer once said the 18th hole was one of the best and most challenging finishing holes he had ever played. And just think, you could golf here whenever you wanted if you lived in the area!

The Kaanapali Kai Golf Course is equally as impressive and was recently redesigned. It’s known for being suitable for all levels with smaller greens and tight fairways.

If something catches your eye, then please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you might have about these homes for sale in west Maui. We hope to see you on the green and hear from you soon about all-things real estate related on the one and only Valley Isle. Aloha!

Why You Should Buy Kaanapali Real Estate in Maui Hawaii

Here is why you should consider Kaanapali real estate.
November 22, 2019

In Hawaii, everyone has a favorite island. Some prefer the hustle and bustle of Honolulu mixed with the laid-back vibes of Oahu’s North Shore, while others love the rawness of Big Island’s wilderness and the slow-pace of Kauai. But for us, Maui is No Ka Oi (the best), and there’s no competition. But even on our own little island, there are some places we like more than others, and one of those places just happens to be Kaanapali. We think you should look into buying your next home or condo in Kaanapali and here’s why.

  • The Best Beaches: Kaanapali Beach on Maui is one of Maui’s most popular and sought-after beaches, and it’s no wonder why. White sand, a perfect view of the sunset, plenty of space and snorkeling, what’s not to love? You might think we’re biased but don’t take our word for it. TripAdvisor ranked Kaanapali Beach as the second best beach in America and deemed it the #14 best beach in the world.

  • Top Restaurants: Where else will you have several of the island’s best restaurants right at your fingertips? Nearby is Roy’s, Monkeypod, Japengo, Leilani’s, and Hula Grill. Not sure where to eat? You can’t go wrong with any of these restaurant options and could make an entire adventure out of trying each one out during your stay.

  • The Shopping: Oh, yes. One of the joys of life in Kaanapali are the great shopping options! And there’s plenty of that here. In Kaanapali is Whaler’s Village, where you can shop until you drop at numerous high end shops and boutiques (such as Louis Vuitton, Sephora, and Billabong,) cool down with some ice cream from Haagan-Daz, grab a bite to eat at Hula Grill, take in a free movie during Whaler's Village movie nights, and much, much more.

  • Perfect Location: Kaanapali Beach is located close to so much to see and do on the island. You’ll be a short drive to Lahaina’s Front Street as well as a quick drive to Honolua Bay and many other favorite surf spots on the island. Being able to just hop in your car and cruise to some of the best beaches, shopping, and fine dining around is just another reason why we love this area.

  • The Activities: Whether you’ve been waiting for a lifetime to finally try snorkeling for the first time or are interested in paragliding, paddle boarding, golfing, etc. -- all of that and more is available right here in Kaanapali.

We hope you enjoyed learning about many of the reasons why buying a home in Kaanapali is a wise decision. If you’d like to see what Kaanapali properties are currently available, look at some of our West Maui real estate listings. From the luxurious Kaanapali Alii and Kaanapali Shores to the fantastic condos at Honua Kai or The Whaler on Kaanapali Beach, let our Maui Luxury Real Estate Team help you find the perfect home in Kaanapali for you!

Aloha!
