Last night Sublime played at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center (MACC) with their new lead guitar and singer Rome Ramirez.  Rome made for an excellent replacement for the deceased Bradley Nowell. Sublime, now "Sublime with Rome", played most of our favorite classic Sublime songs along with a few new ones.  We think that they [...]

Massage Stories – Maui, China, Bali

By |October 27th, 2010|Hawaii, Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Weddings, Oahu, Saving Money, Travel|0 Comments

THE BEST Maui, Hawaii, USA $85/hour We’ve been testing out massage parlors on Maui for years now.  Most are outrageously expensive (ex. at the big resorts.)  But we just found one that does incredible massages for a decent price.  Massage Maui in front of the Sugar Beach Resort is outstanding. The location is great because it’s easily accessible for anyone on the south side (Makena, Wailea, Kihei), not more than 30-45 minutes from the West side (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua), and a short hop from the North side (Kahului, Wailuku, Paia.)

Wailea Real Estate a Steal

By |October 14th, 2010|Hawaii, Hawaii Economy, Maui, Maui Real Estate, Saving Money|0 Comments

Home prices in Wailea, and the rest of Maui, are low and offer great opportunities for those looking for a second home in paradise. When searching for Wailea homes for sale, we’re finding that prices are finally becoming affordable.  Recently, some of our authors have been looking for new homes (this author included.)  Many of us live in smaller condos, which is great for location and maintenance.  But when you want a little more room, having a larger condo in the Wailea area can make all the difference.  Some of the floor plans we’re seeing are wide-open with a lot more square-footage.  Plus, you can’t beat the neighborhoods in Wailea. […]

Why Molokini Crater?

By |October 13th, 2010|Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Sailing, Maui Scuba Diving, Maui Snorkeling|0 Comments

We often get this question: Why go snorkeling or diving at Molokini Crater when we know for a fact that there's plenty of coral and sea life off the shore? True.  There's a lot of beautiful things to straight off the coast of Maui.  But, when you travel to Molokini, you get a lot more.  [...]

Maui Fires

By |June 4th, 2010|Hawaii, Lahaina, Maui, Maui News|0 Comments

Maui's south and west side are drier than the rest of the island, which will often be the catalyst for serious fires.  In the recent past, we've seen quite a few brush fires flare up in the summer.  Some of these are natural, and others are started by arsonists. As you can see in the photo, [...]

NEW UPDATE: OCTOBER 4th, 2010 Furlough Fridays have been cut down to less days and are now called "Non-Instructional Days".  This should make our uneducated masses happy. Though Governor Linda Lingle never expressly mentioned "Furlough Fridays" in her speech on Friday, she did address the issue of education.  Lingle made it clear that she understands [...]

Hawaii Stand Up Paddle Boarding

By |December 14th, 2009|Hawaii, Maui, Maui Activities, Maui Beaches|0 Comments

If you haven’t already seen it, you will.  Stand Up Paddle boarding and surfing is the latest retro craze.  For years, we we’re reluctant to give it a try because we feel tied to our own roots of surfing (shortboarding.)  But, finally we gave it a shot and rented some boards from Boss Frog’s Dive & Surf in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii in Dolphin Plaza (ask for Benjammin.)
