Sunrise Haleakala Maui

Do you like to hike? Here is your chance to hike the crater for fee! Drive up to the 10,000 foot high summit just before sunrise where there is plenty of parking. Enjoy the breath taking experience of seeing the sun rise as if it coming from inside the crater itself. You will see how it got its name, Haleakala, which mean, “house of the rising sun”. Bring sturdy shoes and abundant amounts of water because your about to enter another world. The crater is the closest thing to being on the moon we will ever get to be! Provided for us are trails down into the dormant volcano where life becomes a prehistoric place with plants growing no where else in the world. You will most likely see the endangered Nene Geese, the giant Silver Sword, and too much more to mention. Just come and see for yourself! This link will take you to more details about Haleakala www.nps.gov/hale Book your condo at www.aaoceanfront.com and come hike a new experience!

Maui through the past

In my years of living on Maui I have come to believe that this Island I call home is alive. It beats to its own drum. You have a choice to dance with the beat or the beat will smash you! This is obvious with the ever changing stores, construction and infrastructure pushing Maui to progress with the times. But Maui has a way of holding on to its roots; the past is very alive. So many places have been lovingly restored and protected by people who saw the future and what would happen if they didn’t take action. I for one, am very grateful to these Kapuna (elders) for their wisdom and concern for the Aina (land). When you come to Maui, take a hike in Iao Valley and feel the awesomeness of this lush valley containing the only fresh water river that Maui has to offer! If you want to really experience Maui for what she has, talk to real locals (kamaiana). Most are happy to share the old ways to a willing heart & ear. For instance, while on deliberation from jury duty, a Tutu (gramma) taught us how to make roses from Ti leafs. I am always thrilled to learn from our Kapuna. Hope you have the chance to learn something new while you’re here too. There are so many opportunities if you are looking for then. Make your reservation at AA Oceanfront Maui Condo Rentals today so you too can explore what Maui has to offer.

Pineapple in Maui

Every Saturday in Kahului Maui hosts a framer’s Market where we can buy fresh produce grown right here and most is very organic. When you come, plan on coming and feasting on this bounty Maui has to offer, there is so much to learn and taste, for instance, did you know there are different kinds of pineapple? The plant produces fruit once a year for 3 years then dies. First year fruit is what you find in the can. Second is shipped off island for others to enjoy but the very best is the 3rd year, so sweet and juicy! It is so ono (good) that it doesn’t leave the island unless you take it with you! There is also a “red” pineapple. You’ve got to try this one. It doesn’t have the acid that the yellow has so I can eat the entire pineapple myself, so juicy! Yum. Check it out, if you like pineapple, you will love the red!
