A Sunny Day in Kihei Maui

The weather is still absolutely gorgeous here on Maui. Kihei is still nice and warm with a mild breeze from the offshore trade winds to cool us off in the afternoons.
Surf is still up, snorkel, kite surf, canoe paddles and kayaks are sill frolicking on all coastlines - daily.
Airlines are extremely competitive right now, offering reasonable rates from the West Coast. 

Come to Maui, experience the tropical lifestyle and learn what the bus is all about. 
A terrific place for a quick getaway or family investment. 

Come learn why Maui is No Ka Oi (The Best)!!!

Ever Tried Tasaka Guri Guri???

Located in the Maui Mall, this desert shop parlor has been a staple on Maui for over 100 years. Tasaka family's business started with a small store on Pu'unene Avenue located in Kahului, Maui. From that small store, the Tasaka family has relocated over Central Maui and have been located in Maui Mall, since 1973.  This is a local business that has stood the test of time.

A cross between a sorbet, and a gelato, not-quite ice cream is one for the senses. Typical ingredients of guri-guri are a mixture of flavored juices, guava juice, and condensed milk. Tasaka Guri-Guri's recipe has been kept a secret for over a century, however rumor has it that lemon-lime soda may also be involved. The latest to know the recipe are Gunji Tasaka, who is retired from the shop, and his two daughters, Gail and Cindy Tasaka, who have now taken over the family business.

Guri-guri comes in two flavors: pineapple and strawberry.  I encourage you to bring a friend and stop by next time you're in town. You will not be disappointed.

Experience Golf on Maui

Golf on Maui gives you the opportunity to see some of the world's most beautiful landscapes while playing some of the world's highest ranked courses. Some were designed by legends such as Arnold Palmer and Ben Crenshaw and we're home to the PGA Tour's Hyundai Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, these courses will leave you star struck. 

Until you've walked down a fairway engulfed in palm groves and ancient lava headed towards a perfectly manicured green underneath a rainbow, you haven't experienced golf in Maui. 

There are options island wide, including the west side in Kapalua, The Dunes at Maui Lani and King Kamehameha Courses in Central Maui, and the Wailea Blue and Gold Courses on the South Side. Each has their own backdrop and view, and touring the areas and grabbing a bite is a perfect way for some to create unforgettable memories on Maui.
