It’s October in Lahaina!
There are not very many people who live on Maui that don’t get a little tingle of excitement when October arrives. After all, Lahaina on Halloween has been dubbed the “Mardi Gras of the Pacific” for many years. Some people plan all year and work on what their costume will be not just for themselves but for their whole family/ohana. Fall is in the air with shorter days and beautiful earlier sunsets – as always. What a great time to enjoy your new property on Maui! Imagine sitting on your patio/lanai, enjoying some appetizers/pupus as friends or family are just about to pull the delicious/ono goodies off the barbecue. As you gaze out to the blue Pacific, the conversation always comes up this time of year: “When do you think the first whale will arrive this year?” Everyone is hoping soon. At dinner during sunset, you may ask, “Who’s going to shoot par tomorrow?” After all, the world-class Royal Kaanapali Golf Course is only a short golf cart ride away. Or…. we can drop the kids off at the beach and head off to Whalers Village, loaded with world-class shops and restaurants. Then all meet for lunch and maybe a snorkel around Black Rock. Boy, will I be glad to get back to my lanai for some relaxation and an early sunset!
If this sounds like a lifestyle that fits you and your family’s “game plan,” The Vintage at Kaanapali should not be overlooked as a perfect first or second home on West Maui. 108 Kualapa Place has had a recent price reduction and is open daily to view.
