Maui Art Exhibition For a Cause Malama Wao Akua

Looking for something to do this summer? The Hui Noeau and East Maui Watershed Partnership will be presenting an art exhibition to celebrate the native species that make Hawaii a unique place to live!
February 15, 2019

We’d like to announce a special event that’s coming up this fall. Running from September 13, 2019, until November 08, 2019 will be a wonderful event that brings together art and conservation on Maui. In collaboration with East Maui Watershed Partnership (EMWP), the Hui Noeau Visual Arts Center is hosting a juried art exhibition that celebrates the native species of Maui County. Mālama Wao Akua (Caring for the Realm of the Gods), invites local artists from the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Kahoolawe, to use their work to raise awareness about the importance of protecting native species.

In addition to demonstrating knowledge of watersheds and native species, artwork for the exhibition will be selected based on a variety of criteria some of which include originality, technique, professionalism, creativity, and overall presentation. Mālama Wao Akua is meant to be an inspirational showcase where Hawaii artists of all ages will be motivated to explore the Hawaiian watersheds and create an expressive message of the value that these species have.

We hope you enjoyed learning about this eco-friendly and artistic-driven event and consider attending or maybe even entering! It gives us so much joy to be a part of this beautiful island and events such as these that encourage us all to take a deeper look at our environment and appreciate all that it does for us is in our little island home. So be prepared to be inspired and mark your calendars this fall for the Malama Wao Akua exhibit on Maui.

We hope to hear from you soon and, as always, keep us in mind for all your West Maui real estate needs. Mahalo nui loa and cheers!

The Best Maui Golf Courses are in Kapalua

When it comes to sports in Maui, nothing tops the Maui golf courses. Find out why the two golf courses in Kapalua are the best in the whole world!
February 08, 2019

When it comes to sports in Maui nothing tops Maui golf courses. This island is replete with so many great golf courses that it’s truly a golfer’s paradise. That being said, there are some that outrank the rest and they just so happen to be in Kapalua along with some of the best real estate on the island including condos for sale in Kapalua and stunning Kapalua luxury homes. That’s why today we’re going to let you in on our reasons for what makes these two golf courses in Kapalua the best in the whole world.

Kapalua Bay Course

This West Maui golf course was opened in 1975 and has hosted over 20 major professional tournaments! That’s the most out of any golf courses in the state. From the first live prime-time televised event in golf at the 1983 Kapalua International to the Kapalua LPGA classic some 25 years later, this golf course is one you have to check out.

This championship golf course rests on rolling, hilly terrain throughout the Kapalua resort and onward towards the ocean. It has 68 bunkers total, 8 water hazards, and an ideal 5th hole that gives golfers a close view of the edge of the Pacific. Aside from the views, some great golfers have been here including Fred Couples and Davis Love III. Have we convinced you yet of what makes this golf course one of the best?

Kapalua Plantation Course

This course is often ranked the number one golf course in all Hawaii and is rightfully given that name for its design and incredible views. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the course was made on a wide scale and offers views of the West Maui Mountains and the awe-inspiring Pacific Ocean. It has a lengthy 7,411-yard par with 73 layout challenges. The pros love it but so will you. The Plantation Course also happens to be home to the PGA TOUR’s Sentry Tournament of Champions each year and golfers of clout such as Tiger Woods have stepped foot on here. How amazing is that!

That’s some background on the two best golf courses not only on Maui but in the world that also happen to be located right here on Maui. That’s why real estate for sale in Kapalua is a great investment because you’ll be near one of your favorite past times and have access to this course every day. If you see a home in Kapalua you like and would like to learn more about this area, then make sure to contact us. We hope to see you on the green and we’ll catch up with you here next week. A hui hou!
