September 21, 2018

Hawaii’s most popular and anticipated Halloween party launches again this October in the heart of Lahaina, America’s number one best beachtown.

Every year Front Street in Lahaina shuts down and becomes what some might refer to as the Mardi Gras of the Pacific. Those of you who enjoy letting loose and having some fun for a night then this is your ticket. Mark your calendars and expect an evening of play and excitement.

The evening always starts with the Annual Halloween Contest in Banyan Park. During the contest, Maui’s most adorable keiki (children) walk in a parade down Front Street where they are given prizes for their imaginative creations. Later the party continues into the street with loud music, eccentric costumes, and characters that embody their role with pride and precision. What could be more entertaining than that? Expect food vendors, colorful decor, music, and memories for this year’s Halloween on Front Street. So whether you’re a fan of Halloween or plan on participating in this year’s  West Maui event, start dreaming up your costume now so you can show up ready to go during the annual Halloween party in Lahaina.

Our West Maui town was ranked number 4 in affordability, scored a 10 in the quality of life rank, and also was ranked number two in lowest median annual property taxes (Wailuku has the lowest median annual property taxes overall at 0.16 percent).  In second place overall for the best beach town to live in is Naples Florida, and in third place is Sarasota Florida.

Join This Special Fundraiser in Honor of Maui Kupuna

Here at Sakamoto Properties, we value giving back to our island neighbors and honoring institutions and organizations that do the same.
August 31, 2018

In Hawaii and in life, few things are as important as our values. What we value in this world is reflected in our everyday actions and helps to shape our decisions and the communities around us. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” Here at Sakamoto Properties, we value giving back to our island neighbors and honoring institutions and organizations that do the same. 

One such place happens to be Hale Makua. Hale Makua is a Maui-based organization that opened in 1946 as a home for our island elders who were in need of assistance. What started as a 24-bedroom home in Happy Valley has now turned into an incredible network of passionate and caring people that provide facilities and assistance for local elders and adults throughout Maui.

This incredible organization is able to succeed in all they do for our neighboring elders or kupuna in our community thanks to the support from generous people such as you. If you enjoy giving back, then please join us on Saturday, September 8th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. Attendees will experience a night of outdoor, live entertainment with Hawaiian singers and Grammy-nominated musicians Amy Hanaialii and Raiatea Helm. Both of these amazing female musicians are Hoku Hanohano Awards winners and are sure to provide you with a show of a lifetime! Tickets to this event will also include a Hawaiian luau dinner and tickets for two adult beverages.

Funds raised from this September outing will go towards Hale Makua’s 70 year legacy of providing care for Maui’s kupuna. There will be free transportation to and from Hale Makua Kahului to the venue for those who would like to join but may not have a ride. Call 871-9271 to purchase tickets today.
