Enjoy the Recent Upgrades at the Kapalua Bay Course on Maui

This award-winning golf course is undergoing significant enhancements.
March 15, 2019

Change is inevitable, and while the island life tends to be a little slower than usual, that doesn’t mean everything stays the same here all the time. And change can be useful, especially when it comes to upgrading your life, lifestyle, and favorite hobby.

If you’re planning an upcoming trip to Maui and are an avid golfer, then be prepared to check out the upgrades to the famous Kapalua Bay Golf Course on Maui’s west side. This award-winning golf course is undergoing some significant enhancements in hopes of making this already acclaimed course even better.

According to a press release, the Kapalua Bay Golf Course, Bay Course Golf Shop and the Kapalua Golf Academy are all undergoing renovations. Individually, The Bay Course has been rerouted in order to improve the experience of golfers by creating a few more challenges for all of you ambitious athletes.

The golf course’s new first hole is located where the 7th hole  had been previously located, and includes an uphill 355-yard par 4. The late 16th and 17th holes are taking the place of the old 4 and five holes, and you’ll have a chance to play over the stunning Pacific Ocean with an unmatchable view. The new 18th hole is a bit more challenging with an uphill par 5 and will take the place of the former 6th hole. Additionally, with a par-3, the 17th hole is Maui’s only over-the-ocean par 3! Sound like fun? We thought so!

Aside from the course, the golf shop on site has been moved, and is now located at the Village Center at Kapalua. The Bay Golf & Resort Shops, Taverna Restaurant, and the Kapalua Golf Academy, along with other administrative offices, also call The Village Center home.

The Kapalua Golf Academy has also been updated and includes expanded tee areas and a practice range. There has also been a nice addition of a large 9,000 sq. ft. putting green by the Village Center to give guests additional practice.

We hope you’re getting excited for the changes and look to us for your vacation rental specials and contact us with any questions you might have about your trip to the island. Our staff is always willing to help you get the most out of your stay on Maui and can help you with your vacation rental needs. Have a wonderful week and we hope to hear from you soon. Aloha.

Things To Do In Maui in April- Family Fun at the Hawaii Color Festival

Visiting Maui in April? Then make sure to add the Color Festival to your list of things to do. This event is going to be exciting, fun and will appeal to the whole family.
March 08, 2019

Once you have your family vacation rental squared away, then it’s time to start planning your Maui travel itinerary. If you’re going to be visiting in April, then make sure to add the Color Festival Hawaii to your list of things to do in Maui. This event is going to be exciting, fun and will appeal to every member of the family.

The Color Festival kicks off at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on April 13th with live music by DJs near and far including DJ Boomshot, Shea Butter & Cream, Yum Yum Beast, and Rayland Baxter of Nashville, Tennessee before the throwing of colors.

As a modern American take on the Indian Holi Festival, the Color Festival Hawaii is inspired by a long-standing tradition that celebrates spring, and the conquering of good over evil through the throwing colored powders on friends and family which gives the holiday its name- The Festival of Colors. The message is of unity, love, and happiness and what a fun way to spend a day on Maui! The local nonprofit Imua Family Services is bringing the Color Festival Hawaii to Maui as a friend-raiser, a family-friendly gathering, and a place for all children to be included.

Event Sponsors include SongDivision, Alaska Airlines, Maui Jim Sunglasses, MauiNOW, PMG, & FHB. Guests should be advised to wear white and know that color paks and souvenir event T-shirts will be available for purchase at the event. And don’t worry! The powder is colored cornstarch and won’t hurt. But make sure to bring either a plastic bag or towel to cover your car seat after the event.

Tickets are currently on sale for $20 and will increase the day of the show. Keiki tickets are on sale for $15 and are available for ages 6 through 16. Kids 5 and under are free.

We hope you enjoyed learning about the Maui Color Festival and consider joining the fun this year. Don’t have accommodation yet? Contact us today and we’ll find you the best hotel resort condo rental or Maui vacation home that best fits your needs.  Aloha!

Eating like a local means enjoying some of the tasty grinds that are infused with flavor, culture, and aloha. Here are our best three places to eat like a local in Maui.

1. Da Kitchen: With locations in both Rainbow Mall in Kihei and near the airport in Kahului, this spot is well-known for its local dishes that come in generous sizes. Enjoy a loco moco, some poi, and a healthy portion of rice on the side with each meal. What are these recipes you ask? Well, just some of our favorite foods!

Loco mocos takes home cooking to the next level and comes with a hamburger patty on a bed of rice topped off with gravy and a fried egg! Yum! Poi, of course, is a local Hawaiian side dish that comes from the fermented root of the taro which has been baked and pounded into a paste. It’s incredible! And, of course, every dish comes with rice here so don’t embarrass yourself by skipping the rice or your server will certainly call you out!

2. Tin Roof: Now here is a must for your next Maui vacation. The Tin Roof is a casual lunch joint that was opened by Chef Sheldon Simeon.
