Life On Maui
Living full time on Maui I have the ability and privilege of managing my own vacation rental home, Pacific Paradise Maui. With my residence and vacation rental home only a mile or so apart the enjoyment of meeting and greeting each arriving guest personally is almost guaranteed. I do travel quite often although nothing feels so good as returning home to Maui. No matter where I go people are always in awe when they learn you live in Maui! Family visits often for extended stays.
Sprinkle into this the good fortune of taking a swim, snorkel, SUP, surf or hike on a moments notice daily, gorgeous rainbows and sunsets with the best weather on the planet and you have the recipe for Paradise!
Growing up in Florida I have always loved the tropics. The family hotel business gave me a love of traveling. It was only natural that I would have a yearning desire to visit Hawaii.
It was more than that… I thought if I ever made it to Hawaii I would never return! Visions of paradise with stunningly beautiful beaches, blue ocean, romantic waterfalls, and unique mountains carved by the winds beckoned me.
In 1995 it happened, opportunity knocked, I put my real estate on hold and moved to Hawaii sight unseen within a month, three suitcases and a couple of boxes in tow… I am still here!!
Moving to Kauai then Maui in 2000 has been my destiny and a blessing. Through a real estate career of ten years tourism and particularly the vacation rental business was always on my mind. In 2003 I purchased my first home which needed everything but a roof and in 2006 I acquired my first vacation rental, a sweet one bedroom oceanfront condo. And here the story really begins. Many years as a realtor on Maui helping clients achieve their dreams and goals as well as my own kept me very busy. The thoughtful renovation of Pacific Paradise Maui took two years. The design and build of a new home and renovating my current home took another two + years.
