Lāhainā Real Estate

Lahaina, the former Hawaiian capital, was the center of the global whaling trade, and its Historic District is a National Historic Landmark. Lahaina’s history is rich with chiefs, kings, queens, ship captains and whales. For the better part of the 1800’s Lahaina was a whaling port and today it’s still famous as a whaling port, mostly for whale watching. During its early whaling days Lahaina was a wild town. Since then, this charming town grew to be a major attraction for visitors and the home of the “Mardi Gras of the Pacific” where on Halloween, thousands of costumed people paraded up and down Front Street.

Then, on August 8, 2023, devastating wildfires broke out in Kula and Lahaina.

I am still stunned and saddened as so many lives were lost. Historical sites were lost and too many good folks lost their homes and businesses. The re-creation of the town will be a long and arduous process. I was moved by the way the local community immediately sprang into action, providing much-needed help to those that were affected. Maui residents selflessly rose to the occasion, exhibiting our Hawaiian Value, “Kokua”. Since then, the world-wide outpouring of support shows how the world loves Maui. Knowing that the fabric of this community is so caring and so supportive of one another really helps to balance how we feel. I am heartened by the well-intended individuals that became leaders and have confidence that this big heart and determination will prevail throughout the recovery process.

The hard work to rebuild will require so much time, money, patience and understanding. If you, like many others would like to participate, there are many ways to do so. Please see the link below to find organizations where you can donate and/or get involved to help the recovery.
