Maui flood waters can be fun - new oceanfront properties on Maui

While the rest of the country is suffering from the usual miserable winter weather, here on Maui we are also having our share of rain.  A huge storm front moved over the islands this morning and dumped a lot of water, causing road closures and flooding.  The scene in south Maui resulted in the usual road closure at Kaonoulu Rd and S. Kihei Road.  You can see why when you watch this short video.  Video and picture courtesy of Tara Crawford.

The Villas at Kenolio is a low density townhouse condo development off Kaonoulu Road, adjacent to a wetland, making for nice open space by the complex.  Most of the year it's dry here and they even have to water the vacant land to keep the dust down at times.  Not so this morning.  The Villas at Kenolio suddenly became waterfront property when flood waters and ocean mingled, creating an easy passage to nearby Maalaea Harbor.  Here you can see a happy homeowner Andrew Crawford paddling his stand up paddle board over the wetlands, on his way to work at Bevinco.  Good thing they have an upper unit!

The storm has caused a big stir here on Maui and you can keep up with the latest events online:

If you're looking for an oceanfront condo or home on Maui, there are many other options besides the Villas at Kenolio. Please contact me and we can get the process started.  You can soon be warm and cozy in your new Maui condo.

Is this Atlantis revisited? Perhaps I should look at beachfront property now for a quick killing.

Georgina, Gosh so many parts of the world are having problems with flooding.  Brave soul out there.

Stay dry as we try to stay warm.

He didn't really look like he wanted to be out there.  I guess you have lots to think about on the islands--rainfall, global warming, rising tides.  Does Hawaii lose land each year?--Dumb question I guess!

Hi Georgina,

I came over to Maui yesterday and woke this morning to clear, sunny skies.  It's nice to be back to normal.

Georgina - South Tampa (where I grew up) is known for poor drainage and flooded streets during torrential downpours. As a kid we used to put on our bathing suits and go out in the water. Something I would never let my granddaughter do today!
