Live Your Best Island Life on Maui

Moving to Maui

Updated 1/19/2023: Having just recently celebrated my twelve-year 'Mauiversary', I look back and realize I knew nothing about Maui when I moved here! I had never even been to Hawaii or Maui before. Prior to deciding to move to Maui, I had been living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and if you've ever spent much time there you know it's amazing, but year-round the weather and career opportunities can be challenging. So, I made up my mind to sell my car, pack my stuff, and start a new life on Maui really knowing very little about the island. 

This may sound a little wild, but it is not as uncommon as it may sound, many Maui residents will have a similar story of how they came to love island life. Every month I have many…

Enjoy the Best Golf Courses on Maui

Best Golf Courses on Maui

One of the reasons I love living on Maui is certainly the access to an abundance of year-round world-class golf.  Not only does the weather allow for playing 12 months a year, but the island is such an amazing backdrop for a great variety of beautiful and challenging golf courses. Before I get ahead of myself, I should preface all of this with the fact that I’m not a scratch golfer or even close, but I can put an ok round together. Most of all,  I appreciate getting some time outside and just going out for a fun round with friends while enjoying a few refreshments along the way. 

That being said, some of the courses on Maui are tough! The wind is only one of the things you’ll notice affecting your score, but…
