While on this blog we often talk about real estate, we also like to focus on places, events, and people that make Maui No Ka Oi (the best). One of our favorite spots on the island just so happens to be the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge and we want to tell you why. Read on to learn more.
This special area is conveniently located at milepost 6 on the Maui Veterans Highway in Kihei. It’s situated right in between Lahaina and Kahului and is an eye-catcher for sure. This large piece of natural wonder just so happens to be home to more than 30 species of birds, including some really unique wildlife such as the migratory waterfowl and the endangered Hawaiian stilt and coot.
Established in the early 1990s, the wildlife refuge covers more than 700 acres between Kihei and Maalaea and includes walking trails and a coastal boardwalk located on the island’s largest lowland wetland. If you haven’t been there yet, then now is the time, as there are a few special events coming up for the next few months.
Currently, there are guided bird walks at the pond on Tuesdays starting at 9 a.m. This exclusive and limited event gives visitors and islanders alike a chance to learn about the refuge and the birds that inhabit the area. Also, until March of this year, the area will be open the third Saturday of every month with family-friendly activities. The boardwalk nearby is open seven days a week from sunrise until 7 p.m., and current refuge hours are 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Visitor center hours are Monday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Take advantage of the limited special events so you can gain a better understanding of one of Maui’s most majestic natural wonders and learn all about what makes the Kealia Pond so incredible. We hope to see you at one of the third Saturday events and hear from you soon about real estate on Maui. Have a great week everyone and a hui hou!

Are you looking for a fun and good cause to participate in this coming spring and summer time? Are you someone who enjoys having an active lifestyle and want to use it to help others? Well if this sounds like you then get ready because the Annual Maui 5K is right around the corner and you don’t want to miss it!
Every year this annual event brings Maui community members together to celebrate fitness in the name of a good cause. The Maui 5K seeks to promote health and fitness in Maui’s keiki (children) by giving the local schools proceeds raised from the event. Those funds are used to promote the Hawaii athletic programs and help buy new equipment for physical fitness, play and more.
If this sounds like something you would consider signing up for, here is what to expect:
The day before the event on March 2nd, you should pick up your racing packet for the Maui 5K between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. You can pick up the packet at Adventure Sports Maui in Kahului. Late registration will be accepted but you’ll have to pay an additional higher cost of $40 so don’t procrastinate and sign up early. Now that’s not all. On race day, you’ll be expected to be at the Maalaea Triangle in Wailuku before the race begins at 7 a.m.
If a 5k sounds too intense for you then don’t worry because there will also be an option to participate in a 1-mile run/walk that starts a little later. The awards ceremony will begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. Every year this event brings so much joy and excitement to the island and if you’ve never participated in a race then make Maui’s 5K your first, you won’t be disappointed.
