Aloha! My name is Carmen Karady and I live in Lahaina. I own two condos here at Lahaina Shores Resort. I have lived in Lahaina for over ten years and teach yoga at the nearby hotel resorts and senior center. In my spare time I volunteer as a tutor at the middle school and am an active member of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise which meets every Tuesday morning at 7 am. I have a wonderful partner, Norman Estin, who is a physician in town, and three grown children. In my heyday, I taught comparative literature and traveled all over the world with the US Navy on board warships. I also lived in Hungary, Bratislava, France and Cairo. I still get to travel to visit my son in Budapest and my daughter who lives in Japan. I have one son who lives on Maui. The terrific news is that I am now a grandmother since February 2012.
Voted as one of the best beach towns in the USA, this is a great location for tourists and locals alike, and it's getting better all the time because many of the historical sites are being renovated.
One of the advantages of living in Lahaina is that you really don't need a car. Everything is in walking distance--from the Banyan Park to the Harbor. The beach is right outside your door, as well as art galleries, museums, churches, restaurants, and shops. The location is really quite convenient.
Hawaii is unique for several reasons: its healing qualities due to the fresh air, sparkling warm ocean, sunshine, and constant year-round ideal temperatures. Not only do the winter birds flock to Maui, but summer birds as well because of the moderate climate. And let's not forget Maui's volcano, Haleakala, 'House of the rising sun,' a pilgrimage well worth taking at dawnbreak. Then there are jungles and waterfalls, golf galore, and day trips to neighboring islands. The list goes on and on.
One of the most unique benefits of this particular location is direct beach access--just walk out the back gate! Next door is the surfing school where you can rent paddle and surf board; and you can join my yoga classes for free.
