i’ve got a real itch to travel, and when i land i’d like it to be someplace warm and sunny. as soon as i turn in this book i’m outta here — i’ve planned a trip to maui for some much needed rest and relaxation — swimming and snorkeling in warm salt water, lots of good books, barbecuing on our little lanai — kind of doing a whole lot of nothing at all. in the meantime, i thought it would be fun to go there in my mind for a while and round up some surf shack style. sometimes the accommodations in the islands are a little, shall we say, a little downtown don ho, but if i had my own beach house, i might need to modernize my version of island style just a wee bit.

    • we stay at the Puamana condos. their website is meh, but the place is really great. right on the beach, and all the condos have their own lanai with BBQ’s. and the pool is right on the water, at a surf break, so we just swim and watch them surf all day.

  1. It’s always been my ultimate dream to live in a little place on the beach, and this post is certainly rekindling that desire! Oh, that kitchen… to die for. Sigh.

  2. Love the joe schmelzer picture. Do you know where I can get the beautiful steel/walnut(?) chairs from?
    Thanks
