Island Sotheby’s International Realty agents are representing what could be the largest sale ever for a single-family home on Maui.

After recent eruptions in the Puna area of the Big Island started making national headlines and destroying homes, mainland travelers began to panic, canceling long-planned vacations and leaving the island’s resorts.

But what many of them don’t know is that the lava isn’t spewing across the entire island - and definitely not across all of the Hawaiian Islands. The affected area, Puna is mainly residential, and the rest of the Big Island - and the rest of the state - are entirely safe.
