It’s known as the “Valley Isle”, and it seems impossible that anyone could make this tropical island paradise more enchanting than Mother Nature herself… but the artists at Costantino Studio in Lahaina have managed to do just that! And it’s not only the artwork that sets this private home studio apart. It’s the family that runs it and the engaging atmosphere that will keep you coming back for more.
Following the footsteps of his late father, renowned painter Ralph Costantino, Auggie and his wife Steph and their son Carlo bring to life a collection of vibrant and colourful original abstract works which they display at their home on Front Street in Lahaina. They’ve carefully transformed their backyard into a gallery full of surreal magic and whimsical pleasures. Sheltered beneath a majestic Mango tree, an ever rotating collection of paintings frolic, inspired by the spirits of the island.
Any chance you wanted to learn how to surf on your trip? Well, look no further as Auggie has been surfing his whole life and runs Lahaina Surf Experience. Maybe you think that you’re not cut out for surfing, well think again because Auggie can literally teach anyone to surf! His down to earth style of teaching and one on one instruction is a great help to those of us who are a bit timid. He’s a delight to hang ten with and will probably impart a handful of wisdom to you while watching the sets roll in. A fantastic day out that you will never forget, mark my words.
The perfect combination of art, surf, and lifestyle, the Costantino’s will quickly make a genuine impact on your Hawaiian holiday. Make it a top priority to visit Costantino Studio and in the meantime check out their websites, browse the extensive collection of paintings, and tell them that TravelGoss sent you!
