Big Ocean View Land Opportunities in Haiku
A quiet country road that wanders towards the ocean. Cooling trade winds. Swaying palm trees. Vibrant greens and the vivid blues of the ocean along Maui’s North shore. If this sounds like a place that you would like to call home, 300 Mehana Road offers two separate opportunities for those that want to build their dream home or cottage on Maui.

Mehana Road is a small private road on the ocean side of Hana Highway. It is about 10 minutes away from a grocery store, restaurants, food trucks, the post office and fitness centers at the Haiku Cannery. It is about 15 minutes from Paia town. Ho’okipa Beach Park is ten minutes away. The airport is roughly half an hour away.
300 Mehana Road Unit A
Unit A consists of 3.88 acres of gently sloped agriculturally zoned land. This unit is designated for the construction of the main house on the property.

Paia is consistently a tight real estate market with limited inventory and strong demand. That makes our new Paia listing all the more compelling. It is truly a unique property with nothing equivalent on the market in some time. The property consists of just under a half of acre of land with a three bedroom, two bath home and a two bedroom, one bath home. Each structure has its own water meter and its own septic system. The property has already been through the CPR process. The process converted the property into two separate units that may be sold separately. The seller is opting to sell the property as a whole.
The lot in and of itself makes this property particularly compelling. There aren’t a lot of big lots in this small town. The bulk of the larger lots are more expensive oceanfront properties. This is the biggest lot to come on the market on the Mauka side of Hana Highway since 2010. The lot isn’t unique just due to its size. It is also offers a unique setting with a 753 acre agricultural parcel surrounding the property on three sides. Fewer neighbors means more quiet and more privacy. The well landscaped property includes a stately Monkeypod tree and edibles including Papaya, Banana, Mangoes and Coconuts.
There are two existing, well maintained homes on the property. The one is a two bedroom, one bathroom home with 1.050 square feet of living space. The other is a three bedroom, two bathroom home with 1,130 square feet of living space and an attached car port. Both homes have some view of the ocean. Building up offers the potential for outstanding ocean views.
I already mentioned that a second story could really enhance the views of the homes. I also mentioned that the completed CPR process for the property. That process converted each home and a surrounding area of land into separate condo units that may be sold individually. What I haven’t mentioned is that a future owner could add an additional cottage to the property. The property has the zoning, lot size and water available to build a cottage.
The quiet setting and the surrounding agricultural land make it easy to forget that you are a few minutes walk from Paia. Walk to the post office, restaurants, Mana Foods, shops, and yoga studios in five minutes. Paia Bay Park is about a ten minute walk. This is the type of property where you can leave your car parked in the driveway.

Father’s Day at Duke’s Honua Kai
Billy and I were lucky enough to have our parents visiting from the mainland this week. We headed over to Honua Kai in Ka’anapali to have father’s day dinner at Duke’s Restaurant. The meal was outstanding, the company was great and the scenery along Airport beach speaks for itself. Here are a few photos that I snapped post dinner.
The restaurant at Duke’s complements an already impressive list of amenities of at Honua Kai Resort. As posted recently on The Maui Real Estate blog, Honua Kai recently announced major price adjustments on the remaining new developer units.

New Pricing at Honua Kai
This week Honua Kai Resort in Ka’anapali just announced big price adjustments on their remaining inventory of condos for sale. Honua Kai is the first new beachfront fee simple whole ownership development in the Ka’anapali area for over 20 years. Located along North or Airport beach, It was well received by buyers with the initial pre-construction offerings selling out within hours. The high volume of closes at the complex have helped to buoy condo sales figures over the last couple of years. This is a phenomenon that we dubbed the Honua Kai effect. It is easy to see why buyers have gravitated toward Honua Kai. Amenities include three pools, a fitness center, kids camps, concierge services, a well regarded restaurant in Duke’s Maui and a great stretch of beach along the beautiful waters of the Pacific.
A number of the remaining condos for sale are now discounted well below initial developer pricing. One and two bedroom units in the Hokulani tower appear to be some of the better values with pricing as much as 40% below roll out pricing. There are other floor plans where prices are actually a little higher than the original roll out prices. While the developer does not go into the specific reasons behind the adjustments, this appears to be a classic case of supply and demand. Units that have and continue to garner the most interest have been adjusted upwards. Units where sales have lagged have been adjusted down. You can check out the Honua Kai Updated Price List for specific prices and floor plans available. These new developer offerings at Honua Kai are offered through Playground Destination Property, Inc.
