Hana Caravan

As I posted yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in Hana caravan last week. Our listing at 75 Alalele Road was one of the featured properties. After spending most of the morning holding open house, I hit the road to see some of the other properties. Here is an assortment of pictures from the rest of my Hana caravan excursion.

It is hard not to stop and take in the scenery when driving the road to Hana. A recent article in Sunset Magazine extolled the virtues of taking your time to enjoy the scenery and ideally spending time overnight to take in this truly stunning corner of Hawaii. I pulled off the shoulder of the road to stretch my legs and take a picture of where the rain forest meets the ocean at Honamanu Bay.

The photo above is from the first home I saw on Hana caravan. Needless to say, views are a major selling point for this oceanfront getaway. The property is situated in the Pu’uiki area of Hana which is south of Hamoa Beach. The property is just over 1.1 acres of land with a three bedroom/four bath home. It is pretty easy to envision sitting on the back porch watching the waves crash against the rugged lava rock shoreline. This Hana Oceanfront Home is offered through Island Sotheby’s International Realty for $2,500,000. The Maui Real Estate Team may represent you as buyer’s agents.

Having kept my house open for a longer period of time, I missed a number of the properties on caravan. I was able to dash in and out of one more nice home in Pu’uiki and beautiful property in Kipahulu before I stopped at the last house scheduled for the day.

The picture above is taken from the shower of the Kaupo listing. It is arguably one of the best shower views I have seen as a real estate agent. I know in real estate we use the term one of kind all too frequently. With the heterogeneity of Maui’s Real Estate inventory, I am a big offender of using this term. That being said, that is a very appropriate description for this home. I mean that in the best way. This home offers a fantastic blend of modern architecture with landscaping that harkens to prehistoric Hawaii. Lava rock walls and stone features mesh seamlessly with the corrugated metal construction and other modern design features of the home. This Kaupo Oceanfront Estate is offered for $1,750,000 through Coldwell Banker Island Properties. The Maui Real Estate Team may represent you as buyer’s agents.

As much as the Hana area beckoned me to stay a little longer, I had to get back on the road to get back to the office. As I drove through Kaupo, the shift from tropical to arid came quickly. The arid slopes were green from winter rains and bade me to pull over one more time to take this picture looking back towards the Kaupo Gap. I love driving the full loop of the road to Hana as it takes you through so many of Maui’s varied climate zones.

I hope you enjoyed my quick little photo journey around East Maui. For more pictures from this visit, check out the Hana Caravan gallery on The Maui Real Estate Team Facebook page.
