Paia Area Oceanfront Lot

This is a rare opportunity to design and build your own oceanfront dream home in the Kuau area of Paia on Maui’s North Shore. There are only a handful of vacant lots available on the water in and around Paia. It is also a premier lot. The Western orientation means the prevailing trade winds blow off shore from your property. It also means stunning West Maui Mountain and Sunset views from your future lanai. Speaking of views, you can check the surf from this property. You will be able to check the conditions at Noriega’s and Tavares Bay. The zoning of the property allows for a number of different construction options including multiple dwellings.

The neighborhood, known both as Kuau Point and Kuau Sunset, is one of the more desirable neighborhoods in the Paia area. You can walk to Mama’s Beach. Of course that means that you can also walk to the world renowned Mama’s Fish House for lunch or dinner. It is also a short stroll with your board to the launch area to SUP, surf or windsurf at Noriega’s or the Mama’s Surf Break. The Kuau Store means you don’t have to hop in a car to pick up a coffee or grab a quick lunch. Ho’okipa Beach Park is less than a half of a mile from the neighborhood. Paia Town and its shopping, restaurants, amazing health food store and yoga studios are less than a mile away.

This Kuau Oceanfront lot is offered for $3,395,000. You can check out the 61 Aleiki Listing Page for additional photos and details on the property. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team to discuss the property with the listing agent or to arrange a showing.

Charming Beachfront Cottage in the Paia Area

Whoever said bigger is better, has yet to step foot in our charming beachfront, Hawaiian Plantation style home that we just listed in Kuau. This two bedroom/one bath cottage exudes charm and offers an ideal setting. You have back yard access to all of the Maui North Shore ocean sports. The windsurfing and surfing are great off of Kuau Point. You don’t need to rely on the notoriously fickle Hookipa Cam to check the surf at Ho’okipa Beach Park. Just look upwind from your back yard to get a gauge on the wind and the waves. Ho’okipa’s multitude of breaks attracts surfers, kiters and windsurfers from all over the globe. If you like to SUP, you can wave to friends and family sitting on the back porch as you paddle downwind on the world renowned Maliko run. If you prefer tamer pursuits in the ocean, the sands of Mama’s Beach are perfect for lounging and a reef keeps the waters right off the beach protected from the waves. It is a perfect place to cool off from the mid day sun.

The Kuau Point location is less than a mile from downtown Paia. There you will find charming shops, restaurants, galleries, yoga studios and the best little natural food store on the planet. Costco, The Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Kahului Aiport, Movie Theaters and UH Maui College are about 15 minutes away in Central Maui. Last but not least, one of the island’s best and most renowned restaurants is just a few doors down from the home. You are about a two minute walk from Mama’s Fish House and its Mai Tais, delectable Ceviche and melt in your mouth Sashimi.

If you have a bigger family or you expect lots of house guests, this property does give you the option to grow. The lot is over 13,000 square feet with the room and the zoning to build an additional structure.

This beachfront opportunity is offered via the Maui Real Estate Team for $2,750,000. Check out the 129 Aleiki Place listing page for additional photos and details. Qualified buyers should contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a showing.
