Live in Harmony with Nature in Haiku
We are excited to bring this new listing in Haiku to market. This home is ideal for a buyer who wants to live in harmony with nature. It starts with the setting. The home is situated on 1.7 acres in a tropical valley with a stream that runs along the valley bottom. The property has been lovingly planted over the years with a huge variety of fruit trees, bamboo, native hardwoods and ornamental tropicals. Grow your own enthusiasts will love all of the raised beds in for growing herbs and vegetables. The house itself has a pod design with strong Asian influences. Sliding doors throughout open the house up to the tropical landscape. This home is a prime example of Hawaiian Style indoor/outdoor living. Other notable amenities include a large koi pond; an old wood stove in the living room; exotic hardwoods including Koa, Ohia, Mahogany, and Bankirai; a wood fried, cedar tub; and a detached bamboo hale.

The home is powered by the sun with a photovoltaic system with generator back up. The generator, the roof and the stainless steel refrigerator are all new.
While the home has a quiet setting, you are still just 15 minutes from Paia town and less than ten minutes to Makawao. Hookipa Beach Park is about ten minutes away.

We are pretty excited to bring this spectacular property to market. Kula Koa is 52 acres consisting of two separate parcels of 38 and 14 acres. The owner had a massive well installed and a water system that delivers water from the top of the property to the bottom. There is a an oversized garage on the property with an attached ag work shop. The garage offers lots of space for toys, farming equipment and more. The two bedroom custom cottage is well designed and features high end appliances and a fireplace for those cool Upcountry nights. The existing structures are powered by a 6 kilowatt photovoltaic system with battery and generator back up. The seller installed a septic system and graded a building pad for a main home to be built.
The setting of Kula Koa is tough to beat. The property runs from Haleakala Highway down to the top of the Kula 200 subdivision. This is an ideal climate zone with just enough rain, plenty of sunshine and crisp nights. The views from the property include big vistas of Haleakala, the West Maui Mountains, both the North and South Shores of Maui, Molokai and Lanai. The property offers plenty of privacy and seclusion, but you are still less than 10 minutes from downtown Makawao and you are just over 20 minutes from the airport.
This property offers a variety of opportunities for buyers. There is potential to subdivide, enough water to share and a whole lot of agricultural potential. A number of separate pasture areas are ideal for grazing animals or horses. There is plenty of water and a good climate for vegetables and orchards. The setting, privacy and infrastructure are also ideal to create a legacy estate. The choice is yours.
Kula Koa is offered by The Maui Real Estate Team, Inc. for $5,500,000. You can check out the Kula Koa listing page for additional photos and details on the property. Qualified buyers may contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a tour or to discuss the property.

Big Views at a Reasonable Price in Pukalani
The words big view are often associated with big bucks. Our new listing in Pukalani in Maui’s Upcountry offers an opportunity to purchase a stunning view at a reasonable price. The home overlooks a beautiful and rugged natural gulch. The gulch in and of itself is a great view point. Deer can be seen frequently along the side of the gulch and Pueo (owls) like to patrol above the gulch at dusk. The vistas beyond the gulch extend to Central Maui, the West Maui Mountains, The North Shore coastline and the Eastern end of Molokai.
The value of this home goes far beyond the view. It is spacious at over 2,200 square feet. The kitchen was fully remodeled in 2008 with granite counters, maple cabinets, a six burner gas stove, double ovens and more. The dining area and living area have high ceilings. The master suite features a sitting area with floor to ceiling book shelves. Both bathrooms were remodeled in 2008. There is also a Photovoltaic system on the roof to keep electric bills to a minimum. For those cool Upcountry nights, there are two great ways to take off the chill. Light the fireplace or take a soak in the outdoor hot tub and enjoy the big night skies.
The yard has some good edibles. There is a prolific Jamaican Lilikoi vine out front. The back yard has a few citrus trees and there is a mature Avocado tree that produces prolific amounts of some of the creamiest and tastiest fruit I have had the pleasure of eating.
This home is offered for $670,000. Check out the 2690 Akalani Loop listing page for more photos and details. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a showing.
