Four Listings for Your Christmas Wish List
Christmas is just a few days away. Still stumped on what to get the family or that special someone? While none of these suggestions will fit under the tree, maybe the keys would fit nicely in your Christmas stocking. Here are four of our listings that would make this a Christmas to truly remember.
For Those That Love The Ocean
If there is a certain someone in your life who loves the ocean and ocean sports, you would be hard pressed to find a better option on the market than Sugar Cove Building 6. This is the ultimate North Shore lifestyle property. This whole building in the Sugar Cove condominiums is located right above the golden sand of the beach. The beach is as good as it gets for water sports. Long considered a good spot for windsurfing, these days it is a hot spot for wing foiling, kiting, surfing, stand up paddling, body boarding and fishing. Our agent Ridge Lenny gives a taste of the lifestyle on offer in the video below.
While location may be the biggest amenity of Sugar Cove Building 6, the condo itself is a one of a kind offering. Originally three separate units, it was consolidated into one primary living space and a guest space. Overall, it includes eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, three half bathrooms and a total of 5,950 square feet of living space. This other video highlights the quality design, materials and finishing.
The asking price for Sugar Cove Building 6 is $17,000,000. Contact The Maui Real Estate Team for more information.
For Those That Demand The Highest Quality
A Design Nerd’s Dream. Impeccable finishing. Precision Crafted. Carefully Curated. Just some of the ways that people describe the Oasis in Spreckelsville.
This immaculate property includes a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom main home, a detached garage with second story studio apartment, a soaking tub, lap pool and a zero edge main pool. The construction is truly of the highest quality as are the fixtures and building materials. It is sold with furnishings and selected artwork. Again, all of these items carefully chosen by the owner with an attention to detail and quality rarely seen on Maui. Check out our previous posts on the Oasis, its outdoor spaces and design details. Offered for $9,800,000.
For Those That Want to Build The Best…
Five Star Location. A big lot of 1.88 acres. A gated subdivision with only one other vacant lot. Easy access to beautiful beaches and fantastic resort amenities. All of the above make 21 Ualei Place a truly tantalizing spot to build a spectacular luxury home. Located in the One Palauea subdivision, the lot is just to the south of the Fairmont Kealani. Palauea Beach, Polo Beach and the Wailea Beach Path are all a short minutes walk from the property. The Wailea Blue, Emerald and Gold golf courses are again all close by.
This lot is offered for $6,500,000. Check out the 21 Ualei Place listing page for more photos and details.
For Those That Want to Build Now!
Building takes time and patience. One of the biggest time sinks can be the permit process. That is particularly true when you are in a special management area close to the ocean. That makes 300 Mehana Unit B in Haiku the perfect spot if you want to build your dream cottage on Maui sooner rather than later. SMA approvals are done and the permits approved for a 1,000 square foot accessory farm dwelling (cottage), detached garage and agricultural workshop. The CPR property includes 4.22 acres of land. There is plenty of room for gardens or orchards. Set close to the ocean, you can hear the waves and smell the salt in the air. The ocean and Haleakala views are both fantastic.
Grab your builder and break ground in the new year. The asking price for 300 Mehana Unit B is $895,000. Check out the listing page for more photos and details.

The Outdoor Spaces of the Oasis Spreckelsville
Year round outdoor living. It is one of the things near the top of the list for advantages to living in Hawaii. Warm weather and cooling trade winds beckon you to spend time outside. I know this isn’t exactly a revelation, but it seems that so many architects and builders fail to maximize outdoor spaces. That’s one of the things that makes the Oasis Spreckelsville such a well conceived home. The owner thought out every square inch of exterior living space and landscaping. The end result is beautiful, functional and surprisingly easy to maintain.
It’s hard not to start any conversation of the Oasis outdoor spaces without first talking about the pools. There is a 12′ X 31′ main pool, a 5′ X 64′ lap pool and a 6’x 12′ heated spa. All of the pools are zero edge. Surrounding decking conceals storage reservoirs and drainage for the pools. Rather than using marcite or gunite, the owners used 36″ x 18″ tile to surface the pools. In addition to the pools, there is another zen fresh water feature with fountains adjacent to the lap pool.
The Lanai Spaces
Outdoor living spaces make homes live much larger than their interior square footage. This property has tons of outdoor living space. The covered lanai that overlooks the main pool is one of our favorite spaces on the property. Whenever we are at the property between showings, we find ourselves gravitating towards this beautiful space. The decking material itself is incredibly durable Ipe. The vaulted overhead ceilings include recessed lighting along the edge. A Boffi fan helps to augment the cooling tradewinds. The Richard Schultz furniture included with the sale is incredibly comfortable.
The ipe decking expands beyond the front lanai area. There is decking that wraps around three sides of the house creating even more outdoor living space. There is a large area off the living room and kitchen that abuts against the outdoor water feature. It faces East and catches nice light in the morning to enjoy tea, coffee or maybe even some yoga to start the day. The lanai space appears equally suited to both quiet contemplation or capable of hosting a larger gathering of friends or family.
The Outdoor Barbecue Area
With all of the outdoor space to enjoy, you have to have a good place to cook and prepare meals outside. The barbecue area overlooks the main pool. There is a sink and plentiful counter space for food prep or serving. Two 125 gallon propane tanks ensure that you never run out of gas during the middle of a barbecue.
The owner studied botany. It shows. The plants throughout the property were carefully curated just likes the home’s building materials, fixtures and furnishings. The result is a beautiful and lush environment. One of the things that is most notable about the landscaping though is that it is relatively low maintenance. There is hardly any grass to mow due to the extensive lanai areas, blue stone pathways and the use of river rock and cinder around the landscaping. A number of the palms used are self shedding varieties that don’t require trimming.
The Oasis Outdoor Spaces at Night
The Oasis truly become magical when the sun starts to go down. Outdoor lighting fixtures by Flos, Bocci and others help to take the outdoor space to a whole other level.
Other Outdoor Features
Some of the most notable additional outdoor features include:
- Tasteful fencing for full privacy
- Balinese entry gate and accent panels
- Five panel art display over the lap pool by Abigail Romanchak
- Three outdoor showers. One is perfectly located off an entry gate for a post beach rinse. The other two side by side Boffi Showers are located on a stretch of lanai between the two pools.
- Hot and cold water hose bib by the garage with numerous other hose bibs around the house
- Outdoor Bose Speaker system (wired) to a series of Sonos Amps
- Rainbird sprinkler system

Design Details at The Oasis Spreckelsville
Carefully curated. Precision Crafted. Those are the words that stuck in my head when I first spent some time at the Oasis in Spreckelsville. The quality of construction, choice of fixtures and materials and the overall interior design are all executed at truly extraordinary levels. Today’s post highlights some (but not all) of the details that help make this such a special property.
The Boffi Kitchen blends function, beauty and durability. This close up shows the beveled edged on the marble counter tops and the Corian material cabinetry.
Gaggenau appliances complement the Boffi cabinetry. They include a coffee/ espresso maker, conventional and steam combi ovens, warming drawers, induction and lp cooktops and refrigerator. There are Gaggenau wine refrigerators off the dining room.
You aren’t going to find any outlet covers in this home. The outlets are flush with the marble border along the countertops in the kitchen. Elsewhere, the outlets are flush with the Antiqua stone plaster walls.
Baccarat chandeliers punctuate the living room and dining room with personality and beauty.
Like many parts of the home, form and function combine really well together with the Porro pullout sliding closet systems in the bedrooms.
This photo of the shower in the third bathroom highlights a couple of notable design details. The Flos flower light fixtures designed by Marcel Wanders add some pop to showers throughout the home. The owner also included these flower fixtures around the exterior. This brought some continuity to the interior and exterior lighting. The book matched marble is another notable feature. This photo doesn’t completely do justice to the book matching. That said, it is a higher level of stone work than what you will see in most Maui luxury homes.
This shot shows some of the quality teak woodwork done around a door frame, but there is something else that is worth pointing out. When we showed the house to the owner of another brokerage, he reveled in the quality of the work and said it was a “design nerd’s paradise”. He also asked to take a look at the door hinges. The broker confirmed his suspicions when he observed that all screws are turned to the same position. An attention to detail that you don’t see often with Hawaii homes.
This isn’t a conventional property to market. While it offers stunning spaces that truly catch the eye, we felt the need to create a video that also captured the craftsmanship and quality curation. We welcome your feedback on the effectiveness of our efforts.

The Oasis Spreckelsville
We are proud to bring the Oasis Spreckelsville to market. Every square inch of the property well conceived and intentional. Every fixture, material, appliance, furnishing and planting carefully curated. All elements of construction precision crafted. The home and detached garage with second story apartment are nestled amidst an assortment of water features and purposeful outdoor spaces. It makes the home well suited to either quiet contemplation or entertaining a group of friends or family.
The main home features two bedrooms with ensuite baths, a third bathroom, a formal dining area and an expansive kitchen/great room. The Italian designed Boffi Kitchen has beautiful marble countertops, Corian cabinetry and Gagneau appliances.
Baccarat Chandeliers punctuate the living and dining room areas.
Boffi sinks, fans and showers, Dornbracht fixtures and Flos lighting are among other design choices that complement the nearly flawless craftsmanship. Reclaimed, oiled teak floors, book matched marble counter tops and baths continue the theme of simple elegance.
The well cultivated, detached studio apartment offers finish and fixtures equivalent to the main house and one of the coolest “hidden kitchens” around. It is a perfect guest space or even a fantastic home office.
The pools of the property offer beauty, tranquility and refreshment. The zero edge main pool is a natural entertainment space. The 64 foot lap pool is a lot more than just a work out space. It serves as a reflection pool for the lush landscaping and exterior artwork. The 6′ x 12′ garden soaking tub is a salve for the soul. A fourth water feature with fountains creates additional sensory pleasures. Multiple outdoor showers offer a place to rinse off when coming back from the beach.
Other outdoor highlights include a kitchen/barbecue area overlooking the main pool, a covered patio area that provides a rain or shine space to enjoy tradewinds, bird song and surrounding foliage. Extensive additional lanai areas make for good spaces for morning coffee or tea or an outdoor dinner party. The lush tropical landscaping thrives with surprisingly little maintenance. The landscaping combined with privacy fencing make you feel like you truly are in your own little oasis.
