Space. Room to Roam. Seclusion. Privacy. They all seems to be in short supply on our shrinking planet. Marlon Brando once said, “Privacy is not something that I’m merely entitled to, it’s an absolute prerequisite.” Perhaps, that is why Mr. Brando was the one time owner of the property that we just listed in the Huelo area of Haiku on Maui’s North Shore. This 26.7 acre parcel is situated along a quiet country road on the ocean side of Hana Highway. Many of the neighboring properties also have substantial acreage which only adds to the sense of privacy. The land itself is a mix of meadows, tropical forest dotted with stately common mango trees and swaying coconut palms.
There is a three bedroom/two bath home on the property. The pole house style home also draws from the influence of the Hawaiian Plantation Style with big lanai spaces that invite you outside to enjoy the natural splendor. Flooring in the house is a mixture of bamboo, tile and sisal. While the first floor has great views, the vistas from the second story loft and decks are truly extraordinary. Looking Mauka (towards the mountains), you can see the Koolau gap on Haleakala and the vast Koolau Forest Reserves. This extensive rain forest area is a sea of green. Looking Makai (towards the ocean), the ocean view is so expansive that you can literally see the curvature of the earth.
This is a great place to unplug, both literally and figuratively. The home is off the grid with power by photovoltaic system with generator back up and water via catchment.
While the home offers both seclusion and privacy, you aren’t too far away from the island’s conveniences and amenities. You are within 15 minutes of Haiku town’s groceries and restaurants. The galleries, shops, and restaurants of Paia and Makawao are within 20 minutes. The airport in Kahului is approximately a half hour’s drive.
