“I only want a small house in the country on an acre.“ Over the course of 37 years selling real estate in Haiku, Maui, I have had many calls asking for this. So many people want to escape suburban congestion, restrictive covenants, neighborhood committees, locked gates, and too many rules - to get away from it all and move to the country.
Try 705 Kauhikoa Rd. on for size, a 3 bed/2 bath home with a 2-car carport that was recently remodeled on 3/4 acre and is listed for $599,000 (MLS# 364523). There are new appliances, flooring, and the lot was completely gated and fenced. Move in tomorrow as it is ready for immediate occupancy.
This is your chance to be free again, raise a few chickens, a duck or two, maybe have 3 big dogs, maybe add in a goat or two. You can even park your fishing boat in the yard alongside your arsenal of water toys, canoes, stand-up boards, and jet ski, because you will only be a mile from launch point at Maliko Bay for all the down winders, and Jaws take off spot in the winter.
Room to Expand
Since the yard is already loaded with mangoes, coconuts, and a bunch of other fruit trees, all you need to do is plant your garden and you will save a bunch of money at Whole Foods and Mana. Maybe you can even sell some of the extra. Can you eat more than 10 mangoes a day?
The backyard area is equally as flat as the front, has bannana and ti-leaf trees, and is very private. This would be a great location for a detached cottage.
Best of all, if you want to add a big workshop, boat garage, or even add a cottage, the zoning already allows you to do so. So give some thought to 705 Kauhikoa Rd., in Haiku, which is just outside of Haiku town.
Beauty, Quality, & Convenience Priced to Sell
With prices climbing steadily since 2011, this house is priced very competitively in the Haiku market. With the rare offering of similar sized lots in the area, this home represents a value that you could not duplicate by purchasing a vacant lot and building new. The best part is you can just move in right now, with just about nothing needed.
Haiku is about 30 minutes from Kahului and big box businesses. However, we do have Paia Town only 10 minutes away and the Haiku Town Center is 2 minutes away.

Full county utilities are on-site with high speed internet via Oceanic Cable, or DSL via Hawaii Telcom. With county water, trash pickup, and a paved road one mile from the Hana Highway, you have quick access to everything. Check out my previous post on why I love my North Shore life.
