The ultimate north shore Maui oceanfront estate awaits you at one of our newest listings, 900 Honokala Rd. in Haiku. If you are looking for privacy, huge ocean views, and a place to set up an agricultural estate that can support many people, this is a blank slate of sustainability in one of the best climates on earth.
27 acres of direct oceanfront living offered by the Stice Team for $2.5M (MLS# 361146)
When you drive on to this dazzling property, all you can see is green and blue. The pasture just drops into the Pacific, dotted with grazing, mesmerized, lazy cows. These ladies are the keepers of the aina and will greet you as you traverse the hillside to the oceanfront bluff.
900 Honokala Rd. has not been in commercial agriculture, except possibly sugar cane around 1910 when the mill at Honokala was in production. Therefore, the soil is free of pesticides used in modern agriculture and you have a great place to start production of organic orchards and agriculture, unlike most of Maui land presently for sale. Since I own 5 acres of old pineapple land, I personally can attest to the huge cost of trying to farm depleted, highly acidic, old pineapple fields.
Since the annual rainfall is about 70 inches, there is plenty of rain that is well spread out throughout the year. There is more than enough sun and wind to have no need to ever connect to the grid. Many of my clients have lived in this area for years, totally off the grid and county water system, with no problems and no utility bills.
Access is via a well-graded road that is shared by many owners and is 1.5 miles from the Hana Highway. It will take about 40 minutes to drive to the Kahului airport, 25 to Hookipa Beach Park, and about 20 minutes to Hanzawa’s store in Haiku to get gas and groceries. This property has clear title with full title insurance available and there may be some possibility of owner financing to qualified buyers with a large cash down payment.
Also available for sale is the adjoining 7-acre parcel offered for the screaming deal price of $499k.
Please be careful if you choose to follow the path of finding this property on your own. The cows also have a very protective bull that may greet you, so it is better to visit the property with your favorite Realtor inside a big truck.
