The developer at Honua Kai has just recently released the last one bedroom unit for sale. Konea 148, a ground floor one bed/one bath unit of 780 sq.ft. has recently been released at $850,000. Konea 148

This ground floor property is a just a few steps from the pools, BBQ, and beach at Honua Kai

Video of Konea 148 Exterior

Here is a video that I just shot today after going to the gym at Honua Kai. I would be happy to get you a video of the interior should you be interested.

This property is not actively listed on the MLS but I am very familiar with the property having been in it several times and being an owner at Honua Kai myself.

Konea Pool Feature

What Makes Konea 148 Special?

  1. Accessibility – Ground floor units are not for everyone but many people with kids really love the convenience of being able to have the kids run around outside on the grassy area, and easy access out to the pool and beach.
  2. Strong rental income – The smaller units at Honua Kai have some of the best cash on cash returns of any real estate in the entire state of Hawaii and the ground floor units at Honua Kai do particularly well. I have seen rental income statements from comparable units where the gross rental income exceeds $90,000.
  3. Great location – This particular property is located one stack back from the front of the building, meaning that it is steps away from the pools, BBQ area, and most importantly, the golden beach that fronts Honua Kai and the inviting Pacific Ocean. This particular location is very private with little walk-through traffic, and the area is heavily shaded during the majority of the day and gets nice trade wind exposure to help keep it very comfortable without the A/C.
  4. Spacious unit w/ high ceilings – This particular unit has 11-foot ceilings and 780 sq.ft. of interior living area, which makes it the largest one bedroom floor plan at Honua Kai.

Streamfront Haiku 7 Acres with Ocean Views & Multiple Building Sites

Looking for seven acres along a stream, almost oceanfront, in Haiku, Maui? If so, try 715 Honokala Rd. on for size. Huelo 7 acres

The blue outline shows the approximate property boundaries from a property survey overlay

This is a fantastic value at $550,000. If you are looking for a spot larger than the standard two acre lots you find on Maui at about the same price, you may want to consider this property (MLS# 361900). Located 1.5 miles off the Hana Highway in Haiku, Huelo, Maui, you have great roadway access and are a short hop to the civilized world.

7 Acre Oceanview Site

Property Features

There are several different sites for building with ocean views. This property has many options as it has a stream that crosses through that runs almost all the time. If you want to do some agriculture, there are several flat areas, currently in cow pasture, that should offer great productivity for your gardens and orchards.

About 3 of the acres follow along the stream and have huge old trees along both sides. There are some huge mango trees that could be 100 years old and a few tall old coconut trees too. With the varied topography, you have the option to create multiple sites for structures and gardens.

The property is being sold with a deeded easement over the adjacent 27 acres to a site that borders the oceanfront state owned property. A trail can be created from this spot to directly access the small bay below, which has great fishing and diving, and occasionally a very private surf break.

HueloParcel30Acres-7867

This area does not have any utilities available, so you will be a dedicated off the grid owner if you take the challenge. All nearby owners have water catchment tanks because the annual rainfall is around 70 inches. Power is generated by photovoltaic and wind systems. Internet is via satellite link.

If you don’t want utility bills, and you want to eat what you grow, take a careful look at this sustainable property. Unspoiled by paved roads, street lights, and utility poles, you only have the blue Pacific, Haleakala Volcano, and the Milky Way in your view.

Just Listed: 10 Acres in Haiku on Maui’s North Shore – So Near, Yet Faraway

So near, yet faraway oceanside acreage, ocean view, with power and water in Haiku, Maui Kahiapo Ocean View

10 acres in Haiku offered by the Stice Team for $799,000 (MLS# 362066)

If you are looking for a property on the North Shore of Maui that feels like you are oceanfront, with a beautiful building site, graded and ready to build, with a Maui county water meter installed, and electricity at the site, this is your spot, 112 Kahiapo Place.

Property Features

These 10 acres offer a huge variety of topography with the prime two building sites at the top of the lot, looking directly down the valley to Puniawa Bay in Haiku, which is about 1/2 mile from world famous Peahi Bay, known as Jaws.

Zoning allows two living structures, so you can build a large main home and a separate “farm accessory dwelling” of 1,000 sq. ft. of living area. Zoning still allows multiple farm accessory structures, such as barns, greenhouses, packing sheds, and well houses.

Gardens

There is about a 200 foot vertical drop in to the valley below with a 4-wheel drive access road that leads down to a production vegetable farm that is currently being cultivated by the present owner.

Included also are 15 producing lychee trees, rollinia trees, banana, java plum, and large mature old mango trees along the stream. Most of the cultivable land lies on both sides of the stream along the valley floor and is rich alluvial soil deposited over the eons by periodic flooding. This land has been cleared and is ready to plant.

Prime Location

Most similar properties like this lie much further to the East, with difficult access or longer travel time from Central Maui. This property is located 6 minutes to Haiku Town Center, 8 minutes to Hookipa Beach Park, and 25 minutes to Kahului airport. “So near, yet faraway” is truly an accurate description of this beautiful property. You feel like you are in Hana, yet you have all the convenience of being 6 minutes from the grocery store, restaurants, and the health club.

Aloha from Haiku,
