The North Shore of Maui is one of the rawest and exposed stretches of land in the world. The trades cross 2,500 miles of open ocean and carry along with it all different types of weather.
Each week I have been looking over the permits and plans on county sites to keep my clients informed on what's happening around them. I read over all 117 pages of the subdivision plan, and this is what I came up with.
Recently I've had many clients approach me about the new subdivision off Haiku Rd. I dug up what I could find through permits and and title searches and here are my findings. Any plans in with the county could change, but this is what I can currently find.
Looking for seven acres along a stream, almost oceanfront, in Haiku, Maui? If so, try 715 Honokala Rd. on for size.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
