Come Enjoy Maui Living
Having lived on Maui since 1978 and always having my hands in the dirt, I have learned many hard lessons about what grows, what doesn’t, and why. I purchased 5 acres with pineapple growing on it in 1978 with a small cottage; there were no trees, except a few guavas trees growing in the gulch.

When my son, Jeremy, arrived in 1983, we added on about 1,000 sq. ft. because there was just no room for the 3 of us. The house grew with the family. Now that Jeremy, Brianna, and Chloe are all adults, Laura and I are about ready for that little cottage again.
33 Maka’io Place would be perfect for us. Instead of 5 acres and a big house to take care of, we could scale on yard work and house maintenance. It is one of life’s cycles, you build, grow up, and then scale back and slow down.
As it currently stands 33 Makai’o has plenty of room to play in the lawn, grow want you want, or there is potential to expand with the rural zoning in place. If you want more, zoning allows construction of a main house, any size that will fit on the lot within the setbacks. You will catch some ocean views from the back of the lot if you choose to build there.
What are you waiting for? This house will sell fast, so come take a look.
