Haiku Town Acres - An Update on Maui's New Subdivision

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.

Haiku Town Acres - An Update on Maui's New Subdivision

What the Developer Has In Store for Haiku Town Acres

This is a follow up to my previous blog, "New Development In Haiku, Maui, Haiku Town Acres."

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.

Water

Haiku Town Acres will be supplied by a 465ft deep well. The well will be located to the left of the entrance on Auwaha St, across from Kauhikoa. The 300,000-gallon holding tank will be located at the southwest corner of the subdivision at the back of the cul de sac. The well seems to be chlorine treated, which is common practice on Maui.

Electricity

The subdivision will be supplied by underground power. This is good news for neighbors looking to keep their view planes free of power lines. I was also curious to know if there were to be numerous street lights, and it looks like only two (one at each entrance) will be installed. I personally like to keep the light pollution down; Haiku stars are some of the best.

Landscaping

The developer is required to place basic landscaping along the roadways and seed green areas. On the prints, it looks like they will be placing Milo Trees and Bottle Brush Trees along the main streets. The grass variety they chose is St Augustine. Of course, once the lots are purchased, they can be planted which ever way they wish. Ag zoned lots are protected by the Hawaii Right to Farm Act 165; this helps keep the country, country.

According to the University of Hawaii Rain Atlas, this area receives 59.3 inches of rain per year. Due to this, the developers have installed 8 retention basins throughout the neighborhood.

What Land is Currently Available in Haiku?

This project is still in the works, so I have gathered up all of the active land listings over 2 acres in Haiku. Here is the link to all 43 properties. Give me a call or shoot me an email, and we can go into specifics on any of these lots.

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,

Two Great New Deals on Agricultural Land in Haiku, Maui

Just as the deals seem like they have all dried up in Haiku, we decided to bring you a belated New Year's present. We have two parcels located near the intersection of Pakanu/Upper Ulumalu/Waipulani, which are two great Haiku real estate listings that offer some real upside potential.

#1. 40 Waipulani Rd. (2.5 Acres Vacant Land)

The first property is a vacant land parcel that is 2.5 acres with full utilities available and a county water meter priced. This property has two nice building sites, ready to go.

Vacant lot

2.5 acres of vacant land in Haiku (MLS# 358663)

The topography is varied on this lot. An intermittent stream runs through the lot and there is a large flat area in the middle of the lot that would be perfect for farming along the stream bed. Right now, there are many wild coffee trees growing here. 

Zoning allows one large home and a farm dwelling that can include 1,000 sq.ft. of living area. You also may build other farm related structures such as barns, packing sheds, and agricultural fruit stands. Priced at $349,900, this is the lowest priced 2 acre lot in Haiku with a water meter. This lot does not have an ocean view.

#2. 811 Upper Ulumalu Rd. (2.5 Acres with Home)

The second property is also 2.5 acres, with a plantation-style house about 900 sq.ft., and a large covered deck on two sides of the house. The house has been recently remodeled with a new kitchen and appliances, interior and exterior paint, all new windows and doors, and many other upgrades. 

Cottage

2.5 acres with home (MLS# 358868)

This property is adjacent to the vacant lot above and could be part of a compound including a house and farm dwelling on each lot. Half of this property includes a forest of 100-foot tall Eucalyptus Robusta, which are a timber grade tree, widely used on island for construction on Maui in the 1970s when Helle logging had a mill in Puunene. So, buy a small mill, mill your own lumber, and build a cabin.

I actually owned a Mobile Dimension mill in 1982 and we milled a lot of Eucalyptus in the Olinda area that was used for fencing and some construction projects on Maui, so this is a real possibility.

This property also has full utilities, an existing cesspool that services the present home, county water, phone and cable nearby. Price is $599,900.

Live the Haiku Life

I live in very close proximity to both of these properties and can show both of them on relatively short notice. I have lived in the area since the late 1970s and am very familiar with the climate, developing land, and various agricultural endeavors, and love living my Haiku life - let me show you the way.

Aloha from the listing broker,
