528 Ho’olawa Rd. in Huelo, Maui Offers Breathtaking Views & Privacy
Another great new oceanfront listing hits the market on Maui’s north shore. 528 Ho’olawa Road boasts some of the most incredible ocean views you’ll find, along with extreme privacy and seclusion.
Can you get used to this view?
The 3.89-acre parcel is long and narrow with a significant change in elevation from the entrance gate, descending to the point at the oceanfront where the single level home is situated 120′ above the crashing waves.
528 Ho’olawa Rd. Haiku, Maui (MLS# 372212)
These owners saw the beauty of the land when they bought it and decided to build the home at the most extreme spot possible to take advantage of the incredible views. This meant creating a footpath through the woods, along the stream, to reach the building site tucked in between a vast open pasture to the West, and raw State Land to the East. No other neighbors or buildings in sight, just beautiful nature and the tropical hues of greens and blues.
The sweet 2 bed/1.5 bath home is bright and cheery with white marble floors and accents. Lots of floor to ceiling windows and French doors enhance the views and let the light in. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves, and wake up to the sound of bird song in the forest. Your eyes will be drawn to the exceptional views from every room. A pared down Euro-style kitchen means you won’t spend a lot of time cooking up elaborate meals. Just relax and enjoy all the natural beauty that surrounds you in this wild setting.

Second Building Site
Another great building site greets you as you enter the property, and it doesn’t take much imagination to picture a custom home built here with super ocean and mountain views. With this size lot, you are allowed to have 2 dwellings as well as other buildings, such as a detached garage or workshop. There is already a nice storage shed near the top portion.
Second building site
This part of Maui is known for being very sustainable, and in fact, the word Ho’olawa means “to make complete.” Power and water needs are supplied on site. There is a spring in the stream near the house. You could also harvest rainwater as there is plenty of soft rain falling from the sky, and no restrictions on using it.
Photo-voltaic solar panels provide the energy to store in batteries for running the household power. Propane is used for the cook-top and the on-demand water heater. Satellite dish provides internet service and TV.
This property is so unique it might not be for everyone, but it would be suitable for those who seek privacy and quietness, and the desire to detach from the rest of the world. Bring an open mind and some good walking shoes, and be prepared to get blown away by it all. I’d love to show you this special spot in person if you’re qualified to buy.
