Create Your Own Sustainable Estate on Maui’s North Shore in Kailua Country Estates
Ready for a change? Are you looking to get away from the crowds, and tired of relying on someone else for most of your needs? Do you crave a simple lifestyle where you can grow your own food and be master of your own estate? Are you ready to cut the cord and be independent and self-sufficient? It can happen — and especially here on Maui with our mild climate and relatively low population. Some of us are already living the dream.
Kailua Country Estates
This location in Haiku Maui could be where you build your home/farm and get away from it all. Kailua Country Estates is a small gated community of 12 lots spread over about 65 acres and surrounded by vast open space. It’s below the famous road to Hana, and about a 45 minute drive to the airport in Kahului. It’s lush and fresh, remote yet not isolated. The ocean is so close you can hear the waves crashing on shore. Deeded view preservation corridors ensure that each home will always have ocean views, and neighbors also have privacy. The well-maintained private road has a fire truck turn around at the end, so emergency vehicles can confidently come and go. You don’t realize how important this is until you need it!
Maui’s north shore gets ample rainfall throughout the year, making rainwater harvesting a viable method to supply all your needs. The climate is perfect for growing many things including tropical flowers, palm trees, fruit trees, and vegetables. With plenty of daily sunshine, photovoltaic panels and batteries are also a great source of household power, so you won’t have to be connected to the local electric utility — though Hawaii Electric service is available at the property. Wastewater will be handled with a septic system, which is typical for the area. But what about the internet? This neighborhood is blessed with fiber optics!
What’s for Sale?
320 Hanauana Rd. is a lovely 2.24 acre Agriculture Zoned lot where you can build two dwellings and other outbuildings. It’s been cleared and fenced, with incredibly low property taxes in place. Mature palm trees and kukui trees are scattered around. Rock wall terraces help to divide and shape the land, creating a nice boundary for a driveway. A building site where you can watch the sun or moon rise over the ocean is ready for you. Build a home, plant some trees and gardens, get a few chickens, and you’re home free! It won’t be long until you’re kicking back and reaping the rewards of your labors.
A Rare Opportunity
Lots like this don’t come along very often these days. 2 acre lots on Maui are becoming harder to find because they’re not being created anymore. Subdividing AG land now results in 5 acre lots, or larger. Many of the former 2-acre parcels have been CPR’d, meaning you can buy 1/2 acre or 1 acre with building restrictions, and not a “complete” lot. With these 2.24 acres, you get the full allotment for buildings. Don’t pass this one up!
