Why This Hawea Point Property Deserves $37.5M | 9 Bay Drive, Kapalua Maui
Much has been written about the meta-luxury home at 9 Bay Drive. But the setting is what distinguishes this property from all others: this understated yet elegant home showcases a whole peninsula of your own in the midst of the already very exclusive resort of Kapalua on Maui. It’s a landmark 10-acre property bordered by 12 acres of land, which is protected by the Hawaiian Island Land Trust and can never be built on. The location is irreplaceable.
The views from Hawea Point are inimitable, from Lanai to Molokai and up to Honolua Bay…
The home is up high on a lava rock point, which provides privacy and security far above the ocean yet an easy stroll to the Montage Resort in Kapalua with world-class amenities.
The never-ending front lawn leads down to your own lighthouse and a rocky peninsula with pebble beaches and coves known as Hawea Point and Dragon’s Teeth.
The land out front of this home is a nesting ground for the ‘Ua’u Lani (Wedge-tailed shearwater) and is culturally significant conservation land with restricted access.
A beautiful walk north along the lava rock coastline trail north leads to the long sandy beach of Oneloa (Ironwoods) and further North past the Ritz Carlton, DT Fleming Beach (pictured).
Walking to the south side of the property, a private stairway leads you down to Nāmalu Bay and this jump-off point by the Cliff House… Kapalua Resort and the sandy Fleming Beach is on the next bay over.
All on one level, the 12,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor living makes you feel like you are in a private resort. Attention to details and finishings like thick glass countertops feel hip yet noble.
Listed at $37.5M, you might expect a showy house with swans in the pool or 24-carat gold turtle mosaics. But this 8-bedroom home radiates elegance with the just-right blend of contemporary Hawaiiana and local artistry with sleek design.
