Split-Level Maui Meadows Home with Detached Cottage in Kihei

The question is inevitable when you talk about Maui Meadows, an upscale hillside neighborhood in South Maui, high above the luxury resort of Wailea: Does it have a million dollar view?

Ocean View Maui Meadows Half-Acre Property with Home & Cottage

There is a reason that properties at the top of Maui Meadows sell at a premium – the ocean views are often breathtaking. The massive ocean views from the large, wraparound lanai, living room, and kitchen of 831 Kumulani Drive (listed at $1,495,000) goes a step further: unlike many vistas, this one is untainted by power lines and is spectacular from both inside the split-level home and the deck.

Split-level Maui Meadows home (MLS# 353540)

With a spacious 2,753 square feet on more than a half acre, and an income-producing detached cottage in a private corner of the property, this Maui Meadows property offers its new owner plenty of options.

Currently, the main home is divided into two distinctive living spaces:

  1. A split level 2 bedroom/1.5 bath space of around 1,800 square feet that includes a full kitchen, expansive master bedroom with oversized bath, and massive walk-in closet
  2. A smaller guest bedroom

Windows address nearly the entire ocean-facing side of this space, and the views are incredible from inside, and from the deck.

The ocean view from the deck

A Jacuzzi is perched off the deck, which is partially covered and which meshes seamlessly with the interior space, creating a very private, open-air retreat of almost 1,000 square feet.

Additional Property Features

1. On the ground floor of the property, with an entrance purposely diverted from that of the space described above, a guest cottage adjoins the home, with one oversized bedroom. Spacious and tastefully furnished, this attached quarters creates a nice blend of privacy and proximity. The attached guest cottage could easily be incorporated into the primary living space by merely removing a span of sheet rock in a closet (hard to describe, but easy to explain on site.)

2. The detached cottage is income-producing and is located in a private corner of the property; it is currently occupied by a long term tenant.

3. The property is not a drive-by: in fact, it cannot be seen from the street, as it’s located off a long flag lot that provides access to only two properties. Unlike many streets in Maui Meadows, there is none of the drive-by traffic that affects many properties.

4. The grounds are tastefully designed and tended, with an impressive mix of fruit-bearing trees, raised vegetable gardens, and shady retreat.

I’m a neighborhood expert; I currently have two Maui Meadows listings (also please see MLS# 354011, 745 Kupulau Dr., $1,695,000), and have another property there in escrow.
