New Upcountry Maui Development Offers Excellent Opportunities

There hasn’t been a new development in Upcountry Maui for a while. Things are about to change.

Kua’Aina Mauka is a proposed development located on the lower slope of Haleakala in Pukalani town. The location is convenient to existing shopping, restaurants, and a golf course. Pukalani began developing in the 70’s and has continued until present. The location is perfect for people who want to escape the city, yet be 15 minutes away from malls, warehouse stores, and the airport. The air is cooler and the views can be amazing.

The project consists of 32 homes, 16 houses, and 16 cottages. Each of the 16 lots are split into 2 CPR units. One unit will have a house and the other a cottage, both owned independently. The development will have a homeowners association.

The developers are currently accepting non-binding pre-registrations. A pre-qualification letter from a lender must be included with your pre-registration form. Contact me to discuss the process further.

Aloha Ken,

I was browsing through the internet and came across this website where eventually homes of Kuaaina Mauka will be built. Do you know when it will be built? If so how does it work? Do I need to fill an application and is it based on qualification?

> Jenalle,
Thanks for reading my blog. Do you have an agent yet? The developer is hoping to accept deposits in late fall. Are you looking for the house or cottage? The cottages are in more demand. You must be prequalified with a lender and submit that prequalification with your application. Let me know if you have any other questions. 808.344.6421
