2 Hoaka Place: Residential Charmer in West Maui Gated Neighborhood

Look no further in West Maui if you are searching for a more modern, clean, 3 bed/2.5 bath 2-story home, priced under $800K in a gated community, that is move-in ready, “isn’t too big, or too small,” includes real hard wood flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a private fenced-in backyard with an extended deck, a garage, a recreational park – and you want it all with HOA fees under $80/month and property taxes (for an owner occupant) that are even lower…?

2 Hoaka Place: Built in 1999 and upgraded in 2006. Bring your rocking chair.

Well, if you made it through that first sentence 🙂 and are familiar with the West Maui real estate market, then you know that those types of properties are very hard to come by. They almost literally do not exist.

On the main level: an open living room floorplan and genuine hard wood flooring

In fact, as of publishing date of this article, there are currently only 2 residential properties for sale under $800K in all of Honokowai/Kahana/Napili district and none of them fit the billing described above. With that said, 2 Hoaka Pl. (MLS# 365481) is not only a beautiful home, but is the least expensive residential property for sale in this area, and a tremendous purchase value opportunity. It is officially listed for sale as of July 1, 2015.

About the Author

Jeff Onderko

Jeff Onderko is a REALTOR Broker with Hawai'i Life. West Maui Real Estate Broker, and ultra enthusiastic advocate of Maui's Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua areas. I truly believe it's an honor & privilege to call Hawaii home. For 17 years now, West Maui is where I live, work and play. My team and I specialize in resort market home and condominium sales striving to deliver the highest level of professional service possible. With $50M+ sold, a panache for extensive statistical research and 100+ published real estate articles since 2015. I'm relevant, information driven and responsive. I bring a passionate energy, an entrepreneurial understanding and a client-first approach to my real estate business. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was an independent publisher, starting and operating Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Real Estate Weeklies, Maui Time Weekly (partner), and in 2005, I was a Mayors Small Business Award finalist. In 2009, after seeing the demand and living in an under serviced pet market, alongside my Mom, Susan we opened West Maui Pet Supply. I started my career after college as an account executive with Orlando Weekly ultimately becoming their Advertising Director. Then I moved on to Advertising Sales Manager at Orange County Weekly, in Southern California. I am native of Detroit, Michigan, but grew up in Florida splitting time between Miami, Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Fl. I was a scholarship soccer player at the University of Central Florida and graduated with a BA from their School of Communication. Always attracted to healthy lifestyle, adventure, great weather, water sports and the outdoors, I moved to Maui in the summer of 2002. When the Realtor hat comes off, I'm active in the community coaching U-14 Boys Soccer (AYSO - West Side Pride) and I still play in the West Maui open division. I'm involved along with other fellow Hawaii Life comrades volunteering regularly at the Ka Hale A Ke Ola Shelter in West Maui and I'm on the Board of the Hawaii Life Charitable Fund. Through the outlet of the WM Pet Supply, I was heavily involved with the Maui Humane Society & ASCPA getting animals adopted & spayed/neutered. When I have free time you'll find me surfing, golfing, at the gym, a regular at yoga class, hanging at home with my animals or working in the backyard on my organic micro-farm (aka: food garden). You can email me at or via phone at (808) 280-4881.
