Youâ€™re dreaming of a very special place. A place of utter tranquility and inspiration, where the night sky is filled with stars and the only sounds you hear as you linger on your graceful expanse of lawn are the whispers of gently quaking coconut fronds, and waves breaking on a perfect crescent of white sand.
Thereâ€™s no need to waken from your idyllic vision. Dixie Maru Cove, named for a shop lost in the Ka Iwi channel during a by-gone era in Hawaiian history, offers a rare opportunity to live your dream. Step through the tropical gates and meander down the path to the private retreat youâ€™ve been yearning for.
Set on almost 30 pristine oceanfront acres, the propertyâ€™s (MLS# 347362) one bedroom, two bathroom â€œsurf shackâ€ is the ultimate in environmentally-friendly design. Sustainable building materials include red eucalyptus, Douglas fir, ironwood, coconut, and lava stone from Hawaii, Bali, and Borneo. Known to locals as the â€œMolokai Barn,â€ itâ€™s the ideal place to hang your boards.
Youâ€™ll need plenty for friends and family whoâ€™ll want to share the perfect (deserted!) left and right breaks beckoning only a few steps and a paddle from your front door. The cove shelters a colorful reef teaming with marine lifeâ€”the ultimate snorkelerâ€™s heaven. The catch of the dayâ€”mahi, ono, papioâ€”waits just off the rocky point. Imagine firing up the barbecue and sipping on a cool drink after a long day playing in the surf, lazing in a palm-strung hammock, and sailing your Catamaran along the shoreline.
Being offered at $3,400,000, the propertyâ€™s original plan, created by one of Hawaiiâ€™s preeminent environmentally conscious architects, includes several island â€œhales.â€ A romantic, Asian-inspired tea house â€œfloatsâ€ on a man-made, water-lily studded pond. Use existing plans, or let you imagination go wild as you manifest your own version of Heaven on Earth.
The island of Molokai is deeply imbued with Hawaiian culture and mana (spirit). It is the birthplace of hula and the inspiration for Israel Kamakawiwoâ€™oleâ€™s (Brother Iz) unforgettable version of â€œSomewhere Over the Rainbow.â€ Verdant valleyâ€™s, abundant waterfalls, and glistening coastlines, one step on the Dixie Maru property and youâ€™ll know thereâ€™s no place like home. Your new home-your dream come true on Molokai.
