Introducing the Stice Team’s newest listing:
Have you ever wanted to live in an area one mile from the world renown surf break “Jaws,” 3 miles from world class wind and kite surfing at Hookipa Beach, yet is situated in a botanical garden surrounded by a huge variety of tropical palms and ornamental flowers?
Better yet, would you like to have this property be a licensed Maui bed and breakfast? If you are looking for change of pace and want to slow down a little, get some waves, and maybe have your own B&B, you should look carefully at this property (MLS# 351605).
The property that is home to this Haiku Bed & Breakfast has been owned by the Wilbur Ohana for 110 years. Ron and Barbara purchased the 5 acres from Ron’s family in the 1970′s, built the main home in 1985, and constructed the detached guest cottage in 2005. There is a tremendous amount of love and care poured into this property and it shows.
Why It’s Special
- The property is immaculately maintained with lush mature landscaping throughout the entirety of the lot.
- Privacy – the lot is located across from West Kuiaha Rd. on small road that runs through the pineapple fields down the ocean. It is very secluded and even more so with the landscaping that is in place.
- 160 Nahele Rd. is presently used as a legal bed and breakfast with a very successful track record over the past several years. Recent improvements have made the property totally compliant with county building code and permits for B & B. We ask that you consult a Maui attorney about the possibility of continuing this B&B operation.
- If you are not interested in a B&B, consider this property as a piece of art as it is totally immaculate and has been taken care of by Alain and Elisabeth, the residing caretakers (cottage occupants) for the last 10 years who oversee every aspect of the grounds and property management and who would love to stay on board. Alain and Elisabeth have put every ounce of hard work,passion, and love into the property. No one knows the property better than they do—they would love to continue their efforts here.
I have a very strong personal connection with the kitchen — I milled the Koa that you see throughout this kitchen in the early 80s on my saw mill on the Big Island. Jeremy who was running around in his diapers at the time would help me move koa sawdust in his plastic wheel barrow in between eating handfuls of blueberries.
The upstairs of the home features an open floor plan with lots of windows which let in beautiful natural lighting enhanced by the rich open beam wood ceilings.
The upstairs of the home features the main living area, the kitchen, and two master suites with their own baths as pictured above.
The spiral staircase leads to the downstairs which has its own living area and an additional bedroom.
From the large deck of the main home enjoy the beautiful vistas of the valley below the property all the way to ocean and the silhouette of Molokai on especially clear days.
There are literally thousands of palms trees on the property to either pitch a hammock in between or to use an income source to pay Seabury Hall tuition like I did for my three children. A few steps down from the pool I really like the vistas from the view deck that sits below a mango tree overlooking the gulch towards the ocean.
Tropical flowers, Ti leaves, mangoes, avocados, ginger, citrus trees, traveler palms, areca palms, royal palms, princess palms, you name it and this property likely has it.
The Separate Cottage
Built in 2005, the charming plantation style guest cottage is 2 bedrooms with 2 full baths, is just under 1,000 sq.ft. of living area, and has 3 different covered sun decks. This is where Alain and Elisabeth currently live and would absolutely love to stay and continue to pour the love and hard work into this property.
Live and Love the North Shore Maui Life
Wake up early with the chickens, prepare breakfast for your guests and get out the door for dawn patrol at Hookipa or a walk on Baldwin Beach. Take your stand up paddle board because the wind won’t be up yet and grab some waves at outer Kanaha Beach. Head home and mow some grass, collect your next check from incoming guests as you check them in, and head back for some afternoon raging at Green Trees at Hookipa on your kite board.
Tired out? Head to Colleens in the Haiku Cannery for some late lunch and a siesta by your pool with your new guests. Call it a day or end the day as the wind dies for a few waves at Pavillions at Hookipa Beach on your long board.
