Hawaii Life is honored to list 555 Kaukini Loop, Wailuku on the island of Maui. This 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is located on a 2.34-acre agriculture zoned lot. The owner of the property is the five-time Grammy award winning and the 2022 Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, George Kahumoku Jr.

As impressive as Uncle George’s musical accomplished are, his knowledge of Hawaiian farming techniques and the healing properties of native Hawaiian plants are equally impressive. Uncle George has created a working farm on this property. The farm supplies fruits and vegetables to local restaurants, helps to feed Maui’s disadvantaged and has been a classroom for future Hawaii farmers.

As a real estate professional, where 48% of my previous sales have been properties that are zoned agriculture, I have heard so many people tell me that their dream is to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs. Some folks are motivated by self-sufficiently, some for commercial purposes and some to give back to the community. Of course, many of them just don’t know how to get started. That first step is always the hardest.

This reminds me of an old joke. When is the best time to plant a tree? 20 years ago. When is the second-best time to plant a tree? Today.

In this case, the farm is already started and tree are already planted and bearing fruit. This is a huge head start over buying a vacant lot. In addition to fruit trees such as bananas, guava, oranges, ruby grapefruit, lemons, and limes (partial list), Uncle George is growing vegetables (taro, spinach, kale, long eggplant and tomatoes just to name a few) and a various types of herbs.

Uncle George has a long history of using natural indigenous native Hawaiian farming methods. He is also a trained Native Hawaiian practitioner in natural farming where they interplant legumes, grasses, fruits, vegetables, herbs, teas, feed, and wind breaks instead of monocropping.

Of course, this listing is more than a farm. It is also a very nice 4 bedroom, 3 bath home.

The floor plan aligns with my personal tastes for floor plans. The great room – kitchen, living room, eating area – are in the center of the house, the primary bedroom with attached bath and a secondary bedroom are to the left of the great room and the other two secondary bedrooms with a bathroom are to the right of the great room. The secondary bedroom next to the primary would make a great office or a bedroom where proximity to the primary is needed. The other two bedrooms delivers privacy from the primary bedroom.

There are very nice ocean views from the lanais. You look out toward Kahakuloa. On this side of the island, you get some wonderful sunrises and even with the sun setting on the other side of the West Maui Mountains, some nights give you wonderful colors when the sun sets.  The moon rises can also be pretty impressive, especially when there is a full moon.

The property is located less than 15 miles and about 35 minutes northwest of the Kahului Airport in The Cliffs at Kahakuloa subdivision. This is the sibling subdivision and located just north of Maluhia Country Ranches.

Eugene, if you follow the link in the first line of text directly below the very first photo, it will bring you to the MLS listing. I was curious, too. It says 2.4M and offers a lot more photos.
