A Perfect Maui Cottage – Sunset Cocktail Views From Your Pool in Launiupoko
So you want a modest cottage on Maui, with a little land, tropical landscaping, and amazing ocean views?
Another fiery pau hana West Maui sunset from a Launiupoko pool
- Does close to the beach sound good? (How about a 2-3 minute downhill drive?)
- Around 1,000 sqft of living space with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms? (Easy to maintain and clean!)
- Maybe with another 1,000 sqft of covered lanai (porch) to fully enjoy the warm tropical days and star-filled nights? (You will spend a lot of time outside on Maui.)
- Perhaps a small, low maintenance pool offering panoramic ocean and outer island views to round out the package? (Think sunset cocktails.)
Nice view from the lanai! Hot tub up top, and pool down below
Sorry to ask so many questions, but this is important! It’s your Maui Life after all. And, it is possible. Here at Launiupoko on West Maui, many of these agriculturally zoned cottages have been CPR’ed. It stands for Condominium Property Regime. Use the links to contact me at the bottom of the page and I can explain further if you are not familiar with the term.
However, it is not inexpensive. It is Maui after all. With the most recent Realtor Association of Maui statistics showing the median single family home in Maui costing $635,000, it will most likely run you anywhere from $1,000,000 to $1,800,000. But, this is not the ‘median’ home.
But it will likely be either the perfect downsized home for your relocation to Maui, or the perfect sized second home. And located in arguably one of the best neighborhoods on this beautiful island.
