Oceanfront Luxury Property with Unrivaled Privacy
One of the main attractions/selling points of this property is the incredible level of privacy that it has. Privacy is rare for oceanfront properties in Hawaii; the coastline is a desirable place to live, there’s not a lot of it, and nothing close to the size of this offering. 400 Manawai is a world of its own yet is located just 35 minutes from our main airport and shopping commerce in Kahului.
The “mana” or spiritual power that this property possesses is raw and invigorating. There is nothing like standing on the edge of the lush coastline, breathing the pristine air that has filtrated over thousands of miles of ocean, smiling at the radiant sunshine warming and bringing light, and the powerful feeling in your chest as the waves crash into the shoreline.
Half a Mile of Oceanfront Maui
400 Mehana (MLS#373586) is being offered in conjunction with 402 Mehana Rd. (MLS#373587). This incredible offering consists of two separate parcels encompassing 34 acres of pristine and secluded oceanfront, and a large single level custom home with about 8,000 sq.ft. under roof and a breathtaking cliff top guest cottage overlooking Uaoa Bay.
The adjoining 13 acres is offered at $2.75M (MLS#373587).
Beset beneath the mighty Haleakala, the lot gently slopes towards the ocean. It is situated on sea cliff top about 300 feet above the ocean, this property offers uncompromising privacy with no neighbors nearby, unblocked, direct oceanfront views that can never be obstructed, and with all the amenities of modern living, this property has no peer anywhere on Maui.

Flexible Property Options
Because these two parcels are being offered both separately or together, you have many options. If you need additional dwellings, you may construct a very large house and a 1,000 sq.ft. farm dwelling on the 13 acres. Since the property is agriculturally zoned with no restrictions on livestock, you may run all the horses and cattle you want to graze the pasture. In fact, if you do raise livestock, you will be able to have a lower tax rate as a rancher, provided you follow county guidelines.

Large Acreage and a Perfect Valley for Horses or Farming
The lesser known portion of this property is the 5-acre valley to the east of the main house. A historical road follows the contour below the cottage and takes you to a pristine valley situated along Uaoa Stream ending in a huge seasonal waterfall that plunges into an oceanside pool. There is a trail that you can traverse down to the shoreline for fishing, diving, and beach-combing. Rarely do you see anybody on this shoreline, except the occasional fisherman.
The opportunity to set up a totally sustainable homestead is at your fingertips. The property has a well, water storage tank, good exposure for photovoltaic and wind power generation, fertile soil for farming, and warm annual climate that allows year long agriculture that can’t be found in most temperate climates. It also enjoys the benefits of DSL internet, public electricity and water– you have the best of both worlds.
The Main Home
The home was built by a well-known Maui contractor, Steven Wormser, who owns Crown Construction and lives nearby. It features construction designed for oceanfront living with a slate roof, copper flashing, stucco exterior, and large eves covering the entire house. All living rooms have ocean views and open onto the surrounding decks and into the interior courtyard with gardens and koi ponds.
The entry Porte-Cochere was designed using Feng Shui concepts to create a grand but balanced entry into the home, You enter through the courtyard gracing the fish pond and directly in the main living area of the house, which opens to breathtaking views of the ocean.
Whale Watching from the Cliff Top Cottage
The cliff top cottage is perched on the edge of Uaoa Bay. In the winter, huge waves crash into the bay, and it is full of humpback whales as many mothers come to this bay with their newly born calves.
The mesmerizing lanai on the cottage is a perfect location to watch the sun rising from the east in Hana, or to relax and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening as the serene views and soft trade winds caress you and lull you to sleep.
Possible Seller Financing and Bed and Breakfast Operation
The seller has authorized us to share that he may be willing to carry paper on the property for a qualified buyer with a substantial down payment. Reach out to us directly if you’d like to discuss this.
This would be an absolutely perfect property to set up a legal bed and breakfast operation with the caretaker living in the cottage and running the operation in the main home. Please understand that there is a substantial process that needs to be adhered to in order to have this property legally permitted for this operation.
