Three Stunning Hawai‘i Homes Being Showcased by Forbes Global Properties
Haiku Estate at Keali‘i Point on Maui’s North Shore
This beautiful 73-acre estate located on Maui’s North Shore is one of three stunning Hawai‘i homes represented by Hawai‘i Life that currently are being showcased by Forbes Global Properties. This spacious home is the custom-built residence of champion windsurfer Robby Naish. Which makes sense, since Maui is known as the windsurfing capital of the world. Located in Haiku, the home is close to some of the best big wave surfing and windsurfing spots in the world.
Built in 2005, the estate on Kealii Point is tucked between Uaoa Bay and Pilale Bay, on an elevated sea cliff that juts out, boasting half a mile of private coastline. It is here that Naish, now 57, became a pioneer of both kiteboarding and stand-up paddleboarding, and trained to win 23 World Championship Windsurfing titles.

The property’s stately driveway is lined on either side with palms and leads to the spacious, elegantly decorated 6,000 square foot home that encompasses five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a private gym. The great room includes a well-appointed chef’s kitchen, bar, and dining room that overlook the ocean and the property’s expansive green lawns and resort-style grounds.
Pocket doors disappear into the walls in the great room which features beautiful cove ceilings and polished wood floors. The expansive living area opens to an enormous covered lanai with ocean views. The outdoor pool features a waterfall and spa.
This Maui property includes a guest wing and a 2,000 square foot barn, with plenty of room for extended family, visitors, and a home office. It’s located near charming small towns, farmers’ markets, and close to conveniences like Whole Foods, Costco and Target. It’s also a short 25-minute drive from Maui’s Kahului Airport.
Other conveniences include an on-site, private well, and a photovoltaic system. Though the property is attached to Maui’s power grid, it makes for a very sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle. This private compound has private trails that lead to the shoreline for easy access to the ocean swimming, surfing, diving, and fishing for which Maui is known.
Ultra-Modern Design in an Exclusive O‘ahu Enclave
Nestled on the hillside above the Mokulua Islands on O‘ahu, this estate home is an expression of contemporary elegance not often encountered in the Hawaiian Islands. The home’s extraordinary architecture and interior design are rivaled only by its spectacular natural setting in the exclusive Lanikai enclave, located on the east-facing coast of the island of O‘ahu.
The home’s ultra-modern interior was informed by the rich, vibrant colors of the landscape and spectacular ocean and island views. The home’s design combines curated premium finishes in a neutral color palette and floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase one of the most iconic and sought-after views in Hawai‘i.
