Maui is such a beautiful place to call home that many rich and famous people have discovered this island and own a house or vacant land here. They can afford it, as either a primary residence, or a second or third home. Sometimes they need to sell their Maui properties, making them available for lucky people like you and me.
While I don’t claim to have a map to all the star’s homes, I can steer you to where a few of the north shore celebrity homes are being sold.

What Do These Special Properties Have in Common That Makes Them so Appealing to Celebrities?
Privacy and seclusion are big factors; being able to go home and unwind without any prying eyes watching every move. They also appreciate the simple life with homes that are not ostentatious and over-the-top as you might expect. Leave the McMansions to those who crave the attention. So if you want to live large like a celebrity, but still keep it real, consider owning one of these homes and you can have the bragging rights that come with it.
