Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): Another great off-grid listing in Huelo, Haiku Maui - and oceanfront!

Another great off-grid listing in Huelo, Haiku Maui - and oceanfront!

Another great off-grid listing in Huelo, Haiku Maui comes on the market - and oceanfront to boot!  528 Ho'olawa Rd. Haiku HI 96708 is a precious jewel of a property.

I can't say enough about this special country home site that's perched 120 feet above crashing waves along Maui's north shore.  See the MLS details for 528 Ho'olawa Rd. here.

What kind of buyer will be attracted to this off-grid listing on 3.9 acres with incredible white water views?  Someone with an adventurous spirit that appreciates being surrounded by wild and wonderful nature and wants to explore the land.  Someone who doesn't need all the busy distractions of a life in the city.  Someone who likes to unplug and kick back on their own schedule. It's extremely private, and not so easy to find unless you're familiar with the neighborhood.

The lot is big enough for another house site, and the top of the property offers some great views as well.  The existing home is accessed along a wooded footpath that follows the stream as it twists and turns.  Suddenly you see the cottage and a peek of the view, and then it all reveals itself in breathtaking splendor!  The short walk is worth the joyful surprise at the end.

Being off the grid means you can provide your own water from the spring or from rainwater, and power will come from the sun and/or wind.  Propane is used for cooking and heating water.  Satellite dish supplies Internet and TV.  This can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be, and in this community you'll find homes of all sizes that are embracing the concept and making it work.  It's a great feeling to know you're leaving a much smaller footprint on the earth.

Sweet dreams await in this beautiful setting

Inside, the 2 bedroom house is simple, with floor to ceiling windows and French doors that focus on the views.  The single level home has either slate or white marble floors and accents, and the sunshine makes it sparkle.  It's all about the views and extreme privacy.

Wow an amazing house with an amzing view. Wish I could buy it. I love the idea of living off the grid but my husband does not. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home with us Georgie and good luck with the sale.
