For the ultimate in privacy and rural island living, check out Kahakuloa homes. The village is situated at the base of Kahakuloa Head, a 647 foot tall hill that towers up from the beach. It is rather rare for Kahakuloa real estate to come on the market, so act quickly when you see a house that would suit you.
Kahakuloa homes are usually one of a kind architectural gems. The most famous is probably the Maui Clifftop House, which was on the cover of Dwell magazine, one of only two homes in Maui to be featured.
There are some luxury gated developments in Kahakuloa, including Cliffs at Kahakuloa. Maluhia Country Ranches still has homesites for sale. Buyers can work with an architect to build the house of their dreams. Wherever you choose to live, you’ll be able to revel in cooling trade winds and experience amazing ocean views. Houses situated on the hills offer panoramic views of the ocean, nearby islands, and the stunning West Maui Mountains.
Kahakuloa is ideal if you want to enjoy picture-perfect beaches with deep blue waters. There are also lots of hiking trails. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day out.
Though the community is mostly rural, there are a few businesses in the village. Grab a snack of fries, shrimp or a smoothie at Braddah Chic’s Stop. Enjoy homemade treats at Julia’s Banana Bread. Find the work of local artists for sale at Karen Lei’s Gallery.
For more shopping, hop in the car and drive the 10 miles into Old Wailuku Town. Pick up groceries at Whole Food Markets, Safeway or Costco. Maui Marketplace is located there, too, and has plenty of retail shopping, as well as cafes for a quick bite to eat. Wailuku is also the location of the closest medical care, with professional offices and Maui Memorial Medical Center.
