Haiku Maui oceanfront lands for sale – cliff edge properties with amazing views

What does it cost to buy some oceanfront land in Haiku Maui?

First off, oceanfront land in Haiku is not going to be at sea level, so you don’t have to be too concerned about ocean levels rising.  The cliffs along the north shore provide plenty of elevation above the surf and tides.  Fisherman trails along the shore allow access in many spots, but not for the casual traveler.  Be prepared for some rugged trails and dangerous conditions at times.  Shoreline access can be tricky, and there are no sandy beaches to be found, only rocky bays and deep ravines.

There’s such a nice selection of large and small properties for sale along the north shore, if you consider 2 acres to be a small parcel.  The current MLS listings have been on and off the market, and there are others that come and go too.  I find it curious that so many attractive and useful lots are not being snapped up, to be developed now or further down the road. 


Stretching from Maliko Gulch to Kailua Stream, the terrain ranges from vast fallow fields where pineapples once grew, to cattle grazing land with waterfalls.

Kai Poi Place lots for sale:

All of these offer stunning ocean views and a mostly open landscape, and the ability to have a private estate with easy access to Paia and Haiku towns, the surfing and ocean lifestyle.  My favorite is the 20 acres which has an easy trail to a rocky shoreline and seasonal stream.



How do I get to Kai Poi Place?

You need to exit the Hana Highway at Kai Huki Road, at the Peahi Farms entrance.  Follow Kai Huki until it connects with Kai Poi and follow that until it takes you out of the Peahi Farms subdivision towards the oceanfront lots. 

These lots are not part of any Home Owner Association…

They are not part of the Peahi Farms development, but share the access from Hana Highway.  Owners of lots along Kai Poi Place have a dedicated easement.  There is no monthly HOA fee.


Peahi Farms:

Peahi Farms is looking better all the time.  Take a quick peek as we drive through this agricultural development and admire the ocean views and blue skies. See if this is where you’d like to build a house and cottage.

The developer has made big changes so new owners can pretty much build what they want, and there’s fewer restrictions.  Ask about the incentive being offered to the next couple of builders in this neighborhood.
