If privacy is your new luxury, yet not wanting to be too far off the beaten path is a must, and oceanfront density is not your thing, but rather high on the hill acreage with seismic and unique to-their-own ocean/island views are - meet West Maui's Launiupoko.
Launiupoko is located at the base of the West Maui Mountains just a few miles south of Lahaina town
With its peaceful, out-of-town location, country estates feel, and convenient 25-30 minute commute to Kahului (10 mins to Lahaina). Home lots here range from approximately 0.5 acres - 15+ with the majority being between 1-3 acres. Launiupoko: the not-that-long-ago barren base of the West Maui mountains is now an in-demand luxury, agriculture hillside community. Current prices range from approximately $1.3M -$4M+.

I Mentioned “Non-CPR”
Utility (noun) u·til·i·ty - the state of being useful, profitable, or beneficial.
For those of you somewhat unfamiliar with this term, Launiupoko is an agricultural neighborhood first developed in 2002-ish under county agricultural zoning laws. Because of the larger lot sizes and permitted agriculture zoning and HOA rules, property owners are/were able to build multiple dwellings (but a limited amount) and actually sell off a dwelling under a separate TMK#. With any CPR, there is administrative and legal involved, and I encourage every Buyer to employ proper due diligence when dealing with land in Hawaii, especially when it comes to splitting up land for a sales transaction.
Other Things to Know:
- This property has yet to be CPR'd
- Big time ocean & island views
- Both potable & non-potable water meters (Agricultural rates)
- Includes an existing agricultural farm plan
- There is acreage remaining to complete the private family compound or build a separate cottage property (approx 1.5 acres)
- Approximately 5 acres of the property sits on an undevelopable preserve (the Mauka-most portion)
