The view from 972 Kai Hele Ku

Nestled on the slopes of the West Maui mountains, this stunning home blends modern elegance and island charm to create an idyllic and relaxing retreat. 

Located on over an acre of lushly landscaped grounds, it is perfectly oriented to take in the sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean framed by the neighboring islands of Moloka’i, Lana’i, and Kaho’olawe. 

This single level floor plan features pocketing sliding glass doors designed to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor living.  The chef’s kitchen is a dream with a double oven, an oversized island, and windows that open to the covered lanai and an outdoor dining area that is perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining.  

A large sundeck surrounds the spa and pool with a beach entry, which are accented by waterfalls, tiki torches, thatched umbrellas, a seating area surrounding a fire pit, and an outdoor shower, giving you the feeling of your own private resort. 

There are four generously sized bedrooms each with its own private bath.  The primary suite features a luxurious bathroom with dual vanities, a large soaking tub and a walk-in steam shower. 

Located in Launiupoko, a community known for its large lots and incredible views, this gated estate is a rural haven in West Maui.  Up the coast are the popular resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua, with shopping, restaurants, tennis courts, and golf courses.  A beautiful hiking/biking path meanders through Launiupoko, and nearby are several popular surf spots and Launiupoko Beach Park.

Nestled on the picturesque slopes of West Maui, Launiupoko is an enclave of large homesites with stunning views. This idyllic community is known for its sprawling acreage, stunning ocean views, and a tranquil lifestyle that blends open space with the charm of island living.
