Spotlight on Launiupoko: One of West Maui's most popular neighborhoods

What is the Launiupoko Neighborhood like?

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. The area is zoned agricultural, providing a perfect blend of natural beauty and rural living, making it one of Maui's most sought-after locations. 

In Launiupoko, you will note the presence of many CPR "Condominium Property Regime" Properties.  The CPR process allows a property owner to create a minimum of two separate condominiums (most typically a main home lot and an ohana lot).  There can be additional "condominiums" which are for ag use only.  Read More about CPRs

Launiupoko Market Insights

Launiupoko's real estate market is one filled with nuance due to the large number of CPR'd properties. The diversity in pricing, acreage, view, and size of homes caters to a wide range of buyers. The location at the South end of West Maui is close to Launiupoko beach park.  It has some of the largest homesites in West Maui, yet is one of the closest communities to Central and South Maui, making for a shorter drive to Kahului and Wailuku.

This comprehensive snapshot of the Launiupoko real estate market highlights the variety of opportunities it offers. Whether seeking an area to farm, large acreage for a peaceful retreat or a private estate, Launiupoko has a variety of options known for their phenomenal views.


*When looking at properties in Launiupoko it is important to look at whether the property being offered is for a main home plus an ohana or the ability to build one (No CPR), or if it is for a main home only, ohana only, or farm land only.     

**While the Maui County guidelines may dictate an Ohana CPR building should be no more than 1000 sq. ft. some as builts vary and some listings include other structures that may or may not be permitted, such as a barn.
