The ultimate sandy beachfront retreats

By Staff | Jul 23, 2009

The homes are located near Lahaina Jodo Mission along Baby Beach.

LAHAINA — Baby Beach is one of Maui’s most beautiful and safest. The Beach House and Maha Olu located on Halepaka Place at Baby Beach are West Maui’s most exceptional oceanfront values. The homes have recently been reduced to $6,950,000 and $6,450,000.

The two timeless Plantation-Style residences were developed by Michael Pierson, a former resident of Baby Beach. His goal was to create two separate, unique homes that would retain their original character while complementing each other. With interiors by award-winning designer Mary Philpotts McGrath and construction by 3-D Builders, excellence and quality are the hallmarks of these fine homes. The homes are located on adjacent lots close to the Jodo Buddhist Mission. Located in the cultural and historic district of Lahaina, they are just a short walk to excellent dining, shopping and activities.

The Beach House at 1189 Halepaka Place is a single-level home situated on the largest lot on Baby Beach. It is over 15,000 square feet in size with 80 feet of beach frontage. This spectacular beachfront residence includes four bedroom suites, a spacious lanai for relaxation or informal dining, a fabulous pool and negative edge spa. Features include a copper roof, custom bronze gates, a Japanese-style courtyard garden and the highest quality materials.

Just steps away, Maha Olu at 1181 Halepaka Place is its sister property. Maha Olu is a two-story home situated on a lot over 10,000 square feet in size with 70 feet of beach frontage. It, too, includes four bedroom suites, as well as a lovely pool and spa. Both homes share high-end coral stone columns, cedar lap siding, and low maintenance materials such as granite countertops, slate and ipe hardwood floors.

Both The Beach House and Maha Olu are offered completely turnkey with bikes, kayaks and beach towels waiting for the new owners to enjoy. Acquisition of both properties could create a singular beachfront estate featuring a total of eight suites on a lot over 25,000 square feet and 150 feet of lineal beach frontage.
