KAANAPALI – As Kaanapali Coffee Farms nears the final sellout of its Phase One, a feeling of euphoria is felt among the residents and land developer, Kaanapali Land Management Corp. And, for good reason! Only 12 estate lots remain available for sale – many with the best views – in this spectacular 51-lot subdivision in West Maui. Prices start from $855,000.

Amongst the excitement is the sales activity that continues to gain momentum. In the past two years, two homes and 19 estate lots have been sold, ranging from five to seven acres. Buyers tout the breathtaking panoramic coastal and mountain views, Napa-like feel, relaxed lifestyle, and pride of owning their very own coffee orchard as reasons for purchasing in the Kaanapali Coffee Farms community. The opportunities to build their dream home along with a full ‘ohana and third structure on their spacious lot are also among the benefits of home ownership.

The robust building activity attests to buyers’ motivation in planting new roots at Kaanapali Coffee Farms. To date, six homes have been built, seven are under construction, and several new owners are in the Design Review process.

“We had searched all over Maui and the Big Island for our ideal spot to call home when we arrived at the Kaanapali Coffee Farms,” said new owners Arvinder and Manjeet Surdhar.

“Looking out across the rows of green, now in full bloom and humming with the busy bees, the vista opened out to a spectacular view of the channel with Lanai on one side and Molokai the other. The privacy and quiet afforded by the large lots, the climate, the sunset views and the proximity of world-class beaches, stores and activities urged us to stay. The red dirt and the coffee hearkened back to our roots in Uganda we had come home.”

The flurry of activity within the community has also been fueled by the prized coffee varietals being grown on this estate and marketed under the MauiGrown Coffee brand. Indeed, the profitability of the coffee business component has exceeded all expectations, with property owners also reaping the rewards with funds helping to offset their homeowner association dues.

“It’s amazing how Kaanapali Coffee Farms has become one of the hottest real estate properties on Maui, especially during the past two years,” said Rohn Stark, principal broker of Platinum Properties Hawaii, the exclusive project broker for the development. “I encourage anyone interested in purchasing any of the last remaining lots to act now or you might miss the opportunity.”
