When it comes to luxury, you will not find a property that fits the definition best. Did you ever see the star that shines down bright at the base of Haleakala? It’s a White Star and a menagerie of excellence. A sought-after address on Haleakala Highway, close to fine restaurants, shopping and outdoor recreation, White Star Ranch has a two-story cottage with a two-bedroom accommodation as well as a main home that feels like a retreat, with a lovely spa area and top-of-the-line finishes throughout, including an indoor/outdoor sound system. This adds to the drama in the evening, when the many life-size bronze-sculpted pieces are illuminated from the outdoor up lighting. Being sold completely turnkey, the White Star Ranch is truly beyond words.

Once you arrive at the White Star gated entrance, you know you have arrived, where you are greeted by a life-size bronze horse and buggy (one of the many pieces of art displayed throughout the walking trails and included in the sale). Mature landscaping from all over the world lends to the park gallery ambience. There are gazebos for shade to take in the incredible ocean views and sunsets towards West Maui. Or maybe a game of chess or checkers on the bigger-than-life game board is how you might like to spend an afternoon. The interior of both properties carries out the retreat feel with fireplaces, rock walls and murals, such as the custom-lit ceiling aquarium to the steam room and sunken jacuzzi with view. This property is being sold together with an adjoining half-acre privacy buffer lot. All you have to do is enjoy and start entertaining, as this property is being sold completely turnkey. Truly a luxury property for any buyer, it is proudly listed at $1,795,000. This property is easy to view for qualified buyers.

In Kaanapali on West Maui, never before offered with a newly added downstairs master suite, 180 Kalaihi Place is an outstanding family home located in The Kaanapali Golf Estates on the Kaanapali Kai Golf Course. With four bedrooms and four baths, this home is just about 5,000 square feet and offers two master suites (one upstairs and the newest addition downstairs). There is a dining area and den area along with an airy, spacious living area. There is a three-car garage that has improvements.

Having a golf cart in Kaanapali is a lifestyle within itself. You can take your golf cart to Whalers Village for shopping, dining and going to the beach, or if you just want to visit a neighbor but don’t want to walk, hop in the golf cart and away you go.

Many Kaanapali residents love patronizing the world-class resorts located within Kaanapali proper. If you like to walk, they are a nice walk away or a very easy golf cart ride away. Some people take their golf cart to the resort then walk the boardwalk, which can go all the way to Front Street and north to Honokowai. The saline pool at 180 Kalaihi Place with a southern exposure is very inviting all year-round, and the winter sunsets over the island of Lanai always seem to be exceptional. This neighborhood has always been sought-after because of the half-acre lot size, creating privacy between neighbors. This property is being sold completely furnished – all you have to do is bring your personals. Pride of ownership shows throughout.

This luxury home is easy to experience personally; just give us a call, and we will get you in. It is proudly offered at $3,399,000.

Look into the distance and the horizon of the ocean, and you may see a beautiful Hawaiian sea turtle bathing in the sun or a seasonal humpback whale breaching into the sky out of the sea, or look up to the shining White Star at the base of Haleakala and imagine Maui lassoing the sun and pulling it into the house of the rising sun. Maui is “No Ka ‘Oi” – the very best!”
