This beautiful Maui oceanfront estate has been called many things such as:
Jewel of the Pacific!
Unique Maui oceanfront property!
Magical seaside retreat in Hawaii!
Nahikulani means “Seventh Heaven” in Hawaiian. However, mere words fail to adequately describe this fabulous Maui oceanfront estate. Pictures are better. Being there is best!
Nahikulani (pronounced “Nah-hee-koo-lah-nee”) the name of a 5 ¾-acre Maui oceanfront estate, located nine miles east of Hana on the island of Maui.
It is bordered by Haleakala National Park and the world-famous Seven Pools which are located right next door!
The Maui oceanfront estate known as “Nahikulani” was the dream and creation of the late Jean and Bob Gillespie who built a residence on the property in 1968.
Over the years, Nahikulani has been a source of great relaxation and enjoyment for the Gillespie family. It has been both a place of sublime rest and a haven in paradise for friends and family.
Now, this Maui oceanfront estate shines like a jewel on the shores of the Pacific, bringing joy, peace and relaxation to all who are fortunate enough to be able to spend some time there.
If you have ever had the opportunity to drive the narrow, twisting road to Hana and beyond to the Seven Pools of Haleakala National Park, you know that the verdant jungle, cascading waterfalls, shimmering pools, ocean views and secluded beaches of the Maui oceanfront give one a sense of escaping the world or going into a dimension of pure joy and relaxation.
You step into this new world and immediately your perspective shifts. As Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, “Toto I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.”
If you have taken that famous drive, you passed right by Nahikulani, below the road, just before you drove across the bridge over the Seven Pools. You may even have stopped to take a picture of the classic beauty of this Maui oceanfront estate, never thinking that someday, today, you might have a chance to own Nahikulani for yourself. Nonetheless, the time has now come.
Most of the acreage on this Maui oceanfront estate is presently devoted to horse grazing. A small herd of horses is given access to the pasture to keep it from becoming overgrown.
If you have never been to Hana, Maui or the Seven Pools,perhaps a look at the map of Maui will put things into perspective for you. Hana is Far away from the hustle and bustle of Lahaina, Wailea, Kihei, Kahului and Kaanapali. Even though it can be reached by a short, 15-minute flight from Kahului, its remote location and unspoiled natural beauty offer a secret privacy, hard to find anywhere else in the world.
Because of this, the Hana area has been and is the home of celebrities and business executives who need a private escape from the bright lights of the big city.
Hana is also the home of native Hawaiians whose culture and traditions flavored the land, long before mainland and international visitors discovered the area as a place to spend a day, a week or, for the very fortunate, the rest of their lives. Life is quiet, life is serene in Hana, a place where time slows down and people actually wave to strangers as they pass on the highway, a place where the word “aloha” represents the fabric of life in paradise.
A stairway to the beach below provides access to Puualuu Stream as it enters the Pacific Ocean at the north end of the beach in front of this Maui oceanfront estate. Here, fresh water from the slopes of the Haleakala Volcano falls to the Maui oceanfront where it meets and becomes one with the crashing surf of the vast Pacific Ocean.
A short climb up the stream bed leads to a completely private mountain pool, blessed with twin waterfalls,surrounded by verdant jungle.
Moonlit evenings at this Maui oceanfront estate defy description: The gently swinging palm trees shimmer in silver as the full moon provides enough natural light to go hiking without a flashlight, At full moon, the crests of the waves crashing on the beach below glow as if made of phosphorus.
On nights where there is no moon, the entire sky is canopied by thousands of visible stars and the Milky Way paints a bright stripe across the heavens
Imagine enjoying all of this with friends while sitting in Nahikulani’s oceanfront hot tub, perched above the Pacific.
The obvious appeal of Nahikulani is that it offers seclusion from the hustle and bustle of city life and yet, this Maui oceanfront estate is near enough to civilization so as not to be cut off from it.
A grocery store, a general store, a gas station, a snack stand, two fine restaurants,
a luxury hotel, bed and breakfasts and a post office are about 9 miles away in Hana town.
Serious shopping can be done in the large, modern cities of Kahului and Wailuku, Maui, about a two-hour scenic drive or short flight away.
Kahului has a full-service jet airport with mainland and inter-island connections.
In addition, inter-island commuter service is provided by Pacific Wings on a twice-daily basis
to and from the Hana airport, located 3 miles northwest of Hana town or 12 miles from Nahikulani.
Since the area around this rural Maui oceanfront estate has never been served by city electrical power, Nahikulani generates its own, self-sustaining green power. The existing house receives its electrical power from a 40-panel solar array and a windmill backed up by a gasoline generator for those rare times when it is overcast and without wind for several days. This system has been providing plentiful and reliable power since its installation in 1999. The solar engineer who designed and installed the system lives in nearby Kaupo, Maui. Telephone service (land line and Verizon cell phone) is available to the property.
Coconut palms and banana groves abound on the property.
Totaling over 5 ¾ acres and located only steps away from the world-famous Seven Pools in the Kipahulu district of Hana Maui, this Maui oceanfront estate, known as Nahikulani, is, arguably, one of the most beautiful properties in the Hawaiian Islands.Maui oceanfront property for sale is hard to find and it is a rare event indeed when a Maui oceanfront estate of this quality appears on the real estate market.
Haleakala National Park encompasses both Haleakala Crater, reached by road from Kahului and the Seven Pools, properly known as Oheo Gulch. In between the crater and the Seven Pools are thousands of acres of protected rain forests that are home to many protected species of plants and animals.
Haleakala National Park maintains well-marked hiking trails in the Seven Pools or Oheo Gulch section of the park. The two-mile hike up to Waimoku Falls takes visitors past other spectacular waterfalls and pools
and through a bamboo forest so dense that it is dark inside even at noon.
Fresh water, natural swimming pools dot the countryside, many with their own, private waterfalls. The Kipahulu area of Hana, Maui is a truly hiker’s dream.
Obviously time and space will not allow us to give you complete details here but we can tell you that we are confident that we can answer any question that you may have about the property.
There will never be another property quite like Nahikulani.
