Wailuku Country Estates provides Maui’s best in comfort and convenient country living. Tucked back in Iao Valley, all the lots are zoned agricultural and are 2 or more acres in size. There are about 185 lots in the rolling hills just above Happy Valley. Wailuku Country Estates residents are less than10 minutes from downtown Wailuku (home of County of Maui government offices and many lawyers and CPAs), 12 minutes to Maui Medical Center and less than 20 minutes to the airport. And yet, you feel like you are escaping to a private and beautiful space. Elevations are typically 400-700 ft above sea level that provides cooler temperatures year round.
About the Wailuku Country Estates Homeowners Association
There is a active homeowner’s association. At time of this writing association dues were $95/month. About 70% of the ~185 lots have a house and/or cottage built on them. All lots are considered agricultural and driving through the neighborhood, you see a wide variety of crops being grown. The association has a private source for irrigation water that is available for $95/month however, maximum limits do apply. All roads are paved and infrastructure to each lot is in place. The potable water and sewer are provided by the County of Maui. The CC&R’s allow for some farm animals but does have limits which seem to be enforced when neighbors complain. Most lots have some ocean views and many have spectacular views.
The whole area used to be a macadamia nut farm so it is sprinkled with old nut trees. Rows of Cook Pines were planted to minimize salt air and wind impacts on the macadamia nut trees but many of those are slowly being removed to open up ocean views.
Wailuku Country Estates was established in the early 2000’s with most lots being sold in 2003-2007 timeframe. Due to the time of release and the nature of the neighborhood, the market here was hit hard 2009-2014 with distressed properties. Moving forward though, I expect that it will become a premiere choice for Island Living.
