Refreshing seaside breezes flow through a plantation-style cottage surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and mountain views, offering Zen-like tranquility in West Maui. Bright, airy gathering spaces encourage open-air living amid views of breaking waves and misty panoramas of West Maui Forest Reserve. The captivating one-bedroom, two-bath residence has a flex space (think yoga studio or artist’s retreat) and three-car garage on 4.55 tropical acres edged by swaying palms, a citrus orchard and the Olowalu Stream which tumbles down the mountains into the sea.

This relaxed waterside cottage is located in Olowalu Makai, a special agriculturally zoned community on West Maui’s coastline south of Lahaina Town.

The acreage offers tranquility, solitude and over 300 linear feet of ocean frontage in this exclusive and intimate gated enclave.

With a history as a whaling village, Lahaina Town’s mainland counterpart in the U.S. is Nantucket, also known as a whaling capital but in opposite parts of the world. The rocky shoreline at the ocean’s edge is conducive to water sports like kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and amazing snorkeling in the turquoise waters.

Built in 2007, the home is detailed with authentic Hawaiian plantation-era features as seen in the high-quality craftsmanship, ocean-view outdoor shower made from native stone and breezy covered lanais. This home has all the modern amenities, craftsmanship and materials as well as a design for outdoor living. The cottage is just over 1,000 square feet with the ability to build a main luxury residence on the site per the building covenant.
