Lovely Olinda. Romantic, private hideaway with expansive views, and incredible privacy in a tranquil, natural setting.

Amazing sunsets and views of the Kihei coast, Lanai, Molokai and the North Shore. Terraced, established gardens, mature fruit trees and lovely, peaceful setting. Unassuming driveway off of Olinda Road leads you to the intriguing, private, jacaranda-lined lane to this properties retreat setting. The cottage and gazebo are at the top of the property so the main home's extremely private & quiet. The closest neighbors toward the view are the cattle grazing on the hundreds of acres of neighboring ranch-land. Just minutes to Seabury Hall and charming Makawao town, yet infinite in its expansiveness, sheltered setting & peacefulness. The location of these 5 acres gives one the sense of being on hundreds of acres. Broad level areas of lawn provide great open space for adventure by day, viewing the vast starry skies by night...or offer ideal positioning for a future pool or tennis court. Land offers variety of terrain and setting from exhilarating open space to intimate glades of forest; a gently sloping hill-side or the avocado tree-lined gulch; from the terraced beds of Protea and azaleas glowing in the morning sun to the sweet afternoon shade below the canopy of the pink-blooming Japanese garden tree. If you need additional room, this home was pre-designed with the option to expand by extending one wing of the structure. Built-in barbecue/sink entertainment area on multi-level lanai, which also fully embraces the amazing view.
