Our home

Ocean views, lush tropical surroundings, and lots of windows make living in our house feel like living in a high end tree house. Stainless appliances, teak furniture, organic building materials contribute to our zen sanctuary feel. No cable access or game cubes, but two large tvs for viewing dvds/ videos. Wireless internet access. Child/teen friendly, with family games, books, and some toys:surf boards, skate boards, windsurf equip (need to verify competency to use), trampoline, 3 acres of jungle to romp in., Ideal opportunity to see how a real family lives in tropical Hawaii (no suburbia, our 'Big Mall' is 1/2 hour drive away).

Property features

Who we are

  1. Husband Chip and wife Tamara are both in their early forties. Son, Sheyne, is 11, and daughter, Meghan, is 9. We have built several homes on Maui, and currently consult for construction projects. Chip is also a realtor, and Tamara is a teacher and Nia instructor. We are focusing on living life fully and passionately. We are inspired by the work of Marshall Rosenburg for Non Violent Communication, Dr. Phil on Building a Phenomenal Family, Marianne Williamson on Enchanted Love, among others. We love to read and play together, and have decided to spend our children's middle school years homeschooling and traveling around the world. We want the flexibility to return to our beloved Maui periodically, for the water and Mana of this truly sacred paradise on Earth. While traveling, we are happy to share our home and way of life with others who would appreciate the opportunity. Likewise, we are excited to get to experience life in new and varied locales, opening our hearts and minds to other beautiful people on this earth.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Paved and partially paved single lane country road (please observe speed limits!) services 30 homes before dead ending at the ocean. 10 minute steep hike to gorgeous secluded rocky beach with ancient Hawaiian heaeu (sacred grounds). Our property is 1/4 mile from this beach; it is an easy stroll and particularly magical to walk under the full moon! Homes in the neighborhood are an eclectic mix of old hawaiiana, vacation rentals, and owner-builder unique designs. Extremely quiet and private. Property is gated and my mother lives in gatehouse at the top. 4 wheel drive needed for auto access our house, which is further down in the valley (can easily park up top and walk down the hill). Would consider car swap.
