Intentional Living Connected to Nature
A Sustainable Community that Honors the Land and Nurtures the Soul
Become a part of Hawaii’s first Residential Self-sufficient Community.
Hōkūnui offers large legacy pasture lots with a turnkey regenerative farming program available to owners, taking great care to conserve and restore the precious natural resources. This is a community where homeowners share a common set of values, a devotion to the health of the planet, and a desire to be part of a larger “family.” Together we are enriching our social networks, strengthening our natural resilience, and embracing diversity of all forms. Hōkūnui is perpetuating the ancient but very much living Hawaiian culture through our collective purpose: to grow, to learn, to thrive, to find joy daily, and to be responsible stewards of the environment.
Hokunui’s ideal location offers close proximity to the island’s beaches, top schools, and a wealth of activities. Mountain bike or hike in the nearby Makawao Forest Reserve, or from your doorstep, simply explore the neighborhood’s private trail network, traversing peaceful pastures and flourishing forests on foot or on horseback.
- 360-degree panoramic ocean and mountain views
- Effective land use that far exceeds specific lot ownership
- Idyllic weather due to orientation and favorable elevation
- The opportunity to grow your own food
- Access to walking paths and forest trails steps from home
- Access to pastoral and farming activities
Hōkūnui draws kindred spirits, people who truly want to live in a community that values collaboration and respect for the land. This is a special place for family and friends to find serenity, connection, enrichment, and an unsurpassed quality of life.
Hōkūnui is 100% energy and water self-sufficient. Our potable water system includes a private well that draws water from one of the cleanest known aquifers on Maui. The water is monitored by qualified third-party experts that have performed extensive testing for purity and quality. The farm and existing residences are powered by a state-of-the-art solar energy microgrid that includes an energy storage component and a backup generator that runs on biodiesel. The system is clean, quiet, robust and reliable.
Hālau Ke'alaokamaile's mission is to perpetuate the Hawaiian tradition, culture and heritage through its arts, beliefs, dance, language and agriculture. A 4 acre parcel has been donated by Hokunui to Ke’alaokamale so that their Halau may have a permanent home. The construction of a 6000 sq ft community building is well on its way. It will offer an Upcountry Historical/Cultural Resource Center, Classroom, Certified Kitchen, Ag processing area, and two dance floors.
In the Hawaiian language, “‘āina” translates directly to “the land,” or “the island,” but it means so much more. Aina doesn’t have an English equivalent, but it’s taken to mean the entirety of the land and its people — and how we take care of all that inhabit it. Just as we trust āina to take care of us, the island trusts us to take care of it. Taking that a step further, “Aloha ‘āina [love of the land]” is the foundation of Hōkūnui, this includes the forest, the pastures, the ocean, the water, and the earth. ‘Aina is the source that sustains us, and at Hōkūnui Maui, we consider nurturing nature (and vice versa) a lifestyle. This is why we strive every day to leave this place of unsurpassed beauty and bounty in a better state than the way in which we found it.
