Maluhia Country Ranches is a subdivision developed in the early 2000's in the area called Kahakuloa, in the north western part of Maui. This subdivision features large agricultural zoned parcels, starting at 2 acres, allowing owners to benefit from beautiful, uninterrupted ocean views and lots of privacy. Being located about 25 minutes away from Wailuku Town and aproximately 30 minutes away from Kahului airport, this area is a good option for those that like large acreage, in a luxury neighborhood with a very enjoyable climate. Not too hot, not too cold and close to town.
Maluhia Country Ranches is probably one of the very few gated communities in Maui that would allow farm animals, thus this is a horse lover's paradise. There are no dedicated horse trails, but gentlemen agreements would allow access to such trails.
The water supply for Maluhia Country Ranches is represented by two private wells that are administered by Kahakuloa Water Partners, a non profit entity set up by the owner of this subdivision, the smaller subdivision of the Cliffs at Kahakuloa and a few other individual owners. While the cost of the water itself is very affordable ( more affordable than what Maui County could offer, if that was even a choice) , there are additional costs, shared by all owners, regarding maintenance and necessary improvements of the water system.
As for other utilities, there is electricity offered by Maui Electrical Company; some homes have photovoltaic systems and there have been a few discussing the possibility of building a wind farm. Hawaiian Telcom offers phone services and Dish Network offers cable services. All homes have septic systems in place.
Manicured, lush landscaping and dramatic cliffs made me call Maluhia Country Ranches the Switzerland of Maui. Add to that some of the best views of the ocean, Kahului harbor and Haleakala Mountains and you truly have one of the best spots on island.
