The Haiku Sanctuary is a 9.64 acre, off-the-grid estate located on Maui's North Shore. It includes two artist inspired homes, two pools, an art studio, nature trails, fruit groves, secret spots and more.The three bedroom, three bathroom "Ocean House" is nestled in a valley at the confluence of the Puniawa and Honopou Streams. The two streams merge together before traveling another seventy-five to a hundred yards reaching the ocean. The home has its own mosaic tile pool. The lanai of the Ocean House is particularly relaxing with views of the ocean, sights and sounds of the streams, and the view and smells from the tropical landscaping. It's a brilliant combination of the right kind of sensory overload.The "Sky House" is a three bedroom, three bathroom house located at the top of the valley with vistas of Haleakala, the valley below and the big blue Pacific Ocean. The home also has its own mosaic tile pool and an abundance of outdoor spaces to enjoy the plentiful scenery.The almost ten acres of grounds include a variety of fruit trees, tropical botanicals, swaying palm trees, sprawling banyan trees, bananas, mango trees and walking paths. Most of the property lends itself to exploration, meditation or just quiet contemplation.The houses are independent from the grid. A well provides water and multiple photovoltaic systems augmented by a backup generator provide the power.
