There is almost nowhere on Maui where you can find five acres of pristine oceanfront property — let alone a parcel that’s located within minutes of waterfalls, fresh water pools, hiking and the famous Hamoa Beach.

After 22 years, Van Halen’s Sammy Hagar has decided to part ways with his oceanfront estate.

“It’s like island living inside the house,” Hagar told the Los Angeles Times. “This place is like a painting.”

Situated atop the azure waters of Waipio Bay in lush Haiku, Maui, the 9.8-acre, cliffside retreat is being offered for $3.299 million through Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Becky Hanna.

“It can be the most perfect place on earth,” said Hanna.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath villa is situated on one of Maui’s most sustainable properties, equipped with solar-powered electricity, a private water well and water catchment. There’s also a tilapia pond, fruit trees and a terraced vegetable garden, allowing for

From lush, tropical waterfalls to pristine, secluded beaches, Hana is one of the last regions on Maui that truly feels like Old Hawaii. There are, however, so many natural wonders to explore that it's often hard to choose what to do once you get there. 

Fortunately, there are a couple Island Sotheby's International Realty agents that know the quaint town like the back of their hands.

Rock star Pat Benatar and her guitarist husband Neil “Spyder“ Giraldo’s Hana estate has sold for $3.1 million.

“It’s an incredibly well-maintained property,” said Omer. “It was quite obvious that they paid a lot of attention to the home.”

The oceanfront home is nestled atop a private cove that's minutes from the sleepy town of Hana, where Benatar and her husband lived with their two daughters for several years until about 2009. The home was offered fully furnished, with 3,295 sq.

Hana town is Maui’s last undeveloped paradise.

Just more than a two hour drive from the Kahului Airport, Hana is one of the island’s most pristine jewels —  and one of the last remaining areas of Maui that truly feels like yesterday’s Hawai’i.
