Even in Hawai’i, there are few places where you can truly enjoy the islands' natural wonders without the crowds.

But Hana, Maui is one of the state’s most untouched paradises. On all of Maui, Hana is one of the last communities where you can truly live oceanfront without having a neighbor in sight.

Located in one of the last places in Hawaii untouched by urbanization and over-development, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Hana estate is a rare gem offered for $4.8 million. 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.

“This five acre estate offers a degree of privacy and serenity rarely found in oceanfront properties,” said Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Dan Omer R(S), one of the agents representing the seller.

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. With years of experience selling real estate and spending time in the area, we asked agents Dan Omer and Megan Bouhey for some insider knowledge on their top picks in Hana town:

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

The famed couple’s Hana home was grabbed up instantly; the property closed approximately 100 days after it first went on the market, said Island Sotheby’s International Realty agents Dan Omer, who represented the seller along with Island Sotheby’s agent Megan Bouhey.

“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.
