With Earth Day soon approaching, you’ll surely see articles or tips on how live more sustainably and protect Mother Earth. But at this Haiku property, you’ll make a positive difference all year round.

Imagine being able to live off your own property in paradise, where you can grow your own food, use energy from the sun and live organically. At this stunning Haiku home, you can do just that.

This two-acre property offers the epitome of farm to table living in comfort, boasting almost every upgrade a property owner could think of undertaking. The property's four-bedroom home and cottage are virtually off grid, powered by photovoltaic panels and two Tesla Powerwall backup batteries.

“This house has everything you'd ever want to do to the house but would never have time to do,” said Island Sotheby’s International Realty agent Mino McLean R(B), who’s representing the sellers with agent Sam Utley R(S).  

The four-bedroom home also has a mother-in-law suite, which is entirely separate from a three-bedroom, two-bath guest house.

“If houses had an organic label, this would qualify,” said McLean.

You can truly live off the land with a 1,100-square-foot aquaponics greenhouse that produces fresh tilapia, which helps fertilize the abundant vegetable garden. Beets, carrots, kale, rainbow chard and broccoli are just a few of the veggies and herbs grown there.

But that’s not all. A one-acre food forest spans the property, which offers fruits and veggies including taro, papaya, mango, cacao, avocado, citrus and breadfruit to name a few. Free range chickens and ducks lay approximately 30 nutritious eggs a day, while a bee hive keeps things sweet.

“Every day is earth day at this rare Haiku find,” said McLean. “You can basically live entirely off this property.”
