Rock star Pat Benatar and her guitarist husband Neil “Spyder“ Giraldo are offering their secluded Hana estate for $3.6 million.
The oceanfront home perches atop a private cove that's minutes from the sleepy town of Hana. As recently featured in Wall Street Journal and Mansion Global, the famed couple lived there full time with their two daughters for several years until about 2009. Island Sotheby’s International Realty agents Dan Omer and Megan Bouhey are listing the home, which offers breathtaking views that sweep from the Big Island to Haleakala crater.
Hana is known as one of Maui’s most pristine jewels with dozens of waterfalls, freshwater pools and hiking spots scattered throughout the area. Located minutes away from Waioka Pond — also known as Venus Pools — and the popular Hamoa Beach, the famed rocker’s home is reminiscent of Hawaii's plantation era, but equipped with luxurious modern amenities.
“They wanted to get away from it all, and this is the ultimate escape,” said Megan Bouhey of Island Sotheby’s International Realty. “It just takes your breath away when you’re there.”
With just more than 1,200 residents, Hana is the last undeveloped paradise on Maui. The “Love is a Battlefield” singer purchased the property more than 15 years ago, its residents and guests can enjoy whale watching, fishing and sea turtle sightings within a short stroll out the back door.
With manicured Hawaiian-style rock walls and lush gardens, the home offers a tropical escape from the rest of the world. The home is offered fully furnished, with 3,295 sq. ft. of interior living space and 2,278 sq. ft. of expansive lanais.
“It’s a plantation-style design with an island, tropical ambiance,” said Bouhey. “But it’s luxury.”
The estate is selling as two separate parcels. The luxury Hana home is offered at $3.2 million, while a 1.08 acre property behind the house is offered at $400,000.
