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. ft. of interior living space and 2,278 sq. ft. of expansive lanais.
Omer said although the home is 12 years old, the famous couple exquisitely maintained it, meticulously selecting and preserving all its furnishings.
“You would think it was brand new,” said Omer. “And the buyer recognizes that too.”
The “Love is a Battlefield” singer purchased the property more than 15 years ago, where guests can enjoy whale watching, fishing and sea turtle sightings within a short stroll out the back door.
Although the home offers its residents marveled privacy and tranquility, it’s located only minutes away from Hana town, which is undoubtedly Maui's last undeveloped paradise with just more than 1,200 residents. Waioka Pond — also known as Venus Pools — and the popular Hamoa Beach are minutes away, along with dozens of other picturesque beaches, waterfalls and rainforests.
