Haiku Guidebook


Haiku Real Estate is some of the most precious lands on the island. The tropical weather brings with it enough rain to keep the foliage bright green for the majority of the year. The sunny days in Haiku are as nice as it gets but they are not as frequent as they are in other places of the island. Haiku is known for its afternoon rains and evening showers. The properties here are located close to all the north shore beaches, surf breaks, waterfalls and other points of interest. The airport, large grocery stores and other places to shop in Kahului are located within a fairly short drive of the area.

“I have spent much of my life as a resident of Haiku. This area is complicated, there are many upsides of living in Haiku but there are also many things you should watch out for when purchasing property in Haiku.”

– Jeremy Stice, Realtor (B)
