Waiehu Kou 3
A Resilient Hawaiian Homestead Community
Waiehu Kou Phase 3, Maui, Hawaii.
On January 28, 2005, the Waiehu Kou 3 subdivision on Maui came into existence. The first of 115 homes were turned over to their new owners by the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, (DHHL).
The Waiehu Kou 3 subdivision consists of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes. Of these, 79 were developer-built and the remaining 36, were owner-builder construction. The average size of each lot is 8,000 square feet, with homes ranging in cost from $99,850 to $235,850.
Our community is made up of a diverse cross section of native Hawaiians from Maui, other Hawaiian Islands, and the continental USA.
We enjoy a beautiful, breezy climate with a peaceful life-style. Waiehu Kou is connected by good roads, within close proximity to both Wailuku, the county seat, and Kahului, the commercial hub and main harbor on Maui. The roads north of the sub-division get narrow and zigzag as they pass through Waihe’e town going toward Kahakuloa and Lahaina.
The focus of our Board of Directors, in conjunction with our Hui Chief network is to provide our homesteaders with a viable means of presenting their concerns and working through implementing solutions that consider diversified community input.
Food Security has been identified as a priority we as a Hawaiian Homestead Community wish to establish and see it’s synchronization with the mandate of the Hawaiian Home Act.
We are thankful for Prince Kuhio’s vision of returning the native Hawaiian people back to their aina and find truth in the saying, “Maui No Ka ‘Oi”.
Waiehu Kou on a clear day.
