A Bit of History

For hundreds of years, Hawaiians lived in small villages along the coast of its islands. About 500 years ago, Maui’s King Pi’ilani and his son built the “King’s Highway” circling the entire island. It was a monumental task, and sections of it are still in use today. Old Makena Road (now Makena Keoneoio) was part of that grand highway.

In the 1800’s, the Makena area became incorporated into the vast Ulupalakua Ranch. Nearby Makena Landing was used to ship Maui produce to the other islands, and to ship sugar and cotton to the Mainland. It was also a internationally known hub for shipping cattle from Manui to Kaho’olawe, which was a large cattle ranch at the time.

Up until 1912, every steamer en route from Honolulu to Hilo stopped at Makena, at the time there were more than 100 families in the thriving community. When Kahului Harbor was expanded in the 1920’s, it became the economic center of the Island, Makena Landing was no longer the focus and it fell into disuse. Little was left to attract people to South Maui, other than the commercial harvest of kiawe (mesquite) and excellent fishing. Makena became a sleepy community and remained that way for decades.

Na Hale O Makena Into the Modern Era

In recent years, Makena has been rediscovered for its magnificent climate, superb beaches and its abundant sea life. Na Hale O Makena is well-positioned to take advantage of the best of the Makena area, and was designed to be the first low-density, apartment-style condo community with the feel of single-family homes.

As a resident of Makena, you are part of the unfolding history of this magnificent area of Maui. May Na Hale o Makena truly be your “home of peaceful calm!”
