Price newly reduced! Iao ("cloud supreme") Valley, a place of legends, heroic deeds & ethereal natural beauty renowned throughout Hawai'i for more than half a millenium! The mana (sacred life energy) flows strong & deep here, where the ancestors whisper to us across time & space through the wind, water, trees & stones. Hyperbole aside, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire the largest undeveloped tract to be offered publicly for sale in Iao Valley for decades, two parcels: TMK 2-3-5-001-019 (1.679 ac) & TMK 2-3-5-001-084 (1.148 ac) forming a private, lushly forested refuge totaling over 2.8 acres. Water meter is installed at road adjacent to driveway; cable, phone & electricity are also available there. Minutes from the charms & amenities of old town Wailuku yet worlds away, this legacy land is crisscrossed with dormant auwai (irrigation channels) marked by pohaku (boulders) hand-placed by the ancient ones when this was a vast kalo lo'i (taro patch). Kalo, the center of Hawaiian agricultural society, was so vital to the survival & prosperity of kanaka maoli (native Hawaiians) it was considered an elder sibling. The kuleana (responsibility) for the next caretakers of this sacred place will be to aloha 'aina (love the land), proceeding lightly & with great sensitivity to remain in harmony with the ebb & flow of the natural forces that formed & continue to shape this valley as well as the people who inhabit it. In return, the aina will embrace you & yours, providing a place of ulu pono (abundance), ola (health), nani (beauty), ho'onanea (leisure) and aloha (love) for generations to come.
