This home is owned by world famous food author and former owner of Health Valley Foods. Of his over 10 published books he is the author of two massive volumes of THE WORLD'S HEALTHIEST FOODS. The house is a Tom Rixey architectural design. The house went through a six month refurbishment prior to going on the market so the condition is superb.

To enter the house through the golden oak double doors you walk over a long travertine tiled bridge over several ponds and four cascading water falls and rock-scape accentuated by a huge mural of a Hawaii jungle with exotic birds and fauna of the islands. This is a very dramatic feature before entering the house. Once inside the foyer you are captivated by the spectacular sweeping ocean, island and full west Maui Mountain views that only the upper Heleuma Place front row houses have. This view is by far one of the best Wailea Resort offers and must be seen to be believed.
