Land meets sea at the $ 15 million Hawaii home of windsurfer Great Robby Naish
What better home for a world-class windsurfer than with trails leading down to the ocean?
The legendary Robby Naish’s Hawaiian estate, which includes half a mile of rocky coastline, is up for sale for $ 15 million. On Maui’s north coast, the 73-acre property encompasses Kealii Point and sits between Uaoa and Pilale Bays.
The main gate is marked by an eight foot tall tiki statue carved from monkey husk wood. Palm trees line the driveway leading to the 6,000 square foot Hawaii Plantation-style home, which is surrounded on all sides by lawns and meadows.
A portico houses the raised entrance to the front of the house. Double doors open to a high ceiling foyer with a grand staircase. A large room with retractable doors opens to stunning ocean views, a covered flagstone veranda, and a waterfall-fed pool with spa.
Paneled ceilings add visual interest, and wood floors continue into the center island kitchen, which opens to a breakfast room. There is also a formal dining room and bar in the open plan space.
Built in 2005, the home features five bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a home office, and a gym. A solar power system, along with a private well, keeps utility costs to a minimum.
A 2,000 square foot store has plenty of room for ATVs, jet skis, and surfboards.
A pioneer of kitesurfing and stand-up paddleboarding, Naish is the founder of the equipment manufacturer Naish Sails Hawaii. He rose to fame in 1976 when at age 13 he won his first windsurfing championship.
Naish has won two dozen world championships, among other accolades. He is part of the PWA Windsurfing Hall of Fame and the National Sailing Hall of Fame.
The estate is approximately 11.5 miles, or approximately 25 minutes by car, from Kahului Airport.
Josh Jerman and Tim Stice of Hawaii Life are the listing agents. The property, at 600 Haumana Road, Haiku, Hawaii, is under contract.
