Moana Estates (Ke Alii Kai II)

project type


year completed


Settled on 28 acres in Kihei on Maui’s south shore, Moana Estates is a beautiful development comprised of 90 single-family homes featuring a meandering dry stream bed and a public park with soccer field and comfort station. Towne Development of Hawaii retained MASON to design the one- and two-story higher end homes with three to five bedrooms.

Designed in a contemporary Hawaiian style, the 90 homes featured broad overhangs, generous covered lanai, and trellises to take advantage of the exceptional ocean views from the second floor and maximize indoor/outdoor living. In accordance with Moana Estates’ design standards, the buildable areas were sited to protect open space corridors; the roadways meandered gracefully through the development; the houses maintained deep and varying setbacks with full front yard landscaping; the roof and wall colors blended well with the environment; and utility lines were installed underground.

The homes are sited to preserve view planes, and utilities are underground.
