Coming home to Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms

It was always Mac and Alex McCarney’s dream to live in a place that had beautiful weather, kind people and lots of outdoors. When they discovered the Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms community in West Maui, they found everything they were looking for … and a lot more.

In 2013, motivated to escape the busy city life of Richmond, Virginia, the McCarneys decided to plant new roots on sunny Maui.

“When we first saw Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms, the birds were chirping, the breeze was whispering through the coffee fields, and we were absolutely in awe of the peace and tranquility we felt here,” said Alex. “We were drawn to the expansive five acre lots and the expansive views like no other we had ever seen in our lives.”

“We were motivated to buy a lot at Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms because there is a tremendous tangible value in this community,” said Mac. “This neighborhood is spacious, well-maintained, it has a beautiful unified look throughout, and we have an awesome neighborhood association that looks out for the lot owners and their investments. The intangible value is the coffee farmers themselves. They really care about the integrity of the land and the harvest they put to market. And, if you really love quality coffee, like we do, you can’t forget the owner’s discount at the MauiGrown Coffee Company Store in Lahaina. There’s so much to love!”

“Mac grew up in a small farming community in Iowa and Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms reminds him of those childhood days happily running through the fields,” shared Alex. “This Maui agricultural community provides our young family the room we need to stretch our legs and explore.”

Other families also share the McCarney’s love of this community, and interest continues to be high.  In the past 18 months, 16 lots have sold, 3 lots are currently in escrow, and homes are continuing to be built. Only 17 prime five to seven-acre estate lots are available, prices start at $795,000.

The McCarneys are counting the days until they can live full-time at Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms.

“We regularly take picnics on our farm lot; hike through the fields; ride bikes on the paved roads; and one day when we move into our new home, our kids will be able to play freely in this really safe community,” said Mac. “Living at Ka‘anapali Coffee Farms is our dream … we can’t wait to come home.”
