Exploring Pu‘uhona

A Gateway to a Vibrant Community

Pu‘uhona Homestead (previously known as Puʻunani), nestled within Maui’s Wailuku District, extends a warm aloha to the beneficiaries of the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL). As the groundwork for the 161-residential project began in May 2023, Pu‘uhona anticipates the commencement of home construction by the late summer of 2024. This vibrant community, spread across approximately 47 acres, is envisioned to offer 137 turn-key single-family homes and 24 vacant improved lots.


Venturing Beyond

Vision of Revitalizing native Hawaiians

At its heart, Pu‘uhona embodies Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole’s enduring vision of revitalizing native Hawaiians by re-establishing their connection with the land. Founded by the U.S. Congress in 1921 through the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, the DHHL-run Hawaiian homestead program stands as a steadfast support system, nurturing generational prosperity among native Hawaiians.

Deeply rooted in cultural heritage

Nearby, you'll find the sacred ʻĪao Valley, home to the iconic ʻĪao Needle, deeply rooted in Maui’s cultural heritage and historical significance. Explore the breathtaking natural beauty of Kepaniwai and its abundant natural resources.

Centrally located

Next to Wailuku is Kahului, a vibrant hub of Maui, where kamaʻāina live and work. Featuring bustling shopping centers, arts and cultural performances, numerous recreational facilities, commercial districts, and the Kahului Airport just 3 miles away from Pu‘uhona, the pulse of the island is easily accessible.
