Experience The Pinnacle

Ten parcels are adjacent to the Kaanapali Resort South Course, directly overlooking the challenging Eighth Hole. Others are situated with a rare “wide to the view” layout, with the longest side of the parcel facing the stunning Kaanapali vistas. A gently sloping topography, meticulous property siting and maximum peak of roof elevations preserve views for each homeowner. All homesites are generously sized (18,500 to 28,000 sq. ft.) to accommodate a grand home with swimming pool and a wide setback to ensure privacy and serenity.

Come home to an elegant Maui community

Beautifully designed common areas provide privacy and a setting of contemporary Hawaiian elegance. Utilities are underground, allowing unmarred views of Kaanapali and the ocean beyond. Cast metal fencing atop natural stone walls is punctuated by palms and low hedges for a lush yet understated look. Sophisticated sliding entry gates and an internal security system offer round-the-clock peace of mind. Winding throughout The Pinnacle’s 19 acres, stamped concrete is inlaid in calm landscaped boulevards, creating a pleasing venue for both vehicles and pedestrians.

Build your dream

Esteemed Maui architect Tim Farrington, AIA, has a quality 25-year track record building luxury residential homes on the island.

Blessing of the Pinnacle Site

The Pinnacle’s Kai nehe is Blessed and Good to Go

KAANAPALI, MAUI, HAWAII –(May 14, 2003) –It was another perfect Kaanapali sunset on May 2, as an illustrious group of individuals gathered to bless The Pinnacle Kaanapali’s newest addition … the Kai nehe. The Kai nehe is a 4800 sq. ft. home scheduled for completion in 2004 and offered exclusively by Whalers Realty Inc., the host of this culturally-rich event.

Observing Hawaiian tradition, esteemed Kahuna, Clifford Naeole and Sam Ka’ai, presided over the evening and requested that the guests assist in “asking permission to change the energy of the land.” Using the traditional ti leaf which was weathered and worn but chosen for its wisdom, salt used for cleansing, and the water representing purification, Ka’ai walked the perimeter of the home site invoking the ancient chant.

Robert J. (Bob) Cartwright, Whalers Realty’s Principal Broker, acknowledged the many hands responsible for making the event come off without a hitch including The Pinnacle’s Project Manager, Rick Martin, and his Support Staff members, Tori LaPolla and Lisa Montarti. “The developers and I feel it’s very important to show our kokua … Therefore, we’d like to thank all of those who worked so hard on this evening,” Mr. Cartwright said. “I am also grateful to Clifford and Sam for bringing us all together in spirit.” Mr. Cartwright also acknowledged Elite Mortgage, Title Guaranty Escrow Services, Homes & Land Magazine, and Christian Jurgenson of CJ’s Deli for contributing the libations for the evening.

Dan Goodfellow of 3-D Builders spoke about the future of the new home: “To whoever may become the ultimate owners of this wonderful new home whether it’s several families or just one family for generations to come­, we wish them much happiness here … a lot of heart and soul has gone into planning this home.”
