Hana, Maui, Hawaii - MenehuneLandSales.com is now selling a beautiful land holding on the island of Maui and they are selling it one square foot at a time. Real estate broker Froyam Edel, following a vision in which he saw a mythical Menehune, decided to apportion his property into one square foot parcels and sell deeds to each piece. That way many could both fulfill the dream of owning a piece of the Island and have a hand in its conservation.
"On a clear moonlit night, I found myself out for a drive when I realized that I had driven to the land that I was having difficulty selling. I knew that I was there to search my soul. I was sitting in my car, praying for a sign when I sighted her, a beautiful exotic female Menehune in the light of the moon," explains Froyam Edel. Menehune (pronounced Meh-neh-HOO-neh) are legendary inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands. They work at night on projects, but only complete what can be done on that night.
Froyam believed he was under divine guidance when he initially purchased the land. Once cleared of jungle weeds, invasive plants and junk, the vista presented a view of a gorgeous waterfall, hidden from neighbors for over 20 years. Although the beautiful coastal property should have sold quickly, the sudden downturn of the real estate market meant buyers were few.
Edel was stumped until his vision showed him the way.
"Seeing this female Menehune was my epiphany. Her message was clear. Sell this land in Menehune size pieces. Allow people to become stewards of the land and keep it pristine," remarks Edel. "Nothing could have been clearer, more honest or more heartfelt." The land is now for sale by the square foot, each piece starting at $9.99 up to $36.99. "My plan means many owners will always feel a special connection to this 'aina' (land) to always hold in their hearts as a sacred place."
Edel's property is situated on Maui's scenic Hana coast and backed by taro fields. Poi, an iconic Hawaiian dish, is made from taro. It is here that most Maui taro, the starchy staple of Hawaiian cuisine, is grown. The water in which taro grows is being diverted for development by big business.
Anyone who buys a one square foot parcel gets an artistically designed deed by Cynthia Conrad (http://coloriginalsmaui.com/index.html), prominent Maui artist, which would give legal title to all Grantees. This legal deed is a fun novelty gift or award which is suitable for many occasions.
"Who would have ever imagined the possibility that land ownership on Maui could be free and clear of any obligations," said Edel. "It was divine guidance that led me to purchase the land in the first place. It was the magic of the Menehune that showed me the way to sell it."
