Maui Wowie: A Tropical Retreat in Hawaii Is This Week’s Most Popular Home

We offer a hearty aloha to the most popular home on® this week. Located on Maui, this lush and luxe Hawaiian compound warmed the heart of chilly mainlanders.

The mansion known as Paradise 808 Maui will require a buyer to dig deep. At just under $23 million, it’s out of the reach of most buyers. But in 2019 we all deserve a little time to fantasize about island life, right?

This week’s runner-up is a place far, far removed from the Hawaiian islands. However, this charming storybook cottage in Pennsylvania is known as the “quaint house of stone” and managed to spark joy with folks looking for a cozy retreat.

Outside of the top two, you were also entranced by a T. rex gobbling up buzz in Virginia, a fantastic mini farm in Maryland, and a SoCal megamansion with a $38 million discount.

For a full look at all of this week’s most popular properties, simply scroll on down.
