Chart-topping singer Pat Benatar and her husband, guitarist Neil Giraldo, have sold their plantation-style vacation home on Maui. The oceanfront home is situated on a private cove near the town of Hana.

Pat Benatar and her husband Neil Giraldo have sold their long-time holiday home in Hawaii.

The plantation-style home is located in Hana, at the eastern end of the island of Maui, and is one of the most isolated communities in the state.

It is reached mainly via the Hana Highway, a long, winding, 84-kilometre-long highway along Maui's northern shore.

The couple have owned the 2-bedroom property since the early 1980s. They were married there, and one of their daughters ...

​In comparison to many celebrity holiday homes, this one is relatively small - two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths - and with its white-painted interiors and unpretentious decor, it seems to be all about relaxing in a casual, laid-back environment.

The living room has an amazing ocean view (of course) and has been decorated with touches of Hawaiian kitsch.

The home's open floor plan and wide lanai brings the stunning scenery inside, to a high-ceilinged living room with exposed beams and skylights. There's also a good-sized kitchen and a separate tiki bar, perfect for serving up a few mai tais or mojitos.

Just behind the main house is a two-level garage and guest house, with an additional bedroom and bathroom.

The house is located in the popular Pu'uiki area of Hana. Waterfalls, fresh water pools, hiking, Hana town, and the world renowned Hamoa Beach are all within minutes. The area also offers whale watching, fishing, garden walks, coconut picking, and sea turtle sightings.

The open-plan living and dining room has a good-sized kitchen, too. Commercial grade appliances, of course.

The rock legend and her musician husband must have loved the place - they were married here in 1982, and named their second daughter Hana.

The couple's touring schedule, and their now-grown children has meant they no longer have time to use the house much, Giraldo told the Wall Street Journal. They plan to move full-time to California and, "we'll probably get a brownstone or something in New York". 

The master suite has high ceilings and also opens to the the front deck.

We love this vintage-style soaking tub in the master bathroom, but there's something outside that's even better.

It's not Hawaii unless you've got a tiki-bar sort of thing, is it? This one is at the side of the living room, with easy access to the front deck and ocean view.

The wide ocean-facing deck runs the entire length of the house, and can be accessed from both bedrooms.

Is this view worth NZ$4.1 million? We think it might be.
