About Mike and Island Builders

I was born and raised in California and graduated from UCLA.  After college I traveled around the world and then spent time living in Idaho and Lake Tahoe area I began to work as a carpenter, building sound stages in Idaho and cabins in Tahoe.  When arriving on Maui I worked on construction projects around the islands, building sound stages on Lani and helping build back Kauai after Inkii.  After that I started Island Builders in 1984 and begin my business.

Island Builders has enjoyed its success from the very beginning.  We have remolded countless old buildings, keeping the flavor of the small towns that dot the Islands.  These old buildings became boutiques, small art galleries, jewelry stores and restaurants all over the Island, including a small shopping center in Haiku.   As work grew so did Island Builders.   Now we are a small company of qualified men who can help you build a new home, remodel an old home, add an addition, deck or build a carport including homes or buildings with grandfather clauses.  We have excellent experience in remolding kitchens and bathrooms.


Trust is just one of the things we build well

Experience Our Customers Love

Island Builders did a fairly extensive remodel at our home. They built out a nice screened in sun room for us, a sun deck, helped us remodel some bathrooms and add on an additional bedroom. They worked diligently, stayed in communication with us, and were a pleasure to work with. We would hire them again.

Mike, owner of Island Builders Maui, has worked on many different projects on my custom home on Maui.

He is reliable, and completes projects on time and within budget.

I recommend Mike for all your building needs.

Dee Dee Ackerman

Island builders were able to bring our idea to life from conception to completion. We had always dreamed of remodeling our family home in Haiku but had absolutely no idea where to start. Island Builders under promises and over delivers by nature. They have been in business in Hawaii since the 1970s and for good reason. After speaking with Mike, we established a solid plan for renovations within our budget, and were totally stoked with the results and finished product.

Anthony Sayles

When I looked for a licensed contractor to upgrade my 60 something year old remodeled home, it was more difficult than I had imagined. Island Builders provided the knowledge of working not only with new construction but an older home requiring the expertise and craftsmanship that they had. Thank you, Mike, for the fine work you did for us.
