Wailea Caravan 10/14/14

One of my favorite days is the Wailea Caravan Tour! Today was bundled into twos: two homes, two vacation rental condos, two residential condos. So, let’s get started with my review.

But first, I had to pull over on the way – it is so beautiful here.
Wailea Morning

Kanani Wailea 22, MLS362304, 3B/2.5B with 1984 sq.ft. List Price: $925,000 Maintenance Fee: $1150.45/month
You can’t beat this price point for a home in Wailea. Kanani Wailea is a condominiumized home set-up, so your monthly fee takes care of the pool, gym, landscaping, and exterior maintenance. Located at the top of the complex, you will hear traffic noise from the Piilani Highway when you are standing outside, but the moment you step inside, the quality construction eliminates the noise.
And there is a sweet ocean view from the master bedroom.
Solar panels keep your electric bill low. Priced to sell at $925,000!

4366 W. Waiola St. Wailea Golf Vistas MLS362316 3B/4.5B with 6123 sq.ft. List Price: $3,800,000

If you are seeking a Golf Vista home with an outstanding home office – with a view – take a look at this beauty. Wide open space is the great feeling you get here – in every room.
Golf Vista
Handicap accessible with an elevator for easy access to each level, even the master bath has a shower that you could wheel inside effortlessly.
Golf vista bath
This property has obtained permits and approval to build an infinity pool that overlooks the 1st tee box of the Old Blue Golf Course.

Wailea Elua Unit 2109 MLS361960 List Price: $1,699,000 for 2B/2B with 1536 sq.ft.
Enter through the gate, turn left, drive to the end unit on your left and you have arrived at a very private vacation rentable Elua unit with a double garage to store all your ocean toys.
Some of the special highlights of this unit are the ocean view lanai that you can step out on from the living area as well as the master bedroom.
The second bedroom has a tropical garden view with palm fronds dangling. Love the easy care travertine floors. There is another lanai off the dining room area and a grassy semi-private yard to frolic in. I would be happy to send you a video of this unit, as well as the rental history – just let me know!

Wailea Ekahi Unit 21B, MLS362311 1B/2B with 952 sq.ft. List Price: $1,195,000
Ekahi 2
Literally steps from the ocean side pool and Keawakapu Beach, this 1 bedroom unit is located in the lower village of the ocean front Ekahi complex. The floor plan parallels the ocean and there is a peek-a-boo view from the lanai.
There is a sweet grassy area off the lanai and the topical bougainvillea and fragrant plumeria constantly remind you that you are in Hawaii! This unit is vacation rentable and I would be happy to send you the rental history.

Wailea Fairway Villas Unit P202,MLS362012, 2B/2B with 949 sq.ft. List Price: $629,000 Maintenance Fee$634/month
The P Building is a great location – close to the pool, club house, and gym – and let me mention the outstanding view. This is being offered turn-key, fully furnished which make it perfectly easy for the new owners. The 2nd story location only enhances the view.
Did I mention the view already?


Wailea Fairway Villas Unit V-102, MLS362198, 2B/2B with 949sq.ft. List Price: $619,000 Maintenance Fee: $634/month
A nice residential complex, this unit has been well-maintained. Located in the V Building, the ground floor location looks out over the golf course.
Carefree living in the resort community of Wailea.

South Maui Caravan 10/7/14

South Kihei Caravan

I love to share my thoughts as new properties come on the market!

The Maui Realtors Association makes this possible, dividing the island into sections. Still, as we move into fall, more inventory is coming on the market and it is difficult to see everything in the allotted two hours. Today’s opportunities were numerous. There was a nice mix of residential and vacation rentable condos on display today. Again, it is hard to see it all, but here is the recap of my tour:

For those of you who are just discovering my blog, and who love South Maui, here is a quick review of the physical boundaries that define South Kihei – Lipoa, Piilani Highway, Kilohana, and the Pacific Ocean.

First Stop – 147 Moana Avenue, Listed at $920,000, 2162 sq. ft.
Brand new and ready for you! Moana Estates is a great neighborhood. Your new home comes with landscaping in place. Single level living, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, GE Profile appliances, and the builder’s limited 10-year Warranty. Move in and enjoy the next chapter of your life!

Next – Maui Parkshore Unit 116, 2653 S. Kihei Rd, 890 sq. ft. 2b/2b List price is $497,500 Maintenance Fee is $500 and this is a Vacation Rentable Complex
Want a Ground floor, corner unit, directly across the street from the Kam Beaches and the playground? This unit feels like a breath of fresh air and with the back door open, a sweet trade blows and cools everything. Very nicely upgraded. Maui Parkshore is a popular destination.

Then – Maui Kamaole Unit B115, 2777 S. Kihei Rd. 849 sq ft, 1b/2b, List Price is $569,900 Maintenance Fee is $568/month and this is a Vacation Rentable Complex.
Building B sits in a great spot – close to the pool and away from the road noise. Very nicely finished and furnished, this vacation rentable unit would be equally nice as a residence. You decide. The lanai is inviting and tiled with the same travertine as the living area and you enjoy a bit of a view. The bedroom has dark statement flooring and a private lanai.

On to – Maui Banyan UnitP208, 890 sq ft, 2b/2b, List Price is $523,000 Maintenance Fee $678.91/month Vacation Rentable

Pet friendly and vacation rentable – this might be what you need. Maui Banyan is located in such an ideal spot – across from the Kam Beaches and walking distance to food and fun. The listing agent shares that this unit has been “heavily booked and managed by Aston,” allowing a seamless transition for new owners. The unit has lock-off capability for the owners to leave personal items.

Maui Vista Unit 1-416, 2191 S. Kihei Rd, 2b/2b, 822 sq ft, List Price $439,000 Maintenance Fee $558/month and this complex is Vacation Rentable
Take the elevator up to the top floor and enjoy this view! One of the bedrooms is loft-style with sliding shutters when guests want privacy – or open they enjoy this same view. The location allows for an easy stroll to the ocean and all the fun.
This unit is now pending.

Want to call this home? 1470 Halama Street, 3b/3b, 2900 sq ft Oceanfront Home List price is $3,900,000
Halama Street is an established residential area with lush, mature landscaping, family compounds, and a few condos.
This remodeled home possesses a large living room, open kitchen, 3 bedroom, 3 baths and a grassy lawn that rolls down to the beach. Compare ocean front property prices and you will know that this is priced to sell.

Thanks for reading! If you would like more information on any of these properties, please let me know. It would be my pleasure to assist you!
