People always ask me, specially if they previously stayed on both sides of the island: Why do you prefer Wailea Homes over properties in West Maui? It’s an interesting question and sure deserves a mention.
Last week, I had some very nice folks visiting from Canada. We had a great time and they saw just about a dozen Wailea Homes in the $2M to $3.5M price range. Doing this all in one day is quiet a setup but they had prepared similar showings for West Maui two days later.
Yes, I live in South Maui and it is the only place I do business. South Maui Homes are your better choice While I believe that any answer to the question can never objective, I do want to say that there are a few facts that can’t be missed.
Comparing annual statistics, we have less rain in South Maui and our weather pattern seems generally more friendly with less wind. From hidden coves to mile-long stretches of light sand, there are a number of very different beaches to choose from. Enough to keep you busy exploring for an extended vacation.
The Wailea Beach walkway virtually meandering from Wailea Ekahi all the way down to the Polo Beach Club, makes a very different impression then the flat stretched walkway on Kaanapali Beach in front of the tall Miami-style hotel skyline. Wailea Homes are part of the master-planed Wailea Resort community, nothing that West Maui can offer.
The road ends in South Maui and it appears much more quiet and secluded down here. For action and entertainment, we visit West Maui. We just have to make sure that the one single road stays open to get us back home when we are done. West Maui folks will call this a “better community life” and that makes sense: You think twice and it’s often a hassle to use the one single road for commuting or traveling on a more regular basis.
Welcome to South Maui then! You should buy one of the Wailea Homes.
It shall be noted that I enjoy Maui’s diversity! No matter where you end up, Maui is the Best, truly No Ka Oi. Nevertheless, this is my blog and it is my opinion. I will publish your quality comments and thought out opinions if you leave them below. Mahalo from VWonMaui.
