The benefits of living in South Maui are too numerous to mention, but every once in a while we get an extra special perk come up, and we wanted to share one of those with you. The Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has recently announced that they will be launching a Kamaʻāina Season for Maui residents, where they will reduce their rates from November 28th to December 19th, 2015.
If you think living in paradise is luxurious enough, just imagine getting more affordable rates at one of Maui's finest resorts because you live here. And those resorts are right around the corner if you own Wailea real estate. Kamaʻāina rates are offered by many businesses on Maui, simply because the community takes care of its own. Between the aforementioned dates, the resort will provide the lowest kamaʻāina rates of the year, starting at $299 with no resort fee. On top of that, guests will also have access to a complimentary activity schedule, along with other offers.
“It gives us great pleasure to open our doors to our extended ʻohana during the pre-holiday rush, so they can remember exactly whythey live here,” said General Manager Jean Claude Wietzel in a company announcement. He said it well, and there are plenty of other enjoyable things to do on Maui. Visitors come from all over the world to try ziplining, surfing, horseback riding, whale watching and other exciting experiences here. We Maui residents get busy like everyone else, but it's nice to keep in mind how much fun can be had whenever we want to enjoy it.
Interested in taking advantage of these special rates? Here is the list of complimentary activities that they are offering:
Hopefully, you'll get to take advantage of this special offer and have a great time. Just keep in mind that you need a valid Hawaii ID to get the kamaʻāina rate. The Four Seasons isn't advertising this deal with any online information. At this point, it's reserved for those who are "in the know." If you need more details about it, call 808-874-8000.

Some recent good news that's come down the pipeline is that Hawaii electric bills are at their lowest in five years this month. That includes customers of Hawaiian Electric Co., Maui Electric Co. and Hawaii Electric Light Co. The primary reason is dropping fossil fuel prices, but regardless of the source, it's a happy circumstance for residents throughout the islands.
According to Darren Pai, a spokesman for Hawaiian Electric, the utility considers it critical to continue pursuing 100% renewable energy from diverse sources to keep energy bills low. That way, fossil fuel prices won't impact the cost of our energy in the first place. At this point, Hawaiian Electric Co. gets 22 percent of its energy from renewable sources, and progress is being made quickly, which is good news for those looking forward to buying Maui real estate.
According to the report, Hawaiian Electric and Maui Electric customers are getting the lowest monthly bills in over five years. Hawaii Electric Light customers are getting their lowest monthly bills in over six years. There was also an interesting breakdown to the typical cost of an electric bill by island.
The typical residential bill on Oahu was $132.32 per month, the lowest since June of 2010. Also at their lowest cost since that year were the islands of Maui County. The typical residential bill on Maui was $141.57 per month, while Molokai's was $132.73 per month, and Lanai's was $138.86 per month. Meanwhile, the Big Island's bills were highest at $163.20, which haven't been that low since July of 2009.
It was interesting to see that an electric bill on Maui was only about $9 higher than Oahu, but that the Big Island's bill was around $21 more than on Maui, and about $30 more than on Oahu. Considering the high quality of life that you can expect if you choose to live and possibly buy real estate on Maui, the marginal increase is probably worth it. That's true especially if you like a lower population density and more space overall. On that note, if you need assistance with your Maui real estate search, we would be happy to help you through every step of the process.
