Wailea Ekahi Village Condos for Sale

Searching for South Maui condos? If you haven't explored the listings at Wailea Ekahi Village, you might want to take some time to see what they have to offer. What might stand out most about this beautiful South Maui condominium community is the variety of units that can be found there, reflected by the current price range that starts at about $700K and ends at about $1.7 million.

Many of the Wailea Ekahi Village condos boast sublime views of the lush grounds and the azure ocean beyond. The property features beautiful outdoor spaces with mature tropical landscaping for a distinctly Hawaiian ambiance. Nestled on 34 acres of beachfront land, there are 54 two-story buildings with 4 to 11 units in each. Just a short walk will bring you to one of South Maui's loveliest beaches: Keawakapu. You can swim in the ocean, relax on the powdery white sand, soak up the sun, explore the tide pools, or slip below the water's silky surface to snorkel at the reef that punctuates its southern end.

Located close by, you'll find a festive variety of restaurants featuring a broad range of cuisine types, both bargain and upscale shopping, dazzling art galleries, renowned golf courses and celebrated spas, all before a backdrop of breathtaking blue ocean and flaming sunsets with whales at play offshore in the winter and spring. Wailea Ekahi Village condos might be the perfect place for retirement or just a change of pace where you can take time to slow down, relax, and enjoy some of the best things that life can offer.

Condo listings may include 1 bed/1 bath and 2 bed/2 bath options, which are reflected in the prices, as are floor space and how extensive the updates and renovations have been. When you're finished relaxing indoors, there are plenty of things to do on the property. You'll find no less than four swimming pools, so you can explore them all, stick with a favorite or choose based on how busy or tranquil they are. Other amenities include shuffleboard, paddle tennis, barbecue areas and a beachfront pavilion with an ice maker, water, refrigerator, stove, microwave and barbecue grills.

Maalaea Condos at Hono Kai

Another conveniently located South Maui property featuring affordable condo listings.

Ma'alaea Condos at Hono Kai

Last week, we put a spotlight on affordable condos at Maui Banyan in Kihei. This week, we're following the same thread with condos in Ma'alaea at Hono Kai. If you're still getting familiar with the island, Ma'alaea is the most centrally located area in South Shore Maui, making it an ideal location if you want to have an easy time getting to West Maui, Central Maui, and the South Shore areas. Condos at Hono Kai are especially inexpensive, with current listings ranging in price from $285,000 to $389,900.

Among Hono Kai's best features are the stunning unobstructed views of the ocean and West Maui Mountains. Unlike Maui Banyan, Hono Kai is located directly on the beach, rather than across the street. This makes the whale watching all the more spectacular, and even more so because Ma'alaea Bay is the location where humpbacks tend to be thickest in number when they come to Hawaii in the winter and spring months.

Speaking of the ocean, Hono Kai is located on Maui's longest beach, where you can walk miles of powdery white sand, or just relax in the sun or go for a swim. It's a great place to live if you enjoy an active lifestyle, especially because Ma'alaea Harbor is just a couple of minutes away by car, and you can find all kinds of ocean activities there, like fishing, scuba diving, sightseeing cruises, snorkeling, and whale watching. If you're a marine life enthusiast, you're sure to enjoy the Maui Ocean Center, which is also in Ma'alaea.

The Hono Kai property features manicured lawns, a swimming pool and a barbeque area. Browse through Hono Kai listings to find out more about their renovations. One of the less common features at Hono Kai is that pets up to 20lbs are allowed, which should be music to any pet owner's ears. If you want to make some extra cash on your investment, long and short term rentals are both allowed here.

Although Hono Kai isn't as luxurious as some Maui condos, many units have been well-maintained, are tastefully furnished and have been recently updated and/or renovated. At the aforementioned prices, you might just find the perfect condo for your needs at this complex. If you need our assistance finding the right real estate for your needs, or you'd like to set up a viewing at Hono Kai or at another property, you'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. Mahalo!

Affordable Condos at Maui Banyan

Looking for affordable Maui real estate? You can still find reasonably priced condos in Kihei, if you know where to look, and you might be surprised by their quality. This week, we'd like to highlight the condos at Maui Banyan, a charming condominium community located across from Kamaole Beach II.

Maui Banyan condos include units ranging from 1-3 bedrooms with full kitchens, washer/dryer, and a private lanai. Many units feature beautiful views of the nearby ocean, making them ideal for watching sunsets or whales at play in the winter and spring months. Each listing is unique, and you can browse through them at our Maui Banyan Condo page. The current price range (September 2016) starts at about $400,000 and ends at $765,000. These prices will change over time as new listings pop up and are purchased.

This property was named after the banyan trees that dot the grounds, which provide shade and tranquility beneath their sprawling canopies. The lush tropical landscaping enhances that uniquely Hawaiian feel, along with the balmy ocean breezes that keep those leaves fluttering. Nestled into the greenery are two swimming pools and jet spas, tennis courts, a gas barbecue, picnic areas and a putting green.

With Kamaole Beach II across the street, you also have Kamaole I just a short walk north and Kamaole III to the south. All of these beaches feature free parking, restrooms, grassy lawns, showers, picnic tables and barbecue areas for your convenience. Also within walking distance, you'll find shopping, dining and ocean activities. Just a few minutes away by car, you'll find world-class golf courses, five-star restaurants and some of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

If you'd like to have a look at one of these condos, or any other Maui property that interests you, feel free to reach out to us. We'd be happy to set up a viewing. You'll find our contact information at the bottom of the page. In the meantime, happy hunting, and mahalo!
