Many prospective Maui home owners deliberate long and hard about which part of the island they want to live in. It's a decision that will change your life, no matter where you go, and there are qualities to certain areas that help ensure that the change turns out to be wonderful. So why choose South Maui real estate over other parts of the island? Ask yourself if the following appeals to you.
Beaches, beaches and more beaches. Spending a tranquil morning in the warm sun on a powdery white sand beach is hard to beat. But what makes South Maui beaches special? Predominant trade winds blowing in from the north ensure that North Shore Maui beaches are the place for wind and waves, making it ideal for those who enjoy surfing or windsurfing, but not so ideal for a peaceful sunbathing and swimming experience. West Maui beaches are somewhat sheltered from the trade winds as well, but the beaches there tend to be smaller and are fewer in number, so they get crowded fast. Some South Maui beaches are popular, it's true, but you can always visit one that gets less foot traffic. On those peaceful, clear mornings, you'll get to enjoy the balmy air, an ocean surface like blue glass, and breathtaking views of the Pacific, Kaho'olawe, and Molokini in the distance.
Ocean views. Now keep all that beauty in mind and apply it to what you see every day when you wake up in the morning. There are some properties here with stunning views of the ocean, so if you want to begin your days with peace, tranquility and beauty, think about an ocean view South Maui property. You can get beautiful ocean view real estate in West Maui too, but there are more real estate options in South Maui, and at lower average prices.
Convenient distance from downtown Kahului. Kihei is about twenty minutes from Kahului. On the other hand, Lahaina is double that, and sometimes more, because traffic is often problematic on that particular drive. This makes a big difference if you end up working in Kahului, or make shopping trips there regularly. Life is short. How much of it do you want to spend on the road?
Numerous shops and dining options. Not only do you have convenient access to the shops and restaurants of Kahului, but you can also enjoy a broad range of those right here in South Maui. Some of the best restaurants on the island can be found here, and there seems to be no end to the creative blend of flavors you'll find here. There's also a bit of night life for those who like to go out on the town in the evenings. Shopping includes everything from flea market cheap to designer brand upscale.
A broad range of prices, sizes and types of real estate. There are numerous condos and homes to choose from in Kihei. These are the more affordable in South Maui, with prices climbing for luxury homes and condos in Wailea and Makena. South Maui really shines when it comes to the number of options you have to choose from.
