One of Maui's best qualities is its versatility. You can live humbly, or you can engage in a luxury lifestyle if you have the means. Yes, this applies to Maui real estate, of course, but it also applies to how you spend your time. Anyone can enjoy beach days, hiking, and visiting waterfalls, while others can indulge in ocean cruises, spa days, and fine dining regularly.
