Wailea Real Estate is the integral part of the master-planned luxury Wailea Resort community, Hawaii’s #1 destination. The layout is an appealing mix of Wailea Condos and Wailea Homes, encompassing 1,500 gently sloped acres, surrounded by world-class hotel resort properties, golf courses, tennis courts, shopping malls and beautiful white-sand beaches. Nestled oceanfront between South Kihei in the north and Makena in the south, the governing Wailea Resort Association supports the individual communities and the resort hotels. You know when you are driving through the Wailea Resort. It’s all about location, location, location!
The majority of Wailea real estate is an array of 17 distinct Wailea condos. There are eight condo complexes in Wailea that are zoned to allow vacation rentals. Half of them are oceanfront condos, lined with picturesque white sandy beaches. Other complexes offer excellent ocean views or are bordering the famous golf courses. Some Wailea condos are offering personal garages. Wailea condo development started in the 1970s, hence, individual complexes and units are very different in layout and construction materials used.
Wailea homes are the quintessential representation of the prestigious Wailea real estate market. All homes in Wailea are organized in 10 individual neighborhoods, most of which are commonly gated. Maluhia At Wailea is the only community with oceanfront Wailea homes, located between Wailea Ekahi in the north and the Andaz Resort in the south. The county zoning does not allow for any vacation rentals. Limited inventory makes properties without views just as popular as ocean view Wailea homes.
"Buy land, they don’t make any more of it!" Vacant land opportunities within the Wailea Resort are vanishing quickly. Some of the gated neighborhoods still have a few vacant parcels, but sooner or later, we will probably have to delete this search option. The remaining larger parcels of land will most likely be developed as condominium or residential projects.
