Surrounded by green park-like space with gated entries, this idyllic tight-knit community of Wailea Kai offers its residents a safe, private neighborhood.  The Wailea Kai neighborhood in Wailea is a census-designated area in Maui County, Hawaii that was established in 1971 by a partnership of Alexander and Baldwin and Northwestern Mutual. Wailea was originally a fishing settlement and its name translates to “water of lea” the goddess of canoe-builders.

Wailea Kai is The Perfect Place To Be on Maui

Wailea Kai is one of the original neighborhoods in South Maui. It has a mature landscape with amazing homes. Here, you can know your neighbors simply by walking around the neighborhood while enjoying the perennial warm climate and outdoor lifestyle. Many of the homes for sale in this gated community have been remodeled and updated with more contemporary finishes. 

Among the neighborhoods in Wailea, Wailea Kai is the most affordable, and is also the closest to the beach! Because it is on flatter ground, very few homes have any ocean views, but when the ocean is that close, you tend to just spend more time at the beach. 

Wailea Has A Lot of Great Things To Do

World-class restaurants like Sorento’s and 5 Palms are just within walking distance from the gated community. Explore shopping and world-class golf courses not far from here. Enjoy and spend an agreeable moment at Keawakapu Beach. The best things to do in Wailea are just steps away from the Wailea Kai neighborhood.

As mentioned above, this beach is one of the most attractive on Maui. Keawakapu Beach is known for its nice long sandy beach good for swimming kayaking, stand-up paddling, sandcastle making, snorkeling, and lounging.

Luxury and Value In One Place at Wailea Kai

The Wailea Kai community is considered one of the strongest values for luxury homes in Maui. This is another reason why many people love the neighborhood. If you are looking for a luxury home in a breathtaking environment at a price not too far above the median home price on Maui, Wailea Kai might fit your Maui real estate objectives. In fact, Wailea Kai homes for sale tend to have the lowest price point within the Wailea residential community.

The price tag for Wailea Kai stands in stark contrast with houses along the Keawakapu beach. While properties on the beach cost a lot more (between $15,000,000 and $40,000,000), you can live in a sophisticated home not far from the beach for about $2,400,000 and up.
