Why the Wailuku Hillside is Heavenly

First, let’s focus on the area itself. Situated at the base of the West Maui Mountains, Wailuku is filled with history and old-time charm as well as all the big city convenience you might need. Only 10 minutes from the airport, Wailuku is a commercial center and the home of Maui’s government. A higher elevation means cooler temperatures which is a nice bonus and makes Wailuku a very comfortable place to live.

Historical Influence of Old Hawaii on Wailuku

There were two phases of building in Wailuku Heights; the northern neighborhood, known as Old Wailuku Heights, was the first area to be developed. Here lots range from 10,000 to 20,000 square feet and often have even larger lots. With 1950’s style Kama’aina architecture, these vintage-style homes are well-preserved and offer a touch of history with class.

In the newer section, you’ll find construction from the 1980s. Lots for homes in the newer Wailuku Heights range between 8,000 and 15,000 square feet. A nice touch of a more modern phase is having the utilities all underground. There are also some homes built in the 1990’s and a few more recent additions as well as vacant lots waiting to find their perfect owner!
