Today I just selected a few of the great properties on caravan to go to. I currently don’t have any buyers in the $1.5 million range so I skipped all except the one where they were serving Komodo donuts! (I hear they are closing soon so go visit them TODAY!).
Certainly a BEST BUY is located at the Palms at Wailea 1, unit 405 (MLS 329109). It is a spacious (over 1000 square feet!) ground floor unit with 1 bedroom and 2 baths for just $649,000. It is a short sale, so it may be a complex purchase but so far there are no offers. It is currently in the Outrigger vacation rental program and I’ve requested rental history. It only has a peak of ocean view but is convenient to pools. It is a nice unit and great deal!
I’m not sure the agent had to bribe us with great donuts (including to-die-for cream puffs) but the home I’d most like to live in was in Kanani Wailea at 80 Po’alilani Place. (MLS 331189) It is a new development so the street doesn’t show on the map but it is off Kapilli Street. From the street, it appeared to be a small home. I don’t care for the narrow streets and limited parking in this gated community but I was blown away by the exceptional layout and beauty of this home.
It has several bedroom suites that all enter into a private garden courtyard. Although just 2,242 square feet on a small lot, it is very spacious and currently offers great ocean views. Some ocean view might be preserved even if there is further building, but there is no guarantee. 4 beds/4 baths, stunning home for just $1,938,000. As I look at comparable sales though, this unit is overpriced by several hundred thousand dollars.
Maui Meadows is a community on the mauka side of Pi’ilani highway right where Kihei meets Wailea. Minimum lot size is 1/2 an acre and many lots have wonderful ocean views so it is a popular place to live. You get a lot of variety in Maui Meadows, ranging from old to new, and pristine to barely liveable. (MLS 331062) The home I saw today was a bit dated had and an awkward layout but spacious room and beautiful ocean views. Located at 620 Kumulani Drive, it has very little curb appeal. You enter into what looks like a converted garage/family living area. From there is a doorway to the kitchen, and a side door to a very large spacious bathroom. The kitchen is spacious but the green/blue painted cupboards are “interesting”. The kitchen opens to a great room which in turn opens into the pool area. The pool is smallish and L-shaped, but has nice ocean views. All the rooms are spacious. The master suite has an old dated bathroom. If it were up to me, I’d upgrade the other large bedroom to integrate with the nice bathroom and make that the master suite. One area of the house was configured so that it could be used as an Ohana with small kitchen and separate entrance. Priced at $1,485,000. Virtual Tour
