When looking at Kahului homes for sale, one thing you should understand is that this is not one of the tourist centers of Maui. This is especially surprising because Kahului is the largest town on the Island. The main airport is here, along with the only available harbor for cruise ships, yet the tourists end up elsewhere once they touch land. The tourists all arrive here, most just don’t stick around once they do.
Those conditions have allowed the community to hang onto much of the local life they’ve always enjoyed here. Buying a home in Kahului doesn’t mean you’re missing any of the beauty of Maui. The tourists’ loss can be your gain.
There’s Kahana Beach Park, a local secret, with great swimming and sunbathing always awaiting you. Kahului is also very near the intense greenery of Iao Valley State Park. It’s a place set aside for hiking and enjoying the wonders only Nature herself could create. It’s also home to the famous Iao Needle mountain, which you’ll never tire of gazing upon.
Along with these natural wonders, the town is acknowledged as the retail and business center of Maui. That means jobs and opportunities in easy reach. Many residents also commute to tourism jobs outside the town, so you have choices here that other parts of Maui don’t always have for employment. Kahului is also where you’ll find Maui’s widest variety of shopping. There are several malls and big box stores, including the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center, which is the biggest shopping center on the Island.
If you have children, there are public schools to serve them, including Pomaika’i Elementary, Lihikai Elementary & Kahului Elementary Schools. For the older kids there’s Maui Waena Intermediate School and Maui High School.
Maui is growing, but there still aren’t the number of condo developments you’d find on Oahu or even the Big Island. If that is your housing preference, though, Kahului is one of the place you’ll find them here. Houses are still more prevalent so keep that in mind during your home search in Kahului. Why not see what’s out there on the market now?
