In a sense, you could say there aren't any homes for sale in Wailea-Makena anymore. That's because Wailea-Makena officially doesn't exist today. As of the 2010 census the two were divided into the separate entities of Wailea & Makena. We still talk about them both as whole, though, because they're so close together and still linked in local minds. Few refer to them separately. So looking at homes in Wailea-Makena is the same as it was before 2010, so no need to do dual searches. In real estate, they remain a couple.
That census found 5,938 people within Wailea, but only 99 in Makena proper. You can easily guess where most of the real estate is found.
If anything is known about Wailea-Makena, it's the fact that it's an extremely desirable place to live on Maui. Like many other places in Hawaii, it's a desirable place to visit, too. Luxury resorts, including the Grand Wailea & the Four Seasons attract an upscale clientele that revels in the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you. Best of all? This beauty can be part of your daily life.
That exclusivity is often reflected in the homes for sale in Wailea-Makena. The good news is that there are a lot of condos and townhouses, along with houses, here. The average prices will be higher, but you can understand that from the lush greenery and incredible scenery that makes this part of Maui so ideal.
One of the most famous beaches on Maui lies nearby, Makena Beach, known more familiarly as Big Beach. It's almost 2/3 of a mile long and 100 yards in width, making it a magnet for sunbathers and ocean lovers alike. Despite it's popularity it isn't as crowded as the beaches in the other tourist areas. That only increases its attractiveness to visitors and locals alike.
If you're wondering about the dining and shopping options, you'll find both in the Shops at Wailea, which features some of the best restaurants in the area. If you're a fan of fine dining, it would be hard to beat eating at some of the places inside.
The community is also famous for its yearly Maui Film Festival as well as Whale Week every February. The local calendar has a lot to offer. It's not as filled as Lahaina's, but that doesn't worry residents who enjoy having a little more quiet to their days. It's all about enjoying what Nature put here to the fullest each and every day.
