Browse All East Maui Communities
Maui in and of itself has so much to offer. From the incredible beaches of the south to the shops and resorts of the west side, the island is considered to be relatively low-key, but still attracts many tourists and hopeful residents. East Maui is known to be the more rural side, with properties surrounded by lush greenery and gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape.
Unlike other parts of Maui, the east is both less developed and less populated, and encompasses the communities of Kaupo, Nahiku, Kipahulu, Keanea, and Hana—the last being the largest, located on the coast. Real estate in East Maui is entirely composed of single-family homes and vacant lots for sale. For those searching for a rural escape, this is the perfect place to settle down.
Single-family homes in East Maui take on features of the island’s traditional architectural elements. With both one story and two story homes on the market, homes do also range in square footage. However, homes that are smaller in size still do often have sizable lots, with generous acreage that can be used for farming in some cases. As well, many East Maui properties have additional buildings (cottages) that add more bedrooms and living/storage space, making these listings quite attractive.
Although East Maui typically has fewer homes for sale on the market (in comparison to Central Maui or West Maui), residents can truly live a private, tranquil lifestyle. These homes are usually located on larger lots with lush landscaping, with the exception of the centrally-located properties of the town centers. Ideal for families, retirees, and even farmers, East Maui real estate has a lot to offer.
In regards to amenities, whilst many of the homes for sale may require some upgrades or renovation, the lots themselves are very attractive. The views, for example, are one of the biggest draws for East Maui real estate. As a result, homes are located near some of the area’s most beautiful attractions, such as the rainforest, waterfalls, or beaches.
East Maui: Highlights & Amenities
East Maui, as mentioned, is known to be a nature-lover’s paradise, and it attracts tourists and visitors from the other side of the island. Residents love the area for its peace and undeveloped landscape—but also for its plethora of attractions. East Maui is connected to Central Maui via the Hana Highway (locally referred to as the Road to Hana), which begins in Kahului and south of Hana. This is a little bit of a challenging journey, as drivers must cross over fifty bridges, but it's one of the most well-known attractions in the area, for the sights along the way are unparalleled.
As the mountain peaks and nature reserves take up much of the center of East Maui, the communities in this area are all located along the coast. While traveling along the Road to Hana, many take the opportunity to visit the many sights along the way. This includes East Maui’s botanical gardens (Kahanu Garden, Garden of Eden Arboretum), parks (Kaumahina State Wayside Park, Wailua Valley State Wayside Park, Ko’Olau Forest Reserve, Koki Beach Park, Kipahulu Forest Reserve/Haleakalā National Park, Waianapanapa State Park), and other attractions (ziplining, hiking, swimming, and more).
Of course, the waterfalls and beaches in East Maui are probably some of the most famous attractions. Visit the red sand beach at Kaihalulu or the black sand beach at Honokalani, and enjoy the daylong journey. In regards to waterfalls, Wailua Falls is one of the most famous in the area, as well as Hanawi Falls, Upper Waikani Falls, and Makapipi Falls.
Wa’inapanapa Park offers camping and Haleakala National Park at Kipahulu has great hiking. Surfing and fishing are local favorites. The Hana Lava Tube (an incredible cave adventure) and the Pools of ʻOheʻo are other popular attractions in East Maui. And, if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture, there are plenty of unique shops and stands, plus delicious restaurants across the region.
