Most well-known for its miles upon miles of gorgeous beaches, South Maui is a popular tourist attraction for its scenic beauty, famous landmarks, and multitude of outdoor recreation. Many also choose to live year-round or vacation during the summer months. However, because of the area’s desirability, real estate is highly sought-after.
South Maui encapsulates the census-designated places of Kihei, Wailea, and Makena, as well as the small communities around the bay. Its market consists of beautiful single-family homes, as well as resort-style condos in mid- and high-rise complexes—many of which have unparalleled ocean views.
Architecturally, the homes for sale in South Maui can range quite significantly. Condos typically mix traditional and modern elements together, but there is more leeway for single-family homes. Often, properties will be built in a more traditional style, and can be single story or multiple stories (often two) in height. Taking the flat roofs and ample lanai space, some custom homes for sale in South Maui have made more modern adjustments to their designs, especially when it comes to interiors. Solar panels, as a quick note, are popular features of homes in South Maui.
In regards to price point, this varies quite a bit, depending on a number of factors: location, square footage, construction date, upgrades, and more. Those searching for a summer vacation home might consider one of the many condo units, which provide the same South Maui experience at a lower price point. One bedroom, one bathroom units at under 1,000 square feet are typically more affordable, but there are multiple bedroom and bathroom units available on the market as well. Many of the condo subdivisions in South Maui are built close to the waterfront, with units that have ocean or mountain views.
Single-family homes have often been expertly maintained and often upgraded recently—which is ideal both for those who plan to live year-round, or for those who are purchasing with rental opportunities in mind. South Maui homes are luxurious, and do usually have additional buildings (cottages) on the property. Homes found in desirable neighborhoods, such as Maui Meadows, don’t last too long on the real estate market, and properties have a lot of investment potential. Larger, private lots do tend to come with a heftier price point, but no matter where you are located, you’re never far from the beach.

South Maui: Highlights & Amenities
South Maui provides a luxurious, resort-like lifestyle to its residents. Although amenities vary from property to property, there’s so much to see and do in this beautiful part of the island. In some cases, such as Ma'alaea Surf Resort, properties are located right by the water—and on resorts themselves.
Condos in South Maui typically includes some fantastic amenities, which is why these are a popular choice for buyers. Tennis courts, resident pools, outdoor entertaining areas, and water access are just a few of the common amenities found with South Maui condos.

Wailea Beach is a great swimming spot, and there is plenty of wildlife around Palauea Beach. Makena Beach, in the south end, is one of the premier surfing destinations in South Maui—although this is recommended for experienced surfers due to its strong waves.
