Maui’s Best Local Businesses & Places to Visit

I was just reading the 2014 HAWAII magazine, the readers’ choice issue, and I wanted to share some of Maui’s top picks from the magazine. This is an informative magazine that you can pick up at your local newsstand as it covers a lot of topics, and of course, the best of the best

Since I live on Maui, I’m a bit partial and decided to see how we fared with the readers’ choices. I was very impressed to see that we were #1 in many categories. Below, I listed only the Maui-specific first place winners. There were several winners that included Maui (chain stores), but were also located on other islands, that I did not list.

For example, Foodland (a grocery store) won for best poke. Who would think that you should go to a grocery store for poke? But I go often myself, and agree, it is very good – maybe not as good as when we go out and catch fresh yellowfin tuna and make it ourselves, but good.

Maybe you are wondering, “what is poke?” Well, poke is usually served as an appetizer (pupu), but I often eat it as a main dish; it is normally made with yelowfin tuna, but other seafood is also used. It is marinated (not cooked) in

#Kanoelani Condo Near The Beach In #Kihei

Here is a little sleeper condo complex near the beach in the heart of Kihei. Kanoelani #A is a two bedroom ground floor unit in a 6 unit complex that allows pets. You will not see units come up for sale in this complex very often; it is in the center of Kihei very close to the beach, but is hidden on a quiet street

just off the main drag, South Kihei Road.

Kanoelani condo near the beach (MLS# 360043)

With the low inventory of 2 bedroom condos in Kihei, there is not really anything like this one on the market; most are in higher density complexes that feel like you are living in an apartment complex. This complex also has a type of buffer on one side of the property with some green space that gives it an extra feel of privacy.

The entry to the complex is very tropical


The nearest beach is Cove Beach Park and a short distance away are the very popular Kamaole Beaches of Kihei. You are very close to shops and food. This complex even has a pool, which is not very common in residential complexes, a BBQ, and a shared, fenced backyard. The low maintenance property helps to keep maintenance fees down. You also are allowed pets (per house rules), which is another rare amenity in Maui condo complexes.

#Maui #BanyanVacationCondos See Increasing Prices & Sales in 2014

With the Fall season that just flew by, this winter is proving to be a very busy one. Not only for the tourists here, but also for Buyers and Sellers of vacation rentals. The whales are here in full force, and what better place to watch the whales than from one of the 3 Kamaole Beaches, or any place in South Maui for that matter?

The Maui Banyan complex continues to be on my favorites list. Whether you are a renter or an owner, so many people know about the Maui Banyan, and you should see repeat guests year after year. The location is great, within walking distance to just about all you need on vacation; restaurants, shopping, and right across the beach from Kamaole Beach 2.

Market Activity

At the time of this posting there are:

  • 11 active listings
  • 2 more are pending
  • 12 solds YTD, 6 of those sales were cash (there were only 9 sales the previous 12 months)

Of the more recent sales. The one-bedroom units sold ranged from $325,000 to $420,000. The most recent two-bedroom, #T-107, just sold for $544,000, 95% of list price and only 59 days on the market. This unit is located towards the back half of the complex with a garden view.

Maui Banyan Solds YTD

You will find a variety of units, which causes the prices to vary quite a bit, such as condition of the units, some are original and others have been extensively remodeled. Then the location within the buildings, that will range from units along the South Kihei Road (closer to the beach) and others towards the back of the building, which some prefer, as it is quieter. Also, you will find a variety of views, from garden to ocean views.


  • Unit #P 305 (MLS# 358243) – one bed/two bath, listed for $380,000
  • Unit #G 509 (MLS# 355929) - two bed/two bath, listed for $640,000

Why So Desirable?

This shows the market improving, and especially for the more desirable properties, such as this one. Why so desirable? Not just location, but also it is one of the newer complexes (that allows vacation rentals) in Kihei built in 1990-1991.

A great and popular feature is that the one-bedroom units have two bathrooms. You will find in most complexes there is only one bathroom in a one-bedroom unit. Another feature is the style of the floor plan. Many complexes are designed as long and narrow, but the Maui Banyan is a wider floor plan, giving it the feeling of spaciousness.

View from Unit #G 502, a 2 bed/2 bath listed at $750,000

With the super location across from Kamaole Beach 2, the prices are rising at this complex, and the number of YTD sales are more than the prior year. The majority of sales have closed near to the list price.

None of these sales were bank owned or a short sale, so the time for waiting for those distress sales seem to not be of such a value any longer. When a distress sale comes on the market, they are listed competitively with the non distress sale units.

Please let me know if I can be of help in finding your piece of paradise. Whether at the Maui Banyan, or any other properties here on Maui. Also, if you are an owner looking to list your property, I can assist you with that as well.

Hoku Lani and the Konea. They both have a very different feel, and that is one of the reasons this is such a great complex.

With pools, beautiful, tropical grounds, and Duke’s restaurant, you will see why so many are returning to the Honua Kai year after year. If you are interested in purchasing a unit, you can choose from a studio, one, two, or three bedroom unit, putting them into a vacation rental program, or for your own personal use when you visit Maui (or a combination of both).

Below is a list of active Honua Kai units available for sale:
