Real estate statistics statewide and nationwide are improving. Some places have seen double-digit appreciation in home sales, not only in pricing but in number of properties sold. Inventory is going down in many choice areas around the country. Interest rates are still at an all-time low, and this has certainly been a major factor in stimulating the real estate market to a now rapid recovery.

That is why properties like 312 A’alii Way located in the Kaanapali Golf Estates will not last long. If you are thinking of building your dream home in Kaanapali, you must consider 312 A’alii Way. This is the lowest-priced quarter-acre lot currently listed in Kaanapali Golf Estates. This property has the lowest association fees of all Golf Estates neighborhoods! A quiet cul-de sac location, this property is ready to build your custom dream home and will have GREAT views.

Living in Kaanapali is a lifestyle that comes with golf cart access to the resort and some of the most incredible beaches in the world, as stated again this year by Travel and Leisure as well as Conde Nast magazines. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should not be overlooked. This property is easy to view on the spur of the moment; simply call for gate access. 312 A’alii is proudly offered at $409,000.

If building is not for you, keep it simple with an extraordinary freestanding condominium home at The Vintage at Kaanapali. 147 Kualapa Place is like buying new! This property has been upgraded with the intent to make the home as hypoallergenic as possible, using “green” materials, and to increase energy efficiency. Located in a low-density gated neighborhood, 147 Kualapa Place is one of 73 freestanding residential condominium homes on over 17 acres surrounded by the Kaanapali Golf Course. The numerous amenities include heated pool, jacuzzi, state-of-the-art gym, entertainment area with full kitchen and barbecues, plus private walking trails make this a one-of-a-kind condominium property. This particular home is a very unique floor plan within the development with four bedrooms and three baths. On the ground floor, there are ocean views and a very private, large lanai/patio area. Exterior electric remote sun shades create the feel of a additional outdoor dining room and extra living area.

Also located on the ground level is one of two master suites, plus another guest bath and bedroom that can also be used as a very comfortable office or media space. The kitchen has Craftsman cherry kitchen cabinets with under cabinet lighting, where all drawers and cabinet shelves roll out. The new onyx back splash adds to the new granite single-slab counters. New refrigerator, microwave, stove and very quiet dishwasher are all top-of-the-line, energy-efficient appliances. There are three new water-saver ADA height toilets, as well as six new Casablanca “Stealth” fans with multiple settings and dimming lights, all remotely controlled.

There are all new window coverings (Hunter Douglas), along with dining and living room remote-controlled blinds and the whole house fan that cools both levels and attic, adding to the energy efficiency of this one-of-a-kind home.

Hypoallergenic new Cork Flooring (floating, no glue) along with “Smart Strand” carpet on the steps give the feel of floating on air as you enjoy the newness that surrounds you. New floor and door moldings, granite thresholds, upstairs and downstairs bedroom sliding glass doors, along with new light switches indicate nothing was overlooked. Original developer upgrades include extended patio/lanai in front of the downstairs master bedroom with a added sliding glass door to access this area. The views from the upstairs are outstanding – the upgraded balcony lanai adds to the year-round sunsets over the azure blue Pacific with the back drop of the neighbor islands of Molokai and Lanai. With whale season in full swing, you don’t even have to leave your home to enjoy their playful activity of tail slapping, breaching and blowing their breath sky high.

The Kaanapali lifestyle is very accessible from the Vintage at Kaanapali – jump in your golf cart or take a short walk, and you have arrived to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world; shopping, world-renowned golf, restaurants along with extensive resorts are at your fingertips if you are a resident at The Vintage. If you have thought of making Kaanapali your home, this is truly a property not to overlook and is available to view to qualified purchasers. It’s priced at $1,189,000 for a quick sale.
