Hau’oli Makahiki Hou means Happy New Year in Hawaiian

By Staff | Jan 4, 2018

From left, Jim Harris, Meredith Quenon and Mischelle Lawrence enjoy the holidays.

Moving into 2018, we are thankful to have spent the holidays with lots of special ‘Ohana (Family). In fact, our holidays extend one week longer, as we celebrate our Mother Meredith Quenon’s birthday on Jan. 8. This year she will be 99, and we all are extremely blessed. Haouli la Hanau – Happy Birthday!

Meredith loves to go to the beach with us in our golf cart. She loves that we live in The Vintage at Kaanapali because of the location in Kaanapali proper, where you are just a short walk or golf cart ride away to Kaanapali Resort, Whalers Village and world-famous Kaanapali Beach. The Vintage at Kaanapali is a 17-acre residential property surrounded by the Kaanapali Golf Course with freestanding condominium homes that include two-car garages. The amenities are great with walking trails, a recreation area that includes a pool, jacuzzi, barbecues, a kitchen area and workout room. Vintage #151 just took a price reduction, and the seller is anxious to see an offer. Listed at $1,035,000, this is a two-story, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home. The views from the upstairs living and master bedroom suite are beautiful toward the island of Lanai. The property is being sold unfurnished and ready for all the right touches to make it a home.

Also available in Kaanapali is 180 Kalaihi. This family estate home located in Kaanapali Golf Estates is on the Kaanapali Golf Course and has four bedrooms, which include two Master Suites (one upstairs and one downstairs). The layout of the home allows for family members to have many options, from playing games in the den area, lounging by the pool, making pupus in the open kitchen and enjoying them in the dining area. Or maybe you like to tinker – there is plenty of room for that in the three-car garage area. This property is priced at $3,035,000, based on past sales in the neighborhood. It is being sold completely furnished – all you need to do is arrive.

An estate property or home is not for everyone – if you are just interested in getting your foot in the door with an exceptional investment property, Kaanapali Shores does not get better! Unit #634 is being offered for sale at $374,500, and currently it’s the only Fee Simple studio available. This studio property has an ocean view and is currently with the front desk Aqua/Aston, who does an outstanding job generating rental income. You only have to worry about making your next reservation to visit at this upscale resort property with amenities that exceed all others, including an oceanfront restaurant, underground parking, concierge service, gym, convenience store and much, much more. This property can be viewed between check-in and checkouts. Rental income history is available upon request.

Also at Honua Kai Resort and Spa, the only studio apartment for sale is stunning and very popular in the prestigious Honua Kai condominium complex. This is the largest studio floor plan available on the property at 595 square feet and sleeps four. It features a fully outfitted Bosch kitchen with full-size washer/dryer and additional closet space for owners’ storage. This property is in highly upgraded condition. Honua Kai is West Maui’s newest whole ownership and has amenities, PLUS Duke’s oceanfront restaurant is also located at Honua Kai. This property is proudly offered at $795,000.

Maui Eldorado J-205 is the BEST PRICE AND VERY BEST LOCATION! Located right on the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course, this large, one-bedroom, one-bath condominium apartment is the size of most two-bedroom condominiums on Maui. It’s an easy walk to Whalers Village for shopping and dining, Maui’s BEST beach and so many other amenities available when living in a world-class resort. Surrounded by palm trees and overlooking the golf course fairway, you are close to everything. Three separate swimming pools are spread out on the lovely grounds. There is a washer and dryer in the unit. Homeowners’ fees include water, electric, trash, basic Wi-Fi and basic cable TV, ground maintenance, building insurance, and exclusive use of the beachfront pavilion. Seller had replaced the tile on the lanai, replaced sofa bed and chair in the living room, replaced window coverings on all the front sliding glass doors, and removed the popcorn ceiling in 2014. It is NOW completely repainted, all new interior doors and all new carpeting just completed in December 2017. Be sure to watch the Video Tour at www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxjOKs2t9LI&feature=youtube.
