KAANAPALI - Back in February, I introduced you to the very special, exclusive, gated community of The Masters at Kaanapali Hillside. It's tough to convey all the wonders of this beautiful low-rise complex nestled between four emerald fairways of the Kaanapali Royal (formerly North) Golf Course. This week, I'm back with more information about these unique, highly sought-after condominiums.
Kaanapali is a sweet spot on the island of Maui. In 1960, AMFAC (American Factors) chose Kaanapali to be the location of the world's first planned vacation resort. It selected the spot well. Kaanapali has an ideal tropical climate with an average of 278 warm sunny days a year, a temperature which ranges between 63-87 degrees Fahrenheit and 20 inches of rainfall. There are cool, tropical tradewind breezes and rainbow-creating, light tropical showers many afternoons. Together with three miles of world-famous golden sandy beach and colorful coral reefs, this makes it paradise for residents and visitors alike.
The Masters is a gated, well-planned, well-lit community. It is laid out in the shape of a whale's tail, optimizing the private, spacious feeling of the units. It is a wonderful place to live - I lived at The Masters when I first arrived in Maui. I love the panoramic views of the ocean and the islands of Molokai and Lanai - especially the ones where you can look over the championship golf course right down to the beach. I also loved the low-density living - with 200 units on nearly 38 acres, that's less than six units an acre! The landscaping all around is manicured and well-kept, and there is easy access to beaches, golf courses, resorts and shopping at the Kaanapali Resort. Lahaina and Kapalua are short drives away for more golf courses, shopping and activities.
The Masters at Kaanapali features incredible views.
Some residents at The Masters bought their condo while they looked for a house or a lot to build their dream home on but have never left. Over 25 percent of the owners at The Masters are full-time homeowners, and a further 35 percent are owner-occupants and don't rent. Units can be rented, but rentals must be a minimum of 30 days per the CCRs. Many snowbirds, owners and renters come and enjoy The Masters for several months each winter to escape the Canadian and U.S. snowstorms.
The Masters is a pet-friendly development; a dog or cat is allowed.
There are several wonderful properties at The Masters available. I have the pleasure of showcasing a few of them.
Masters #4203 and #4205 are two beautiful one-bedroom units with gorgeous views of the island of Molokai on the highest level at The Masters, close to the pool and tennis courts. Unit 4207, a two-bedroom/two-bathroom condo, is also available alongside for a multiple family purchase.
I also have units on the upper level of the fairways with beautiful views over the resorts to the island of Lanai. The Masters #3202 is a 1,728-square-foot, two-bedroom/two-bath, upstairs corner unit with unsurpassed panoramic views, and next door, 3107, is a rare, remodeled three-bedroom/three-bath corner unit, also on the ninth fairway.
Upstairs and downstairs units are available on the 13th and 14th holes of the Kaanapali Royal Golf Course. The Masters #1104 is an upstairs unit, #905 is downstairs unit and #1303 is a highly upgraded downstairs unit, all looking across the fairways down to the blue Pacific Ocean.
Masters #1603, nestled in the hillside, has a great view. This two-bedroom/two-bathroom condo is tastefully decorated with upgraded stainless steel appliances.
I have one-, two- and three-bedroom units available for showings.
