KAANAPALI - Located at the top of Kekaa Drive in between the Fairway Shops and the world-famous Kaanapali Golf Course is the Maui Eldorado property comprised of studios, one-bedroom/one-bathroom, one-bedroom/two-bathroom and two-bedroom/two-bathroom units.
All have a full kitchen and a washer and dryer in the unit. You can opt to BBQ right on your own lanai - no more waiting in line at the barbecues by the pool. What makes the Maui Eldorado so appealing to the vacationer is the large square footages, the three pools (two of which are heated), the lovely gardens and walking paths, and, of course, the private beach cabana on North Kaanapali for owners and guests only. It's also one of the few properties that actually has an underground parking area. Also, the location of the property makes it within walking distance to Whalers Village for shopping and dining.
The front desk at the Maui Eldorado is run by the Outrigger, which provides great service to the many returning guests. Whalers Realty has a great selection of units available for purchase, including the "Penthouse location J-202 listed at $1,075,000 LH." This is a one-of-a-kind unit - a two-bedroom-sized, 1,440-square-foot unit that has been converted to a one-bedroom two-bathroom. It features magnificent views as you enter the unit - the ocean, the beach and the golf course blend seamlessly into a really inspiring backdrop. The unit itself is in immaculate condition, shows extremely well and includes furnishings (some artwork excluded). J-202 is in a private rental program, so arrangements need to be made to see the interior. A virtual tour can be accessed at www.visualtour.com/show.asp?t=2885783&prt=10003.
Maui Eldorado J-202 features a comfortable living room.
We also have two one-bedroom units available. Still 960 square feet, one is B-202 listed at $310,000 LH (does not include 10 percent fee simple). Featuring an ocean view, the unit has been remodeled and shows extremely well. It is in the front desk program and rated an "A." This is a terrific value for the condition and location. Check it out via www.visualtour.com/show.asp?t=2881577&prt=10003.
E-103, listed at $325,000 LH, is also a one-bedroom/one-bathroom that has had a partial remodel. If you enjoy being at garden level, this is the unit to have - its close proximity to one of the little pools is great. E-103 is also being rented through the front desk program and being sold turnkey with furnishings. Visit www.visualtour.com/show.asp?t=2676858&prt=10003 to see the unit.
The studio we have - Unit A-210 listed at $275,000 LH - has to be one of the best locations right on the fairway with a view from the lanai of the ocean and Molokai. Conveniently located near the upper parking area, the unit is not rented but could easily be put into the front desk program. Tiled throughout, the unit features an updated kitchen and walk-in shower in the bathroom. The owners live in the unit, and have made some very practical alterations and keep it in immaculate condition. Along with a queen-size bed, there is also a custom built-in Murphy bed which is handy. Being sold with the main pieces of furniture and kitchen ware, this is a great purchase. Visit www.visualtour.com/show.asp?t=2849552&prt=10003 for a virtual tour.
With a record 11 units sold this year, the Maui Eldorado is proving to be one of the most desirable hidden gems in Kaanapali. All of these units include 10 percent of the fee simple interest in the land and are 90 percent leasehold unless otherwise noted.
