What is a lock-off unit, you may ask? A lock-off unit is a unit that can be split into two separate units (sometimes referred to as a dividable suite). There are only a few buildings on the West Side that have this excellent feature. Short-term rentable condos have gone through the roof in sales. Many buildings have no condos left for sale. With occupancy rates nearing an all-time high, it is no wonder why so many investors are snapping up investment properties. When buying an investment property, flexibility is a huge advantage. That is why this Kapalua Golf Villa unit 24T3-4, with its lock-off feature, is so appealing.

The ability to lock-off the unit and divide it into two units creates flexibility for the owner - they can either rent each side separately, or the unit as a whole. Furthermore, the owner could rent one side of the lock-off and stay in the other side, so in essence collecting rent even though they are here on vacation. Having a lock-off also is wonderful for the ever-changing family size. Maybe you need two bedrooms when the kids come, but when it is just a weekend for two, one bedroom or a studio is enough. Taking it a step further, when the economy is down, people tend to rent the smaller, less expensive unit. So, a lock-off unit will give you a slight hedge against a softer economy, thereby allowing you to rent a smaller unit, rather than a larger unit, when rentals slow down.

With inventory getting very tight on Maui, there is one unit that has the flexibility of a lock-off, the beauty of Kapalua ocean views, has designer upgrades, and is located overlooking the Kapalua Bay Golf Course - this of course being the exquisite Kapalua Golf Villas unit 24T3-4. The Kapalua Golf Villas have been redone on the outside, and some of the units are redone on the inside. Not all units are lock-off. But, unit 24T3-4 is currently on the market and fits this requirement.
