Choosing Your Paradise
UPDATE: Most of these properties sold.
The thing about Maui is–everyone is living their dream! Anyway you slice it, paradise can be found. On all sides of the island, magic is in abundance. There are truly no “bad” sides to the island. From the rainy eastern shores of Hana, up the tippy top of snowy (although not now, but on rare occasions) Mount Haleakala, down the rolling hillside into Central Maui, up the steep greenery of the West Maui Mountains, and onto the rushing western break off of Olowalu, Maui is the spot! Experience the journey, it’s a ride you will never forget. There are a million Maui real estate agents, but some have their ears to the ground more than others (and more experience.)
Peahi, or more affectionately known as Jaws
North Shore Real Estate
Look at it this way, the North Shore is a funky place on Maui. It tends to be less developed and less crowded with plenty of world-class beaches. It does not cater commercially to resort-oriented tourists, which is reflected in the local atmosphere. It’s home to some luxury properties, but it’s mostly for those who like to rough it once in a while.
Paia, the heartbeat of the North Shore

East Maui Real Estate
The East side of Maui, more commonly thought of as Hana, is a very secluded side of the island which has some very obvious cons but it’s mostly about the pros. I particularly enjoy Hana because of the spotty reception, it’s the only oasis I think of when I want to unplug from my phone. There’s something refreshing about Hana, I don’t know if it’s because of some of the purest drinking water on tap (the tap water comes directly from many of the streams and waterfalls on that side of the island), or the endless amount of waterfalls.

Central Maui Real Estate
Central Maui is an interesting part of the island, not that it stands out in any particular way because of a major flaw; it’s just that a majority of residents call it home and functions as the hub of Maui. Kahului Airport falls under central jurisdiction, as a result, it tends to back up with traffic and tourists during peak hours.

West Maui Real Estate
It’s only fitting that we end with West Maui, the side of the island the sun sets on. The West side of the island is another hot bed for tourists, in particular, Front Street, Lahaina (the first established capital of Hawaii before moving to Honolulu), Kapalua, and Kaanapali. However, there is a fair amount of locals on this side of the island as it is home to the famous old Lahaina Luna High School.
