As record-breaking cold temperatures swept across the nation on New Year’s Eve, the vast majority of the county bundled up and prepared their families, homes and pets for freezing temperatures. But here on Maui, that was far from the case.
There’s no doubt Maui is the best place to escape chilly winter weather, where residents and visitors can enjoy a temperate, tropical climate year round. Fortunately for those who want to escape from cooler climates on the mainland, there are hundreds of units across the island that provide a low-maintenance vacation home perfect for all seasons.
Whenever you're ready to flee the mainland's harsh winter weather, these condominiums are waiting for you. Here are a few of our favorites:
This Kapalua villa is a must-see for anyone who is seeking the best in a world-class, oceanfront community. Ironwoods 73 offers one of the finest oceanfront locations in all of West Maui, with panoramic views that span from Arnold Palmer's Kapalua Bay Course to the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean.
As you stand on the lanai, it almost feels as if you’re standing on the helm of a ship, gazing out to the pristine coastal waters that span miles to the Pailolo channel and Lipoa point to the north. Enjoy spectacular sunsets and tropical vistas from the lanai or even inside the home, which boasts an open floor plan with massive picture windows. This two-bedroom, three-bathroom masterpiece is the ultimate example of luxury resort living on Maui.
The pristine, white sands of Ulua Beach are just a minute walk from Wailea Elua 1505, which boasts the largest two-bedroom floor plan in the premier resort community. Expansive ocean views are found in both the master bedroom and living room, while there’s also a spacious lanai in the back of the unit where you can enjoy being surrounded by a tropical garden.
Wailea Elua is one of South Maui’s most coveted communities located in the heart of the island's most elite resort region. This low-density, gated community is located on the beach, where you can enjoy two pools, manicured landscaping and fitness center. The community is just a short stroll from five-star hotels, fine dining and the famed Shops at Wailea.
