Beachside Main House & Cottage: Ideal Lahaina Location

A little known secret...There are very few residential beachside communities in all of West Maui. It's true. You say what?

Well first off, when I speak of beachside community...I'm not talking about high density condo on the beach community, or the 1-acre mansion on the beach community, and I'm definitely not talking about the high-on-the-hillside-and-gotta-golf-cart-down-to-the-beach community. These are all great communities in their own right; however, for the purposes of this article:

Alio Ohana Side Back Lanai

8,400+ sq foot lot, expansive property development and major upgrades (main house left, cottage straight)

Residential Beachside Community Means

1. Beach - The neighborhood must be in very close proximity to a lengthy stretch of sand. Not just the ocean's edge, seawall, or rocks. And not just a sliver of sand. At least a 1/4 mile or more; a place you can walk, run, sit, lounge, play, and enjoy.

2. Proximity - I mentioned it above. By close, I mean right there. 1-2 streets - and BAM - beach!

3. No highway separating neighborhood and beach - The difference between living mauka or makai of the highway. No Honoapiilani Hwy, No PCH. The highway must run behind the neighborhood.

4. No thru traffic - There is 1 access point in and out to the entire neighborhood. 1 road in, 1 road out.

5. The entire neighborhood must be flat - This is very important for walking, biking, pulling wagons, strollers, coolers, and other family beach town activities.

6. Residential regular - no hotels, timeshares, or mega mansions. Less than 10,000 sq fot lots, zoned R-2.

7. County Sewer and Water

8. No HOA or HOA fees

9. Speed limit signs 20mph or under

10. Avg Sales Price: under $1M

Beach access is just around the corner

Yeah, that close; beach access is just around the corner

Beach Lover's Paradise

Like I said, there are very few residential beachside communities in West Maui...However, there is a property at 420 Alio St (MLS# 369090) that meets every requirement above and then some. A place that allows you to walk, bike, stroll, or roll by wagon anywhere you want. A place that has the conveniences of Front St, Lahaina Harbor, and downtown, but also has its own protective seclusion cut off from high traffic or thru access. A place where you meet the neighbors, and not just the ones next meet people as you stroll/roll about enjoying the surroundings the neighborhood has to offer.
