Maui Meadows Overview:
On your way to Wailea, Maui you will pass by Maui Meadows. Maui Meadows is located mauka (mountain side) of Piilani Highway. This location allows for some spectacular ocean view properties with a bit cooler temperatures near the top of Maui Meadows.
There are approximately 632 properties in Maui Meadows. There are a mixture of private gated estates to simple cottages to vacant lots. Most lots are half acre in size, while some are more. These lots sizes allow for homes and cottages (ohanas).
It was developed and sold as three separate subdivisions in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s. Due to that there are three separate sets of CC&R’s. The earliest applies to the first subdivision filed, which consists of the lower portion of Maui Meadows. The second set a applies to the middle section, and the final set to the upper areas. The first two sets are identical. The final set, applying to the highest section, differs only in that lot owners whose properties adjoin the ranch lands are required to maintain a cattle proof fence. For any updates it is recommended you contact the home owners association.

IMPORTANT to keep in mind. We are dealing with a small pool of numbers from a statistical standpoint. Therefore a very large sale (such as 160 Kaimanu at 7.5 Million) can really skew the averages (just like a low distressed sale would ) . 160 Kaimanu is located in Maui Meadows but is also a gated neighborhood called “Kaimanu Estates” with land over 2 acres per lot, and spectacular homes along with outstanding ocean views.
So if I were to take Kaimanu Estates out of statistics and compare more apples to apples then it would be a more qualified picture regarding most of Maui Meadows. Although again this is still not quite accurate because Maui Meadows is an eclectic neighborhood. Some properties (typically priced under million) have only cottages, “ohanas” (under 1000 SF) with room to build a main house. Some properties have incredible ocean views with no electric lines in view plane. Some properties have ranch land neighboring one or two sides of its boundaries. Some homes are of superior construction and of architectural design currently favored by the market (such as 1026 Kupulau currently under contract, list price $3,345,00- this property is outstanding!). So all these objective and subjective factors play a significant role in determining market value.
For now, let’s take Kaimanu out of the picture in the statistics of sold data. Then the picture that emerges is as follows: Lowest price sold $600,000. Highest price sold was $1,300,000. Average price sold was $1,018,060. Average dollar per sq. ft. sold was $422,02.
A common rule of thumb for Maui Meadows is that the higher elevations would garner higher prices. However the home quality and views would be a major factor.
