Watch a video of the view from Montage at Kapalua Bay main lobby.
This past Saturday after showing properties to buyers and holding an open house at 116 Pulelehua at Pineapple Hill (my wonderful listing view here: http://www.116Pulelehua.com), I stopped by the Montage Residences at Kapalua Bay with my business partner Heleena Oliveira. We were invited to the soft opening this past spring but at that time, (read about the history of this property in my article here http://livingonmauinow.com/2014/04/07/the-montage-residences-kapalua-bay-taking-reservations/ ) the prices still weren’t set and they still had to get through the State of Hawaii procedures to offer it for sale. We have seen some brisk activity lately so I wanted to check in and view the updates and renovation. according to the salesperson at Montage, buyers who are very familiar with the Montage collection of luxury properties have bought here in Kapalua. He said they wanted to get in before the prices climb. Along with Kapalua Bay, the other Montage Hotels are at Beverly HIlls, Deer Valley, Laguna Beach and Palmetto Bluff.
