And there is plenty to do here and affordable, less touristy eating establishments, nearby golf courses, the Maui Historical Society, and you can even go bowling. The population is diverse and most who live and work on Maui most likely live in Wailuku or neighboring Kahului. There are a couple of beaches like Waiehu Beach Park near the golf course of the same name, but if you are a beach person there may be better possibilities in places like Sprecklesville or Paia on the north shore or the oceanfront/beach communities on the more expensive lee side of the island like Kaanapali, Kihei, or Wailea.
Some folks live in less expensive areas like Wailuku and then invest in vacation rental properties in tourist areas to offset their cost of living. Wailuku is perfect for folks looking for quick access to Maui’s only larger metro area, Kahului, for shopping, and the all-important OGG airport. Costco, Target, and Whole Foods are just 15-20 minutes by car. Neighboring Kahului has two shopping malls, all the major automobile dealerships and repair shops, movie theaters, University of Hawaii Maui College (2 yr), the Maui Arts and Culture Center just to name a few reasons to locate near Kahului.

"Went Beyond What Any Other Realtor I Know Of Would Do"
Eric was outstanding from the start in our home- buying process in Hawaii. From the beginning and throughout, Eric was always at our service with prompt, knowledgable advise and communication during the process. He helped us find the perfect home for our family with some personal video he sent us and then expertly moved us into a good position to buy the home. He also helped us during the inspection periods and with our negotiations to improve our buying confidence. We couldn't be more pleased with Eric's quality, knowledge, personality and negotiation skills. He was truly excellent.
