Makena Maui – What Is It Like To Live in Makena?

What’s the difference between Makena and the other parts of Maui?

Living in Makena

What I find about Makena is that it feels remote, it’s rural, but it’s also not. And that’s what people love about Makena. It is just a little bit off the beaten path.

Now Makena real estate tends to be some of the most expensive real estate in all of the island of Maui and probably in all of the state. Currently, there are not a lot of properties for sale in Makena, but when they come up, they do get snapped up pretty quick, because there is this unique demand for Makena property.

Makena’s Mystique

It really is a charming world down in Makena, there is this mystique about Makena. And the best way that I can explain it is that when I talk to people, they often say what a special place Makena is. In all the years of selling real estate and all the people that I know that I’ve spoken to and have talked to about Maui and real estate, I’ve heard so many times, “oh my gosh, I named my daughter Makena.” I’ve never heard anybody tell me that they named their son or daughter Kihei. And that really does convey this special spiritual part that Makena has to offer in Maui. Yes, It is expensive and rightfully so.
