New Wailele Ridge Development in Napili Ready to Launch

There is not much to look at yet, but I am excited to say that Wailele Ridge, the touted condominium community planned for Napili that is said, “will blend the best of island living with thoroughly modern comforts, amenities, and convenience”, is set to begin sales in the near future. The project is located in West Maui just above Napili Market and Napilihau Road.


While pricing has yet to be determined, the entry price apparently is the low $400’s

This blog has been sitting on the shelf for a few weeks, as I had an at-length discussion with the developers sales office in mid-October. In addition for groundbreaking just right around the corner, this is what I found out:

1. Phase 1 Sales: They are releasing phase 1, a total of 7 buildings, and according to the site map, 44 units available (Buildings 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 17 & 18). There will be 158 units in all.

2. Pricing will be available after the condo docs are finalized. Estimates on the phone were 1-2 months. Condo documents are the main component holding up construction and they are in the process of finalization. Early part of December is the target.

3. The Public Lottery Will take place on December 2nd, from 4-6pm. Buyers must submit a pre-qualification letter or present proof of funds. And note: the public lottery is “just to hold a position” for Buyers…an order of selection, not the lottery to choose a unit.

Phase 1 sales consists of 7 buildings, 25 in all

4. Owner-Occupants First Priority: Primary residents and second homeowners only will qualify for the lottery.


Expansive and abundant ocean, island, and sunset views

5. Garages in a Condo?: Some units will have garages, some will not. And while a garage is always an awesome thing, a 2-car garage is even better. Ranging in size from approx. 180 sq. ft., 1-car to the bomber 400 sq. ft., 2-car garage. For a condo, this is tremendous!

6. Outdoor Space: Lanais will range from none to some units having a couple hundred square feet of lanai space. Options seem to be the theme here.


Molokai and the waters of the Pailolo Channel (separating Maui & Molokai)

7. Amenities: Infinity pool, multiple BBQs across the property, 2 spas, and a workout facility.

8. Smokers Beware: No smoking permitted on the property (even in the units).

9. Pets: 2 pets up to 35 lbs. are permitted.

Technically ground has broken: Water lines being dug.

10. Ocean & Island Views: Expansive ocean and Molokai views. Expansive!

11. It’s New!!! The newest development in West Maui = modern, beautiful, efficient!


This will look a lot different soon!

Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was an independent publisher, starting and operating Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Real Estate Weeklies, Maui Time Weekly (partner), and in 2005, I was a Mayors Small Business Award finalist. In 2009, after seeing the demand and living in an under serviced pet market, alongside my Mom, Susan we opened West Maui Pet Supply. I started my career after college as an account executive with Orlando Weekly ultimately becoming their Advertising Director. Then I moved on to Advertising Sales Manager at Orange County Weekly, in Southern California. I am native of Detroit, Michigan, but grew up in Florida splitting time between Miami, Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Fl.

Always attracted to healthy lifestyle, adventure, great weather, water sports and the outdoors, I moved to Maui in the summer of 2002.

I'm involved along with other fellow Hawaii Life comrades volunteering regularly at the Ka Hale A Ke Ola Shelter in West Maui and I'm on the Board of the Hawaii Life Charitable Fund. Through the outlet of the WM Pet Supply, I was heavily involved with the Maui Humane Society & ASCPA getting animals adopted & spayed/neutered. When I have free time you'll find me surfing, golfing, at the gym, a regular at yoga class, hanging at home with my animals or working in the backyard on my organic micro-farm (aka: food garden).
