What We Love

The views and location of Wailea Golf Estates are really second to none for South Maui. The neighborhood is gated and set back from any main roads, making the WGE peaceful and quiet. The streets are wide, the utilities are underground, and you get regular firework shows from the resorts below; what’s not to love?

What We Could Do Without

This may come as a shock, but some of our clients have actually felt the neighborhood is too quiet. Only about 10% of the homes are occupied year-round, so having close-knit relationships with all of your neighbors may be a long shot.

Here are the Association rules and information.

Primary Uses

Long-Term Rental

Long-term rentals are considered six months or longer here in Maui. You avoid some operations costs such as cleaning, higher management fees, and higher tax rates; however, you are likely to get more income running your unit as a short-term vacation rental. Long-term rentals also offer less flexibility for owner stays.

Second Home

If your goal is not to maximize your ROI but to simply use the unit as you please, you can do so. You would pay the highest and best use for real property tax, but you would not be subject to the TAT and GET taxes (see below) associated with income-producing short-term units.

Owner Occupant

If Maui is where you want to call home, the owner-occupant is the one for you. If you spend 270 days out of the year on Maui and your unit is your primary residence, then you can apply for the Owner-Occupant exemption (frequently asked questions)
