Maui is known for beautiful weather all year long and Wailea has some of the best on the island. With only a handful of rainy days per year, moderately warm daily temperatures and plenty of sunshine, who wants to be inside? There are plenty of times, however, when you’ve had enough sun at the beach or on the golf course and want to be home. With these Wailea open air properties you can have the best of both worlds.
These three properties recently hit the real estate market and have a true indoor/outdoor flow. Enjoy all the conveniences at home without feeling as though you’re missing out on that sweet plumeria-scented breeze. Each of these homes are unique, yet share a few of the same amenities. You have the security of being in a gated community, a tranquil pool, ocean-view and wall length glass pocket doors which open the living spaces to the tropical air.
Whether you’re actively in the market for a luxury Wailea property or just fantasizing about one day owning a home like one of these, click the links to view the photos. What you see on this page does not give justice to the real indoor/outdoor ambiance these homes possess.
Stepping through the front door of this $6.5 million-dollar home you’ll immediately understand that the view alone is worth millions. Admire the ocean, West Maui Mountains, and Wailea Blue Golf Course from the entire top floor of this two-story house. Indoor/outdoor living? Absolutely! Every glass wall showcasing this magnificent view disappears with the pull of a handle. From the foyer entrance, living room, kitchen and master bedroom you’re feeling the open air.
Favorite Feature — The stunning infinity pool with a magnificent ocean, West Maui and golf course view.
This tropical ranch oasis at the end of a cul-de-sac opens to an outdoor foyer before even entering the house. Continue walking straight and you’re already outside again on the large private lanai. This property has been laid out keeping indoor/outdoor living in mind. The designated master bedroom faces the pool, yet has been furnished as an additional sitting room, perfect for entertaining. An outdoor courtyard separates the main living room and sitting room. Whether you’re cooking in the kitchen, playing piano in the living room, reading in the converted sitting room or laying by the pool, you’re definitely experiencing indoor/outdoor living.
Favorite Feature — The emerald tiled pool gives the outdoor space a lush appearance.
The epitome of indoor/outdoor living. While it’s customary to remove your shoes before entering a home in Hawaii, you won’t even know where to remove them! The floor to ceiling sliding glass doors keep the living room, office and kitchen open to the outdoors. And that’s just the top floor. Downstairs you’ll be at one with nature while showering in the grand master bathroom. Afterwards just step into the Maui sunshine to dry. Of course, this area is private from the neighbor’s view.
While already a large 4 bed/4 bath structure at nearly 4,000 sq. ft., this home feels even larger with the covered outdoor living space. If indoor/outdoor living in Wailea is what you’re in the market for, 198 Heleuma Place is a must see. Many island homes take advantage of the temperate climate, but this one has taken it to the next level.
Favorite Feature — The indoor/outdoor shower in the master bathroom.
