HOA & Maintenence Fees

This property looks like a house but is technically a residential condo with a homeowner’s association and maintenance fees. Monthly fees are $255 and cover internet, common property maintenance and the best part is, being a part of a homeowner’s association, the streets and garden areas are kept nice and orderly. (You can do whatever you want in your backyard — maybe add a water feature?!)

History in Lahaina, Maui

It is clear why royalty chose this temperate spot for their capital; the Kamehameha lineage ruled the Hawaiian kingdom from a sacred area called Moku’ula, in Lahaina. The weather here is almost always sunny, in the 80s with the ocean a few degrees cooler, with light trade winds to cool off the beach. The ocean is usually calm, protected by the outer reef, and fish are abundant inside the reefs. Turtles and monk seals are often found on the beach. Several easy waves break out front (surfing was a royal sport after all). The sun sets out front creating a colorful evening show before the cool nights.

Whalers also dreamed of coming ashore to Lahaina for many of the same reasons: The delicious array of fresh foods, the strong rum drinks, and the beautiful local women. They probably also enjoyed a refreshing swim and a bath after so many months at sea…

In the 1800s, hundreds of ships could be seen offshore. In fact, the whalers enjoyed themselves so much so that the king built a prison principally to keep the sailors out of trouble while they sobered up. The Colonial, Plantation, and Craftsman architecture of Kahoma Village echoes the whaling days and fits in with the Pioneer Inn and other historical buildings in town. This particular home has plantation details.
