Why Residents Love Living in Kahana Ridge

Kahana Ridge is Such a Popular Neighborhood in West Maui

Kahana Ridge has been a desirable neighborhood for single-family homes in West Maui since the first homes in the subdivision were built in 1999. In the last several months, we are seeing just how desirable it is with the inventory moving quickly. In the past year, 9 properties have sold in this neighborhood and 7 of those have closed since December. Another 6 properties are currently pending. The only active property has been on the market for less than 4 months.

5. The Trails

The subdivision backs up to vacant land that used to be pineapple fields. Not in use for quite some time, there are multitudes of paths that are great for walking and running. They allow for wide open space and panoramic views of the ocean and the West Maui Mountains.
