Kilohana Ridge: Kihei’s Most Highly Sought After Luxury Commuity

Kihei’s Crown Jewel

Kilohana Ridge is one of Kihei’s most desirable neighborhoods for an abundance of reasons. The community is only a street over from Kilohana Waena and Kilohana Hema; similar locations in almost every aspect besides price point and construction. Both Waena and Hema are custom home neighborhoods, while Ridge was developed by Towne Island Homes back in 2003. If you are familiar with Kihei, Kilohana Ridge borders the northern edge of Wailea, just above the world famous Keawakapu beach.


Since the homes are on the cusp of the Wailea resort, there are some fantastic deals in the neighborhood; this simple change in zip code is profitable for a few reasons, but mainly because buyers are getting Wailea luxury at Kihei prices — or simply, a discounted Wailea lifestyle. The community is just up-slope from the Mana Kai, Kihei’s premier “condo-tels” in Kihei.

The neighborhood provides a perfectly convenient home base for residents who enjoy being on the greens (3 championship Wailea golf courses) in the morning and enjoy watching the beautiful South Maui sunsets on the sandy shores of Wailea. However, if you enjoy the “Hawaiian Time” lifestyle, Kilohana Ridge is still a perfect fit. All of South Kihei is at your fingertips as it is just a short walk to S. Kihei Road. Kilohana Ridge allows residents to find the perfect blend of luxury, local, and outdoor Maui lifestyles.

Market Activity

Within the last six weeks, two homes sold in Kilohana Ridge for $960K and $1,175,000, respectively. These closing reflect the rise in market value as we now shift towards a seller’s market. Home prices across the entire island of Maui are continuing to upward trend.

The location of Kilohana Ridge is very hard to beat. It lies along the northern border of the Wailea Resort, which is highlighted by: The Shops at Wailea (for fine or casual dining as well as boutique shopping); 3 championship golf courses; and the Wailea Tennis Club. Just a few minutes back up north along the coast of South Kihei Rd. and you’ll be in the heart of South Maui’s largest town; close to Kamaole Beach Parks I, II, and III, Rainbow Mall, and a couple local favorite lunch spots, 808 Deli (for incredible sandwiches) and Da Kitchen (for humungous Hawaiian-style plate lunches). If you aren’t familiar with this part of the Valley Isle, I would like to extend myself as a resource for tips on restaurants, shopping, schools, are anything else that might be on your mind when considering your real estate options.
