Lofted Luana Kai C308

Luana Kai C308 is a rare and coveted lofted unit with just under 1000 sqft of interior living. While the lofted area is open to the bottom, it functions as the 2nd bedroom of the unit and has been tastefully upgraded to like a master suite. Upgraded top to bottom with darker wood tones, the unit offers a Hawaiian style vibe that perfectly fits this beachfront community. The kitchen, dining, and living area are all in an open concept floor plan that creates one large spacious living area for entertaining.

While its hard not to be taken back by the interior, the outdoor lanai does not skip a beat and is the perfect outdoor sport for lounging. The lanai and living area can be opened up to create an extended area for when guests are over or to let in the breezy Kihei trade winds.

Lowest Priced Listing: Luana Kai C102

Luana Kai C102 is a rather original ground floor unit with excelent location in the community and is only a quick stroll to the beach. The lanai at the back of the unit is perfectly suited for dusting the sand off from the beach, a great drying station for wet swim gear, and of course your own outdoor lounging/entertaining area. The unit has been pretty much untouched since it was first built, except for some upgraded appliances. Over the years, it has been well taken care and is evident through the state of the original finishes. The unit is truly turn key and being sold furnished for those who are ready to make use of it right away.

With 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and 643 sqft, it is a nice single level condo that priorities many of the community amenities like: a lovely pool and jacuzzi, bbq, shuffleboard, and public tennis courts. There is plenty of vacation rental history upon request and can accurately depict anticipated cashflow.

Luana Kai Market Update 2018

The Luana Kai market has been off to a great start with an average of 1 condo sold per month since the start of the year. Although the average has been 1 unit sold/month, sales have been spotty with 2 in January and May, and 1 sale in each of February, March, and July. In total, $3.8 million has been sold in running sales volume so far with the number set to increase due to the 1 unit in escrow. Not surprisingly, buyers have been quick to snap up Luana Kai units with 4 units being sold within 2 months of coming to market and only 1 unit needing just under a year to find a buyer.

Sold prices here can vary widely. On one end, a buyer will pay as low as $400k, while on the high end, a another buyer just a little under $900k. Of course the wide discrepancies can be attributed to location in the community, level of remodel, and short term rental income. The $400k and $500k price points were the most dominant with 3 units sold in each and only 1 sold in the upper $800k range. Buyers should expect to pay anywhere from $460 to $850 per sqft.
