The manicured resort community of Wailea adjoins southernmost Kihei and is home to an array of single-family residence and condo options, most of them gated and some of them ocean front. Wailea real estate purchase options include communities dedicated to primary and second home ownership, and those which allow short term (vacation) rentals.

Square footage runs the gamut from around 2,000 square feet to much larger, in seven gated neighborhoods.
