Aloha, and Welcome to Wailea Maui
Wailea is a little oasis found at the end of the road heading south from Kihei Maui. Years ago I remember driving to Wailea with my family to go the beach on a dirt road, and parking at what is now known as the Four Seasons Resort. Where the Four Season Resort stands, that use to be sand dunes, and one of the prettiest stretches of beach. Times have changed, and as people discovered the beauty of Wailea/Makena, it developed into one of the world’s finest planned oceanfront developments in the world.
Myself I feel I have grown up with the Wailea development, having worked on the development of the the first hotel in Wailea, Intercontinental Hotel, which is now known as The Marriott Hotel. As a contractor in later years I worked with Goodfellow Bros working on the last phase of Makena Surf Resort, which is an oceanfront condominium in Makena Maui.
Moving on from construction after 16 years owning Nickens Interiors with my brother, I became a Realtor. I been fortunate to work on sales teams with Wailea Beach Villas, an oceanfront development on Wailea Beach, consisting of 98 villas units. Other projects included 120 units at Ho’olei Wailea luxury condominiums across from the Grand Wailed Hotel and Spa, and Papal Wailea. Lastly working with on the sales team at Wailed Fairway Villas condominiums. So looking back at the development of Wailea, it has also been part of my journey growing up on Maui.
People have discovered Wailea planned community and all the benefits it has to offer. As you drive into Wailea you will discover three world class golf courses, The Blue Course, Wailea Gold and Wailea Emerald golf course. With perfect weather and gentle trade winds blowing it is the perfect setting for a round of golf. Wailea golf courses have been rated with the top golf courses in the world by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. For those that love tennis, there is the Wailea Tennis Club, located up the street from The Shops at Wailea.
