West Maui Oceanfront Homes for Sale

West Maui, which stretches from Olowalu to Kapalua, naturally has a very limited number of oceanfront homes unlike other coastal areas of the island.  A majority of the oceanfront homes here are on rocky beaches or points, and only a handful are located on the beaches in Olowalu, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kahana, Napili and Kapalua.

I was recently asked to write a piece for MauiNow.com on living in Kapalua.  It quickly morphed into a piece on the Kapalua Hiking and Walking Trails, as I realized that they are my favorite part of living in Kapalua.  There is so much natural beauty in the resort--it is just 1600 acres set within 22,000+ acres of conservation land.  There is a 45 acre marine preserve, and the area is home to endangered species.
