The Masters at Kaanapali Hillside: Market Update

Masters at Kaanapali Hillside

The Masters is one of my favorite condominium communities, having gotten my start in real estate working on the developer's sales team (far too long ago).  The property overlooks the Royal Kaanapali golf course, with sweeping views of the ocean and outer islands.  The low-rise, low-density development, lends a feeling of privacy and space, with 200 units on approximately 38 acres.  Amenities in this gated community include two pools, two spas, and four tennis courts, and the ability to have BBQ's.  It's a popular choice for both primary residents and second homeowners alike seeking to live in the Kaanapali Resort.
