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.

As we navigate an unusual time, many buyers and sellers are wondering how to value

Kapalua's famed Plantation Course is home to the PGA TOUR's Sentry Tournament of Champions, an invitation-only tournament featuring an elite field of tour winners from the year before.  Consistently ranked as the #1 golf course in Hawaii, with numerous awards and accolades, playing the Plantation is a must for golfers visiting Maui.

It has been said that the course has become easier over the years for the pros, yet harder for the recreational user.  The course closed early in 2019, for an extensive refinement project with the assistance of one of the original designers, Ben Crenshaw, along with Troon's Design Development and
