Chapter 10 – Kapalua
Kapalua is situated on the northwest coast of Maui, and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in America. Kapalua Bay, the area’s namesake, was voted best beach in America by the Travel Channel. Kapalua has a fantastic view of the islands of Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi, as well as the West Maui Mountains. The weather in Kapalua is ideal, with very little rainfall and few cloudy days. The air quality in Kapalua is significantly better than other areas of the country. With a population of less than 400 people as of the 2010 census, this area of Maui definitely has a small town feel.
One of the amenities Kapalua has to offer is the Kapalua Resort. The resort has two golf courses, and hosts the Hyundai Tournament of Champions every January, the kickoff of the PGA tour. Golf lessons are also available at the Kapalua Golf Academy.
The resort offers accommodations for visitors with everything from a vacation rental home program to a Ritz-Carlton Hotel. There are also tennis courts on the resort. The resort offers many activities to residents and visitors, including hiking trails, zip lining, and a full service spa. The resort also offers private event venue rentals for weddings, parties and corporate events and meetings. There are many restaurants in and around the resort, and the Ritz-Carlton also offers many different restaurant choices.
For those who want to make their home at the Kapalua Resort, the Kapalua Resort Association ensures the maintenance of Kapalua. The Association also provides a shuttle as well as maintains common areas and roads. Residents have a myriad of choices when it comes to what type of home to purchase.
From residential suites at The Ritz-Carlton, to condominiums and villas there is an ideal home for everyone. The estimated house or condo value average in Kapalua in 2011 was $888,000, and most rentals averaged $2,000 a month. The average income of residents in Kapalua is $118,000 annually. The unemployment rate in 2012 was less than 5%. As there are very few residents with children living in Kapalua (the average age is 56 years) there are no schools in the community.
“Adrienne and Howard and their team were amazing for us. We both bought and sold our home thru them, and they helped us through every step, every time. They were understanding, knowledgeable and professional. they made what would have been a grueling process easier, and I can say how much we appreciate all their hard work! Highly recommend!!!”
“Awesome experience with TEAM LALLY! We sold the home faster than expected with professional service from TEAM LALLY. I’d recommend their services to anyone coming or going to Hawaii! The team concept was what sold us on the service they could provide. It’s nice to know that every aspect of the process is covered by people who specialize in that area. Buying Agents just focus on the buyers, Listing Agents just focus on selling your home and understanding the market at the time, processing agents become your main contact after you are “under contract” for specialized customer service. Howard was very responsive with all our questions, it was as if he never left the office! Thanks TEAM LALLY!”
“To put it simply…Team Lally never gave up! The short sale of our home was dragging on for more than a year! With Team Lally it was completely over in 4 months. Thank you Team Lally.”
“We were looking at vacation and investment opportunities and heard about Team Lally from their radio ads. They were very prompt and helpful and gave us a ton if insight about what to look for. We haven’t yet found the right opportunity but with this awesome team of pros I know we will. I was also super impressed with their website- very easy to use. Thanks Team Lally”
Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Kapolei, HI.
- I walked away from my property three years ago and assumed that it would get foreclosed upon or just disappear….Three years later I was contacted by a tenant that was being rented the condo from a company that was operating illegally and claimed to have ownership of it….I contacted Team Lally and they were able to navigate these very difficult waters: me not having paid my mortgage for three years, a company claiming ownership, the condo association not happy because they were not paid for three years…Team Lally worked through all of this to complete a short sale of the property and I paid virtually nothing…I worked with other real estate companies in the past and Team Lally blows them away, I would highly recommend them for all your real estate needsView this testimonial: http://www.zillow.com/profile/Team-Lally/Reviews/
“I am Adrienne Lally’s Real Estate Partner. If you think I’m a little biased. Your are correct. But I would challenge any one to say I’m not being totally honest when I say that Adrienne is the hardest working Reatlor I know. She cares for clients like family and always puts their interest first. I’ve personally seen her generosity in action. If you are looking for a true professional, a great Mom, a Veteran, an Athlete, a former gymnast, a Roller Derby Lady, a Military Spouse, a talented and experienced Realtor who leads the number one Keller Williams Team in the State with production making her one the top 50 Realtors that do 90% of the business in Hawaii look no further. There are Realtos who are great at internet marketing with no track record and those who are great at internet marketing and a top producing Realtor. Adrienne Lally is the later.”
“Team Lally was very professional throughout the entire process of selling my house. They got it on the market quickly, and within a week it had sold!”
“Team Lally embraces the team concept while staying professional. They were totally accessible, day or night, and they supported me through a very stressful process. Communication is key and Team Lally understands this completely.”
“Adrienne Lally and the team are absolutely wonderful. Adrienne exudes excellence and knowledge in the real estate field. Customer service and great communication skills are just a few of the qualities that Adrienne and the team take pride in. She looks out for the best interest of her clients and makes sure that the buying and selling process is easy and pain free! I would strongly recommend Adrienne and the team for the purchase or sale of your Hawaii home or condo.”
“We worked with Cathy from Team Lally during the purchase of our new house, and it was great. She was very professional, knowledgeable, responsive and fun to work with. We found a great house that we love and moved in ahead of the estimated closing date. Best of all, we paid less than the asking price, and her recommended offer was right on point with the VA appraisal. Overall, it was a great experience, and I would recommend Cathy and Team Lally to anyone looking for a house.”
