Hawaiian living is considered the epitome of luxury and relaxation. It takes a little work and the right circumstances, but owning a home or a condo in the Aloha State can be a reality for more people than you’d think. The biggest obstacle you face in becoming a Hawaiian is which city and island to move to once you take the plunge. This can be rather difficult to choose as Hawaii is not lacking in gorgeous destinations. Oahu, Hawai’i, Maui, and Kauai are all stunning and incomparable, but they all have very different things to offer their residents. Because of the remote nature of some of the islands, choosing a Hawaiian condo should not just be based on real estate value. If you end up a ferry, boat, or small plane ride from any of your favorite activities and events, Hawaii can become more expensive than you can imagine.
Overwhelmed yet? It’s ok. For those who are new to Hawaii and its pleasures, there is a perfect city in which to look at real estate. First-time Hawaii residents should seriously look at condos for sale in Kihei. Located on the Island of Maui, Kihei is a small town that boasts the best of island relaxation, resort living, and other outdoor pleasures. It can be the perfect location for new Hawaiian transplants.
Here are 4 reasons that the condos for sale in Kihei are the best choice for first time Hawaii residents:
Kihei Has Fantastic Beach Access

What little nightlife Maui can boast has its home in Kihei. Each resort has clubs and restaurants, but it is the local gems like “Life’s A Beach” on HI 311 that offer drinks specials and karaoke and all only a stone’s throw from the water.
