Lahaina has a rich history and is home to many Maui events throughout the year. Lahaina Real Estate is a blend of Condos, Moderately Priced Single Family Homes, and Stunning Luxury Homes. Two recently built condo developments, Hoonanea and Opukea, are popular options for both primary residents and second homeowners. Four of the condominium complexes in town allow for short term vacation rentals. Launiupoko Neighborhood is one of the more popular locations for high end luxury homes on the island. Lahaina continues to grow while developers are careful to honor the culture an history of the area. The new residential development, Kahoma Village, is a unique opportunity to purchase new homes within walking distance to the beach.

Lahaina was once the capital of the Hawaian Kingdom in the early 19th century. This is where King Kamehameha III chose to make his home. Lahaina later became a a vibrant Whaling Village. The history of the area is still felt today with several museums and the world famous Front Street which has been preserved by Maui Historical Society. Front Street was ranked in the top ten Greatest Streets by the American Planning Association. Today Lahaina is dubbed “Art Capital of the Pacific” due to having the most Art Galleries per capita than any other town in The United States. Every Friday night from 6pm to 9pm is “Art Night” where the Art Galleries offer a meet and greet with featured Artists and is just one of many town events and celebrations than draw not only residents from around the island but also visitors from around the world. Lahaina is also the center of activity during Maui’s Fourth of July Celebration and Halloween on Front Street attracts visitors from throughout the Hawaiian Islands and even the world.
