Maui Eldorado

 
For those who are searching for sunshine and West Maui's mythical sunsets, Maui Eldorado continues to be a popular retreat in the heart of Kaanapali resort. Located on over ten acres, Maui Eldorado features luxurious spacious floor plans, and a world-class location on the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course with access to beautiful Kaanapali Beach, just north of Pu’u Keka’a (Black Rock.)  Whaler’s Village offers high end shopping and oceanfront dining close by.    
 
Owners and guests of Maui Eldorado can call the front desk and be picked up by a golf cart for a short ride to the beach, where they can lounge at the property’s private beach cabana.  The Maui Eldorado Beach Cabana, a one-of-a-kind beachfront clubhouse, features lounge chairs, restrooms, and a kitchen, and can be be used by owners and guests, or rented by owners for private parties.
 
The ocean view main pool deck was renovated in recent years. The main pool is large enough for swimming laps, and there are lounge and gas BBQ areas.  Upgrades to the smaller “turtle” and “dolphin” pools and fitness center have also been completed.   Additional amenities include a hot tub, garage parking, BBQ’s at the pool areas, a front desk, and concierge.
  
The Maui Eldorado was originally developed in 1968/1969.  The community is made up of a dozen 2-story low-rise concrete buildings and has a total of 204 units, featuring studio, 1 bedroom and 2-bedroom layouts. The studio units are 570 SF, 1-bedrooms are 960 SF and the 2-bedrooms are 1,440 SF. Maui Eldorado units are 90% leasehold and 10% fee simple property (meaning each unit owner owns a 10% in the fee interest in the land). The rest of the fee interest in the land is owned by the Ralph L Hoyle Trust.  This unique type of ownership offers value for owners who enjoy this amazing location at a lower price compared to other fee simple Kaanapali properties. The Maui Eldorado front desk provides key card access, much like a hotel. Outrigger has a strong vacation rental program at Maui Eldorado with offices now located off-site. Owners have their choice of property management companies when it comes to renting their units.
