An urban escape from typical tourist hotspots, with ease and convenience at the forefront of living.

Welcome to Kahului

An urban escape from typical tourist hotspots, with ease and convenience at the forefront of living
Pressed into the crook of Maui’s central, north-facing shores, the city of Kahului is considered to be part of the overarching metropolitan area known as the Kahului-Wailuku-Lahaina Metropolitan. Decidedly urban but much less tourist-centered than its sister cities, Kahului is where the true locals go for their commercial needs.
Kahului was established in 1850 during Maui’s sugar cane heydays and has since developed into Maui’s main hub for commercial business and shopping. It houses both the island’s airport and its biggest harbor, which makes it a bustling city for trade. Rather than a popular vacation destination, Kahului is where the accessibility of urban living meets the perfect island weather and ease of Hawaii.

Kahului Real Estate Market

Kahului’s size necessitated a variety of housing styles and price ranges in order to fit the needs of its diverse residents. Because of this, Kahului has one of the more abundant selections of single-family homes and typical residential housing as opposed to massive estates — though they definitely still exist here. Kahului’s long history also facilitates great architectural variety, ranging from modern oceanfront high-rise condos to mid-century, bi-level houses resting in quiet neighborhoods. Kahului real estate is in high demand. Contact 'Ohana Real Estate Team to find luxury condos, waterfront property, houses & beach homes for sale in Kahului.

People & Lifestyle

Kahului mixes the palpable vacation vibes of coastal Maui with the down-to-earth mentality of its locals and tons of urban amenities. Residents can choose from a multitude of options for their day-to-day needs and entertainment, whether it's heading to one of the many malls or hitting up the famed turquoise waters. With a population of over 30,000, Kahului is easily one of Maui’s busiest locations.

Dining, Shopping, & Entertainment

Kahului is a town of convenience, and nowhere is this truer than in its plethora of retail, dining, and commercial offerings. Notable shopping destinations include those such as Queen Ka’ahumanu Center, an airy indoor-outdoor space housing more than 100 stores. Those in Kahului also frequent the Maui Mall, which blends services with boutiques and national brands. 
Due to its vast size and urban nature, the dining scene in Kahului is also incredibly varied, easily encompassing dozens of international flavors, from casual to world-class. Tin Roof keeps things simple with their classic Hawaiian food, while the Bistro Casanova thrills its diners with a menu of delectable Italian cuisine. 
Restaurant Matsu is an expert in Japanese fare, and their family-style meals are perfect for Friday night gatherings. Sports enthusiasts and groups of friends can often be found at Kahului Ale, which dishes out American pub fare, and guests can watch games on multiple flat-screen televisions. Akamai Coffee is the go-to for 100% Maui beans and brews, including their award-winning Maui Mokka blend.

Things to Do

Kahului provides many opportunities for expanding the intellectual mind, learning Maui’s history, and embracing community and culture. The city is home to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, a live performing and visual arts location that is the largest and most comprehensive mixed-art center in all of Hawaii. Their performance venue hosts big-name performers from multiple genres, as well as lecturers and field experts. 
The Sugar Museum in Kahului pays tributes to one of the biggest contributors to Hawaii’s early growth, the sugar industry, and its multiethnic plantations. Additionally, Kahului’s diversity is displayed in the celebration of several different cultural holidays, including the Chinese New Year Celebration held in the Maui Mall each year. 
Created with the dream of establishing a place that felt like home and ohana for all, the Maui Sunday Market aims to revitalize and expand Kahului’s local markets while facilitating community togetherness in a fun, casual environment.


Kahului is home to several excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
• Seabury Hall, 6-12, highly rated private high school
• University of Hawaii Maui College, a highly rated public 4-year university
