Wailea Fairway Estates
Wailea Fairway Estates located on the south-east base of Haleakala, just south of Kihei, Wailea is a luxury planned development on 1,500 acres offering a superb quality of life for its residents by meticulous integration of residential and resort activities to the best advantage of the area’s scenic beauty. Wailea in the Hawaiian language means “waters of Lea”. Lea is the goddess of canoe builders, and legend has it that she would transform herself into a forest bird and fly over this beautiful coastline. During World War II this area was used by the military with Ulua Beach nicknamed Little Tarawa by Marines practicing amphibious landings so they could land on the island of Tarawa. After the war in 1957 Matson Navigation purchased 1,500 acres with the hopes of expanding their hotel operations but the parcel was not developed. In the 1960’s Alexander and Baldwin gained control of Matson and of the undeveloped land. They studied the land’s potential and partnered with Northwest Mutual Life Insurance Company to create the residential resort community of Wailea. Today Wailea Resort boasts over 2,000 luxury homes and condominiums, six major resort hotels, three commercial/shopping destinations, three world class golf courses, an award winning tennis center and one and half miles of fabulous sandy beach.
