Polynesian Shores Condos For Sale
Polynesian Shores is quaint direct oceanfront 2 story vacation rental complex located on the border of Honokowai and Mahinahina. All of the units in Polynesian Shores are fee simple whole ownership. There is a seasonal very small (just a couple of yards) beach that is directly to the south of Polynesian Shores and access to this beach could be easier but is still accessible.Polynesian Shores has fantastic year views of both Molokai and Lanai island, year round sunsets, and is fantastic for whale watching. I personally spend a lot of time out in front of Polynesian Shores on my SUP board surfing the winter swells that line this coastline.
Polynesian Shores is a very quiet resort so it generally does attract a more mature demographic or at least one that highly covets solitude. If you are looking for a large resort with a lot of amenities, this is not the spot for you. If you want to enjoy a spectacular oceanfront setting with sprawling grassy lawns, beautiful tropical flowers and shrubs, and drop dead gorgeous views while reading your booking listening to birds chirp and waves lap the shoreline, it is tough to beat Polynesian Shores.

More Information About Polynesian Shores
Polynesian Shores Location
Polynesian Shores is a low-rise low-density oceanfront complex that is located directly off the lower Honoapiilani Rd on the Honokowai side of the Honokowai/Mahinahina border. Just up the road from Polynesian Shores you will find the Kapalua Airport which is actually in Kahana not Kapalua. Polynesian Shores is located between the Kuleana Resort to the South and the the adjoining Mahinahina Beach Resort to the North. The most desirable aspect of ownership at Polynesian Shores is its relatively affordable price point for a well kept classically plantation style vacation rental resort. The entry to the water is very calm and inviting unless there are large winter surf swells. The swimming, kayaking, and stand up paddling are absolutely fantastic right out front of the resort.
The Polynesian Shores complex is relatively close to the lower road and is not especially well insulated so there is some occasional road noise from the back bedroom areas in the building that directly backs up to the road. It is not considerably noise but you can definitely hear it. This only applies to the one particular building within the resort.

Polynesian Shores Property Improvements
The Polynesian Shores complex doesn’t have a seawall but there is a bit of a rocky coastline right in front of the resort and the buildings are set back further from the ocean so erosion is not really an issue here. There was an oceanfront deck out above the coastline at one point but it became rather dilapidated and believe that the state restricted the reconstruction of this deck so it was removed in its entirety.
The buildings are well kept but I have observed just a few deferred maintenance items. One important note is that currently at Polynesian Shores there is no A/C permitted for any of the units at the resort. The board is possibly discussing making this change and they would likely need to upgrade the electrical work but this is what it currently stands as.
The onsite resident manager keeps very close tabs on everything at the complex.
Polynesian Shores Amenities
The pool at Polynesian Shores is round and located on the center ocean facing courtyard of the complex. It is moderate in size and there is no jacuuzi. There are several grills around the pool area.
The oceanfront lawn at Polynesian Shores is beautiful and gently slopes towards the ocean. This is a perfect place for those with extra energy to stretch their legs or for lawn games.
Polynesian Shores Vacation Rentals
There is an onsite management company for Polynesian Shores and thus the owners have the option to utilize this program or to rent the properties out on their own or with an indepedent management company. Polynesian Shores does have fairly strong consistent following of returning guests. The rental rates at Polynesian Shores are pretty moderate but so are the aquisition costs so it all works in tandem.
Polynesian Shores HOA Fees
The HOA fees at Polynesian Shores are relatively high in comparison to comparable buildings at $1.45/sq.ft. of interior living area do not cover electric costs so you will want to budget for this. The complex doesn’t allow pets of any kind.
Polynesian Shores Real Estate Offerings
The majority of the ground floor units one bedroom one bath residences of about 550 sq.ft. plus a covered lanai leading right out to the grassy lawns.
The majority of the second story units two bedroom units of roughly 750-850 sq.ft. but there are a few select ground floor single level two bedroom units as well. It is important to note that the upstairs two bedroom units with a loft area are not actually permitted as bedrooms with the County of Maui.
There are also several three bedroom units near the oceanfront which rarely ever come up for sale, these are technically permitted as 2 bedroom units with a loft third bedroom. I represented the buyers and sellers on the last 3 bedroom sale which took place in 2013 and the previous three bedroom sale took place in 2005.
