Sunset Ridge Joint Venture Selects Elite Pacific Properties to Market its Newest Development, Makai Vistas at Waikoloa

1477944274WAIKOLOA, HI— — Elite Pacific Properties, Hawaii’s largest luxury brokerage and vacation rental firm with offices on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island, has been selected by Sunset Ridge Joint Venture to market and sell Makai Vistas at Waikoloa, its newest development, which will be built in the Big Island’s community of Waikoloa Village. This new development of 31 single family detached homes will be built by Sunset Ridge Joint Venture’s Building Team and listed by Elite’s Project Division. Construction on the homes is expected to begin in January 2017 with the first homes completed and ready for occupancy by Fall 2017. Sales activities are anticipated to begin in January 2017.

Makai Vistas at Waikoloa will be a gated community of one and two story single-family homes offering a variety of floor plans with either two or three car garages. The development will feature a range of vistas from majestic mountain views to surrounding ocean views.  The project will also include beautiful features such as exterior rock walls, palm tree lined streets, custom sidewalks, and an elegant entry gate with multiple water features. Prices are slated to start in the mid $600,000’s.

Makai Vistas at Waikoloa is strategically positioned within the community of Waikoloa Village which offers amenities such as an 18-hole Golf course, tennis courts, and a community swimming pool.  The Village is also within close proximity to the resorts of Waikoloa Beach Resort and Mauna Lani Resort which offer great shopping, beaches, restaurants and other recreational activities. 


Lesli Lawton, Vice President for Sunset Ridge at Waikoloa, said, “We selected Elite Pacific Properties because of their knowledgeable team of professionals that are caring and committed to providing outstanding service to every client.  We are fortunate to have Elite Pacific Properties, one of the top real estate firms in Hawaii, selling our homes at Makai Vistas at Waikoloa.”

“We are especially excited about this relationship with the Developer, Sunset Ridge Joint Venture” said Paul Chicoine, Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Elite Pacific Properties. “For decades, Sunset Ridge Joint Venture has been building truly innovative and well-designed homes in livable communities in Waikoloa Village.  Makai Vistas at Waikoloa is going to be an exclusive gated community offering wonderful privacy and spectacular views on large lots.”

“The development addresses the needs of two distinct markets. The first is the Owner Occupant buyer who is seeking a quality new 3-bedroom home with a spectacular view in an upscale gated community which is conveniently located to Waimea, Kona, and Kohala.  The second is the Resort second home buyer who is seeking an alternative to a smaller condominium within the resort which carries a much higher maintenance fee and, in many situations, has no ocean view. The advantage to both types of buyers is they can now have all this; a quality detached three-bedroom single family home with a two or three car garage in a gated community with ocean views and all within minutes to the resorts for a fraction of the carrying costs.”

Paul Mayer, Managing Partner of Elite Pacific Properties said,” Makai Vistas at Waikoloa is the latest in the growing list of real estate developments we have been marketing through our Projects Division.  Sunset Ridge Joint Venture has a solid track record of building communities that meet market demand, and we are delighted to be working with such a well-known and established company.”
