Property description

Our Puamana home is an idyllic island style one bedroom bungalow, perfect for 1-2 couples or for a small family. Puamana is one of the lovliest places on Maui and our home has one of the best ocean view locations within Puamana, opposite the central lawn area. We are just steps to the beach. Puamana is a unique gated beachfront community one mile from Lahaina, where residents and guests share 28 acres of tropical gardens, almost a mile of beach, 2 surf breaks, 3 swimming pools, and a tennis court. Puamana was the former estate of the manager of the Pioneer Sugar Mill, and the gracious 1920’s historic home is now lovingly maintained as our Clubhouse. You can enjoy the plantation era reception rooms, piano, tiled courtyard, spectacular ocean front swimming pool (unique in the Islands), lending library, and lawns, all with the alluring ambiance of Old Hawaii.

Everyone enjoys walking or riding bikes in Puamana and cars drive slowly so there is little to disturb the tranquility. You can check the surf from our front deck and walk across the grass to the beach. The family friendly Dolphin Pool is just out the back. Every member of the family can be delightfully content here, the surfers, the swimmers, the book readers, the beach goers, the sand castle builders…all without a car, or even shoes!

Our one bedroom, 1 ½ + bathroom, has been recently refurbished and refurnished. The bedroom with ensuite bathroom (shower) has a sliding glass door to the back lanai and a secluded garden area enclosed by ferns and palms. The livingroom has a queen sized sofa bed, and opens via sliding glass door to the lanai and garden also. The main bathroom (shower over tub) opens from the connecting hallway, so privacy may be maintained for 2 couples sharing. The fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar looks out towards the ocean. Smooth pale bamboo floors, simple tropical style furniture, and full air conditioning provide for a comfortable welcoming atmosphere. We provide free wi-fi, plus fax/printer, DVD and cable TV, washer/dryer. Our front deck with ocean view and rear lanai provide for informal outside dining and BBQ area, all surrounded by flowering shrubs and tropical plants.

Manager info

About: My sister, Janet, and I share ownership of this home. Janet is an artist in Lahaina. She is living the dream, surfing and painting. Her Maui inspired landscapes are displayed to good effect in our home. Her boys have grown up to be great surfers and creatives and live in California. I have spent a lot of time on Maui over the years. I now live in Scotland and work as a photographer. These days I am also very busy with my young children, encouraging them into a variety of water sports, despite the Scottish climate! We visited Puamana every year to see my parents who spent much of their retirement there, and now to visit Auntie Janet and to enjoy some warm ocean water! Christine and Janet Spreiter

Why Puamana:
Our parents were original owners of this home, buying it in 1969, when they had the pick of Puamana. It’s low rise, low density charm was obvious even through the dust of construction. They chose our unit for its prime location, so close to the beach and the pool, with a view of the surf...perfect for us kids. They probably did not foresee the impact Puamana would have on the lives and imaginations of their children! We all fell in love with Maui, learned to surf and to enjoy the ocean. It has influenced us all in different ways, but has run a constant thread though our lives. Amazingly, while so much on Maui has changed, all that we remember about Puamana from over 40 years ago remains enchantingly the same today...only the trees are taller! We even have some of the same neighbors (well, like the trees… the same but older!). Our own children have loved learning to swim and surf on the beach opposite our house just as we did. Our parents have both passed on now, but we retain their commitment to Puamana and to providing a comfortable and relaxing home for our renters in this special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Puamana days are long and happy and filled with the simple pleasures of sand and surf. The sunsets are unrivalled! We enjoy the ocean, so every day starts with an early morning swim, watching the sun rise up over the West Maui Mountains and checking for whales out to sea. Then a paddle out for a morning of surfing Puamana’s glassy mellow waves with my kids (one of the absolute best things in life!). Back for coffee and breakfast of tropical fruit and croissants from the bakery, and then the children will probably want to go to play at the pool of back to the beach. Rest and read on our comfy swing bench after lunch, and then do it all again, or maybe paddle board along the coast a little, checking out the turtles who regularly pop their heads up in the surf break. After a day of easy fun filled beach activity, it’s an added pleasure to walk to the clubhouse for a book from the library, or a cool calming swim in the ocean pool. In Puamana it is easy to enjoy every minute of your precious vacation. Walking through the grounds past the fountain, playing frisbee under the huge spreading mango trees, collecting fallen plumeria flowers off the grass, and watching rainbows form over the West Maui Mountains…it is all a joy. The attractions of nearby Lahaina include restaurants, shops, a movie theatre, art galleries, cafes, museums, surf schools, rental shops for bikes, boards, etc and a picturesque yacht harbor where you will find charter boats for sailing, whale watching, snorkeling, diving and fishing. You can stroll to Lahaina from Puamana along a lovely palm fringed beach most of the way, emerging at the Harbor right in the central part of town. Beyond Lahaina, Maui boasts an abundance of outdoor adventures and amazing places to explore. You will be limited only by your imagination and energy…and your willingness to leave Puamana!
