About the property

Townhome, King bedroom plus loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This newly remodeled, beautiful Town Home is located on 30 acres of skillfully maintained grounds, surrounded by banyans, banana trees, Plumeria and Hibiscus, this cozy town home is only 50 yards from the ocean. Within this gated community just south of Lahaina town, you can stroll the grounds, swim in one of the three pools (one of which is ocean-side), play tennis, walk into Lahaina town to shop or enjoy one of the many wonderful restaurants, and still enjoy the quiet and privacy of this gated community when you return.

Our well maintained town home is ideal for families but also perfect for the romantic get away.

The large Master Bedroom has a king size bed, while the loft sleeps 3-4 in the two twins and queen bed. The loft is best suited for children over 4 years and adults who don't mind climbing the steep stairway at night! Please see photos and video of the loft and stairway up to the loft. Contact Dave or Cheryl for more information.

Fully air-conditioned, with three individual units in the master, living room and loft, the house has all of the comforts of home. Once you have stayed in Puamana you will never want to return to the high rise resort model with parking garages and elevators.

You will have parking near the unit in any uncovered spot. One car per visit is allowed please.

After a day of whale watching, shopping, snorkeling, hiking, biking, or sailing, return to Puamana to watch the sunset from the lanai of the historic Plantation Clubhouse or Ocean Pool. The Clubhouse also offers amenities such as a reading parlor, lending library, and piano.

Children enjoy the Dolphin pool and play area, or the Mountain pool, adults choose the only Ocean Side Pool on Maui! Children are welcome at the Ocean Pool but it is considered a "Quiet Pool" for reading, napping and relaxation or simply gazing at the waves.

"Pools" surfing area right off of the Ocean Pool is considered one of the best surfing spots in the area in summer. It is for seasoned surfers. Puamana Beach is great for beginning surfers, swimming or boogie boarding.The beach also provides almost a mile of walking or collecting. Please note that at times the sand turns to pebbles with the tides. This is an unpredictable phenomena. We provide a list of family friendly beaches all over the island. One of the best is 5 minutes south.

We provide four tennis rackets and balls for use at the Homeowners court, 50 yards away.

Bring your laptop if you must, we provide wireless internet with no additional charge. Wireless printer available in the house. We also provide two beach cruiser bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, an array of snorkel equipment and beach towels for guest use.

What more could you ask? Feel free to call or email with any questions or information or to check availability. You will not be disappointed when you arrive in Puamana whether you came for the relaxation or the many activities Maui offers!

Puamana is truly the hidden treasure of Maui. It literally sits on the spot where the rain and wind end and the sun begins!

About Dave and Cheryl Houston

We traveled as tourists for many year to Hawaii, from our home in Half Moon Bay, CA. After staying in a variety of resorts all around Maui we discovered Puamana and never looked back. We purchased our town home so we could enjoy Lahaina for part of the year as our family of 4 enjoys scuba, surfing, tennis, biking and 'just going to the beach'. We love to share this hidden treasure with friends and family as well as with the guests who come from near and far and enjoy the beauty of the area as much as we do.

Dave and Cheryl Houston purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Dave and Cheryl Houston chose Lahaina

The low rise, quiet beauty of Puamana made us feel so at home right away. From the West side and Lahaina, we can easily visit all of the other destinations of the island. We thought the wind and rain free climate on the West side was ideal. Our neighbors in the complex are great, as are the visitors we meet each time we come.

We feel in love with Puamana, as most do.

What makes this townhome unique

The Ocean Pool is truly unique, the only one on the island of its kind. Watching the surfers off the pool can be an all day activity.

The landscaping inside Puamana is naturally breathtaking all year long.

Sunsets from the Clubhouse Lanai are the best you will find anywhere, and a short walk from your front door. We love being so close to Lahaina town, a short walk or bike ride. The sounds of the birds, the waves and the sweet smells are everywhere. We could go on, but just watch the video or the virtual tour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave and Cheryl,

Words seem quite inadequate to describe our delightful time at 30-1 in Puamana.

The sounds, smells and sights all called us to sit, relax and drink in the peace!

The sunsets, rainbows, flowers and water are still with me. Larry likened your place to paradise and made fast friends with the birds.

Our best,

Mary Helen and Larry.

Puamana Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the good fortune to enjoy a second visit to 30-1. The townhome addresses all your vacation needs and more. The entire home is beautifully decorated in a tropical theme with comfortable furnishings and linens throughout. The kitchen is lovely and stocked with everything you will need to cook your own meals or simply blend your favorite boat drink! The lanai is ringed by tropical trees and flowers, creating a welcome respite from the sun and quiet place to relax. The unit is equipped with everything from beach chairs, umbrellas, straw mats, coolers, tennis racquets and balls; DVD’s, games and even bicycles! Most importantly, the owners are wonderful hosts and show every kindness in sharing their knowledge and piece of paradise with prospective vacationers. I hope the future will provide us with an opportunity to visit 30-1 for a third time!

We do hope you will return to 30-1 another day and continue to explore the island and enjoy the quiet beauty of Puamana. Warm Aloha and Mahalo! Dave and Cheryl

Very cozy residence

  • 5 of 5

There were no surprises with this rental. This residence was very tidy and came with a multitude of amenities to make our stay comfortable. The shops and restaurants of Lahaina was a short 20 minute walk and very fun to explore. The spiral staircase to the upper loft is a little small, but not too hard to negotiate. There is a very serene back patio to enjoy with the wonderful Maui weather. I would highly recommend this location and plan on staying here again myself.

Maui offers unlimited and varied activities. Information in the house will guide you to hikes to hidden waterfalls, the Bamboo Forests and beaches of Hana, biking and hiking the Haleakala Crater, (go for the sunrise). Watch the Cliff Divers at Black Rock, see thousands of colorful fish from Honolua Bay or many other local snorkel spots, visit the lavender farm Upcountry or the charming little town of Paia for some wonderful arts and crafts and cuisine. Of course Maui is a golfers dream, visit the World class courses, but don't miss the art galleries and unique restaurants. Information on restaurants and activities available upon request. Regardless of your interest, you will want to return to the aloha of Maui, and Puamana in particular!
