About the property

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

This newly remodeled, beautiful Town Home, 30-1, 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.

Lovely Stay in Beautiful Puamana!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at Dave and Cheryl's Puamana place multiple times and I can't wait to go back! The place is fully stocked with anything you need-all kitchen equipment you can think of, speaker, towels, umbrella, beach chairs, even a wavestorm surfboard! The back patio is my favorite spot to have a cup of coffee in the morning! So peaceful and beautiful-it feels like you are in a jungle. And of course, just a few steps away from the beautiful ocean and ocean pool-where I like to spend most of my vacation.

beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Cheryl's townhouse was the perfect spot for us. The grounds of Puamana are amazing, and the proximity to Lahaina was wonderful. My husband and I rode the included bikes into town almost every day, and the chairs, snorkel gear and boogie boards were a welcome bonus. We were celebrating both our and my parents' anniversaries, and our save a bit of trouble with the weather at the end of the stay, which no one could predict or control, we had an amazing and beautiful vacation on Maui!

Wonderful Hawaii Experience

  • 5 of 5

We love this town home in Puamana. It feels like home. It's a lovely, quiet location, just a short walk to the beach and the oceanside pool. The property has everything we need and the owners are available and attentive.

We recommend it to everyone we know. The owners recommended restaurants, golf courses, upcountry outings, and even a trip to Lanai. We had a great time and will be sure to use the same property when we return.

Wonderful stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

From our initial booking Dave and Cheryl were great to work with. They were on top of communication the days leading up to our stay.

30-1 is an incredible place! Our family of 4 enjoyed the accommodations. We spent the mornings in the comfortable living room watching the World Cup! Our two girls appreciated the loft space. The kitchen has everything you need. The master bedroom is large and the bed is comfy.

The grounds of Puamana are absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the sandy beach to the south of the ocean pool. Watching the surfers from the ocean pool was also a hit.

The “gear” that is provided was also appreciated! We used the bikes, boogie boards and beach chairs every day during our stay.

We look forward to our next Maui trip and hope to stay at 30-1 when we return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay! We sincerely appreciate it. We look forward to your return and will be sure to have fresh boogie boards and beach chairs available. We can't express how pleased we are that your family had such a good time and will have wonderful memories of Maui! Warm Aloha, Dave and Cheryl

Exceptional recommendation for Puamana 30-1!! Welcoming, clean, secure, amenities, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My son surprised me with a trip to Hawaii for my 50th birthday, and Puamana 30-1 exceeded all expectations!

This was our first experience with VRBO and we found the process extremely easy and Dave & Cheryl were amazing! with response times and helpful information.

30-1 was as pictured, beautifully decorated, had a very welcoming feel, we felt very much at home during our week long stay. Our party was 4 adults and we had more than ample room. Having 2 bathrooms and on property laundry facilities was a plus. The loft was surprisingly roomy with a queen and 2 twins, had it's own air conditioner, fan, and TV. The spiral stairs are as pictured and a little steep, but none of us had any issues maneuvering them. My grandson would have loved them and the skylight! The master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed, it's own air conditioner & ceiling fan, TV, space to unpack, iron/board, and additional dual within reach reading lights mounted each side of bed which was very helpful navigating an unfamiliar area in the middle of the night. There was a separate exit to the lanai from master which is where I had my coffee every morning. The beautiful lanai...surrounded in foliage and a banana tree, private, perfect and relaxing.The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils, spices, oil, coffee pot, blender, toaster, even coffee filters and ziplocs! All the items you go to grab at home that you usually dont find in a rental, it's there. I found it extremely helpful that alot of things were labeled with how to use them. Living area has another air conditioner and ceiling fan, TV, wi-fi, printer, games, exit to lanai...Dave and Cheryl thought of everything! They have tennis equip, 2 bikes, knee boards, beach umbrella, chairs and a small cooler for beach trips. We frequently made it to the adult pool with ocean waves and the most amazing sunsets! The Puamana grounds/common areas were immaculate. Gated community felt safe. Walking distance (6-8? blocks) to Lahaina, shopping, restaurants, and the banyan tree, what a spectacular sight!

I cant say enough good things about this place, you won't go wrong staying in Puamana 30-1!

Cheryl & Dave were more than accommodating and helpful, timely answering all inquiries, emailing activities, reputable tours, local must see's, preferred beaches, etc. There was even a gift upon our arrival for my birthday. So thoughtful of perfect strangers. My first trip to Hawaii, fell in love with Maui and Puamana.

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!
