About the property

Oceanfront Studio Condo + Queen bed, Queen Sofa Sleeper, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to Kaimana at Pohailani Maui! Enjoy amazing ocean views, sunsets, wildlife watching, and neighbor island views of Molokai and Lanai from this well provisioned condo located on West Maui.

We are located so close to the ocean you could throw a stone into the waves. So close, it is as if you are on a boat! Take advantage of Maui living on your private lanai (balcony), as well as spectacular ocean views extending down the coast. The first Humpback Whales are here now too!

The main living area has full ocean views and is very comfortable. Accented with tropical hardwoods, this studio has a comfortable Queen sized bed and Queen sized sofa sleeper.

A beautiful lanai allows you to expand the living area outdoors for full indoor/outdoor living in your private oasis. Dine in with the best ocean view.

Whale watch, gaze out over the sea, or just listen to the waves. Relax and enjoy paradise. Peace and tranquility define this cozy condo by the sea.

Kaimana is fully furnished and has everything you need to enjoy gracious island living, just bring your swimsuit and toothbrush! We have all the linens, towels, beach equipment (boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella) and kitchen gadgets you may want.

The condo is stocked with quality appointments. The sheets are 800 thread count, the towels are Ralph Lauren, and the bed is a plush Simmons BeautyRest. This condo is set up as your own home.

Complete with a full kitchen and bathroom with a tub and shower, Kaimana has all the touches of home for you to enjoy your stay after sightseeing around Maui.

Kahana is located North of historic Lahaina town, between Kaanapali and Kapalua resorts, and is a half mile from a grocery store, shops, and a farmers market. World class resorts, famous beaches, championship golf courses, and even ferry rides to Lanai and Molokai are within 15 minutes driving time or less. Pohailani sits on 8 acres of tropical landscaping. We invite you to enjoy our piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha

Our stay here was everything you promised!!! We felt blessed by the rainbows, the whale sightings, the sea turtles, and crabs who came so close we could watch them from the lanai!!!



The tours we took up the North coast and on around the island to the South most point provided magnificent photo ops yet got us back before dark.



What a joy this has been!!!

No need to look anywhere else-fabulous condo!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous condo! We absolutely loved your place, Melissa! You were so great to work with as I had many questions and you were very helpful. Your place felt like home, it was so cozy and comfortable with your decorations, wonderful bed and nice linens & towel. Your extras that you provide also came in handy, we used the boogy boards, the chairs, beach towels and coolers every day. We loved that we could make our meals in the kitchen, but also had several places nearby to eat at also. The location was great, you're able to get on the bus 1 block away that took us to Lahinia and Kaanapali Beach area and then came back to a nice and peaceful place where you can sit and hear the waves of the ocean all night long from your place. We have rented a lot of places on VRBO and loved yours, you obviously take very nice care of it and the top thing for us was that it was very clean!! We will definitely be back and book your place early so it's open. For anyone who is looking at renting this I would highly recommend! Mahalo!!

Memorable and Well-Appointed

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time here at Melissa's condo. The ocean is literally about 30 feet from the balcony!

The space is extremely well appointed, with quality furnishings and household accoutrements. Thick towels, nice sheets, sharp kitchen knives, great beach chairs -- everything one needs to be comfortable. Melissa was extremely pleasant and responsive and we would stay again in a heartbeat. The location is great and within easy walking distance to the beach.

I loved the condo-all the little extras included. Q tips in the bathroom, plenty of toilet paper and coffee! Nicely furnished and maintained. The pools need some work, but I understand that's coming.

You'll not do better...

  • 5 of 5

I have been remiss in not posting this review, as I cannot imagine a more enjoyable place to stay in Maui. The combination of location and amenities is extraordinary. A covered parking space is only a few steps and one flight of stairs from the condo door. The Kaimana at Pohailani Maui property has tennis courts, a basketball court and two swimming pools, but you'll find it difficult to tear yourself away from the views from the lanai. You are literally a stone's throw from the ocean. If that is not close enough, you can simply perch yourself on the seawall that fronts the property. A sand beach is less than a block away. Some may wish for a beach directly fronting the property, but I much prefer the quiet and privacy of the seawall directly on the shore. The property is beautifully maintained, and I must say that Melissa has performed a miracle of eclectic style in the condo itself. A beautiful, restful interior, with everything you might need to enjoy a perfect visit. I was particularly impressed by the "bible" of things to do and see on Maui. I lugged it everywhere, and found it to be inordinately useful. The unit was spotlessly clean and the amenities extensive, but you will spend the bulk of your time on the lanai. I would estimate we spent at least six hours a day during our stay on the lanai. The view is that spectacular, with Molokai and Lanai prominently featured. I fear I must have hundreds of sunset photos, as they are utterly spectacular, day in and day out. Melissa is a blessing, having been very accommodating and helpful at every turn before and during our stay. We will be returning to Maui often, and I will be returning here without question.

Great location with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Melissa's condo. We woke up to the soothing sound of the ocean and saw the beautiful sight of the moon in the early morning while in bed. We also enjoyed having dinners at the lanai while watching the sunset. It has all the the things needed and more. The coffee was great too.

Mahalo,

Relaxing condo with all necessary amenities at an affordable price point. Great for a couple. Gorgeous, oceanfront view and plenty of space. Clearly lots of thought and care from Melissa to make guests feel comfortable and welcome. Would highly recommend a stay!

Map

Kahana is located halfway between Kaanapali and Kapalua. There is nearby Golf courses in Kapalua and Kaanapali, including Kapalua Golf Academy. There are many hiking and walking trails in the area. There are several restaurants, banks, shops, and a small general store within walking distance of the condo, including Maui Brewing Company, Dollie's, and a Sushi restaurant. There are several great beaches in the neighborhood, and several great snorkeling spots in the area. Honolua Bay is just north, and Ironwoods horseback riding is a 5 minute drive. Lahaina Harbor and Kaanapali Beach are close by and have boats that go sailing, snorkeling, whale watching (in season), and have dinner cruises. So much more...A guide in the condo will give you more info.
