About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This has been our family's Hawaiian home for 48 years. Our unit is 50 yards from the ocean and next to the Clubhouse, its lanai and the ocean pool. In 2002 we completely rebuilt our the unit from the ground up and by installing granite and marble counter tops, quality furnishings and art. You can lay in the master bed and see the ocean and the island of Lanai. You can view the sunset from the 20' deck off the master bedroom and even see whales during whale season. Or you can sit and play cards at the table in the master bedroom suite and view the ocean. You go to sleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sound of mourning doves. The master bathroom features a double vanity and a walk-in shower with double heads and a seat. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, and the upper bedrooms have a view of the ocean. Each bedroom also has its own air conditioner and ceiling fan. There is also air conditioning in the living room/kitchen area and ceiling fans there. The lower lanai has a large patio table and chairs, 4 larger chairs, 2 charcoal barbeques and fans and lights..

Ocean murals decorate the kitchen and the stairway.

Our unit also has free Wi Fi and a Wi Fi printer so that you can print out boarding passes or directions.

Our Puamana home has HDTVs, a Blu-Ray player, a stereo with speakers built into the ceiling and an iPod docking station. You can listen to your iPod while in the living area, the kitchen, the patio or even the master bedroom suite.

Walk to the ocean pool across the lawn behind the Clubhouse, swim and lay in the sun while checking for whales swimming just off shore. Or you may sit on the Clubhouse lanai, read in the library or play the piano.

Puamana is as much a state of mind as it is a place to stay.

About Dave Medina

Our family purchased our home at Puamana in 1968. It has been a large part of our family ever since. We live most of the time in California. We have two children.

Dave Medina purchased this condo in 1968

Why Dave Medina chose West Maui

Our family purchased a home in Puamana because of its location, its weather and its history. Puamana is in an ideal location. It has a view of gorgeous sunsets. Unlike other areas of Maui, it is not windy and gets less rain. Puamana is at the south end of Lahaina and an easy walk into town. Puamana also has beautiful grounds with many flowering tropical plants and trees.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is relaxing and also beautifully decorated. Hawaiian art surrounds you. The master bedroom suite has individual reading lights for each side of the bed, as well as a table where you can sit and read or play cards while watching the ocean. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated and has its own private bath. The full wall mural along the stairway features Nemo and his friends. The mural in the kitchen adds a whimsical touch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"An absolutely superb Maui home away from home! Loved the visits from the resident red head feline, who we named 'Ono'. Whe really made our visit to Puamana special. Great suggestions for dining in the house binder. Add 'Smokehouse BBQ' to the suggestions for great ribs! We'll be back . . ."

Absolutely loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 16 divided into 3 house in the puamana community, and it was the best option we could've decided on as a collective group.! Our house was probably the best out of all 3 (they were all great). But the way it's decorated, being right off the ocean, with the views couldn't have been any better.! We had no problems and we're in a good location being right next to the clubhouse and the one of a kind pool off the ocean edge.! Walkin distance to a beautiful beach right inside the community. 5 minute drive to front street. Highly reccomend booking your stay here if you're looking for more than a resort.! Thank you so much again for the hospitality of your house letting us make our dreams come true of having a successful family trip.!

Perfect Location and Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Puamana!!! The location is perfect, you are close to many conveniences. The gated community was very relaxing and quiet. The townhouse had a view of the ocean, which was absolutely wonderful. The townhouse was very well maintained and had everything you would need. It was perfect for our family vacation. I would definitely recommend this townhouse to all my friends and family. Thank you to the owners for helping to make our family vacation perfect......

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time staying in this home and we will return time and time again! The house is wonderfully maintained with everything you could possibly need. Beds are super comfy, great showers, all very clean and modern. We love the ocean view pool just steps away, watching sunsets just outside the door or from the balcony and the proximity to the beach and town (it's a quick, one mile walk). If you like surfing or SUP, you need not look further. This is where the locals like to do both. Do yourself, your friends and your family a favor and stay here!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house, right on the water with a great view and all amenities. Altho the beach is not a swimming beach, they have an ocean pool right over the water which is clean and lovely. The location is perfect; we could walk into the main part of Lahaina (but it's harder at nite on the part without a sidewalk). Perfect for 6 people. Everything you need in the kitchen. Great service, and have an app that puts all the info you need in one place. Definitely recommend it!

Perfect Codo

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo just steps from the ocean front. The view of the full moon set from the upstairs balcony are breath taking. I believe the kitchen is better equipped than my own. We brought my sister and brother-in-law with us for their 50th anniversary and they were trilled. Very convenient to Lahaina, but not quite walking distance for senior citizens.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Patricia. We are glad that your family and you enjoyed our Maui home. One of the things that we love about our unit is the upper lanai, where you can view the mountains and the ocean, sunsets and the moon and stars. Congratulations to your sister and brother-in-law on their 50th anniversary. That is wonderful.
