About the property

UPGRADED 2 Bedroom Private Bungalow in Ocean Front Property!


After a major renovation just a few months ago it's ready for all our guests to enjoy. A lot of hard word and we are very proud of the Zen, chic styling and comfort....

Zen is a state of being that produces serenity, calmness, and an overall state of satisfaction. Living this way will keep you balanced, happy, and able to enjoy the little things in life. The Zen Bungalow takes advantage of the nature around it to create this kind of experience. Maui is a magical place full of grandeur and natural beauty that compels you to go outside and explore. When done with the active days truly relax each night and enjoy the peace.

The bungalow is FULLY REMODELED & UPDATED. It has 2 bedrooms and is located in an OCEAN FRONT property in Kahana. Many times of the year you can hear the surf crashing as you sleep or hang out on the lanai.


There are AMAZING beaches all over West Maui. It's really hard not to find one! Luckily we have 2 beaches within a 3-5 minute walk from the bungalow. Our favorite just north of us is pictured here as well as Kahana beach just to the south. Additionally there are over a dozen great beach areas you can explore within a 5-10 minute drive.


People come to West Maui to relax and experience the amazing nature. Right off our seawall and the beaches nearby you will find "Honu" the giant green sea turtles. From early winter to late spring you will find the largest concentration of migrating humpback whales in the world. From our seawall you can see them offshore jumping high and splashing in the water. Additionally there are beautiful fish, manta rays, and many other beautiful sea creatures.


The West Maui Channel runs right in front of our property with the backdrop being the islands of Lanai (to the south) and Molokai (just to the north). The views from the seawall of these islands are incredible. You can actually take day trips to either island from Lahaina (10-15 minutes) by boat.


West Maui is known for their INCREDIBLE sunsets. Much of the year the sun sets directly between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. These sunsets rival any place on the planet and are meant to be enjoyed from our seawall area with Mai Thai's, wine, champagne, etc. It a truly spectacular experience that we encourage you do do each night if possible. If you are lucky you may even get to see a rare "green flash" as the sun dips beneath the horizon.


One of the unique things about our bungalow is that it's in a LOW DENSITY complex spread over 9 acres! You won't feel crowded or that people are all around you like in the typical Maui high-rise resorts. The place really feels more like a house with privacy and solitude. It is located in the Pohailani property which offers 2 pools, BBQ's, tennis, and lots of grass and local foliage including mango trees and apple bananas. It's really a gorgeous place! It is an OCEANFRONT complex that has great viewing areas for sunsets, whale watching, and ocean access. The unit has just been COMPLETELY remodeled and has been given a Zen/modern feel with bamboo hardwood floors, new stainless appliances, great lighting, new quartz counters, new bamboo cabinets, new wine refrigerator, beautiful glass tile shower, in-unit laundry, and a fully equipped kitchen with a gourmet range hood. We have designed it to have an OPEN/MODERN floor plan so it's truly indoor/outdoor living. One of the bedrooms brings in the outside with a custom loft-like open design where you can watch the stars from your bed at night and feel the breeze through the window. The beds are set up for comfort in mind with the 5 Star rated Sealy Copelin TI, Euro Pillowtop mattress and wonderful linens. We also can arrange a nice rollaway bed (if needed). Since the unit is on the bottom floor the lanai flows out directly into the lush open 1 ACRE grass area, tropical plantings, and is steps from the pool. These buildings are set up as bungalow style with only 2 units per building with lots of grass and plantings between them. It's incredibly private and serene.


We have a custom built redwood table that is designed like a dining table rather than just a patio table (for up to 6). Here you will find fun, romantic, family gatherings where you can enjoy your meals and drinks (Mai Tai's highly recommended) any time of day. From the table you can see the stars, watch the kids playing on the grass, and often here the crash of the waves against the sea wall.


If you are looking to have the technological comforts we have a 55' Led 1080 HDTV that is equipped with a blue-tooth soundbar that you can play your iPhone/iPad directly into wirelessly. We also have high-speed wireless internet, and a Blu-Ray player with a built in Netflix account where you can view movies and other programming for free.


The bungalow is located about 1/2 way between Kaanapali (2 miles away) and Kapalua (2 miles away) and is minutes from Lahaina and all the attractions and outdoor activities of West Maui. Surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, golf, and some of the best beaches on Maui are here. This is truly one of the best locations in West Maui!


We believe in trying to be eco-friendly and thus use a local cleaning company to service our property between uses. You can be sure that it will be clean, natural, and as hypo-allergenic as possible upon your arrival.


Generally you can count on the most pleasant weather on the whole island in West Maui. Nice trade winds and temperatures that average about 72F in winter/fall and 78-85F in spring/summer during the day. The bungalow has multiple ceiling fans and a new A/C wall unit to help on the warmer days. Normally the nights cool down nicely and are spectacular.


If you are looking for the privacy and serenity of a private home without the huge price tag...this is the place for you! Inquire about long-term rental discounts.

Frederick & Brooke Remick-Owners purchased this condo in 2013

Why Frederick & Brooke Remick-Owners chose World

We traveled to Maui for our 1st anniversary and stayed just a 1/2 a mile from our new place. As we traveled all over the island we came to realize that this stretch of West Maui was the nicest on the island. Or at least, we think so :) We LOVED the open space on the property. Room to breath and truly relax.

What makes this condo unique

Because this property is on the bottom floor and is one level, it's great for families, elderly, folks with equipment (boards, gear, etc), and kids who can play in the grass right off the lanai.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in a quiet area, surrounded by tropical greenery. Perfect location — walking distance or a short drive to almost all the activities our family enjoys. Clean, well set up, easy! Favorite part of our day was enjoying our coffee early in the am on the lanai listening to all the birds. The pool was great for evening swims after long beach days. Our family of four was able to snorkel and see turtles and amazing fish, surf, body surf, zip line, cliff jump, swim in mountain water pools, see the sunrise from on top of the volcano, drive the road to Hana...and always come back to relax in the quiet condo. Having a washer and dryer was great! Owners very responsive to any questions we had. Highly recommend for your family!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The Zen Bungalow is located in a perfect spot in Lahaina. It's walking distance to the beach, close to restaurants and attractions but tucked away with lots of plants and greenery that it feels miles away from the hustle and bustle. The pool is right outside the lanai which was lovely. Easy parking. Beds were very comfortable, although squeaky. Cleanliness of the place was ok, if you look around it seemed clean but when I slid a backpack under the bed for storage, I pulled it out covered in a thick layer of dust. It's the little things that needed attention like the base boards. The condo is a little dark, lacks natural light. While it was nice to have separate bathroom and beach towels, they were dingy. The larger bedroom is open to the living room with only a partial divider like a studio, this was not clear in the photos. Would have been a little awkward with a second couple, if they hadn't canceled last minute. Owner was very responsive and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are so glad that you had a great time. We will forward this to our cleaning manager and make sure the area below the bed is swept out. There is a breeze there most of the time so I am am sure it pushes dust under there. The description of the bungalow indicates that one bedroom is an open loft style to take advantage of the view outside and the breezes while one is closed off and darker for those that prefer to sleep like that.

Great clean unit

We had a great time. Kids loved the pool and the fact that we could just walk out into the grass. Short walk to the beach.

Car: recommended

The area of Kahana is centrally located half way between the resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua on Maui's BEAUTIFUL westside. The area is a perfect blend of resort amenities along with the local comfort and flavor. The weather is some of the nicest on the island as there are consistent trade winds that don't let things get too hot. With the world class resorts of Kapalua and Kaanapali only a few minutes away it's really hard to beat! The beaches tend to be less crowded in this area and the snorkeling is amazing. Lot's of sea turtles, fish, and coral to be found. The area also boasts access to great restaurants, bars, and shopping. If you're looking for localized flavor with access to all the world class amenities close by...this is the place for you!!!
