Overview

About the property

UPGRADED 2 Bedroom Bungalow in Ocean Front Property!

INTRODUCING THE "ZEN BUNGALOW"

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.

BEACHES

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. There is also another beach (very nice as well) just to the south. Additionally there are over a dozen great beach areas you can explore within a 5-10 minute drive.

BUNGALOW AMENITIES AND THE PROPERTY

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.

OUTDOOR DINING

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.

TECHNICAL COMFORTS

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.

IDEAL LOCATION

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!

GREEN-ECO FRIENDLY

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.

WEATHER

Generally you can count on the most pleasant weather on the whole island in West Maui. Nice trade winds and temperatures that average about 70F in winter/fall and 78-80F 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.

BEST VALUE ON WEST MAUI

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 West Maui

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.

Perfect location! Very relaxing comfortable atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults with plenty of room. Home had everything we needed. We will for sure return to this very Tranquil Bungalo. This was our 11th trip to Hawaii and the Kahana area is now our favorite. The property grounds are beautiful. Really gives you a Hawaiian environment This bunglo is truly located in the best spot. Quiet and opens to a private garden common area and is very close to the pool. The owners are extremely accommodating and very responsive. The only thing we would have changed would be to STAY LONGER. Oct 18 2017 JPTC

Excellent Value and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here! Our three kiddos had a blast playing in the large grassy area that the condo opens up to. When we were not exploring the island, we enjoyed the large swimming pool that was right out the back door. The location was close to everything that we needed, and the unit was well stocked with everything that we needed to prepare meals.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this bungalow was great. Two bedroom with a rollout bed. Full kitchen and bath. All the amenities and supplies you could ask for! This place had it all. We didn't need to rent anything-beach umbrella, beach mat, toys for kids, boogie boards, beach chairs-you name it, it was provided! If you are traveling with young children, it has a stroller, high chair and pack-n-play bed. Two fans. Was very clean and air conditioner worked well. Was very easy to find, even in the dark and we were not familiar with the area. Local beaches nearby and grocery to stock up on staples. Only thing was the upstairs neighbors were early risers and you could hear them walking, but we were also up shortly after to get going for the day. Still wouldn't hinder us staying here in the future. Great place that is the total package!

Calm yet close to beaches and shops

  • 5 of 5

the beautiful gardens in from of the condo give the impression seclusion and privacy with no other residences overlooking you when you enjoy your meals outside. The condo was full equipped and we did not want for anything when preparing our meals. The pool is literally a 10M walk from the back door which was great for the children. The location is excellent, beaches within walking distance and enough shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. The owners are extremely responsive and helpful when answering our queries. Thoroughly recommended !

Perfect for our visit

  • 5 of 5

I chose this place because it was close to where the party for the wedding we were attending was staying. We were close to everywhere we needed to get to and Frederick was very quick in responding whenever we needed anything. The space is clean and had everything we needed. Quick note, it gets really sunny when the sun rises so if you like sleeping in, just bring an eye mask :) my friend and I enjoyed our stay and we hope to come back someday.

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!!!
