We absolutely loved our stay in Pohailani 102! It was so nice to sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves, wake up and have coffee on the lanai, watch the turtles swim and eat below. was a great size space for the two of us. we'd stay with them again! ~ SAMUEL R.

Why Chase N Rainbows-Property Manager chose Lahaina

You can't get any closer to the ocean than this! Consistently voted the #1 island in the world, Maui has endless activities for vacationers, from fabulous beaches to fantastic dining and nightlife. Located on the northwest side of the island, Lahaina is a tropical paradise blending a rich history with modern Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Come see all that Maui has to offer! A sunset cruise around the island makes for a perfect romantic evening. If you’re curious about what goes on under the waves, snorkeling tours are a great way to view the incredible variety of life that lives under the surface of the ocean. If you don’t want to get wet, there's even a submarine that can take you into the deeps while you view its mysteries from the comfort of a climate controlled cabin. Helicopter tours are an excellent way to take in views of the whole island, including incredible waterfalls, sea cliffs and forests you would be hard pressed to view on foot. For those looking for a little more excitement, you can take an ATV tour or Zipline adventure, drive the road to beautiful Hana or watch the sunrise from Haleakala. Enjoy Maui's fabulous luaus, restaurants, shops, art galleries and spas! You’ll see such diversity from the mountains to the sea on our beautiful island. Check out The Snorkel Store for activities and beach equipment rentals.

just as beautiful as in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

the apartment is indeed as close to the ocean as shown in the pictures. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the wall was incredible. The daily visit of that sea turtle family was an extra treat.

Excellent Maui Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent value for cost - cozy but had everything we needed. The location was extremely convenient to access beaches, restaurants and sightseeing activities. The lanai actually was only 15 feet from the ocean - perfect for sipping on a gin and tonic every evening at sunset. Chase ‘n Rainbows as a property management company was amazingly responsive to all our requests (we reported the microwave wasn’t working when we arrived and they replaced it within hours). The complementary maid service in the middle of our stay was a pleasant bonus. We would definitely recommend this condo as well as this property management company.

The perfect place in paridise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here for our wedding, honeymoon and babymoon! The place was clean and decorated in a very cute beach theme. I was very grateful that the sheets and towels didn't smell of chemicals at all. We loved falling asleep to the waves crashing outside of our place and waking in the mornings to watch the sea turtles feed near the rocks.

Mahalo for our first visit to Maui~

  • 5 of 5


It was our first visit to Maui. From the first second we were happy about this place to stay. The oceanfront view is amazing! The room has everything you need, we liked very much all the pictures and little accessories of the sea! We enjoyed this a lot!! This is probably a place to come back anytime…

On and someday we saw the sea turtles swimming in front of the wall. Very cool :)

Thank you very much to make this place a home far away from our home…
