About the property

Private and shady lanai, 70 steps to the beach!

Hawaii Tax ID # W 81042756-0

Direct oceanview from the second floor and nice partial views from the ground floor and lanai. Very shady and private lanai 15 feet from the Dolphin (family) pool. 70 steps to the main Puamana beach access for surfing, snorkeling and swimming.

3 Bedroom/2 bath oceanview comfortably sleeps 6, but we will allow up to 8 in some circumstances. The extensively remodeled master and bath on the lower floor are completely private. The two bedrooms on the upper floor are beautifully designed with an open floor plan and low, open-beam ceiling. Please be aware that the upstairs rooms are open in the front and do not have doors. This is a perfect set-up for children and extended families, and the view from the second floor is fantastic. We have a queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

Brand new (12/17) 55 inch curved 4K Samsung TV with sound bar in the living room. All bedrooms have TV with cable.

The two upstairs bedrooms have a large AC unit, and the master bedroom has one as well. There is also a new, 10,000 BTU AC in the downstairs living room and kitchen area. Make sure that the unit you rent has adequate air conditioning, as Lahaina can be extremely hot.

When available, pick bananas right from your lanai for breakfast! Your privacy is protected by Puamana's best banana grove, with delicious fresh bananas available much of the year.

When vacationing with kids, you don't want to have to walk for 10 minutes with all your stuff to the pool. Our unit is literally pool side, only steps away.

There are only two approved ocean access points to the fantastic, uncrowded Puamana coastline. When you stay in our unit, you are literally 70 steps away from having your feet in the water.

This was our family home for many years, and it was set up with separation of space in mind. You can enjoy a glass of wine and watch whales from the upper lanai while your kids play games or watch TV in the downstairs living area!

There is also a nice sitting area/library upstairs which offers the same outstanding ocean views as the upper lanai but allow you to sit in air conditioned comfort while you take in the stunning panorama.

We offer one of the largest and most private lower lanais in Puamana, with room for a luxurious patio seating area and outside dining out of the hot sun.

We think you will find everything you need for a great vacation in Maui, including:

- 4 televisions

- Updated kitchen with all amenities

- Free high speed internet

- Printer for business needs or boarding passes

- Golf clubs (his and hers)

- Tennis rackets

- Ukulele and song/chord books

- Outdoor bluetooth speaker

- Great original Hawaiian art

- Beach chairs

- New appliances

- New Weber BBQ on the front lanai right next to the kitchen

Please let us know if you have any questions we can answer about our Maui home. We have lived in Maui for 10+ years and would be able to answer any questions you might have about Puamana or Maui in general. We look forward to seeing you in paradise! You can email us directly for questions or reservations via the VRBO link. We will personally take care of your reservation with aloha.

Again, our best to you for a fantastic Maui vacation!

Puamana is a gated community that is located near the heart of the historic old whaling town of Lahaina in sunny West Maui, Hawaii.

In all of Hawaii there is nothing comparable to the beauty of Puamana. Our splendid townhomes are located on 30 acres of lush botanical gardens, large expanses of flourishing lawns and along side nearly a mile of beautiful oceanfront with breathtaking views of the ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.

Wonderful perfect place to enjoy a week on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Doug and Cathy were such accommodating hosts and we truly loved our week here. We spent a lot of time at the beautiful ocean pool, the beach right in front of the house on the property, long walks, enjoyed the brilliant night sky filled with stars and loved being able to get to Lahaina so easily. Our 3 teenagers loved it too! Great for families. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. We will be back! Puamana is a great community too - be sure to check out the library in the gorgeous clubhouse.

Good location, had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Maui at Doug and Cathy's house. We were (a long) walking distance from Lahaina, but not unpleasant. The house had everything we needed including little extra things like washing detergent, coffee filters and garbage bags. Just means less stuff for us to buy in Maui, and reduces waste! I do the same thing with my own rental property.

Puamana is beautiful, although had some odd rules (e.g. "No Marco Polo" posted on the pool adjacent to the house: we played the same game with alternate names instead. ;) )

The beds all slept well, and although the unit was adjacent to the busy road, we did not notice the road noise with the front door closed. It was nice to have either ceiling or floor fans for each bed.

Staff at the clubhouse were very nice and had a lot of information about the history of the area.

Convenient location to Kaanapali for conferences without having to stay in the soulless hotel chains, and easy driving distance to a number of restaurants in the area.

Renting a bike would've been perfect but we were beaching it or hiking so many days we didn't have time to do this.

Would definitely rent again from this renter. Mahalo!

Only downside, some kitchen bugs, but not unexpected with seaside and tropical location, also not any different from other units from which I have rented in the past decade in Maui.

The Puamana complex was everything we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, Doug and Cathy's unit was having it's roof reshingled as we arrived. We decided

that this would be too much of a distraction during our vacation. Our relocation within the complex met our needs, perfectly, Mahalo!!! We loved the decor and layout of their unit, however, the only comment I would make was that the in-window air conditioning unit upstairs

was dreadfully loud. One of the highlights, of our vacation there was the ocean pool, it was

Amazing!!! We would not hesitate recommending this private resort. P.S. Charcoal BBQ have to go

Nice stay in Lahaina ❤️

We had a lovely stay in Lahaina, the town is very cosy and great atmosphere. The Residence is really nice and quiet with two pools, tennis, and a lovely private beach. The appartmwnt has a great kitchen and kids enjoyed their lovely rooms, they also loved to play at the shortbreak at the beach...

the condo filled our every need. The kitchen was very well supplied with all the equipment for cooking. We even picked a fresh banana for breakfast. Lots of outside and inside sitting and eating areas. All spotlessly clean.The beds were extremely comfortable. Nice to have a TV in every room

I loved the decor. Great prints and art pieces that made it fun to stay there.

The location is excellant. Private and beautiful on the beach but close to shopping areas, tourist attractions and activities .

I would definitely recommend this condo. It will be first on my list for the next trip.
