Aloha & E komo Mai!
This private two-story home - bright, clean, and inviting in an island style - sleeps eight and seats even more for meals. Walk through the front door, and step onto the open lower level of your vacation home. Like a gentle ocean wave, your calm gaze moves through the kitchen, into the living room, and right outside onto the lanai. Your cell phone and laptop link swiftly to the home's solid wifi connection. You begin to breathe more deeply. Everything is in its place, and your relaxation time has begun.
Up the single flight of stairs, you'll discover three gorgeous bedrooms and two full baths with showers. Each offers comfortable furnishings, quiet lighting, tasteful beach-chic decor and - most importantly on Maui - ceiling fans and air conditioning!
The master bedroom, open to the tradewinds, showcases a California King size bed. This room comes complete with full length mirrors, closet space, and a large dresser, as well as an en suite bathroom with a glass-walled shower, and a single vanity with a large countertop.
Bedroom two, bright and airy, offers a beautiful queen size bed, mirrored closets, and a pair of dressers with plenty of space. Bedroom three is perfect for either the kids or Ozzie and Harriet. (You guessed it! This room has two twin beds.) If you prefer, these beds can be brought together to create one full size sleeping area. This room also has a dresser and mirrored closet.
The shared hallway bathroom treats you to a refreshing spa-like shower, where there is space enough for two adults, and the tiling is reminiscent of river rock. Separate light switches can be used to highlight either the shower, or the single basin sink and counter space. A stacked washer and dryer sit just across the hall, ensconced within a closet.
This peaceful and quiet Hawaiian hale is tucked into the back of the Puamana Community. The closeness of the surrounding acreage ensures your proximity to the grounds' amenities: three pools, a play structure, a clubhouse, and a tennis court. Great snorkeling and swimming spots are right offshore, and plenty of fluffy beach towels are waiting for you in the hallway closet.
One of the more special and hidden aspects of this Puamana home is its pair of caretakers. Kevin and Kelly will make sure you're settled in when you arrive, and they'll see to it that you have everything you need throughout your island stay. The home comes equipped with all the basic (and beach!) supplies the two locals could think of, but you and your family may need something more specific. It is reassuring to know that Kelly and Kevin - kind, knowledgeable, and responsive - are just a quick text away.
You can park one car in your driveway, and one nearby in any uncovered parking space. rent bicycles nearby to ride into town any time you wish. Lahaina is just a few miles away. This attractive hot spot offers delicious food, live entertainment, incredible shopping, and a movie theater. All types of boat tours leave from the harbor, too!
When you return home to relax, this place is perfect. The kids can race right up the stairs to wash off the salt water and beach sand, and everyone can settle on the couch, at the large dining room table, and in the chairs on the lanai. There is plenty of space on the floors for little ones to play. Older kids will love running around on the lawn while the rest of you cook, chat, and sip some made-on-Maui pineapple wine.
When you are ready to cook, the fully-equipped kitchen and the outdoor gas grill are all set for you! This kitchen was just beautifully renovated. You'll find brand new, stainless steel appliances alongside the large marble counter top that divides the cooking area from the living room. Inside the honey-colored cupboards, you'll find everything from stemware to plastic cups and gravy boats to cereal bowls.
On vacation, you want plenty of space for plenty of food, right? Well, that requirement is covered with a side-by-side refrigerator, and a pantry with rolling drawers. An ultra-modern microwave hangs above the black ceramic stove, gazing at its own reflection. (Although the microwave is indeed special, we hope it doesn't turn into a flower like conceited Narcissus in the Greek myth. If that does happen, just call Kevin. He'll know what to do!)
In addition to fun family meals, you can easily host a party or an extra-special holiday here. Spatulas, whisks, mixers, and even a turkey pan await your signature dishes! And to give you even more relaxation time, a dishwasher - a convenience not always present in Hawaiian hales - sits at the ready.
The living room couch is just perfect for Hawaiian cat naps on lazy island afternoons. If you feel like taking in a movie at home, or checking up on the rest of the world, you'll have 24 hour access to a giant flat screen television with DVR, and a 3D Blu-ray player with a stereo! To hearken back to simpler times, sit at the writing desk to compose stories of your travels in letters, to send friends and family back home. No matter what you choose to do, the room's ceiling fans, air conditioning, and lovely recessed lighting (yes, it can be dimmed!) will ensure that you are cool and comfortable.
The lanai outside - just a single step from the living room's back door - is almost completely screened in with tropical foliage like birds of paradise and ferns. Fishing floats made of colored glass hang above the outdoor table, casting colored shadows when the sunlight shines through. Once the Maui sun sets, the string of lights overhead can glow for you at night.
When it comes to daytime playtime, this lanai is fully stocked! All you need to bring is your bathing suit, hat, and reef-safe sunscreen, because here you've got: snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand pails, frisbees, boogie boards, kickboards, noodles, life jackets, fishing poles, an ice chest, a beach bag, and a stroller. There is even an outdoor shower and a hose to rinse everything off once you're back! And if you want to clean up a bit more, but you don't feel like making that big commitment to shower upstairs, the half bath on the lower level may be just what you're looking for.
So, what do you think? Are you ready to make this your next great vacation home? Let us know!
We look forward to hosting you at Puamana very soon. Aloha!
WHY PUAMANA IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!
If you're looking for the right place to stay on Maui, consider Puamana Community Townhomes. The beauty of leaving your neighborhood, flying to this island, and staying in Puamana is that you end up somewhere new that also feels like home.
The folks who live in this spacious, secure, 30-acre complex are a peaceful mix of residents and visitors. Those you meet are likely to smile and nod, even if they've never seen you before, and then once they've seen you, you'll feel like family!
Your quiet, clean townhouse will give you the private relaxation you crave, but the gorgeous common areas are what really set Puamana apart. Once you're ready to venture out of your personal honeymoon suite, you will love exploring together and taking full advantage of the amenities. (And if you’re here for a wedding or a family trip with the kids tagging along, so much the better!)
The common areas are elegant, unique, and honestly delightful. When was the last time you swam in a pool that didn't just overlook the ocean, but seemed to be a part of it? One of Puamana's three pools is reserved for quiet rest and relaxation, and it sits literally on the edge of the sea. As you cut through the silent water, watch the ocean waves hit the shore just below, and take in the view of the islands across the channel, you may feel pleasantly transformed. Make sure to stretch out for awhile on the lounge chairs, like an exotic cat. (Well, a mostly hairless cat wearing reef-safe sunscreen and a hat!)
Puamana's larger pools, the Dolphin Pool and the Mountain Pool, are a bit inland. Everyone is welcome to splash and play here! The Dolphin Pool is accessible to all abilities, too; once you give prior notice to the manager, a portable poolside lift can bring you into the water with ease. Children can shout, run, and climb off some energy on the small play structure right next to these two pools. One of you can watch the little ones play, and another can lie back and float, running supervisory interference inside the chain-link fence. Maybe . . . flip a coin?
While spending time at Puamana, you can host a dinner party in the oceanfront gazebo, hit some balls on the tennis court, throw a frisbee on the expansive lawns, and work out in the exercise room (or at least consider it; this is a vacation, after all!). If you'd prefer ocean spray on your face and sand between your toes, Puamana's shoreline invites exploration. Pick your way among coral rubble, stones, and driftwood, and watch for the whales in winter while gazing at the boats moored offshore. Whatever you choose to do, remember - you're on island time!

About Mark Marion
Tina and I honeymooned here in 1985 and fell in love with Maui. We visit every year and always dreamed of owning a home in Lahaina, which consistently has the best weather on the island. When we were introduced to Puamana, we knew we had found our slice of paradise. We invite you to come stay at our home, relax and enjoy the abundance of beauty and Aloha you will find here, Mahalo Nui Loa.

Perfect for our group of 5 friends
This house is a great value in an expensive area. The kitchen is fully outfitted for good cooking and I t has been upgraded. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean and pleasant to be in. The grill and the lanai provided a wonderful evening dining experience. And it is a short walk to the clubhouse on the ocean and the oceanfront pool with spectacular views. Puamana is very beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Great location and nice place to stay
Place was great, very well equipped and close to everything.
Fantastic location, super comfortable home, well equipped for my family of 6! We will return soon!!
Our stay was fantastic! This home had everything we needed and wanted! Comfortable living space, great close to Lahaina harbor location, we felt at home here. BBQ dinner on the Lanai was great, beds were so comfortable after a busy day of snorkeling! Kitchen made it easy to cook in, big tv to relax in front of, washer and dryer was a big plus! Bathrooms are beautiful and plenty of room for everyone! Loved it here!
Beautiful townhome in quiet Lahaina community
We were so sad to leave this property! It was perfect for our group of friends - impressive common spaces and nice little gated community where lots of kids and families roamed about. The house was clean and comfortable; dishwasher and washer/dryer were much appreciated. Even our super neat freak friends were happy. :) The property manager stopped by early to introduce himself, which was nice. Pantry was well-stocked, making our stay very convenient.
My only complaint is that the beaches on site were not sandy beaches - apparently the erosion has left them rocky. There is a public beach with parking that you can walk to if you don't mind scaling some rocks, but easier to drive to if you're bringing towels and umbrellas. Be super careful at that beach though because it has sharp coral - our friend cut his foot pretty badly on the coral when swimming. So it's much better for just sunning yourself and hanging out by the shoreline.
Downtown Lahaina is about 1.5 miles north - its walkable but not all of it on sidewalks. We found it (surprisingly) wasn't too hard parking in Lahaina anyway so no big deal to drive. Would definitely recommend this property!
Great location in garden setting , near beach & town
Our family group of 6 had a great time & enjoyed the proximity to the beach, beautiful sunsets, 3 pools(especially the ocean side one) & the friendly nature of Puamana with even a welcome to call from Mark on our arrival! Lahaina was a short walk or drive away which was ideal to explore the numerous food & shopping options. The condo was clean & comfortable, with all we needed during our 5 night stay. Would definitely stay again!
Great place! Nice location!
I stayed here with five other adults and it was very comfortable. It feels like a real residence and not a vacation condo. The kitchen is especially nice and they did a great job on the remodel. The grounds are really charming, lots of birds and flowers everywhere. We had a great time and we were close to lots of activities. I didn't think I would like staying so close to Lahaina but it worked out great! The pool by the ocean is a nice touch and you can watch the sunset from there as well.
