New 2 Bd/2.5 Ba Indoor/outdoor Living Design. Ocean, Mountain And Pool Views
New design and construction completed in late 2015, the Puamana Zen retreat provides a beautiful experience for adults and the whole family. The whole concept was designed with indoor and outdoor living in mind. High-end materials, granite, floors, and furniture evoke a modern Pacific spa. The cool blues and greens, warm browns and yellows tie together the land, surf, and sun that characterizes the beauty and adventure of Maui. Our home has free WiFi and a TV in every room but we hope you'll be too busy playing outdoors, enjoying the sunsets, and just admiring the night sky instead of using them.
The master bedroom is one of few on Maui where you can listen and view the blue Pacific while actually laying in the Heavenly Queen bed. Luxury Fleetwood doors allow you to open the master bedroom fourteen feet bringing the outdoors in so you can fall sleep with the sound of the surf and wake to the sound of tropical birds. Intimate lighting controls and options let you set the mood.
The large master bath has a beautifully tiled shower, inlaid custom tile and lighting, and two shower heads. The master sink is over seven feet long with his and hers sinks and a large custom mirror that is over 7’ long bringing the outdoors in.
The large master deck has comfortable lounge chairs and a love seat with views over the pool, expansive Puamana gardens and the ocean. When the waves are up you’ll be able to watch surfers and during whale season even spot a breaching whale. Enjoy your coffee in the morning and photo-worthy sunsets in the evening while enjoying a glass of wine. A broad umbrella provides welcome shade during the day providing a comfortable spot to read a book, enjoy the view, and catch the cooling Pacific breeze. It's also the perfect spot for late night star gazing. Dim the master bedroom lights, open the doors wide and just absorb the peaceful Maui night while being serenaded by the rhythms of the surf.
The guest bedroom has a heavenly queen bed, TV, A/C, and separate bath with custom tile and multiple shower heads. The oversized window frames views of the west Maui mountains inspiring you to take one of those epic Maui hikes to discover the waterfalls and tropical forests.
The main floor was designed for indoor / outdoor living where the Fleetwood doors open 14 feet wide to encourage flow. It's perfect for entertaining, family meals, and games. It's an open floor plan from the front door to the edge of the lanai.
The covered lanai is over 200 square feet and designed for al fresco dining. The setting has custom lighting and fans to let you set the mood and keep as cool as possible. The lanai also has a barbecue for grilling fresh fish, burgers, or steaks that you buy from places like Maui Prime, an awesome and very friendly fresh seafood and butcher shop. It's less than a 10 minute car or bike ride away in Lahaina. They'll even give you some tips and tricks on grilling fish and may even share some family recipes if you linger long enough.
The lanai has an outdoor shower and towel hooks so you can rinse off after a dip in the pool or a swim in the ocean. With the pool just steps away and within easy speaking distance, it's a great place to have lunch without worrying if you forget something - our home is right there.
The gourmet kitchen has everything you need whether your preparing an elaborate evening meal or a quick and simple picnic lunch before heading to the beach. The layout and placement of the custom drawers and cabinets was designed for intuitive and efficient cooking to place everything you need at your fingertips.
The spacious kitchen island that seats four was designed for dining, cooking preparation and to encourage conversation. It's an incredibly beautiful and rare piece of granite that mimics the colors and movement of the ocean. The blues, sand, earth, and natural whites center the main living area and inspire you to get out and explore the beautiful pacific all around Maui.
The living room serves as a transition to and an extension of the lanai. The comfortable sleeper sofa is the same as you'll find at the Ritz and the room has HD TV along with free WiFi which is available throughout the home.
The community of Puamana is very family friendly and safe for children. The speed limit is 10 Mph but most of the traffic you'll encounter will be people on bikes or simply walking. The grounds are spectacular and the three pools, tennis court, clubhouse, and beach beckon you everyday to get out and play.

About Margaret and Erik, Owners / Property Managers
We've been married for 26 years, met at the University of Washington (Go Huskies!), have two adult children and love all of the Hawaiian Islands, especially Maui. Being from Seattle we love the outdoors and have a passion for the mountains, beach, and ocean - all things Maui has but with a much better climate. Our family and friends, and making new ones, are an important part of our life and we love nothing more than sharing a great meal and wine with lively conversation.
Margaret and Erik, Owners / Property Managers purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Margaret and Erik, Owners / Property Managers chose Lahaina
We looked all over the west coast and the Hawaiian Islands until we found Puamana. When we first stayed in Puamana, the large Mango tree in front of the clubhouse began dropping its fruit. We were told that it's for sharing and anyone in the community can harvest it which really captures the true Hawaiian spirit. If you've never had fresh mango, you're in for a treat. The location is perfect - you simply don't have to get in a car unless you choose. Lahaina is an easy walk or bike to fantastic restaurants, bars with live music, groceries and shopping. Having three different surf breaks that cater to different skill levels right off the beach which is just steps away from our unit was a huge plus as well. The fact that Puamana has three pools, one of which is the only ocean front pool in all of Maui, and a great clubhouse for community gatherings makes this truly a special place.
What makes this Townhome unique
We absolutely love the views and location of our home. We put a lot of thought into the design to take advantage of the location and capture the spirit of the islands. We like the option of never having to get in our car and just ride our bikes to go shopping, out for dinner, and going to other beaches nearby.

Better than advertised
This house is incredibly well stocked with everything you’ll need and more. The quality is impressive and the house is immaculate. Beach towels, chairs, snorkels, pool floats are all extras provided I’ve never seen at other rentals. Convienent to Lahaina yet secluded. Owners are very responsive. Beds are comfortable and property manager lives in the community and is responsive if you need something. I’d highly recommend this rental.
Very relaxing vacation
The location is very convenient to Lahaina. Staying there was way better than a resort for us because of the additional space as well as a full kitchen. The beds are comfy the condo is clean. This is a really nice condo in a great location. We would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful condo and location
Beautifully remodeled condo in a great family oriented complex. All of the beds were super comfortable, even the sofa bed. The condo is well stocked with any amenity you could need. The upstairs master has a large slider that opens to a great patio. I could hear the waves of the ocean at night and the birds singing in the morning. My daughter slept comfortably in the guest room which faces the west Maui mountains. Puamana is located right on the ocean. We enjoyed walking to the clubhouse at night and enjoying the sunset with the other residents and visitors. It is also very close to downtown Lahaina which is a beautiful little beach town with great shopping and restaurants. Small issues that came up were solved quickly by the property manager who lives on site. The owners were very attentive to all communication from me before and during my stay. Couldn’t ask for more! We plan to definitely stay there next year if the owners will have us! Aloha
Paradise for our Daughter's Wedding
Aloha Margaret & Erik,
We had such a beautiful relaxing stay with the warmest Aloha spirit at your home. The back porch lanai was so amazing with all the beautiful mature tropical foliage, geckos, ocean and pools views. I like to think I am a chef and was pleasantly surprised that I found everything I could possibly need and more to prepare any dish. Loved the huge center island, myself and my daughters made bouquets for the wedding the night before. The master bedroom was amazing, waking up to the sound of the ocean is truly the meaning and spirit of Hawaii. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, we will be back!!
Beautiful, relaxing retreat
When my sister and I arrived at this beautiful condo, our lovely owner Margaret was there to greet us. She was as delightful as the condo.
We enjoyed the lanai every morning for breakfast and in the afternoon/evening as well. The lush gardens were enjoyable and beautiful. The condo is comfortable and has everything you’d need! We’d love to return to this little slice of heaven!
Lovely, comfortable space open to beautiful views, with everything we could want.
5 of us stayed here very comfortably for a week -- taking advantage of ocean, the pools, the fabulously-equipped kitchen, the two large decks, comfy beds, laundry and multiple bathrooms. We loved being able to walk into Lahaina so easily, but leaving the busy-ness behind to return here. We swam morning, noon and night and appreciated all the beach chairs, boogie boards, rafts, snorkeling gear, etc. Margaret and Erik have thought of everything...It was perfect!
Your experience begins with the unique and beautiful 28 acre grounds of Puamana, a lushly landscaped and private community with 3 pools and a beach perfectly situated for family or adult play and relaxation. The adult pool is the only pool in all of Maui that is directly on the ocean. Lounge in the sun while watching the surfers, beachgoers, and the Humpback whales during their migration. There are 3 surf breaks right off the beach, a tennis court, and a clubhouse to gather for a glass of wine or cocktail, pick out a book from the lending library or socialize with other residents. When in season there are mango, avocado, lime and lemon trees you can pick from and incorporate into your meals - they are there for the whole community to enjoy. Puamana is an easy level walk or bike to Lahaina Town (less than a mile) with fantastic restaurants, bars, grocery stores, shopping, and cafes. Rent surfboards, standup paddle boards, snorkeling gear, or bikes from one of the local shops. Most of them will even deliver to your door in Puamana for a no hassle experience. Whale watching, snorkeling, scuba, and boating tours can be booked right from the marina in Lahaina and golf is just six miles away at the well-regarded Kaanapali Golf Course. The Goofy Foot Surf School is a 5 minute bike ride from our unit in Lahaina and is a must if you've never surfed before. They are great and you will learn to surf with them. Pacific'O restaurant is a favorite and true farm and sea to table restaurant. It too is only a 5 minute bike or car ride (yes biking in Lahaina is as efficient as a car given the 20 mph speed limit) or it's a 20 minute walk. The restaurant has its own farm upcountry which is a must see if you have the time. The bar is elegant but casual and the restaurant is right on the beach so you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets. "Baby Beach" is the best beach for young children in Maui with a protected reef. It's only a 10 minute bike or car ride away at the other end of Lahaina. Kaanapali, with its mega hotels and condos, is only a 15 minute car ride away and is a fun excursion to hang at the beach and snorkel off Black Rock or have dinner at Japengo for great sushi. Napili Bay along with Kapalua and their great snorkeling beaches are 25 minutes away. But the best of the best for snorkeling can be found at Honolua Bay Marine park which is also about 25 minutes away. Go about 10 minutes further and you'll be able to experience the famous Nakalele Blowhole.
