About the property

2BD/1BATH Air conditioned condo with a loft. Vaulted ceiling steps to the beach

Come experience Pohailani and the Kahana area! Kahana is located in West Maui in between Ka'anapali and Napili/Kapalua. Sandy Kahana Beach is just steps across the street from our condo.

Situated in a lush garden setting at the Pohailani condos in Kahana, our 2nd floor cozy 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom beach theme condo is a quiet retreat to call your home away from home on Maui. Our air conditioned condo is the perfect place for your Hawaiian vacation.

Only a two minute walk to the beach, Pohailani #252, is a peaceful two bedroom / one bath condominium that sleeps six comfortably. There is also a loft with a full matress that is accessible by ladder and great for older kids (12yrs and up) for additional sleeping! There is cable TV in the living room and high speed wifi. Vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans throughout contribute to the airy tropical feel of this unit. A large covered lanai overlooks the lush tropical park like setting with a table for dining and futon for afternoon naps. Perfect for a relaxing cocktail while keeping a close eye on the kids playing!

Kahana has so many beach parks to snorkel, picnic, or barbecue and it’s refreshingly cooler at night than other parts of the island. Restaurants of varying cuisine up and down the West side, with many tucked away in tropical foliage, to offer the slower pace that people look for in Hawaii. Incredible snorkeling at Kapalua and Napili Bays which are absolutely stunning and just a short drive from our condo. No need to pay for a snorkeling trip - just jump right in.

For the golfer, there are four world class golf courses within seven minutes from the condo. 5 minutes South is beautiful Ka'anapali with two 18 hole courses and 10 min North is Kapalua featuring The Plantation Course and the Kapalua Bay course. The Plantation Course is the home of the PGA Championships tournament, the first competition of the PGA Tour each year. If these four courses are not enough challenge, there are eight other top rated courses on Maui plus the Kahului city course.

Aside from the golf, Ka'anapali offers terrific dining at five star restaurants, black rock beach, shopping and the Whale Museum at Whalers Village. Three more minutes south is Lahaina, once the whaling capital of the world, Lahaina's Front Street is one of the world's largest banyan trees covering 2/3 of an acre. Behind the banyan tree is the Lahaina Harbor where you depart for sea excursions to watch the whales - in season, cruise to other islands. On Front Street there is incredible dining and shopping with several art and jewelry shops featuring world re-known artist's pieces.

About Nancy Welliver

Aloha, my family and I live in Southern California and love the ocean. We are an active family and love the sun, water, hiking and golf. I came to Maui for vacation one spring break and fell in love with the Aloha spirit of the Island and its people. Can't say enough about Maui and owning and share our beautiful condo just made sense. I hope you enjoy Maui as much as we do.

Nancy Welliver purchased this condo in 2016

Why Nancy Welliver chose Lahaina

I fell in love with this complex immediately. Most complex's are crowded but Pohailani is situated on 9 acres of lush gardens with a park like setting with only 112 condo's total.

What makes this condo unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our week at Nancy's condo. It was perfect for the three of us. The location was very good, and the grounds are very lush and spacious. It was great to have parking right next to the unit and we made use of the boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella. I took a walk every morning and if you go North the road is very quiet and you see plenty of beach and ocean views . I also enjoyed lounging on the day bed on the lanai. Maui Brewing is an easy walk which my daughter, a beer fan , loved . We can't wait to come back ... just want to make it longer next time !

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was a nice size and located in a wonderful area. Close to Napili, Kapalua and Kanipaali beaches. The unit backs on to a courtyard area that is quiet and has a pool and shared bbq. There is coin laundry in the complex.

We saw some of the other units in the complex as we stayed with a number of families, and the other units were much more updated than this one, but it still had a nice Hawaiian feel to it.

The unit had basic plates, bowls and cutlery. There were some dishes for cooking and we ate a number of meals in. The lanai was nice to eat meals on.

There is one parking stall and parking was easy. Within walking distance is the Maui brewing company, a great little coffee shop and good sushi.

All in all a good experience.

Clean, comfortable condo in a really good location. Very responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Maui and this was a great place for us (4 adults). The condo itself was clean with 2 spacious bedrooms & a loft with another bed. We had everything necessary in the kitchen, and appreciated the good wifi and TV with lots of channels for winding down at the end of the day. Both the bath & beach towels were plush & soft. The couch on the lanai was really comfortable, and also great for relaxing after a day out. There were beach chairs and snorkeling equipment for us to use. And a lot of brochures on things to do.

It was really nice to have parking right next to the unit. The location was really good, with a couple of plazas within walking distance as well as a McDonald’s. The Hawaii Village Coffee shop nearby has amazing coffee. Just across & down the street, the beaches are very accessible. It was a short drive (15 minutes) to get to some great beaches in the area - D.T. Fleming to the north and Ka’anapali to the south, as well as Lahaina’s famous Front Street for shopping, restaurants & surfing schools.

Nancy was very responsive before, during & after our stay, and always a pleasure to deal with.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the supplies, there is always excess and I wish you would of sent a message and we would of brought you supplies immediately. As for check out time, we had a guest coming in that day and needed time to do a complete cleaning to get it ready for our next guest. The loft is only for older kids 12 yrs and above, but there is room for 6 to sleep without the loft.

Great location, quiet, all we needed for a family vacation in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Property was well located between Kaanapali, Napili and Kapalua. Very nice beach at walking distance in Kahana village. Two bedrooms were of a great size, good kitchen and wonderful balcony with end of day sun light perfect for happy hours! Nancy was very quick to respond to my enquiries and great to deal with. The property was very quiet, great access to ocean and sunset, pools are clean (although a bit cold but refreshing!) I do recommend this place for a stay. I was travelling with a 7 months old baby and the place was accommodating.

Quiet tropical setting in a comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights a total of 3 couples utilizing the loft as 3rd adult sleeping area. Comfy beds, plenty of fans and weather was great, cooling at night after we returned from exploring.Location was off the beaten path in a nice quiet location with easy access to everything. Walk to Maui Brewing which was the most affordable outside dining location. Easy access to beach, turtles playing right across the street, great BBQ and pool area! Great vacation and many great memories here. Responsive owner highly recommended! Mahalo 🌴🌴🌴

FIne for the reasonable price

  • 3 of 5

This place was fine for the low price we paid. We did not use the pools and there is just a view of the courtyard. The view of the water is across the street within the complex. The condo complex is a long way from activities such as the Hana Road, Haleakala (volcano), and snorkeling trips. You will have to drive absolutely everywhere you want to go and the traffic (even in the offseason) is less than relaxing despite the beautiful views. The property needs some simple, general improvements (fix broken lamps, fix roof leak in bathroom). If you want a reasonably priced place that is cozy, this is the place for you, just be prepared to travel a ways to get to activities .

Owner's Response: The condo is located between the 3 of the best beaches on maui, Kaanapali Kapalua and Napili all with amazing restaurants. There are tons of stuff to do on the West Side, thats why there is traffic because everyone wants to come to West Maui. Front Street in Lahaina with great shopping and places to eat, Whalers Village, top Golf courses and all the great restaurants. Sorry that you weren't interested in all Lahaina has to offer. Generally my guest actually raved about the location.
