About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Step into an elegance and lifestyle so mesmerizing you may never want to return home! Enjoy your adventure and make many treasured memories at our three-story upscale townhouse that really is anyone’s dream of ocean front living just 20 feet from the Pacific Ocean. This truly is PARADISE!

Custom remodeled home portrays quality craftsmanship and ties the home together from top to bottom in both styling and materials with bamboo features throughout. The view and location will leave you speechless!!!

The home has a fresh, contemporary feel with exceptionally clean, stylish lines. The tones are light and airy to compliment the ocean-side locale. Sun filled rooms, tastefully furnished and full of tropical charm, completely equipped and accessorized. The view floods every room from all windows of the ocean, the islands of Lanai and Molokai and the rugged West Maui mountains. A gourmet kitchen has quality appliances, cherry wood custom cabinets, bamboo glass, granite counter tops, breakfast bar, & bay window. Bathrooms have have been decorated with travertine tile. There are bamboo window coverings in living room, master and guest bedroom and solar shades in loft bedroom.

Snuggle up in this attractive and comfortable large living area where the ocean is a constant presence with breathtaking views or kick up your heels, relax and watch television or a movie on a 60' high definition screen. Maybe you just want to pull out a stool at the tiki bar and sip on a refreshing tropical splendor. Open the 18’ sliding glass door, and with the wall gone the house feels open and huge & flows from entry to the covered lanai which extends the living room in one seamless sweep. The sense of indoor – outdoor living could not be more complete. The private and quiet lanai is another spot where you could spend hours doing nothing but lounge, and listen to the whisper of the wave’s splash gently at the shore. Watch the surfers swim by and the humpback whales frolic just a few hundred yards away. They will be a daily visitor in the winter launching themselves totally from the water in one of nature’s most amazing displays of power and magnitude. In the evening smell the sizzle of the gas BBQ and watch the flaming spectacular sunset. So many choices! You honestly will have ALL the comforts of home along with a slice of PARADISE!

On the second floor the mirrored wall in the master bedroom suite makes the ocean and coconut palms seem part of the room and offer another chance to be captivated by the view. Open the sliding glass door and feel the gentle breeze and smell the ocean air or walk onto the balcony.

Beds include: master bedroom - Cal-king size bed, guest bedroom - queen size bed (both on 2nd level), loft bedroom (3rd level)- King size bed or 2 twin beds (You have the option), and the comfortable living room couch also opens to a queen size bed for additional sleeping.

There are 2 full baths on the 2nd level and 2 half baths (main level and loft). There are skylights in the master bath and 3rd level half bath. The laundry area is on the first floor.

Beside the BIG screen in the living room, ALL bedrooms have televisions, individual air conditioners, and fans. You can stay connected while vacationing because this unit has an office center with a custom desk and free high speed internet as well as wireless access.

We are located in a lush tropical setting in a private gated colony of low-rise, low density quality town houses (privately owned houses with no neighbors above or below) and share 28 acres of mature, majestic trees, exquisite gardens, manicured lawns and many dozens of graceful palms framing the Pacific Ocean along the sunny south shore of Lahaina in West Maui which was once part of a sugar plantation. This is truly the best weather on the Island! Stroll this magnificent pristine oasis and explore the botanical wonders with palm, banyan and mango trees and lush tropical landscaping filled with exotic flowers. To walk from the clubhouse back to our home you cross a footbridge over a stream that flows during winter rains from the mountains to the sea. You will meander under the bursting canopy of mature royal Poinciana trees with vibrant red blossoms. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and ideal for those who want to be able to retreat from the crowds into the serene quiet of an elegant neighborhood. Private and peaceful are fitting images for this complex.

Enjoy all homeowner’s amenities in this Resort including tennis court, badminton court, children's playground, and a restored plantation home clubhouse – all red tile, white stucco, graceful arches, portico, and covered walkways. The clubhouse is wonderfully refurbished and maintained, furnished with period pieces and available for owners and guests to relax in at their leisure. The clubhouse has a lovely ocean front lanai, large courtyard, card room, piano room, reading parlor, lending library, office, kitchen, and a classic, latticed gazebo stands near the shore behind the clubhouse. Wireless internet high speed access is available in the club house or the ocean front lanai of the club house. Directly perched on the rocks sits the most amazing oceanfront swimming pool which is truly one of a kind where waves can surprise unsuspecting sunbathers (adult quiet pool) and there are 2 additional pools (good for young children).

Lahaina, a former whaling village is now a quaint seaport/harbor village full of shops, many art galleries, restaurants and a great night life and is walking distance from our home approximately one mile away. Many ocean activity boats leave from the Lahaina Harbor. Two 18-hole Championship Golf Courses are located in nearby Kaanapali or drive further north to play golf in Kapalua. Ride the sugar cane train, take a guided hike to secret pools and waterfalls or enjoy many outdoor activities nearby.

Perfect spot, unbeatable views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving in this home and thoroughly enjoyed it. The description of the property is quite accurate and detailed so I won’t bore you with those details. We had everything we needed, and the kitchen and BBQ gave us additional options for meals. We had 6 adults and more family coming over for dinners and never felt crowded.

The location is great— the beach is literally right there, the access gate a few steps away, and you can walk to Lahaina. If you decide to drive, parking is available and often free.

The owner was responsive to my questions/concerns both before and during our stay. She was gracious enough to let us check out late— allowing us more time to relax and watch the waves.

For me, the best part of this home was the lanai/patio space and the upper deck off the master. I spent the majority of my time in those two spots- watching the waves and surfers, enjoying the sunsets and gazing at the stars. A beautiful and peaceful place!

I recommend this home for families wanting to reconnect, relax and unwind in paradise, and I hope to return.

Awesome -Don't even know where to begin!

  • 5 of 5

What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get! We thoroughly enjoyed this condo. We have stayed in many places in Maui and this is the best so far! I think our search for the perfect place is over! We will be back! Having your own yard right on the ocean is wonderful. It is rocky and a good surf out front - but if you walk down to the right -in front of the clubhouse there is a less rocky area to swim but still with a pretty good surf. Grandkids had a blast on the boards. Plenty of water/sand toys, chairs, dishes, etc. Just beautiful all around. Karen was so accommodating with everything and quick responses every time! A dream to work with! You are so close to downtown Lahaina for easy access to shopping, marina, entertainment but it feels like you are so far away and quiet when you are at the condo! Perfect location!!! Road noise on the back side of house but once you are in the door - all you hear is the surf! We rented paddle/surf boards for the week- they brought them right to the house - perfect surf for that everyday! If you have young kids - we found Baby beach in Lahaina - (5 minutes away from condo) absolutely perfect for littler kids and bring your snorkel! Our 10, 6 & 5 year olds snorkeled and saw lots of fish and NO surf - just like a lake due to the barrier of rocks out front! I am pretty fussy when it comes to condos - if you have any question - don't question this one - It's a keeper!!

Can't get any closer to the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

This was a first visit to Maui for our family of four, myself, husband and two young adult sons. The condo was spacious, well-equipped, well located with amazing views. You can't get any closer to the ocean. We saw several turtles swimming by every day. While not luxurious if you are wanting a Four Seasons Resort type experience, it was perfect for our needs. Very comfortable, I enjoyed my tea on the upper deck overlooking the ocean every morning and we all marveled at the beautiful sunsets on the lanai as we grilled our dinners. While the beach is not really suitable for very young children or great snorkeling, beginning to average surfers can have a field day. We were all able to go in for a swim. Recommend swim shoes. Older son got a few scrapes without. We drove to other beaches for calmer water snorkeling which was fine as we had planned on this. One son in the back bedroom thought traffic noise was a bit bothersome so he used the air conditioner at night. We never needed it in master bedroom. Upper floor, one son used it after first night. Easy walk into Lahaina, about a mile, but we decided it wasn't the best idea for traffic safety reasons at night although we saw others on the road. Easy location for all your sightseeing needs. We drove the road to Hana, saw the sunrise on Haleakala, visited Black rock beach. Dined at Lahaina Grill, Feast at Lele (luau), grilled at condo 2 nights delicious fish. All in all, we would highly commend renting this condo. Karen, the owner, was very responsive. Provided an entire binder full of info in the condo on what to do, recommendations for activity and dining. 4 stars considering a Four Seasons type resort 5 stars. 5 stars if considering only condo rentals.

Memorable family experience

  • 4 of 5

This is the first time we've rented this unit although we've been to Puamana a number of times in the past and love the complex. This townhouse is located closer to the end of Puamana and has the advantage of a sandy beach in front from which we were able to launch a surf/paddle board. We loved the western view of the sun and surf from the lanai and it was very private at this end with very few people passing by. The front of the unit is a bit noisy but the windows are very insulating and you rarely spend time in the front anyway. The layout is excellent with a large round table in the living room/dining room area. The kitchen is very well equipped and there were lots of beach towels and snorkelling equipment to use. The owner has thought of everything and leaves detailed instructions about all the necessary information for staying at Puamana. We will definitely come again.

Beautiful condo, amazing location (steps from Puamana Beach), great space for a family.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in several condos in Puamana, and this one far surpasses the others in amenities, layout and location. The large kitchen makes it easy for a family to enjoy the space without crowding. Highly recommended.
