About the property

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.

Lovely, comfortable space open to beautiful views, with everything we could want.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great townhouse and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Margaret and Erik's townhouse. It was truly our home away from home. With a view of the ocean from our bedroom and a pool readily available behind the house, it was great for our family of 5. The location was very convenient to Lahaina, the harbor, the airport, etc. The townhouse is well-maintained, the kitchen is well-appointed with everything needed, and Margaret and Erik were great to work with.

Great for 2 couples

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful townhome that was thoughtfully put together. This was our first stay at Puamana (usually we stay closer in town) and it had its pros and cons in comparison.

Pros:

Beautiful unit

Dog next door “woody” was so great

Oceanside pool

Great lanai off master

Cons:

Roadside noise

Loud leaf blowers all day

Farther from town-the walk is fine during the day but at night it’s so dark with no walking area it’s not safe

All in all it was a lovely time and the owners were communicative! The condo was stocked with all our needs except a coffee grinder but we picked one up and left behind for future renters.

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was outstanding. Margaret and Eric are great hosts. They reached out and offered any assistance needed. Their home is beautiful. The area is amazing. We were close to everything we wanted to see. The views from the condo are breathtaking. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful, centrally located, place to stay.

Shhh we dont want too many people to know about this oasis...

  • 5 of 5

Really this home is a true gem and a rare find. I am so excited that we chose this as our base for our vacation to Maui.

Erik and Margaret have done an incredible job completely renovating this unit into something truly special. They have thought of everything so you dont need to bring much with you at all. Stop by Costco on your way in from the airport and stock up on eats for the week for the days you feel like just staying "home". The kitchen is very modern and has it all. Meals on the lanai are a must. Plus there is a grill at the unit.

Upstairs there is a high end Maytag washer and dryer set. Keep all the extra clothes at home and travel with a few mix and match items.

Each bedroom is very comfortable. The beds are good quality as is the furnishing which is very well done with extra features like under lighting. Great air conditioning if you need it as there is a breeze which flows thru when windows are open during the cooler nights if you have them. The front bedroom has mountain views while the back has a pool plus ocean view. This bedroom also has a balcony area great for a nice book read or just relax.

The unit itself is about 100 yds to the beach. While some would pay extra to be right on the beach itself, after staying here I would not do that as this is really very close for a thousand or more $ less.

The beach is " private " ( although no Hawaii beach is truly private ) this one comes very close. There were no more than 10 people on the Puamana beach at any time in front of the condo units which was awesome.

Puamana itself is like an old plantation that has been locked away as a paradise all its own. Very well kept, secure, with the amenities you need. Shopping / Eating in Lahaina is a very short less than 5 min drive away. It is like Key West in Hawaii.... you wont have to stray far for anything.

We plan on coming back to Hawaii again next year. If Maui is our destination then we are hoping to find availabilty with Erik and Margaret. I hope all this true positive commenting is not going to push the availabilty way out.... but it is a risk worth taking to share how wonderful this gem in Maui is.

Don't think any further - book it - you will not be disappointed.

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.
