Puamana one bedroom, two bath garden view unit. Near Mountain Pool. Unit is truly an 'Old Hawaii' hide away. Within walking distance to Lahaina Town but far enough away to be quiet and avoid the crowds.
Enjoy the water sports of surfing, boogie boarding, and snorkeling. Hang out by the Mountain Pool or join friends at the Ocean Pool. Get a book from the library and find a place under a shady palm tree.
Watch the sunset in front of the club house, then go back to your place for a barbecue. Or take a short ride into town and find a restaurant that suits your fancy.
Great for kids. Safe and informal. Our family has been a regular at Puamana for nearly 30 years. Once you try it, the odds are high that you and your family will want to come back again and again.

Kathy and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area but try to get to our Maui home at least two or three times a year. We first visited Puamana in 1981. We returned as renters again in 1983 and 1985. By then, we had decided to buy a unit. We have never regretted it. We raised our two boys with many trips to Puamana. Our kids rode their bikes all over Lahaina and enjoyed being a part of the local scene. As they got older, they both learned to surf and became excellent watermen. Puamana has always met our needs and we love it.
Alan Shirek purchased this condo in 1985
Puamana is a great place for families. Our unit is truly 'old Hawaii'. It's an easy place to relax and not feel as if you have to spend lots of time cleaning up. Our unit is close to the Mountain Pool, which is seldom crowded. You can sit on the lanai, go to the pool, get a book from the library or walk into town. It's a short walk to the beach and you can surf, boogie board or snorkel right near home. The kids can run free and the parents don't have to worry about them getting into trouble.
We really enjoyed the location. We had a very relaxing trip and made good use of the nearby tennis court. We really enjoyed the well maintained grounds and the use of the back patio for dining and relaxing. The place was well equipped and wish we could have stayed longer.
Puamana is a fantastic community of well maintained properties. It is a totally different vibe than the resorts, which we love. Great beach, beautiful former plantation general manager mansion serves as the clubhouse. Walk into Lahaina. This property is clean and well cared for. It is a couple minute walk to the beach from the unit, so if you want oceanfront this is close but not quite there.
Great trip and stay in Maui. This was our second vacation In Lahina and we our family is already planning a third.
Recommended highly!! We were really impressed with the Puamana community. It's quiet and welcoming, and I was immediately attracted to the landscaping with grand old trees and bright flowers. It doesn't feel like a resort or a condo -- it feels like a neighborhood!
The apartment, while not ocean view, is very well located, not far from the clubhouse and next to a pool. It is very clean, nicely decorated, and has all the amenities. (I appreciated the washer and dryer.) The bedroom is large with a big closet. My friend slept very comfortably on the sleeper sofa. Kitchen supplies were excellent for cooking dinners when we weren't dining out in Lahaina.
We LOVED swimming at Puamana's community beach, just a few minutes walk away. The pools are beautifully maintained, too. Be sure to enjoy the sunset from the Ocean Pool!
While we explored the mountains and beaches of southern and western Maui, hiking and snorkeling, it was always such a pleasure to return "home" to our condo and be able to completely relax. We often dined on the back lanai, and I picked up the fallen plumeria blossoms to breathe in that pure Hawaii aroma! We'll be back! Thank you, Alan and Kathy, for sharing your home.
