Pohailani Maui Resort, or Kalekaiko (Paradise), is located in a very quiet private facility that is great for relaxation and enjoying the many beautiful plants, trees and birds. Exercising on the tennis and basketball court is only one minute across the commons. After the vigorous activities, you can cool off in the pool just twenty steps from your lanai. For immediate shopping and dining or fast food, one minute to the gate behind the property is a mini mall with four restaurants, a McDonalds, a Dive Shop, a convenience store, a grocery store and several small shops. Resort property is on the beach with unit 148 only a 120 step stroll to the beach and ocean. You can enjoy snorkeling, boogie boarding, swimming and building sand castles, reading or just kicking back in the sun.
For the golfer, there are four world class golf courses within seven minutes from the facility. North and South courses at Ka'anapali. The North Course is the location of Wendi's Skin Games and for years hosted the Senior Tour. They also shot the 2008, The Big Break, for The Golf Channel on the North Course. North of the Pohailani is Kapalua featuring The Plantation Course and the Kapalua Bay course. The Plantation Course is the home of the SBS Tour championship (was Mercedes Open), 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.
A five minute drive south is Ka'anapali. Aside from the golf, Ka'anapali offers terrific dining at five star restaurants, shopping and the Whale Museum at Whalers Village. Three more minutes south is Lahaina. Lahaina, once the whaling capital of the world, offers shopping at The Cannery Mall, (once a pineapple canning factory), a Sugar Cane Train Tour, dining and shopping. Along 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 or board the Yellow Submarine for underwater views without getting wet. On Front Street there are the usual tourist shops and several art and jewelry shops featuring world re-known artist's pieces.

Jim and Carol Jones - Retired. Purchased to celebrate 50th wedding anniversary.
After several trips to Maui, we chose Kahana and Pohailani because the neighborhood is quiet and removed from the tourist hot spots. Yet, it is close to the beach and ocean (120 steps), close to a convenience store, about 120 steps, a five star restaurant, a sports bar, a McDonalds and various other stores within 5-7 minute drive. The property is beautiful with flourishing trees and plants and several species of birds. We love it!
Enjoy a morning walk without leaving the property or walk south down the street about five minutes to have your coffee, meet other folks, read a paper or watch people and traffic. You can sleep late without disturbances. Rules do not allow power tools to operate before 9 AM. Sit on the lanai in the early morning or late evening and enjoy the trade-winds. In the evening you will reach for the cover as the temperature drops after the sun goes down - perfect sleeping! Use the ceiling fans (five of them)- gotcha covered - and no AC noise.
All activities are within a thirty minute drive from the rental unit. Except for Hana Rd. and Haleakala, everything is in Kihei, LaHaina, Kahana and Kapalua.
