Puamana is a gated community that is located near the heart of the historic old whaling town of Lahaina in sunny West Maui, Hawaii.
In all of Hawaii there is nothing comparable to the beauty of Puamana. Our splendid townhomes are located on 30 acres of lush botanical gardens, large expanses of flourishing lawns and along side nearly a half mile of beautiful oceanfront with breathtaking views of the ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai.
Puamana has three pools, a tennis court, clubhouse and a library. There is a quiet ocean pool, a kids pool and play ground, and a third pool. It is located on a half mile of oceanfront and half is usually sandy and half is usually rocky. Residents and guests, surf, snorkel, swim and kayak right off the property. The property is walking distance to the town of Lahaina's shops, restaurants, and the Marina where the boats come and go and the fishing boats bring in their catches. There are many banana, mango, lime and avocado trees on the property that yield great fruits for guests and residents.
The gated community that has security is great for kids and adults who want to experience the 'quiet enjoyment' of this very private property. Once you vacation at Puamana, you will never want to go anywhere else! We have visitors that have been coming to Puamana for more than 30 years.

I am an owner/Broker and vacation property manager.
I have decorated my unit with Hawaiian quilts that I have made myself . Because we stay here often, the kitchen is very well-equipped for dining in.
Leann Strasen-Weasler purchased this townhome in 1998
This vacation rental townhouse is at the end of the property and usually has sand in front of the unit and does not have a lot of people walking by. It's very private and beautiful. Registration Identification Number W-00768228-01
One of the greatest things about this unit is sitting on the oceanfront lanai having a glass of wine, watching the beautiful sunsets over lanai, watching the whales jump, and watching the stars and the cruise ships come in and out in the evening.
We had a great time swimming and surfing right off the beach in front of your condo. Our evening dinners on the lanai were the best oceanfront seating in Lahaina. Thanks for a great time in your beautiful home . We will be back for sure.
We stayed here over Christmas with our two sons, ages 11 and 13. Booking and dealing with the management went smooth and easy. The townhouse is spacious and as advertised.... We enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen, each having our own bedroom, and having lots of space to spread out. I loved being close to Lahaina.... we didn't walk there as it was probably about 30 min walk away with no actual sidewalk, just a shoulder, but it was about a 5 min drive, close to grocery shopping, feast at lele, surfing lessons , Front street etc. The townhouse is in the last section of townhouses before Puamana beach park (public beach) but we didn't notice any issues from that. It is located right on the highway, and at first I thought it would really annoy me, as I am very sensitive to noise, but we found if we kept the door on that side of the house closed, it wasn't noticeable. Our eyes and ears were drawn to the other side of the house, with the ocean!
A couple things I wish I'd known: although the townhouse is oceanfront, you are not allowed to access the beach in front of your townhouse. You have to walk way way down to a common access point, which is super annoying. There are signs and caution tape all along the shoreline saying $250 fine if you go down to the beach at a no access point. But to carry all the gear and walk around is annoying, when paying for a waterfront place..... You have to haul stuff as far as if you were not renting waterfront. The other thing is that the beach is sandy with pockets of big rocks. We went swimming without watershoes and within 15 minutes we all had cut feet, my husbands pretty badly. So if you swim there, be sure to wear Aqua socks.
I'm torn about staying here again.... The place itself was nice, location on Maui great.... But I think I'd try to find a place where I was allowed to access the beach right at my rental.
We visited for a week in July with two adults and four teenagers and couldn't have been happier. The townhouse, the location, and Leann were all fantastic. Plenty of room and everything we needed in the kitchen and for the beach were available for our use. Felt like we were in heaven with the beach only seven paces from the edge of the lanai.
Would definitely book this unit again for a return trip to Maui!
This is my last night here at this wonderful condo located in the idyllic setting of the Puamana resort. Firstly, the view is insane, off the charts serene and beautiful. The condo: full of beautiful island touches, well-stocked with the finer things in life, the lanai for bbq dinners perfect, and the local property manager immediately responded to any questions/needs. I like you spent hours searching for the perfect property for my 4 boys and my husband and I. Trust me when I say look no further, this IS what you are looking for!!!
I recently stayed at this condo unit for a week with my four daughters (ages 23 - 35) and we all really loved it! The condo had all the amenities we could ask for. The location was close to downtown Lahaina so we could walk or drive. There are two bikes available and one of my daughters enjoyed biking into Lahaina for a morning ride. Our timing was perfect this year for watching whales from the condo, whether you were sitting on the front lawn. standing on the lanai or lounging in the hammock that was provided. This was a real thrill each day! The condo is near the end of Puamana complex so we had very few neighbors passing in front of us. It seemed more private than some of the other units.
We ate most of our meals at the condo as the kitchen was fully equipped, large and spacious including the use of the outside BBQ. My favorite feature of the condo was the master bedroom, with the rock shower and spectacular view. There is some road noise that can be heard from the back bedrooms, however, this could be reduced by keeping the air conditioners on at a low level. The condo had everything we could ask for including the washer and dryer, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs and most items that a visiting traveler could ask for.
The description and photos of this property seem accurate, however, the one feature that was mentioned that we were excited about was the jacuzzi and this was not included. It would not have made a difference in our decision about choosing this unit, but it is misleading. Puamana has 3 pools, and our group primarily used the oceanside pool which was beautiful with the views and setting. This condo is further away from the pools so you have a longer walk than some of the other units, however, it is more private and closer to the beach.
Our family really had a wonderful time at Puamana and this condo. We all felt it was one of our best vacations and most incredible setting on the ocean. I would highly recommend to other people that are looking for a memorable vacation.
