Overview

About the property

Oceanfront Studio Condo + Queen bed, Queen Sofa Sleeper, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to Kaimana at Pohailani Maui! Enjoy amazing ocean views, sunsets, wildlife watching, and neighbor island views of Molokai and Lanai from this well provisioned condo located on West Maui.

We are located so close to the ocean you could throw a stone into the waves. So close, it is as if you are on a boat! Take advantage of Maui living on your private lanai (balcony), as well as spectacular ocean views extending down the coast. The first Humpback Whales are here now too!

The main living area has full ocean views and is very comfortable. Accented with tropical hardwoods, this studio has a comfortable Queen sized bed and Queen sized sofa sleeper.

A beautiful lanai allows you to expand the living area outdoors for full indoor/outdoor living in your private oasis. Dine in with the best ocean view.

Whale watch, gaze out over the sea, or just listen to the waves. Relax and enjoy paradise. Peace and tranquility define this cozy condo by the sea.

Kaimana is fully furnished and has everything you need to enjoy gracious island living, just bring your swimsuit and toothbrush! We have all the linens, towels, beach equipment (boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella) and kitchen gadgets you may want.

The condo is stocked with quality appointments. The sheets are 800 thread count, the towels are Ralph Lauren, and the bed is a plush Simmons BeautyRest. This condo is set up as your own home.

Complete with a full kitchen and bathroom with a tub and shower, Kaimana has all the touches of home for you to enjoy your stay after sightseeing around Maui.

Kahana is located North of historic Lahaina town, between Kaanapali and Kapalua resorts, and is a half mile from a grocery store, shops, and a farmers market. World class resorts, famous beaches, championship golf courses, and even ferry rides to Lanai and Molokai are within 15 minutes driving time or less. Pohailani sits on 8 acres of tropical landscaping. We invite you to enjoy our piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha

Our stay here was everything you promised!!! We felt blessed by the rainbows, the whale sightings, the sea turtles, and crabs who came so close we could watch them from the lanai!!!



The tours we took up the North coast and on around the island to the South most point provided magnificent photo ops yet got us back before dark.



What a joy this has been!!!

No need to look anywhere else-fabulous condo!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous condo! We absolutely loved your place, Melissa! You were so great to work with as I had many questions and you were very helpful. Your place felt like home, it was so cozy and comfortable with your decorations, wonderful bed and nice linens & towel. Your extras that you provide also came in handy, we used the boogy boards, the chairs, beach towels and coolers every day. We loved that we could make our meals in the kitchen, but also had several places nearby to eat at also. The location was great, you're able to get on the bus 1 block away that took us to Lahinia and Kaanapali Beach area and then came back to a nice and peaceful place where you can sit and hear the waves of the ocean all night long from your place. We have rented a lot of places on VRBO and loved yours, you obviously take very nice care of it and the top thing for us was that it was very clean!! We will definitely be back and book your place early so it's open. For anyone who is looking at renting this I would highly recommend! Mahalo!!

Cozy, quaint, lovely view.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our needs, the lanai is most certainly the best part, with an amazing view and the sound of waves can be heard any time of the day or night. The condo had everything we needed for cooking in, and has a great location to major beaches. Highly recommend!

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! The condo was clean and very comfortable. The view was amazing and we could watch the whales (February visit) right from the balcony. We used the really nice beach chairs you had. Thank you for sharing your space! We had a great time!

Maui Efficiency Condo

  • 4 of 5

Very nice overall. Great views, can see whales breaching offshore, waves breaking outside your terrace. Nice community pool. Quiet neighborhood. Easy walks to several beaches. Good covered parking. Just a bit small (it is an efficiency, not a two bedroom condo ).

Stunning Ocean View from the Lanai

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our 15 year wedding anniversary trip. This was our first visit to Maui so we did very little research about where to stay. We found this view and decided to book it. It did not disappoint. Melissa gave great directions and instructions for everything. The complex was very quiet and not in the middle of a tourist/resort area which we appreciated. The only drawback was no beach access from the complex. The nearest beach for a long stroll (Kaanapali) was a 10 minute drive and since we weren't staying at a resort parking for it was tricky. Luckily we had a Maui book that gave us specifics on where to find public parking for the beach. Napili beach was a closer drive but very small and not for strolling plus no public restrooms. Melissa gave us some excellent local restaurant recommendations that we frequented. The sunsets on this side of the island are nothing short of spectacular and we saw so many whales from our lanai. If you are looking for a great value for Maui and don't mind driving to the beach this is a great pick. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are happy you enjoyed the condo and had a nice stay. As a side note, Kahana Beach borders the condo to the south, which would give you about a ten minute walk. The longest, widest beach on the West side is Kaanapali Beach and Kaanapali North Beach. There is free parking and a restroom at the north end of Kaanapali North, about 5 minutes drive from the condo. You can walk south on the beach or an oceanfront boardwalk that will take you to Blackrock, follow the boardwalk to Kaanapali Beach, and choose beach or boardwalk. You can continue down to Lahaina on oceanfront footpaths. Another option for a stretch of beach is up north called D.T. Fleming Beach in Kapalua. All the details and directions are in a binder in the condo. The only other long stretches of beach are in Wailea or Baldwin Beach along the North Shore. Thanks again for staying with us. We would love to have you back.

Map

Kahana is located halfway between Kaanapali and Kapalua. There is nearby Golf courses in Kapalua and Kaanapali, including Kapalua Golf Academy. There are many hiking and walking trails in the area. There are several restaurants, banks, shops, and a small general store within walking distance of the condo, including Maui Brewing Company, Dollie's, and a Sushi restaurant. There are several great beaches in the neighborhood, and several great snorkeling spots in the area. Honolua Bay is just north, and Ironwoods horseback riding is a 5 minute drive. Lahaina Harbor and Kaanapali Beach are close by and have boats that go sailing, snorkeling, whale watching (in season), and have dinner cruises. So much more...A guide in the condo will give you more info.
