Puamana 46-3 Superior Ocean Front

If you love nature & the ocean views, this is your unit!! Updated recently. LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to stumble on a gap in stays in this lovely ocean FRONT unit.

If you've never been to this property, trust me, ocean FRONT is what you want if you are longing to let the ocean heal your soul. This unit is that!

We moved to this unit from a gorgeously remodelled unit. I assure you, we couldn't wait to move here. This unit has been recently updated, is lovely & clean, but the other unit was a bit more high-end. We didn't's the ocean that is why you want Puamana. It's just that simple. The other unit had peaks of ocean-view, and you could hear the ocean a bit from upstairs, but the magic just wasn't there.

From 46-3, each morning, I looked forward with excitement to opening the drapes to see what the ocean's daily activity offered. On days when I got up with the birds I watched the light come up on the water. Watched nature surround us. At night, you can sit and stare at the stars and the ocean's activity again.

Anytime of day, nature surrounds you and is right there for viewing at a better proximity than nearly any place else.

There's no one above or below you, so it's very quiet, with the exception of nature itself.

There are gorgeous units.....we've been in them. But if you aren't ocean-front, you miss one of the key reasons to stay in Puamana. We were on Maui and the Big Island for a total of 3 weeks, but this was one of the #1 highlights.

Puamana generally is also great for so many reasons.....

There's the proximity of parking, barbecuing on your own Lanai, being surrounded by nature {birds are your alarm clock--6 am on this trip).

This trip we saw butterflies, frogs, whales & seals from our lanai & around the property....

And trees, plants & flowers!!).

There's the clubhouse, which is a treasure!

There is a free lending library full of books (incl Hardback!)

They have an excellent & friendly staff. It's a lovely historic building. And more!

The staff that manage the grounds are friendly & take great care of your surroundings.

And another reason we'd rather be in Puamana than nearly anywhere on the can walk to town. It's a great 1.2 mile walk to the Banyan Tree, and we go beyond. The walk is safe, includes amazing things to see: the ocean, lovely homes, flowers, and more.

Use their Maui Revealed book for exploring!

On an earlier trip we stayed in an adjacent unit.We were lucky to meet the owners. It was nice to share this family home with lovely people.

Wow! Magnificent View. Wonderful Location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are so happy we found such a terrific beachfront “home away from home.” We stayed here for two-weeks and everything was great. From the three pools, including one literally in the ocean, to miles of beach, and common areas. The location is ideal right at the beginning of Lahaina. We walked to Lahaina town, ate amazing meals, and savored beautiful sunsets. The condo itself has a beachfront patio just beyond the living room, contemporary furnishings reflecting an elegant Maui style. From the bedroom your view is the island of Lanai and further down you can see the island of Molokai. This is truly island living at its best!

We return here every year!

  • 5 of 5

My family has enjoyed Puamana for many years, it is truly a special spot, and we just love staying in 46-3. This unit has obviously had many recent upgrades, and it looks beautiful. It's the perfect home away from home, so comfortable and the best place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets privately. The view here is unbelievable, better than a postcard. This unit is unique in that it has a spacious oceanfront backyard which is so much fun for our family. We had a BBQ dinner outside on our last night and it was the highlight of our trip! We can't wait to come again next year. Mahalo and Aloha!

Fabulous - Paradise Found - Dialed in interior!

  • 5 of 5

46-3 is Awesome - the owners just completed a beautiful update with new flooring, window coverings, painting, finishes and appointments. Now this oceanfront home not only enjoys a one of kind 30 feet from the water location with spectacular ocean, sunset, lanai, Lahaina Harbor, boats, cruise ships VIEWS but it’s also DIALED IN on the interior. Many return guests book this home year after year just for the amazing location, spectacular setting on the water and great price they treasure a vacation just steps from the romantic historic clubhouse and "in the ocean" oceanfront pool. Now with the recent update this little home is an oceanfront paradise! Book it now before it fills up.

Terrible unit with a great view....

  • 1 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have come to Puamana however the first time in this unit. You are obviously paying only for the view and location as the unit is in very poor condition. Virtually nothing is updated and mostly everything is in worn out. Neither was it clean plus very poorly outfitted. The kitchen cabinets are terribly inconvenient for accessing dishes etc and all the kitchen equipment is the absolute cheapest used garbage the owners? could buy or find. There was virtually no first day starter supplies such as salt, pepper, sugar, coffee or tea, no spices at all and the pots were terrible! To clean the pots they provided one scrubby sponge and considering everything burns in these cheap thin metal pots they should of at least provided an sos pad. The microwave was toy size and took up half of the little counter space provided. There is only airconditioning in the bedroom so the main areas can get quite hot in the evening. The bathrooms are super old and all fixtures look like they are the originals from 1968 when this complex was built. The towel holders and toilet paper holders were falling off the wall, the linens and bed coverings, drapes were ratty and old and even had tears in them that someone tried to sew up. On top of all this we ran into at least a dozen cockroaches in the unit which really freaked out my wife. It felt like the objective of the owners were to suck as much money as they could out of any suckers willing to rent their unit and give absolutely the worst value in return. We were also subjected to 2 weeks of noise and interruption of our privacy as the unit exterior was being power washed and painted the whole time we were there. We were told (only after we had already paid for our unit in full) that there would be painters there on our last day, This was false, I can't remember the last time I felt so ripped off! We will never stay in this unit again. Puamana is a fabulous complex and this is the first time we have had such a bad experience. We will make sure to be more careful when booking next time. Whalers realty was sympathetic with our situation and sent us over a nice gift basket to try and appease us which was much appreciated. Hopefully someday someone else will buy this unit and present it properly!

Owner's Response: My sincere apologies the owners received your review and have made numerous improvements to the property. It is now a beautiful well appointed oceanfront property. Of course it is a one bedroom thus the appliances are not the size found in full size homes and the AC is in the bedroom only to assist on hot summer nights as advertised. We have had numerous guests stay since the improvements finding it to be a wonderful oceanfront property and value. Thank you for your suggestions and advice.
