This was our 2nd stay at Puamana and we spent considerably more money this trip hoping for decent accommodations as our last stay was substandard. We were sadly disappointed in the condition of this unit. The view was spectacular but the unit was barely acceptable as far as cleanliness and functionality. The fans in both the bedroom and living area did not work properly and the sliding glass door in the bedroom would not open, thus the unit was very hot and we could not stand to be in the unit. There was only one wine glass, 2 water glasses and minimal silverware when we arrived. The unit was not very clean and a coat of dust was evident on all ledges, fan paddles, and surfaces. We had to pull out the drawers of the bedroom dresser to remove particles and dust them out before we could put our clothes in them. Ants were climbing up the wall in the kitchen and both bathrooms (we went through a full can of Raid during our stay). After 2 calls to maintenance a repairman came and fixed the fans and the bedroom slider and brought us some more glasses. If he had not been so responsive we would not have been able to stay. A few days into our stay, while we were asleep, a 2-inch cockroach crawled across my wife in the middle of the night causing us to jump up and scramble around the room to kill it. The next night a cockroach crawled up my hand to my face causing us to again jump up and repeat the previous night's scramble. It took 2 days before Terminex came out to spray the exterior of the unit. That was it! After 2 bad experiences at Puamana, we will never be returning!
My family of four stayed at this unit over spring break. The unit sits about 20 feet from the shore, and the views of the Island of Lanai and the Lahaina marina are amazing. The unit has a large lanai with a table for four and a few lounge chairs. We basically spent all of our time on this lanai. While the unit has a table and four chairs inside, we ate most of our meals on the porch. I was able to watch multiple whales breach while I sipped my coffee every morning. I actually saw more whales from the lanai than I did on the whale watching boat trip we took.
We spent our days walking into the Lahaina shopping district, visiting local beaches, and exploring the island. When we returned home in the evening, I would grab a book and watch the sunset from the comfort of one of the lounge chairs on the lanai. The unit has an A/C unit, but we never used it. We preferred to open the windows and allow the sound of the waves to lull us to sleep at night.
Our kids slept on the fold-out sofa. It seemed new and I believe it is queen sized. Our kids have slept on several fold-out sofas during our travels and they thought this one was one of the best. There is a hall closet to store the living room guest's luggage out of sight, and a full sized closet in the master bathroom. This unit has two full bathrooms which was a nice bonus when trying to get four people ready each day. The kitchen is nice and the unit has a washer and dryer (which is helpful when travelling with kids).
We have stayed at other units in Puamana, and while some of them had more bedrooms, this unit is one of the closest to the ocean and frankly, our desire to be by the ocean is why we go to Hawaii. So, as long as our kids are willing to sleep on a fold-out, we would definitely return to this unit.
You absolutely cannot beat this view.
This trip was just me and my fiancé and we had a blast! The condo has its own more private gated parking, it's RIGHT on the ocean and right down the street from the town. We did a lot of fishing off the back porch and had a turtle that liked to stay pretty close by. The view was amazing and we can't wait to go back!
Management: only thing we needed that wasn't provided was a can opener, but we managed :)
This is a beautiful property literally on the west shore of Lahaina. The property is steps from the ocean. The ocean view is directly west and Lanai is in the background, with the Lahaina Harbor ships and Molokai to the north. The colorful sunsets are spectacular.
The first night took some getting used to the roar of the ocean, but the following nights we must have gotten used to the waves and came to appreciate them as they put us to sleep.
This unit location on the north side of the Puamana property and is very quiet with a feel of seclusion. There is an adult pool located on the ocean as well and offers a beautiful panoramic view of Lanai and Lahaina Harbor while sunning and swimming.
This unit has one bedroom and a sleeper couch. We had four in our group and we stayed for a week. Due to the size of our crew, we had to be mindful of keeping our gear packed up and out of the way. We spent our mornings on the porch / lanai enjoying daybreak and coffee and the views, and did our island sightseeing during the day, so we did not spend the majority of our time in the unit.
As for the proximity to Lahaina and all the shops and restaurants, we enjoyed our walks into town – they made us feel like a part of the local community. We recommend this unit and will stay there again. Thank you.
Aloha, I am the manager for this property and am shocked that this guest didn't highlight the special features about this property or contact us to repair the AC before slamming this beautiful property.
We have had dozens up guests enjoy this property since starting management last year. The furnishings are all new, the kitchen and baths are both updated. We have checked the AC and secured it to prevent any further vibration. Its a fabulous oceanfront setting with spectacular sunsets year round, views of the Lahaina Harbor, very private and quiet. If you coming to Hawaii to be cold best change your plans. Lahaina offers year round sunshine you will need to get your bathing suit on, buy a pair of slippers, sun glasses, sunscreen and jump in the ocean or any of Puamana's three pools during the hottest times of the day.
The view and location is unbeatable. However , This unit is old and run down except the kitchen. There is no air conditioning in the living room. The A/C in the bedroom works very well - but is very loud so good luck sleeping with a jet engine in your room. The unit catches afternoon sun and bakes up
To about 95 I in the unit WITH NO CROSS BREEZE IN LAHAINA SO IT DOESNT COOL
OFF OVER NIGHT. Don't expect a restful relaxing and pleasant vacation if you stay here. You will not be able to sleep at night because the air conditioner will keep you awake during the day that heat will soak you and rob you of your energy. The unit needs to be updated insulated and air-conditioned. I would suggest you stay away unless you enjoy stifling hot temperatures and energy robbing sweltering conditions.
