Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 6

Our unit was extensively remodeled in 2007 with modern amenities and recently redecorated in 2012 with a Balinese sensibility. The condo features cherry cabinets, granite countertops and stainless appliances in the kitchen, travertine tile, jetted tub and new vanity in the bathroom, custom shoji screens and sustainable bamboo flooring throughout. We have furnished the condo with a new king size bed in bedroom 1, queen size bed in bedroom 2, new and custom-refinished furniture, teak cabinetry and many pieces of original artwork. A queen sleeper sofa with a comfortable memory foam mattress (new in Nov 2014) provides accommodations for an additional two people.

The kitchen is well equipped for that gourmet meal with every conceivable appliance and tool. A new stainless dishwasher was added in 2013. The unit also has a 42” flat screen TV, Blueray/DVD/CD player, wireless internet, and phone. Though the unit is kept cool by the afternoon breezes, the living area and both bedrooms are air conditioned. Bedroom 1 and the living room are also equipped with ceiling fans. A kayak, paddleboard, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs umbrella and coolers are also available for use by our guests.

Pohailani Maui is a small, intimate complex of 114 units located in Kahana, about 10 minutes north of Lahaina. If you are looking for a quiet location to be your temporary home on Maui, away from the busy resort areas while providing easy access to all of West Maui, this is it! The lush and well-landscaped complex is made up of small, two-unit buildings for maximum privacy. Mango and other flowering trees as well as many tropical plants abound. The complex boasts not one, but two recently retiled swimming pools and two new barbecue grills. And, of course, Kahana Beach is directly across the street. At the end of the day enjoy a cocktail on the spacious lanai.

The condo is convenient to all that West Maui has to offer. Maui’s finest beaches, excellent snorkeling, hiking, golf, and sailing opportunities, as well as the historic and exciting city of Lahaina are all a short drive away. The waters off this region are the winter home of humpback whales, which can often be spotted close to shore. The complex is within walking distance of several excellent restaurants and a few minutes drive of many others.

We hope you will choose our unit as your home while on Maui and enjoy all the island has to offer.

Why Todd Christenson chose Maui

We love Hawaii and have visited several times. After considering numerous properties on different islands we were thrilled to find this one on Maui. The location, near the beach, town and the sites of west Maui is excellent and we loved the decor.

What makes this condo unique

This upgraded unit is one of the finest on the property and we have equipped it with everything you will need to enoy your stay on Maui. The property is located across the street from the beach and within a few minutes drive of Lahaina and Ka'anapali. The unit is also well situated to take advantage of all of the sites of West Maui.

Could be more satisfied

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with a vacation rental, we usually stay in very nice 4 star hotels but this was far superior. Let me say this condo was AMAZING! If I ever return to Maui this is where I would stay. Not only was it a perfect fit for our family of 5, everything we needed was included (snorkle equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs). It is in an excellent location (very close to old Lahaina and many nice beaches). It also is so beautiful if you want to stay in for a day, you get a cool breeze through the home which makes it very relaxing. The cleaning crew keeps it immaculate. Having everything we needed to cook and do laundry was a plus. Also Todd was quick to respond to any questions and issued our deposit refund days after we departed (he was very friendly). The condo has travel guides that were also very helpful since this was our first trip to Maui. Everyone in my family was very impressed with our stay here! Couldnt be happier!

Great Holiday at Kahana, Maui

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful, quiet condo for 1 week and found it perfect for our needs. The unit is very modern and it has everything you need. The beds are amazingly comfortable. We found the location very handy for exploring all that West Maui has to offer - the beach close by has some of the best snorkeling I have done in comparison to my two other visits to the island. There are really good restaurants nearby and Maui Brewery is within a 10 miniute walk (a great selection of beer). Finally, Todd was first class to deal with in every way. We would definitely recommend Unit 151 for anyone planning their vacation.

A month in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Spending a month in Maui allowed us the opportunity to really get to know what the island is about. We had never booked a place through VRBO so we were a little apprehensive, but our prior communication with Todd gave us confidence that the Pohailani unit would meet our expectations. As other people have mentioned, the unit has pretty much everything you can possibly need to get you started. The furnishings are comfortable and the layout allows for a relaxed tropical vacation. Having the pool right outside the backdoor was a special surprise. Todd graciously allows the use of his personal beach toys such as snorkel gear, beach chairs, paddle board and kayak. The unit is across the road from the ocean where there is a small entrance to slip the paddle board or kayak into the water. This is quite convenient since you don't have to transport either via car. One of our favorite places to go was Napili Beach which was just up the road. We loved having Sunday breakfast at the Seahouse Restaurant overlooking the water. Thank you, Todd. We loved your Hawaiian home.

We loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Pohailani. The house came stocked with everything you would need: beach towels, cooler, beach equipment etc. The kitchen along with the furnishings were very nice as well. The grounds are well kept and very relaxing. Sunsets were beautiful and just a short minute walk to the ocean. BBQ was within easy access as well.

If you are staying here, make sure that you stop at the store to get some laundry detergent and dryer sheets. We got some from the Whalers store down the street and it was very expensive.

This place is conveniently located even if it isn't on a beach front property. Check out Fleming's beach just 5 minutes away. Miso Phat was a great sushi spot just within walking distance too. Lahaina is a quick drive as well as Ka'anapali beaches.

We would stay here again in a heart beat and the price was great too!
