Beautiful Puamana 2 bed and 2 bath garden view located steps away from a semi-private sandy beach (unit 139-3). Our unit is new to the rental pool and has been mostly furnished with brand new everything. King bed in the private master suite. Upstairs loft is perfect for the kids with a queen bed, futon and TV with XBOX 360.
The kitchen is furnished with granite counter tops and opens to the living area.
The living area has a queen sofa bed and a brand new 50' plasma TV, Ipod & Ipad docking Station and DVD/blueray player.
Walk outside to a large private lanai with table, chairs and barbeque.

We are Kevin and Michelle from Vancouver, Canada. Our two kids are Thomas and Stefanie and we have been coming as a family to Puamana every year since 2011.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011
Michelle travelled to Puamana as a child several times. She told us that it was the most amazing place you could ever go and in 2011 when we were between jobs we decided to make a month long trip of it. We made the decision to by and the rest is history. We've been coming back every year since.
Its rare to find a gated community on Maui and we love that our young kids can roam the grounds in a sage enviroment.
I arrived with my In-laws and was hoping to give them a sweet experience. However it all diminished with this stay.
Few areas of concern as listed below.
1) Entrance there are leaves that have outgrown and blocks the passage. Hit my wife while she was walking.
2) The Master Bedroom is good but the Toilet does not even have a door. That's a Red Flag for hygiene reasons and a trouble for whoever staying alongside.
3) The upper level room seems claustrophobic and the AC's needs maintenance and a Filter change.
4) Internet never worked at all .
Overall this experience was my worse experience ever and would definitely not rely on photos anymore. Also the Owner was not co-operative . I was willing to give up one night stay rent and was hoping to switch to some other accomodation but he never replied to any of my emails or calls.
Would never come here again..
One agonized Reviewer...
This was a wonderful holiday and our accommodations were suburb. We had everything we needed including diving shoes, paddle boards etc. We found Puamana a central location for our daily trips to sights on the island. We can hardly wait to go back next year to this unit.
We loved staying in this unit!!! It is centrally located, completely remodeled, the kitchen is furnished with everything you need to put together a great meal. The Shower in the bathrooms were awesome! We love Puamana! This is our tenth time!
This unit is very nice BUT when the tile cutters are going next door and the carpenter is cutting wood during work hours it is not very restful. We leave this weekend and I pity the folks arriving after us especially if they have toddlers like we did for one week. Our complaints bought us a couple of hours of peace one day. No heads up or any offer of a discount was disappointing. On Saturdays and Sundays it was great and Puamana is a great place to stay if they are not renovating next door
It gets 1 star due to construction but when quiet would be a 5 star
This exceeded our expectations, fully equipped, beautifully decorated. 15 minute walk to lahaina, I can't imagine a better place to stay. My only complaint and it is not a huge issue, was there was not bedding included for the fold out couch. We definitely hope to be back soon! Thank you for opening up your home.
We spent 2 wonderful weeks at this great facility. The unit was exactly as described in the listing description and photos. The unit was very clean and well maintained. It is a very short walk to the nice sandy semi private beach and to one of the 3 swimming pools. Our favourite is the ocean side pool. We took the short walk into Lahaina several times. Lahaina has lots of shops to wander through and many restaurants to try. We hope to return again some day.
