Birthday Fun on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We have used several units in Puamana and I have to say 177-1 is one of our favorites. The unit is very well laid out and the space is easy to use. The kitchen is great and there is a lot of stuff for the cooking and even some extras that we didn't have to oil/salt-pepper/garlic salt. Two types of grills..gas and charcoal so no worries for grilling. They had Netflix and plenty of beach stuff. The kicker was laundry soap. Thank you for a great week.

Lovely property in a noisy location

  • 2 of 5

The property description is generally accurate, the condition of the property immaculate, the amenities as described and extensive (with the exception of the clubhouse being closed and tented the day after we arrived) and the information provided by the owner very helpful. The complex in which the unit was located is attractive and well kept.

The major item missing from the description, the pictures and, very surprisingly, from the existing reviews is the immediately proximity (the back yard abuts against it) to a very busy two-lane highway. In addition, two adjacent units are being renovated making the noise level unbearable. The noise level from adjacent traffic from early morning to late at night makes it literally impossible to enjoy neither the back nor the front yard or to open any windows in the back of the house (even without construction noise). The renovations next door will eventually be finished, but the highway noise is a constant.

As a result, we only spent two of the 8 nights we had booked at this location - the noise level was just too disturbing.

For anyone used to a very high level of urban traffic noises, these conditions may not be an issue but, for anyone else, I would not recommend this unit.

Owner's Response: Perhaps Puamana / West Maui is not suitable for your vacation expectations. 90% of the Puamana’s 150 properties are within 300 feet of Honoapiilani Coastal highway which brings varying degrees of traffic noise for everyone in Puamana. The beauty of Puamana Is that 90% of the properties are also 300 feet from the Pacific Ocean Beachfront with a great view of Lainai Island and magnificent Mountain View of the West Maui Mountains if you look in opposite direction. That is if you if you decide to bring your attention to these magnificent views. West Maui is not for everyone the same Honoapiilani Coastal highway hugs the Coast line for about 5 miles Up thru Lahaina and Kaanapali to afford some degree of traffic noise to everyone that visits West Maui. Yes this happening Paradise Community comes with a busy Coastal Highway. Maybe Hana, Maui, Hawaii would a suitable beach vacation destination if you want virtually no traffic noise

Puamana Home

  • 5 of 5

Hello all,

My family & I recently stayed at this townhome for 7 days and absolutely loved it. Gated community with clubhouse, tennis courts and pools. Owners are great to work with and provided all items needed in advance of the stay, plus checked in to confirm all was well.

The house itself was perfect, very clean with all of the necessary amenities and great kitchen area. There is your own private beach with a nice lawn up to the sand & water. A swell came in and we scored nearly perfect 6-8 foot waves for 2 days with only a few people out. Downtown Lahaina has many tourists, so having your own private beach to share with a few folks is heavenly. Great views. The people living or staying in this community are very nice and welcoming. Located about a 1/4 mile from downtown Lahaina, you can walk or jog downtown, many shops and restaurants are close- great location! All described in the ad were true & more.

We highly recommend staying at this Puamana home, we had a fantastic time and would stay there again.

Enjoy from California.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for a week at this immaculate property. It was absolutely perfect - we had everything we could possibly need for a wonderful vacation.

The location was perfect, the rooms beautifully furnished. We felt so welcome at the home and in the gated

community. We had stayed at condos before but this far surpassed are previous experiences as every little detail was considered - we had a welcome packet, local contact, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms, boogie boards, snorkel gear, cooler, beach towels, even a first aid kit.

As mentioned in previous posts, the highway is behind the home and I could hear cars driving on the road when I was in the master bedroom but this did not bother or distract me in anyway.

Would highly recommend for anyone.

We were in Lahaina for the Maui Invitational (Rock Chalk Jayhawks!) and loved:

Longhis (brunch)

Cheeseburger in Paradise (great burgers after the game + best mai tai I had during the week!)

808 Grindz - GREAT local place for breakfast

Aloha Mixed Plate - ate here twice- for loco dishes and had to stop for grilled cheese sandwiches to go for the ride to airport:)

Lahaina Fish Co - excellent fresh seafood & service

Maui Tacos

Hawaiian Shaved Ice - so good!

We enjoyed the Feast at Lele Luau (definitely a one time thing though)

Besides basketball, we enjoyed beach hopping, boogie boarding, snorkeling - we saw a HUGE sea turtle:)!, The Road to Hana (definitely go all the way around!) and shopping - it was Black Friday after all:)!

Thanks K.T. and Maria - we will be back!
