Space 1,900 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

You will love our beautifully remodeled 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with the Pacific Ocean and beautiful palm trees right outside your back door. Enjoy spectacular ocean views and sunsets, and beautiful West Maui mountain views as well. You are just steps away from beach access to Puamana Beach where you can swim, snorkel, boogie board, surf or just play in the waves. You are also walking distance to downtown Lahaina, or just use one of our bikes that we share with our guests.

Sit outside and enjoy the view and ocean breezes from either the downstairs lanai ,the beautiful upstairs deck off the master bedroom or from your own hammock. The views are spectacular.

There is a king bed in the master bedroom facing the ocean, a queen bed in the second bedroom on the mountain side, and a third bedroom with views of the ocean and mountains with a king bed and a twin bed. (The king can be converted to two twin beds, for a total of three twin beds in the upstairs bedroom.) There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room on the first floor.

The beautiful butcher block table in the large gourmet kitchen makes a perfect and inviting gathering place for friends and family. You will find all the comforts of home here.

If you have never been to Puamana, you will want to return year after year as we did. Puamana is a beautiful, gated oceanfront community on 30 acres of lovingly maintained tropical grounds. There are three swimming pools (including one right on the ocean), tennis and badminton courts, a restored plantation home/club house, and large grassy open spaces overlooking the ocean, with hammocks for lounging in the sun. And Puamana is a well-known surf spot that residents can access right from the property!

Great shopping, souvenir collecting and outdoor activities are all nearby. Being so close to downtown Lahaina and so many great beaches and activities is of particular interest to many of our guests.

Maui weather is generally nice all year round, and Lahaina is known as the 'sunniest' part of the island. And because Puamana is on the west shore, the sunsets are spectacular!

Whether you come to Maui and Puamana for their beauty and serenity, or for all the wonders and activities they have to offer, you won't be disappointed. Feel free to email for more information or to check availability. We look forward to your stay. Mahalo.

We are also listed on vrbo 122502.

About Jacqueline Marcus

My husband and I grew up in the Midwest, but we have always loved water, especially the ocean. Ever since our honeymoon in Maui, we found ourselves drawn back to this beautiful island as often as possible.

Jacqueline Marcus purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Jacqueline Marcus chose Lahaina

With three boys in tow, we explored the island and stayed at many different resorts and townhomes through the years -- in Kihea, Kahana, Kaanapali, Wailea and Kapalua, but we knew we found our home when we chanced upon the breathtakingly beautiful Puamana development in Lahaina. We all fell in love. We found ourselves coming back year after year, so one year we decided to invest in our own Maui Beach Home.

What makes this townhome unique

We hope you allow us to share our home with you -- we will toss in the sunsets in the hammock, the surfing right off the lanai, the stargazing from the master bedroom lanai, and all the beauty and serenity that Maui has to offer. David and Jacqueline Marcus, Santa Rosa, CA

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are thrilled to be on Maui and enjoying your beautiful condo. We took your advice and watched some shooting stars from the upper deck last night. Beautiful!

We noticed there were some paddle boards and surfboards in the carport. Are we able to use them? (Jacqueline's response: Unfortunately not, but I was able to give them great places to pick them up.)

Peaceful and romantic beach house paradise

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here after graduating graduate school together. It was the most perfect place we could have ever imagined. When we first walked into the front door we were impressed by the open kitchen with full appliances and spacious counter space, which served us well for hosting and cooking large intricate meals. The living quarters were clean, comfortable and homey. Every single night, we blended a homemade cocktail made from fresh mangos we picked from the trees on the property, and would walk over to the oceanfront pool to watch the sunsets. They were absolutely breathtaking! We peacefully slept to the smells and sounds of the waves through our open patio door and in the morning we would pedal the provided cruiser bikes into Lahaina to dine and explore the shops. Everyone is so friendly there, we wish we could've stayed longer.

There's every activity that you can imagine doing in Hawaii relatively close by: we went snorkeling, surfing, shopping, hiking, luaus, you name it!

This place is truly magical. The home was clean and comfortable, we really had no issues and the owner even called to ensure our stay was going well. There is also wifi, AC, and a BBQ. Overall, this beachhome was perfect, everything we could've imagined and more.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us and with other guests. Sounds like you took full advantage of wonderful thngs Lahaina and Puamana have to offer. We were so happy to have shared our home with you and your friends for your special celebration. And thank you for reminding me about the mangoes. I always forget about asking the Puamana office for the "picker." We will definitely do that next time we are there. Kipa hou mai. Please come visit again. Jacqueline & David

Stunning view of ocean and whale playground

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was very well designed for three couples, even providing enough room for an extra child or two, and a kitchen island large enough to double as a dining table for a group of fourteen. It was very clean, and everything was in good order, including the very comfortable hammock in the back yard. The upstairs bedroom overlooked a luxurious elevated patio and provided such a great location for whale watching that a boat tour would have been superfluous. The Lahaina business section, with its excellent shopping and eateries, was a pleasant walk from Puamana (location of our condo), so the only reason for a car rental would have been if guests wanted to drive to Hana, Kaanapali, Haleakala, or take a boat to Molokini for a snorkling adventure. We had seen all the sights on our first visit, so were very happy to forego all the driving and spend our entire week within walking distance. The owners were always very responsive and gracious via email. This was our second visit, and it was just as magical as the first time, for us as well as for the children.

Old run down read the reviews because they matter

  • 1 of 5

While the owners gave us early entry into the place the cleaning people and the owners clearly were not communicating because we had to come back later that evening. This place is for those that are trying to save money and don’t care about things being old out dated and broken. After requests to have the screens on the doors fixed nobody ever showers up. The fixtures are rusting the fans are dirty not dusted the ac units are wall mounted and the pictures are way more glamousous than the actual setting so renters beware. The best thing about the place was how close it was to the beach and the deck off the master suite. Other than this I️ unfortunately cannot day it was amazing. We ended up renting another place and only stayed 1 day out of 5. One last thing if you like private resorts or vacation stays this again is not your place to stay. The pool was 3/4 mile away the beach well it was not a Beach and the management was very rude. Bed were horrible hurt our backs the pools were not clean Older community as well I️ have rented several times on vrbo and this was not the best experience.

Owner's Response: PLEASE READ OWNER RESPONSES BECAUSE THEY MATTER AS WELL. These guest comments are inaccurate, mean spirited and do not at all reflect other comments he made to me over the phone about how great it. First, he and his children came to our home directly from a stay at a resort with a large lazy river pool with slides with drinks and food service poolside. The kids were not happy to have left their pool playground. They made that very clear to our manager while she was there cleaning. Second, the guest changed his date to arrive a day earlier than originally booked. Once he changed the date, I told him other guests were departing that morning, so he could not arrive until check-in at 3:00 PM. I EVEN GAVE HIM THAT EXTRA DAY FOR FREE BECAUSE IT WAS LAST MINUTE! He seems to have forgotten that and arrived mid-cleaning. He was happy when he called to ask if he could use our surfboards on Day 3. All of the regular beds are very comfortable, but one of the guests was using a sofa bed even though there were enough regular beds for their group unless the number of guests was different. Our home and Puamana are NOT run down, but just the opposite, as you can see from the photos and video on our site that were taken just three months ago. If you are looking for a Resort with daily maid service and umbrella drinks, Puamana is not the place for you. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WONDERFUL HOME AND LOCATION FOR A GREAT FAMILY STAY, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU.

Gorgeous 3 BR Oceanfront Home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous home to enjoy!!! Very clean, unlike previous reviews. We totally loved waking up to the beautiful view of the ocean. Great to have bikes to ride and assorted ocean toys to use.

We were there for our daughters wedding and couldn't have been more pleased with the location. Very close to Lahiana and the wedding reception. I would encourage anyone to

stay there. The hosts were great and even allowed us a late departure because another guest was not checking in that day. We thought the home was just amazing.

Thank you for a perfect vacation :0)
