Ocean's Paradise

Aloha and E Komo Mai!

If you're looking for the right place to stay on Maui, consider our newly purchased (and remodeled) home in Puamana Community. The beauty of leaving your neighborhood, flying to this island, and staying in Puamana is that you end up somewhere new that also feels like home. The home is a very large 2 bedroom 2.5 bathroom 1500 sq ft space with a reverse floor plan and a upper grand room with views of the ocean! This open floor plan is great for spending time with the whole family and making memories that last a lifetime!

The folks who live in this spacious, secure, 30-acre complex are a peaceful mix of residents and visitors. Those you meet are likely to smile and nod, even if they've never seen you before, and then once they've seen you, you'll feel like family!

Your quiet, clean townhouse will give you the private relaxation you crave, but the gorgeous common areas are what really set Puamana apart. Once you're ready to venture out of your personal honeymoon suite, you will love exploring together and taking full advantage of the amenities. (And if you’re here for a wedding or a family trip with the kids tagging along, so much the better!)

The common areas are elegant, unique, and honestly delightful. When was the last time you swam in a pool that didn't just overlook the ocean, but seemed to be a part of it? One of Puamana's three pools is reserved for quiet rest and relaxation, and it sits literally on the edge of the sea. As you cut through the silent water, watch the ocean waves hit the shore just below, and take in the view of the islands across the channel, you may feel pleasantly transformed. Make sure to stretch out for awhile on the lounge chairs, like an exotic cat. (Well, a mostly hairless cat wearing reef-safe sunscreen and a hat!)

If you enjoy reading fiction as much as you like imagining it, you are sure to love Puamana's extensive lending library. This clean, comfortable, cozy room - positively brimming with books - is located in the Mediterranean-style Clubhouse, not far from the coastal pool. The darkened room is impeccably kept and organized alphabetically by author. (Are you excited, yet?) And if there's a title on your mind that you don't see on the shelves, Lahaina Town - boasting half of the island's four bookstores - is just a half mile away. Once you've absorbed your new literary finds, you needn't lug them home, either; simply add them to the library!

Puamana's larger pools, the Dolphin Pool and the Mountain Pool, are a bit inland. Everyone is welcome to splash and play here! The Dolphin Pool is accessible to all abilities, too; once you give prior notice to the manager, a portable poolside lift can bring you into the water with ease. Children can shout, run, and climb off some energy on the small play structure right next to these two pools. One of you can watch the little ones play, and another can lie back and float, running supervisory interference inside the chain-link fence. Maybe . . . flip a coin?

While spending time at Puamana, you can host a dinner party in the oceanfront gazebo, hit some balls on the tennis court, throw a frisbee on the expansive lawns, and work out in the exercise room (or at least consider it; this is a vacation, after all!). If you'd prefer ocean spray on your face and sand between your toes, Puamana's shoreline invites exploration. Pick your way among coral rubble, stones, and driftwood, and watch for the whales in winter while gazing at the boats moored offshore. Whatever you choose to do, remember - you're on island time!

But what about island time gone by? This west side shoreline and the surrounding areas were originally called Kauapaupili, which translates to both "the rain stops here" and "mist that comes down from the mountain." Before the current complex completed construction in the late 1960s, the region was u ... [description continues on manager's site]...
