INTRODUCING THE "ZEN BUNGALOW" After a major renovation just a few months ago it's ready for all our guests to enjoy. A lot of hard word and we are very proud of the Zen, chic styling and comfort.... Zen is a state of being that produces serenity, calmness, and an overall state of satisfaction. Living this way will keep you balanced, happy, and able to enjoy the little things in life. The Zen Bungalow takes advantage of the nature around it to create this kind of experience. Maui is a magical place full of grandeur and natural beauty that compels you to go outside and explore. When done with the active days truly relax each night and enjoy the peace. The bungalow is FULLY REMODELED & UPDATED. It has 2 bedrooms and is located in an OCEAN FRONT property in Kahana. Many times of the year you can hear the surf crashing as you sleep or hang out on the lanai. BEACHES There are AMAZING beaches all over West Maui. It's really hard not to find one! Luckily we have 2 beaches within a 3-5 minute walk from the bungalow. Our favorite just north of us is pictured here as well as Kahana beach just to the south. Additionally there are over a dozen great beach areas you can explore within a 5-10 minute drive. NATURE People come to West Maui to relax and experience the amazing nature. Right off our seawall and the beaches nearby you will find "Honu" the giant green sea turtles. From early winter to late spring you will find the largest concentration of migrating humpback whales in the world. From our seawall you can see them offshore jumping high and splashing in the water. Additionally there are beautiful fish, manta rays, and many other beautiful sea creatures. LANAI & MOLOKAI The West Maui Channel runs right in front of our property with the backdrop being the islands of Lanai (to the south) and Molokai (just to the north). The views from the seawall of these islands are incredible. You can actually take day trips to either island from Lahaina (10-15 minutes) by boat. SUNSETS West Maui is known for their INCREDIBLE sunsets. Much of the year the sun sets directly between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. These sunsets rival any place on the planet and are meant to be enjoyed from our seawall area with Mai Thai's, wine, champagne, etc. It a truly spectacular experience that we encourage you do do each night if possible. If you are lucky you may even get to see a rare "green flash" as the sun dips beneath the horizon. BUNGALOW AMENITIES AND THE PROPERTY One of the unique things about our bungalow is that it's in a LOW DENSITY complex spread over 9 acres! You won't feel crowded or that people are all around you like in the typical Maui high-rise resorts. The place really feels more like a house with privacy and solitude. It is located in the Pohailani property which offers 2 pools, BBQ's, tennis, and lots of grass and local foliage including mango trees and apple bananas. It's really a gorgeous place! It is an OCEANFRONT complex that has great viewing areas for sunsets, whale watching, and ocean access. The unit has just been COMPLETELY remodeled and has been given a Zen/modern feel with bamboo hardwood floors, new stainless appliances, great lighting, new quartz counters, new bamboo cabinets, new wine refrigerator, beautiful glass tile shower, in-unit laundry, and a fully equipped kitchen with a gourmet range hood. We have designed it to have an OPEN/MODERN floor plan so it's truly indoor/outdoor living. One of the bedrooms brings in the outside with a custom loft-like open design where you can watch the stars from your bed at night and feel the breeze through the window. The beds are set up for comfort in mind with the 5 Star rated Sealy Copelin TI, Euro Pillowtop mattress and wonderful linens. We also can arrange a nice rollaway bed (if needed). Since the unit is on the bottom floor the lanai flows out directly into the lush open 1 ACRE grass area, tropical plantings, and is steps from the pool. These buildings are set up as bungalow style with only 2 units per building with lots of grass and plantings between them. It's incredibly private and serene. OUTDOOR DINING We have a custom built redwood table that is designed like a dining table rather than just a patio table (for up to 6). Here you will find fun, romantic, family gatherings where you can enjoy your meals and drinks (Mai Tai's highly recommended) any time of day. From the table you can see the stars, watch the kids playing on the grass, and often here the crash of the waves against the sea wall. TECHNICAL COMFORTS If you are looking to have the technological comforts we have a 55' Led 1080 HDTV that is equipped with a blue-tooth soundbar that you can play your iPhone/iPad directly into wirelessly. We also have high-speed wireless internet, and a Blu-Ray player with a built in Netflix account where you can view movies and other programming for free. IDEAL LOCATION The bungalow is located about 1/2 way between Kaanapali (2 miles away) and Kapalua (2 miles away) and is minutes from Lahaina and all the attractions and outdoor activities of West Maui. Surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, golf, and some of the best beaches on Maui are here. This is truly one of the best locations in West Maui! GREEN-ECO FRIENDLY We believe in trying to be eco-friendly and thus use a local cleaning company to service our property between uses. You can be sure that it will be clean, natural, and as hypo-allergenic as possible upon your arrival. WEATHER Generally you can count on the most pleasant weather on the whole island in West Maui. Nice trade winds and temperatures that average about 72F in winter/fall and 78-85F in spring/summer during the day. The bungalow has multiple ceiling fans and a new A/C wall unit to help on the warmer days. Normally the nights cool down nicely and are spectacular. BEST VALUE ON WEST MAUI If you are looking for the privacy and serenity of a private home without the huge price tag...this is the place for you! Inquire about long-term rental discounts.
