Puunoa Beach Estates

Reviewed October 21, 2012

Our group of 6 just returned yesterday from 7 glorious nights in unit #205! My husband and I have been to Maui several times but always stayed in hotels either in Wailea or Kaanapali. We decided to rent this condo this time as we took our two grown sons and their significant other with us. The best decision ever! Literally, it was one of the best vacations in many, many years. The condo was centrally located...walking distance to Lahaina's front street, the luau, supermarket, snorkel rental and just a short drive (5mins) to Kaanapali's golf courses, shops and restaurants. The unit had everything you'd need for a week's stay, was tastefully decorated in Hawaiian motif, and just a stone's throw from the gentle waters of Baby Beach. The view was magnificent and we were blessed with 7 days of perfect weather. The pool/jacuzzi/BBQ area was great...we didn't see anyone else use this facility the entire time we were there. What a great place! We will be back!

This condo is ALL it is advertised to be. What a breathtaking view from the lanai (as in veranda). Per attached photo, Lanai island (aka pineapple/Oracle island) is the focus (to the left you would see sailboats). We walked right onto the beach and could even snorkel (lots of pretty coral but one needs a snorkel tour to get to the colorful sea life - turtles and fish).

The condo itself is beautiful and fully functional with plenty of cable flat screen TVs, free wifi, laundry, top notch kitchen and bathrooms. We especially love the ceilings. Larry (owner) and his local support team were great and very friendly.

This is perfect for those who want a wonderful place to stay on the West side of Maui and who like to be free to explore Maui at their own pace while enjoying a first rate, comfortable place to call home when not off on a nature walk, snorkel, zipline, parasail, sight-seeing, dining, etc. adventure around Maui.

Room Tip: This is on the second floor accessible via stairs. It is North of Lahaina (quaint little town with...

We have stayed here for 7 years at Thanksgiving; the location is great, walking distance to town, shopping close by, the beach is terrific, and the condos are large and spacious without everyone falling on eachother. Beautiful views, and a very quiet location make this place paradise for anyone.

I almost never leave a review on the internet but this property was so exceptional and so little known that I just had to take the time to leave my thoughts.

This is our third stay at Puunoa Beach. My family of five my wife and I and three adult children stayed at unit 205 late December. The unit was recently renovated with granite counter tops, travertine floors and new appliances. I am happy to say that the original Hawaiian Koa Wood cabinets were restored to their original finish rather than replaced. The owners added a "den" or third bedroom, with a queen bed... perfect for our oldest.

This property is right on the beach... I mean on-the-beach! The edge of the water is barely more than 60 feet from the lanai, 205 is on the second floor so we felt comfortable leaving the patio doors from the bedroom open at night to hear the sound of the surf.

The whole property only has 10 units and not all of them are available to rent. Paula and Toni share desk duties seven days a week to answer questions about beaches, things to do, restaurants to try.

I just can not say enough about this little piece of Paradise. Every unit is privately owned so I can't say how the rest of the units are furnished but this one 205 exceed our every expectation.

The beach estates were a perfect place for our vacation. 5 of us stayed in the 2 bedroom with loft condo (we were 5 adults). The condo was well appointed- all the bedrooms had bathrooms (including the loft) and there was ample space for everyone. The cleaning staff came on a daily basis and kept the place spotless!

We ate meals every day outside overlooking the ocean The kitchen was large and had all sorts of different appliances to make various foods. In addition there are two common BBQ's which we used frequently. There is a food store just down the street.

You literally are just steps from the beach. The beach is small but pristine- the water is shallow but was always calm and had great snorkeling. You are close by to Kanapaali and Kapalua if you want to see the resorts (about a ten minute drive) but you can walk into Lahaina in less than 5 minutes.

The pool area wasn't huge but still very nice and clean!

Also- the staff is wonderful and will help you plan your trip and answer all of your questions! Paula in the front office lent us all sorts of books etc to help us learn more about the Island and gave us great snorkeling trip recomendations.

Overall, we had a great trip there!!

Simply, the most luxurios condo that I have ever rented. Spectacular across the board: ocean front yet secluded, gated, high-end, lavishly furnished, flat screen TVs and DVDs, opulent bathrooms, complete amenities, pool, daily maid service, friendly concierges who satisfied every request, easy walking into Lahaina for shopping and restaurants, and stunning views. My family had the times of our lives! Can't wait to go back! Forget the nearby high-priced hotels; this is your ticket to paradise! Six stars!!!!!

First time on Maui was 4 years ago with just my wife and I staying in Wailea at the Fairmount Kia Lani, great hotel but this trip was with my daughter and son-in-law so we wanted a similar experience luxury wise but wanted to stay someplace where we could have a shared experience.

Puunoa Beach Estates filled the bill perfectly. After our first trip we found that most of the entertainment and really good restaurants are in or near Lahaina and Puunao Beach Estates is located a very short walking distance (.2 mi.) just down Front Street and the heart of Lahaina shops, attractions and restaurants.

This resort is small and exclusive, just 10 units total with magnificently manicured lawns bordered by a privacy hedge with a private baby beach just 20 feet from your lanai if your unit is on the lower level which ours was. We had one of the smaller units (1500 sq.ft.) master suite with a King and private bath and lanai, 2nd bedroom with a Queen and complete bath, full kitchen with every appliance including blender for making smoothies and even an ice maker yielding an unending supply of crystal clear ice for drinks. Maid service every day included.

Living room is huge with retractable doors that can opened completely to let in the breeze and with the waves so close its just like sitting on the beach. Power shades are raised or lower to either block out the hot afternoon sun or give a panorama for the sunsets over the island of Lanai which is just across the water. Morning coffee (cappuccino if desired) from the lanai watch whales surface and jump is an incredible experience not to be missed.

A Safeway is just a very short drive away at the Lahaina Cannery Mall but be ready for sticker shock if you plan to buy supplies to eat in and cook which is a great option, there are very nice gas grills located poolside if needed. We mostly ate out by design with the exception of one evening when we got a traditional ham and pineapple pizza from Lahaina Pizza Company and just sat on the lanai and watched the sun set.

Trust me if you are looking for a laid back exclusive Maui experience Puunao Beach Estates is your place.
