My original desire was to book a private home for our family of six. We are typically too big for hotel rooms for more than a night or two. There are a lot of condo resorts on Maui, both high rise and spread out. Puunoa Estates 303 is very different from either.
It is in a VERY private gated community with a total of 10 units. 303 is the only unit managed by Whaler Realty. The other 9 are managed by an on-site manager. Most of them don't even rent out; the owners don't want the hassle or need the money.
303 is a three bedroom on the second and third floor of a 3 story unit. A two bedroom is on the first floor. The furniture and appointments are excellent. This unit isn't near a beach; it's on a beach. While the sand is only about 10 yards deep, you definitely can walk right out into ocean if you want to. "Baby beach" isn't much bigger anyway.
You are within two blocks of Lahaina town. That was our desire. We walked into town almost every day. You are 10 minutes from the beaches of Kaanapali, 20 minutes from Kapalua.
Don't expect the activities of Kaanapali or the on-site restaurants of a Kapalua. That's all in Lahaina. Just expect to feel like you are in your own private home on a beach in paradise
