From the perspectives of location, convenience, and quintessential beach living, Puamana in Lahaina, Maui sets the standard. A gated community with an exclusive resort lifestyle feel, on 30 spacious acres of lush, low density oceanfront property. This charming, quaint, and never before offered 1 bed/2 bath townhome with ocean and island views (MLS# 367124) provides for the ultimate beach lovers retreat.
View of Hot Sands surf break from the front deck. Ocean and Lanai in the distance. Whales in the winter.
Centrally situated and yet privately secluded, Unit #129-2 is a special type of place within a special type of place...a once in a lifetime opportunity. Located on the southern end of Front Street, just outside Lahaina Town's world-famous shops, restaurants, and entertainment center.
In original condition, allows for multiple options for renovating. Keep original or build up?
Puamana is comprised of 60 free-standing vastly spread out townhome buildings with direct ocean and beach access throughout the neighborhood...not to mention inclusive amenities such as 3 pools, tennis, badminton and bocce courts, a fitness center, and beautiful oceanfront clubhouse with green space and gazebo area.
The oversized front deck is one of the unique features that greet you immediately as you walk on the property
What Sets Unit #129-2 Apart?
Well first off, it's never been offered for sale before. Why? Well, its owners have been in such love with the property's distinctive qualities that they've held on to it for themselves for the past 46 years! Yes, 46 years. A sentimental trophy property because, plainly put, these are not readily available anymore...And as they say..."location, location, location."
Hardwood laminate floors, open living room, sold fully furnished
From the beginning back in 1968, these owners had their pick of any 1-bedroom south of the stream, and while other units had a better view or were closer to the ocean, this unit was selected considering several factors and blending them together...not just "this thing or that thing," but several major "value propositions" that only a strong Puamana familiarity and understanding would provide.
New appliances were installed in 2007. Near to original cabinets and countertops.
Yes, the obvious qualities like:
1) Ocean and island views (from ground level). I'm here to say that this is one of the best ocean/island views (if not the best) of any non-oceanfront building.
2) Breezes...Lahaina translated in English means "relentless sun," and you could say it is generally a dryer, warmer place than most parts of the island. This building location, how it sits from back to front, North to South, opens up to trade wind breezes other buildings do not.
Bedroom leading to lanai, complete with ensuite. Sold as furnished.
Another #129-2 positive consideration...
3) Central location: benefits are easy access in and out of the neighborhood, easy access to the beach, easy access to the pools and amenities, and most importantly...the central location lessens the noise impact from the Honoapiilani Hwy.
Can You Say Privacy?
While this unit sits on Pualei Drive, mature 1968 plantings adorn the front deck landscape creating a private viewing seclusion virtually unaffected by what's going on out front. From outside of the building, looking to the porch, it's nearly impossible to see anyone on the deck. The extended and covered back lanai areas have an array of tall, tropical trees with open green space creating your own sanctuary as the waves crash and birds chirp their tunes in the background.
Guest bathroom leading from the living room: equipped with full size bath tub
