Puamana #129-2: Unparalleled Location, First Time Offering

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.

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.”

Puamana 129-2 Living Room

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.

Puamana 129-2 Bedroom

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.

My team and I specialize in resort market home and condominium sales striving to deliver the highest level of professional service possible.

I bring a passionate energy, an entrepreneurial understanding and a client-first approach to my real estate business. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I was an independent publisher, starting and operating Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Real Estate Weeklies, Maui Time Weekly (partner), and in 2005, I was a Mayors Small Business Award finalist. In 2009, after seeing the demand and living in an under serviced pet market, alongside my Mom, Susan we opened West Maui Pet Supply. I started my career after college as an account executive with Orlando Weekly ultimately becoming their Advertising Director. Then I moved on to Advertising Sales Manager at Orange County Weekly, in Southern California. I am native of Detroit, Michigan, but grew up in Florida splitting time between Miami, Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Fl. I was a scholarship soccer player at the University of Central Florida and graduated with a BA from their School of Communication. Always attracted to healthy lifestyle, adventure, great weather, water sports and the outdoors, I moved to Maui in the summer of 2002. When the Realtor hat comes off, I'm active in the community coaching U-14 Boys Soccer (AYSO - West Side Pride) and I still play in the West Maui open division. I'm involved along with other fellow Hawaii Life comrades volunteering regularly at the Ka Hale A Ke Ola Shelter in West Maui and I'm on the Board of the Hawaii Life Charitable Fund. Through the outlet of the WM Pet Supply, I was heavily involved with the Maui Humane Society & ASCPA getting animals adopted & spayed/neutered. When I have free time you'll find me surfing, golfing, at the gym, a regular at yoga class, hanging at home with my animals or working in the backyard on my organic micro-farm (aka: food garden).
