Oceanfront

Who Wants to Live in a Coastal Oasis on Maui?

Located in the gated oceanfront community of Puamana on Maui with loads of amenities (think pools, a library, gym, and a heritage clubhouse with frequent social gatherings), there are so many things to like about 111 Pualei Drive #2. It is located right across from the main beach access and can even do a surf check while sitting on your couch!

111-2 is a recently rebuilt 3 bedroom, 3 bath townhome, steps from the ocean, with ocean views from the living room and upstairs bedrooms. Plus there are only 2 condos in the 111 building! This is a very popular vacation rental as you can watch the kids in the Dolphin pool and keep an eye out when they head to the ocean… sometimes sandy and sometimes rocky… as you can see by my photos and video…

111-2 is second best to oceanfront… For those of you who have experienced Puamana, you know about the three surf spots out front, 30 acres of tropical gardens with three swimming pools, one oceanfront! (Read my Puamana guide here.)

111 Pualei Drive #2, featured in Christie’s International Real Estate, has one of the best locations in the complex for families. The back patio, shaded with tropical greenery, is perfect for grilling steaks, watching kids in the pool, and stowing beach gear and bikes. This townhouse is right in front of the Dolphin Pool, which is great for families, yet built with double-paned glass and insulation in case you want to keep the happy sounds out.

111-2 was torn down to the dirt and completely rebuilt with new everything in 2010. The living room, side patio, and upstairs bedrooms all turn toward the ocean and sunsets. The owners purchased 186 square feet of common grounds and made the best possible use of the footprint. The split AC system was upgraded in 2020, and the interior design was refreshed this year as well.

111-2 Pualei Drive is in a successful vacation rental program with many repeat renters. The yearly gross rental receipts top $115,000 while still leaving over a month for the owners to enjoy the home. No need to apply for a license if you’d like to vacation rent the home to bring in some extra income while you’re not on island; Puamana is permitted for short-term vacations. Families love the location; read the 5-star reviews on VRBO, click here.

There are so many things to love about this place. You can feel the rich traditions all around you in Puamana… The Clubhouse, built over 100 years ago, was home to the Lunas (managers) of the sugar cane fields that once surrounded the area.

Today the beloved clubhouse is alive with community events such as family movie nights, holiday events, and an ocean view gym.

Puamana Site Map – Front Street arrives from Lahaina Town and loops around and joins Honoapi’ilani Highway

In the old days, Front Street ran straight South on what is now Pualei Drive, but when the complex was being developed in 1968, Puamana traded the piece of land on the south side, which is now Puamana Park, and looped Front Street up to join the main road, gaining a strip of land mauka (mountain) side of what became Pualei Drive.

Summer fun 2020. Puamana is home to a mix of full-time residents, vacation renters and owners who spend 6-months a year here… their pets are welcome too!
