Featured Vacation RentalOceanfront 1 bedroom condo!
Book this place! I can't put it any more simply than that. The location -- off noisy, traffic-ridden Kihei Road, on a quiet side street with ocean frontage -- is fabulous. A grassy lawn rolls about 50 feet down to the beach, where there's great snorkeling just offshore and a popular surfing spot next door; shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. All of the beautifully decorated units in this small four-story building have fully equipped kitchens and lanai with great ocean views. Rooms go quickly in winter, so reserve early.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Punahoa this year, and we are looking forward to staying there next year as well. The condo is beautiful with a location that is better than any place we have ever stayed on Maui, and we have been coming to Maui for 30 years! Annie does a wonderful job cleaning and you are a terrific and attentive manager. There is nothing that can be improved! Mahalo, and we look forward to seeing you next year. Susan and George B.

I cannot say enough nice things about this place! The entire property is well cared for! Clean! No bugs! AWESOME LOCATION! The views are amazing and the sunsets from the large patio were gorgeous. We made friends with the neighbor Sue who made our trip even more special with her advice and knowledge of the area and property. The pictures are exactly what you see and I sure hope this property is available when we plan our next vacation! We were so comfortable with the accommodations that it made it hard to leave. Thanks for everything Zaldy including the fresh fruit you shared from your own garden! - Liane
Amazing location! You'll see turtles swimming around from the balcony! The team is super friendly and quick to respond to requests. - Basil
Great location, can walk to south Kihei shops. 5 meter walk out the back door to the beach. Great snorkeling with turtles just out the back. Good kitchen facilities. Nice house warming gifts. Plenty of towels and linen. Easy free parking. Unfortunately no air conditioning but they have provided an extra stand fan which is great. Thanks for having us! - Rachel

We wanted to stay in Kihei and this place was absolutely the best location for us. Kihei market was merely a 2 minute walk away as was the surf school where you can rent out paddle boards or surf boards and other gear. Since it is centrally located, driving to other places in Maui was also convenient. Hospitality was outstanding - we knew where we wanted to go but the apt had a Maui guide book on the coffee table for quick reference. There were great amenities to play Music, a nice bookshelf with various reads if you just want to read by the beach and chairs to take to the beach to relax in between your snorkeling/swimming excursions. The views - oh my god. The photos do not do it justice. We had sweeping views of the pacific and saw early morning paddle-boarders, surfers and sea turtles right from the balcony! Im sure if you come during the winter months, you can watch whales literally while drinking your morning coffee. No need to go to an expensive touristy bar to get that perfect Hawaiian sunset :) I don't know what else to say. Highly recommend for a great time. - Kunaal

Debbie & Roger, Mill Valley, CA
This place was amazing. It is as the photos show, right on the ocean with grass and palm trees out the door. You can access a beautiful beach just steps away by walking across the grass. In the other direction was a great paddle boarding beach and surfing beach. We saw sea turtles every day. The neighborhood was quiet but very close and walkable to great restaurants and shops. We had a really great week there! - Debbie & Roger
Private yet central location with amazing view- Tehilla
This is a great location for a reasonable price. We would definitely stay here again. It was safe, clean, and had everything we needed like beach towels and chairs. The little kitchen is great too. And it even has a dishwasher! - Jane
This place is amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. You have a direct view of the ocean/sunset. It is walking distance to a lot of eating and shopping areas. We are looking forward to coming back to this same place. - Yadira
Amazing spot and location! What it lacks in the front (upon first appearance), it makes up for inside and out the back! Close walk to all the restaurants and bars in town, beautiful little cove beach right off the property and you can watch surfers/paddle-boarders from the deck which is pretty spectacular. Kitchen was fully equipped so we made lunch and breakfast there every morning which saved us $$$ on eating all the time. Highly recommend! - Holly
This studio was exactly what the photos show! We had an incredible time staying in this condo. It is extremely cozy and has pretty much everything you could want on vacation including a backyard that leads to the ocean! The location was great and there were so many awesome guide books (one homemade specifically for all of the amazing things to do on a the Road to Hana!) that we always found something to go out and do or see. I will definitely be staying here again when I come back! - Olivia
The sunset from front porch are unbelievable. The beaches and other water activities are really close. Our host Zaldy was very responsive throughout our stay. We loved staying here. - Vikash
Canít say enough great things about this place. On the water, great snorkeling, youíll see sea turtles if you snorkel there, all the staff on the property are awesome, centrally located if you want to explore the island, I could keep going but Iíll spare everyone. Just stay here! I definitely plan on staying here every time I go to Maui now. - Tyler
The best was chilling on the deck after 1:00pm knowing we have beach 1 50 meters to our right or two small cove beaches to our right. The Lanaíi was light by guests most night that added an extra special touch for us. Other guests blew into a conch at sunset which added to our experience. - Lorne
The condo was well equipped for a stay in Maui with a great view and location. Additionally, Zaldy was a fast communicator with accurate instructions for check in after office hours. - A.J.
This is a lovely place, with a gorgeous view of the ocean. You can see surfers and sea turtles in the nearby beach. Zaldy is a great host, the apt was very clean and packed with very practical kitchen utensils and other amenities. We will visit again!
First and foremost we loved the location of the unit. It was in a family-friendly area within easy walking distance of grocery dining nightlife the beach easy surfing paddle boarding or just sitting on the beach. It was a relatively short drive over to Kahului, Paia, Lahaina, and the Hana Highway. - Jenn
Excellent views, excellent small beach directly in back, and sea turtles come to shore at night to sleep. Would definitely recommend! - Doug
This place was amazing!!! The view is incredible and it is so cozy! There is no AC, but the ocean breeze is more than enough! Incredible place!
We had an amazing time staying at this beautiful place! It fit 2 people perfectly. The pictures don't even compare to the spectacular view in person! Would definitely return!
A wonderful stay - beautiful location just as described. No need to travel to do snorkeling and sea turtle viewing - they are 20 feet from your back door.
Great place! Great view. Hard to leave.
The VIEW was amazing! Normally I stay at hotels and would never be able to afford such ocean front scenery and ambiance otherwise. The place was plenty spacious enough and well equipped with what we needed. The main room is the highlight and a great place to enjoy the view and spend time with your travel mates.
If you're a millennial or retired engineer who needs a mommy to do your laundry and rub your feet, this probably isn't the place for you. We would politely suggest that you check into a snarky, overpriced hotel instead. However, if you're an adult and want a fabulous base from which to operate, with a romantic view and among the best weather in Maui, this is the place for you. We couldn't be happier with the proximity to great beaches and the helpful staff. The property has the typical character and charm of older condos in Hawaii and was perfect for us.
Great location with amazing view. The studio condo is well equipped but is quite small -- enough space for one person, cozy for two. Despite its small size, has everything you need and is well set up. The location is excellent and there is great snorkelling right in front of the condo. Everything you need is within walking distance.
Excellent! This condo exceeded my expectations. The view of the ocean is incredible. (In my opinion - ocean views are so important to this type of vacation. Being able to see the ocean while relaxing in the condo... watching stand-up paddleboarders, surfers, snorkelers... is so relaxing. You can also see the sunset over the ocean from the condo). The condo is close proximity (a few blocks) from great restaurants, shopping, nightlife in Kihei. Thanks!
Was an amazing trip! Room had all the stuff you need for the beach: towels and chairs loved the place would recommend for anyone who wants to relax and have a good time as a couple or if your by yourself!
This tasteful boutique condo, hidden on a side street, fronts a quiet beach frequented by sea turtles. Who needs a pool? All apartments have ocean lanai; penthouses get air-con.
The only place we stay on Maui We keep coming back to the Punahoa. We've stayed here 5 times over the past 10 years, and we're coming back for a 6th this summer. These views, at these rates, are unbeatable. Most units have everything you could possibly need for a great Maui vacation -- beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, ice packs - and management has beach toys for the kids if you ask. I love having a full kitchen on vacation -- no need to spend hundreds every night on dinner, just grab some fresh fish and make your own sunset dinner for pennies on the dollar. Can't wait for my next visit!
We didn't want to leave! The location was great. 50 steps to your own private beach; snorkeling and turtles and if you wanted more company, then a one block walk was all it was to Charley Young Beach. A short 2 Block walk and you were at some outdoor markets and shops. Very well located. The unit was very clean and had everything you needed to prepare your meals. We had no problem with bugs or other critters in our unit. The managers were very easy to deal with and we felt that they were sincerely interested in making sure our stay there was enjoyable. We are definitely planning on another trip to Maui and we would definitely be staying here again. The sunsets were awesome and watching the surfers from your balcaony while drinking your morning coffee was a great way to start your day.
Great Flat, great View. Would book again here. - Julian
This is a great place Punahoa is low key, quiet, and right on the water. Good swimming and snorkeling right in front. No pool but who needs it. Well maintained, clean and inexpensive.
Paradise Another couple, my husband and myself stayed in two top floor apartments that were very clean and nicely decorated, but the best part was the balcony and the view. We were so close to the water that we could see whales, surfers and beautiful sunsets. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and other beaches. We heard about it from my daughter that honeymooned there. Enjoy
Breathtaking Views 280 Degrees This was one the best vacations ever. The Punahoa is very private and quiet plus it is very close to shops, Charley Young Beach and Cove Beach. The surfing is great for beginners right on your front yard beach. We stayed in the penthouse (401) and loved the additional roof garden for evening star gazing. Comfortable, clean and friendly atmosphere right on the water. You couldn't get any closer without a bathing suit. Longer term guests get a discount...stay for couple weeks. High speed coming soon!
