ALOHA! My 2 bedroom 1 bath GARDEN VIEW condo is on the GROUND FLOOR of a stand alone two story building. Access to uncrowded sandy beaches & sunset views are across the street. Rental includes FREE WIFI and FREE PARKING which makes visiting Maui more affordable than hotels. Appreciate the convenience of the Washer/Dryer. Refreshing deep pool, bbq & tennis courts are some of the amenities of the complex.
No air-conditioning. Past guests have said its comfortable and not necessary.
Fans and windows in every room.
CONDO SIZE AND CAPACITY
-2 bedroom/ 1 bath
-641 sq feet under roof PLUS 144 sq foot private lanai.
-Clean, beach cozy & prepped for simplicity & comfort is what makes our condo affordable in a high end zipcode area.
MAXIMUM capacity: 5 persons (a child at any age is a person)
SETTING -The "POHAILANI" complex is located in Kahana between Lahaina and Kapalua in a tropical setting across from the beach. The condos are set up in twos, a ground floor unit and an upstairs unit. Units are arranged in a graceful oval surrounding a large garden area with two swimming pools, palms, other tropical trees & flowers. A bbq grill &large swimming pool is right outside the lanai. There is a sense of peace and privacy that is not present in the large resorts.
Begin your day with coffee on the lanai or a quick walk across the street to greet the turtles and fill your lungs with healing salty air. Be at peace viewing an unforgettable sunset or witness whales breaching during season at Kahana beach. Take a refreshing plunge into the deep, cool & shady pool. Appreciate the tropical landscape of Pohailani while barbecuing. Cook a homemade meal created with fresh Island produce from the local farmers markets. Salut the day with a toast of pineapple wine.
Our condo is a great place to relax & reflect over the days journeys & plan tomorrow's adventures.
