This condo is very special! It's Direct Ocean front, NOT ocean close.. It really is the best what Maui has to offer. There's not any place closer than the ocean than my condo! Price is higher during high season/ Weekend( December-March)
Redefining what DIRECT OCEAN FRONT means. You are literally less than 20 feet to the water! No hidden fees. All taxes / fees included!
Thank you for checking out my direct Ocean Front Studio! All inquiries get answered. No attitude here and am always here to help! Happy hunting! My Pohailani studio gets you as close to the ocean as possible! Listen to the waves gently crash on the rocks just outside your 3rd floor patio. Enjoy watching whales breach and turtles play from your living room! This newly remodeled studio unit is comfortable with all the modern upgrades but keeps it Hawaiian feel and charm. The Pohailani is not a resort destination, this is a destination for guests who really want the peace and quiet Maui has to offer. Enjoy a romantic getaway where all you will see from your room is the beautiful glimmering blue of the Pacific ocean out your door.

This place is the best!! This is truly ocean front and couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our time in Maui! Jay was helpful and prompt when booking, stayed in touch before we arrived and made sure we did not need anything upon arrival. The bed was comfy, kitchen had all the things we needed and the scenery was top notch. Location was within walking distance of maui brewing company and some shops and the traffic in the area was minimal. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!
Jay was a great host with regular communication leading up to and during the stay to make sure we had everything we needed.
The studio is lovely and has a beautiful outlook facing the ocean where we enjoyed a few glasses of wine and the passing sea turtles and whales.
A short drive either north or south gets you to plenty of restaurants.
Jay was quick to respond to our reservation and kept in contact to make sure the check in was smooth. He was easy to get a hold of when contacting him after we checked in with a few questions. The listing was as advertised and the condo was beautiful.
In addition to being a fabulous studio, Jay provided all of the little things that helped to make our stay great, like a cooler for a day trip, snorkel gear, all of the needed kitchen utensils, helpful hints for restaurants and activities. We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The view is unbelievable, and we loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves each night. We saw whales and turtles from the lanai. We could not have asked for more!
My husband and I stayed in Jay's studio for 7 days. We loved waking up to an unobstructed view of the ocean!! We had a family of sea turtles that liked to play right below the unit, and even got to see some whales splashing around! The complex is quiet, and Jay was super responsive when we had a question. I would highly recommend this studio and would go back in a heart beat.
Jay kept great communication and made sure the place was in great shape for when we arrived. We had read many stellar reviews which led us to book and I can vouch for all of them, it was simply stunning.
Humpback Whales and Green Sea Turtles were constantly in sight from a great patio, and I am considering buying an identical couch. Room cooled very quickly with the provided air conditioner and the allotted parking space was a huge perk given past experiences on the island. I would book this room again in a heartbeat for my next trip.
I've been using Airbnb for years and this place is definitely in my top 3 experiences. The flat was absolutely perfect. Great location, very clean and an amazing view. Why anyone would choose to stay in a hotel when options like this are available is beyond me.
Jay was a great host, he made sure we had everything we needed and even referred me to a local yoga studio. If we ever head back to Maui, we will definitely be staying here again.
