About This Listing
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.

Jay doesn't lie. His place is awesome. The condo is oceanfront, it has all the essentials, and the location is perfect as a home-base for exploring Maui. Jay provided great directions to the condo and thorough instructions for check-in and check-out. A couple of days before our trip, Jay sent us a message asking if we had any questions. And he followed up on our last day in Maui to make sure everything was OK. The condo is very clean and has great views (we saw a couple of huge turtles swimming against the sea wall!). All of the equipment (appliances, AC, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, cooler, etc.) are in great shape. You really can't go wrong staying at Jay's place!
This was nearly perfect for our trip. 2 people in fully furnished studio. slide doors facing west with nothing but ocean. Comfortable queen size bed. kitchen is very small, but we didn't do that much cooking. Great lanai with just ocean view and none of the neighbors. Assigned parking made it easy. Clean. The carpet should be changed however. Had a hard time ignoring all the stains on the carpet. They should just change it all to the linoleum floors at least. This is a cheap investment given the popularity of this unit. Non smoking is a PLUS. Small TV. Box AC available but we just opened the slide doors to the view and the back door slots for trade winds. It is like sleeping right on the beach. Bedding was clean and pillows comfortable. Quiet area. Great location. Close to some great snorkeling locations. Would come back here without hesitation. And will recommend to our friends and family. Host was really responsive and helpful! Please, please change the carpet! And get some different boogie boards. They were broken.
This place is a wonderful location in West Maui! It is close to several grocery stores as well as a Farmers Market. There is the beautiful Napili Bay up north about 5-10 minutes and Kahana Beach to the south within 5 minutes of walking. Plus you can't beat the beautiful sunsets right from the balcony.
It's perfect for a couple looking for a quiet beautiful spot to rent, and definitely worth the price. Maui is known for its sea turtles and they came by every day around 4/5pm to the sea wall. It's very private but not too secluded either. I highly recommend this property!!
Jay's place is beautiful! It has everything you need and more in it. The place was nice and clean, we had everything we needed to cook or bake, cutlery, plates, dishwasher - everything! The view from the lanai is not justified by pictures. You literally look out to just pure ocean (and if you're lucky like us, whales and a rainbow!). Looking down from the lanai on a sunny afternoon, you'll be greeted by sea turtles all along the wall! The bed is comfortable, we had breakfast on the lanai where there is a table and 2 chairs. Jay was an excellent host - very very easy to communicate with. If we had any questions, he replied sometimes within a couple minutes! There are plenty of shops, restaurants, places to walk around in Lahaina. I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back again! :) Mahalo Jay!
We stayed for a week in Jay's apartment and loved every minute. It was very clean, comfortable and we spent a lot of our time on the balcony watching sea turtles, whales and dolphins. It was very peaceful and a short drive to Whalers Village where there are lots of restaurants and shops. Jay was very responsive right from the start and gave recommendations which were very helpful. We'd stay here again if we returned. The apartment came with everything we needed to cook and also beach equipment (snorkels, cool bag, towels) which was great!
Great space, conveniently located s d exactly as described! Wonderful to fall asleep to ocean waves every night. We'll definitively book again when we return to Maui!
