No hidden fees! Whaler Village/ Kaanapali / Napili / Kapalua are just minutes away from my condo! It's Ocean front, NOT ocean close.. It really is the best what Maui has to offer. Price is higher during high season ( 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.

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.
Wow, what a view from the lanai! Jay's place is great. It is right on the water (no beach but that didn't bother us). We especially enjoyed watching the huge sea turtles feed amongst the rocks at sunset - you can see that from the balcony best. The local area is great to explore, we enjoyed Lahaina and swimming at DT Flemming beach park just up the road. A slight mix up with the check in which Jay attended to immediately. He was a very attentive host. Communication was very easy. Definite recommend! Mahalo Jay.
This studio was amazing and Jay was an excellent host. The view is exactly as described, the space clean and well appointed. Jay did a good job checking in with us to make sure everything was in order. We would definitely stay here again.
This place was fantastic! Jay was a very accommodating host, always in contact to make sure we were all set and to answer any questions we might have had. The description does not lie; the water is right outside the window. It was a quiet place despite many other families staying in the complex. The neighborhood was a bit removed from the resort areas which we really enjoyed. It felt more like a local experience than your typical tourist trap. There's nothing like getting some delicious takeout, sitting on the balcony, and watching the sunset. We also spotted numerous whales and even a turtle while relaxing out there. The balcony provides spectacular views of Lanai and Molokai, and some decent stargazing with very little light pollution. We would definitely return here given the opportunity.
