The Puhala House is certainly the best of both worlds! Mountains, valley, a ranch next door, and the beach just across the road!It is no wonder that one guest described the home like this: "It's like living in Hawaii of days past. It's quiet and serene with the rolling waves putting you to sleep at night. The best vacation I ever had!"
This beautiful home is a perfect blend of country living, nestled between the pristine ocean and some of the most spectacular mountains in Hawaii. On one side is the Pacific Ocean, on the other is the famous Kaaawa Valley, with its sheer volcanic rock cliffs. For those who like to immerse themselves in nature, sign up for one of the unique tours at Kualoa Ranch. Special tours of their lands will be the best part of staying at Puhala. There is a new night show at the ranch with discounts given when booking activities. The excitement doesn't end there, this is the part of Kualoa Ranch where they are currently filming HAWAII 5-0! In the past many others such as: Jurassic Park, Mighty Joe Young, Windtalkers, Pearl Harbor, Godzilla, 50 First Dates, and the hit TV show LOST have been filmed.
This house is located in a secluded area that affords complete privacy. The property and surrounding area have the feel of Old Hawaii and appear to have stood still in time. Tall trees sway in the breeze, as you stroll the beach across the narrow country road.
Located on Oahu's east shores the home offers seclusion and privacy, next to Kualoa Ranch, offering views of the Ocean, Kaaawa Valley, and Kooloa mountains. During the early evening, take a stroll on the beach across the narrow country road and watch the trees sway as the sunsets over the mountains. The morning will bring a vibrant sunrise you can view from your private deck.
If you want a flavor of the real Hawaii, you have it here! You may even be lucky enough to see an occasional whale during whale season, Turtles also frequent the area and you may catch glimpses of them close to shore.
Great place! Stayed for a week with my husband and two friends for a beachfront wedding that took place nearby. Location is perfect for walking across the street to the ocean (where plenty of turtles just hang out on the beach!). Closet was stocked with boogie boards, snorkels, flippers, beach mats, and beach towels. Having a washer and dryer was a huge help in having clean beach towels every day!
Overall, the condo was comfortable and fairly clean, though there was some mildew on the hallway ceiling where the air conditioning doesn't reach and the carpet on the stairs was pretty gross from sandy feet of previous guests.
Even with those cleaning issues, the place was a great value for location and comfort. Waking up in that master bedroom with a gorgeous view of the ocean was incredible.
I wouldn't recommend staying more than 4 people in the condo unless you're all very comfortable with each other. The sofa apparently folds out into a bed for a 5th person, but it would have been awkward. Due to the loft style of the top floor, anything happening in the living room area is audible to the master bedroom and vice versa. 4 people was just right.

Stayed at the Napili Gardens condo unit #14 in Napili Bay, Maui. Instructions from Lavish Getaways were clear, concise, and accurate about the accommodations. The condo was well maintained (a little dated), close to LaHaina, right across the street from Napili Bay Beach, and a bunch of good restaurants. I would definitely stay there again!
Awesome view, right on the water. Not many people around while we were there over the Thanksgiving weekend for a relaxing get-away. If you're looking to get away from the masses of people at Kaanapali, look no further.
Beautiful studio in the heart of Lahaina.
You can park on the property for $ 15 per day.
Umbrellas are available, as well as many beach towels

A great value in a great location. They were very accommodating, and the place was clean. Wonderful!
Wonderful studio apartment 1 block away from fisherman's wharf. Perfect size for a small family or couple. Close to the historic cable cars and bus stops that will get you anywhere in the city. Even though its in a busier area it is very quiet. Checking in and out was easier than any hotel you'd ever use. Really made my vacation awesome!
