Recent guest reviews

Amazing, wonderful, top notch - the condo, beach, sunsets (felt like your own personal sunset every evening), pool, grills were all wonderful, clean, excellent condition. The rooms were beautifully appointed, large, full amenities, beach chairs, umbrella and towels included (total bonus), laundry (detergent total bonus). Amazing stars at night. Loved sharing baby beach with local families - plenty of shady spots - snorkeling - shopping close by. Do not even think twice about staying here - the large resorts were crowded, cramped, chaotic and everyone seemed grouchy fighting for a beach/pool chair. Totally chill relaxed vibe here. Grilled by the ocean every night. True family vacation. Pictures posted of resort are spot on. 5 stars all around.

We had a fantastic experience at these condos. Stayed for a week in June. Our condo was beautiful, close to the beach, well-kept, and serviced by the wonderful Violet every day. Beach chairs and boogie boards provided. Nice pool although the workout room near the pool is a little lacking. That's probably my only complaint. Grills by the pool worked well and we used them often. Kids played in the yard that fronts the beach. Great location. Easy walk into Lahaina. On-site management was extremely helpful and friendly. The beach is public, which another reviewer didn't like. But, fortunately, almost all beaches throughout Hawaii are open to the public. Really hope we can go back someday.

We just spent two weeks in Puunoa Beach Estates #103 and highly recommend this property and this unit. The condo is well appointed & maintained and is very tastefully decorated. Everything about it is top-end. We had our own parking spot right outside the front door. The master bedroom is huge with a luxury bathroom suite and walk-in closet. The bedroom’s glass front is framed by landscaping that maintains a comfortable level of privacy while still allowing a great ocean view. The air conditioning has a separate control from the central air in the rest of the condo. The second bedroom with a mountain view can act as a second master. Glass windows and sliding doors extend across the entire front of the living and dining areas, with shades that open completely to expose the full ocean view. The lanai spans the length of the condo, with an outdoor dining area at one end where we spent our mornings watching for whales. The modern kitchen had everything we needed. The location is ideal, within easy walking distance of Lahaina in one direction and Mala Wharf in the other. It sits on Baby Beach which is great for swimming and snorkeling. The front hedges isolate the property from the other beachgoers so we didn’t even see them from the lanai. Each evening, we watched the sun set over the island of Lanai. We’ve stayed at a number of condo resorts in Wailea & Lahaina, including Elua, Makena Surf, Polo Beach and Puamana. This property and location ranks with the best, and this unit is the nicest we’ve found.

Puunoa Beach Estates is a hidden piece of heaven! The check in was easy and the unit we stayed in was gorgeous!! Very well kept up and it looked brand new! And to top it off, the beach is your backyard - literally a few steps from the most gorgeous beach. It was also nice to be away from the loud and busy hotel scene where you have to carry all of your beach stuff at least 10-15 minutes down to the beach, in crowds of people (Kaanapali area). But Puunoa Beach Estates had it all! We were with our young kids so we could enjoy the beautiful patio while they napped inside in the condo. The pool was only 20 steps away and had toys for the kids to play with. Then there's Front Street in Lahaina that has all of the restaurants and shopping and is only a 5-10 minute walk! Literally heaven! And perfect for every age! We can't wait to go back next year!! It was worth every penny!

These condos are beachfront! Perfect beach for lounging, snorkeling or paddleboarding. There's also a pool and hot tub that was never crowded. It's a short walk into town for shopping, dining and live music. I've stayed in Wailea and Kapalua and I think this location beats them both for accessibility to all things. Love this place!

Puunoa Beach Estates is perfection! The staff is incredible, the grounds are lush with tropical landscape all around & the accommodations couldn't be more comfortable! The property is nicely updated with unbelievable ocean front views. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as well as walking to great restaurants. Lahaina is a short walk from the property. Baby beach is just steps from the private lanai. Enjoyed the pool & BBQ area as well. Everyone is infectious with the Aloha Spirit!This was my 4th stay at Puunoa Beach Estates & I look forward to many more...

We've returned to Puunoa annually for 15 years. Over that time we've stayed in three different units. On each and every occasion the greatest challenge is leaving to come home. This 10 unit gated community is perfectly located with Baby Beach at your front door, and a short pleasant walk into the shops and restaurants of Lahaina. The units and grounds are impeccably maintained, the pool and BBQ area are steps away. The on site manager, Paula, is always helpful and available should you need any assistance. It a beautiful, peaceful spot. Our favorite on all the islands. We've already scheduled our next visit.

The condo is well decorated along with great provisions. Two bedrooms with the main living areas between the two bedrooms which provides great privacy for each couple. The grounds are very well maintained along with a great little gym with a treadmill, elliptical, some weights and a TV. There are also two professional size bbq's. Paula is always approachable and accommodating. It's a great place to vacation and unwind. Thank you, Paula!

Stayed in unit #103. Nice beachfront unit and close to downtown Lahaina. Very clean unit with a great view from patio. The kitchen was well appointed but a small selection of spices would have been nice for those that cook. My three teenage girls didn't spend as much time on the beach in front of the unit as expected due to the fact that a transient person had set up a hammock and had taken up residence there. We would have given this review a 2 if it were based on our experience with the property manager. He very rudely ran us out of the barbecue area with meals literally half eaten on our second night there, stating we were past curfew. The house book clearly states we are allowed to have food and beverage in the area while grilling. It does not state a curfew for the grill area. His curt and unyielding attitude set the tone for the rest of our stay and encouraged us to avoid him when possible. A different approach that evening would have been greatly appreciated.

We had 4 couples and rented 2 units, 105 and 101. Both units were luxurious, roomy and comfortable. We appreciated having beach chairs and sand toys in the closet for our use, along with a beach umbrella. Beach towels left in the laundry room, and soap available for using the washer and dryer. Kitchen utensils and cooking, but no basic cooking supplies (salt/pepper) The location is perfect, short walk to Front St in Lahaina, the Banyan Park and all the things to do in the area. A short walk away from Lahaina is a spot for endangered monk seals, and we were fortunate enougj to observe one sunning. Paula was very friendly and accommadating. Overall, our stay in Maui was very enjoyable, in large part because our rooms were so comfortable and convenient, allowing each couple their own privacy, and enough space for all to gather. Loved it here, would definitely go again and recommend.beautiful views from our patio, of the moon and sun sets.
