These 30 acres of townhouses set right on the water are ideal for those who want to be able to retreat from the crowds and cacophony of downtown Lahaina into the serene quiet of an elegant neighborhood. Private and peaceful are apt descriptions for this complex: Each unit is a privately owned individual home, with no neighbors above or below. Most are exquisitely decorated, and all come with full kitchen, lanai, barbecue, and at least two bathrooms. Puamana was once a private estate in the 1920s, part of the sugar plantations that dominated Lahaina; the plantation manager’s house has been converted into a clubhouse with an oceanfront lanai, library, card room, sauna, table-tennis tables, and office. Note: Rates for garden-view units are significantly lower—sometimes by several hundreds of dollars a night—than those for oceanfront units. The contact info below is for just one of the management companies offering rentals here, but you’ll also find units here through VRBO and other rental agencies.
