Last minute - looking for ocean front condo in West Maui

We are hoping to find a condo in West Maui that is approximately 50 feet from the ocean's edge. If anyone knows of something this close or knows which condos are closest, please let me know.

I have already checked Kaanapali Alii which shows no ocean front rooms available and do not want to be at Honua Kai because of proximity to the sewage treatment plant. We prefer to be at least a couple miles from the plant as well as Kahekili Beach.

You don't say when. I would consider the Mahana. Not miles from the sewage plant but def haven't ever smelled anything there.

Further west, honokowai, Kahana and Napili have some close ones.

Agree with the suggestion for the Mahana. We've never smelled the sewage treatment plant there, and it's hard to get a better view than what you get there. However, availability might be an issue. If you let us know your dates, we can do a bit of searching for you.

We stay at the Outrigger Royal Kahana - Right on the beach! Have booked through VRBO and the Outrigger with excellent oceanfront condos.

Don't know about availability, but would you be interested in Puamana, a gated community at the south end of Lahaina town? We loved walking across our lanai and the green lawn right to the little beach. There are not "resort" services, but the neighborhood feel is very nice, and the oceanfront pool is wonderful. It's a quiet place with lots of homes owner occupied. Units vary a lot and are rented from individual owners. You can find them on vrbo or through several agencies. vrbo.com/vacation-rentals/…puamana

Here's a site map, so you can see where the units are. vacation-maui.com/Puamana_Resort/images/map_… We had a three bedroom in building 9 a couple of years ago and loved it. It's a pretty easy walk to the shops and restaurants at 505 Front Street.

Look in Honokawai. Everything is right at the ocean's edge, built back when Maui development laws allowed that.

I like your guidelines for what you are looking for.

Lahaina Shores - has a reef which makes it shallow for some swimmers. Great spot to watch surfers and walk into town.

We stayed at the Nohonani in Honokwai in june and it was perfect for us. This is the area we will stay at on our next trip for sure and probably Nohonani we just liked it that much. We even had our own little beach with Honu!

We booked our unit 202 thru Maui Lodging Properties and I think they had a couple more there too. You can also book some units the thru onsite mgt. and Aloha Condos.
