Maui Luxury Vacation Homes in Kahana
Hale Pumehana, "House of Warmth & Affection", is an enchanting new vacation home, styled as a personal hide-a-way resort and spa. This spacious 5,000 square foot ocean front private residence, recently purchased at a cost of over US $6 million, has up to 6 sleeping rooms, piano, central air conditioning, a heated swimming pool, a star-lit spa hot tub, grass lawn, and a sandy play area.
Pumehana embodies warmth in it's unique interior design known as Missionary-Plantation style. This cozy but grand family-style home is comprised of intricate moldings and wood work, custom tile, etched glass, rare tropical hardwoods, and flagstone floors.
A central great room with two story ceilings has a small lava rock waterfall, casual living furniture, floor to ceiling glass pocket sliding doors, and an open gourmet kitchen. The separate family and media room with wood burning fireplace is next door to the home office. Pumehana is fully loaded with convenient goodies including a safe, security system, gated entry, and high speed wireless service.
Mature and verdant gardens frame the outdoor grounds and lend considerable privacy to the pool and spa area. A sprawling ocean front grass lawn is a great place for children to play or for a game of croquet or badmitton. The lawn spills down to a simulated sandy beach for sunning or sandcastle projects. Walk through a gate directly into the ocean. See notes regarding beach and ocean access in the Rates & Details page.
