About the Clubhouse

The Puamana clubhouse was built in 1919 as the home for the Lunas of the Sugar Cane fields (Luna means the Boss in Hawaiian). The clubhouse is rich in traditions and housed many prominent Maui families. The popular Hawaiian song “Puamana” was written by Aunty Emma Farden Sharpe about their home that was actually down Front street near Lahaina Shores…

Why shop at Walmart? Support local businesses! Cut down on plastic and wrapping supplies…imagine all the plastic junk and fossil fuel burned when you order something online from Amazon Prime with overnight shipping to Maui! At the Puamana Christmas House, you will not only have an enjoyable experience, but you will make a local person happy and cut down your carbon footprint. Mahalo for reading!
