Life Lessons Learned from Covid-19: Now is the Time to Fast-Track Joy

Most of us have been re-evaluating our lives during this transformative time, deciding we no longer want to postpone joy… Are you ready to fast-track your retirement or are you ready to enjoy your life now? Well, I have a solution for you:

Get a hideaway in Lahaina: 71 Puapake Place #3 in the gated oceanfront community, Puamana, is the lowest priced condo in the neighborhood at this time at $795,000. Furnished and ready to roll.

You can purchase this condo without being on Maui, read on. But start by taking a tour from your armchair, sipping a glass of pineapple wine:

When you live on the ocean, you get in the water every day! The good weather in Lahaina encourages us to stay healthy.

After a day playing in the waves out front, grill dinner and unwind on your back patio with your ‘Ohana in a private tropical garden setting.

71-3 is sold fully furnished down to the beach chairs, kitchen wear, and surf boards…are you ready to fast track to Maui? The upgraded kitchen with granite countertops, double pane windows throughout, new tile flooring, and stylish upgrades in both bathrooms are sure to please.

71-3 Puapake is one of the truly private units in Puamana, tucked away where no one walks by your back lanai and no cars drive through.

You will appreciate this location 100 steps to the mauka pool yet with no pool noise…it’s like you have your own private pool!

The Mauka Pool

Puamana is a low-density oceanfront community on 30 acres with that old Hawaii vibe. Just a short walk from 71-3 and you are at the historic clubhouse where you can work-out in the oceanfront gym, celebrate birthdays, or just gather to watch the surf and sunsets.

Invest in a golf cart and cruise around the 30 acres of oceanfront property, play tennis or swim in one of the three pools. Throw your board in the cart and check the surf as Puamana is located on a seasonal sandy beach with three surf spots out front!

Puamana is located within easy biking distance to historic Lahaina town. With the mild climate and clear waters, you will see why Hawaiian Royalty made Lahaina their home and why Lahaina was a popular destination for the whalers.

Puamana is permitted for vacation rentals and is a popular vacation destination, so rent your place out for some extra income when you are not on the island; no special permit necessary.

There is extra open parking nearby this unit. People ask me about the road noise at 71-3, it is not bad, more like a background noise. I live near the road in Puamana and really don’t notice it after a while… close the double pane windows and turn on the AC if you need more privacy!

Rest assured that we are still able to complete your real estate transactions during these challenging times. Hawaii Life has always been tech-enabled, so along with virtual tours, electronic signatures, and video conferencing, we are moving forward with closings. For more on how we are working in the age of Covid-19, see these recent updates: Covid-19 Resource Center.

I will miss meeting up with you in person, but for now, throwing da shaka is my germ-free greeting from West Maui. Contact me, your Puamana specialist, Anna Severson, for more information. I am a full-time resident and owner in Puamana for 16 years, offering global reach, local style, and local market expertise to my clients.

Remember the coffee mug: “Don’t Postpone Joy” — now is a good time to act on that! A hui hou.
