About the owner: I am a software engineer from San Jose, California. I have many hobbies including on road and off road motorcycle riding, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, photography, and cooking. Maui is the perfect place to enjoy all of these activities. Being only a 5 hour flight away, Maui has become an ideal vacation getaway for me.
Why the Owner Chose Kahana: On my first visit to Maui, I stayed at the Kuleana Resort. I quickly discovered that I loved the island of Maui and wanted to return year after year. After looking at other resorts in the area and what they had to offer, I found that the Kuleana resort was far and above the others, because of the fantastic oceanfront location, the lush tropical grounds, and the magnitude of onsite activities and amenities. I purchased this condo for my personal vacations and to share the Maui experience with others.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Spending time at the Kuleana has become my favorite pastime. Being an avid bbq’er this is the ideal vacation home as it has a full kitchen, a full size fridge/freezer, and four common bbq grills right at the ocean’s edge. I can bbq while watching the amazing sunsets, sailboats passing by, and an array of active sea critters such as the big green sea turtles, manta rays/spotted eagle rays, whales during whale season, and even occasional sightings of dolphins, flying fish, and Hawaiian monk seals. On one occasion I even had the opportunity to bbq a 3 pound octopus I caught spear fishing on the reef just offshore from the condo! I also enjoy simply lazing around, enjoying the beautiful views, sunsets, pool, and gardens. If you have any questions at all about this condo or my rental policy please email me directly at email@example.com to get around the VRBO feature of 'blanking out' email addresses of both the inquiring guests and the replies by the owner.
