Property description

The views from this recently remodeled and upgraded(April-May, 2013) ground floor OCEANFRONT unit are spectacular, with the clear blue-green ocean vista and radiant sunsets over the islands of Lana'i, Moloka'i and Oahu. Step off your lanai and you are only 25 feet from the ocean where turtles feed in the rocks just steps from the Magic Beach! Located in the Kuleana resort with only seven 2-3 story buildings, enjoy the best of Hawaii with it’s tropical beauty and unsurpassed views. Kuleana is considered one of the most beautiful and impeccably maintained oceanfront properties on West Maui, offering luxurious living in a peaceful, serene setting. Seasonal humpback whale watching is available directly from our lanai using the high power binoculars provided in this unit (or take an even closer look with a Pacific Whale Foundation cruise from Lahaina harbor). In addition to the multitude of sea turtles, other sea life such as dolphins, manta rays, eagle rays and monk seals can be seen right outside your door. The property has two beaches and a sea ladder, all providing easy entry into the crystal clear ocean for snorkeling in the private snorkel cove, surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding (yes, the waves are good!), kayaking or simply relaxing in the water. A coral reef exists straight out from the property, enhancing the snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, and boogie board activities. Fishing is also popular from the beaches and the ladder.
This unit was purchased in April, 2013 and completely remodeled as our second home and vacation rental in paradise. All new tropical furniture and decorations have been added to compliment the softly colored walls and insure complete submersion in the Hawaiian experience, with careful attention given to comfort, safety and storage. The top of the line plush firm Cal King bed in the bedroom provides relaxing comfort and support while being lulled to sleep by the distant sounds of the ocean. Although the ceiling fans in the livingroom and bedroom are usually sufficient to pull in the ocean breezes and keep the unit comfortable, the bedroom has a new air conditioner that's large enough to cool the entire 500+ sq ft interior space on those few days in the summer when it's hot and/or humid. The bedroom has ample storage for personal belongings, with a large mirrored closet, mirrored dresser and 15 inch high bedframe to allow storage of large suitcases and extra linens under the bed. The open and well lit bathroom has a large vanity with marble counter/sink and vanity to ceiling mirror, as well as an adjustable makeup mirror. The full size shower with rain glass doors has a built in seat, which together with the ADA compliant toilet provide ease of access for older occupants. The kitchen includes lots of counter space with the built-in island, as well as all the necessary appliances (fridge/freezer, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, toaster, coffee maker, blender), glassware, dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, pots and pans, storage containers and non-perishable foodstuffs for those who want to prepare some of their meals themselves (or at least morning coffee and evening Pina Coladas). There is a small table with two chairs next to the kitchen for inside dining (or working on puzzles or other table based games), but we enjoy most of our meals on the patio table and four swivel/rocker chairs on the lanai. The livingroom has a comfortable queen size sofa sleeper (with 6 inch thick mattress), two swivel rocker easy chairs, coffee table and end tables with adjustable lighting, as well as an entertainment center with an adjustable 40 inch wall mounted HDTV (with premium HDTV programming, WiFi and streaming from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc).
The grounds, nearly 4 acres in size, are second to none on West Maui. They contain a myriad of meticulously manicured, lavish vegetation along with paths on which to stroll the property. There is a large, heat-controlled pool to sun, swim, and relax. Barbeques reside at the ocean’s edge, providing an unsurpassed setting for cooking while watching the sunset. There are a multitude of on-site activities to enjoy, including tennis and shuffleboard and ping pong. The resort lobby has extensive library for your reading pleasure, as well as a concierge for booking your luaus and sightseeing trips.
Why pay the high prices for a room in the popular hotels in Kaanapali, Kapalua or Wailea unless you prefer distant ocean views, crowded beaches and eating every meal at expensive restaurants. Our luxurious Kuleana condo is ideal for anyone who wants to control their budget, activities and privacy to suit there own tastes.

Car: Recommended

Enjoy watching whales, turtles and dolphins while sitting on the lanai with a view of Lana'i, Moloka'i and Oahu or relax on the beach under the monkeypod tree 40 feet from the lanai. Located between Lahaina and Kapalua, the Kuleana resort is ideally located close to world renowned golf, restaurants and water activities. A guide to local activities, day trips and restaurants is provided in our condo, based on our experiences over the past 12 years, with activities divided into relaxed, active or extreme and restaurants classified by price (all highly recommended). When staying at the resort to relax by the heated olympic size pool or on the beach, we recommend lunch or dinner from the Okazuya Deli a few block away, where you can get excellent meals at reasonable prices and enjoy them on the lanai. We also recommend a visit to the Farmers Market just down the road every Mon-Wed-Fri morning for fresh papayas, mangoes, coconuts, pineapples and apple bananas.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Although we live in the Gold Country of Northern California, we have always thought of Maui as our second home. We met online (Matchmaker.com) in 2000 and were married on Maui in 2001, but we're still on our honeymoon. We have three children between us and three precious grandchildren, all of whom live in Northern California. Although not retired, we plan to work less and play more, so what is a better place to do that than on Maui. As an expat from Canada, I have met many Canadians who own property at the Kuleana resort or choose to rent here for their holidays. As relatively new vacation rental owners, we look forward to developing more friendships with guests from around the world who share our passion for this tropical paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Kahana:
After a wonderful wedding in Makena, we returned to Maui each October for our anniversary and stayed at a wide variety of complexes and locations on this beautiful island (all rented through VRBO). In 2011, after our youngest daughter was off to college, we rented this unit at Kuleana and immediately fell in love with everything about this property. When we were not able to rent this unit in October, 2012, we rented the condo next door. During our stay, we learned that this unit was in foreclosure and saw this as a sign. We proceeded to purchase this property from the bank and had the opportunity to modernize, furnish and decorate it as our second home. Since we will only be on Maui for 9-12 weeks a year, we wanted to share our wonderful second home with relatives, friends and others who want to experience the best that paradise has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Although this condo is ideal for couples, we added a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper for couples with one or two children. Unlike the high priced hotels on Maui, this condo offers a home away from home feeling in a more private setting with all the luxuries you could want while vacationing in paradise. We don't consider this condo a rental, but rather our second home that we wish to share with family, friends and special guests who appreciate a comfortable place to call home while enjoying all of the wonders the island of Maui has to offer. The Kuleana resort is ideally situated in Kahana on the northwest side of Maui, with easy access to great restaurants, championship golf and ocean sports from Lahaina a few miles to the south to Kapalua a few miles to the north. We recommend a rental car while on Maui (with free parking at Kuleana) to take advantage of all the beautiful drives and destinations (as detailed in the guide in our condo) on this tropical island paradise.
