Mahinahina condo description
Kuleana 713 sits about 15-20 feet from a small cove and the ocean‘s edge, with a small secluded beach directly below our unit. You’ll wake to rainbows on the horizon, and find sea turtles feeding below our balcony. But just a word of warning. Be very, very careful out there. Once you go out on our balcony, you may just lose half of your day!
Without a doubt, the most common comment we find in our guestbook is: “we planned to do a lot more during our visit - but we just loved staying here ‘at home’ on your balcony!” seriously.
You’ll find that our island home truly is a 'home away from home' - and we have everything you’ll need for a wonderful stay. Our cute bamboo style kitchen has upgraded appliances, including smooth-top range, and all possible necessities for making a hearty breakfast, lunch for the road, and gourmet dinners by the water‘s edge. There's nothing quite as fun as grilling 'surf and turf' by the ocean's edge at sunset, and eating dinner to the sound of waves crashing, and the glow of the tiki torches below. This is just the best! :-)
By the way, the rest of the condo is just as cute and comfortable as the photos posted in this ad. The bedroom and bath are a fun, comfortable mix of island furnishings and elegant details. Artist signed prints, and even a hula girl lamp! You may just have too much fun in there. (ha)
Outside our home, the grounds of the property are manicured to absolute perfection. You'll be surrounded by lush greenery and tropical flowers at your every turn. The smell of plumeria’s fill the air, and tiki torches are lit at sunset.
So come enjoy west maui at really affordable prices!
Experience kuleana 713 and see why our guests come back year after year.
There's got to be a reason ........ Right?
Hope to see you soon!

Maui, vacation of a lifetime
Maui, vacation of a lifetime
This condo was a wonderful place to stay. The owners were very easy to work with. We had one minor plumbing issue during our stay and it was fixed that very day. We spent a lot of time exploring Maui and everyday we returned we felt like we were coming home. The neighbor lady was really nice and helpful with Maui tips. Believe the pictures! That really is the view from the lanai and the beach is just a few steps away and was never crowded. We saw every sunset from either the beach or the lanai. We saw the sea turtles almost every day during our stay. The only negative is that the bedroom faces the road that is pretty busy and noisy early in the morning. And maybe that's not such a negative as I got up to see the sea turtles in the morning. If I was there alone I would sleep on the sleeper sofa in the living room to hear the surf all night long. Make sure you take in the Farmers's Market Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Apple bananas and fresh pineapple! Doesn't get much better than that. This was the first time I tried VRBO and it was a success. I will certainly recommend this property to family and friends and hope to stay there again myself. It is a great place to make your "home base". It's not crowded and, as we found out, nothing is that far away on Maui, even though it looks like it on the map. We went everywhere and were always back in time to catch the sunset from the beach or lanai. Stay there! You'll love it!

About the owner: Aloha, Kenny and I recently purchaed this little piece of heaven from Lynn and Winston. Lucky for us it has quite the following and we can see why. A lot of people are returning guests because it is such an amazing place. And then there is the view! Watch the whales during whale season and turtles while sipping your favorite hawiian coffee sitting on your lanai. Swim or snorkel with the sea life and turtles. Watch the magnificent sunset while eating dinner and star gazing into the night. Sounds so romantic because it is. A honey mooner's paradise that you must come see for yourself. We do our very best to make it a very affordable and comfortable home away from home and strive to make sure you want for nothing. So enjoy, laugh and love.
Why the Owner Chose Mahinahina:
Yes! This is your view from kuleana 713. The previous owner, Lynn took this photo back in 2002. You would be amazed at how many people ask me to show them 'our view' and if we are 'oceanfront'. This is our view (your view) and it doesn’t get much better than this! :) Two things you need to know about us. First, we do not use the 'book it now' feature. This is our home, this is not a hotel, and we personally contact every single guest. Would you rent your home online at the click of a button? We don't do that. You'll have to actually talk to us, or email us first! :) And two - our availability calendar is connected now for your convenience!!! Please call or email us directly for a price quote. We actually talk to all of our guests, and they tend to like that! Ha :) we are 'old school' - been doing this for a very long time! We will have a lot of repeat guests, and we are very thankful for their loyalty :) to 713 because of the previous owners, Lynn and Winston. Now ... On with the listing ..... Come see for yourself why our wonderful Maui home has approximately 60% repeat guests! We look forward to making new friends each year, and we cherish all of our old ones! We have been privately renting our previous Maui home since 2010, and we have had nothing but happy guests. The previous owners, Lynn and Winston, are just like us. Unfortunately, i'm a crazy busy gal too, and i just can't seem to find the time to transfer all of their “paper guestbook” comments to an online guestbook. But we have lots of references if you want them. :-) they have actually had a lot of guests return every single year since they first bought this home in 2002.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location! Location! Location! The Kuleana Resort is located in North Kaanapali, at Honokowai, about midway between Kaanapali and Kapalua. Our home is a perfect retreat for overworked couples needing to relax and reconnect, and a heavenly haven for honeymooner's. Kuleana 713 sits less than a mile from the Kapalua airport for those quick trips to the neighboring islands. You can zipline, parasail, golf, surf, snorkel, paddle board, scubadive or just plain relax. West maui has some of the greatest restaurants such as the Ritz Carlton, Pineapple Grill, Napiili Cove, Kapalua Golf Resort, Sansei and many more. Mahalo
