Open, bright and private, this updated two-story townhouse condo features 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen and a separate loft office/reading area with computer and printer/scanner. Enjoy one upstairs bedroom with California King size bed, and one downstairs bedroom with Queen size bed. Both bedrooms are enclosed (unlike some condos that count an open loft as a second bedroom.) Great for two couples or singles traveling together. Fully-equipped granite kitchen includes coffee maker, dishwasher, Jenn-Air radiant cooktop, conventional/convection and microwave ovens, rice cooker, refrigerator with ice maker, oversized disposal, toaster, and blender. New stainless refrigerator, dishwasher, convection oven and new carpet throughout in November 2013. 50' wall-mounted flat-screen TV in the living room, Blu-Ray/DVD player and stereo with input for mp3 player/iPod/smartphone. 30' flat-screen TV with DVD player in upstairs bedroom. Digital cable service. Broadband wi-fi throughout the complex at no extra charge.
Two identical bathrooms feature walk-in granite showers with height-adjustable shower head/hand shower, granite counters, and vessel sinks.
The condo has a loft office/reading area (separate from the private enclosed bedrooms) with computer and wireless laser printer/scanner available free for guest use, good lighting and comfortable seating. If you bring your laptop (or wi-fi enabled device such as smartphone or tablet) you can use the free wireless broadband Internet access available throughout the complex (even by the pool). Useful for getting some work done while on vacation (if you must), or searching and booking activities on Maui.
Ceiling fans in all rooms and refreshing island Trade winds keep you naturally cool. Dine on your private lanai (balcony) with a spectacular 2-island ocean view. Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean.
Learn to blow a conch shell in the traditional Hawaiian ceremony to bless the next day's weather while viewing the sunset every evening. Relax by the pool or swim in the ocean. See rainbows, sea turtles and dolphins from your private lanai. Humpback whales are often seen from December to April. Sea turtles come within feet of the shore every day to feed, and are wonderful to watch while snorkeling.
ON-SITE Manager. No lockbox, and no need drive to an offsite location to pick up keys when you arrive. Pick up your keys from our friendly, helpful rental manager, just 150 feet from your front door. She will assist you with any needs that arise during your stay (or in the unlikely event of a problem), and can provide a wealth of knowledge regarding island attractions, restaurants and activities. (Note: Many condos in the area and even in our complex are managed by off-site companies. Be sure to understand the difference and make sure that managers listed as 'on site' are actually on the same property as your condo. Our is, and we wouldn't have it any other way.)

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We're a northern California family who have been vacationing in Maui since the mid-1980s. After searching many west Maui condo complexes, we purchased our unit at the Kulakane in 2007, and travel there several times each year to enjoy it and keep the condo in top shape.
Why the Owner Chose Honokowai: We especially love upper west Maui, where the views of the neighbor islands of Molokai and Lanai are unmatched elsewhere on Maui - or any other tropical location we have been to. We chose Kulakane 302 specifically for the spectacular, unobstructed 180-degree two-island ocean view, unique architecture, friendly vibe, easy beach/ocean access and oceanside pool. (We were surprised to find that many neighboring properties have their pool located on parking lot side of the building, with no ocean view.) The Kulakane is a small, low-rise (3 stories) complex in the quiet Honokowai district, between Kaanapali and Kapalua. The historic village of Lahaina, once a whaling port, is probably the most popular tourist and shopping attraction on Maui. It is a short 10-minute drive from our condo, which allows us to enjoy it when we choose, and enjoy the quiet and privacy of Honokowai when we prefer to avoid the crowds. Two of Maui's premier golf locations, Kapalua and Kaanapali, are also within an easy 10-minute drive. Surf breaks, ranging from beginner level (Puamana, Laniupoko) to advanced (Honolua Bay) are also within a 15-minute drive. The Honokowai Farmer's Market is held on MWF mornings, just 200 yards from our condo. Snorkel equipment, surfboard, mopeds, and video and video rentals are all available within 1/2 mile of the condo.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Kulakane 302 directly faces the ocean, and is just 50 feet from the water's edge. From your private lanai (balcony), you will see only the ocean, the neighbor islands, the beach and some of the local sea life (such as sea turtles, whales and dolphins). The lanai is really an extension of the living room - it has an overhanging roof, side walls and is carpeted, so you can comfortably enjoy it in any weather, including tropical sprinkles. We sometimes sit on the lanai, surfing the web on our laptops (via the free Wi-Fi network) and watching the surf in front of us.
There is a working office with a personal computer and wireless laser printer provided for your use. Stay in email contact with your friends back home, make your arrangements for Maui activities, take care of a few business tasks (Microsoft Office 2007 is installed on the PC), print your boarding passes.
