Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Kuleana Resort is located between the West Maui mountains and the ocean on the gold coast of Maui. Unit 411 is a one-bedroom, second-floor oceanfront unit amidst lush gardens. It is newly remodeled with granite counter tops and travertine floors throughout. A private lanai affords views of the islands of Lanai, Molokai, and beautiful sunsets. During winter season you can whale-watch from your private lanai. Turtles abound and an on-site snorkeling ramp affords easy access to the water. We have a small beach that comes and goes, but Kapalua and Kaanapali beaches are nearby, as are many other picturesque beaches. There is also an on on-site access to an activities desk where you can book tours. You can do everything or you can do nothing. We were married on the grounds and return every year to celebrate our anniversary.

The condo complex boasts a tennis court and a large swimming pool, suitable for lap swimming. The Kuleana is well known for its grounds which are on seven acres with walkways surrounded by gorgeous plumeria and ironwood trees, all types of hibiscus, ginger and palms. These grounds are tended with pride and are among the best on the west side.

Shopping, dining and golf can all be found within a 5 mile radius. We are three miles north of the excitement of the Kaanapali hotel district which includes spas, golf, surfing, kayaking and shopping. We are five miles north of the historic charms of Lahaina where you can find restaurants for every taste, boats for sport fishing, movie theaters, art galleries, shows and plenty of shopping. We are about 5 miles south of the famous Kapalua golf course. Of course, you can always stay in and barbeque on the beach while enjoying the sunset. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you might need.

We remodeled in 2006 adding travertine floors and granite counter tops. In March of 2009, we purchased a new sofa and all new lanai furnature, and we added hi-speed internet (DSL) and wi-Fi. In February 2010 we added new wool Hawaiian rugs. We continue to keep this unit in the best and cleanest possible condition.

This place offers everything

Our stay at this condo was spectacular. The view and location from the water is stunning and the surf sounds rock you to sleep. The location to downtown Lahaina is just minutes yet you have quiet privacy in the home. It provides a very comfy king bed, fully stocked kitchen and even beach chairs and umbrella for beaching.

What a great place to stay in Maui.

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Robert,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about our stay! It was wonderful! We had an awesome time and enjoyed every bit of the condo as well as the surrounding area. The condo had everything we could of needed and then some. From the kitchen to the tour books and snorkeling equipment. The lanai was spectacular and the views can't be beat! We saw whales and dolphins from the lanai. I don't think we really could have asked for anything more.

Staying at your place was so much better then staying at the big resorts. The condo was clean and had plenty of towels. Everyone at the complex was very nice.

I am a bartender and when I tell people about my stay in Maui, they want to to get your contact information. I have already given out your number and website to several people.

Thank you again for the use of your condo and I will definitely be contacting you again on my next trip to Maui.

Aloha,

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at the Kuleana. I loved this condo! It's in the perfect location with one building and the pool separating it from the busy road. It was quiet and peaceful with the ever present sound of the waves. Comfortably furnished and super clean. The owner was great to work with. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the lanai while watching turtles and rainbows. A perfect way to start a day. The Farmers Market was always fun. I definitely recommend this condo. Pretty sure my next trip to Maui will find me staying right here again.

Long Overdue

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to write this review for a long time. My husband and I stayed in this condo for a little over a week in February, 2015. We had talked for years about going to see the whales in Maui. This year we had the opportunity to do so, so I set out to find a waterfront condo where we could watch the whales from the lanai and it wouldn't break the bank. From our first interaction with Bob until the end of our trip, everything went smoothly. He answered all my questions and I felt confident we picked the right place to stay. We left our house and it was -6 degrees outside and we arrived on Maui to temperatures in the 80s. When we got to the condo, the first thing we noticed when we walked inside was how clean it was. Then, of course, we had to go look at the view. I knew it was ocean front and close to the water, but until you actually see it, you don't really know how fabulous it is. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about that view....of course it is our computer screensaver so that helps! We got up in the morning, sat out on the lanai and watched for whales. This was pretty much our routine whenever we were in this condo. I hate to admit that we are tv watchers on vacation and we did the first night, but it was never turned on again our entire trip. The condo complex is in a nice area and it was a great home base to wherever we wanted to travel to on the island. If you are looking for a whale watch, we went out on the Teralani. We definitely recommend it. We went out first thing in the morning and it was not crowded so there was a good view from anywhere on the boat. We loved going to Front Street and walking around. Local Boys Shave Ice was our favorite daily treat. We also enjoyed Aloha Mixed Plate for breakfast, the fried rice is very addicting. Before I end, I just want to say that it is obvious the owners take pride in their condo. The upgrades are wonderful. This is definitely a condo we would recommend to anyone looking for an oceanfront place to stay on Maui. We have already begun to save so we will be able to return.

Truly right on the water!!! We sat on the lanai the entire first day and whale watched...our own personal whale tour. Sea turtles swam right around the rocks shown in the pics. Sunsets from the lanai were fabulous! Amenities were very nice and the condo had everything you need to eat in or dine out. Was very quiet and relaxing....if you want to relax on the water...this is the place! Owners were professional and easy to work with. Will plan to stay here again when in Maui...loved Lahaina Pizza company! This place is excellent and highly recommended.

Loved the unit

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit at Kuleana. You are right next to the beach with fabulous sunset views. The bed is super-comfy. The kitchen and bath have been upgraded recently and look great. The unit has beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella to help make a great day at the beach, whether right below your window or down the street at all of the great nearby beaches. It's also right next to the pool. The Kuleana is very close to some great take-out food to enjoy on the balcony as well as 10 min away from the many great choices at Ka'anapali. The community is quiet and peaceful. Robert was very responsive and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend this unit.
