About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Kuleana property is extremely well-maintained, has a beautiful pool, Shuffle board, Tennis Court and features 4 quality stainless steel gas BBQs that overlook the ocean. Our Kuleana condo #613 is the premiere unit on property. This Oceanfront 2nd Floor unit has a King size Westin Heavenly Bed in the Master, a Queen foldout couch in the living area, a Full Kitchen with new appliances, and a breathtaking views of the Sunset between the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i!

We recently totally remodeled our Beach Front Home. We removed all carpet, installed new tile throughout and a new ceiling fan. We also custom repainted inside (2 tones) and outside the unit and did other upgrades. You will love it. See you in the future on our private beaches of Maui just 30 feet from your door. We also added a fantastic Custom Maui Rain Forest shower head the size of a dinner plate in the spacious walk in shower. We also have outdoor shower just 20 feet from our door so that you don't have to track sand into the unit when visiting our private beaches just feet from our home.

We also added a Custom Maui Rain Forrest Shower Head (the size of a dinner plate) in our spacious walk in shower.

The Winter Whale season (December---April) is magical. You will see Humpback Whales frolicking in the waters right off your private balcony with your morning coffee or your evening glass of your favorite beverage. The Green Sea Turtles are always here. Click the Yellow BOOK IT button when you're ready! We have added hi speed Internet in the unit to allow you to check email, surf the web, or what shows on streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube.

The furniture and artwork is all Hawaiian motif so that your Hawaiian Vacation in our Oceanfront home is all it you would hope it would be. We often have chairs, towels, boogie boards and toys for the beach.

Our family ocean front home boasts a truly remarkable oceanfront location, on West Maui's pristine coastline, with a gorgeous panoramic view of the Pacific ocean and the nearby islands of Molokai and Lanai. We offer you a rare piece of vintage Hawaii with the convenience and comfort of today. For years, we have striven to make sure that our guests have the most unique Hawaiian vacation. The atmosphere of our resort is friendly, family-oriented, homey and fun. This rare gem sparkles with the beauty of the tropics that only years of aloha can provide.

Our grounds are covered in beautiful, lush, tropical, foliage that has been meticulously maintained, groomed and cared for. None of the newer resorts, or condominiums, can compare to the years of wonderful landscaping that you will enjoy at the Kuleana's incredible oceanfront property. ( Newer resort must be 150 feet from ocean and we are 30 feet from your own private beaches.)

With a large heated pool for swimming, a private snorkel cove, and barbecue areas, plus great views of the ocean, Kuleana is like no other. We are nestled away, in the heart of the resort areas on Maui, and are located close to many great shopping places, restaurants and activities. We invite you to discover the reason why many guests return year after year and consider the Kuleana one of the best kept "West-Side" secrets!

The Kuleana is approximately 5 miles north of Lahaina and Kaanapali beaches and a 45 minute drive from the main airport at Kahului. Or the West Maui, Kapalua Airport is just a mere 5 minutes driving distance away.

About Mark

Mark A Doughty is an attorney, a real estate broker, and a private pilot. Since the first day he stepped off the plane in Kahului (OGG) Airport and breathed in the sweet Maui air, he knew that this Hawaiian island would be his favorite. He currently owns and rents a number of luxury vacation rental properties... that is when he, himself, is not vacationing at this Beach Front Home.

Mark purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mark chose Lahaina

'Maui No Ka Oi' (is the best... #1) There is nowhere else on earth that calls my heart more than Maui. Glorious sunsets, Sun tans and Lava Flows, Volcanoes, Rain forests, Whales, Dolphins and Sea Turtles right out in front of your own balcony. One guest wrote “Great condo! Turtles on the beach and in the water right in front of condo. Beautifully kept property. Would definitely stay here again. Very secure and well maintained.” CF, April 2017

Tucked in a popular resort area, Kuleana provides the perfect combination of recreation and relaxation opportunities for your Maui vacation.

Encounter colorful reef fish while snorkeling in the resort’s private cove, or lounge by the pool with your favorite beverage or a book from the free lending library. Play a set of tennis on regulation size courts, or maybe ping pong or shuffleboard is your game. There is even access to one of the island's best surfing beaches! Grill outdoors in one of four large barbeque areas, whip up an island feast in your condo kitchen, or go out to one of the many restaurants within minutes of the resort.

The resort also offers free WiFi and high-speed Internet access, free assigned parking for guests. We know that every day you will take in the breathtaking views of distant islands and amazing sunsets. Relax, you’re on Maui time!

Resort Features: Oceanfront Location Steps from the Water

Sunsets with Views of Distant Islands

Large Heated Swimming Pool

Private Snorkeling Area with Ocean Access Ladder

Many Lounge Chairs for Soaking in the Sun

Access to One of Maui's Popular Intermediate to Advanced Surfing Locations

Full-Size Tennis Court

Beautifully Landscaped Grounds

What makes this condo unique

The Kuleana is the Spirit Original Hawaiiana well enjoying the comforts of a well maintained I recently remodeled unit that is direct oceanfront.. In the World's top ten beaches every year, Ka'anapali Beach is only 2.5 miles south, and Lahaina is only 5 miles beyond that. Come to Kuleana if you're looking to get away! To relax! To get refreshed, to be inspired, to be entertained by the spirit of Hawaii. You will love your own private paradise, this oceanfront condo in West Maui! This ocean front condo is just feet away from your own private beach. There are four gas barbecues overlooking the waves and the turtles. You can watch the whales breaching, leaping out of the water and joyfully flapping their fins, during the whale season season.(Mid December through April)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear "Maui Mark",

Hey!  This is Candace and family and we just wanted to say thank you, once again, for the ten day stay at your condo in Maui!  It was definitely one of the greatest blessings we have ever received!  The condo and location was amazing!  I so enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty that surrounded us the whole time we were there.  

We loved going out every morning and snorkeling with the sea turtles right out the back door.  My favorite thing to do was to get up early, every morning, take my bowl of fruit and Bible and set out on the porch and study, pray and thank God for the blessing. I took so many pictures of the sunrise, sunsets and grounds around the condo! So beautiful! One day we went over to a hotel resort by Whaler's Village (Ka'anapali Beach) and we all were so thankful that we were staying at your condo and not over there.  So much more peaceful.  I could see why you would go and stay for months at a time.

We spent many evenings in Lahaina, HI. Just strolling through the town and getting Hawaiian Shaved Ice.  (I bet we had a shaved ice every day we were The thing that drew my heart to Maui and your Kuleana Oceanfront Condo #613 was the same thing that draws my heart to Israel, the people..... we loved the two little ladies that worked the front desk, and the guy that kept the grounds was super friendly and helpful.  Even when he had to come one night at ten o'clock at night and tell us to turn down the tv, (the surround sound you have in the condo is amazing. We kept turning it down during the actions scenes but had to turn it up when they spoke and it was still to loud.  ha ha) He was super nice.  lol  

Words really can not do justice to whats in our hearts… Our gratefulness for the blessing of Kuleana #613.  It has been my heart's daily prayer that you receive a hundred fold return on your giving because it was an amazing gift to us!

Thank you so much!

God Bless,

Candace and family

Branson, MO

P.S. Taylor says she is moving to Maui after she graduates from College.... She wants to live there a couple of years after she graduates.  lol..... we will see what happens with that.

When we first walked in it just took our breath away, it wasn't that it was palatial is was really beachy and felt very comfortable like you were home.

The amenities are very adaquate, the view to die for , there are bbqs on the grass out the front just cooking looking at the water, is a great feeling, then if you like swim with the turtles.

Highly recommend

Impressive property

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Hawaii was incredible partly because we chose the right place to stay. As indicated in the listing, the views were amazing, the beach was semi-private and very quiet, and the condo was well - stocked with needed supplies, clean, and comfortable. There was easy access to any activity we chose to do, but we made sure we had at least half of every day to utilize the condo property and the beach. The property was close to many great local eating places.

This condo was the best choice for giving us some quiet time while enjoying Maui. We appreciated the beach towels, the beach chairs, the wake boards, and the snorkeling equipment.

We would love to go back to Maui, and if we do, we will definitely try to book the same condo.

Great location, view, and beach

  • 4 of 5

The only negative was that the ceiling fans were fairly noisy. I would, however, stay here again in a heartbeat. Great, inexpensive mixed plate food a couple blocks south at Ono Kau Kau.

My husband and I stayed at Mark's condo in 2015, and are coming back in April 2018. Mark's condo is directly beachfront and looks just like the pictures! It is close to all restaurants but is very quiet, away from all the hustle and bustle of Lahaina. Mark is very good about getting right back to you with questions and concerns, condo has ever thing you will need and is very clean . Glad to be coming back, thanks Mark!

Perfect , glorious LOCATiON!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Better than I thought could even be possible! From the effortless booking and talking with the owner to a flawless condo in prime location , Kuleana #613 has to be the premier condo on the property. The view was fantastic ! Condo was well equipped , my favorites were the shower head and luxurious bed. Never slept better. As it was a quick , last minute, getaway for myself , I spent a lot of time on the property. Beautful , clean , swimmable beach and large Swimming pool. I even had a group BBQ one evening while watching the sunset. Just fantastic. I will be back when I'm blessed to find an opening. Better than expected! Kuleana is also a metculiously maintained property. Thank you, Mark , for having this unit open for rental!

Beautiful location, wonderful accommodations!

We come to Maui every year. This year, we decided to add an extra week and found The Kuleana Resort and Unit #613. The whole reservation process through VRBO was seamless and working with Mark via email answered all remaining questions. Upon our arrival we had a little glitch with the Wi-Fi and operation of the TV. A quick email to Mark resulted in an immediate response that got us up and running. And Mark even followed up with a phone call. Totally smooth sailing after that ... all we had to do was sit back on the lanai (which is where we started the day with a cup of coffee, and ended the day with a glass of wine) and take in the beautiful vista. The beach area to the left of our unit provided a smooth entry into the ocean to snorkel with the multitude of sea turtles that come every day to munch on the algae covered lava and rocks. What fun to watch from the lanai and see them swimming in from all directions! The beach area to the right is beautiful with natural lava rocks and areas turn into a mini tidal pool when the tide goes out. Then you get to watch the crabs scurrying about. Even better ... the turtles love to come up on the beach and catch a nap in the sunshine! The resort itself is quite lovely and very well maintained. Everything was clean and well kept. Parking is not a problem either. Overall, this was an excellent experience and I can totally recommend this unit and location to anyone.
