About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Any time is the perfect time for that great tropical get-away you've been meaning to take! You'll be sitting on your lanai at sunset, drinking a tropical beverage and enjoying those famous sunsets with that special someone (or someones!).
This 1 br/1 ba, completely updated condo is OCEANFRONT; there's nothing between you and the water, sand, turtles, and great snorkeling that are just about 40 feet from the lanai. The first floor location means you walk directly out to the pool area, bbq grills, and Maui's warm waters. The offshore reef keeps the strong surf at bay and makes the water here like a big, warm, turtle-filled bathtub. We absolutely love it and know you will, too.
The condo is updated to feature a granite and tile bath, maple cabinets, polished slate floors, Island-style contemporary decor, ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, quality furniture and appliances, and free Wi-Fi. This is a non-smoking condo complex, even outside on the lanais, so you are guaranteed a smoke-free environment (this is not the case at most condos).
The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, 4-burner stove and oven, fridge with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, and coffee maker, along with all the dishes, glassware, silverware, and cookware you will need. There is plenty of cabinet space to stash away your groceries. Try our our cool pineapple slicer! Enjoy your meals at our glass-topped kitchen dining spot for two, or outside on your lanai.
The living area has a 32' Vizio flat screen TV, DVD/VHS player, CD player, iPod/iPhone docking station, and cable TV. It also has a ceiling fan.
The full bath includes a tub, shower, sink, medicine cabinet, and toilet, with granite counters.
The bedroom features a king-sized bed, mirrored sliding-door closets, and a dresser with plenty of storage space, along with a clock radio. A remote-controlled ceiling fan and louvered windows keep breezes flowing, and the smell of the plumeria outside is the best thing ever.
The condo sleeps four people, with two in the bedroom and two on the sofa sleeper. This is a perfect condo for a couple or a small family. It is also a ground floor unit, which gives you the most direct access to the ocean. Your oceanfront lanai has a dining table and 4 chairs; lounge chairs are found around the pool, which is in front of you. Parking is conveniently located immediately outside the front door; there is no hiking from the parking lot to your condo.
On property there is also a coin laundry for your use, and outdoor bbq grills with an herb garden featuring plenty of rosemary, basil, Thai basil, sage, oregano and other herbs. There is also a prep sink and colorful prep area. Stock up on groceries, grill a nice steak, and enjoy just staying put for a few nights during your stay; you may like that just as much as Maui's famous restaurants.
For your day trips around the island, we have a rolling cooler, another small cooler, a beach umbrella, sand toys, and four beach chairs. We also have a copy of the Maui Revealed tour guide for you to borrow during your stay; it's the best Maui guide out there. We have also created a notebook of our favorite beaches, activities, restaurants, and other tips that we hope will make this trip very special.
Our location is in Honokowai, about 10 minutes north of Lahaina, and about 10 minutes south of the Kapalua resort. With all due respect to the Wailea/Kihei fans out there, we think West Maui is the best location for beaches and restaurants. You don't have to do as much driving to get to places; there is more to do, see, and eat within a 10 minute drive in either direction. Walk 5 minutes south to the Farmer's Market 3 days a week, and sample some fresh banana bread...it's one of our favorite things to do!
If you're here on a Friday night, join the other Kulakane guests poolside at sunset for the weekly pupu (appetizer) party. Bring your favorite one to share, and blow the conch shell at sunset with your fellow guests. It's a fun Hawaii-style tradition that is just one of the things that makes our place so special.
We've stayed in Maui for many years, and been at many of the big resorts, but there is nothing like having your own private home that is just steps from the water - no parking fees, resort fees, hiking through miles of hallways, and legions of people everywhere!! No thanks! We'll take west Maui's quiet, small-town atmosphere any day. Come once and we know you'll come back again. We looked at dozens of places before choosing this condo and we are so proud to offer it to the VRBO family.
Rates vary with the season. Rates are just $139 per night for the low season (June - August), and $159 for April 15 - May 31 and September 1 - December 15 (excludes Thanksgiving week). During the high season (December 15 - April 15), the rate is $215 per night. We encourage our guests to book EARLY, especially for the winter high season, which traditional sells out.
When you call or email, you reach me directly - I'm Heather, one of the owners. I will get back to you right away and will help make this the best vacation ever. Feel free to email me with any questions you might have.

Year Purchased: 2010
About: Our three families bought this home together after many years of traveling to Maui from southern California, and dreaming about owning a place here. This is a pic of the wives on our property search trip (it was a tough job, but the guys had to stay home with the kids, so we made the sacrifice). :-) We are all friends that met at church and have grown close as our kids have been born and are all friends. The 3 husbands in our group enjoy playing poker and winning each other's money, hence the set of poker chips you'll find in the condo. Their favorite poker games are of course the ones played on the lanai of our place while the kids swim.
Why Lahaina, HI, USA:
West Maui is absolutely the BEST place to stay in Maui, hands down. It has the best access to Lahaina, which is the location of Maui's best restaurants and art galleries. It has the best snorkeling and swimming beaches, because it doesn't get the wind that is so common in the Wailea area. It is much quieter and doesn't have the traffic of Kihei. And with the islands of Lanai and Molokai just offshore, it has the best views and sunsets.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We just can't believe you can walk out and step into the ocean. Even at other oceanfront condos, normally you have to go out the back door and down some stairs to the beach. The first-floor location is just the best, especially if you have kids or just love to get in the water. All the guests and owners at this property are very friendly and tend to gather at sunset around the pool to enjoy the view. It is a much more relaxed and less hurried atmosphere than a big resort; it's like home. Our favorite condo time, though, is morning coffee on the lanai. It's hard to resist posting a pic to Facebook of the great view and quiet Maui morning.
