Overview

About the property

This Most Beautiful Property Offers Luxury Living In Paradise.

This most sought after location in the complex is a ground floor corner unit offering privacy and just 10 paces away from one of the two almost private beaches, where you may find yourself alone. There are two huge shade trees above for when that sunburn beckons a shady place to enjoy panoramic ocean views with Lanai and Molokai in the background.

Beach chairs, towels and snorkeling gear are provided if you wish to swim with the turtles feeding at the waters edge. Please don't touch them as we would like them to return each day. Seasonal whale watching and spinner dolphins from your lanai and an ever changing ocean show of breathtaking sunsets, sunrises, rainbows and even moonbows over lanai and molokai. World class surfing and paddle boarding from your backyard.

You truly have found paradise.

If a pool is more inviting, enjoy luxuriating under the maui sun in the large pool that is heat controlled to maintain an enjoyable swim no matter the weather. Stroll through the beautiful grounds of the kuleana resort, take advantage of the on-site tennis, shuffleboard court or enjoy a game of ping-pong in the spacious open air lobby complete with library and an assortment of toys for children. A concierge is available to help book your sightseeing trip or luau.

The condominium was completely remodeled in 2014 with tile and granite surfaces , is tastefully furnished and decorated with incredible photographic art. Ceiling fans provide ambiance and comfort in the living room and bedroom. Air conditioning in the bedroom will keep the whole apartment at an even, cool temperature if the trade breezes coming down the slopes of the west maui mountains are not sufficient. All linens are new, high quality and high thread count.

55' HiDef TV with some premium channels and Netflix

About John Egan

Val and john have lived at kuleana for 13 years. We cannot imagine a more relaxing setting to enjoy a glass of wine each evening as we watch the sun set over our neighbor islands.

We are surrounded by world class dining, shopping, golf and countless activities and feel blessed to call this home.

John Egan purchased this condo in 2013

Why John Egan chose West Maui

Just steps from the beach with an ever changing ocean vista.

Perfect place to watch the turtles everyday and in season ,Humpback whales breaching or maybe a pod of Spinner Dolphins passing by.

What makes this condo unique

Two beautiful shade trees providing the coolest spot on the property for those hot days.

Perfect getaway! Unreal sunsets! Well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you'll need for a relaxing beach getaway! We spent 10 day soaking up the sublime views, snorkeling, sunsets, birds, lots of sea turtles, tiki torches, conch blower every night at sunset and beautiful grounds! The marine preserve at the property was as good as if not better than anything Maui has to offer and it is a quick swim or walk from the patio. We just loved our time there and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a private getaway, especially if you like to cook and make your own frozen drinks! It's not for partiers...its a quiet retreat!

Another great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit 3 times. We had a bit of a hiccup when we first checked in but it was resolved. John was very accommodating and made it up to us. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay. The view is amazing and the place is in a great spot and very comfortable.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo two times so far. We now consider it our home away from home. Everything about it is perfect: clean, tidy, everything needed to cook is there, the beach access is hands down the best, stunning grounds, and only a short trip to any touristy activity if you so choose. And we can't forget the sea turtles! Not many places where you can watch these guys swim in your front yard. The entire experience recharges and resets you. In my humble opinion, this is the best place on earth. Looking forward to our next trip.

The beach is your backyard.

  • 5 of 5

What a way to start our Maui vacation, setting the bar high at this gorgeous condo. The condo itself is comfortable and well stocked, with lots of cooking supplies and condiments... but the beach! It's literally your backyard! This condo is great if you have younger kids (2 at the most, or the space might feel tight), because it's the ground floor end unit, with a short grassy area that leads directly to a shaded sandy beach. You can sit on the lanai and be close enough to watch the kids play in the upper sandy beach. The beach became a little steep where the waves were breaking, and they were breaking pretty hard when we visited. But swimmable for people people who can actually swim... and the turtles just glide on by! We arrived, jumped into the ocean, and had a big turtle sweep by us within the first 15 minutes!

Further up the beach is a rockier area for snorkeling, and fun tidepool exploration. We also swam in the large, tiled swimming pool. The grounds are gorgeous, and they are lit by tiki torches at night to prolong your enjoyment of the view.

The condo itself is well appointed. Full mirrors line the length of the inside wall to add light and make the space feel larger. The kitchen is small but functional and modern. The living room is cozy, with a very large TV in case the ocean outside isn't entertaining enough. There is no dining table, so plan to eat on the lanai... why wouldn't you with this view? The couch folds out and if you choose to sleep on it, the ocean outside is roaring loud--it sounds like it's crashing on your lanai. It's not the most comfortable fold out...fine for the kid, but we still chose to sleep on it because...the ocean! The bedroom bed was very comfortable, I spent a night alone in there when the hubby and kid were hogging the foldout. The bathroom is gorgeous, it has a big shower with a river-rock floor underfoot. The bowl style sink is pretty... and up too high for little kids and shorter people, but there's a stool in the closet to help with that.

It was just so relaxing to stay so close to the beach, I'm not sure you could get much closer than this. Sitting on the lanai, the view is framed by lovely trees (which also provide shade...we never used the available air conditioner), the birds are chirping and hopping around your feet...it is paradise.

The location is convenient to the ritzier Ka'anapali resorts and shopping, and Lahaina, but avoids that touristy crowded feeling. We loved our stay at this condo!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

This condo was possibly on the best beach in Maui. Beautiful white sand, clean blue water, turtles everywhere, immaculately kept grounds and in a very quiet setting. The waves were at a minimum so perfect for kids and as far as we heard there have never been sharks in that area. The condo is clean and had all the basic necessities. Air conditioning works really well in the bedroom. John was very easy to deal with! There are no disappointments, was exactly what we expected and more.

Terrific location The view from the patio can't be beat! It's great to be able to snorkel with sea turtles right off the beach.
