The views from this OCEANFRONT unit are breathtaking, with the azure ocean and sunsets over sister islands, Lanaii and Molokai. Step off your lanai and you are only 25 feet from the ocean! Located in the Kuleana resort, enjoy a taste of old Hawaii with it’s tropical beauty and unsurpassable views. It is considered one of the most beautiful oceanfront properties on West Maui, offering quiet, luxury living in paradise. Seasonal humpback whale watching is available directly from your lanai! In addition, watch the multitude of sea turtles, other sea life such as dolphins, manta rays, eagle rays and monk seals, and surfers right outside your door. The property has two beaches and a sea ladder, all providing easy entry into the crystal clear ocean for snorkeling in the private snorkel cove, surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding (yes, the waves are good!), kayaking or simply relaxing in the water. A coral reef exists straight out from the property, enhancing the snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, and boogie boarding activities. Fishing is also popular from the beaches and the ladder.
The unit is remodeled and well-decorated in tropical designs. Fans are located in the living room and bedroom. The living room has a comfy sofa with direct oceanfront views. The kitchen has a bar counter with seating for four, looking out to the ocean as well. The bedroom has a california king size bed and is equipped with an air conditioner. The kitchen has all the amenities of home. The bathroom has a glass block, walk in shower with room enough for two. WI-FI and cable TV are also included.
The grounds, nearly 4 acres in size, are second to none on West Maui. They contain a myriad of meticulously manicured, lavish vegetation along with paths on which to stroll the property. There is a large, heat-controlled pool at which to sun, swim, and relax. Barbeques reside at the ocean’s edge, providing an unsurpassed setting for cooking while watching the sunset. There are a multitude of on-site activities in which to enjoy. Tennis and shuffleboard courts reside on-site. An open air lobby offers ping pong, an extensive library for your reading pleasure, and has a concierge for booking your luaus and sightseeing trips.
Nearby activities are abundant, and one can enjoy the island without even renting a car! The property is within walking distance of the famous Kaanapali Beach with its fantastic restaurants, shopping, and beach-going activities. There are also many local restaurants, a farmer’s market, grocery stores and a multitude of beach parks. The Maui bus stops right in front of the property and will take you all over the island for a mere $8 per day. My standard rates are $165 per night in the off-season, and $195 per night in the peak season which is December 15 through April 15.
We know many others that own vacation units at this property, so if you want to bring others along, they can be accommodated as well.

I am a software engineer from San Jose, California. I have many hobbies including on road and off road motorcycle riding, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, photography, and cooking. Maui is the perfect place to enjoy all of these activities. Being only a 5 hour flight away, Maui has become an ideal vacation getaway for me.
Neil purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Neil chose Honokowai
On my first visit to Maui, I stayed at the Kuleana Resort. I quickly discovered that I loved the island of Maui and wanted to return year after year. After looking at other resorts in the area and what they had to offer, I found that the Kuleana resort was far and above the others, because of the fantastic oceanfront location, the lush tropical grounds, and the magnitude of onsite activities and amenities. I purchased this condo for my personal vacations and to share the Maui experience with others.
What makes this Condo unique
Spending time at the Kuleana has become my favorite pastime. Being an avid bbq’er this is the ideal vacation home as it has a full kitchen, a full size fridge/freezer, and four common bbq grills right at the ocean’s edge. I can bbq while watching the amazing sunsets, sailboats passing by, and an array of active sea critters such as the big green sea turtles, manta rays/spotted eagle rays, whales during whale season, and even occasional sightings of dolphins, flying fish, and Hawaiian monk seals. On one occasion I even had the opportunity to bbq a 3 pound octopus I caught spear fishing on the reef just offshore from the condo! I also enjoy simply lazing around, enjoying the beautiful views, sunsets, pool, and gardens. If you have any questions at all about this condo or my rental policy please email me directly to get around the VRBO feature of 'blanking out' email addresses of both the inquiring guests and the replies by the owner.

Quick 2 night stay!
We only stayed for our last 2 nights in Maui, wish it was longer. The condo itself was clean and had everything you needed but definitely showing its age and could use some updating. It is the perfect size for a couple. We truly enjoyed the convenience of this ground floor condo, just steps from the beach and spent most of our time soaking in the views from the lanai. Our most memorable time from our trip, was the sunsets from the lanai!
Thank you Neil for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise!
Wonderful Beach Front Condo with Million Dollar Views! Just steps to the beach.
What an amazing little place you have Neil! My husband and I LOVED your condo and the location and views were to die for. If you are reading this and wondering if a ground floor condo is the way to go, my answer is yes. To be able to be in Maui and wake every morning to the ocean, and the most beautiful beach, just footsteps away was a dream come true. The condo is small but for my husband and I it was perfect. The bedroom was spacious, the king bed comfy, the kitchen and living area were just enough, the bathroom is great too. We didn't turn the TV on once but that was our goal. The condo was really clean and had everything we needed, the property was really nice too. The grills are located so that you have the most amazing view as well while cooking. It was quiet and just an amazing place to stay. Thank you so much Neil for being so great to work with as well. We will be back!!
Views, location, owner thought of everything!!!!
We stayed a week and it was perfect. Small kitchen with everything and stores near by. Ground level so you can walk right out to beach... Grills on property and heated pool... Owner has snorkeling gear for use at little beach on property ... Clean and picture perfect. His pictures on ad accurately describe condo. I would stay here again should I get to come back. Btw. Owner is quick to reply!!!
Began summer the right way!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kuleana in Neil's condo. Thank you Neil for your Aloha spirit and hospitality. I have pretty much the same story as all the other happy reviews as well. Weather was perfect, sunsets the best, people were very gracious. Couldn't ask for more. I've already started planning for next year.
Another great visit to Kuleana!
We have been coming to Kuleana, every year for the past ten years. You can't beat the location, close to the water, incredible Sunsets every night, and Neil's unit is one of the nicest we have stayed in. Neil is great to deal with, really wants you to enjoy his place, and keeps it equipped with every thing you would need for a nice stay. We will be back soon, planning a return now!
Our Little Hawaiian House
This is how we refer to Neil's condo--"Our Little Hawaiian House". I LOVE this place!
This was my husband and my second time coming back to use this condo. As usual, it was very clean and well maintained. Neil, the owner, is exceptionally helpful and prompt in answering your questions. My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary and found everything just as the year before, in perfect condition. The beach is uncrowded, and the people using condos here are very friendly. We barbequed this time and the barbeques are impeccably clean and well maintained. In addition to the condo being fantastic, the grounds are amazingly beautiful and well maintained. This is a very quiet location where you can relax and enjoy the amazing views. We stayed for two weeks this trip and would stay longer if we had more vacation time! We have already reserved our time for next year! Neil--you're the best!
