Entering 322 for the first time is a very special experience. The stunning view of the Pacific reaches across the apartment and stops you in your tracks even before you set foot in the living room. You know instantly that you are about to have a wonderful vacation. The lanai is just 45 yards from the water’s edge and offers stunning views of the ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai. You can watch whales in season (December to April) and rainbows and sunsets unparalleled throughout the year.

This is a very private condo. It is a top (3rd) floor end unit. There is no one above you and only one unit next to you separated by a thick block wall. There is a complete kitchen remodeled on 10/15/15, with granite counters, bamboo cabinets, stainless appliances, all dish ware and cookware. The bathroom was remodeled in 10/15 as well with a walk-in shower, granite counter and bamboo vanity. Parking and wireless Internet are provided free of charge. Note: There is a stairway, please see suitability below.


Kuleana is a boutique resort. It is not a Kaanapali high rise, high density type resort. You will never feel crowded. You will never have to wait for an elevator. You will never have to look up to see the sky. It is a very peaceful place. Low rise condos are surrounded in beauty, on 4 acres lush with tropical gardens.

To snorkel or just lie on a beach, most locations in Maui require you to drive somewhere, but Kuleana, subject to weather conditions, has its own SECRET – a pocket beach, a beautiful little cove situated within the gated grounds. While you will not find coral formations that equal Kapalua Bay (just 2.3 miles north), you will be able to snorkel among schools of reef fish, swim among green turtles and yes, just lay out on a sandy beach without leaving the resort.

For variety, both Kahana Beach and Honokowai Beach Park are within a ten minute walk. And the best snorkeling in Maui is just 2.3 miles north.

We have a very large heated swimming pool suitable for lap swimming, a newly surfaced tennis court, putting green and a shuffle board court. In the lanai-like lobby you will find a ping-pong table, an honor library, an activity booking desk and reception. There is an on-site coin laundry and free parking. A popular feature of the resort is the four BBQ grill area situated on the ocean’s edge. Watching the sun set over the sea and the lighting of the tiki torches, while grilling, is a memorable experience.


Conveniently located, Kuleana is just 2 miles from Kaanapali / Whalers Village and 6 miles from Lahaina. Both provide a wide variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities. If you don’t want to drive, there is a bus to take you to both for $2. Within walking distance of the resort there are restaurants, cafes, a farmers market, a fish market (everything caught that day!) a supermarket and even an ABC store. Kuleana is located between Kapalua and Kaanapali, which means there are four golf courses within three miles of the condo and another ten courses within a 40 minute drive.

The kitchen and bath were remodeled in 10/2015 with new granite countertops, bamboo cabinets, stainless appliances new tile surrounds, and a wak-in shower with floating glass doors.

                                                                  Chicago Gary & BonnieBartlett, IL. USA

                                                                  As we all know there are many choices in places to stay while visiting Maui. Don't pass this one up. Everything was as advertised, including the view from the balcony while having an evening glass or wine. The owner was immediatley responsive to any issue. The beach, is home to daily visits of 1-5 turtles. They get very "up close and personal". It is hard to remember they are protected and we need to stay at least 10 feet away. This may mean you might have to relocate on the beach. We have, over the years, stayed at many locations on Maui, would never give a second thought of looking for any other condo. Thanks Jim.

                                                                  Wir waren 10 Tage im Kuleana Resort und es war einfach nur traumhaft. Die Unterkunft war genauso wie beschrieben. Der Blick vom Balkon ist unbezahlbar und die täglichen Sonnenuntergänge waren reinste Postkartenromantik. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und der kleine Privatstrand tut sein übriges. Mit den Riesenschildkröten zu schwimmen und ihnen unter Wasser bei der Nahrungsaufnahme zu zu schauen war ebenfalls ein Highlight. Überhaupt ist Maui eine wunderschöne Insel, die von der Natur her so viel zu bieten hat, dass sie zu Recht zu den schönsten der Welt zählt.

                                                                  Wir sind viel auf der Insel unterwegs gewesen und haben uns diverse Resorts und Strandabschnitte angeschaut. Am Ende haben wir immer wieder festgestellt, dass es im Kuleana am schönsten ist.

                                                                  Von daher uneingeschränkte Weiterempfehlung unsererseits.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for your review. I would like to share it with my English speaking guests.


                                                                  We stayed 10 days at the Kuleana Resort and it was just fantastic. The accommodation was exactly as described. The view from the balcony is priceless and the daily sunsets were the purest postcard romance. The area is very well maintained and the small private beach does the rest. To swim with the giant turtles and to look at them under water feding was also a highlight. Maui is a beautiful island that has so much to offer from nature that it is rightly one of the most beautiful in the world.

                                                                  We have traveled a lot on the island and have looked at various resorts and beach areas. In the end, we have always noticed that the Kuleana is the most beautiful.

                                                                  Therefore, our recommendation is unlimited.

The place is beautiful, and the ocean right outside of the resort is a hot spot for sea turtles. its a great area, with great service, and amazing all around. Highly recommend staying here!
