Property description

CONDO 322
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 RESORT
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 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.
LOCATION
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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Judy is an RN and an extraordinary cook. Jim is a playwright. They live in San Diego, but Maui has been a part of their lives forever.

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
While vacationing nearby one day, we wandered into Kuleana on our morning walk, and it was love at first sight. We had never thought of buying a condo in Maui, but long after our return home, Kuleana persisted in our memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is a peaceful bliss about the place. The little pocket cove beach, the abundance of turtles, the tiki torches in the evening, grilling fresh fish from the local market while watching the sun set, sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine while the stars come out, oh my!
