Oceanfront west Maui condo!

Aloha Paradise:

One of the best oceanfront west Maui condos on a magical island for your perfect vacation

- Oceanfront; unobstructed views and panoramic vistas of sunsets, ocean life, and neighboring islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i

- Top floor premium condo with private balcony for lounging / dining / enjoying the sunshine and the view

- Just steps away from two quiet and idyllic beaches; enjoy sunshine and swimming at the private pool

- Perfect for a relaxing getaway and/or activities: snorkeling, surfing, boogie boarding or just lounging in the water with a float

- Incredible wildlife: snorkel with sea turtles; whale watching from the lanai (seasonal)

- Less than 10 minute drive from the best shopping, golfing, restaurants, and nightlife on the island

- Or, just stay 'home' at your Aloha Paradise and grill your own dinner while watching the sunset on another perfect day in Maui

This is a beautiful one-bedroom condo on the highly-desirable leeward part of north-west Maui. One of the few units at this resort property that can boast of a completely unobstructed ocean view. In fact, this ocean-front property showcases panoramic vistas of the islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i, while offering guests regular rainbow sightings, as well as magical sunsets every night of your stay. Indeed, with the location just steps -- yes, steps -- from the shoreline, you can also enjoy seasonal whale watching and year-round turtle sightings, right from your balcony (or you 'lanai' as it is called in Hawaii).

Enjoy both sunrise breakfasts with excellent Kona coffee and breath-taking sunsets with a glass of champagne right on the lanai of this condo. Or, if you prefer, take a stroll along our beautifully-landscaped and lush grounds, highlighted at dusk by tiki torches, to experience Maui's famed and fabulous sunsets with that special someone. During the day, enjoy the sunshine sitting next to the pool, or try snorkeling at one of the two idyllic beaches accessible to the left and right of the turtle-friendly property shoreline.

Inside this premium unit, everything you need is available -- from kitchen ware to towels and linen. The kitchen and bathroom are highly upgraded with granite counter-tops and tile flooring; the air-conditioned bedroom and main living area (with pull-out couch if you’re bringing a 'keiki,' which is Hawaiian for child) are tastefully decorated in keeping with contemporary times. Outside the condo, the amenities are plentiful, including a large swimming pool, tennis courts, private snorkeling area, numerous barbecue areas, beautifully landscaped grounds, and free parking (along with on-site laundry facilities if you care to stay a good long while).

This condo is situated in a highly-sought west Maui location -- in Honokowai with Lahaina and Ka'anapali directly to the south and Napili and Kapalua minutes away to the north. There is convenient access to amenities, shopping, restaurants, beaches, and major thoroughfares just a stone's throw away. As an added bonus, there are no high-rise buildings close by to create 'visual pollution' in the immediate area.

There are many ocean view condos out there, but there are few exceptional ocean front options that tick every box in the beach lover's list. If you’re looking for a magical getaway, you will never forget the wonderful time you will spend here. This one is the Good one' (as attested by the many repeat guests in the rental program for this premium vacation condo) - don't miss out!

As we say in Maui: 'Maui no ka oi' or Maui is the best!

About Dr. Denise Coleman

Aloha! I am a professional who works hard and plays hard. I work part of the time on the mainland but this property is my Maui home! Even when I am not in Hawaii, I make it a point to 'practice Aloha' and I hope that I can extend that 'Aloha spirit' to you!

Why Dr. Denise Coleman chose Lahaina

This condo is not simply a rental property to me. When I am not working, this is where I spend my life. I think it is a perfect piece of Aloha Paradise. I love the idea that it can be shared with other people who also appreciate the unique peace, tranquility, charm, and beauty of Maui -- and OF COURSE -- the Hawaiian Aloha spirit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for sharing your condo. The view from the lanai was beautiful... amazing sunsets to morning coffee watching the whales and the turtles. A wonderful place to experience our first visit to Maui. Mahalo!" (These guests stayed April 16-23, 2014)

Perfect spot and responsive owner (so helpful during Hurricane Lane)

  • 5 of 5

In addition to the amazing view from the lanai, the seaturtles swimming down below, and the clean, well-stocked condo -- Dr. Coleman was incredibly helpful, communicative, and thoughtful during the hurricane that threatened the island. She was available 24/7, told us not to worry about checking out on schedule, and connected us with someone on the ground to help. We plan to come right back here for our next visit!

Turtle, turtle, turtles.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. The area in front of the condo happens to be a place the turtles like to feed so it was lovely to watch them up close. The only down side was that there is only air conditioning in the bedroom.

Turtles Galore

  • 5 of 5

The pictures in the post are great but trust me, they don't do this place justice. The condo sits right above the water with views of Lanai and Molokai. It is plenty spacious for two and maybe a third person. We really liked having a kitchen and a BBQ. We went to Times Supermarket down the street and picked up food for the week to save a little money from dining out. The location is outstanding. You can swim and snorkel in the water at the resort or you can make the short drive to Kapalua. Make sure to hit up Boss Frogs for snorkels and fins. Fins are a must. They just make the snorkeling experience more enjoyable since you can cover more area much easier. We highly recommend Kapalua but try to go pretty early as parking fills up quickly. Maui brewing company is walkable and has a great selection of beers. They also serve food.

Turtles - For reference, our trip was in early April. We did see some whales but sea turtles were everywhere. They were on the sand and in the water. In the water they tend to come out of nowhere and scare the crap out of you. Haha! For us, it was mainly scary because of the warnings to keep your distance at least 10 feet from the turtles. Apparently that warning is only for us people because the turtles certainly do not keep their distance. Jokes aside, the sea turtles will swim near you. Enjoy their presence.

We highly recommend staying here.

Great week in Maui - super location.

  • 4 of 5

The Kuleana resort is a lovely, quiet place. We enjoyed the views of the turtle santuary from the lanai and whale sightings were an evening occurrence! Sunsets were amazing!

Some adjacent residents seem to be very noise sensitive - they don’t seem to appreciate the transient renters. Our impression is that this is an older community of retired people. It worked fine for us - that’s just our impression. The grounds were very pretty and immaculately kept.

The unit was very adequate and comfortable but not as updated as we thought it would be. It was nice to be able to make simple meals here rather than going out all the time.

We enjoyed walking down to Bad Ass coffee in the mornings and the Farmers Market is a great spot to pick up something yummy to eat.

Overall we really enjoyed our week on Maui! A cruise with Pacific Whale Foundation and an island tour with Maui Air really topped it off!

If we come back, we will probably opt for a unit closer to a beach. But we would recommend this unit at Kuleana.

Owner's Response: I am really happy that that these guests enjoyed their stay at my condo which is geared towards guests who are looking for a quiet, idyllic, and quintessentially charming Hawaiian experience. As I tell all my guests before they sign off on the House Rules, this is not the type of venue for folks wanting a "Spring Break" scene. Likewise, when you opt to book via VRBO at a condo, you're renting from an owner, which means that there very likely are full time residents who live on propperty. I want to make a point of clarifying the guest's claim that they would opt for a unit closer to the beach. This IS a beach front / water front. Let me emphasize that again: It is OCEAN FRONT. The photos are self explanatory. The condo is located in the center bank of units that have the most clear ocean front views of all the units on property. Access to the beach is only a few steps away, to the south or north (left or right). Literally, a handful of steps either way. The value of being in the center bank is that you have the best views of the ocean and without the direct beach traffic right in front. This is the type of unit suited to guests who go to Hawaii for the view and also value their privacy. It might be helpful to also note that, as with all beaches in this part of Maui, the amount of actual sand on the beach is determined by nature. So if a big winter storm blows through, the sand may be washed away. Nature takes care of replenishing the sand over the course of the ensuing weeks. I've had engagements, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries celebrated at my little piece of paradise and I encourage all guests to come to Maui and enjoy the Aloha experience. Aloha!

Car: recommended

This is a beautiful one-bedroom condo on the highly-desirable leeward part of north-west Maui, at one of the most sought-after resorts in the area. With a completely unobstructed ocean view and the shoreline just steps away, you can enjoy seasonal whale watching and year-round turtle sightings right from your 'lanai'. Inside the condo, all amenities are provided from Internet access to flat-screen television and DVD; there is also a full kitchen for your use and an air-conditioned bedroom in this fully-upgraded condo. Outside, ocean-facing grills are available for guest use. There is also a rock jetty from which guests can access a prime snorkeling ocean area with turtles and rich marine life to be seen. The oceanfront area of the resort is suitable for surfing, paddle boards, and boogie boards when the waves permit. The pool is available for use by guests along with tennis courts. A grocery store, convenience shop, coffee shop, take out deli, fresh fish market, as well as a farmer's market are all available within walking distance from the condo. Excellent cafes, restaurants, and nightlife are also located just minutes away. Surfboard, boogie board, and snorkeling equipment rentals are to be found nearby. As an added bonus, there is free parking on site. Finally, while Maui is one of the safest places on earth, guests can sleep well at night knowing that this resort provides on-site security.
