About David Tobkin

We decided on this property because of the beautiful landscaping, incredible private beach, large pool and inviting walks. We decided on our unit because of the large size of the unit, over a 1,000 square feet and incredible views. We enjoy the privacy of our own entrance and large private lanai to relax during the day. We found a place we love and want to share with others. A place that really feels like home.

David Tobkin purchased this condo in 2013

Why David Tobkin chose West Maui

Many of the condominium projects feel and look like a hotel with some landscaping. This property offers so much more. Barbeques located with views of the islands of Lanai and Molokai, inviting walks along the beach front as the sun sets and the torches begin to light up the night. Even better a ocean swim in the late afternoon, and enjoy the company of sea turtles as they play in the surf. The west side of Maui provides so many beautiful sunsets, and this property never disappoints.

What makes this condo unique

When I think of west Maui, I think of beautiful sunsets. This property offers so much more. The landscape is incredible, it invites you to not only walk along the beach front but explore the many variety of plants and the colors brought to life by the warming sunlight. At night the beauty doesn't end, the torches light the way to a long walk along the beach or a chance to sit on one of the benches available to enjoy the sound of the surf. It feels like your almost sitting in the surf.

Beautiful Maui Charm

  • 4 of 5

This is our third time back to the Kuleana, first time staying in this particular unit. We were impressed by the gorgeous view from the lanai, the spaciousness of the condo, and how lovely everything was inside the unit. The two bedroom beds are very comfy with very nice bedding, the living room TV is a modern "smart" tv for those who would like to use their Netflix account, and the refrigerator has an ice machine...big bonus on the island! If you want a quiet, peaceful place to relax and lay on the beach or snorkel with the sea turtles (they come nap on the beach every day) then I highly recommend David's unit. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the sofa bed mattress could use a cushiony cover of some sort, as the springs were uncomfortable for my son to sleep on, but not an issue for those who wouldn't need that extra bed. We would love to return to this fabulous vacation home.

BEST VIEWS of the entire complex

  • 5 of 5

Sit from your lanai and watch turtles (honu's) swim !! This is a beautiful condo that accommodated 6 people well. 2 slept on the couch !! Nice open kitchen and living room design. Would definitely stay here again.

Owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. Thank you

The Kuleana complex is centrally located near Lahaina and close to Kaanapali Beach shopping, dining and many ocean activities plus close to great snorkeling. Snorkel at the condo beaches or other beaches nearby. A FABULOUS week with family !!

Family trip

  • 5 of 5

Our first family trip out to Maui was fantastic. The accommodations are wonderful and as you can see close to the beach. This beach location continually has sea turtles which makes it great for snorkeling.

We will most definitely be booking a return trip.

Cheers

beautiful place and condo!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed this beautiful place and condo! It is as advertised, and being there in Jan/Feb it was pretty cool to look out from the lanai and see whales doing their thing. I could have done that for hours- bring binoculars to try and see some "up close". We used the very nice Pool and BBQs, and of course our 4 year old enjoyed the pool more than anything else. We were a little concerned about the beach being washed up or very tiny, and indeed we did not spend any days on the little beach but I imagine with different conditions it could have been really nice for our young family. We did see a couple of turtles, but not up close due to the waves being high.

The unit did not have a pack n play for us to use and we bought one at K-mart for $70 rather than rent one for more than that. It was frustrating to me that they didn't offer one to use (like every other place on our itinerary), and we offered to sell ours back to the owner for half what we paid ($35) and they were not interested. Again, strange business decision to me but not a huge cost I guess. Note that you go through a management company rather than direct to owner, which is a different feel and experience than renting houses or units in other areas/islands. Not necessarily bad but the interaction is limited. Another example was an advertised cooler in the unit and I had to call/email to get access to one (but not immediately available).

We might stay here again if we wanted this sort of resort-light experience, but we would also be tempted to try a different style of rental. Kuleana is a good spot through- a nice balance between quiet and resort.

Owner's Response: We rent our unit through a management company and direct. So I believe you dealt with the on site management company. Space is at a premium and storing various articles is difficult. Individuals want surf boards bikes fishing poles and other items. We do our best. As far as the beach size it changes with the tides. I do not advertise a cooler is available. I usually have one on site, but they keep disappearing. The condo is meant to be more of a home feeling than a resort, each have their own appeal. I like both. I am glad the overall experience was good one.

Map

Location is everything. Unobstructed views of the ocean from the kitchen, living room and lanai make this a spectacular venue! Walk along the grass that parallels the ocean and be amazed at the panoramic views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. Absorb the hues of ocean blues, greens, and colors of the plants, flowers and trees. At night be guided by the torches that light your way to the romantic sounds of the ocean. The Kueana Resort will give you a feeling of old Hawaii, and not a feeling of being in a densely populated hotel environment.

The condo is located a stones throw from the beach, ocean, pool barbecue area and tennis facility. Since the Condo is on the west side of the island, enjoy the many beautiful sunsets. During the whale season (end of December through April) watch the whales breach, blow and splash again and again. Better yet put on your swim
