Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim and Kathy, Just wanted to drop a note to let you folks know that we truly enjoyed our stay in 407!We knew for certain that we wanted to avoid a “resort type atmosphere”… we really appreciated the quiet setting and very close proximity to the ocean. My son and I spent approx. 6 hours per day taking underwater photos, as we explored the coastline (from the ladder to points North). The weather was fantastic until the eve of our departure. And “the quake” added some memorable excitement to the trip… closed it out with a bang I suppose. All in all, super experience!We all appreciated our stay, particularly in the setting of your place… and look forward to booking again next year!

Marvelous Maui Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kuleana -- the Dow's unit is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The views from the lanai are breathtaking - even when the skies are overcast. The unit is well stocked with kitchen essentials (though I'd recommend bringing any special knives if you plan to cook). The Kuleana facilities are attentively maintained -- one can barbeque daily without having to clean the grill -- in addition to enjoying the beach, pool, and other amenities. We enjoyed many beach walks, visits to snorkeling locations, meals at Maui Crewing Co. and the opportunity to buy fresh fruit and fish locally. Thank you Dow family!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This most gorgeous condo was the absolute highlight of our holiday! It opens directly out onto the ocean such that we saw many humpback whales passing by as we watched stunning sunsets over the water. The private steps into the ocean where the green sea turtles swim are also just moments from the condo. The condo is beautifully presented with everything you could want and is blissfully quiet and secure. This is a truly relaxing sanctuary!

The property was in excellent condition. The ocean vista was perfect and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 9 days. We enjoyed the easy accessibility to the ocean, swimming pool, and parking lot. Two minor inconviences were we had difficulty getting the tv to work. We called Jim and he was able to guide us and it worked for that evening only. Another minor issue was that the flat sheet in the bed had a shredded tear and as the week went on it tore some more. Overall we loved our visit and hope to return.

Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in unit 407 in October; 2017 and in January, 2018. Kuleana Resort is one of the most well kept properties we’ve stayed at. This unit has an amazing view, is well stocked and has the most comfortable bed!

A few things to be aware of: the internet is extremely slow. This was a “working vacation” for my husband and it was difficult for him to get to business. The second thing is (and of course no fault of the owners) the designated smoking area is just below and to the left of the unit. We had no problem with this in October but during our January visit, smoke made its way to the unit. I ended up with a bad cough and sore throat. The close proximity to the smoking area is the only reason we will not stay there again, but otherwise you can’t get any closer to the water or a better view!

My family stayed in both 407 & 408 for a Maui Christmas. It was absolutely perfect!! Condos are very comfortable and has everything you need.

Lots of fun times watching turtles and the whales were very active right in front of our units.

Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Very clean resort and the best pool ever!! Thank you again Kathy & Jim. We will be booking our next trip soon.

A true paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jim and Kathy,

We truly appreciated our stay in your condo's #407 and #408! They were clean, comfortable, well stocked and in the perfect location for us to enjoy Maui. It was also great to meet you upon our arrival!

With the recent loss of my sister, we all needed this get-away. Having the adjoining units allowed my son and his wife to have some time for themselves while giving us the option of being together as much as we wanted.

We ate dinner in one of the units every night after enjoying the sights and sounds of Lahaina & the western coast during the day. We met some interesting people and saw both turtles and whales (even tho our stay was slightly before the season!) Some weather challenges prevented us from doing everything we had hoped to experience - but relax we did! I am sure we will be back to enjoy this paradise and your great property.

Thanks again,

Marla & Mike
