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!

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!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

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

Location cannot be beat

  • 4 of 5

The pluses: The owners are great to work with. The resort is stunning, and if you want to enjoy serene pool time, there's no better place. I also think the price is very fair. They have nice beach chairs and a cooler, though even sitting on the lanai in the morning feels magical. It's a largely older crowd, which means it's quiet and impeccably clean. The grounds are immaculately kept up and the pool is pristine. As promised, you can always see throngs of sea turtles by taking a few steps from the back of the property. Plenty of towels. Comfortable bed. It's so nice that the pool is basically next to the unit, which meant that it was never a hassle to take multiple swims a-day. The location is great, and you can walk to delicious coffee and organic produce.

Things to be aware of: The unit is a great place to park your stuff, but not the best place to lounge around. It might officially sleep 4 with the sofa bed, but it felt a little cramped for even the two of us plus one 7 year old. (I wouldn't recommend it for four adults, unless two of them didn't mind the heat, and they didn't plan on spending much time in the unit.) As with all of the units on the property (and probably everywhere on the island), only the bedroom has A/C, and it meant that I rarely wanted to hang out in the living room, even with the fan on. (I tend to run hot.) There isn't great noise insulation from the adjoining unit, but it's a reasonable level of noise, and this isn't a resort where people party loudly.

To sum up: I highly recommend this property. This was my second stay and I would pick this property again for my next visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We agree that the condo is ideal for 2 adults and no more than 3 adults. The listing states that 3 adults is maximum we rent to. We do rent to up to 2 additional children if they are not adult size. You are correct, the resorts bylaws state the AC can only be in the bedroom. This is very common on Maui - some resorts do not allow AC due to the high cost of electricity. We have ceiling fans in both the bedroom and living area. Also solar shades outside on the lanai and inside. Since the condo is directly on the ocean, there is a couple of hours in the afternoon that the sun shines directly into the condo. We suggest that guests pull down both the lanai shades and inside shades during this time. In most months, the trade winds will blow which keep the condo cooler. August and beginning of September are the hotter months in Maui and the trade winds do have a tendency not to blow at times. However year round, the mornings and evenings tend to be perfect for sitting outside (or inside) and enjoying the beautiful ocean front view. Again, thank you so much for your review and repeat business. We truly look forward to having you be our guests again in the future.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect spot to experience rest and relaxation this is the one. The beach is literally steps away, and the patio is perfect for viewing those gorgeous Hawaiian sunsets. We'll definitely be booking here again in the future.

Front Row Seat to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Very excited to find a property so close to the water. We saw 2 turtles right at the ladder right when checking in. Enjoyed all the amentities and appreciated the extras like lawn chairs and cooler.
