Kahana Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Aloha! Our Hale is your Hale. Please enjoy your stay with us. Our quiet and private condominium has one of the most spectacular unobstructed views on the island. This vacation home is directly on the oceanfront and is Eco-friendly. You can't stay closer to the ocean anywhere else on the island.

This condominium has been newly remodeled and redecorated with authentic tropical-style Hawaiian furniture and art. The art throughout the home is all original from local artists. Crown molding and custom color paint are are just a few of the textures you can expect. The electronics are all new and so is the furniture which is very comfortable. A very large 46' Hi-Definition TV has been added as well as CD/DVD stereo system. You can hear and see the ocean from all living areas and the lanai. When you are in the bedroom you can hear the ocean as you fall asleep on your new (2014) King size pillow top mattress to the gentle rhythm of the waves rolling into shore. If you choose you can also watch TV on a smaller bedroom television mounted on the wall. Often you can expect the natural cool tropical breezes and fragrance to drift through this unit soothing you into even deeper sleep.

We also have a private snorkeling area located here at the resort as well as one of the largest pools. We call the ocean bay in front of our unit 'Turtle Bay' because of the abundance of turtles that call it home.

The gardens throughout this nature friendly complex are spacious for walks and the most beautiful and well maintained as well. And if you are looking forward to dining at an exclusive one of a kind setting with the most incredible views and atmosphere, then we suggest dining on your own 'private' romantic lanai. The tiki torches are lit up as the sun goes down and there is no better place to be than in your own private paradise. 4 BBQs are available to the guest to cook fresh island fish, or whatever you prefer. During whale season this home has the advantages of optimal views of the whales as well as the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

If you enjoy local tropical produce and like to walk, the farmers market is not far away and is across from a beach park in this pedestrian friendly location.

This vacation home will please the most discerning individuals and is of the highest quality, detail, and is offered at the absolute best value to be found. We believe you will not find a luxurious unit like this one that starts for less than $400 a night, and still will not have this view. We are absolutely sure you will be happy with your decision to vacation here. Please be our guest, come feel the Aloha!

About Jerry Kelly

I love the outdoors and nothing seems closer to nature than being here in the front row for it all. Life is good!

Jerry Kelly purchased this condo in 1999

Why Jerry Kelly chose Kahana

I have never seen or experienced a view or a feeling of Aloha and relaxation like this. It feels like god touched the earth right here! When people visit this unit that actually live here in Hawaii, even they say they have never seen a place that had this view or privacy!!

What makes this condo unique

This property can be completely private if you should choose. It has outdoor private space as well as indoor private space with the great outdoors feeling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha!What a lovely place! The beauty and vitality of Maui is right outside. We snorkeled daily and swam with several sea turtles right out back! Look for them at dusk. I would add to the suggestions previously noted: health food and veggie goodies are the first market on your left toward Lahaina (farmers Market). Definitely enjoy fresh ahi on the grill. Set out for Hana or Haleakala early to have more time. Mama’s Fish House, although very expensive, has always provided world-class dinning. Slack key music on Tuesdays at the Ritz Carlton though pricey, is a genuine Hawaiian musical goodtime. Enjoy and hope to return to write again, one of the nicest places we’ve stayed.Don & DianeTacoma WA.P.S. Lovely Art on the walls, very beautiful!!

Kuleana is Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with our one week stay in unit 614 at the Kuleana.

The property is right on the ocean with beautiful views of Molokai and Lanai.

Being on the second floor worked out fine as it is only a half flight of stairs to the front door. What we enjoyed most is the view, the property, the pool (very large and generally quiet) and the sandy as well as rocky ocean access, good for both swimming and snorkeling. The one bedroom units at Kuleana are less than 500 square feet and Jerry has done a very good job with making good use of the limited space, with good placement of furniture and the addition of an extra counter/breakfast bar with seating. Overall we were very happy with this unit and would have given it a 5 Star rating, except the housekeeping left something to be desired. It didn't appear there had been any dusting done for months, as there were thick layers of dust covering the air conditioner, fans, picture frames, etc.

Overall I would recommend this unit as the owner was responsive to my concerns and otherwise it was very nice. Enjoyed the turtle carvings, which reminded us of the amazing turtles swimming right off of the Kuleana property! Mahalo Jerry!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this place for any "couple" that wants to be in the heart of it all in Kaanapali. The process with Jerry was easy, convenient and everything was as depicted. The location is unbeatable and the view is amazing. Thank Jerry for making our recent trip to Maui such a success!

Most relaxing vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for just over 2 weeks this February and it wasn't long enough! The Kuleana Resort is truly spectacular. The grounds are impeccable, the pool is warm and the ocean is beautiful. We loved the view from the lanai and enjoyed the sunsets and the moon over the ocean each night. Every morning we made our way to the beach and played in the waves and swam with sea turtles! Some days it was calm enough to snorkel right outside the condo! We watched whales jump and slap their tails almost constantly!

The condo itself is pretty basic, but functional. We stayed as a couple with our daughter and we had just enough room, but I certainly wouldn't recommend any more than 3 people. 2 would probably be better. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedroom came in handy a few nights. The only downside was that I found it a little bit cluttered and the wifi was sporadic at times.

All in all I would definitely recommend this resort and this condo in particular to anyone looking for a peaceful beautiful relaxing vacation. We cannot wait to return.

We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay. The property overall was great, the only issue we had was the coffee maker. It never seemed to work correctly. We would definitely come back.

Really great location!

  • 4 of 5

This property is all about location, location, location. It is arguably the closest to the water on Maui. You have great ocean views of both Molokai and Lanai, which add much interest instead of blank horizon. The condo is small, fine for a couple, no more. There is a A/C "window" unit in the bedroom, which you'll want at night since the unit faces due west and the afternoon sun warms up considerably 85 degrees in early May. (I take along a travel thermometer, which is accurate). There are no curtains for the front sliding glass patio doors. I was able to get the outside patio pull down "blinds" to work (others have said they didn't work) which you can see through easily from inside the unit, but don't provide a great deal of shade. You'll want to leave the front door open to generate the "tropical breezes" that do eventually cool the unit as evening progresses. Note that as anyone comes through the lobby, they are lined up exactly to look through your condo. The ladder for water entry is problematic as the steps are the same 2" diameter round metal as the sides. We would have expected the steps to be more typical of a pool ladder with a wide horizontal section for each step. We say several people approach the ladder but saw no one actually use it. Best water entry is at the extreme south section of the property which is easy. As many folks pointed out, the "beach" section to the north comes and goes with the tide. Snorkeling is only fair as the water is quite shallow.

On the positive side, the property grounds are absolutely lovely with a wide variety of tropical plants, scrubs and trees, all seem to be well cared for. Their are 4 gas grills that saw heavy use each day. The following morning, a worker cleans them very well, "ready for inspection". Amazing to me, as we have seem so many times at other resort properties, folks use them and walk away, no one cleans them. All in all, Kuleana is a great value for the money and a great way to enjoy West Maui.

Good value. GREAT view.

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, small, quiet, low key resort/complex. It was a wonderful week of relaxation and reprieve with a stunning view. We enjoyed coffee on the lani every morning with the whales and the sea turtles. We saw both every single day. The unit itself is a little dated in some ways and in need of a few TLC items, mainly the bathroom, and the shades on the lani, which are completely unusable in their current state. Luckily it wasn't too hot the week we were there. Overall the unit was quite clean, though there were a few things that could use some detail cleaning/dusting. The reality is that within about 12 hours you are in island mode and every little nit picky thing you noticed upon arrival fades into the background while every beautiful rainbow, sunset, and whale breech take the forefront.

Some reviewers mentioned snorkel gear and there is a picture of the lani in the listing that shows quite a bit more outdoor gear than is currently there now. We did leave behind 2 sets of snorkel gear for future travelers, as well as some sand toys. The multiple coolers were much appreciated, as well as the umbrellas, and beach chairs. There is still 1 boogie board.

As for sleeping accommodations, they were adequate, though not luxurious. The bed was not terribly comfortable, but not bad. Coming from a memory foam mattress at home, it was rather firm for us. There was more road noise that could be heard from the bedroom than I would have liked, but it was quiet enough during the night. We were pleased to find a folding sleeping pad for our 4 year old that we were able to use in the bedroom.

The kitchen was fine and fairly well equipped. However there was not a single condiment in the fridge, so be prepared to buy EVERYTHING for cooking. There were a few spices, which was nice. We grilled EVERY night. Do yourself a favor and stop at the fish market up the road. REALLY excellent, but not cheap. The farmer's market had the most amazing mangos (locally grown) I've ever had. I wish we had bought less food at Costco and more at the fish market and farmer's market.

The beach... changes... a lot. We saw the beach gain and loose a good 6 ft in one night. The pictures in the listing show more beach than was there during any point during our stay. That being said, both beaches were lovely and enjoyed almost daily. The turtles still love them too.

This is a quiet resort with an older demographic. It is not a party place. We loved our week in here!

Owner's Response: Aloha Clare, We are happy you enjoyed your stay here at the Kuleana Resort. Thank you for taking the time to share your families experience during your stay. We understand how traveling with our families over long distances can accumulate not only excitement but also stresses that can put us on the defensive when we first arrive at our destination and it can take a time to decompress upon arrival. We take every guests concern serious and depend on their comments to maintain the highest standards which have kept us at the very top for "best accommodations". We were of course concerned when we read portions of your review that was not as you expected. We believe the pictures would have disclosed the style of the unit and that it is how you made your decision to stay here. If it was not to your taste or you felt areas were dated; the pictures fully disclose what you should have expected. We were a bit confused at your comments on the "dated bathroom" as we just completed an $8500 renovation immediately prior to your arrival during my personal stay. Also the bed may have been firm due to the fact it also was replaced brand new prior to your stay and is the top of the line King size Sealy Posturpedic memory foam pillow top mattress. I can’t imagine more luxurious sleeping accommodations but realize it is impossible to please even the same two people sleeping in the same bed as each may have different firmness or softness concerns. As for road noise, we pride ourselves as the quietest and most private unit in the entire complex. We are one of the only two buildings that are not built on a road or have a parking lot directly outside, but instead completely ocean front on the water. Also responding to the beach toys, they need to not be left behind because they tend to accumulate and cause clutter and sand debris. We do have a few items for the beach that are neatly stored on hangers on the lanai. They may change from guest to guest as needed to be replaced from what was originally there as a courtesy when something gets broken or lost. Most guests we find appreciate the clean organized and un-cluttered mess from to many beach toys. It is our intension to provide each guest with exactly the same quality stay as stated and as show in the pictures. So far to date "all" of our guests have thanked us in great reviews stating this unit "WAS AS PROMISED". We understand it is not possible to please every guest 100% of the time, but it is our intention to continue to try

Aloha and Welcome to the Kuleana Resort. You will not find a better view or be closer to the ocean than this unit. You can expect complete privacy, quiet and clean accommodations. A brand new pillow top King size bed in the bedroom and a new queen size sofa sleeper in the living area also brand new with a great mattress. We have a wonderful private beach here at the resort sometimes even two. We also boast the largest pool and heated here on the west end of Maui. The grounds are EMACULANTLY maintained along with the barbeques to be topped off by tiki torches. If tennis is your game or shuffle board, ping pong we have it! If quiet time or reading is your expectation we have an extensive library and lounge in the lobby area. Whatever your expectations are we are confident they will not only be met but exceeded. Mahalo for choosing the Kuleana Resort.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, shuffleboard
