This map illustrates the locations of some of the places we use and visit most frequently when we are at the condo.
We love Maui, and have been coming for years. We especially love upper west Maui, where the views of the neighbor islands of Molokai and Lanai are unmatched elsewhere on Maui - or any other tropical location we have been to. The Kulakane is a small, low-rise complex in the quiet Honokowai district, between Kaanapali and Kapalua. The historic village of Lahaina, once a whaling port, is probably the most popular tourist and shopping attraction on Maui. It is a short 10-minute drive from our condo, which allows us to enjoy it when we choose, and enjoy the quiet and privacy of Honokowai when we prefer to avoid the crowds. Two of Maui's premier golf locations, Kapalua and Kaanapali, are also within an easy 10-minute drive. Surf breaks, ranging from beginner level (Laniupoko) to advanced (Honolua Bay) are also within a 15-minute drive. The Honokowai Farmer's Market is held on MWF mornings, just 200 yards from our condo. Snorkel equipment, surfboard, mopeds, and video and video rentals are all available within 1/2 mile of the condo.
Our condo directly faces the ocean, and is just 50 feet from the water's edge. From our private lanai (balcony), we see only the ocean, the neighbor islands, the beach and some of the local sea life (such as sea turtles, whales and dolphins). The lanai is really an extension of the living room - it has an overhanging roof, side walls and is carpeted, so you can comfortably enjoy it in any weather, including tropical sprinkles. We sometimes sit on the lanai, surfing the web on our laptops (via the free Wi-Fi network) and watching the surf in front of us.
There is a working office with a personal computer and wireless laser printer provided for your use. Stay in email contact with your friends back home, make your arrangements for Maui activities, take care of a few business tasks (Microsoft Office 2007 is installed on the PC), print your boarding passes.
For photos and much more information, visit our website (see links below).
Fitness centers (in Kaanapali and Lahaina), wildlife viewing of humpback whales (in season), dolphins, or see them on a snorkel or dive cruise. Hawaiian green sea turtles (some with shells up to 3 feet) can be seen every day in the water right in front of the condo.
