Guestbook comments from the owner

What a glorious vacation! We have visited Maui a number of times and this is by far our favorite spot. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place with us. From the first day here we have been planning when we can bring our husbands. The ocean view is like no other. We adore the warm quiet pool and everything is within a few short steps. This is a gorgeous hidden treasure.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! Perfect, quiet location with water, beach and grass right in front. We loved watching the whales from the lanai. Everything was clean and exactly as explained. Would love to go there again!

Relaxing Condo with Stunning View

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this Kuleana condo in September of 2015. The first week we were there, the tradewinds had stopped, so having air condition was quite welcome. The condo had all the amenities we needed. I was able to catch some fun waves out back and my wife snorkeled on the inside reef/rocks area.

We would definitely like to stay at this property again and highly recommend it for those staying on Maui.

Gorgeous oceanfront view!

  • 4 of 5

The unit sits on a small bluff overlooking the private beach with a great view of Molokai.

We immediately saw a large turtle relaxing in the late afternoon sun. The view is lovely.

The unit was very clean and I loved that it had a lot of random supplies.

(Some coffee, spices, sun screen, a sewing kit! etc.) Not totally barren like other units I've rented. They also passed my thoughtfulness test. When I looked in the freezer, there was ice!! Thank you for a very nice stay!!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks and rarely left the resort! Everything we needed or wanted in our relaxing Hawaiian vacation was right there! We will definitely stay in condo 408 again, God willing, many more times!

Low-key and Secluded- away from the tourists/busy typical resorts =s Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

Kuleana Resort 5/23-28/17 First trip to Maui and a fantastic choice we made! Such a fabulous place to stay! Wonderful sunset views! We'd love to come back with our kids and rent both units!

Starting with the few negatives as there are so many positives!

Cons:

-Refrigerator door needs to be fixed (afraid opening will break it)

-Living room/kitchen shades could be darker OR windows should be tinted- can see thru at nite. (if you want privacy while lights are just dimmed)

-Lights didn't help roaches stay away, but we know that is everywhere. (not sure if traps or spray would help)

Pros:

-Access instructions helpful and information provided to get to room was perfect!

-All items needed are provided from what is listed online in addition to a first aid kit, playing cards, Maui books with all the info needed to know, and more!

-408 is right in front of the ladder leading to many turtles, as well as rocks; so be very careful! There is a shower rinse off out front too. The ocean in front with waves is for those that SUP-Surf, not great for surfing or SUP. Can snorkel, but the best spot we found was a 10 or less minute drive north to. Market & food nearby, a bit south- 3 minute drive.

-the Namalu Beach/cliff house on Bay Dr -free parking at the Montage Kapalua Bay resort. A small walk thru the trail from parking lot.

-Great spot nearby we found for swimming & SUP is Kahana Beach resort- parking lot and is a 2 minute drive, 10 minute walk.

-Napili Bay is okay too, which is between Kahana & Namau. Markets, postal, coffee & food around the corner.

-If you're a shopper, Lahaina Harbor is your spot- tons of places to shop all down Front St, food too and you can visit the museum & Banyan tree.

-Slaughterhouse Beach & Two tide pools, north of Napili. (need hiking shoes for tide pools & books provided have all the info)

-If you will be cooking, l recommend making your first stop at Costco. Maui Tacos in Napili was good, however Aloha Mixed Plate- next to the Old Lahaina Luau was the best!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments for items that need to addressed. Will have handyman check refrigerator door. We have a new window covering ordered. As far as window tint, this is not possible due to association is responsible for windows. Our pest control is quarterly and managed by the association. The month of May is the first time we have had reports of cockroaches which we took immediate action to get resolved. I contacted the site manager and requested a heavy spray be done in our condo and building. The pest control did quarterly spray the first week of June which included a heavy spray in our condos and in the 400 building. In addition, pest control is scheduled for an additional spray mid-June. We will make sure that this is resolved.
