Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Beautifully remodeled 1 bedroom 1 bath oceanfront condo. Sit on your private Lanai and watch the whales and turtles by day, listen to the waves crashing and tiki torches glowing by night.
Incredibly lush, tropical grounds of Kuleana await to tantalize your senses as you walk thru the gardens or settle in to this picturesque condo and look out your floor to ceiling sliding glass doors at the magnificence and breathtaking paradise that awaits you.
You won't be disappointed...splash around in the delightful tiled pool or head to the beach and enjoy a swim...both are just steps from the front door. There is even tennis on site for those of you who want to enjoy a game.
Watch the overwhelming sunsets and enjoy your favorite beverage while you bar-b-que your fresh fish just outside your door. Or try a game of ping-pong or shuffleboard.
This condo is fully furnished and equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay in Maui. It's an amazing place to unwind, read a good book, take an afternoon nap or...surf, sail, snorkel, scuba dive, fish, parasail, horseback ride, shop, eat, experience zip-lining, swim, on and on and on. There is as much or as little to do as you desire.
The Kuleana Resort Maui boasts a truly remarkable oceanfront location, on West Maui's pristine coastline, with a gorgeous panoramic view of the Pacific ocean and the nearby islands of Molokai and Lanai offering you a rare piece of vintage Hawaii with the convenience and comfort of today. One of Maui's best kept secrets!
I hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy my home away from home as much as I do. Mahalo and Aloha

About Property Manager
I live in California but there is nothing like the beaches and the water in Maui. I love to come here to relax and enjoy the beauty. I could sit for hours watching the whales and turtles from my lanai. I really enjoy the art walk in downtown Lahaina on Friday nights and there are some great restaurants. I love to cook so grilling on the outdoor bar-b-ques is great and you'll never find a better sunset to enjoy while you cook. I love to buy fresh fish at the local fish market and fresh fruit and veges at the local farmers market just down the street.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Property Manager chose Honokowai
I came to The Kuleana with friends who own a place here. Year after year I would spend time in Maui and loved it. Finally, I decided to buy my own piece of paradise. I love coming to The Kuleana for so many reasons. The beautiful grounds, the spectacular views and because The Kuleana is peaceful and quiet. I love all the colorful landscaping and the lit tiki torches at night. The pool is the best.

Top floor unit with full length mirrors and an amazing view
We enjoyed our February stay at this Kuleana resort condo. It was very clean inside and all the basic essentials were provided.
Great view, other things could have been better.
Great ocean and Island (Molokai and Lanai) view.
Very close to the small beach.
Watching turtles feed while sitting on the lanai.
No communication about the wash machine not working, we had to discover it. There was a post it note on the washer stating the unit was "malfunctioning". After making contact by email (no phone contact number provided for problem resolution), the owner Lisa said she was "working on it". During our 2 week stay there was no follow up or resolution. We packed whatever needed washing to the on site laundry facilities.
Cigarette smokers hanging out at the barbecue area, which is immediately adjacent to unit 416. I may be overly sensitive, but considered the early morning and evening fumes unpleasant.
Close the side window in the evening so that the barbecue smoke does not come into the condo.
Do not plan on taking a hot shower, the water runs cool by the end of the first shower. A second person showering will need to be comfortable with a warm shower. We adapted by turning the shower off, scrubbing and then turning the water back on.
There are many similar properties to this one, and if we make it back to Maui, we will try a different one.
Unfortunately, the washing machine broke shortly before this guest arrived and I was notified that day. I did send the guest an email apologizing for any inconvenience. The manager was unable to find anyone to fix it because the parts were unavailable. A brand new washer/dryer was ordered but things don't happen overnight in Hawaii like they do on the mainland. There is a brand new washer/dryer in the condo now and I'm very sorry about the inconvenience for this guest. I did ask the manager to offer to pay for the onsite laundry facility for them should they need to use it.
The smoking issue should have been reported to the onsite management office or at least to me so that I could have spoken with the manager about it. I regret that this guest was affected by other inconsiderate guests.
Regarding the bbq smoke, I can't really explain that. The gas grills are located next to the condo but most guests find that convenient and I have never experienced any smoke smell nor have I had any other guest complain about it.
I will check into the hot water issue as this is the first I have ever heard about it. I have never personally experienced any problem with the hot water and I have never had any other guest complain to me about it.
Location, location, location!!!
This unit has the best view. It is a end unit that faces the ocean and you have a great view from the kitchen and the balcony. I can't say enough great things about our stay. The unit looks out over the private beach which has many large sea turtles. You can sit and watch them in the water from the balcony of the room. The unit is very modern, comfortable and has with all that you will need. We had a fabulous time and would love to go back.
This condo has an incredible view and everything you need.
We just spent 8 days in this condo and had a wonderful time. If you want to get away from those huge concrete highrises and largely poplulated complexes this it the place to be! This condo is on the 2nd level and the ocean is directly in front, not across a garden or field, it truly is right in front of you. It is a corner unit which helps make it nice & bright along with gives you the extra breeze that an inside unit might not get. We found most of the condos don't have air conditioning, except in the bedroom, and this one is no different. The condo is decorated tastefully and has everything a person needs to feel right at home along with a beautiful walk in shower. One of my favorite things was having my morning coffee on the lanai and watching the surf and being treated with the odd whale in the distance blowing or breaching - it was absolutely beautiful. This resort is gated and made up of five small walkup buildings with beautiful gardens and walkways through out. At night there are lit torches and garden lights throughout the property - all very pretty and well maintained. There is also a swimming pool which looked great but we never did use it as we wanted to check out as many beaches as we could. The location is great, with it being only a short drive to Lahaina and not to far from the northshore where the surfing competitions take place. This is the first time that we went through VRBO so were a bit nervous about sending our money and what we would find but we were really satisfied with everything and hope to return to this condo just as soon as we can - which unfortunately won't be until next winter.
There is so much to do in Maui...on-site activity center/concierge available.
