About Don Duwe

We honeymooned on Maui in 1967. and have returned for many anniversaries since that time. After 33 years of marriage we were lucky enough to purchase this condo and return for our anniversies annually now.

Don and Jane Duwe

Don Duwe purchased this condo in 2000

Why Don Duwe chose Maui

Because of the year around good weather, always in the low 80s, We can enjoy the sunny climate any time of the year. Plus this is the best area on Maui for a variety of activities and the most and best beaches. Between Kaanapali and Kapalua and Lahaina we have more activities and great restuarants on the Island yet is quit and peaceful in the Honokawai neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

We play a lot of golf, tennis and of course swim or snorkel almost daily. We also spend a lot of time just soaking up the sun `recharging our batteries` right here by the pool or on our lanai. We do get a lot of reading in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The sound of the waves, the cool trade winds and the comfort of home......these are just a few of the things that helped make a `perfect` vacation. We loved going out with Turtle John in our morning swimming with the turtles - a memory we will never forget.

Thank you for sharing your amazing Maui home with us.

Dream Vacation Come True

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a condo right on the ocean and with a great view and we found it. This condo was clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The sunset view was the most amazing I have ever seen right from our ground floor lanai. The snorkeling in front was better than the tour we booked. Tropical fish and Sea Turtles everywhere. Centrally located so its an easy commute to just about anywhere. We found that grilling some fresh local fish steaks and fillets and eating on the lanai was magical. Due to a tropical storm in Orlando, our flight was cancelled and we needed to stay an extra day and the owner, Don, was very easy to work with and immediately available by phone to help us.

The location is perfect, because its an easy drive to Kaanapali, Lahaina or Kapalua. We kept super busy with Zip Lining (Kapalua Adventures), Horseback Riding (Lahaina Stables), Helicopter (Sunshine) and the Sharaton Black Rock Luau. We also did a snorkeling adventure (Lanai Dolphin Super Rafts) but I honestly feel the snorkeling right in front of the condo was better and more convenient. We did see a pod of dolphins on the adventure though which was fantastic.

This was our 20th wedding anniversary and we returned because we honeymooned in Maui. We had a great time re-living our younger days. I guarantee we are not waiting another 20 years to return and when we do, this condo will be our first choice.

Thank You! Don, your condo made this the best vacation we have ever had.

Great location with an incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing better than waking up to the sound of waves right outside your door. Great condo right on the beach with everything you need. Prime location within walking distance of several restaurants and a grocery store. Don was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed before and after we arrived. It was the perfect getaway!

The perfect place for R&R!

  • 5 of 5

We looked for a long time for the perfect place for our honeymoon. Once we found this place, we knew if would be perfect and it was. The condo is clean, comfortable, conveniently located and right on the water. If we wanted to walk, there were many places to go to, with a farmer's market and coffee shop the closest! I highly recommend this condo and we look forward to returning!

Perfect Oceanside getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Don was great to work with and communicated very clearly and quickly responded. The condo was perfect for our 9 day stay in Maui, close (walking distance) to grocery, coffee and several amazing food spots. Also a short walk from a park and large beach area, that was never crowded. The condo was well equipped with all kitchen items, laundry on site and the sound of the ocean at all times. We would highly recommend this rental!

Kulakane was outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The actual property was even better than described. Beautiful well kept property inside and out.

Very clean and well stocked kitchen and pantry, all you need to bring is the food you want to eat and the clothes you want to wear, everything else is there.

Excellent views of the ocean and the islands of Moloka'i & Lanai make for a perfect sunset.

The owner contacted me direct on the second day to make sure everything was OK.

I would recommend this property to all my friends and family.

Snorkeling, Scuba diving, Surfing, sight seeing, doing Lahaina, all great things to do.

We drove around the entire Island, including the Hana Highway.
