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.

Perfect Stay at Kulakane 104!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect base for us during our stay on Maui. As we explored the island, we found that we were excited to get back to our condo for peace and relaxation. We spent much of our time on the beach in front of the unit, and loved watching the turtles that were hanging out right there!

The condo is clean, comfortable, and quiet, and the view from the lanai is amazing--perfect for watching sunsets. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect--walking distance to shops and restaurants, and a quick drive to bigger beaches. The complex has a fun vibe--the nightly conch blowing ceremony was a kick and a great way to meet fellow vacationers from all over the world.

Thank you, Don, for a wonderful stay! We will definitely be back!

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo and setting if you are visiting Maui! Literally steps from the water and small private ish beach. Listen to the waves from the living room and lanai. Well kept and groomed surrounding area and small complex made hanging out here even better. BEST health food market EVER is just down the street! Farmers Market with a local coffee house next door. Highly recommend this condo and we will definitely return! Lovely owners who are easily reached and accessible.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Wow....Paradise!!!! Our limited budget helped us find this condo! We were so pleased when we arrived at Kulakane and as the week went on it got better and better! First of all, this small condo complex offers beautiful sunsets, turtles, immaculate grounds and peaceful relaxation that you don't get at the big properties. The pool was perfect right on the ocean wall with many lounge chairs....never had to worry about saving chairs. We were so impressed that most of the people staying at these condos had been coming for years and we can see why!!!! The location was perfect with the small Farmer's Market and coffee shop walking distance. Close drive to Kaanapali, Lahiana and Kapulua!! Our condo was very well stocked with everything we needed for the week. Dining on the patio with the spectacular view was a highlight each day...early morning coffee and evening drinks! Pool is small but perfect for this setting...great for cooling off while relaxing Oceanside. Everyday we would walk 50 feet along the beach wall to the beach next door where we would enjoy swimming in the ocean with the turtles. They were so much fun to watch all day long. The traditional Conch Shell ceremony each night was so fun! The condos would be so quiet all day long but at Sunset everyone would come out and have a great time!! Tony, property manager, is so great and keeps the grounds so pristine and so helpful making our visit perfect. The condo has a very comfortable bed with nice sheets. Don, the owner, was so pleasant to work with prior and during our stay. He was very concerned that we had everything we needed! Such a special place to stay!!! We will be back....Thank you Don and Jane

Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

Kulekane 104 is lovely. It has been updated and the furnishings and decor are island perfect, including Jane's original paintings! The kitchen was well equipped for our needs and the beds comfy. Sunsets, whales and turtles provided daily entertainment. We hated to leave and look forward to returning.
