Kuleana Oceanfront Maui Condo Near Kahana!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Kuleana is one of the best-kept secrets on the West side of Maui. Once you go, you get it! The Kuleana is spread over 7 tropical acres of well kept, manicured grounds shaded with Plumeria Trees. Fragrant flowers abound, including Wild Ginger, Hibiscus, and Bird of Paradise. And yes, we have bananas!

This second floor, one bedroom, one bath condominium is just STEPS away from the ocean, with a seasonal beach directly in front of the unit. Sip Kona Coffee in the morning while listening to the waves rolling on to the shore. In the winter, you can watch the whales swimming in the channel. Enjoy a glass wine as you watch some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world right from your lanai.

If you love the beach, we are just minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world: the beaches at Kaanapali, Flemings Beach, and Honoloa Bay. Depending on the tides, there is usually a nice, sandy beach right in front of the unit. If you're more of a 'pool person,' a beautiful hand-tiled swimming pool is right outside your front door (and it's heated). We have snorkels and fins in the unit for you to use on the reefs off the Kuleana, where you can see beautiful tropical fish and huge Honu (sea turtles). Our tennis court sees lots of action, so be sure to bring your racket!

We are ten minutes away from the shopping and restaurants of Lahaina to the south, and ten minutes away from the world-famous golf courses and restaurants of the Kapalua Resort to the north.

Enjoy the understated elegance of our 'Hawaii Home.' We have remodeled our unit and decorated it to bring the outside in. The floors are tiled and the walls reflect the color of the beautiful sandy beaches. You'll find tumbled coral tile in the bathroom and kitchen, along with new stainless steel appliances. We are constantly striving to improve our beautiful place, so please let us know what we can do to make it better!

The Kuleana means 'concern' in Hawaiian -- and our concern is to make sure you enjoy our beautiful place and come back again!

About Alex Langenberg

We are a Navy family living in San Diego and have been visiting Maui for nearly 20 years. The Kuleana is a very special place for us, and many of our friends have wound up getting married here. We are very happy to share our beautiful Hawaii Home with you and we hope to see you again!

Alex Langenberg purchased this condo in 2001

Why Alex Langenberg chose Maui

The Kuleana is a quiet resort that is spread out over beautiful tropical grounds. You won't feel crowded here. The location is just perfect, as we're away from some of the busy traffic and 'touristy' spots, but close enough to everything that you'll never be bored! Our unit is at the end of the '400 building,' which is the most popular due to its location between the ocean and the pool. It is also the furthest from the street, so you are insulated from the noise of traffic. There is only one unit below ours and one unit to the left. There is no one above you, which is very nice......

If You Want Your View To Look Like A Hawaiian Postcard, Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

You really must be here in the flesh to believe this place. I'm certain Kuleana is, in reality, the Biblical Garden of Eden. My husband and I have turned the internet upside down, left and right, looking for a place on ANY Hawaiian island that can match this one building in the complex for the view, value, private beach, closeness to the water and we other resort, right next door! That's it! On any Hawaiian island! As we sat on the lanai one morning, we overheard a man directly below us say, "Ya, we have a great view, but this unit above us is really where I would have liked to stay". We sure felt smug, as we silently agreed with him. Also, I have to laugh every time I see ads for the "turtle town" snorkeling excursions that people pay big bucks for. THIS is turtle town. No need to hop on a boat. You will practically collide with turtles on this beach, in and out of the water, and these are healthy, big ones. As a matter of fact, as my husband laid sunning himself on the left side pocket beach, one hauled himself out of the sea and plopped down not twelve feet from him. If you are looking for a natural refuge from the canned vacation that I try to avoid, look no further. This particular unit is one of only a handful in the complex that meet our very fussy criteria. The owners were easy to work with, and we trusted them because they've been renting here for a long time. Oh ya, there's even a purified water dispenser in the lobby for refilling your bottles. No more lugging heavy, expensive water back from the store.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We've always said, "Once you go, you get it" Being on the second floor, you're able to have more privacy on the lanai and better views of the ocean and all it offers. This is truly a Hawaiian paradise and we are so pleased that you loved it as much as we do.

Great property, beach and pool.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and quiet. The private beach access was great for snorkeling. Sea turtles often frequented the beach. The location is convenient to everything. Would definitely come back.

Spacious condo, quiet area, gorgeous view, and SEA TURTLES!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a little piece of heaven! Visited at the end of whale season and could still see pods out in the water breaching and blowing up water! Sea turtles loved to hang out just off the shore by the private little beach and we even had an old one come up to rest when we first arrived. Needless to say, the location was perfect for us. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Lahaina but close enough to take a cab if you attend a Luau or had too much ti drink on your dinner cruise. The condo was well equipped with kitchen and beach supplies! Alex was available to answer questions if we needed it and check in was simple and easy. Would definitely stay here again!

Incredible Sunsets! We wanted to stay longer

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for two nights with three of my girlfriends and we had an incredible time! The unit was amazing, the view was spectacular, and we wished we could have stayed for longer. The pictures were a great representation of the unit, and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. We ended up going to the Lahaina Fish Market and got fresh fish everyday for dinner and were able to watch the sunset from the unit.

The elephant in the room:

We are all in our early 20's, and the Kuleana Oceanfront Condos residents were primarily elderly. We LOVED this about the property! Our goal for our trip was a relaxing getaway, and that is exactly what we got. Quiet hours started at 10pm which was perfect for us, and the whole complex was in great condition.


If you are looking for an affordable relaxing getaway in a unit that has a fully stocked kitchen and is footsteps from the beach, this is your place. If you are looking for a party and plan on going out every night, you will want to stay closer to Lahaina and stay at one of the resorts.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! A caveat about the age group of visitors at the Kuleana: It all depends on the time of year. In the winter, most people are escaping the cold of the mainland. You'll find much younger people and families with children during spring break and the summertime. It certainly isn't a 55+ community all year round :-) Thank you again for staying and hope you have the chance to return!!!!
