Aloha! Our Hale is your Hale. Please enjoy your stay with us. Our quiet and private condominium has one of the most spectacular unobstructed views on the island. This vacation home is directly on the oceanfront and is Eco-friendly. You can't stay closer to the ocean anywhere else on the island.
This condominium has been newly remodeled and redecorated with authentic tropical-style Hawaiian furniture and art. The art throughout the home is all original from local artists. Crown molding and custom color paint are are just a few of the textures you can expect. The electronics are all new and so is the furniture which is very comfortable. A very large 46' Hi-Definition TV has been added as well as CD/DVD stereo system. You can hear and see the ocean from all living areas and the lanai. When you are in the bedroom you can hear the ocean as you fall asleep on your new (2014) King size pillow top mattress to the gentle rhythm of the waves rolling into shore. If you choose you can also watch TV on a smaller bedroom television mounted on the wall. Often you can expect the natural cool tropical breezes and fragrance to drift through this unit soothing you into even deeper sleep.
We also have a private snorkeling area located here at the resort as well as one of the largest pools. We call the ocean bay in front of our unit 'Turtle Bay' because of the abundance of turtles that call it home.
The gardens throughout this nature friendly complex are spacious for walks and the most beautiful and well maintained as well. And if you are looking forward to dining at an exclusive one of a kind setting with the most incredible views and atmosphere, then we suggest dining on your own 'private' romantic lanai. The tiki torches are lit up as the sun goes down and there is no better place to be than in your own private paradise. 4 BBQs are available to the guest to cook fresh island fish, or whatever you prefer. During whale season this home has the advantages of optimal views of the whales as well as the islands of Molokai and Lanai.
If you enjoy local tropical produce and like to walk, the farmers market is not far away and is across from a beach park in this pedestrian friendly location.
This vacation home will please the most discerning individuals and is of the highest quality, detail, and is offered at the absolute best value to be found. We believe you will not find a luxurious unit like this one that starts for less than $400 a night, and still will not have this view. We are absolutely sure you will be happy with your decision to vacation here. Please be our guest, come feel the Aloha!
I love the outdoors and nothing seems closer to nature than being here in the front row for it all. Life is good!
Jerry Kelly purchased this condo in 1999
I have never seen or experienced a view or a feeling of Aloha and relaxation like this. It feels like god touched the earth right here! When people visit this unit that actually live here in Hawaii, even they say they have never seen a place that had this view or privacy!!
This property can be completely private if you should choose. It has outdoor private space as well as indoor private space with the great outdoors feeling.
Aloha!What a lovely place! The beauty and vitality of Maui is right outside. We snorkeled daily and swam with several sea turtles right out back! Look for them at dusk. I would add to the suggestions previously noted: health food and veggie goodies are the first market on your left toward Lahaina (farmers Market). Definitely enjoy fresh ahi on the grill. Set out for Hana or Haleakala early to have more time. Mama’s Fish House, although very expensive, has always provided world-class dinning. Slack key music on Tuesdays at the Ritz Carlton though pricey, is a genuine Hawaiian musical goodtime. Enjoy and hope to return to write again, one of the nicest places we’ve stayed.Don & DianeTacoma WA.P.S. Lovely Art on the walls, very beautiful!!
The view from the lanai of this condo is perfect for turtle, surfer, and wave watching. Swimming off the beach was a bit difficult, though we were here in December and surf can be rough this time of year. Location of Kuleana is convenient, easy access to highway south to Lahaina or north. Good coffee place about 15 minute walk. Suggest getting groceries at the Times supermarket on Lower Honoapaiili Rd. rather than the Safeway in Lahaina. We went to Upcountry on two days, good shopping in Makawao, had a fabulous dinner at the Halemaile General Store (it's a restaurant and not a store). Condo unit itself is dated and needs some maintenance, it was adequate. Kuleana Resort is very nice, great pool and grounds, concierge service, outdoor gas grills overlooking ocean were in use every evening. Good swimming beach is at Kapalua Beach in Napili, we liked it because it has a grassy area to set chairs and enjoy the beach, showers and restrooms there too.
The condo is definitely outdated and could use a little facelift. Lighting is a bit dim. Bathroom updated and bed comfortable, cable TV and wireless internet worked great. everything worked fine for us and the location is really why you want to stay here. Lanai overlooks the ocean with views of Lanai and Molokai. Feels very private. And was quiet. The heated pool is great and the fact they provide all the beach gear for you is a definite plus. If you want luxury this is not your place but if you want a comfortable relaxing condo and great views this is it! You can snorkel right outside with the turtles, great experience!
Great condo, location, pool, and beachfront property, along with fantastic view. Condo had everything a person might need including snorkel gear, beach chairs, boogie boards etc. Everything in good shape except A/C didn't work (thank goodness it wasn't any warmer). Would definitely recommend and would stay there again!
The condo complex was nice...Gounds were well kept and pool was nice. Location was excellent with great view of ocean. This condo unit needed updating badly. Fresh paint is needed. Kitchen cabinets has paint worn off and dirty looking. The major complaint was that the sliding door to the lanai does not work ninety five percent of the time. It totally jams and you cannot get out. I saw that someone else had said that in a review and I called and talked to the owner and he said it worked fine! WRONG! When we got there and couldn't make it work, I called the owner, Jerry and told him, he told me we must be weak because it works and he had checked it . My husband is six feet tall and is very strong! It made horrible noise if he tried to force it open.. I was never able to get it open! Definite fire hazard to getting out!
This was the perfect spot for my wife, me and our 2 yr old son. Turtles everywhere right out front. At one point we had 8 within view. Our little man loved playing in gentle waves, swimming in the ocean, and the pool. The ocean access is easy, calm and inviting.
The view is stunning. I doubt there is a better one in this complex or anywhere along this stretch of Maui. The complex is quiet and just a short drive from Napili or Lahaina. So nice that the condo includes things like masks, fins, snorkels, tennis request, pingpong paddles, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, coolers. It's very well thought out.
Great banana bread at the farmers market
This was out first time to visit Maui and we had the most amazing experience staying at the Kuleana Resort. We were in town for a wedding at the Ritz Carlton and spent a great deal of time there as well so we had the opportunity to compare the experiences. People that stayed at the Ritz came to our condo to hang out. It was so well appointed! From beach chairs to snorkel gear to bug spray to a well stocked kitchen to CD guides for the road to Hana, Jerry has thought of everything. We saved so much money compared to our friends at the Ritz because they were charged for every little thing. Our little condo provided it all.
The view is just spectacular. Waking up to the ocean crashing right outside your door is not something you should miss in Maui. Our Lanai was private and the sunsets were beautiful. Swimming alongside the visiting turtles daily was the most wonderful treat. I felt so priveleged to be staying somewhere that had that kind of access to these huge magnificent creatures.
The location was perfect for us. We were in spitting distance of Kaanapali Beach/Whaler's Village, Napili, Slaughterhouse Beach (which was by FAR our favorite) and the amazing snorkeling at Honolua Bay.
The staff was helpful even though they are not directly affiliated with our condo. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The bed was comfortable. The parking lot and grounds felt safe and you felt a wonderful sense of community. We visited the Sheraton while we were there and people just looked crammed into a feeding trough. We had lots of room and the beach we never crowded.
We LOVED it and definitely plan to stay there again.
Aloha and Welcome to the Kuleana Resort. You will not find a better view or be closer to the ocean than this unit. You can expect complete privacy, quiet and clean accommodations. A brand new pillow top King size bed in the bedroom and a new queen size sofa sleeper in the living area also brand new with a great mattress. We have a wonderful private beach here at the resort sometimes even two. We also boast the largest pool and heated here on the west end of Maui. The grounds are EMACULANTLY maintained along with the barbeques to be topped off by tiki torches. If tennis is your game or shuffle board, ping pong we have it! If quiet time or reading is your expectation we have an extensive library and lounge in the lobby area. Whatever your expectations are we are confident they will not only be met but exceeded. Mahalo for choosing the Kuleana Resort.
