Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

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!

About Jerry Kelly

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

Why Jerry Kelly chose Maui

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!!

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!!

This condo unit was very dated. Location was good.

  • 2 of 5

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!

Better than in the pictures

  • 5 of 5

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

The Perfect Maui Experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

The location is ideal with a breathtaking view.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time staying in this unit, the location and view was ideal. We really enjoyed having beach access from the condo. No need to pack up the car and drive to a beach, hassle with parking. Swimming with the turtles was such a special experience, they are so awesome! The master king size bed was very comfortable, always had a good nights sleep. The sheets on this bed were not a good fit and we were always pulling and tucking to help with the poor fit.

The condo itself is very comfortable but as others have mentioned, it is a bit tired and could use a bit a touching up. There was no parking pass when we got to the condo but security provided us with a temporary pass. The umbrella on the outside deck does not work and two of the boogie boards were broken. A patio chair and indoor chair are broken but could be an easy fix. We would come back to this unit but may check out how this one compares to some of the other units in Kuleana.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful time at the property. The unit is at an amazing location and was great for relaxing close to the ocean. Jerry was very responsive to questions we had so that was appreciated. The only downside was a problem with ants.

Very mixed review

  • 3 of 5

While we enjoyed the location and view, the unit itself was in need of updating and repair. This is an old building and most units have been updated. Not this one. It shows in worn cabinets, fixtures and appliances. When we arrived and saw the condition, I was concerned about the air conditioner. Thankfully it worked.

Within the first few days of our two week stay we reported the bad hose. (Message in bathroom asks you to water the plants each day--Jerry’s response, “Thanks for letting me know.”) Then the broken chair on the patio (Jerry did reply to that, but just said he had a bolt “on order and did not respond to me asking WHEN it would be fixed) and the bad sliding door (which has been noted in other reviews; we decided to just leave the door open 24/7). Nothing, during our 14 day stay, ever got fixed. Since I passed by the office multiple times a day in order to reach the condo I finally asked the woman working if there was a way to get maintenance out and she just gave me a sad look and said, “you have to talk to the owner.” When I told her our unit she indicated that she gets several complaints.

We book these condos based on their proximity to the ocean, so that was what we were determined to enjoy. The unit is well located within the Kuleana and it was nice to enjoy the small beach next door. We de-clutterd the balcony and brought out one of the indoor chairs to sit on outside. I’d definitely rent at the Kuleana again, just another unit-one that is managed by the on-site staff.

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.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, shuffleboard
