About the property

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

Aloha! My Hale is your Hale. Please enjoy your stay with here at the Kuleana Resort. This condominium has one of the most spectacular unobstructed views on the island. This vacation home is directly on the oceanfront. 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 unit is furnished very comfortably. 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 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 Margie Chiechi

I love the outdoors and nothing seems closer to nature than being here in the front row for it all. Life is good!

Margie Chiechi purchased this condo in 1999

Why Margie Chiechi 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!!

What makes this condo unique

Walk right out your door and onto the sand or into the ocean. direct ocean front unobstructed location second to none!

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!!

Top drawer for quiet vacationers

  • 4 of 5

Love the grounds and the pool and the ever changing beaches with the constant turtle parade. The negatives are small but depends on the visitor. We were near the lobby and the foot rinse hose so early morning conversations are virtually in our bedroom. Unit needs painting.

Whale watching from your lanai

  • 5 of 5

The condo is right on the water so it's very relaxing and beautiful. We watched whales everyday from the lanai. One day there were even dolphins playing. The condo is on the small side but perfect for a couple. It had everything you could possibly need.

Kuleana Property ID 63947

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in a number of different condo properties in the Honokowai / Kahana area over the years. Kuleana is a well managed property - the grounds are beautiful. We stayed in a one bedroom ocean front unit. Nice view and very little road noise. The unit is nicely appointed. We noted by email to the owner a few small issues that need to be addressed (light bulbs, coffee maker repairs and slider door maintenance needed) and we're confident these will be taken care of before the next visitor. But all in all, it was nice and we had a great time.

Ocean view is perfect

  • 3 of 5

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.

Amazing Location!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Pretty Darn Good

  • 4 of 5

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!

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
