About the property

This Most Beautiful Property Offers Luxury Living In Paradise.

This most sought after location in the complex is a ground floor corner unit offering privacy and just 10 paces away from one of the two almost private beaches, where you may find yourself alone. There are two huge shade trees above for when that sunburn beckons a shady place to enjoy panoramic ocean views with Lanai and Molokai in the background.

Beach chairs, towels and snorkeling gear are provided if you wish to swim with the turtles feeding at the waters edge. Please don't touch them as we would like them to return each day. Seasonal whale watching and spinner dolphins from your lanai and an ever changing ocean show of breathtaking sunsets, sunrises, rainbows and even moonbows over lanai and molokai. World class surfing and paddle boarding from your backyard.

You truly have found paradise.

If a pool is more inviting, enjoy luxuriating under the maui sun in the large pool that is heat controlled to maintain an enjoyable swim no matter the weather. Stroll through the beautiful grounds of the kuleana resort, take advantage of the on-site tennis, shuffleboard court or enjoy a game of ping-pong in the spacious open air lobby complete with library and an assortment of toys for children. A concierge is available to help book your sightseeing trip or luau.

The condominium was completely remodeled in 2014 with tile and granite surfaces , is tastefully furnished and decorated with incredible photographic art. Ceiling fans provide ambiance and comfort in the living room and bedroom. Air conditioning in the bedroom will keep the whole apartment at an even, cool temperature if the trade breezes coming down the slopes of the west maui mountains are not sufficient. All linens are new, high quality and high thread count.

55' HiDef TV with some premium channels and Netflix

About John Egan

Val and john have lived at kuleana for 13 years. We cannot imagine a more relaxing setting to enjoy a glass of wine each evening as we watch the sun set over our neighbor islands.

We are surrounded by world class dining, shopping, golf and countless activities and feel blessed to call this home.

John Egan purchased this condo in 2013

Why John Egan chose Maui

Just steps from the beach with an ever changing ocean vista.

Perfect place to watch the turtles everyday and in season ,Humpback whales breaching or maybe a pod of Spinner Dolphins passing by.

What makes this condo unique

Two beautiful shade trees providing the coolest spot on the property for those hot days.

Whales and Turtles at Kuleana's Best Location

Simply put, this place is fantastic. This was our family's first trip to Maui (with 2 kids, 10 and 8) so we did a lot of research before committing to any accommodation. We looked at many of the newer "high end" resorts and were impressed with the layouts and amenities, but ultimately settled on this little bit of paradise for our trip. Within the complex (and anywhere else I would argue!), John and Val's suite is simply unbeatable for its location. It is the end unit on the ground floor, literally 30ft from the beach with stunning views of the sunset and the best lanai anywhere! With two kids, it is cozy, but absolutely doable. The back bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and there is a pull out couch in the front room next to the kitchen. We loved the ocean sound (and the morning view) so much that we made the kids sleep in the back room (which they didn't mind) and we took the pull out! It also feels very private, especially at night, so much so that we left the door and blinds open with only the screen door closed. When we arrived, the condo was clean and just as you see it in the photos. The complex grounds are immaculate and the pool is a great alternative to the beach. With young kids, having a decent size pool is a great option to the beach when it gets too rough. If BBQ'ing is your thing, like it is ours, the 4 communal BBQ's on the property are the best located anywhere. If you like to socialize with the other owners/visitors, be at the BBQ between 530pm and 7pm with your item of choice and a large glass of wine. Not only will you meet lots of people, but your view of the surrounding ocean, beach and sunset will make for the best BBQ experience ever. From this location it is an easy drive North to Kapalua or South to Kaanapali and Lahaina. Dealing with John directly also made the experience much more relaxing. Our flight to Maui arrived very late and our flight out was also very late. John was accommodating and very easy to talk to when making those arrangements. I would easily recommend this location for any family with young children (no more than 2 though... it would get just a little too cozy!). There were other families within the complex, but there was not the business and crowds that you would experience in a larger resort. If you are looking for a place to relax with the kids, have easy access to the beach or the pool, and prefer a quieter, more laid back holiday experience, then this is the place for you!

Incredible location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little one bedroom condominium. It was perfect for the two of us. It was very clean, had lovely upgrades to the interior and had all of the amenities we needed for the week. The location, being right on the ocean and steps away from the beach was absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed being in a relatively smaller complex with apparently a lot of owner residents who were very friendly.

One of our favorite activities during the week was sitting on the patio watching the surfers and SUP surfers with the sun setting in the background. We would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return ourselves! Thank you John and Valori.

This! We traveled much of Maui, and I have to say this was my favorite spot. The beauty of the grounds, the ocean, and the very clean and tasteful condo instantly sets you into ease. We cannot wait to go back. This is now our home away from home, our heavenly spot on earth.

Stayed for a week. John was so easy to work with. His and Val's property is truly the best unit in the complex. Turtles were amazing came right up on shore. Nice little beach area, but view and trees that line this property are such a plus. Trees shade patio area so you can sit out and not have that direct sun in late afternoon and its an end unit. Pool was great and refreshing, landscape beautiful. Snorkling right out front and close to shops and restraunts. Unit furnished nicely and bed very comfortable. Air condition worked well and was needed. Also really quite at night which was great for us after full days. would stay here again for sure. Thanks again for such a wonderful stay in Maui.

Incredible little hamlet right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a week in the sweetest condo on the beach. We were so grateful to our hosts for all the amenities and communication. We were shocked and in awe of the sea turtles and just how quiet and private the beach is. The condo was perfect. My daughter wasn't excited about the foldout couch but I had the king bed and loved it. It was easy to find. The place was very clean. The pool was perfect for lap swimming which I did every day. I hope to make it our go to when we return to Maui.
