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.(Be aware that the beaches are subject to tidal erosion). 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.A fully equipped laundry is onsite so pack light.

55' HiDef TV with some premium channels and Netflix

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 Lahaina

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.

Perfect getaway! Unreal sunsets! Well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you'll need for a relaxing beach getaway! We spent 10 day soaking up the sublime views, snorkeling, sunsets, birds, lots of sea turtles, tiki torches, conch blower every night at sunset and beautiful grounds! The marine preserve at the property was as good as if not better than anything Maui has to offer and it is a quick swim or walk from the patio. We just loved our time there and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a private getaway, especially if you like to cook and make your own frozen drinks! It's not for partiers...its a quiet retreat!

The best way to describe this hidden gem is paradise. We will be returning next summer for two weeks. We spent 7 nights swimming in the ocean that is 15 steps away, snorkeling, jumping waves, watching turtles swim by, and sipping coffee on the lanai. It was the most relaxing trip we've ever had. Some mornings we didn't even want to leave because the view and our "private" beach were amazing. We found our beach to be better than most of the other well-known beaches. The condo is perfectly described on the site. The bed was beyond comfortable and I slept wonderfully. The kitchen had everything you need including condiments, spices, and oil to cook. Boogie boards, snorkels, and beach chairs were also provided. We became friends with our neighbors and ended up going hiking and out to many restaurants with them. We can't wait to book this condo again!! This time we will stay longer.

Fantastic Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

What can we say!!! John and Val's place is in a slice of heaven! We stayed 8 days at this condo for part of our Honeymoon. Walking out to the water right from the slider was exactly what we were looking for. Having the beach area right in front of the our door was perfect. The most amazing views either right from the lanai or from the couch at night listening to the waves crash on the shore. Saw a bunch of turtles that swam right by daily. The waves were pretty crazy, but still manageable. (Snorkeling gear and boogie boards and chairs were provided)

Inside the condo was a perfect setup for two. Would have liked an a/c in the living room area too (we bought a fan) but we knew going in there was only one in the bedroom. Great small kitchen set up, with plenty of appliances to use.

Great big Curved TV! Couch was a little uncomfortable after a long day of exploring, but we made it work. Parking spaces are very tight, we got a warning for barely parking on the line. But overall everything was wonderful!

We hIghly recommend this spot! Our only wish was that we lived closer to make the return trip sooner. Kimi B - Massachusetts

Amazing spot on beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay John’s place in Lahaina. The apartment is part of a larger complex (with pool and grills), but it’s the best one in a quiet corner and with a lanai right at the beach entrance. The place is well equipped with everything you need for cooking, swimming and even snorkeling gear. This part of Maui has amazing snorkel spots, and the beach at John’s place is often visited by turtles... we’ve seen so many!!

John wasn’t around but provided very clear instructions and other advice during our stay. The place has proper WiFi and awesome television which you won’t use because sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine is a much better use of your time ;)

Also, there’s a guy who blows a shell horn every day at sunset, quite silly, but adds to the holiday vibe ;D

John, many thanks for letting us stay at this beautiful place, it was definitely one of our most memorable holidays ever.

A Wonderful Treat

  • 5 of 5

Upon booking this space we received a response from the host that said "You are in for a treat". He was spot on!! When we arrived we were greeted by a very large green sea turtle right in our back yard on the beach. Amazing!! During our stay we saw many turtles. I enjoyed snorkeling and boogie boarding (included with the condo) just a few steps away from the condo. The space was well equipped with everything we needed. Huge TV and very comfy mattress. We didn't want to leave our patio, it was so quiet and relaxing. We just sat and looked out at the ocean and the beautiful sunsets. John was a great host. Made one trip to Lahaina, (only 10 min drive) and had lunch at Lahaina Pizza Company (food & Chi-Chi's were fantastic, great ocean view and very reasonably priced for front street). It was nice just to walk about and visit all of the little shops. When we first arrived in Lahaina we had lunch at Star Noodle. Fabulous food and service! We found that Safeway was the best place for groceries. (Tip: initially bought most of our groceries and alcohol at Costco - only 5 min drive from the airport) All in all we had the time of our lives and it will forever be etched in our minds. We will return some day!

Spectacular views — absolutely loved this place

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don’t due it justice. This condo hits all the marks for location, location, location!! With sweeping views of Lanai and Molokai the only time we “rushed” on Maui was to get “home” every evening to catch the most spectacular sunsets. We were literally steps from the beach to enjoy amazing snorkeling and majestic sea turtles. The condo had everything we needed, clean, relaxing and the bed was very comfortable! Can’t say enough good things about this place. We will absolutely be back. Thanks to John and Val — our stay was effortless.
