About Mary Browning

We have always had a soft spot for ocean waves and sunsets and The Kulakane is absolutely perfect for that as well as for views of Molokai and Lanai. We want to share with you this little slice of paradise that we have fallen in love with. We know you'll feel like we do: there's no place better to fall asleep at night, and the days go by much too quickly.

Mary Browning purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mary Browning chose Maui

The closeness to the ocean is amazing. When you step in the unit, the ocean is right there in front of you -- not sideways from your lanai, but directly in front of you. The second story location is the perfect elevation for whale watching, and the entire property is lovingly-cared-for by long-time owners and staff. Guests feel welcomed and appreciated here, and we knew that was what we, and you, would want. When we found The Kulakane, we stopped looking, because we knew we'd found paradise.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing proximity to the ocean: the ocean waves are just a short hop across the lawn. The honu bob right at wave's edge, and the snorkeling is awesome. To be able to step right into the ocean and paddle away into the waves is incredible. And in whale-watching season, the views of the humpback whales are simply astounding.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent 5 nights in Mary's condo. It was absolutely amazing, right on the beach, second story, so you don't have to worry about people walking past your condo and looking in (we've had that problem before) it was super clean and it was plenty of space. In fact, if you are traveling with kids, know that there is a very large walk in closet in the master bedroom that would easily fit a pack and play. Overall, we loved our stay, and it was great working with Mary!

Kulakane Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It's always a relaxing time at the Kulakane. I recently enjoyed my 3rd stay at the Kulakane in the last 6 years. Our condo was welcoming and comfortable and we had so much fun watching the whales and sunsets from our lanai while enjoying a meal, snack or beverage.

The Kaulakane is in a great location between Ka'anaplai and Kapula with beautiful beaches like Kapalua and DT Fleming close by. If you like a leisure hike, the coastal beach trail near Kapalua is fantastic. For shopping and eating, Lahaina's Front Street and the Whalers Village at Ka'anapali are conveniently located. You can walk to the Farmer's Market, Honokowai Beach Park and the Times Grocery Store.

We've never been disappointed with any of the activities we've done in Maui. The whale watching tours by Teralani, Ultimate Whale Watch and Trilogy have all been fantastic. The Zipline in the upcountry on the way to Haleakala is fantastic. Make sure you go to the top! You can't get any better than the food and Mai-tais at Mama's Fish House and shopping in nearby Paia on your way to or from Hana.

I can't wait to go back and will definite stay at the Kulakane again. Mary, the owner of this condo was delightful. She was prompt in all responses and correspondence. I'm sure she got a little tired of my emails, but she was always pleasant and helpful. The Kulakane and Mary's condo are the best value in West Maui!

Great Beachfront Condo

  • 4 of 5

Very glad we chose to stay at the Kulakane. The condo was clean and comfortable. Spent a lot of time watching the waves and sunset from the lanai. The location is excellent. Close to great beaches, within walking distance of farmers' market and fish market. Loved the fish market. Excellent fish tacos and ahi poke. Also picked up some fresh wahoo that we grilled back at the condo. Mary was super responsive to any questions we had. We really appreciated the boogie boards and beach chairs. The only downside was the street noise at night. It helped a little to close the windows in the bedroom. However, because the condo does not have AC, that may not be a good option in the warmer months. That's our only complaint. Otherwise, everything was great and would probably come back again!

Fabulous relaxing Maui vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time at this wonderful condo. The view was outstanding and the building has such a wonderful community. We enjoyed watching the turtles everyday. The beach gave us great access to the ocean where we swam every single day. We'd come back in a heartbeat. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the apartment. As most other reviews can testify the apartment has a suberb location, and all appliances are modern. Cleaning was spotless. Owner lets you borrow snorkeling gear and some other beach items. Everything is advertised, including the sea turtles :) Given the opportunity, I would definitly come back.

As others have mentioned the bedroom is in the back, and if you have the windows open (which you normallly want to have, since there is no A/C), you will hear street noise. Keep this in mind if you are sensitive to noises.

Enjoyable stay!

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I am giving the Kulakane 4 stars is because I can't give a 4.75 rating! The only downside to the condo is the lack of AC. Although the ceiling fans were plentiful, it just wasn't enough to ward off the July heat. Regardless, the condo was lovely, the view amazing, and the turtles... well they were memorable to say the least. It was so nice to have snorkel gear, beach chairs, towels, etc to make things easy. The sound of the surf at night made up for the humid days. Great location, easy to find, easy access to the main highway. I am already planning my next visit. Owner a gem to deal with... quick to respond and trusting. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: The summer days can definitely be hot on Maui - we've found the best strategy is getting out in on the island and sightseeing, snorkeling, hiking, shopping and dining... then come back and celebrate the sunset with a glass of chilled wine on the pool deck. The Kulakane has debated the addition of AC at the building, and decided to preserve the peace and quiet and open breezes that come from the ocean. It's a balance for sure: indoor climate vs keeping the sound of the ocean and the breeze from the sea. But we are so glad you had a great stay :)

Fantastic Stay at Kulakane 202

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at the Kulakane 202 was nothing short of exceptional. The condo struck a great balance between "old Hawaii" charm and all the modern amenities necessary for a great stay. Such a breath of fresh air relative to the huge condo complexes nearby. Amazing view, and comfortable, authentic atmosphere. You got the feeling that people return here year after year... I know we'll be back!

An ocean-lovers dream location with everything to choose from: whale-watching, sailing, swimming, sun-bathing, snorkeling, diving, or simply admiring the many honu bobbing in the waves along the beach.
