About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 maximum)

This Maui oceanfront vacation condo is just 50 feet from the ocean with a 180-degree unobstructed ocean view featuring neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai. The condo includes:

- two enclosed private bedrooms,

- two full bathrooms (granite shower in each),

- full kitchen,

- dining area,

- living room with 47' flat TV, Blue-Ray/DVD player and stereo with MP3 and Bluetooth connection,

- private lanai, and

- a loft office/reading area with wireless printer/scanner.

The condominium is located on top (3rd) floor of a small, low-rise complex just north of Ka'anapali. The complex and surrounding neighborhood are uncrowded, yet all west Maui attractions and activities are very close. Lahaina, Ka'anapali, Kahana, Napili and Kapalua are all within 5 miles.


Open, bright and private, this updated two-story townhouse condo features 2 enclosed bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen and a separate loft office/reading area with computer and printer/scanner. Enjoy one upstairs bedroom with California King size bed, and one downstairs bedroom with Queen size bed. Both bedrooms are enclosed (unlike some condos that count an open loft as a second bedroom.) Great for two couples or singles traveling together. Fully-equipped granite kitchen includes coffee maker, dishwasher, Jenn-Air radiant cooktop, conventional/convection and microwave ovens, rice cooker, refrigerator with ice maker, oversized disposal, toaster, and blender. New stainless refrigerator, dishwasher, convection oven and new carpet throughout. 50' wall-mounted flat-screen TV in the living room, Blu-Ray/DVD player and stereo with input for mp3 player/iPod/smartphone. 30' flat-screen TV with DVD player in upstairs bedroom. Digital cable service and broadband wi-fi throughout the complex at no extra charge.

Two identical bathrooms feature walk-in granite showers with height-adjustable shower head/hand shower, granite counters, and vessel sinks.

The condo has a loft office/reading area (separate from the private enclosed bedrooms) with wireless laser printer/scanner available free for guest use, good lighting and comfortable seating. If you bring your laptop (or wi-fi enabled device such as smartphone or tablet) you can use the free wireless broadband Internet access available throughout the complex (even by the pool). Useful for getting some work done while on vacation (if you must), or searching and booking activities on Maui.

Ceiling fans in all rooms and refreshing island Trade winds keep you naturally cool. Dine on your private lanai (balcony) with a spectacular 2-island ocean view. Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean.

Learn to blow a conch shell in the traditional Hawaiian ceremony to bless the next day's weather while viewing the sunset every evening. Relax by the pool or swim in the ocean. See rainbows, sea turtles and dolphins from your private lanai. Humpback whales are often seen from December to April (and sometimes in November and May). Sea turtles come within feet of the shore every day to feed, and are wonderful to watch while snorkeling.

ON-SITE Manager. No lockbox, and no need drive to an offsite location to pick up keys when you arrive. Pick up your keys from our friendly, helpful rental manager, just 150 feet from your front door. She will assist you with any needs that arise during your stay (or in the unlikely event of a problem), and can provide a wealth of knowledge regarding island attractions, restaurants and activities. She maintains a stock of light bulbs, kitchen appliances, etc. for immediate replacement in the unlikely event of problems. (Note: Many condos in the area and even in our complex are managed by off-site companies. Be sure to understand the difference.)

This Maui condo can accommodate a maximum of 4 guests in 2 beds. There are no other sleeping accommodations.

January and February...............full month only

March...................................14 nights

December 16-31...................14 nights

About David

We're a northern California family who have been vacationing in Maui since the mid-1980s. After searching many west Maui condo complexes, we purchased our unit at the Kulakane in 2007, and travel there several times each year to enjoy it and keep the condo in top shape.

David purchased this condo in 2007

Why David chose Maui

We especially love upper west Maui, where the views of the neighbor islands of Molokai and Lanai are unmatched elsewhere on Maui - or any other tropical location we have been to. We chose Kulakane 302 specifically for the spectacular, unobstructed 180-degree two-island ocean view, unique architecture, friendly vibe, easy beach/ocean access and oceanside pool. (We were surprised to find that many neighboring properties have their pool located on parking lot side of the building, with no ocean view.) The Kulakane is a small, low-rise (3 stories) complex in the quiet Honokowai district, between Kaanapali and Kapalua. The historic village of Lahaina, once a whaling port, is probably the most popular tourist and shopping attraction on Maui. It is a short 10-minute drive from our condo, which allows us to enjoy the town when we choose, and enjoy the quiet and privacy of Honokowai when we prefer to avoid the crowds. Two of Maui's premier golf locations, Kapalua and Kaanapali, are also within an easy 10-minute drive. Surf breaks, ranging from beginner level (Puamana, Laniupoko) to advanced (Honolua Bay) are also within a 15-minute drive. The Honokowai Farmer's Market is held on MWF mornings, just 200 yards from our condo. Snorkel equipment, surfboard, mopeds, and video and video rentals are all available within 1/2 mile of the condo.

What makes this condo unique

Kulakane 302 directly faces the ocean, and is just 50 feet from the water's edge. From your private lanai (balcony), you will see only the ocean, the neighbor islands, the beach and some of the local sea life (such as sea turtles, whales and dolphins). The lanai is really an extension of the living room - it has an overhanging roof, side walls and is carpeted, so you can comfortably enjoy it in any weather, including tropical sprinkles. We sometimes sit on the lanai, surfing the web on our laptops (via the free Wi-Fi network) and watching the surf in front of us.

There is a working office with a wireless laser printer/scanner provided for your use. Stay in email contact with your friends back home, make your arrangements for Maui activities, take care of a few business tasks, print your boarding passes.

Good oceanfront location, within walking distance to restaurants and shops

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unit! The booking and payment process were easy and straightforward. When we checked in on day one, we found the on site rental staff helpful. The unit has a beautiful view of the ocean---one of the best we've had on this part of the island. We spent a lot of time on the lanai watching turtles and the occasional whale. Snorkeling is decent right outside the condo, which was also nice. We cooked many of our meals in the condo, and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. We also found games, books, and beach stuff (chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc) throughout the unit, which was a pleasant surprise. My husband and I were traveling with another couple, and found there was adequate privacy with bedrooms on different floors. The only concern we had was the noise in the second bedroom on the main level of the condo. The Kulakane is located pretty close to the road, and we sometimes found it hard to sleep due to road noise (ear plugs would probably resolve the issue). Our friends were initially nervous about lack of AC, but it was a non issue given all the windows and fans throughout the unit. Overall, I think this condo offers great value and would recommend it.

Wonderful condo! Perfect for us and our two year old!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. Unbeatable views- which is pretty much the number one detail we look at when we are searching for a place to stay. The condo was stocked with everything we could have needed, including beach toys for our little one, boogie boards, chairs, coolers, etc! The furniture was comfortable, everything nice and updated. The staff at the Kulakane were amazing, and super helpful with recommendations! No washer and dryer in the unit- but the laundry room was great, super fast machines, and had a lending library as well!

Thanks again!

Beautiful little place with an incredible view

  • 5 of 5

The property is immaculate and cozy. The gated pool is small, but great for kids or a sunbather that just wants a cool-off dip (not to mention that the beach is right in front of it.) A nice area has several gas grills for use and there's a recycling area just to the right of the office. It's no smoking, but there's a smoking tent on the property that's quite inviting if you're a smoker. Friday pupus by the pool (prepare your own and bring them down) offer a chance to meet residents and vacationers alike and learn to blow the conch shell at the setting sun.

The unit is well furnished with private bedrooms, making it a nice choice for two couples or a family with older children, as one bedroom is upstairs and there isn't a tub in either bathroom. The living room has comfortable furniture and a flat screen TV, though who comes to Maui to watch television? We enjoyed the stereo hooked up to our phones while we looked at the stars or ocean from the lanai. The kitchen has anything you could want for cooking tools -- my son is a chef so he's rather picky... first trip where we didn't have to buy something. Be sure to check the pantry that is right to the left of the kitchen and don't mistake it for a wall. That's where we found coffee filters. Stop at the unit first, because there were a lot of ingredients we would have bought that were already available. We left behind Cajun seasoning and sesame oil and each person that cooks their likely leaves something the next tenant can use. The cooktop is a little tricky as the knobs don't necessarily turn the way you expect them to for low to high, so look at the eye before setting your pot down. The condo also offered some little extras such as beach supplies (chairs, umbrella, a cooler, boogie boards, some snorkel gear) and I was happy to find cleaning supplies as well! The lanai offers a stunning view of the ocean, frolicking sea turtles, and brilliant stars.

The owner is super awesome to work with, especially since a hiccup resulted in my need to change the dates of our booking. He was nothing but accommodating and helpful.

The location is great for exploring many of Maui's treasures, though a bit of a haul from Haleakala Crater or Hana Highway, but perfect for trips to Lahaina and the harbor that many water excursions depart from. It's walking distance to several shops, restaurants, and a farmer's market that's every Mon/Wed/Friday 8-11. I would choose this property again.

Our month in Maui!

  • 5 of 5


I have never spent a month anywhere and recently retired we decide that we would do what we always dreamed of; spend a month in a place we have always loved! Well, it was a dream come true every day. 81-82 degrees with a warm breeze. Each day we awoke to the sea right out our balcony. Watching the sea turtles and whales never gets tired and they came by every day! The location is great, you can walk everywhere or drive which we did much to my surprise when we rented a car for the month. Sometimes we would just drive to a place we wanted to walk. Every night a group of owners and renters would gather at sunset to blow the conch for fair worked! But, I never did perfect it myself. It was just my wife and I but having the 2nd bathroom was a big plus. The manager and her husband were delightful and it you needed anything they were there to help.
