The Kuleana Resort
Enjoy the amazing panoramic ocean view from this beautifully appointed condo. Our unit was completely remodeled! Tasteful decor and accents can be found throughout the entire unit. Much thought and love went into the remodeling as it is not just a vacation rental, it is also our second home. This is not the typical vacation rental condo.

This beautiful 1 bedroom and 1 bath unit is best suited for 2 people! There is a King size bed in the bedroom. A new mattress was purchased in June 2018. The Lady Americana Camelot mattress has individually wrapped coils and Gel Memory Foam. This 485 square foot unit can sleep up to a maximum of 4 people since it has a Queen size sofa bed in the living room; however, please be aware that it may be too tight for 3-4 people (when the sofa bed is pulled out there is not much room to walk around in the living room area).
There is a wall-mounted air conditioner in the bedroom (only). Not all other units in The Kuleana complex have air conditioners.
Central air conditioning is NOT permitted in The Kuleana complex. Air conditioners are only allowed in the bedroom.
In addition, there are 2 ceiling fans in the unit (1 in the living room & 1 in the bedroom).
There is also a Vornado portable fan in case it is needed.
The bathroom contains a beautiful walk-in shower. There is no bathtub in the unit. Please note that the vanity and sink in the bathroom is high (vanity is 36" high plus the marble vessel sink on top is another 5" high) making it difficult for small children to reach.
Linens & Towels:
All linens, bath towels and beach towels are provided for your use during your stay.
Washer & Dryer:
The unit is equipped with a stacked clothes washer and dryer. Not all units in the complex have them. In addition, there are 2 laundry rooms nearby on the property.
Our unit is located on the 3rd (top floor) so there is no foot traffic to disrupt your privacy and experience. The Kuleana is not a high rise condominium complex. There are no elevators on the property. There are 3 flights (7 steps per flight) to reach our unit. There is no one above us and only 1 unit next to us separated by a block wall for privacy.
It's all about the view! A large sliding glass door in the living room leads to the lanai (balcony). Take in the views of our neighboring islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i while dining on our private lanai. There is a bar height table and 4 bar stools on the lanai for your dining. Maui living is all about the outdoors. The sunsets from our lanai are spectacular! You may find it difficult to leave.
The Kuleana Complex:
The Kuleana complex consists of 7 low rise buildings (no higher than 3 floors). The lush tropical grounds are beautifully maintained. Each unit on the property is individually owned. The Kuleana complex is best suited for adults as it is generally quiet and geared for relaxation.
The Kuleana Complex Location:
The Kuleana complex is located in West Maui and has a Lahaina zip code (although it is not directly located in Old Lahaina Town). The complex boasts a truly remarkable oceanfront location. It offers more seclusion and privacy versus a resort hotel, but yet is close enough to have all the perks of resort amenities just minutes away.
The Kuleana complex is conveniently located within a short drive to Ka'anapali/Whalers Village (3.4 miles), Kapalua (4.5 miles), Old Lahaina Town (6.5 miles) and Napili (3.3 miles) where you can enjoy a wide variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities.
We also have a Farmer's Market just down the road providing delicious produce and treats every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Please be sure to see the Reviews section to read about what prior guests had to say regarding the location. Many of them have enjoyed the location of the condo.
Kahului International Airport (OGG) is the main airport on the island. It is 30 miles from the condo (approximately a 45 minute drive without traffic). If you are flying to Maui directly from the mainland, you would fly in to the Kahului Airport (OGG).
Kapalua Airport (JHM) is .6 miles from the condo. It is a 2 minute drive. The Kapalua Airport is a small regional airport that mainly operates inter-island flights (to/from other Hawaiian islands).
Beach & Pool:
The Kuleana property fronts 2 beaches. Our unit is approximately 45 yards from the smaller private feeling beach cove. Please be aware that the beaches are subject to the currents and tides. Winter months are less predictable and the beaches can recede overnight. The beaches do not get closed down; however, the amount of sand/the size of the beach fluctuates.
The unit is near the large gated and heated pool (pool length is 20 yards).
Beach towels and 2 Tommy Bahama beach chairs are provided in our unit for your use during your stay.
There is a resurfaced tennis court on The Kuleana property available on a first come first serve basis. Tennis court hours are 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM (or until dark in the winter months).
There are 4 oceanfront gas barbecues available on property so you can grill while taking in the gorgeous views of the ocean and our neighboring islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i.
The barbecues are a very short walk from our unit yet far enough away so that you do not see or hear barbecuing activities from our lanai.
There is free and convenient on-site parking for one vehicle. The parking spaces are a bit tight so keep that in mind if you are renting a very large vehicle. Parking is close to the entrance of the unit making it easier to unload your luggage or groceries.
Free WiFi internet access is available inside the unit as well as the lobby area.
Please note that the purpose of the unit is primarily for relaxation and is not intended to serve as a home office.
NO smoking is permitted inside the unit, the lanai (balcony) or any of the buildings on the property.
There is a Concierge Desk located in our lobby. A Concierge & Activities Specialist is on site in the lobby Saturday mornings and can assist you with reservations for activities, cruises, tours, entertainment, etc. The Activities Specialist can also be contacted for assistance when off site as well. Maui dining, entertainment and activities information booklets/brochures can also be found in our lobby.
NOTE: No surfboards or SUP (stand-up paddle) boards are allowed to be stored inside the unit or on the lanai.
We are privileged to have world class golf courses nearby (within a 5 mile radius). The Plantation Course in Kapalua which is home of the PGA Tour Tournament of Champions is only 5 miles from the condo.
NOTE: Kapalua's Plantation Course, annually rated as a top 100 golf course in the world and consistently ranked as the “Best Golf Course You Can Play” in Hawaii, will undergo a multi-million dollar enhancement project. On-course work is expected to begin in February of 2019 and be completed in November 2019.
