This was a most amazing property with everything you could ever need. The beach front accommodations were an absolute feast for the eyes. Plenty of snorkeling right on property with sea turtles, massive amounts of fish, eels and octopus to see just walking out the back door. Great coffee within walking distance and downtown Lahaina just a 10 minute drive away for a little livelier nightlife if you want it. Property was super clean and had all the amenities you'll need for your quiet stay on Maui. Best views and proximity to nearly everything you'd want. Super safe area and very private!! We'll be back!!
Bob’s property was the perfect stay for my wife and I. The oceanfront view, the cleanliness, the provided amenities and the location of the Kuleana are unmatched. It is peaceful and quiet, away from the busy hotel areas. There are lots of beaches and shopping within a 10-minute drive as well as a 15-minute walk from our favorite breakfast spot, Java Jazz. The Kuleana is just as great as I remember from my visits here when I was younger with my family.
This property had everything we needed for a great Maui vacation. The location is excellent. Little bit slower and less expensive side of the island. Easy drive south to Lahaina and easy drive north to Napili beach (6 minutes). Lots of good food options north and south. The condo is perfect for two people. Kitchen had anything we needed, for in house and on the road. The beach set up was perfect and as pictured. Towels and playmate cooler fit the bill too. The west facing oceanfront view was spectacular, and i am not sure you could find a more relaxing lanai morning and night. You are getting full afternoon sun, and it does heat up the front room, so the lanai shade is needed in the afternoon for sure. The a/c in the master bedroom makes for a good nights sleep, but don't expect it to cool the entire unit. There are fans throughout and you can easily get a breeze flowing through the unit. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was enjoyable. The complex is very well maintained. A very nice pool, and a small beach for watching the sunset or looking for turtles. Communication from start to finish was very good. We will definitely look for the availability of this unit on our next trip to Maui.
We recently had the pleasure of staying at this incredible Maui condo, and we cannot say enough about how amazing our experience was! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the most awe-inspiring view of the sunsets over the water from the unit's patio. It was truly a sight to behold and created some of the most memorable evenings of our trip.
The full kitchen in the condo was an absolute delight. Even though we mostly used it for preparing breakfasts, it had everything we needed to whip up delicious meals. However, with the abundance of dining options nearby, we found ourselves venturing out to explore the local culinary scene. The convenience of Ubers and Lyfts being readily available meant we never had to wait more than a mere three minutes for a pickup. The close proximity to Lahina was an added bonus, as we thoroughly enjoyed visiting Front Street in the evenings. The lively atmosphere, charming shops, and fantastic restaurants made for unforgettable evenings out.
What truly made our stay exceptional were the thoughtful extras provided by the owners. The playmate cooler became our trusty companion on many of our day trips. It kept our drinks chilled and allowed us to enjoy refreshing beverages while exploring the beauty of Maui. The beach qchairs and umbrella provided by the property were a true blessing. With a small beach right on the premises, we had the perfect spot to relax and soak up the sun.
I honestly do not want to give this property a great review because I need it to be available when I return to Maui. Thank you to the owner for the A+ communication. The property is perfect! We will return.
My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and my birthday. The place was wonderful, clean and nice amenities. The view is spectacular!
We watched sea turtles and whales( happened to be whale season)from the lanai. There are so many options at this location. You can swim, snorkel or do nothing and enjoy the Sunset.
Definitely will return.
Wonderful experience. The condo was equipped with everything we could possibly be In need of. The location simply cannot be beat. Steps to the ocean. Breathtaking. We would stay here again without a moments hesitation
The location couldn’t possibly be beat with breathtaking views of the ocean from our balcony🌸
Condo was clean, well stocked, and comfortable.
Would stay here again and again and again
Loved every minute!
This is truly a great property. It is right on the water. A fantastic view from the lanai. The place is clean, comfortable, and peaceful, with the best sunset views. Amazing. The owner and property manager are wonderful. The location is perfect.
We will return to this little piece of Paradise! Mahalo.
Condo complex is very nice and the unit we stayed in had an incredible view. We got to enjoy watching the turtles and some beautiful sunsets from both the lanai and the beach! Condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time beach hopping and has been nicely remodeled. Would definitely stay there again!
We spent a week at Kuleana Resort and it was delightful. the grounds, pool and bbqs were outstanding as was the parking availability. Sadly, the sandy beach on the south end of the property has disappeared so the turtle watching and water access was more limited. Our condo was oceanfront on the second floor and came with everything you could imagine. Just right for two travelers. You must be an early riser, as the birds and fellow guests tend to be up at the crack of dawn and the bedroom windows are not soundproof. Best time was on the balcony in the evening watching the sun set and revisiting the days events. Aloha!
The sunsets on the balcony alone made this place worthwhile. Extremely comfortable bed, nice quiet location, endless turtle viewing on the beach, and well stocked kitchen made this a perfect spot for us. Parking was easy and the location was very convenient for nearby snorkeling. I do wish the blinds on the bedroom window were more substantial as the window faces out to the community pool. Overall, we loved our stay and would gladly return next time we're in Maui.
This is the best-equipped VRBO I have ever stayed in. The kitchen was the best well-stocked ... sharp knives, lots of cooking utensils, pots, pans, 2 coffee makers, coffee grinder, great blender, and most surprising .... lots of kitchen supplies like olive oil, balsamic vinegar, etc. Finally ... the view......steps away from the beach and the turtles.
This place has an amazing view. It was quiet and stocked with everything we needed.
We loved eating breakfast or dinner on the deck. The view and sound of the ocean was amazing..
We would stay here again!
What a beautiful property. Thank you to our hosts for an incredible stay. Their condo was immaculate. The kitchen was well stocked so we could enjoy our meals with an extraordinary view of the ocean, turtles, sunrises and sunsets. The property grounds were also kept immaculate. The barbecues were cleaned daily and pool was always crystal clear and refreshing. The small beach on the property was quiet, easily accessible and provided hours of enjoyment. Would definitely stay here again. Hopefully soon.
We loved our stay here and will come back. We loved the peacefulness and quietness of the facility. LOVED the sunsets. Every night they were amazing. And we could take amazing pictures directly from our lanai. Once we were walking in front of a resort where we had dinner and the beach was lined with crowds of people taking pictures of the sunset. We loved that we could enjoy the sunsets in from the privacy of our condo. We loved hearing the waves on the rocks below the condo, but were bummed hearing that the sand has shifted away (the turtles used to sun themselves on it). And it's a half mile from a sweet little beach that I loved walking to. It had a bench under a big shade tree to sit and listen to the waves and feel a cooling breeze. We loved it!
This property is absolutely beautiful and located in such a nice area. Everything was perfect inside and out. Can’t wait to come back
I highly recommend this listing, close to everything but tucked away with its on private beach to watch sunsets. Would book again :)
The property was wonderful. We had a great time.
This was my first time in Hawaii and it was a very pleasant experience. I was in town for a medical conference, so it was wonderful to return to this beautiful condo after a long day of learning. The view from the balcony is absolutely gorgeous and I got to watch the beautiful sunset every night. The area around the property is well maintained and the condo itself was clean and had everything (and more) a guest would ever need. Bob was super responsive when I sent him text messages.
Thanks for the wonderful stay Bob, I hope to be back soon! Aloha!
We were extremely pleased with this rental. Bob did an outstanding job of communicating clearly and effectively instructions on how to check in, what was and wasn't allowed, and what we should expect. Frankly, the property exceeded our expectations. The cost was exceptionally reasonable for anywhere, let alone Maui. Be prepared that there is only AC in the bedroom. It works incredibly well so you sleep cool at night, and didn't bother us that there wasn't AC in the rest of the unit. But that could be a shock for some people, it wasn't an issue for us. They had beach chairs, snorkel gear, a noodle, and boogie boards at the unit, which was a welcomed surprise. The views at the unit are second to none. We absolutely would go back again.
This property was perfect for us- a million dollar view, easy access to a private beach, sea turtles galore, and great snorkeling right off our lanai. The pool was lovely, the gardens lush and filled with blooming tropical flowers. We highly recommend vacationing here!
We have been to Maui mutliple times and this was our first stay at Kuleana. Peaceful, not crowded, amazing views. Check in was simple and the room is very nice with everything you need for your stay.
Well-maintained property with amazing views. Great spot central to all.
411 is a perfect property. The community is quiet and the grounds are well kept. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed and we enjoyed the sunsets on the lanai. Robert even provided beach chairs and umbrella! There is only a window air conditioner in the bedroom, but it was sufficient to keep the temps comfortable (we were there in mid May).
Since this unit is right on the water, the breezes and views were fantastic. Make sure to book ahead for restaurants, especially if you want to do a Luau. We would definitely stay there again.
Everything was awesome about this place. The location and space were well suited for our needs, and had everything we needed. The security was really good too. I hope to rent this place again in the future!
Fabulous condo, clean and furnished with everything you could possibly need. Watched the turtles and whales from the lanai.
I give it a 9.
An awesome stay! Everything was as listed and the view can't be beat. The whole process was seamless. I would absolutely stay here again!
This was our second time staying at Kuleana, and we love calling it 'our spot'. The location cannot be beat - the most grand views from the lanai and property. This truly is a slice of heaven.
Private, local, quiet and so much more packed into such a wonderful condo.
We cannot wait to go back home :)
Perfectly located and good access to swimming and snorkeling in front of the complex was great. Tons of hanu. Quiet and owner was very helpful and responsive
This is our third visit to Robert's condo. For us it is a place of peaceful memories, stunning views and a reminder of the beauty of creation. Robert is an excellent and attentive host and their condo is all we could ask for. We will be back!
It was everything promised and more… tastefully decorated with fun toys for the beach… we will definitely be coming back
Amazing condo space overlooking the ocean. Loved the quiet beach that we had direct access to from the property.
This is not our first day at the complex and hopefully it won’t be our last wonderful great place thank you for all your great services wonderful great place to stay at
Great view of the ocean from the lanai. We saw turtles every day including one sunbathinf on the complexes beach. In early August with southern swell the condo got pretty warm in the afternoon even with cross ventalation but the AC in the bedroom worked great.
The sunset and sunrise views were spectacular and this was the perfect location for a relaxing Hawaiian vacation. Host made it very easy to check in and use the property. Would definitely come back and have already recommended to several friends and family.
We loved our stay at Kahana. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The view was amazing and was close to many beaches, restaurants and activities. Would for sure stay again.
Lynne and Steve S.
Everything you would need or want. Truly. And, the BEST location for amazing sunsets, turtle swims and and privacy A conch horn at sun set each evening, and plenty of great places to eat nearby! Our little oasis away from home. ❤️
Thanks so much for a wonderful week in your lovely spot. The bed was very comfortable and we loved being right above the ocean and listening to the crashing of the waves. A couple of minor things we would have appreciated would be having the water faucet in the kitchen adjusted. It sprayed water all over whenever we used it. Also a toilet scrubber. Also, the key box at the entry does not work easily and we both tried repeatedly to open it. Finally we gave up and called security and he came over to try it himself and couldn't do it, so let us in with his key. I wanted to let you know that the green placemats are very sticky and one night we were having dinner out doors and when I removed the plate the mat stuck to it and pulled the wine glass, which I had not picked up, off the table and it broke. I felt bad about this and purchased a box of 4 wine glasses, which I left in the cupboard, so you now have 3 more wine glasses than you started with when we arrived. We hope to visit again one day!
We had a great experience at this condo. First of all, the location was better than we had imagined. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful and we were within walking distance to some great restaurants (Miso Phat was a great sushi place). Robert was extremely helpful in accessing the unit and with last minute parking questions. The condo was very clean and we had everything we could've needed - beach towels, chairs, an umbrella, ect. It was a great value for such a beautiful stay!

My husband and I had a lovely stay in this one bedroom for the Thanksgiving holiday. We liked the personal feel as opposed to the commercial feel at at hotel. The view is spectacular and couldn't get enough of it! Especially seeing the Honu bask on the beach. I'm a Honu guardian, so I was thrilled to see them everyday. The pool is also nice and has a deep end, which is not common these days.
The place is very clean, has a comfortable bed and nice shower. The only small issue was the faucet in the kitchen sink. The pressure is high, so when turned on it sprays a lot.
We would definitely rent it again and highly recommend it. Thank you to the owners!
The Kuleana Resort is just beautiful. The landscaping. The ocean. The flowers and birds and Turtles. Condo 411 is located in the best building in the resort. The furniture is comfortable. Including the King Size Bed. The owners were easy to work with. I highly recommend and we will return. Aloha!
We enjoyed our October stay, great time of year to visit. Saw a lot of turtles and enjoyed the beach right on the property! Pool is the largest in West Maui and enjoyed every minute of it. The condo was perfect. Clean and well stocked with everything you could think of. Highly recommend this condo and owners. They were great to work with.
Big thanks to Robert for making the process of using his unit at the Kuleana Resort in Honokowai such an easy process. The condo was situated right on the edge of the property with a fantastic view of the Pacific, and the Islands across from us. (Lanai and Molokai). The unit had everything we needed and we can't imagine a better place to stay in Maui. This was our third time on the Island and the next time we return we'll for sure try to stay here again if available. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Our stay at this condo was spectacular. The view and location from the water is stunning and the surf sounds rock you to sleep. The location to downtown Lahaina is just minutes yet you have quiet privacy in the home. It provides a very comfy king bed, fully stocked kitchen and even beach chairs and umbrella for beaching.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about our stay! It was wonderful! We had an awesome time and enjoyed every bit of the condo as well as the surrounding area. The condo had everything we could of needed and then some. From the kitchen to the tour books and snorkeling equipment. The lanai was spectacular and the views can't be beat! We saw whales and dolphins from the lanai. I don't think we really could have asked for anything more.
Staying at your place was so much better then staying at the big resorts. The condo was clean and had plenty of towels. Everyone at the complex was very nice.
I am a bartender and when I tell people about my stay in Maui, they want to to get your contact information. I have already given out your number and website to several people.
Thank you again for the use of your condo and I will definitely be contacting you again on my next trip to Maui.
This was my second stay at the Kuleana. I loved this condo! It's in the perfect location with one building and the pool separating it from the busy road. It was quiet and peaceful with the ever present sound of the waves. Comfortably furnished and super clean. The owner was great to work with. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the lanai while watching turtles and rainbows. A perfect way to start a day. The Farmers Market was always fun. I definitely recommend this condo. Pretty sure my next trip to Maui will find me staying right here again.
I have been meaning to write this review for a long time. My husband and I stayed in this condo for a little over a week in February, 2015. We had talked for years about going to see the whales in Maui. This year we had the opportunity to do so, so I set out to find a waterfront condo where we could watch the whales from the lanai and it wouldn't break the bank. From our first interaction with Bob until the end of our trip, everything went smoothly. He answered all my questions and I felt confident we picked the right place to stay. We left our house and it was -6 degrees outside and we arrived on Maui to temperatures in the 80s. When we got to the condo, the first thing we noticed when we walked inside was how clean it was. Then, of course, we had to go look at the view. I knew it was ocean front and close to the water, but until you actually see it, you don't really know how fabulous it is. There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about that view....of course it is our computer screensaver so that helps! We got up in the morning, sat out on the lanai and watched for whales. This was pretty much our routine whenever we were in this condo. I hate to admit that we are tv watchers on vacation and we did the first night, but it was never turned on again our entire trip. The condo complex is in a nice area and it was a great home base to wherever we wanted to travel to on the island. If you are looking for a whale watch, we went out on the Teralani. We definitely recommend it. We went out first thing in the morning and it was not crowded so there was a good view from anywhere on the boat. We loved going to Front Street and walking around. Local Boys Shave Ice was our favorite daily treat. We also enjoyed Aloha Mixed Plate for breakfast, the fried rice is very addicting. Before I end, I just want to say that it is obvious the owners take pride in their condo. The upgrades are wonderful. This is definitely a condo we would recommend to anyone looking for an oceanfront place to stay on Maui. We have already begun to save so we will be able to return.
