Probably the closest to the shore, and the best view I’ve ever had

We loved the amazing ocean views from the lanai! We saw whales breaching and turtles. The sunsets were awesome! The condo is very clean and nicely equipped. King bed was comfortable. There is a large community pool and nice BBQ grilling area. Margie is a great host. She is very communicative and responsive with questions about condo, the area or information about your booking. The location is close to great restaurants, outdoor activities and shopping. We had a short visit and wished we could have stayed longer!

This stylish unit is located close to superb snorkel beaches, fine restaurants, and takeout options. The well maintained landscaping and pool area provide a chill ambience that let's you relax and enjoy the best Maui has to offer.

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. Pros: quite neighborhood. close to shops and beach cons: the beach is not swimmable with rocks. this is with no fault of the owners as it varies because of the tide. The washer and dryer is not in the building, but it is easy to use. It would have been nice to have some basic supplies such as salt and oil for cooking. The AC in the bedroom is very loud. Also with the location where the unit is located, there is a lot of outside noise of cars and other tenants. overall a great stay. would have appreciated more information on best places to visit and things to do.

This property was just perfect. Condo was the closest one to the water, the pool, and the grills in the entire complex. Very comfortable bed, even the pullout was good for our daughter. All the needed dishware was included, we especially used the electric water pitcher & French press, although there were a multitude of other coffee brewing machines. Located within 1 to 3 miles of everything you would want to do including Luau's and water tours. Many beaches to choose from. Was nice to help support the rebuilding town of Lahaina as well.

We had an excellent stay in Kuleana 605. The check-in instructions were very thorough. The condo was very clean with nice appliances and a modern yet beachy vibe. The grounds were kept very clean and manicured. The folks working at this location were friendly and helpful and it felt very secure. The ocean decided to remove quite a bit of the sand in the northern beach area but the snorkeling was still great and lots of surfing going on just south of the property. It was surprisingly warm for December and were thankful of the AC at bedtime. We had a wonderful stay! A huge Mahalo to the wonderful people of Maui and their huge hearts!

We loved our stay here. The view out the patio to the ocean is just beautiful. We loved opening up the door and watching and listening to the waves come in. We were there during whale season, and could lounge on the lanai with some binoculars and watch the wales breaching in the waters. Sea turtles were also swimming around the rocks below. Just an amazing spot! The neighborhood was great as well. We found Bad Ass Coffee just down the street, which had amazing coffee. There's also Miso Phat Sushi up the street, which had amazing sushi. Both within walking distance. It was also a quick drive to Whaler's Village and Kaanapali Beach. Just a great central location.

Really had a great time! The property is tucked back and away from the beaten path! It felt like its own little piece of the island. Communication was great during the questions about the area reopening after such a terrible loss due to fires. That being said, this property was physically unaffected. We will be back on our next trip to West Maui!!

We love our trips to Hawaii and the Kuleana is one of our favorite spots.This is a fabulous property. Well maintained, beautiful grounds, great pool, and right on the water's edge. It definitely has the feel of "Old Hawaii". That being said, what makes it even more enjoyable is this corner unit. Lovely view, many interior updates, and very comfortable. Sunsets from the lanai were a sight to behold!! We will definitely be returning in the future.

December 2023

This property has beautiful Hawaiian vegetation, palm trees and lit tiki torches throughout. There are turtles on the beach. Our 1BR condo on the 3rd(top) floor is very well kept, with super cute furnishings and decor and a large lanai. And the ocean view is spectacular. The pool is clean and the perfect temperature as well. We would highly recommend this property.

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Lani table pictured in your advertisement is a safety hazard. Unlike the outdated new-like picture, the current metal base is very rusted and presents an extreme hazard for cuts and infections or even worse.The bedroom has two major issues. The chain activated light switch on the ceiling fan doesn't work. So, whenever the fan is on the four lights are also on.The material on the old corner chair is flaking. These flakes then get on clothing, on the floor, and bedding.Destination Maui Realty needs to ensure that their rental properties are safe, well maintained, and depict a Resort.

Thi sis my third time staying at the Kuleana Resort. The staff was friendly and always greeted you when they passed by. The grounds were immaculate, as was my unit. I didn't use the grill this time, but upon inspection it was clean and ready to go. I received two calls from the management company. Once a few hours after I checked in asking if the check process went smooth, it did. I was also able to check in early. Then about midway through my stay to make everything was to my liking. They have everything you need for a great stay. Dollie's is a local hang out that has good food, and fair prices. The staff was great too! It's maybe a mile north of the resort, next to it is Miso Phat, a great sushi place. They do not serve alcohol, but you can go next door and drink it with your meal. I didn't see any children and I was okay with that, but that doesn't they weren't there. All and all, this is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it. And be sure to check out Slaughterhouse Beach. The best beach on Maui! Mahlo, Quinton

Great location and views from the deck, its small but has king bed and worked good for us. Beach was small but that comes and goes. Kinda hard to swim out front due to rocks. Turtles galore overall we loved it. Just far enough to be private and close enough to be just a short drive to everything.

We were traveling for our 30th wedding anniversary. The property was exactly as advertised and a wonderful stay. The images from the property are accurate. Amazing views of the beach and ocean! It was so nice to relax on the balcony and listen to the waves. We also saw many sea turtles right from the property. The property was clean and the bed was very comfortable. These are very important to us when traveling. Eileen was an amazing host. She gave great beach recommendations and was extremely accommodating with us on our stay. We had a later flight so she allowed us to check out a little later which was very kind. If we ever get a chance to return to Maui we will try to book here first!

Prior to arrival, I messaged the owner asking if we were able to check in early, but unfortunately I had to jump through another hoop and contact the property manager, Maui Condo and Home (no number was provided by the owner). We were dealing with an exhausted toddler, so we thought it would be a reasonable request since it was less than an hour before check in, but didn't even bother doing the research to find the number since I had to help with our little one. Problems: 1. Dirty dishes, cutting boards, and silverware 2. Updated shower is not updated. Hopefully they can update it by providing a showerhead that isn't supposed to be used at the local beach showers. 3. Poor communication between renters and property management company. Left a message regarding a missing ceiling fan remote and issues with operability, but never was recontacted. 4. Extremely dangerous tile on the lanai (patio) due to how slippery it gets when wet 5. No beachtowels provided to dry off appropriately at beach or pool Lastly, we were disappointed when we were charged $63 for numerous towels and bed linen that were supposedly stained. Due to extensive construction on the west side, there is a lot more red dirt than normal and it is affecting the condos along the lower road. Because of the red dirt sticking to visitors' feet, white towels are subsequently being stained. Sadly, this owner and property management company will continue to charge renters extra as long as red dirt is in the air.

We spent 10 wonderful and relaxing days at Kuleana Resort. The property is very well maintained with beautiful gardens, a large pool, and BBQs cleaned daily. The ocean view from the condo is absolutely breathtaking and you can hear the sound of the waves while relaxing in the living room. The condo had everything we needed, including plenty of towels, bedding and kitchen supplies. We really appreciated being able to borrow a cooler, chairs, and sun umbrella for full days at the beach. We saw turtles swimming in front of the property and especially enjoyed the evening sunsets and tiki torches lit all around the perimeter. Kathy is an excellent host. She provided very clear directions and check-in instructions, along with lots of tips on where to eat and shop. She also checked in on us to make sure we arrived ok, helped us try to locate a pair of “lost” sunglasses (which were later found) and allowed us to check out late to accommodate our flight schedule. Thank you Kathy and Jim for sharing your wonderful vacation home with us!

Reviewer Comments: It’s been years since we stayed at the Kuleana and were pleasantly surprised with the updated unit and beautiful landscape at this location. We explored the beach out front and enjoyed snorkeling and cooling off in the ocean. Pool was pristine and refreshing to take an evening swim The views from the unit were amazing, the living space was nicely arranged and furnishings were clean and modern. Shower was great and we really enjoyed an air conditioned bedroom! We much prefer a smaller resort rather than a mega hotel where you have to pay extra for parking and then have to wander through lobbies and elevators to get to your room. The Kuleana was perfect for our tropical home away from home!!

Let me start by saying we will return to this property. Premium location, close enough to everything on the west side, yet far away to give you that peaceful island feel. Impressive vistas of Moloka‘i and Lānaʻi. This property is targeted to adults who are looking for peace and quiet. Very calm, very clean, very well maintained property and condo. No thrills, no frills, but if what you are looking for is a very well maintained and calm place to stay and unwind, this is your spot. The management were very useful and quick to respond. The unit is small, so it is perfect for a couples get away. The only minus points are: When we stayed, there was very little beach equipment in the unit. We left a beach umbrella we purchased; here's hoping it finds good use. Also, the balcony needs a bit of TLC. In order to have the gorgeous views, the unit is looking directly at the water facing west, this means you will get hit directly by the sun in the afternoon. The lanai shades are in need of a bit of repair to secure them in place and still be able to enjoy the sunsets. Honestly, everything else was great. As I said, we will be returning soon.

We were so happy with the location of this rental and the amazing views from our lanai. We love to stay in the Lahaina area of Maui and this condo is our favorite so far. We were devastated to hear of the fire that affected so many residents and others of Lahaina. Our prayers and hopes are with them so that they can receive peace and relief in this difficult time. We wondered how the effects of the fires would affect a trip to Maui. It was sad to see the devastation left by the fires but we were able to enjoy the island of Maui in different ways than we had in the past and still support local vendors as they try to recoup from their losses. This condo offers many amenities that we enjoyed while staying there. They had a washer a dryer, a dishwasher, an air conditioner in the bedroom plus a fan and a fan in the living room. The Lanai is large for the size of the condo. They had two beach chairs, and some other equipment like an umbrella for the beach and a mat or two. The sofa bed is really comfortable and when made into a bed it is way better than many other sofa beds we have used. There are nice TV’s in the living room and in the bedroom. We didn’t reallly ever use them since we spent much of our time outside. The sunsets are gorgeous from this location and the grounds are amazing and so beautiful. The property management company and the owners were very helpful and accommodating for our times and dates with a last minute booking. We will definitely be renting here again

Thoughtfully curated the ice trys were full when I got in. The place had all kinds of appliances and kitchen items to make the maui's farmer markets even more delicious! The lights were primarily on dimmers so the evenings could have lovely ambiance, especially with the backdrop of the stars from the balcony and the sound of the waves. Things like beach towels, in addition to bathroom towels, extra garbage bags, ziploc bags (so helpful for the flight home) and an extension cord all made the stay that much more simple. There were also plenty of things in drawers and cabinents I didn't get the chance to use, like the juicer, that would be a perk to many. Turtles even like to hang out just past the bbq area so you don't even have to travel to enjoy their beauty. The host was also prompt in responses and left clear directions and instructions which made things easy.

I have stayed at Kuleana several times over the years. This was our first time in 409 and through Epic Realty. We had requested early check-in and were told several times to keep checking back. Even though the unit was not rented the week before and cleaning was clearly done, we were not allowed in early. Had the owner/management just told us that up front, this would have been better than being led on. The unit was very nice and nicely furnished. There was an issue with the kitchen faucet that needs to be corrected (probably replaced) and I’ll notify management of this upon check out (didn’t want to deal with plumber). The stream of water feature did not work at all. Only full spray so every time it was turned on you had a nice shower and stove and counters got pretty wet. A bit annoying. Overall, great stay as Kuleana property is wonderful.

Everything about this place was wonderful. This was our first time at this property but our second stay on Maui, and it was even better than our first. The location is even more beautiful than the pics. The condo was perfect for us. We stayed 15 days and enjoyed every minute. We especially liked the small private access beaches. We saw lots of turtles. The gas grills overlooking the ocean were always clean. We cooked a few times at sunset. The pool was tended every day, the landscaping is immaculate and parking was easy. The owner is easy to contact. Our condo was easy to cool and we only ran the bedroom a/c at night. Our family visited and stayed on the same property but at a different condo. Theirs was nice but not as nice as ours. We highly recommend this condo.

We love the property which is very beautiful and well maintained. We also love #416 for the views on two sides of the condo. However, the condo appeared to be in need of some TLC and is definitely showing it's wear and tear. Also, we had to buy toilet paper and Kleenex as those that were supplied were cheap and like sandpaper. There was only one spare roll of paper towels in the kitchen and one spare trash bag for the kitchen trash can and half a bottle of dish detergent(very small bottle). Very sparce supplies considering we stayed for 2 weeks and for what is being charged per night.

The snorkeling is fantastic. The unit is simple, but it has everything you need for comfort and relaxation. It is clean and updated. The air conditioner in the bedroom is loud, but it was very nice to cool down the room before going to bed. The fan kept it cool enough thru the night. We enjoyed meals on the lanai. Kitchen is stacked. We enjoyed the lawn chairs provided for sunsets on the lawn outside. The king bed is very comfortable. My mom slept on the fold out couch and she reported sleeping very well, enjoying the ocean sounds. We saw lots of turtles right outside feeding along the lava rocks. Beautiful birds too and my favorite plumeria tree. Neighbors are considerate and it is a very quiet place. We love it!!!

Simply WOW! This place was everything we hoped for and so much more! The unit was beautiful and the view was spectacular. We just got back and I'm already recommending this place to everyone.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and we were greeted with an anniversary balloon and bottle of champagne. The deck was lovely to enjoy our morning coffee on. We greatly enjoyed ourselves!

My husband and I planned a last minute getaway to Maui and we couldn't believe the pricing albeit the recent explosion fire in Lahaina. We originally were going to cancel and then decided to volunteer and spend money in West Maui to contribute (we stayed close to Napili-Honokowai area). True...it was sad to see our beloved Lahaina devastated and destroyed but the locals were kind and appreciated our inquiries on their wellbeing. The condo was absolutely perfect. We loved the view and the rocky beach with turtles. It was very quiet. The only Con was the strength of the internet (but then who comes to HI and worry about the internet! Hahaha Thanks for making our stay comfortable. Aloha and Mahalo🙌💜😎✨

Perfect location for the relaxing vacation we wanted. The property was beautiful, the views cannot be beat. Sea turtles right on the beach steps from the unit. The condo was clean and well supplied. Many restaurants close by.

Incredible location and a comfy place to relax after a dry, sunny day :) which is every day in Maui, apparently. Most areas of the beach were relatively easy to get down to--one of those storms probably took away some of the sand before our visit, but we didn't mind climbing down a few larger rocks to get to the sandy part. If you're like me and want to spend as much time as possible on some sort of beach, there are several other access points a 5-10 minute walk north or south that are just as beautiful, and usually don't have that many other people around. The south one also has a bunch of stores and a farmer's market across the street. On our last day I went to the north beach and a group of sea turtles were feeding so close to the shore that they kept bumping into me with the tide. So, if that's the kind of vacation you're looking for... The condo itself was clean and well-maintained--possibly a bit on the older side?, but all the appliances worked, and Neil was really helpful and responsive the whole time. The snorkeling equipment was a nice bonus. A/C is only located in the bedroom, but it was definitely cold enough for us. And why would you want to be inside when you're in Maui anyway?! (Long story short: 100% recommended unless you hate sunshine and palm trees)

Ronny is the best VRBO host! This property is beautiful, with views of Molokai, and big sea turtles right on the beach at the property! The wildfires hit Lahaina shortly after our arrival, and Ronny kept us comfortable and safe at a property in Kihei. I would only use Ronny in the future!

Good location, very well maintained complex with BBQs, pools, amazing sunsets and small but nice beach (some rocks and sand)- perfect for snorkelling and watching sunsets. Apartment is fully equipped with everything you need. Missing the BBQ utensils and sun umbrella (which not work). AC cools only the bedroom, but the ceiling fan and the draft from the patio door did the trick in the living room. Be careful using the bathroom towels- we got charged $20 after the trip for a small stain on one of the towels (must have been from the sandy feet). Otherwise, it was a nice stay.

We stayed here during the week when Lahaina was burned down to rubble. We were not able to change our return flights so we stayed for the whole trip. It was a devastating period of time for the locals who were heavily impacted. For us, it was both heart-wrenching and heart-warming. During our stays, we met more locals than tourists, with whom we had awesome conversations and supported each other. The property is in an excellent location. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset every day. It is literally a few steps away from the ocean and the kids swam every day. We also spotted green turtles. It is only a few minutes' drive to the other beaches including Kaanapali and Kapalua Bay. Local stores and restaurants are all within walking distance. The condo is nice and clean. It has AC in the bedroom, ceiling fans in both the bedroom and the living room, and one upright fan. However, when the power went out, we realized that we actually didn't need them. We left both the front and back doors open and the wind was cool and nice. Supplies in the property are sufficient. There are grills in the property complex so even with no power, we managed to eat well. We were very touched that Kerry refunded our payment as we didn't expect it at all. He has also set up a GoFundMe account and made donations to the Kuleana employees and their families who lost their homes. It was an unusual and unforgettable trip. We want to send our thankfulness to Kerry, our neighbors and the volunteers. Mahalo!

The living room was hot but they provided a great fan to cool us off. The pool was wonderful and the staff were all just lovely.

The red dust it was all over the condo couldn’t be clean properly because there was no mop Russ to do that and then when the electricity went out because of the fires, we weren’t even able to use the washer and dryer to wash things and we had to keep here windows open in order to breathe because of the heat overall love the Nicely taken care of workers there are unbelievable they should all be recalled rewarded for their kindness. I will always think highly of Juliana. We have stayed there and advertise before this unit was exactly located just the red dust everywhere that much anyone to do about that I suppose.

John and his wife are amazing people! I'll start with the basics. The condo was clean and very well appointed. Everything you would need to make your vacation fun and comfortable, we had guests in other rooms jealous of our water toys. The location is unbeatable! Just steps away from a small but perfect beach with amazing waves (can be heard from the bedroom). No turtles came on the beach itself, but we saw many from the lanai, and walking the grounds (which are beautiful). Now to the good stuff (sorry if it gets long). We got to the condo about 30 minutes before the fire in Lahaina started and we had not gone to the grocery store before we got there. So, no power and no food, panic set in. John called the next morning to check if we were ok and we let him know of our situation. He did not hesitate to let us have access to some food they had in the condo and expressed the utmost concern and love. Might be a little dramatic but this literally saved my life as I'm a diabetic and really needed to eat. His wife also called the next day to confirm we were ok. Ty, the property manager also came through in a big way and gave me a box of protein bars to keep me feed till we could go to town to get some basics. The entire staff at the complex was amazing! Helpful in just being decent humans taking care of others and keeping us updated when they could. When West Maui recovers we will be going back and will be staying in this condo again. Mahalo!

The condo was very nice and the grounds beautiful. We would stay again. Unfortunately, we were there when Hurricane Dora passed by. We lost power from the wind and headed into Lahaina searching for coffee in the morning. We ended up heading to Kihei for the day and then returned passing through Lahaina about forty five minutes before the fire shut down the road. We were very lucky to not have been there at the wrong time. The resort has propane BBQs that came in handy for residents to cook on, since the power was out. People came together and shared what food they had. The resort also housed some of those who had just been evacuated from Lahaina.

We have stayed at 3 other locations at the Kuleana resort and this was our favorite. The place was updated and they had everything we needed for the beach which was a huge plus. We will be back.

We stayed for a week. Very chill environment. Perfect for families. We have kids ages 8 & 10 who love the outdoors. Seeing turtles in our backyard and snorkeling with them was the greatest experience for us. Note: it can get warm in the condo but a little dip in the pool or beach can definitely help cool you down so we made it work. Also, the backyard beach is rocky in most areas so be careful. Cool spot especially for snorkeling!

Rating Details: The property manager was adequately helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Under the circumstances thing went pretty well. I have stayed there many times over the last two decades. My only complaint is there was no FASHLIGHT, or CANDLES In the room. I had an accident when a gust of wind slammed the screen door against my arm. I was grateful for the time share people for help because there was no one in your office to help. On the other hand I thought it was a wonderful thing for the get together by the barbecue on Thursday.

We were going to do a snorkeling tour and several people told us that the best snorkeling was here, right in front of our condo. We did not believe them. So we rented some snorkeling gear and checked it out. WOW they were right. We saw a dozen turtles if no more. I saw at least 10 octopuses. And the fish were so beautiful. The condo was great. Very clean and the perfect size for a couple. Every night we sat out on the lanai and listened to the waves. Great place to stay. So close to shopping and everything. Don’t pass it up, you will regret it.

The view pictures do not do it justice. By far the best unit in the complex. Next to the steps to the ocean, bbq grill and ocean. Unit has everything you would need and then some. It did get hot in the living room by night and it was challenging to cool down but the fans helped.

The unit was just as advertised. The perfect place for a couple to stay! Unit was clean and we had no issues throughout. We were able to walk over to a small beach and just a short drive to Kaanapali and Lahaina! Would recommend.

Rating Details: The property manager was very unhelpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The view and location were amazing. We watched turtles from our patio. We were steps away from great snorkeling. The place was very well appointed with a well stocked kitchen. We absolutely loved this place, and were looking forward to 8 nights in paradise. Unfortunately, one night I was awoken by something crawling on me and found a bug on my mattress. I captured it to identify it. It was a bedbug. I brought it to the front desk the next morning. The woman at the front desk took the captured bug and took a picture of the bite on my arm. She told me management would get in touch. After a bit I finally heard back that they had had the unit inspected and were told that no bugs were found. Given that they had proof positive of a bedbug, I believe management is being quite lax. This is the 3rd time that we have stayed at this condo. It really is a wonderful place but I don't regret cutting this trip short. I do not like sleeping with bedbugs! I would have rated this 5 stars if it were not for the bedbug and lack of treatment.
