Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 comfortably)
I am a software engineer from San Jose, California. I have many hobbies including on road and off road motorcycle riding, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, photography, and cooking. Maui is the perfect place to enjoy all of these activities. Being only a 5 hour flight away, Maui has become an ideal vacation getaway for me.
Neil purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Neil chose Lahaina
On my first visit to Maui, I stayed at the Kuleana Resort. I quickly discovered that I loved the island of Maui and wanted to return year after year. After looking at other resorts in the area and what they had to offer, I found that the Kuleana resort was far and above the others, because of the fantastic oceanfront location, the lush tropical grounds, and the magnitude of onsite activities and amenities. I purchased this condo for my personal vacations and to share the Maui experience with others.
What makes this Condo unique
Spending time at the Kuleana has become my favorite pastime. Being an avid bbq’er this is the ideal vacation home as it has a full kitchen, a full size fridge/freezer, and four common bbq grills right at the ocean’s edge. I can bbq while watching the amazing sunsets, sailboats passing by, and an array of active sea critters such as the big green sea turtles, manta rays/spotted eagle rays, whales during whale season, and even occasional sightings of dolphins, flying fish, and Hawaiian monk seals. On one occasion I even had the opportunity to bbq a 3 pound octopus I caught spear fishing on the reef just offshore from the condo! I also enjoy simply lazing around, enjoying the beautiful views, sunsets, pool, and gardens. If you have any questions at all about this condo or my rental policy please email me directly to get around the VRBO feature of 'blanking out' email addresses of both the inquiring guests and the replies by the owner.

Beautiful ocean front, lanai is 50 steps from ocean! Grounds are beautiful, accommodation was perfect!
Quick 2 night stay!
We only stayed for our last 2 nights in Maui, wish it was longer. The condo itself was clean and had everything you needed but definitely showing its age and could use some updating. It is the perfect size for a couple. We truly enjoyed the convenience of this ground floor condo, just steps from the beach and spent most of our time soaking in the views from the lanai. Our most memorable time from our trip, was the sunsets from the lanai!
Thank you Neil for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise!
Wonderful Beach Front Condo with Million Dollar Views! Just steps to the beach.
What an amazing little place you have Neil! My husband and I LOVED your condo and the location and views were to die for. If you are reading this and wondering if a ground floor condo is the way to go, my answer is yes. To be able to be in Maui and wake every morning to the ocean, and the most beautiful beach, just footsteps away was a dream come true. The condo is small but for my husband and I it was perfect. The bedroom was spacious, the king bed comfy, the kitchen and living area were just enough, the bathroom is great too. We didn't turn the TV on once but that was our goal. The condo was really clean and had everything we needed, the property was really nice too. The grills are located so that you have the most amazing view as well while cooking. It was quiet and just an amazing place to stay. Thank you so much Neil for being so great to work with as well. We will be back!!
Views, location, owner thought of everything!!!!
We stayed a week and it was perfect. Small kitchen with everything and stores near by. Ground level so you can walk right out to beach... Grills on property and heated pool... Owner has snorkeling gear for use at little beach on property ... Clean and picture perfect. His pictures on ad accurately describe condo. I would stay here again should I get to come back. Btw. Owner is quick to reply!!!
Began summer the right way!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kuleana in Neil's condo. Thank you Neil for your Aloha spirit and hospitality. I have pretty much the same story as all the other happy reviews as well. Weather was perfect, sunsets the best, people were very gracious. Couldn't ask for more. I've already started planning for next year.
Another great visit to Kuleana!
We have been coming to Kuleana, every year for the past ten years. You can't beat the location, close to the water, incredible Sunsets every night, and Neil's unit is one of the nicest we have stayed in. Neil is great to deal with, really wants you to enjoy his place, and keeps it equipped with every thing you would need for a nice stay. We will be back soon, planning a return now!
