Gorgeous Kuleana Oceanfront Maui Condo Near Kahana!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Kuleana is one of the best-kept secrets on the West side of Maui. Once you go, you get it! The Kuleana is spread over 7 tropical acres of well kept, manicured grounds shaded with Plumeria Trees. Fragrant flowers abound, including Wild Ginger, Hibiscus, and Bird of Paradise. And yes, we have bananas!

This second floor, one bedroom, one bath condominium is just STEPS away from the ocean, with a seasonal beach directly in front of the unit. Sip Kona Coffee in the morning while listening to the waves rolling on to the shore. In the winter, you can watch the whales swimming in the channel. Enjoy a glass wine as you watch some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world right from your lanai.

If you love the beach, we are just minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world: the beaches at Kaanapali, Flemings Beach, and Honoloa Bay. Depending on the tides, there is usually a nice, sandy beach right in front of the unit. If you're more of a 'pool person,' a beautiful hand-tiled swimming pool is right outside your front door (and it's heated). We have snorkels and fins in the unit for you to use on the reefs off the Kuleana, where you can see beautiful tropical fish and huge Honu (sea turtles). Our tennis court sees lots of action, so be sure to bring your racket!

We are ten minutes away from the shopping and restaurants of Lahaina to the south, and ten minutes away from the world-famous golf courses and restaurants of the Kapalua Resort to the north.

Enjoy the understated elegance of our 'Hawaii Home.' We have remodeled our unit and decorated it to bring the outside in. The floors are tiled and the walls reflect the color of the beautiful sandy beaches. You'll find tumbled coral tile in the bathroom and kitchen, along with new stainless steel appliances. We are constantly striving to improve our beautiful place, so please let us know what we can do to make it better!

The Kuleana means 'concern' in Hawaiian -- and our concern is to make sure you enjoy our beautiful place and come back again!

About Alex Langenberg

We are a Navy family living in San Diego and have been visiting Maui for nearly 20 years. The Kuleana is a very special place for us, and many of our friends have wound up getting married here. We are very happy to share our beautiful Hawaii Home with you and we hope to see you again!

Alex Langenberg purchased this condo in 2001

Why Alex Langenberg chose Lahaina

The Kuleana is a quiet resort that is spread out over beautiful tropical grounds. You won't feel crowded here. The location is just perfect, as we're away from some of the busy traffic and 'touristy' spots, but close enough to everything that you'll never be bored! Our unit is at the end of the '400 building,' which is the most popular due to its location between the ocean and the pool. It is also the furthest from the street, so you are insulated from the noise of traffic. There is only one unit below ours and one unit to the left. There is no one above you, which is very nice......

Beautiful Oceanfront View

  • 5 of 5

It is not unusual for a place to look better in the pictures than it does in person. That's not the case with this Kuleana condo. It looks very nice in the pictures but even better in person. The lanai was fantastic and was where we spent our time while in the condo. The view was fantastic and the sound of the waves was really nice. We saw whales and sea turtles as well as beautiful sunsets. The little beach was just steps away. So close! There is a larger beach on the other end of the resort.

The condo was the perfect size for my wife and I. Three or four people would also work as it has a sleeper couch. The lanai has a large table and will seat 4 easily. I only mention this because you will want to have your meals there while enjoying that fantastic view. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and thank you to the people that left the coffee filters as we forgot them while shopping. The bed was comfortable and the ac in the bedroom was great at night. While there in the day we opened the front door and lanai door and had a nice breeze.

The pool was much larger than I expected and plenty of loungers available. There are grills but we went out for dinner while there. The grounds are very well kept and the whole place just beautiful. (of course this is Maui, what would you expect?)

Thank You very much and hopefully we will make it back someday.

The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

We took our "once-in-a-lifetime" trip to Maui eight years ago, and have been back every year since then - the last six at Kuleana. Situated just far enough from the hustle of the major resort areas to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of Maui at its best, but close enough to shopping and dining when so desired. The evening sunsets over the island of Lanai are spectacular! Kuleana is the perfect base to experience all of what Maui has to offer. It can be as remote or as busy as you want it to be, and you don't have to go too far for either extreme. This specific condo is our favorite location at Kuleana. Direct ocean/beach front from the lanai with the pool directly behind, and isolated from the street noise. Easy access to the small beach in front of the condo (when it's there!) and a 60 second walk to the larger beach at the opposite end of the resort. The owner is very friendly and easy to work with. We have already booked for next year and plan to keep coming back as long as they let us!! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise!

Great Little Condo with an Amazing View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this lovely little condo. The view from the kitchen was simply breathtaking. We ate all of our meals on the lanai with candlelight and wine. While others have mentioned that this place is small, it was perfect for our family. We let our son sleep in the bedroom while we slept to the sounds of the ocean on the pullout. The pullout mattress could use an upgrade, but we brought a mattress topper from our daughter's apartment, and it was perfect! The only reason for four stars was the grumpy retirees who zealously evangelize the HOA policies (don't even think about wearing a swimsuit more modern than the 1950's or suffer their glaring contempt) and the management who harass you into submission when the said retired homeowners complain, which is unceasingly. They only backed off when we threatened a lawsuit for violating federal ADA laws when they harassed our special needs daughter when she visited with her service dog. This is by no means a reflection of the homeowner, who was a delight to work with. Would love to return to this place when the management realizes that they serve both retirees and rental property owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. I am glad you enjoyed our Condo. I heard that the dog was an issue- several guests who were on vacation could hear it barking from inside the unit and that it was also off leash. The units are close together and sounds really carries. The staff must respond to complaints from guests and are in a no win situation when trying to appease guests and mitigate complaints. Threatening to sue is not the resolution any of us desire, especially since staff did not know the dog was a service dog. Having a service dog is never an issue at the Kuleana, however neither I nor the front desk was informed that you would be having a service dog with you. Had that been the case, staff could have, and would have handled this entirely differently. As a board member I can tell you we understand and abide by ADA laws. In the future we kindly ask that you inform us first so that staff can properly be appraised of the situation and handle any complaints from others appropriately. This is all in the good spirit of Aloha.

The condo was just what we wanted.

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a more private accommodation. This was perfect. We felt like we were in our own home. All the necessary stuff was there and we ate most of our meals watching the waves on the lanai. Loved the pool, right out the door. The grounds are well taken care of. Lots of birds, only saw one turtle and that was 2 condos south of us. We had high surf and the turtles went looking for calmer water. Saw a mongoose for the first time ever!

My only complaint is the sofa bed. It is unsleepable. I tried it the first night and because I was exhausted I did sleep. But from then on I did not pull the bed out. I took the back pillows off and slept on the sofa. I'm only 5' tall, so it worked. A couple would be miserable. Correct this and you would get 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your complimentary review and I’m so glad you enjoyed staying at the Kuleana. The sofa bed mattress was just replaced and you were the first to sleep on it so I am calling the supplier ASAP!! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We want all aspects of your stay to be 5-star

Great property, beach and pool.

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and quiet. The private beach access was great for snorkeling. Sea turtles often frequented the beach. The location is convenient to everything. Would definitely come back.

If You Want Your View To Look Like A Hawaiian Postcard, Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

You really must be here in the flesh to believe this place. I'm certain Kuleana is, in reality, the Biblical Garden of Eden. My husband and I have turned the internet upside down, left and right, looking for a place on ANY Hawaiian island that can match this one building in the complex for the view, value, private beach, closeness to the water and we other resort, right next door! That's it! On any Hawaiian island! As we sat on the lanai one morning, we overheard a man directly below us say, "Ya, we have a great view, but this unit above us is really where I would have liked to stay". We sure felt smug, as we silently agreed with him. Also, I have to laugh every time I see ads for the "turtle town" snorkeling excursions that people pay big bucks for. THIS is turtle town. No need to hop on a boat. You will practically collide with turtles on this beach, in and out of the water, and these are healthy, big ones. As a matter of fact, as my husband laid sunning himself on the left side pocket beach, one hauled himself out of the sea and plopped down not twelve feet from him. If you are looking for a natural refuge from the canned vacation that I try to avoid, look no further. This particular unit is one of only a handful in the complex that meet our very fussy criteria. The owners were easy to work with, and we trusted them because they've been renting here for a long time. Oh ya, there's even a purified water dispenser in the lobby for refilling your bottles. No more lugging heavy, expensive water back from the store.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We've always said, "Once you go, you get it" Being on the second floor, you're able to have more privacy on the lanai and better views of the ocean and all it offers. This is truly a Hawaiian paradise and we are so pleased that you loved it as much as we do.
