Overview

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......

Awesome

We own another unit in this complex and stayed a few extra nights in unit 409. Loved it. We love that it's right on the ocean. It felt so private and peaceful. And as always, we loved the turtles!!!

The best Kuleana condo I’ve stayed in

  • 5 of 5

Really loved this place. The location of the condo on the property is right on the ocean with the pool on the other side. It’s very tastefully decorated. We loved just sitting on the lanai feet away from the ocean - for morning coffee and afternoon drinks. The beach is just steps away. The condo is far away from the road so we never heard the traffic. Just the sound of the ocean. We can’t wait to return! The owner is very nice and easy to work. with. Highly recommend!!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Often VRBO rentals look great online, but when you get there, it's not quite a nice/big/fancy/etc. as the photos led you to believe. Not this one. We just pried ourselves out of this wonderful condo after 10 blissful days & nights and could not be happier about the place.

The bedroom is not waterfront, but it is air-conditioned so my wife and I slept great, and the kids on the pull-out could leave the large sliding glass door open (2nd floor) and enjoy cool ocean breezes and crashing waves all night long. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals and the shared BBQs are very nice and cleaned spotlessly every day. The large heated pool is 20 feet away on one side and the turtle-occupied beach is 20 feet the other. The deck is spacious and plenty of room for everyone to dine together - even if a little Maui Liquid Sunshine should fall, it is covered so everyone stays dry. Very responsive and accommodating owner. HIGHLY recommend.

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.
