We are excited to share our corner of paradise with you! This 1 br/1 ba, updated condo is OCEANFRONT; there's nothing between you and the water, sand, turtles, and great snorkeling that are just about 40 feet from the lanai. It is a 180 degree perfect ocean view!! The first floor location means you walk directly out to the pool area, bbq grills, and Maui's warm waters. The offshore reef keeps the strong surf at bay and makes the water here like a big, warm, turtle-filled bathtub. We absolutely love it and know you will, too.
The condo features an updated granite and tile bath, maple cabinets, polished slate floors, ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, contemporary furniture and appliances, and free Wi-Fi. This is a non-smoking condo complex, even outside on the lanais, so you are guaranteed a smoke-free environment (this is not the case at most condos).
We've stayed in Maui for many years, and been at many of the big resorts, but there is nothing like having your own private home that is just steps from the water - no parking fees, resort fees, hiking through miles of hallways, and legions of people everywhere!! No thanks! We'll take west Maui's quiet, small-town atmosphere any day. Come once and we know you'll come back again.
This condo is perfect for a couple or a small family. The first floor walk-out location is so convenient when bringing groceries in and carrying your beach gear out. Most importantly, you can just walk straight out to the pool area and the ocean. There is no more oceanfront location than this one!!
Let us tell you a little bit about this vacation home. The living area has a flat-screen TV, DVD player, Ipod docking station, ceiling fan, and a comfortable sofa that pulls out to a queen size bed. The large sliding door opens directly onto your oceanfront lanai, which has a large round table and seating for 4.
The kitchen is completely equipped as any would be on the mainland. It has a 4-burner electric stove and oven (no natural gas in the islands, for obvious reasons), refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender, pineapple slicer, toaster, and all the gadgets you need to make your meals if you'd like. We also have a wonderful outdoor bbq kitchen on the property, complete with huge propane grills, prep area and prep sink, and herb garden that you're free to use. The kitchen has some pantry basics, too. If you buy anything else, feel free to leave it in the pantry for the next guest's enjoyment.
The updated bathroom has a tub/shower and granite tile vanity.
The bedroom as a king bed, ceiling fan, clock radio, dresser and nightstands, and a large closet with a safe. The closet is where you'll find the beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella, and sand toys for you to use during your stay.
One comment we hear from all our visitors is that "this place looks even better than the pictures". We are very proud of that. Guests are also surprised by the warmth of aloha spirit that is among the guests here. Don't be surprised if you find yourself chatting with other guests around the pool and making some new friends. We have enjoyed sharing wine and conversation with visitors from all over the world, many of whom come back to this property each year.
Summer and fall are great on Maui, where the weather is great and the water is warm all year 'round. Take advantage of our off-season special rate of $129 per night during the summer (June through August), plus the cleaning fee. Spring and summer months are $149. Our regular rate during peak season is $205, which is still a great price for an oceanfront home, where you can see the whales that come each winter to give birth and feed. Call or email us for more information, and we will be glad to help you plan your escape to paradise! I'm Heather, one of the owners, and I will personally answer your calls and emails.

Mahalo for staying with us, and for the review! Glad you liked our place. Our resident turtles are the best, maybe only second to the other friendly guests you're likely to meet. When we're on island we often just stick around the condo for the day and enjoy the sun, beach and view!!
As for the dogs barking, we apologize for that inconvenience. We find that closing the bedroom's louvered windows keeps any neighborhood noise out of the bedroom at night, and with the ceiling fan it stays nice and cool.
Again, Mahalo to you and we hope to see you back again!!

We stayed at the Kulakane for our 10 year anniversary and could not have loved it more! After many traveling mishaps (missed flight, lost luggage, shady rental car dude...I'll stop now), walking into the Kulakane felt like home, but better. The island decor is tasteful and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped and thoughtfully stocked with little necessities. The bedroom is spacious and comfortable and the linens are clean and high quality. The entire atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.The best feature of this little oasis is the proximity to the ocean...the pictures do not really show just how close you actually are to the water and sea life . This is true oceanfront property. We just opened the door to our lanai and stepped into paradise. Every morning we had coffee on the lanai and soaked up the scenery...amazing! We saw countless turtles and even a few whales. The surf is gentle here. One of our neighbors (an 85 year old superman) snorkeled a mile and a half out from the sea wall and said it was some of the best snorkeling ever! If you care to venture out and see more of Maui, the Kulakane is close to everything...great beaches/snorkeling, shopping, restaurants, shave ice and sightseeing (check out the owner's little book of suggested activities and places to eat. They know Maui, and it's a humorous read too). We have been to Maui several times, but this is our favorite area by far. It's tucked away from the busy resort/tourist areas, but just minutes away from Maui's main attractions. We highly recommend the Kulakane for anyone interested in a laid back, relaxed, ocean front vacation!
Mahalo Dena for the review! So many guests tell us the same thing....it's so much better than the pictures! Thank you for staying with us and we hope you can come back again very soon.

Mahalo (thank you) for the review! So glad you had a wonderful time. Now you know what it means to be truly oceanfront!! Hope you can come back and visit soon; maybe next time you can come during whale season, when you can sit on your lanai and watch the whales. Give us a call when you are ready and we'd love to have you back!
