Jack and Andee gave great instructions. They are very friendly, nice people. It was apparent that they wanted everything to be perfect for us.
This was our first time using Airbnb and we couldn't have had a better experience. Originally we were planning on staying at a resort but thankfully that fell through and we were lucky to find this gem of a place in Maui. Jack and Andee were incredible hosts. Communication with them was easy and they responded very quickly to our inquiry on the property. The location of the condo was definitely the overall highlight of our trip. We stayed for two weeks and didn't want to leave because it was just so great. The pictures of the condo are completely accurate. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The condominium has it's own private beach and it was amazing. Sea turtles and so many colorful fish are all over the place! Too good to be true. The condo was comfortable for the two of us. Fully stocked kitchen, dishwasher, stove, microwave, etc. They provide you with two beach towels and many bathroom towels. The bedroom of the condo has the AC and it works very well. We were located about 5 minutes from a local grocery store, 10 minutes from other resorts and about a 15 minute from Front Street which has lots of shops, restaurants, etc. Farmers Markets are up and down the main road along with little beaches. Staying here, you feel like a local. We were so spoiled to find such a great spot. We are definitely planning on staying here again for a future visit to Maui. Aloha!
Such a beautiful spot! Very calm and quiet. Close to everything (car required to get to town, 15/20 mins, but great organic store a short walk away). Jack and Andee have a real gem. Two mins to the ocean! We had some truly magical moments swimming with sea turtles!
It's a great place to stay in Maui. A beach with decent snorkeling in your backyard is hard to beat. I definitely recommend this condo. While the location may not be the most convenient for touristy things, we never regretted picking it (and we hit all the tourism spots as first timers to Maui). The condo has a great ocean&pool view and is conveniently located within the condo complex. No complaints, would go back tomorrow.
Kuleana 309 was a delightful place to spend a week in Maui. Our hosts provided detailed driving directions and useful information on the condo and surrounding area.
The unit was exactly as described and the pictures were accurate. We were very comfortable and relaxed. The view of the pool, ocean and sunset from the lanai was breathtaking. Very nice convenience to have a kitchen (well equipped) and washer/dryer. The furniture was comfortable and easy to relax on. The bedding was also comfortable. The unit has been updated. Beautiful new tile flooring, all new bathroom, and nicely updated kitchen.
Kuleana as a whole, was peaceful, laid back, relaxing. The grounds are well kept, pleasing to look at and walk through. The beach is a one minute walk and beautiful. We enjoyed watching the turtles frolic in the water. We even saw whales breaching way out in the ocean.
There are many conveniences nearby. We used the grocery store that's just a five minute drive away. We mostly did breakfast and lunch in the condo and had dinners out. We enjoyed a traditional luau at a nearby resort (there are many to choose from). The town of Lahaina is about fifteen minutes away. Lots of restaurants and shopping.
Thank you, Jack and Andee for the opportunity to stay at your Maui condo.
We truly enjoyed ourselves and would do it again.
This is a great spot just north of all the condos of Kanapali. We really liked that it is in a smaller complex. Right from our lanai we could see whales and down at the beach there were turtles in the rocks eating.
Very well maintained property.
The pool was huge and also very clean.
Sea was rough so didn't get in but it looked wonderful.
