I had a great experience at this resort. The general manager Ronn Kobely was super helpful and friendly. He set us up with a great room, lower level beach side. We walked out our linai and there was the beach. We were scheduled to go on a tour the day of towel exchange and he already knew and had towels... More

I am currently sitting in room 320 -- it has been 90 and although we were told there was air conditioning there is none. There has been NO remodeling done to this condo unless it was a while back. It may be let's say 700 square feet. My master bedroom at my home is bigger than the entire condo. We... More

This resort is so well appointed and in an excellent location, I will be back! We had a room on shore front and first level which I would highly recommend, close to the beach with a bit more privacy. There was a group of us staying there so I got to see other units and hear feedback from the others... More

We spent a week in unit #708 (waterfront)at the Kuleana Resort. We booked through VRBO which was a hassle free experience. The resort itself is immaculate. The grounds are unbelievable. The condo we stayed in was recently remodeled and it was wonderful. We were on the ground floor and the beach was right outside our patio. A large tree provided... More

This property is all about location, location, location. It is arguably the closest to the water on Maui. True "beachfront", centrally located in West Maui, you have great ocean views of both Molokai and Lanai islands, which add much interest instead of a blank horizon. The condo is small, fine for a couple, no more. There is a A/C "window"... More

We stayed at this older property for a week in May 2014. The location couldn't be better. Our lanai was literally about 20 yards from the water. We enjoyed sitting out there and watching turtles and even a few straggler whales (most of them are gone this late in the year). Even though the property is older it is clean... More

This is our first time to Maui and we picked the Kuleana from the photos. We were very impressed with how well maintained the gardens, pool and BBQ area are. They clean the BBQ's every morning. The beach here is small, but we found that not to be much of a problem since there were not a lot of people.... More

The Kuleana Resort was our first taste of Maui living, and it was memorable. The grounds are everything you are picturing "Hawaii" to look like, so many flowers, trees, birds, gechos to see right outside your lanai. We were there during the "baby whale" season, so saw more whale "breaches" and "tail slapping" than you could imagine. The condo is... More
