My fiancé and I have stayed here two years in a row. Coming in May is the best time in my opinion. The living room is huge, bedroom is perfect size with a nice comfortable bed, the kitchen is perfect and equipped with everything you need to make meals. The view is amazing! The people you meet will stay long lasting friends for a life time. We will continue to visit The Kulakane every time we come to Maui. If I could give this place 100,000 stars 🌟 I would. If this room is for sale in the future I will buy it!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo, The Kulakane #310. The ocean views are breathtaking. Mornings, lounging with coffee in the open air lanai at the surfboard, whale watching, with Hawaiian music, set the tone each day. The panoramic view, enjoying cocktails at sunset cannot be beat. The amenities are plentiful, the bedding superb, and the fans moved the air, keeping the space comfortable. The shopping and restaurants are plentiful in the area, within a mile or two. It’s incredible what the owners have done here. Love, Love, Love It!! We can’t wait to return.
We have stayed in unit 307 many times. The views are beyond belief! You can see whales, dolphin, turtles, and an occasional ray all while sitting on your private lanai! It close to ABC stores, and a grocery store. Food trucks, and our favorite "Bad Ass Coffee". We are headed back in a few weeks and know the complex is under construction. We were sent notices before booking. It won't be the same, but we'll still love being there and can't wait to see it completed for our next visit. Last visit was May of 2021 and as always the place is clean and comfortable, well stocked. This is a third floor unit and has amazing views of Molokai and Lanaii. I can't wait to get back! We booked through Maui Paradise Properties and they were great to work with. We liked being able to check ourselves in with all the Covid worries.…
Unit 209 at The Kulakane. What a lovely spacious place. It is a great location with fabulous views of the ocean. Being on the second floor was great for letting in the sounds of the ocean yet still having privacy. It appears the unit has been mostly remodeled. Everything looks fresh, clean and modern. The queen bed was very comfortable plus there was a murphy bed in the family room for extra guests or for sleeping close to the ocean. The walk-in shower was wonderful. It was nice to have chairs to use at the numerous beaches close by. Nick and Ashley made great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. Debbie was very welcoming and helpful if we needed anything. Toni was spot on keeping the place nice looking all the time. We will definitely stay here again.
Went out and spent a week with my family at the Kulakane #209. The staff was so friendly with my kids and really made them feel at home the second we got there. I could not believe the views. The unit is just steps to the beach. Great look at the sunset from the patio every night. The unit itself was 2 units wide and the whole one side of the unit is all windows to take in all the views. The inside of the unit had been remodeled and felt so clean and comfortable. We would go back in a second! We had the time of our lives!
Have stayed in 309 and 209 and loved our amazing views from the lanai being right on the ocean. We watched whales from our lanai in January and sea turtles swim just past the seawall everyday. Each unit is individually owned so some are really updated and modern just got to pick the right units. Love the feel of the property. Good mix of owners, repeat guests, and new guests make the pool and common areas a real melting pot. Lots of new people coming to kulakane and it’s more family friendly then before. There is a small pool, lots of chairs and loungers to lay out and small beaches on each side of property. Great beach just down the road. Grocery store, restaurants and coffee shop within 1/4 mile. On site Managers Tony and Debbie are the best. These units Do not have ac but you don’t need it being ocean front with all the sliders and windows open 24/7 I wanted to feel the ocean breeze, lots of indoor / outdoor space from the living room to the lanai. Nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean 40 feet away. Washer and dryers down stairs, free parking and high speed Internet. Feels safe and comfortable here for me and my family.…
I wish location was enough. We are renting condo 213. Everything is very old and run down. The appliances are old and damaged. Television doesn’t work tried to call manager but no response. Small matter but the condo accommodation is for four and there are only two coffee cups. We rented unit 314 also for our kids which is very nice. Cannot recommend 213 . Have stayed at the Kulakane many years but this will be the last time.
I did a lot of research before booking at Kulakane. I wanted a small, quiet vacation renal complex, right on the beach with a full kitchen because I wanted to be able to cook meals. This fit the bill in every way without breaking the bank. I wasn't looking for luxury accommodations or resort amenities. I stayed in unit 207 and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. I had a full ocean view and my rental was literally steps from the beach so I was lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the waves. In the morning, after waking up to the sound of a rooster announcing the beginning of a new day, I ate breakfast on the lanai as I watched rainbows appear over the ocean. For me, it was the epitome of paradise. The location is convenient for exploring the island, but getting a rental car is a good idea. There was no AC but that didn't bother me. Fans kept it very comfortable. I don't usually stay at the same location twice, but I would definitely stay here again.…
The unit is not managed by the resort, but by Maui Paradise Properties . It has a beautiful- spectacular- view , but the afternoon sun and it’s glare can make the lanai uncomfortable. There were no cutting boards in the kitchen, but three were delivered the next day, after a phone call. No response from the managers for a broken screen door , a broken toaster, or for a change of towels during a 12 day trip. No washer/dryer in unit . Coin-op at office. No dining table in unit, although one was shown in the promotional photos, which made the unit look nicer than it is. No lighting on the lanai . TINY pool . Very good supply of coffee filters . As always, our family had a wonderful time in Hawaii.
Positives: the view, the view, and the view. The sound of the ocean and location. Negatives: there are too many negatives in this unit to even leave a list. I don’t consider myself an expert, but we have rented many places inside the US as well as abroad. This is not someone’s beloved home that they are sharing with you. This is someone’s Cash cow—do as little as possible, just enough to rent it out. The kitchen is so poorly equipped, It is even difficult to put together a simple meal. It is a mishmash of pots and pans and utensils many of which are not even useful. Any improvements since it was built have been kept to a bare minimum. You pay a cleaning fee but it is not clean. There are nice units for rent in this complex, but this is not one of them. Keep looking.
