My wife and I stayed at this condo community for our 10-year wedding anniversary in September of 2013. The condo was spacious, clean, well lit and within almost spitting distance to the ocean. Beautiful views of Lanai and Molokai, not to mention the sunset each night. The beach is ok, but nothing really to brag about. The pool is very...

Mahalo for staying with us at the Kulakane! It is wonderful to be oceanfront and so close to great restaurants, shopping, snorkel spots, and other activities of all kinds. The sounds of the neighborhood are occasionally noticable to our guests, but we are glad that you still had a wonderful stay. Hope to see you back again soon!!

My boyfriend and I stayed in #109, clean updated condo on the ground floor, right out front of the pool. The grounds are really clean, the people that live here have pride of ownership. If your looking for a complex that is quiet, relaxing, where you can hear the ocean outside your door and without the hustle and bustle, this...

Mahalo for staying with us! Yes the honu (turtles) love to swim and feed in front of the Kulakane, especially in the afternoons. We love that! Yes, summer afternoons can be warm as the afternoon sun sets over West Maui. Like most properties in West Maui, the Kulakane is cooled by the trade winds that blow through the vacation homes...

We stayed for a week in July 2013. Unit 306. Great. Two bedrooms. Dual level. Quiet. Ocean 60 feet away. Best views. Grounds are wonderful. Sandy beach in front and directly north as well. Many turtles close by. In fact, they will run you over in the water. Watch out! :) Low density, old Hawaii feel. I have stayed at...

Great condo (Unit 302) and offered the best turtle sightings on the Island and sunset views! The location is fabulous: close to Lahaina town and other great areas but also less commercial, more quite area! The condo was well equipped and very comfortable. The farmer's market was a great place to buy groceries and prepared food. One of our daughter's...

We are so glad you had a wonderful time! We love the views and our neighborhood turtles, also. The neighborhood roosters are part of life throughout the Hawaiian islands and they do have a certain charm! Mahalo for staying with us and we hope to see you back again!

North Kaanapali - could walk to everything we needed and a really short drive to Lahaina for anything else. Everything in 202 was brand new and top quality. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated unit, and greatly appreciated the snorkeling gear, boogie board, and beach chairs that were included with the rental. The views of Molokai and Lanai were breathtaking, and...

Mahalo for staying with us! Glad you enjoyed the great location. The turtles always make their appearance right in front of the property. All of our units are equipped with beach gear so you just bring your swimsuit and the aloha spirit. Hope we see you back at the Kulakane soon!

My friend and I looked at a lot of condos online and called several places before we agreed on the Kulakane. It had everything we wanted - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a lanai facing the ocean, walking distance to a farmers' market/vegan/vegetarian food place (that was key for me), parking, wifi, complimentary beach towels/beach chairs/beach bags (it's great not to...

So glad to hear you had a great trip, and mahalo for the great review! Thanks for confirming that we are indeed oceanfront - it would be impossible to be closer to the water. Our neighborhood honu (turtles) are always there to greet our guests! We hope to see you back at the Kulakane very soon.

We loved the Kulakane Condos. 42 units make it a quite place to hang out. The people are great, especially Debbie and Kathy who work in the office.

The Kulakane is a 70's era condo that sits right on the water. The newer resorts on Maui are not close to the water. The rooms of these newer resorts are even further back. Not the Kulakane. You could toss a dried palm frond from your lanai and hit the water from any room. A little dated but very clean...

Mahalo for the review and visiting with us!! One of the most frequent questions we hear is from potential guests wondering how close we REALLY are to the ocean.
