Mahalo (thank you) for staying with us at the Kulakane. We are sorry to hear that your unit at the Kulakane did not meet your expectations. We followed up with our rental manager, Debbie, but she was not told of any concerns regarding the unit. Each unit is individually owned and uniquely furnished, and if Debbie is made aware of...

The view from this resort is amazing and breathtaking. Love the fact that it is walking distances to small local market and shops. Any issue with my room they sent out someone right away. Very friendly staff and it's family own. Highly recommend.. P.S. the bed is very conformable.

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.
