This TS we exchanged to had no AC, which now we know in August was hot most of the time. In afternoon , sun shown into room and was unbearable, so that is a good time to go on activities, cause you cannot rest in the unit at all. At a few times we would put the included portable fan...

We spent August 5th thru 12th at the Kuleana Resort in Maui. Ron in the timeshare office was very welcoming and made our check-in a breeze. The resort is located along a particularly lovely section of the west Maui coastline with views of the islands of Molokai and Lanai. It's close to many attractions such as the wharf and Front...

This condo was fantastic. We stayed on the bottom floor that allowed us to have easy beach access and a ocean view. Easy access to downtown and other attractions. The beach was beautiful and there are turtles there everyday. We were able to snorkel with them and take pictures of them when they came up on the beach. We can't...

Do some grilling by the ocean while watching the turtles and soaking in sunsets. Bonus-your own little beach for snorkeling. The beautiful pool is soooo clean and is heated!!! It's what a vacation should...

Kuleana is a great place to spend a week. We had a one-bedroom unit that also had a nice Murphy bed in the living room. The beds were very comfortable. The View was fantastic. The room could have used a little deep cleaning.

This is the second stay here for us and enjoyed it immensely. The resort is small enough so you don't have overcrowding on the beach and is very close to everywhere you need to go. Everyone is very friendly and quite a few people live there year round. Well equipped kitchens and 4 gas grills to cookout. The beach may...

I stayed at Kuleana after having some major surgery in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The location is fantastic...a short drive to Kaanapali or Kapalua with a market right down the street. Old Town Lahaina was less than 10 minutes away, and Kihei and Wailea, less than an hour. The complex had everything I wanted...great pool, BBQs...even a ladder...

It was hard to narrow down what condo we wanted with so many complexes in West Maui but we were glad that we chose this one. It had a large pool, was quiet, had a nice beach, grills, and killer views. If you're looking for more of a full service tourist resort, or something that has water slides for the...

We have been coming to this wonderful resort for over 20 years. We love the location and the ambience. Turtles are out front most of the day. Small beach but good beach just south of the complex. Wonderful pool area. AC in all bedrooms. Great staff on site. Great value!!!!!
