About Kerry and Lynne Nugent
Although we live in the Gold Country of Northern California, we have always thought of Maui as our second home. We met online in 2000 and were married on Maui in 2001, but we're still on our honeymoon. We have three children between us and three precious grandchildren, all of whom live in Northern California. Although not retired, we plan to work less and play more, so what is a better place to do that than on Maui. As an expat from Canada, I have met many Canadians who own property at the Kuleana resort or choose to rent here for their holidays. As relatively new vacation rental owners, we look forward to developing more friendships with guests from around the world who share our passion for this tropical paradise.
Kerry and Lynne Nugent purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Kerry and Lynne Nugent chose Lahaina
After a wonderful wedding in Makena, we returned to Maui each October for our anniversary and stayed at a wide variety of complexes and locations on this beautiful island (all rented through VRBO). In 2011, after our youngest daughter was off to college, we rented this unit at Kuleana and immediately fell in love with everything about this property. When we were not able to rent this unit in October, 2012, we rented the condo next door. During our stay, we learned that this unit was in foreclosure and saw this as a sign. We proceeded to purchase this property from the bank and had the opportunity to modernize, furnish and decorate it as our second home. Since we will only be on Maui for 9-12 weeks a year, we wanted to share our wonderful second home with relatives, friends and others who want to experience the best that paradise has to offer.
What makes this Condo unique
Although this condo is ideal for couples, we added a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper for couples with one or two children. Unlike the high priced hotels on Maui, this condo offers a home away from home feeling in a more private setting with all the luxuries you could want while vacationing in paradise. We don't consider this condo a rental, but rather our second home that we wish to share with family, friends and special guests who appreciate a comfortable place to call home while enjoying all of the wonders the island of Maui has to offer. The Kuleana resort is ideally situated in Kahana on the northwest side of Maui, with easy access to great restaurants, championship golf and ocean sports from Lahaina a few miles to the south to Kapalua a few miles to the north. We recommend a rental car while on Maui (with free parking at Kuleana) to take advantage of all the beautiful drives and destinations (as detailed in the guide in our condo) on this tropical island paradise.

Paradise is right!
Delightfully relaxing, can’t ask for a better water location to do some snorkeling , paddle boarding (we bring our own) and boogie boarding! Kerry and Lynne are wonderful hosts, quick to communicate and eager to share their suggestions in a terrific binder they’ve put together, full of information. We’ll be back, Mahalo!
Great stay in Lahaina!
We had a great stay in Lahaina! The property was very clean and the beach was fantastic! Ted was great to work with! He was very prompt in answering all of our questions.
Paradise from your patio!!
From the moment we walked out on the patio, we knew this was going to be our best vacation yet! Gorgeous sunsets, private beach front, snorkeling with the Giant Sea Turtles, did I mention the gorgeous sunsets? Kerry & Lynn allowed us to rent their beautiful condo on this beautiful island and we are grateful. There was a small matter at check in that Kerry & Lynn were QUICK to remedy from long distance. Great Hosts. Condo was very nicely furnished with all the accommodations you would need and not expect from a rental ie: blender for cocktails at sunset each evening.
We will definitely call Kerry & Lynn for our next trip to Maui !
Very nice home
We had a great time and place was clean and had everything we needed
This condo is in an absolutely perfect location. The waterfront setting is breathtaking and it is within minutes of fabulous restaurants and shopping. We plan to return next year.
Enjoy watching whales, turtles and dolphins while sitting on the lanai with a view of Lana'i, Moloka'i and Oahu or relax on the beach under the monkeypod tree 40 feet from the lanai. Located between Lahaina and Kapalua, the Kuleana resort is ideally located close to world renowned golf, restaurants and water activities. A guide to local activities, day trips and restaurants is provided in our condo, based on our experiences over the past 12 years, with activities divided into relaxed, active or extreme and restaurants classified by price (all highly recommended). When staying at the resort to relax by the heated olympic size pool or on the beach, we recommend lunch or dinner from the Okazuya Deli a few block away, where you can get excellent meals at reasonable prices and enjoy them on the lanai. We also recommend a visit to the Farmers Market just down the road every Mon-Wed-Fri morning for fresh papayas, mangoes, coconuts, pineapples and apple bananas.
