Pukalani Reviews

What I like about Pukalani is the views you get of Downtown Maui. What I also like is the isolation from the "city" life but still have access to places like grocery stores, doctors, restaurants, banks, night life, etc. I would not change anything about Pukalani but sidewalks where there are none would be a nice improvement.
