We enjoyed our vacation immensely. The condo was very well stocked, from the dishes to the beach gear. Parking was readily available. The location is handy for shopping and for getting around in general. Leanne responded quickly when we had a question. The unit was as advertised and we were happy to call it home while we were in Maui. Thanks!

We spent seven nights here in mid July and our family fell in love with the area. We came trying to escape the heat from Texas and this place was wonderful! It is fully stocked with four beach towels, sand toys, snorkeling equipment, two beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler. They really thought of everything as there is a first aid kit, and a few other necessities such as batteries and toddler cutlery and place settings. My four and seven year old kids loved the grassy area to run on after a day at the beach. We loved walking on the beach in the early morning before the tide came in to search for shells. We'd walk to the Farmer's Market and pick up fresh Acai bowls and things for lunch. I will say the beach right off of this condo is not suitable for a day of sitting out...the tide just comes in too close. But just down the road was our favorite public beach. We tried out many, but kept coming back to Nepali Beach as it was perfect for snorkeling, sand castle building, and boogie boarding. From our condo we could see sea turtles and eels and enjoyed having every meal out on the lanai. This place held many wonderful memories our little family will carry with us forever. Maui is magical and so is this place!

We had a wonderful week at Makani Sands 106! The weather was in the low 80's and just what we needed to escape rainy Washington state. The unit has EVERYTHING you could possibly need for a relaxing oceanfront vacation. The furnishings were modern and very comfortable. There were three of us and the third adult slept in the living room. He got to listen to the sound of the waves breaking all night and loved it. Even though it was late in the season we saw a whale one day. There were turtles everyday and a real highlight was watching a three foot long Moray Eel hunt and trap small fish right by the rocks next to the sand. We ate on the patio and used the barbeque, met all kinds of wonderful people who either lived there all the time or were other guests. We will be staying here again for sure!

This is the absolute best place to stay. This is our fourth trip to Maui but the first time staying here. Wake up and look or walk out to the ocean was the best. If we are lucky enough to visit again this will be the place and unit I will be looking to book first. Unit 106 was very clean and the king bed was so comfortable. There is new patio furniture than what is pictured, again very nice. No air conditioning but was no problem, ceiling and floor fans kept us comfortable.

This was our 4th trip to Maui and our first time at this condo. My goal was to rent where I could hear the ocean and this unit did not disappoint. We loved being able to sit on our lanai and watch the whales while eating our meals. The condo had everything you could possibly need! The only thing that prevented a 5 star rating was the lack of ac and the sliding door to the lanai was difficult to slide. Other than those small things, our stay was wonderful and quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

We came hastily, fleeing the creeping Seattle darkness. We found a slice of paradise. Ocean waves rocking us to sleep every night from the Makani Sands' private beach. Sun-drenched breakfast every morning on the lanai looking out across the water. At night, the turtles come. Minutes to beaches of every description, from ultra tourist Ka'napali to secluded Slaughterhouse Beach to peaceful Kapalua. At night, a short distance to the galleries and shops of Lahaina and walking distance to a supermarket open until 2AM. We celebrated Halloween among revelers beaming Hawaiian cheer from billowing jellyfish costumes. We just couldn't bear to leave. In fact, the last day, we left a piece of ourselves behind. As in, we lost something. The team working with this fantastic place found it and had started the process to return all our lost items before we boarded the plane. Spend your time here. Book now and don't look back.

Very clean, updated condo. The king size bed was a bit too soft for our liking but everyone has different needs. There was lots of supplies for any activity you were interested in pursuing. My only suggestion would be for the patio furniture to be updated or at the very least to have the cushions replaced. We ate most of our meals on the lanai and the chairs were not very comfortable.

We spent our 2016 in this condo. It was nicely organized and we appreciated how close the pool and the ocean were for us. We loved falling asleep to the waves. This condo had everything and was extremely well organized. We never used the inside dining table and ate out side everyday. It was an enjoyable experience . Bert the maintance dude was super friendly and the Christmas gift outside our front door was very generous and sweet. Bad Ass coffee was a bonus favourite for my husband every morning became a ritual for a family walk. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Aloha! We loved this condo! Nicest place we have ever stayed at. We really appreciated all the little details and effort taken to give us all the comforts of home. The owners really thought about everything from fresh new sponge, a cooler for day trips, games, beach equipment and more. It was fantastic! We could not have ad a more perfect honeymoon and suite. The beach in front of our room was the cherry on top. We found some great snorkel spots on the beach and were visited by turtles everyday. Some of our fav memories were: 1) Road to Hana-swimming in water falls, The bamboo forest, rainforests and blacksand beach 2)Snorkeling everyday! 3) Swimming on the private beach of Makani Sands 4) Fav Restaurant was Sangrita-Best Mexican good we have ever had and just 15 mins from the condo! Overall, we had the best time and this confo makes it really hard to say goodbye to Hawaii. Thanks for the memories :) -Saurabh & Prachi, Toronto, Canada

This condo was absolutely perfect! My husband and I came to Hawaii for a conference on Oahu and decided to extend our stay in Maui. I found this place online and fell in love with it. I was so excited that it was a ground floor unit right on the ocean with amazing views, a sandy beach, and upgraded interior. I was not disappointed in the least when we arrived. Everything was beautifully decorated, there was snorkel gear, beach towels, coolers and everything we needed for our Maui adventures. This place hit everything on my list and I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay here. I especially enjoyed seeing a sea turtle on the beach. The in-house attendants were so friendly, the nearby Farmer's market and coffee house a delight, and the entire area had a laid back atmosphere. I would definitely come back to stay at this particular condo again. I wish I had planned to stay here longer as I really enjoyed everything about the island and the condo. Mahalo!

My wife and I really liked this condo. The unit is very clean and nice. We loved the beach front access that was just steps away from the door. The beach is not huge but it is a beach and easily accessible for a quick swim in the ocean. We also loved watching the turtles in the morning that would come swimming in and play near the rocks. We saw some nights they would go on to the beach but we missed seeing them. Everything is marked in the unit so you know where things go or where things should be. The bed was a little too soft for my liking because of my back but it was tolerable. My wife and I wished there were more air conditioning options. There is not an A/C in the unit. While at times we could get a breeze by opening the bedroom window and living room sliding door we often could not feel a breeze. By the end of the trip we had all the fans going just to stay cool. An in unit A/C would be really nice. The condo is close to a super market so you don't need to stop at Walmart near the airport for food. Just wait and shop at the store nearby. We also loved how close it was to Lahaina which is by the far the best place to work around and shop and eat. We also found that West Maui had lots of fun places to see so staying here made it easy to get to all of those places (vs the road to Hana which has all the other cool places to see but is a drive). I'd recommend this condo to any of my friends who were thinking of staying in Maui.

We had the most fantastic 10 day vacation. We wanted to stay in a condo so we could cook our own meals and make our own drinks. This place delivered. They had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Not to mention your 20 steps to the water. We saw turtles everyday and the snorkeling was better than going to molokini. Bert the grounds keeperror was awesome as well he made sure we had a great time and let us use his paddle boards. We were so happy with everything we wanted to stay longer. The only draw back was the bedroom. I would suggest getting a darker shade for the window sleeping at night there was a lot of light that came through the shade that's on the window. Kept us up most the night.

We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Makani Sands - it is a wonderful location for snorkeling and seeing the turtles is such a special experience. For our future guests, we have modified the angle on the light from outside to make sure the light is not coming through the window and are investigating a darker shade. Please come back and visit us again.

Mahalo Makani Sands for providing a perfect home base during our Maui vacation. Situated on a private spot of beach between major vacation resorts and pointedly decorated inside & with toys for outside play, this vacation rental had it all. We could come and go as we pleased walking to most spots due to the condo's proximity and because of the amenities we ended up spending down time at the condo too! Our Maui vacation was tremendous.

Our vacation and accomodations at Makani Sands #106 was by far the best ever! We like to get out of town during the holidays and just forget and relax. Maui is our place to do just that. This place did it for us! Every day in the water, snorkeling is my fav thing to do. The condo has everything we need and more. Bert the caretaker was so friendly and helpful and Leanna was the best! We couldn't get tv reception in the living room and she went way over and above to help us with this. We were so thankful for her help. Thanks for a great 2015 vacation and we hope to return soon.

Built in the same era as many of the Honokawai and Kahana condos, the ocean view is great. We had everything in the kitchen and furnishings we needed to entertain a small gathering (6-8 persons) to show off our new grand daughter, except parking spaces. We only gathered once so that we would not be upsetting the site manager who was gracious but had no choice but to shepard every parking space, as there was only one available per unit.
