Another great stay!
5/5 stars
We returned to Makani Sands unit 106 after discovering this clean and comfortable unit a few years ago and falling in love with it. It's got everything we need, in a great location and with extraordinary views and ambiance. We love it and will come back again for future stays!

Oceanfront Relaxation
5/5 stars
This condo's ground-floor location allows us to sit a few feet from the water's edge in the morning shade and afternoon sun, watching for whales and often seeing turtles right below us. The unit is comfortably furnished and well equipped for us (two, elderly adventurers) - assistance with water temp was prompt and lighting over the stovetop would help. The non-smoking policy and congenial neighbors are a plus, as are nearby shops, including Snorkel Bobs, coffee cafe, Farmers Market store and tasty takeout. A quaint church and two beach parks are a short walk away; Napili Kai and the Kapalua Coastal Trail are a short drive north. We felt relaxed and safe our entire stay and will strongly consider returning again to Makani Sands.

The BESSSSSSSSSSSSSST!
5/5 stars
We stayed 8 nights and had the best time. The condo was great, well-equipped with everything we needed and the view is a 10+ - the best place to watch the sunset every night is right out the back door. Each night we watched anywhere between 8-14 sea turtles feeding on the rocks right outside out room and countless fish as well. Snorkeling is fabulous here if the conditions are right. We highly recommend this condo and will definitely be back. THANK YOU!

Everything was fine and I did a full review for sent out by Air BnB. I would have only 2 minor items to bring to the attn of the owners of 106 that I did not have a opportunity to comment on in the other review: - entry door sticks at bottom, if they just took it off and shaved off 1/8 inch or so it would solve this minor inconvenience. - we didn't do much laundry, but on occasion we used dryer to try and dry out damp swimsuits and such at night. The dryer was quite funky - on occasions it would run normally, get hot and dry out what you wanted on the "normal" cycle. But often on the same cycle it would start, then turn off and on for 5 minute and stop and everything would still be cold and wet. We were never able to figure it out. Read Vaughan

The condo is well stocked with the basics and we enjoyed it so much. The air conditioning was so appreciated. I did not realize that most of the other units do not have AC. I love that it is on the 1st story. Right outside the condo we sat for hours to take in the turtle and whale sightings and the magnificent Maui sunsets! The next time we plan a Maui trip we are looking to stay here!

Very nice place and we enjoyed it! it was our first time in Hawaii and it's paradise. I have one complain and is that there were (a lot) of cockroaches. When we came back in the afternoons after of staying out for a couple of hours it was normal to see 4-5 cockroaches walking on the kitchen countertop. Most of the time when we opened the drawer to get some cutlery in the kitchen you can see cockroaches as well. I was an issue for my wife. Thanks

Mahalo Tommy for the review of Makani Sands 106. We are so glad you enjoyed your journey to Paradise. Burgs are a part of island life and the condo is sprayed regularly.

Paradise
5/5 stars
What can I say, Makani Sands has all the spirit of Aloha. Everyone around us was so amazing and welcoming. We even got invited to a celebration of life for a tenant that had recently passed away at 100 years old, what an honor. Every day we would wake up, go outside, have coffee and a danish from Costco and just sit at our our private beach for at least a half hour to start our day. Everything was exceptional, including proximity. I literally had to walk down like 6 steps to the beach and the next thing I know, I’m swimming with sea turtles. I have nothing bad to say about Makani Sands and everything good to say. I can’t wait to stay there again for our next trip to Maui! Mahalo

Great location!
5/5 stars
Great location, within walking distance of coffee and farmers market and short drive to restaurants, grocery store, and even an awesome food truck park! Condo had all basic necessities (minus any pantry items like cooking oil), but onsite property manager was having trouble reaching the owner about spraying for bugs as she received multiple complaints. We did see a few cockroaches. Amazing views! The whale watching was spectacular right from the back door, binoculars provided () we even made friends with curious birds. Despite the pictures, there is no beach access from the room, but you can get in the water. Small pool, but nice and warm. We had a great trip overall.

Maui Oceanfront
4/5 stars
Things I enjoyed about this condo: 1. Location was great! Very central to a lot of activities, restaurants, shopping. We did have a car (free parking was also a bonus), but enjoyed the local area. The bus stop was also right outside the building. 2. VIEW!! We were on the bottom floor, and walked out a few steps to be at the edge of the ocean where we watched numerous whales spouting, breeching, and playing. Amazing! (No beach at this time). 3. Outside area had a lot of seating options, including tables with chairs and recliners. There was also a nice BBQ area. The grounds were nicely maintained. 4. Inside: tons of storage in the well-stocked kitchen, with plenty of dishes, glasses, cookware, etc. Great for a long term stay. 5. Really liked the indoor high-top table for evening cards, games, meals. 6. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, dish and bath soap, etc. We had a relatively short stay (only 5 nights), but were happy that we had plenty of "essentials" to last. 7. Appreciated the beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. 8. Clear, easy check-in and out instructions. 9. VERY friendly array of guests in other units. Nice to meet fellow travelers. Things I enjoyed less: 1. Wish a luggage rack or two were available, as we had to use the dresser top and floors. 2. Wish a couple of extra blankets had been available. We did ask at the main desk, but they couldn't supply any. 3. Almost hate to mention this, but there was a definite cockroach issue. I know the tropics are prone to them, but they were very visible and active. We could not comfortably leave any unsealed food products on the counters.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The condo has great upgrades and all the beach supplies to enjoy the ocean just a few steps from the patio. You can walk to shopping and Kaanapali.

Almost Perfect Stay
3/5 stars
We stayed at the Makani Sands 106. The view was amazing. We ate breakfast and dinner every night outside by the water and it was amazing. We saw sea turtles right outside our unit in the water. Unfortunately, the one downside of our unit was the ants. The kitchen counter was covered in them to the point that we couldn't do any of our cooking prep work on the counter because then the ants would get into all our food. We contacted iTrip and they sent over the next day someone to take care of the ants, unfortunately it did not help. But otherwise, it was a great stay.
- Ann

Mahalo for the review of Makani Sands 106. We are so pleased you enjoyed the view, the lanai and saw sea turtles during your stay! We do apologize for the ant issue and are sorry were were not able to rectify the situation (units are sprayed on a regular basis). Aloha! iTrip Maui (Ohana)

Unit 106
5/5 stars
Everything there was very nice and clean. Kitchen modern, bed comfortable, great to be on the first floor and just walk out to the lanai for breakfast. Two downsides: No keys so even though they came by and were suppose to bring them, had to go into the lock box every time to open the door as they never brought any copies. Also need to update the snorkel gear if you are going to leave it for guests. Worn out, broken straps, dated. Also, maybe a beach umbrella to take out would be nice too. Otherwise, very nice and reasonable place.

Acquired Taste
3/5 stars
We stayed in this property for 9 nights. Like with any rental property, there are pros and cons. It is up to the individual to decide whether the pros outweigh the cons. Pros: Beautiful ocean view and nice kitchen with adequate supplies. The outdoor dining table in the back patio was a bonus as we ate almost all our meals there and enjoyed the views in the morning and during sunset. The locals had this cool tradition that they blow of the seashell right at sunset and wish everyone an “Aloha!” Cool experience. Also appreciated that the property manager provided the missing items that we requested (additional towels, cutting board, soap/shampoo). Cons: There is no A/C in this property and the fans did not help much. The water pressure in the shower was ridiculous, plan on spending an hour under the weak shower head. The master bedroom is noisy due to several facts: ground floor property with foot traffic that you can hear since the “windows” don’t buffer any sound. There was construction taking place at 8 pm at the unit next door. This is not something that could be controlled but it was not appreciated at night. Takeaway Message: This was a decent property for a one time visit, and we felt it was satisfactory for our purposes. Just keep in mind that the beauty of Maui is not based on where you sleep, but based on where you visit and the experiences you have outside the property. Mahalo!

This was our first vacation using iTrip and they were THE BEST! We have already recommended their services to several friends and colleagues. Leanna is so attentive, knowledgeable and helpful, even sending the Wifi password in the middle of the night (!) so we were ready to work/school upon our arrival. We spent a month in unit 106 at the Makani Sands and it exceeded our expectations. It was the best work/vacation we've ever had and was well equipped with everything we needed to live and play comfortably for the month. It's close to restaurants, groceries and lots of island activities. The beach just step off the lanai did not disappoint with regular visits by turtles and even some dolphins and two whale sightings at the end of our stay (Nov. 30). Already looking forward to our return!!

Turtles Everyday!
5/5 stars
Aloha All! Let me just say that Makani Sands suite 106 is awesome! My family of 4 absolutely loved this place, it really made you feel like you were living in Maui. The newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom fully stocked and labeled with all the kitchen appliances, utensils, and extras were great!! We stopped at Costco,” right next to the airport” when we landed and gathered up milk, eggs , water and snacks for our week long stay. The Farmers Market and BadAss coffee shop was a 5 minute walk that we did almost everyday to get ice coffee and stuff we made for most of our breakfast, lunch and dinners. This time of year there’s a good amount of sand on your on lil private beach and we were fortunate to have a family of turtles that hung out in the water everyday mostly in the morning and evening. Dinner on the patio watching the sunset and swimming in the ocean right out your back door!! My two daughters 7 & 9 absolutely LOVED this place. Mahalo Makani Sands for making this trip one to remember! We will recommend this place to everyone and we will be back in the future for sure! Mahalo, The Vincent Family Carlsbad, CA

Makani Sands Condo
3/5 stars
Kind of an older condo but in decent shape. Dryer didn't work very well and shower faucet handle was very loose making it hard to regulate water temperature. The condo was stocked with everything we needed except for a bottle opener! ITrip was very responsive to any phone call. This condo did not have air conditioning and we were very disappointed with this. We did not think anyplace in Hawaii would not have A/C even if it wasn't listed on the amenities. This condo was right on the water as advertised and the freebies included are fabulous. This more than made up for the minor disappointments we had.

Wonderful Getaway for A Family of Four!
5/5 stars
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!

Beautiful Maui 2018
5/5 stars
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 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!

Your own personal slice of paradise
5/5 stars
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.

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.

Great place, ocean right outside your lanai. Sea turtles everyday, nice beach, great swimming and snorkeling. The only drawback is that when the Tradewinds go down it gets pretty warm and humid in the unit at night.

Honeymoon at Makani Sands!
5/5 stars
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

Wonderful Stay!
5/5 stars
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!

Fabulous stay in Maui
5/5 stars
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.

Great Vacation
5/5 stars
Makhani Sands was a great place to stay for our Maui vacation. Close to everything we needed and places we were going. The unit was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The added bonus of the sound of the waves and beautiful views, including a.m. rainbows was fabulous!!

Outstanding trip
5/5 stars
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
5/5 stars
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. Mahalo Makani Sands!!

Our stay in Maui
5/5 stars
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. Sincerely, Keith and Belinda

Fantastic view, tough to entertain guests
4/5 stars
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.
