    a guest from Greenbrae, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The condo is just right for those looking for mid-range property. It is right on the beach, where some regular turtles visit (Tripod - with three legs, VW - due to the shape of his shell, and a third unnamed one). The outside of the condo (the rear) looks dated, but the inside is quite nice. There is a decent beach in the front, but the water does get a little choppier in the afternoon. Still decent snorkeling in the mornings as there is also a reef right in front (probably why the turtles like to hang out here). The condo was very clean and well taken care of.
    The AC is in the top rear bedroom, so best to turn it off at night as it hums otherwise.

    There is a lanai off the top bedroom as well as the living room. Given the sun exposure, you will likely have to close the drapes in the late afternoon.
    The property is less than a mile away from a small organic grocery store and park.
    You also have kayaks, boogie boards and surf boards to use. The condo had beach chairs and an umbrella for use as well.

    The location is fantastic, particularly access to the beach/ocean to see the turtles. The maintenance of the unit was a bit lacking and in need of repair/upgrading in certain cases. Those issues were noted in the questionnaire left with management. That being said, it was a nice unit overall. The beach chairs, towels and boards that were available were much appreciated.

    Debra F from Glendale, AZ recommends this vacation rental

    This is our second visit to Maui within the past 12 months and we absolutely loved our stay in Unit 301 at Makani Sands !! The location is beyond perfect, with a beach/oceanfront, double lanai condo set it the midst of west Maui's little beach community just north of Kaanapali and south of Kahana. The condo unit is a small one which makes for a more intimate setting. Older, yes.....but in pretty good shape considering. Many upgrades in unit 301 and plenty of room for our 6 guests for the week with three bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths. The property manager, Burt, was beyond hospitable and friendly. We are not sure when we will be returning to Maui, but when we do, we know exactly where we will be staying.

    We enjoyed our stay, wish we could have stayed longer.

    The only negative comment we have is that the grills close at 9. This means they turn the gas off 9pm sharp. It was cold and raining so it took a long time for us to cook, but we were braving it with umbrellas. Our food was not cooked and we had to move everything inside to finish up in the kitchen.

    Carly D from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here for 10 nights with 4 adults and 2 children. We all felt like we had plenty of space and were comfortable. Very clean condo and the views of the ocean are insanely gorgeous. I felt like I needed to be pinched every morning to remind me it wasn't a dream. The only down side to this condo is the noise in the second master. The AC unit powering on and off and the constant street noise left us without much sleep. But we have 2 young kids and are used to sleepless nights. And to be fair, I don't think this issue is really "fixable" by the owner or management so I would recommend ear plugs for sure in that room. But honestly overall, it was amazing. We would definitely stay again! Oh and a special shout out to Bert - who was so wonderful and kind throughout our stay!

    We had an enjoyable stay in Maui. We had pretty good weather while we were there. Initially we had serious problems with the air conditioning which was not working. The staff was able to get the air working after approximately 24 hours and it was fine after that. It made our first 24 hours very uncomfortable. We were happy with the unit that we stayed in. The carpets are a little rough and should be replaced, but generally the unit was clean and had everything we needed. The beach was awesome. We would definitely recommend this location.

    We stayed in Unit 301 which was a little dated, but the setting was stunning. Sitting out on the deck you look out to the sea, private sandy beach and the immaculate garden/lawn. The sunsets were awesome. We were a family of 5 adults and the unit had plenty of room for us all. After we had left we realized that we had left some clothes in the dryer. The property manager was great, she got a quote for posting it to our next location and organised the delivery. Location was great. The neighborhood has lots of places to shop nearby, with super markets, and smaller take out restaurants. For the price I would highly recommend this place for a group like ours.

    We had a party of 6 stay in unit #301 from July 15-22, 2016. Upon arrival this property was just as described online. The views are amazing and so much better than the pictures online. You can't get much closer to the water! We loved that we were close to everything but without all the crowds. Our favorite thing was waiting for night to come and having the Sea Turtles come rest right on the beach. Amazing! The staff on site are very helpful with anything you need. We will definitely be back to this great property!

    a guest from Boise, ID recommends this vacation rental

    What a great place to stay for our extended family vacation. Most always we had the beach in the back to ourselves with turtle swimming by every day. They love to sneak up on you so you will jump as they swim calmly past you. Our four-year-old grandson loved the calmness, most times, of the waves in the morning and swimming in the pool late afternoon. Our son and son-in-law learned to blow the conch shells, graciously provided, at sundown. The condo was very comfortable for the seven of us and was located half way from shopping on the south and a wonderful snorkeling and child safe beach on the north. The managers were on vacation (where do you go for a vacation when you live in Hawaii?). The fill-in folks did a great job and we always got our questions answered. Family is already talking about returning and we definitely will.

    Great location & view. Partially updated condo. Kitchen has been updated, but is tiny. Very tight spaces. Living area is small. 1 downstairs bedroom, but only powder bath on first floor & other two baths are en suite, making it a bit awkward. Beautiful grounds, but building feels dated & was under construction. AC is partial at best. Two bedrooms have only screens (no windows) & are not sound-proof. Had it not had a view, we would have been very disappointed.

    My family and I enjoyed our time at the Makani Sands.
    Kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, knives, cookware and ice.
    Use of a washer and dryer available, since we had 3 small children was great.
    Outside maintenance was very good, Bert was always busy doing something to beautify the place and he was very friendly and accomodating.
    We had some issues with insects (ants) in the kitchen, important to put foods in the fridge or plastic.
    BBQs were very clean and all the tenants shared them in a timely manner.

    View from the lanai for whale watching was fantastic.

    Morgan W from Anchorage, AK recommends this vacation rental

    This was my 4th time staying at Makani Sands. The location is very private, beach is great for snorkeling. It's quiet, pool is nice, close parking, gorgeous views. I have always been very pleased with the accommodations and condition of the condos. We have previously stayed in a 3 bd unit (#305) and 2 bd (#209). Both were remodeled and beautiful! Everything you could want, gorgeous kitchens, bathrooms. This time we stayed in 3bd unit (#301) because it was the only one available. It was the same price as #305, but the condition & finishes on the condo left much to be desired. For example the floors were warped, old/small kitchen, damaged/marked drywall, broken lanai door, old carpet, pin-nail tacked backsplash. It was acceptable, but I really don't think it should command the same rate as some of the other condos with granite, S/S appliances, updated bathrooms and recent remodels. We were there with a large party including small children, so the size & safety of the condo was the most important thing, it just wasn't up to my previously established expectations. Also, the manager was not on site 4 of the 5 times I looked for her during business hours, including check out. I didn't know what to do with our keys, etc... I ended up just putting them in the office mailbox and heading to the airport. I WOULD stay there again, but I would be VERY selective about which unit I chose in the future.

    The property is well maintained and has a beautiful view of the water where we were able to view whales and sea turtles from our balcony. The property is also within walking distance of several shopping centers, and a park. We stayed in Unit 301. This particular unit has all of the comforts of home, but is in need of a little updating( floors looked worn, had to put towels down because the rain came in from outside through the glass panel windows, sliding door lock held open by masking tape, etc.). With that being said, overall we had a wonderful time, and you can't beat the view from the condo balconies.

    Jim H from Cncinnati, OH recommends this vacation rental

    During July 2014 my family of nine people had a wonderful stay and accommodations at Makani Sands, units 301 and 210. This was my third visit to Maui and I have stayed at Makani Sands each time. The facility is located right on the beach, with private access to the beach and snorkeling for the guests and residents. The balconies face west, and we were treated to excellent sunset views each night. We also enjoyed (twice) using the gas BBQ grills to cook steaks and burgers. The grills are built into a very nice granite countertop configuration.
    After checking prices of nearby hotel rooms, my conclusion is you get a much better value by staying at Makani Sands since each unit has a fully equipped kitchen and private laundry facilities.
    I fully recommend Makani Sands Condos to anyone considering travel to West Maui. The town of Lahaina is only 6 miles to the south which offers great dining and shopping. There are also several excellent golf courses within a 5 mile radius including Kapalua.

    We stayed in unit 301 and it is very spacious and nice. It is hard to find a 3 bedroom unit to accommodate large families. The maintenance man Bert is awesome and he goes out of his way to offer you gear if they have it (usually left behind by previous guests like me!) I would check-in and talk to him before buying or renting anything. Bert is also very knowledgeable about the area, restaurants, etc. The location is great and the small beach access is awesome! You will see many Sea Turtles during your stay and its great for paddle boarding or just letting the kids play in the sand. The beach isn't great for snorkeling/surfing. The pool is a also an added benefit for all!
