    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our stay at Makani Sands so much! A great location - walking distance to a number of fantastic (and affordable, which is awesome in West Maui) eating spots and a cute beach park which our kids loved, and short drives to many other great beaches. The condo was well appointed, the pool great for our kids - shaded in the afternoon so perfect for an afternoon dip when you've spent the morning in the sun. The condo had everything we needed, including a bunch of beach and pool toys and beach chairs. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back. Oh, and the sea turtles! We saw them come up to the rocks pretty much every afternoon from our balconies. Such a treat.
    One note - from the photos it looks like there is a real beach in front of the building. There really isn't - it's a sea wall with mostly rocks, a tiny bit of sand, but except at very low tide the ocean is right up against the wall. You could still swim (we didn't) but it's not a real beach.

    Pat G from Vancouver, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Condo is as described, very nice and clean. 2 lanais over the beach, one facing mountains. Watch surfers, paddle boarders, whales, and turtles from the lanai or oceanside sunning deck. Kitchen is well stocked. Pool is warm and clean, with float loungers. Condo had some snorkel gear and property had surfboards and boogey boards for free use. Bert and Marie (property staff) were very nice, and helpful. Nice walking in neighborhood to organic store/deli/smoothie bar, with farmers market MWF and other shops nearby. We drove to other great beaches 10-15 mins north and south--Kaanapali, Kahekili, Napili, DT Fleming--for varied experiences.

    Couple disappointments: the beach is eroded and some days it was a little tricky getting from the stairs to the sand, having to climb a couple rocks while clinging to the stair railing. It is not a beach for walking. Also, our microwave and both DVD players were broken. Marie brought us new ones, and paid for our movie rental--but then we had to figure out how to hook the DVD up.

    a great time with a group of 8 of us. we really enjoyed the ocean front and the sound of the surf, with a daily show of whales turtles outriggers and more. the local market was great. We will be back. one item we didn't appreciate was an early morning call around 9 am from the office on our final day asking when we planned to leave !!

    We were extremely pleased with our stay at Makani Sands. The unit we rented (309) was recently updated and was very comfortable for our family of 5. The location of the property is outstanding as you are just a few steps from the ocean and are very close to shopping and restaurants.

    Additionally, the property manager went over and above to pack and ship our bags home when an unexpected brush fire on the island prevented us from getting back to the condo during our last day in Maui.

    We saw turtles pretty much every day and at multiple times. Location was handy for getting around. The place could use a few fix ups; we noticed the cupboards and doors were a bit beat up. Some of the glass around the lanai areas were cracked or broken. But overall this place is excellent - I will come back next time i'm in Maui.

    Our family was in awe upon arriving at the townhouse! 2 balconies overlooking the ocean with sea turtles and whales in view, rolling waves and a sea breeze to lull you to sleep at night, we never closed the windows or screen doors. All the comforts of home plus snorkel gear, water shoes, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and much more provided. Centrally located to many activities and the office person and grounds manager were wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

    Danielle B from Cobble Hill, BC recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time at Makani Sands. The unit was well equipped, and it has a really great view. We wouldn't hesitate to re-book at this location. Only small downside was that the carpet was damp from cleaning for the first few days and the ceiling fan in the master bedroom wasn't working, although they had someone in to fix it after 4 days - so the second half was cooler than the first half.

    A lovely stay of two weeks with grandchildren
    and children. Because of the intentisty of the weather and the continuing heat it was somewhat like a day in Phoenix. Adequate cooling provision would have been deeply appreciated. We purchased four fans and then shared them with others when it came time for our departure. The facility needs to take guest comfort under consideration when it comes to excessive warmth.

    Diana C from North Vancouver, BC recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed 1 week in unit 309. We were 5 people. It is exactly as you see it on the pictures. It is very comfortable, very clean, we had everything we needed. The building is old but the unit inside has been updated. The swiming pool is very nice, safe and clean. What we love the most was the private beach. The building manager, the rental office ladies and the cleaning staff were very helpful and friendly. We really liked it there. Next time in Maui we will comeback to Makani Sands. We highly recomended. (The only thing that needs to be change is the mattress in the pull out couch. We didn't use it but we checked it out and you can tell the mattress is worn out. An adult won't be comfortable sleeping there). There are ants, it is very common in tropical contries, but if you keep the countere, the tables clean, and your food in the fridge or packed you won't have any problem.

    Leonard R from Yakima, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Personalized, comfortable and genuine come to mind as I reflect on our last 10 days. Spacious bedrooms with private lanai and spa like bathrooms upstairs. Large kitchen, everything a cook needs,brith dining area and seats for all on main lanai. Beach at low tide, sea turtles, and very nice Bar B Q. Sunsets were magical. The facility attracts Pleasant people who assemble to create their own ritual of sea shell horns filling the are with whale like tones as the sun crosses the horizon.
    This atmosphere is is the result of the facility staff who are our hosts. We are having a great time and are staying another 22 two days in a different unit.

    The condo was as described and very nice. The kitchen had everything we needed and was well appointed. The pool was not as lovely as the pictures online would suggest and you had to swim in the morning to get any sun. This is a non-smoking property, unfortunately there were some very rude and inconsiderate smokers who were constantly smoking so that smoke came into our lanais and condo. Management did try to rectify the smoking situation to no avail, overall a nice place to stay, however, if smoking is a big issue with you, as it is with us, don't think this is truly "smoke free".

    We had a wonderful stay at Makani Sands. We were a group of friends - two married couples and two single women - and condo 309 was perfect for us! The condo was well stocked with everything we needed and the view of the ocean on the lanai was beautiful! We watched whales every morning during coffee and the sound of the waves at night could be heard even in the back bedroom if we left our doors open. We had two rental cars and never had a problem with parking. There was a potluck gathering for all the condos on Tuesday evening and we met other visitors as well as residents. The beach was perfect for swimming and snorkeling and gear is provided. I would definitely stay at Makani Sands again!

    This was our first trip to maui. We took our 2 teenage girls and they each brought a friend. The condo was roomy enough for all of us. Everything was very nice and clean. The oceanfront condo is truly oceanfront. Swam with the sea turtles everyday. Water is very clean and wonderful. Great, safe location. Stores are close by and cute. We did lots of activities while there. The "down town" is far enough but close enough at the same time. Definitely worth the 12 hour flight to get there. Will go back without a doubt. Bert - the grounds supervisor is the best. Very awesome person. Can't wait to return

    309 is an updated, clean 2 storey unit with very good kitchen, bath, laundry amenities in a well maintained building. Fantastic oceanfront location with regular sea turtle visits, whales in the distance and the sound of waves 24-7. Loved the large master BR with floor to ceiling glass and it's own lanai. Planned to use the sofa bed but the mattress was not great so we used the lower trundle mattress instead. No A/C but building is oriented to catch mountain breezes, so was always comfortable. Easy walking distance to groceries, coffee shops and some restaurants. Outdoor common areas along the sea wall are on the basic side, but adequate and always clean. We didn't use the pool area, so can't comment.
