Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, lovely, lovely. The longer we stayed the more we fell in love with the place and surroundings. We wanted a getaway spot to celebrate Grace's 50th birthday and this was it. We took a trip into busy Kihei to really appreciate the calm, the view, and the privacy. Your home has all the amenities We found whale watching best between 4:30-6:00pm. You have some great beaches nearby but we enjoyed the bluff and the deck more. Thank you so much.

Makena Bay House - Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
I am writing this review almost 10 months after our visit, because we just rented The Makena Bay House for our vacation again this year. That says it all -- we enjoyed ourselves so much that we just had to go back and do it again.
The location of the house is perfect for us because we don't like lots of traffic, noise and congestion. The privacy, the quiet and the quality of the house fully met and exceeded our expectations. There was never a time of needing something that wasn't there. There was even some Longboard Beer in the refrigerator!
The boogie board that was leaning against the wall next to the outdoor shower got lots of use at Big Beach and even Little Beach just down the road.
We are impressed with Lisa and with her desire for us to be happy. We have absolutely no complaints. We used the hot tub several times and the outdoor shower every morning - it truly is Paradise.
My wife loved to shop at the Waialea Shops also close (but not too close). There is a really cool little church that we attended a few hundred yards down the road - the service was done in English and Native Hawaiian - very interesting.
We are excited and looking forward to our second visit to The Makena House.

Our longing to return

  • 5 of 5
How does one accurately write about a place to which one longs to return?

I determined to write about the incomparable experience that my wife and I had over the week we were so fortunate to be guests at the Makena Bay House. I expected that it would be relatively easy to do. Cheri and I had never before been to a place in which we felt that, near the end, we had actually become part of that place. Yet, when I sat down to write, words did not come. In trying to write this, I suddenly realized how much I miss being there with her. The transformative combination of privacy coupled with the vastness of the ocean as breakers crash below our feet, while lounging on the edge of the manicured lawn. The early rays of dawn ushering in the serene mornings, while paddleboards and sailboats ply the sea’s still surface.

Speech between us was unnecessary for long hours. The communication ran from the hand of God to both of us, together, as we became absorbed by, and into, this indescribable place. It has seeped into our souls. To us, the Makena Bay House will never be defined as a vacation home. To limit it in such a way would be like describing Mozart as an old songwriter or Michaelangelo as a ceiling painter. It is, instead, a place which we chose, while on Maui, not to leave for any length of time. When we were gone elsewhere on the island, our overriding thought was to return.

Having written this, I now know what we must do. We must return. It has been too long since we have been gone.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We found a paradise location on VBRO. It sounded wonderful but places are not always as described. Makena Bay House was more than we expected. A beautiful, private, magnificently appointed home -- a true paradise within the Paradise of Maui. The longer we stayed the more we fell in love with the home; the surroundings and the tranquility it offers. This home has everything one dreams of when imaging a vacation in Maui. We had the privilege of working with Lisa who not only responded quickly but always followed-up to ensure all was perfect. We met our neighbors to the North…also lovely, wonderful people; snorkeled with the turtles; enjoyed many of the beaches in the area; but mostly nestled in the beautiful home, in privacy and comfort among the magnificent surroundings and views. Thank you. Michael & Tara, Seattle, WA

Best value on South Maui

  • 5 of 5
Most idyllic location in Maui: away from the busier centres of Kihei and Lahaina, located in Makena Landing. Small beach located a stones throw North of the cottage(1 minute walk), which is a great place to launch your paddle boards or kayaks. Great snorkeling on both the South side of the bay(shallower and easier for the beginner to intermediate snorkeler) or the North side of the Bay(the 5 graves/caves side. The latter is deeper and a longer swim out, but this can be reduced if u take a kayak/paddle board out and tie up to one of the buoys out there. If you are a real keen snorkeler this is a great spot to call your vacation home. We went out every morning before the winds and the guide boats showed up. Less bodies equals less spooked sea life. We encountered a resting white tip reef shark(in one of the 'caves'), spotted eagle rays, a seal, eels, copious amounts of turtles, all the traditional Hawaiian reef fish and the very well camouflaged frog fish. Back to the hot tub for a longboard lager by 10am. Ya 'hot tub' ! I never thought I would be in a hot tub in Hawaii...the thought is almost laughable, but it was fantastic after a few hours in the water. The outdoor shower was awesome...I don't think I ever showed in-doors. The house is very nicely appointed and has all the amenities one could require. Great communication on behalf of the owners. Definitely recommend!

Spectacular stay at this home

  • 5 of 5
First of all let me say that it is often difficult to find a) a place for just one couple, and b) a truly spectacular view that also affords you some privacy.

We loved our stay in this home so much that we actually ended up cooking at home half the nights as there was no restaurant that could give us a better table to watch the sunset. Further, where else can you relax and watch the sea turtles come up an play right at your shore? We used the kayak kept at the house to go out 3 or 4 different times during our stay.

So yes it is exactly as advertised..............everything was well maintained, the hot tub & outdoor shower expecially nice.......... really just for a couple or for a family of four........we would definitely stay here again.
