About Jan Hendrix

We love this neighborhood! The spacious lots, the amazing views, the peace and quiet - these are the elements of our Maui Shangri-La. We are excited to be able to share this very special property with you.

Jan Hendrix purchased this estate in 2007

Why Jan Hendrix chose Lahaina

The property has amazing unobstructed views. The neighborhood is very upscale, and this house is a super value-oriented offering compared to the mansions surrounding it! This is a vacation spot for 'real people' looking for serenity and relaxation. It is best suited for independent minded travelers. Please check the guest comments to see how many people have loved it here over the years.

What makes this estate unique

The neighborhood has a 7 mile running and walking trail to which the home offers easy access. It's so easy to visit all of Maui from this location. It's about 2 miles to Lahaina, so having an elegant dinner in Lahaina is as easy as can be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are old friends having a big reunion here on Maui. Doing everything, eating and playing everywhere. We stayed in both cottages and had a blast! We watched the most beautiful sunsets every night, we lingered on the deck until well after sunset to enjoy the spectrum of beautiful colors changing through with the light. The best part of our trip was spending time together and sharing memories. I loved the week we spent here! Your cottage is in a wonderful location. We had a truly relaxing vacation, and thanks for the wonderful home!

All you could ask for...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Makila Plantation home this spring. The home is idyllic and the setting provides exceptional views of the ocean in front and mountains behind. Everything you need is on the property and the suite is luxurious and spacious. With a huge lanai outside the door and prevailing breezes it's comfortable and relaxing. Jan is always available while being low profile and Kiwi her Welsh terrier entertained us in her role as surrogate pup.

If you don't want to battle with crowded resorts at half of what the resorts charge while enjoying privacy and comfort, Makila Plantation Home is a no brainer.

Unique Hawaiian Experience in a Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

There are countless vacation rentals on Maui. Most are generic condos crowded together. Fine if you like anonymous or really need to be on the beach. But if you want to experience what it is like to live on a Hawaiian estate off the tourist path, Makila house is a great option. It is technically as advertised: master bedroom suite in private home. And the suite is really big and beautiful with a huge shower as shown in the pictures. However, what you really get is use of a large, very well equipped home with gorgeous hardwood floors. You access the covered porch with dining and sitting areas directly from your room. It is way, way bigger and nicer than any condo balcony with a great views to the ocean, which is about a mile away. The neighbors are mostly multi-million dollar homes, set like Makila on several acres. There is an excellent, easy walking and bike trail right at the edge of the property. True, you really need a car to get to the beach. But there are many beaches on Maui and most people want to visit more than one, so this isn't onerous. What you get in exchange is a vacation home with no traffic and no noise other than birds.

We have stayed at many VRBO properties and, in the past, rented on Maui for long periods. But this was our first in a suite shared with the owner living in the house. We like privacy and we were a bit nervous about this. Our fears were needless. Our host, Jan, could not have been nicer. She was there if you needed her or wanted to talk, but never obtrusive or, for the most part, even visible.

All in all, a great choice.

This reviewer worked in the resort industry for over 25 years and currently stays at vacation rental properties four to six months a year. In other words, we know what good is.

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Makila Plantation Home is in on a lovely, large lot in a quiet neighborhood with 180 degree ocean views to the west (incredible sunsets) and 180 degree mountain views to the east. Right below her neighborhood is a lovely, quiet, beach park where we could hang out to read and enjoy the waves coming ashore. Just behind the house is a nice, paved, walking trail, a couple of miles long. The house has a welcoming ambiance and is beautifully furnished. There is a spacious, furnished lanai where we a number of meals. Jan the owner has a wealth of knowledge about Maui and things that visitors might want to do (Maui has a multitude of interesting possibilities, most within short driving distance). She also has a lovely, energetic terrier, KIwi, who is available for play if you ask.

All of this came at a very reasonable daily rate.

if you want a beach out your front door, a crowded swimming pool, cookie cutter rooms, a concierge, etc. this is not the place for you. If instead you are looking for privacy, a home with personality and incredible views, then Makila is the place.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Jan's house during our 1 week honeymoon in Maui. She was such a gracious host. Her plantation house affords great views of the ocean from the back porch and quick access to Lahaina. The property is very clean, and well maintained. I would highly recommend it anyone looking for a 1 week stay in Maui. My wife and I would stay there again if we visited Maui.
