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
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
My husband and I just returned to Massachusetts from our vacation on Maui. This was our 5th time staying in the Lahaina area, and we definitely found our home away from home at Makila Plantation Home B&B.
MPH is a beautiful property in the West Maui hills with a gorgeous view. It is away from the crowds, but close to everything. Jan’s home is lovely and well maintained inside and out. The B&B suite is magnificent with a huge walk in closet and gorgeous bath with all the amenities. The beautifully decorated suite opens up to a large back porch with comfortable outdoor furnishings.
Every morning we would wake up to the chirping of birds, then make our way to the paved walking trail just outside the house, watching the sun move through the mountains. Upon our return, Jan would have the coffee on and we would grab a cup and sit on the porch overlooking the ocean.
What makes MPH truly special is the way Jan makes to you feel like you belong there, without being intrusive. She opens her home graciously. She accommodates your needs, and she is mindful of your privacy.
We had an awesome time, we will definitely be returning!
We stayed for a week with Jan at her amazing house. The property is absolutely incredible with sweeping hillside views of the ocean in a very quiet neighborhood. Jan made us feel at home the entire time (and we spent many hours relaxing on the Lanai in between outings). The house is minutes from a fantastic public beach park and just down the road (5-10 minutes) to Lahaina. My wife and I would stay here again in a heartbeat if we return to Maui.
Jeff and I would like to let you know how much we enjoyed the house. It far exceeded our expectations, in fact, it is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed in Hawaii. And, we have been visiting the islands for 30 years! The open floor plan and sleeping accommodations were perfect for us, with the added bonus of outdoor hot tub and walking trail outside the front door. We spent most of our time together on the spacious ocean side lanai. We never turned on a TV! That 360 degree ocean view is spectacular, we already miss it.
The home was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. The view was stunning, perfectly located minutes from all the action in Lahaina town, shops, galleries and restaurants. We are from NYC and we are pretty picky when it comes to accommodations. Jan's exquisite home did not disappoint!
Located in a private neighborhood on a hill near historic Lahaina and the resorts of Ka'anapali, this lovely plantation style home on 6 acres offers huge views, and is a wonderful place to really relax and unwind. The location provides easy access to all of Maui. It's a private sanctuary with amazing views and a rural feeling while offering easy access to town and all the best activities of Maui. The home has all the furnishings and equipment you need to be at home here, to relax deeply and enjoy the good life.
