We invite you to share in our home away from home, Mele Kai (ocean song). Located on the West side of Maui. This is a smaller condo complex unlike the big resorts. View sea turtles or whale watching in season, sunsets, and island views of Molokai and Lanai are yours to enjoy from two ocean front lanais.
This large 1,400 square foot condo is located so close to the ocean you could throw a stone into it. Both oceanfront lanais (balconies) in our two-story condo boast extraordinary views. Since the condo is a corner unit, you have spectacular panoramic ocean views all the way down the coast.
The condo has a beachy feel, perfect for a casual vacation. The main living area is spacious with a dining area and seating for six. A lanai overlooks the ocean, so you can expand the living area outdoors for full indoor/outdoor living. Enjoy gazing over the ocean, or just listening to the waves.
The Master bedroom is the premier bedroom, being oceanfront with full ocean views. It has its own private lanai and full bath with a tub. The second bedroom is upstairs and has a king bed and a full bathroom with tub. The third bedroom is downstairs and has a pair of twin beds that can be converted to a third king, and access to the half bath downstairs. Each bedroom is fully enclosed offering privacy. The beds are high quality and comfortable. There is central air conditioning or balmy trade wind breezes.
The grounds are tropically landscaped and offer lounge chairs, outdoor seating and 4 gas grills oceanfront. The heated pool is warm, private, and has an outdoor shower.
Honokowai is located North of historic Lahaina town, between Kaanapali and Kapalua resorts, and is a half mile from a grocery store, shops, coffee house, and a farmer’s market. A beach walk extends from nearby Duke's Restaurant all the way to Kaanapali Beach. There is a bus stop (busses every half hour) in front of the building if the kids want to go explore on their own. World class resorts, famous beaches, championship golf courses, and even ferry rides to Lanai and Molokai are within 15 minutes driving time or less. We invite you to enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do.
We come here yearly to visit family. It is a great place to visit and get away from all the stress of real life. The ocean is nice and warm and the view is perfect. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo. It is a nice place to sit and enjoy the scenery. We also like the wooden sea turtle on the wall.
We were surprised to see that the kitchen had been upgraded since the pictures! It had everything needed for cooking great meals! Also the condo has air conditioning throughout! The views were amazing, couldn't ask for better! We loved our stay, it was the perfect place. Also, Bert is the best, he made our stay even more special!
We had a family of five. My husband, myself, my brother and our 85 year old parents. This condo had it all. The bedroom on the main, served my parents extremely well, as the stairs were an issue. The bedrooms upstairs both had king beds and private bathrooms, such a nice luxury! You COULD not beat the view! Steps in front of the condo was the roaring waves of the ocean. The staff were nothing short of awesome! No request was too small and they were all taken care of in an extremely timely fashion. The dishwasher had an issue and was fixed within hours. The coffee machine wasn't working to it's fullest, a new one within the day. I don't want issues when I'm away, so to have a team to take care of it was remarkable! I would highly reccommend this condo, as it served 5 of us beautifully and with no issues. The condo is situated in a great part of Lahaina and is close to all amenities. The pool was clean and tidy, although I was surprised it was in the back of the condo, and not on the ocean side. Aside from that, it was great to relax in and they even supplied the floaties! Thank you for making this trip a wonderful experience!
6 of stayed here (4 adults, 2 children) and absolutely loved this place. Plenty of room, very clean, unbeatable views, and a quiet condo complex. Bert (lives onsite) was awesome and so friendly along with the office staff. My kids loved the pool and the beach. Plenty of space where we didn't feel like we were crowding each other. In the interest of full disclosure, the ONLY downside to this condo is the 2nd master bedroom. The street noise and the AC unit powering on and off all night made for a lot of sleepless nights. This is no fault of the owner but more just a warning that you should bring ear plugs if you're sensitive to noises at night. It is also is the hottest bedroom in the house. After some trial and error with the AC and trade winds we got it to a comfortable temp for sleeping (hint: keep doors to both masters open so the winds blow through and turn on AC at night or you will melt into a puddle). This wasn't a deal breaker for us and we would happily stay here again - the location, the views, the cleanliness, the friendly staff completely outweighed the minor hiccups with the bedroom. We will certainly be back again. Thank you to Melissa and everyone onsite for the wonderful experience. It's a vacation we will certainly remember forever.
My two children and their spouses and I, really enjoyed our stay in your property. We celebrated my 75th birthday there! The location was perfect because of access to the beach. Interior delightful! Staff very helpful too.
I loved this place. As mentioned in prior reviews, the condo is well taken care of and very well-stocked. Melissa was extremely helpful throughout the booking and planning process. Can't get much closer to the water!! Love that view and could stare at it all day/ night. This is a great value for an oceanfront place - and Kahana is a great location; walking distance to Maui Brewing, Dollies, Miso Phat, etc. Just a couple suggestions - I would have loved to have a bistro table and chairs out on the patio (i.e. higher up so you can see over the railing while sitting). The wooden slats on the railing are thick and they block the view when you are sitting on the outdoor furniture, thus I always felt like I need to be standing up to take advantage of the view. The other thing that would be nice is to have a few cheap sets of snorkeling equipment available so people don't have to rent. I brought my own this time but would love to have it available there. All in all, I highly recommend this place. Oh, and I was concerned about road noise as I am very sensitive to it, and it was not an issue in this unit at all. Thanks Melissa!
We are almost through our 10 night stay and have nothing but great things to say about the accommodations and the staff at Makani Sands.
This is not your glitzy resort where people go to be seen. If you are looking for quiet, awesome views and a very comfortable accommodation, this is it!
We are staying with our two daughters and their spouses and the three bedrooms are very comfortable. The facility has only a small number of units so you are not constantly battling for space by the water.
There are 4 bbq's on the patio which are more than adequate for all guests. We never ran into any problems.
You are also located within walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. If you like a longer walk, the Beach Walk is just down the road which takes you all the way into Whalers Village and beyond.
We will definitely return in the future.
