  • Incredible slice of ocean front

    "Makana Akua is a wonderful place to spend your well earned vacation. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated and very well stocked. You can see the ocean from the kitchen, living room, and bedroom, but you can't see into the home from the beach which makes it completely private. We walked down the beach most mornings to look for shells or snorkel at tunnels beach. There is even a shaved ice stand at the state beach that is within walking distance. The other direction down the beach is the Hanalei Colonial Resort and Mediterranean restaurant which serves delicious meals. The road in front of the house is a nice road for early morning walks or runs. It is a beautifully scenic approximately three mile windy stretch of road to the trailhead of the Napali Coast trail. Makana Akua is just far enough away from Hanalei Bay to feel remote and peaceful, but still close enough to go to the grocery store, shop, or grab a meal. It was the perfect location and home for a relaxing vacation for a family of four. We loved it!"

  • Comfortable, peaceful, and lovely

    "What a sweet place to stay! After our busy days of beach time and touring the island, it was lovely to return to this peaceful oasis. The suite is very private, quiet, and comfortable. The deck overlooking the river and the wonderful tub out there are stellar features. I loved being able to fill the tub with fresh water at just the right temperature...delightful during the day and magical at night under the stars. The suite and deck are on the second floor, and it feels a bit like a tree house up there among all the pretty trees. The view of Bali Hai from the deck is gorgeous. There was a nice breeze coming down the river most of every day and evening. I was expecting mosquitoes, but not a single bite for either of us. The bed is comfy and the suite had everything we needed. The kitchenette is well equipped. Julie and her family are delightful hosts, helpful but very unobtrusive. If you are seeking a nice spot, away from the condo scene, consider staying here. We enjoyed being close enough to Tunnels and Ke'e to sleep in a bit and still beat the crowds to the beaches in the mornings. It made parking a breeze. Hanalei is a short and beautiful drive away for groceries, restaurants, and shopping. We loved the suite and look forward to returning. Mahalo, Julie and family!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We just got home from a wonderful vacation with three generations of our family. The location was perfect for us, close to the beaches and not far from Hanalei. We swam, played on the beaches, hiked, took surf lessons and ate out a couple of times. The house with it's two bedrooms and it's separate bedroom and bath suite worked well for our large group. What a great place and what warm hospitality. Highly recommended."

  • The Tiki Hut Paradise

    "We have enjoyed the charming hospitality of your lovely Tiki Hut while taking advantage of the pleasures of the Island. Thank you for this home away from home. It has afforded us all of the conveniences we could ask for. And OH! The mornings and twilights on the lanai's have given us many happy memories. The beautifully decorated Tiki Hut welcomes you with flowers in the rooms and some sweet amenities. The owners, Toni, CB and dog, Nugget are the perfect hosts and we look forward to returning soon. The Tiki Hut is surrounded by lush gardens and it is near our favorite beach, Tunnels. Mahalo. Mary Lou and John"
