  • Our longing to return

    "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."

  • Better than staying at the top resorts!

    "My husband and I returned to Maui for our 10th anniversary with our two small children. The view was breathtaking! I stood in the entryway to the living room area and was awestruck! All I could say was "awesome". We sat out on the lanai each night to look at the stars and the reflection of the moon on the water. The unit itself far exceeded our expectations. We hope to be able to stay there for our 15th anniversary! I will plan our trip around the availability of this unit. When we were married, we stayed in a suite at the Fairmont Kae Lani. We would rather stay at Makena Surf F204!"

  • Perfect Staycation!!!

    "The Lu'uwai Mekena Landing home was perfect in every way! Celebrated my twin grandsons 1st birthday here. Nine adults and four children, very comfortable rooms that accommodated our group wonderfully. The kitchen is well stocked and a joy to prepare food in. We enjoyed the beautiful yard, amazing view and fun in the ocean. Highly recommended."

  • Perfect

    "What a wonderful birthday getaway we had! The condo was perfect, and included everything you might need for a week+ stay...blender, ice maker, coffee grinder, integrated entertainment system, gas grill on lanai, wine glasses, internet, etc. And best of all everything worked! We stay in vacation rentals a few times a year and functional appliances is something you can't take for granted. Beds, sofas and deck chairs were all fresh and comfortable. The views were spectacular. Breakfast, mid-day drinks and dinners on the lanai were peaceful and scenic. We watched whales, waves crashing, sunsets and rainbows from the lanai, which made it hard to leave. But beach, pool, hot tub, gardens, kayaking and snorkeling awaited just steps away. While snorkeling right in front of the condo, we saw giant green sea turtles and a host of other marine creatures. WOW. I can't think of anything else we could have asked for...PERFECT!"
