  • WOW!

    "WOW! That was the first word out of my mouth when we walked into the condo. My family had a wonderful time. Beautiful beaches only steps away. Looked forward to every morning so we could view the ocean. Magical! THANK YOU!"

  • Superb

    "Myself and 4 girlfriends just returned from an absolutely amazing stay in Makena. We picked this unit because it looked to be one of the closest units to one of the best beaches in all of Wailea/Makena. As with nearly everything on VRBO, the pictures looked great, but you never really know until you get there. Well, this is a case of pictures not doing justice. The unit was comfortable, well-cared for and clean. It fit our needs perfectly. What usually makes a vacation special are the little details that unfortunately are more often then not overlooked by management. Definitely not here. Case in point, there was a rather bountiful gift basket waiting for us upon arrival. Not a big deal, but since somehow we had managed to forget to pick up coffee on the way to Makena, the exquisite local coffee was appreciated beyond words. In addition, there were plenty of beach chairs, towels, etc. which made our hours on the beach that much more enjoyable. Finally, a shout out to Maria, the property manager. She was just as attentive with her communication as she was with the details of the unit itself. The check in procedure was clearly laid out prior to arrival and we even received an email the day before communicating a minor maintenance issue that was going to take place at the end of our vacation. Upon our return home she sent an email to make sure everything was as expected during our stay, which of course it was beyond our expectations. This is a place we would love to come back to again (and again) which is really the highest recommendation we can give. Enjoy your stay!!"

  • Blown away!!!

    "This place was amazing! Can't beat the location!! So nice being so close to the beach. Great snorkeling. Beautiful condo. Nicely decorated and well cared for. Owners were wonderful! We departed for the island knowing 2 hurricanes were forecast during our stay. Owners kept in contact with us the entire time. They were available to answer our concerns and questions."

  • 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."
