  • 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."

  • A week in Paradise

    "A Previous reviewer got it right .......WOW!. We had such a wonderful time at the condo. Our expectations were high on what to expect but they were exceeded in every way. From the moment we opened the door and could see the BLUE ocean to the short stroll to the beach along the patio’s paradise like walkway followed by rounding the corner to the beach that provided the most amazing breathtaking panoramic view of everything Hawaii. Then of course came sunset, viewed almost daily from the large Lanai, an ever changing canvas throughout the sunset and every evening starting with a clean sheet. The Condo itself was very elegant without being stuffy in the least, it allowed us to lay back with ample room and comfort for each of the 5 in our party. All creature comforts and more were provided. The restaurants we found to be very good and returned to least a couple of times were the the Cafe ole, 808 and the Sansei. Can't wait to get back there! Mahalo"

  • Magical Makena

    "Home, sipping kona coffee on our "lanai", I still can hear the ocean and birds, the light on the palms and cliffs at sunrise is forever part of me. Another mahalo for making our vacation such a memorable one. You were great to work with, early arrival And so quick to solve Internet glitch, great info in binder, perfect taste in decor and such well thought out things in place for a home away from home. I might have to shower outside under the hose near our sago Palm:) we were very blessed to have happened upon the oceanfront cottage at makena in our vrbo search and there is no question if we are ever back on maui, it will be our place to stay. A true snorkeler/kayaker nirvana. Fondly, Marty Carlsen"

  • 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!"
