  • 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."

  • Location, Location, Location

    "This place is a hidden gem. As you walk through the front door you are greeted with a stunning view of the ocean. If you like to snorkel/dive right off of the beach, look no further. They call the area Turtle Town for good reason, we saw turtles every time we snorkeled from the beach. Just 200 yards offshore there is a reef full of all types of fish and turtles. This is where the boats pull just offshore and anchor with their divers in the mid-morning. If you like sunsets, this is also the place. We made a point every night to sit on the porch or walk the beach and watch the Hawaian sunsets. This is a very quiet/secluded location, away from the big hotels and crowds, but close to shopping and restaurants. The accomodations are very nice. Large bedrooms, great living area for you and guests, and a nicely appointed kitchen. There are tennis courts and a pool right outside your door. The property manager checked throughout the week to make sure everything was in order. The state park is just down the street. Also, if you like to walk/run there are good areas to do that right from the condo."

  • 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!"

  • Absolutely amazing!

    "I cannot imagine staying in a nicer place than this unit. Absolutely everything was top of the line and it felt like a luxury hotel. The only problem we had were with the toilets but they were promptly fixed by the management so should not be a problem again. One of the best things is that it had all the beach necessities needed - beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, even some snorkel gear. The location on the beach is so close that you feel like you are on the beach while relaxing on the comfy lounge chairs on the balcony. The sunsets are amazing and we got to watch several weddings and photography sessions as the beach is so lovely. The unit is also right next to the pool and tennis court and the grounds of the complex are beautiful. The beach felt like your own private beach since there were usually only a few families out at a time. Snorkeling is great right off the beach and you will most certainly see giant turtles! Would definitely stay in this unit again on our next trip to Maui!"
