REVIEWS FROM PREVIOUS GUESTS:
***What a special place. We will be back.***
The condo is just as advertised. The condo was immaculate and recently upgraded. We loved being on the ground floor, right next to the ocean, which was 20 feet away. The kids had a great time playing with neighbor kids on the grass in front of our lanai. If we had booked a place on the 2nd floor or higher we would not been able to do this. Plus we were conveniently located close to the bbq grill, so were were able to walk to and from our place with ease. We saw turtles everywhere. There seem to be about 7 or 8 that live in front of the building. There were also eels that people were feeding. Burt was amazing. Owner was friendly and responsive. We will be staying here next time we come to Maui. A+++

***Relaxing stay in a great location!***
My husband, sister-in-law and her husband LOVED this spot. The huge patio with BBQ access made cooking and eating meals at home so easy. Ground floor meant no waiting for elevators or battling stairs—we just walked in the door for refills and back out to the sunshine! The guys took early morning walks to the nearby Bad Ass Coffee shop right through to the pathways along the Ka'anapali beaches almost every day. Lounging in the yard and being able to walk down a few steps to the water to cool off was a dream (or else we were only a few minutes' drive away at the beach in Whaler's Village). We were able to rent beach chairs and umbrellas at Boss Frog's down the street! We made many trips into Lahaina (so many options—you HAVE to get an ice cream sandwich from Banyan Treats and eat a meal oceanside at Honu), which was conveniently close. There's no air conditioning (which my husband usually dies without) but the number of fans and the breezes with open windows made it totally bearable. We also closed the back blinds later in the day so it really cooled off at night. The kitchen and unit in general are really well stocked, we had everything we needed from towels to a blender and even a cooler to bring to the beach! Definitely the most amenities I've ever found in a rental. The kitchen and bathrooms are nicely upgraded. The last thing I wanted to mention was how awesome the atmosphere of Makani Sands was. The building manager Burt was quick to introduce himself and say he was available any time, and he even organized a small sunset potluck party for the whole building one evening. Everyone was so friendly! Kids were often playing in the yard (it was Easter weekend so they were even doing an Easter egg hunt one morning—too cute) and adults always said hello. Thanks again for everything!

***Awesome right on the ocean!***
Property was as advertised. King bed, 2twins, sleeper sofa was perfect for my family of 5. Literally 30 ft from back door to the beach. Kitchen had what we needed. Close to grocery store and places to eat. They have paddle boards, boogie boards and a 2 man rowboat. We saw sea turtles almost every day right out back. There are reef fish just off shore, watch out there are some urchins there as well. Located about 15 minutes from Lahaina. Loved it will definitely use again for Maui stay

***Ocean front, beautiful rental - great stay!***
Thank you for an amazing time in Maui at this incredible place. Steps from the ocean and walking distance from an all organic grocery store and farmer's market are just a few perks. The ground person could not be more friendly and the condo is newly remodeled and well equipped. Barbecuing for our family while the kids played was a highlight, but there are also amazing restaurants close by. The pool was great too and while you can snorkel here we found Napili Bay really easy to get too and our 5 and 7 year old both learned to snorkel. Matt was extremely responsive as well. You'll love it here!

***Wonderful location and property.***
This is a fabulous find, semi- private beach, 20 steps to the beautiful waters of Maui. Great location and comfortable condo. Views of Lanai, Molokai, sunsets and Sea Turtles. Couldn't have asked for better memories.

***This condo provides what you expect from a Maui Vacation!***
This condo was everything the owner claims and more. Nestled between Kaanapali and Napili on the west coast of Maui, this condo is in the perfect location for weather, access, and convenience. The unit is very well maintained, with the kitchen and bathrooms recently renovated with new appliances. The unit will sleep 6, and was extremely comfortable for our family of 5. We used the kitchen to prepare most of our meals and we ate on the lanai on the provided outdoor table. All-in-all, it was more than I expected give the extremely reasonable price for this unit. As described, the unit is a first floor unit, and has easy walk out access to the lanai. The lanai is bordered by a beautifully maintained shared grassy area with Tiki torches that are lit on most nights. Just beyond the grassy area is a large deck with lounge chairs, a few tables, and several barbecue grills. Down a few stairs on the deck is a private beach (as private as they come in Hawaii), and some of the best beach snorkeling available. We were greeted daily by sea turtles both on the beach and in the surf. In addition to the surf, the complex has a very well maintained pool. The location of the property is convenient from several angles. It is North of Lahaina enough to not be too hot, but only get the occasional sprinkle of drizzle to cool off in the afternoon. There are several good restaurants in the area, and it is close enough to Napili, Kaanapali, and Lahaina for 10-15 minute drives to hundreds of restaurants, shops, and luaus. And if you don't want to drive, there is a market, snorkel rentals, and several restaurants within walking distance. But bottom-line, book this place for the walk-out access to the beach, the sea-turtles and the amazing sunsets. We could have never had the vacation we did had we been stuck on the something floor of a whatever floor complex with our heads hanging over a railing to catch a glimpse of the surf 1/4 mile away. This unit offers the Hawaii experience that you expect when you think Maui Vacation. If we return to Maui, we'll book here. This place has spoiled us for nearly any other place.

***You won't believe this place - it is paradise!***
We have been to Maui several times but this last trip topped them all. The view from the condo is second to none. There are great restaurants within walking distance or a short drive, but we loved our grill by the beach most of all. While your meat is cooking you can watch the whales or turtles play off shore, or enjoy the most spectacular sunset you may ever see. The condo is so well furnished from beds to living room furniture as well as the porch. The kitchen is fully furnished with all the equipment you will need. It was great to have the beach so close and so private, our kids got to play while we could easily watch them. There was also many toys for them to enjoy. We have already booked our return trip and will make this at least a once a year destination. Do yourself a big favor and book this condo. THIS PLACE IS THE REAL DEAL!!
