Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Our little piece of paradise has recently been remodeled, giving you the comfort of a brand new kitchen and bathroom with a beautiful open look.
Our condo is at a beautiful beachfront location within walking distance of shops, a farmers market, a natural market, the BEST coffee shop, and restaurants. In the Winter and early-Spring you can see the whales from the comfort of the lanai, and the monk seals and turtles are always a treat when they pay a visit throughout the year. Just 12 steps from the edge of the semi-private beach, you can float on the ocean water, see the delights of snorkeling, bodyboard, or simply catch some rays. When we first came across this condo, we were awestruck by the view.... and we know you will be, too!
This condo has one separate bedroom with a king bed along with a sofa bed in the living room that can sleep 2 extra people. There are ceiling fans, but with the blinds open on both ends, the wonderful Hawaiian breezes flow through to keep it very comfortable inside.
We are just a few short minutes to world-class golf at Kapalua and Kaanapali, and Lahaina Town is only 5 miles away. This is the perfect condo for families and honeymooners alike. We know you'll be in heaven at our condo in paradise!

About Matt Miller
We both grew up in Washington and absolutely share a love of the beach. Watching sunsets over the water, floating in the water, soaking up the sun.... that's what we love in Hawaii. Our teenage kids are no different. We are so happy to share our paradise home... from our family to yours!
Matt Miller purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Matt Miller chose Honokowai
We knew we wanted a place where we would want to retire to eventually. The northwest coast of Maui is simply the most beautiful spot in the world for us. We then wanted something that was right on the ocean that was quiet with a true Hawaiian feel. When we came upon this condo we absolutely fell in love with it and the location... right on a beach, literally 12 steps off of the lanai. We have found paradise!
What makes this Condo unique
We love the fact that we have a beach directly in front of us that gives us all of the unique opportunities to snorkel and bodyboard right there. There is nothing like sitting on our lanai in the early morning, sipping on our coffee or tea, watching the sun rise behind us and cast a sunny glow on both Molokai and Lanai and lighting up the ocean directly in front of us. It's simply amazing!

Great location. Lanai leads RIGHT to the grass and the ocean is just 20 or 30 feet further. Nicely furnished and the bed was SOFT and COMFY, which is what my wife needs.
Dealing with Matt (the owner) has been great too. Communicative but not buggy. Also helpful when we had some issues her in the island, as is the manager of the complex! Truly the best!
We will be back.
Perfect for a couple
Great location, very clean, owners are easy to work with!
Thank you so much for staying in our Maui home! We love sharing the great views it has to offer along with being so close to everything!
Great place for us
The Miller's condo was a good choice for us this time in Maui. Location was perfect and I loved staying on the ground floor where you could look right out on the ocean and hear the waves breaking on the sea wall. The condo was a perfect size for the 2 of us (65+ years young!) and very well stocked. We even received a letter from the Millers describing the condo and their favorite restaurants nearby!
We have stayed in the Westin Ocean Resort Villas in a friend's timeshare, and if a big, 5 star resort is what you are looking for, this is not it. But if you are looking for a comfortable, affordable, well-run and well-cared for condo, look no further.
There are a couple of cons, however. We're from the south, and whenever it gets up to 75 degrees the air conditioning goes on; we are spoiled. When we arrived it was raining hard and the way the condo is laid out, there is a strong cross breeze from the living room/lanai oceanside through to the bedroom near the parking and lobby area. So the cross breeze brought in the warm air and 100% humidity so it felt sticky and damp. But sleep was fine that night and the next morning (and the rest of the stay) the temperature and humidity was not a problem with the cross breeze cooling the condo down. The other slight issue is that the bedroom is near the parking and lobby area and it was a little disconcerting to hear people as they were returning in the evening when we were in bed. But there is a quiet time lined out from 10 pm to 8 am and noise was not a factor.
Would we stay here again? Absolutely!
And we saw turtles every day swimming right in front of the condo. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!
Thank you so much for staying in our Maui home! Being so close to the water gives not only the beauty of the views but the gift of seeing those awesome turtles coming through regularly.... and, unfortunately, those few times during storms when the breezes work against us. We are so glad you had a wonderful time and if you return to Maui we'd love to host you again!
Had a great time and recommend it.
We were happy to host you in our Maui home! We are glad you had an enjoyable time!
We have loved staying here in Makani Sands #108 for the last week. The incredible views are the first thing we noticed coming into the condo. Stunning! We've enjoyed being able to walk right out of the condo, across the grassy area, and right into our beach lounge chairs. The beach in front of Makani Sands is perfect. We loved walking out into the gorgeous turquoise and blue waters! Without a doubt, the most favorite part of our stay was watching the almost constant parade of sea turtles swimming in front of us. Amazing! In the condo itself, having a kitchen and washer and dryer have been great. The condo complex is older but we were looking for low key relaxation, and that's just what we got. The only improvement would be A/C in the bedroom for sleeping. We did use the box fan to cool it off a little more. Mahalo, Matt and Family, for sharing your special home with us. We hope to return soon!
We are so happy to have shared our home in paradise with you! We love the beach and turtles so much as well. Unfortunately due to building regulations we aren't able to have A/C in the bedroom, but between the ceiling fan and box fan we're glad that it cools it down enough to be comfortable at night. We would love to host you again in the future!!!
Yes it is really 20 steps to the water!!
This is a quaint complex, and the people there are wonderful. From the check in with Marie and the maintenance crew!. Very beautiful sunsets from the Lanai.
This located and convenient to many restaurants and activities we had a great time
It is that quaint, "Hawaiian home" feel of our complex that added to the spectacular waterfront/beachfront beauty of our property that made us fall in love with it! We are so glad to have shared it with you and hope to share it with you again should you return to beautiful Maui! Mahalo!!
We are situated on a semi-private beach centrally located within walking distance of a farmers market, natural foods market, coffee shop, restaurants, and a dive shop. A short 10 minute drive gets you to historic Lahaina town to shop, dine, and catch ocean tours (whale/dolphin watching), the Lanai ferry, and fishing charters. World-class resort golf is 5 minutes away in either direction. Beautiful Napili Beach is just 5 minutes to the north and another 10 minutes past that is a blowhole of epic proportions. The airport is a 40 minute drive away in Kahului.
