Why Sue Johnson chose Makena

My parents built this home in 1969, when the only access was a dirt road. They lived here year round, but had no mail or paper delivery for many years. Its a lovely, quiet location in a pristine area, which my husband and I regularly update, and keep decorated in the Hawaiian style.

What makes this House unique

Snorkeling, turtle and whale viewing (in winter months) is awesome from our location. We can also swim off the left front side of our property. Our oceanfront location with sunset views overlooking 3 islands and 2 peninsulas is truly unparalleled.

I love this part of Maui, and to top it off, finally got a chance to stay in a quiet neighborhood tucked away from the busy-ness of the rest of the island. The house itself was super spacious and accommodated our group of 6 really well. Kitchen was nice and big and the drink bar was also a huge hit with the guests. A beautiful beach just a few minutes walk away. Thanks again Sue and Clark - we can't wait to come back!

It worked great for our group of 5. We enjoyed the flexibility to cook our owns meals versus having to eat out. The location was breathtaking; we were able to watch turtles and whales from the property.

                                                                  Premier location, quiet neighborhood, family home

                                                                  This was our second stay at Makena Makai. Whenever we come to Maui we choose to stay in this special neighborhood. Unparalleled views, privacy, and quiet in this priciest of resort areas. We brought our two adult children and their partners, and the house worked well for the 6 of us, as each bedroom has a bit of privacy and its own adjoining bathroom. We appreciated the separate bar area with fridge and sink and a flow-through window to the kitchen. If you want a quiet, private place in the best area on the best Hawaiian island, this might be for you. That said, the house is vintage! Old school! They have upgraded two out of three of the bathrooms, and those are beautiful. Now the master bath and the kitchen need some serious TLC. It's all there, though: the turtles, the snorkeling, the whales breaching off your beautiful private space. I wouldn't trade all the luxury in the world for this paradise. We feel blessed that the owners (we've never met) shared this special place with us for a couple weeks. Mahalo!

                                                                  We look forward to your next stay. Sue

                                                                  We spent Thanksgiving week here, and it was an amazing week. The location of this house is outstanding. You can actually snorkel right in front of the house. It's not a good lazing beach as its pretty rocky, but if you exit the driveway and go right, there is an awesome sandy beach a 3 minute walk down the road. There is a another great sandy beach a 2 minute walk to the left. Either way, you can't go wrong. The house was clean, cozy, and was entirely comfortable, with fantastic views. After a day of action we would hole up, have dinner in and just hang. Full kitchen cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal with ease. It was truly one of our favorite holidays ever. Thanks so much Sue and Clark! We love your little slice of heaven!
