About Jan Hendrix
We love this neighborhood! The spacious lots, the amazing views, the peace and quiet - these are the elements of our Maui Shangri-La. We are excited to be able to share this very special property with you.
Jan Hendrix purchased this Estate in 2007
Why Jan Hendrix chose Historic Lahaina Front Street
The property has amazing unobstructed views. The neighborhood is very upscale, and this house is a super value-oriented offering compared to the mansions surrounding it! This is a vacation spot for 'real people' looking for serenity and relaxation. It is best suited for independent minded travelers. Please check the guest comments to see how many people have loved it here over the years.
What makes this Estate unique
The neighborhood has a 7 mile running and walking trail to which the home offers easy access. It's so easy to visit all of Maui from this location. It's about 2 miles to Lahaina, so having an elegant dinner in Lahaina is as easy as can be.

Away from the crowds
Jans home was immaculate and comfortable. Fantastic views! We felt like we had found our little piece of paradise, we will be back!!
Truly a hidden gem
Jan and her dog kiwi were wonderful during our stay on the island of Maui. Everything we needed was available in the shared space/kitchen if we choose to stay in one night or cook or own breakfast. The view was outstanding, master suite was immaculate, and her house was perfectly located as it was not in the hustle and bustle of Lahaina but located far enough from the main road where you couldn't even hear traffic. Absolutely perfect!
A beautiful relaxing stay
We were very happy with our stay. Jan really treated us well. Very considerate and helpful. We looked forward to coming back to the house and unwinding at the end of a busy "touring Maui" day. The views are simply amazing!
I loved my stay here at Makila! The home & grounds are gorgeous & it’s so peaceful up above the busy ness of Front street yet the views are incredible! Jan was wonderfully accommodating and had great tips on places to go, eat,etc. and lastly..Kiwi! So sweet & fun to play fetch with... sure made missing my little fur pup at home easier. Aloha Kiwi & Mahalo Jan! Shirlee
Shirlee - thank you so much! You were a delight.
Serene and Clean
This property is special but know up front that the owner lives in one wing of the home and you stay in the other side of the home. This isn't for everyone. That being said; you hear the birds and feel the breeze from your lanai. We spent lots of time here when we weren't exploring! The view of the ocean is panoramic, you can see the waves even though you are about 1/2 mile from the ocean. There is a paved trail for walkers/runners right above the home which we went on every morning. You are welcome to use the AC in your suite. The suite provides a walk in closet with cubbies and tons of storage, double recliner, double sink and walk in shower. Guests have a couple shelves in the frig and freezer, a couple shelves in cabinet for food. Don't go overboard at Costco! Jan is respectful of your wishes for privacy with herself and her awesome Welsh Terrier Kiwi. We enjoyed them both! Cons: you have to drive 1 mile or so to get to the ocean and bring everything with you. Shared kitchen and living (if you aren't open to that), you have to drive to Lahaina for shops and restaurants. For us personally, it was lovely and relaxing! :)
Aloha Lisa! Thank you for the 5 star review. I am concerned that you felt you had to warn folks that this is a shared space. I do lay this out very specifically in my property description on the listing and also, the property is not on "Instant Book" so that I can send a detailed email to those making an inquiry about the house - to tell them about the shared spaces and the kitchen use... My other properties are traditional vacation rental properties, so they don't need special treatment and they are all on "Instant Book". Also, I can make as much space as you need in the fridge and freezer - no need to scrimp. My expectation is that my guests are experienced, independent travelers who want to enjoy all the delights Maui has to offer, including our rich and varied culinary traditions. About access - most folks want to take the provided beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, etc., so they would drive to the beach anyway. If I want to go someplace in Lahaina, I plan on about 10 minutes to get there. Up to 20 minutes for northern destinations like Kapalua. But the peace and quiet of 6 acres in a sparsely populated area far outweighs any drive time, IMHO! ;-)
The property was just as described in the rental information with the exception that the views could not truly be described (more of a must see in person). If we come back to Maui we will be staying here again if available. Her pup made being away from our fur babies a bit more bearable.
Located in a private neighborhood on a hill near historic Lahaina and the resorts of Ka'anapali, this lovely plantation style home on 6 acres offers huge views, and is a wonderful place to really relax and unwind. The location provides easy access to all of Maui. It's a private sanctuary with amazing views and a rural feeling while offering easy access to town and all the best activities of Maui. The home has all the furnishings and equipment you need to be at home here, to relax deeply and enjoy the good life.
