We stayed at Makani Sands #309 for 8 nights. We were a group of 8 (max occupancy), but it did not feel crowded. Our kids chose to sleep on the floor (carpeted--kind of rare in a tropical location, but welcome), so we did not utilize the pullout sofa. Had we done so, there would have been enough beds for all.... More

We stayed at Makani Sands for two weeks in March. Located in Honokawai, Makani Sands is a small condo with around 30 units. All the units are owned and it is not part of a timeshare. The units are spacious, clean and all oceanfront. Each unit has washer, dryer, dishwashers which are great. As it is an older building, it... More

We shared a 3 bedroom condo, #305, with our daughter, son-in-law and 7 year old grandson for a full week in June 2013. It was perfect for us. Our favorite place was the lanai off the living area, facing the beach and the ocean. The grounds here are very nice and immaculately groomed. The location is perfect; lots of places... More

Stayed with family in a 3 BR condo in March 2013. The upkeep of the area surrounding the ocean was immaculate. The lawns looked great, with tiki torches lit in the evenings. Use of a BBQ gas grill was available, with lawn chairs. The ocean out front had a number of sea turtles, but little in the way of beach.... More
