The folks that obviously live here are just way too loud for way too long at the pool..I'm sick of hearing their loud voices at the pool after only 2...

We stayed at Makani Sands condo #108. It was a beautiful, bottom floor condo right on the beach! We walked outside and the beach and ocean access was right there. We had an issue with our shower one morning, but when we came back it had been fixed and worked perfectly after that. The staff is super friendly especially Burt...

Everything was exactly as advertised. Unit 103 on the ground floor, was clean, everything worked, well equipped for a rental. The ice maker in the fridge was a nice bonus. Nice large shower, no tub. Kingsized comfy bed. Really nice to have all the comforts of home instead of a sterile hotel room and trying to find affordable places to...

We have stayed many times in several of the ground floor condos. All have been well equipped and within 50 feet of the beach. Decent snorkeling right out front of the condo with lots of fish and turtles. Enjoyed the nightly visit to the beach wall of the resident gigantic turtle aptly named Volkswagen. Bring your binoculars if you happen...

We stayed in room 207 and were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and apt appearance. The view was nothing short of amazing. We checked in, walked to the grocery store it was a 15 min walk and stocked up on breakfast fixings and dinners. The apt came with everything needed to cook we spent most of our breakfast and dinners...

My husband an I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary by taking our first trip to Maui. Makani Sands was the perfect place for us to stay. It's small, quiet, and within walking distance to good food, good coffee, and Ka'anapali. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The VIEW is amazing! We watched sea turtles swim...

This is the place to stay if you are visiting Maui. Right on the water, this block has a heated pool, lift and all the amenities you could need. The lady on the front desk is lovely and nothing is to much trouble. We watched large green sea turtles from our balcony 🙂 Loved it!
