Visited at the end of July, 2016 with another 18 members of the family to celebrate 60th Wedding Anniversary of "Mom and Dad". Wonderful place, very nice green space at the front. ALL units facing the ocean. Marie and Bert are VERY friendly and helpful.

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!

We have been coming to Makani Sands since our daughter was 2 years old she is now 12 . We absolutely love coming here. Great beach the views are amazing but my all time favorite is seeing the honu's I just love to watch them swim. If your looking for a kid friendly place then Makani sands is your place.:)

This place is a great place to wind down. Quiet, close to shops and restaurant's and we also have a visitor every time we arrive. The view is to die for. We also are lucky to be able to see whales in front of this condo. I also get a great night sleep with the comfortable bed in this condo.... More

Fish tacos! Well prepared, delicious. The waiter was excellent, willing to adjust the menu. Hula pie, a must on any visit. This is a great restaurant. Location...on the beach. Go at sunset. Good service. It's not cheap but you won't go wrong on this place. We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at Makani Sands in a three-bedroom apartment with our two daughters, one of our daughter's husband and our grand daughter in October this year. One of our daughter's had booked the apartment well in advance of our arrival so the cost of our five-night stay was reasonable. The apartment block is right on the ocean... More

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Makani Sands #203 for a 5 night vacation in November. The complex is older and not in one of the main resort areas, but it’s a great option for an affordable stay with direct ocean front view and a small sandy beach for easy water entry. The unit itself is very... More

The views from 202 & seeing sea turtles up close on the beach were highlights of this trip to Maui. The weather was unusually hot and humid, with no trade winds, which made this business trip that required much outdoor walking challenging and physically demanding. Thankful for Makani Sands as a little oasis of relaxation and enjoyment. The decor was... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week. It's in a great location. Close to everything and a little farmers and coffee shop within walking distance. We had unit 208 which had an updated kitchen but not updated bathroom. Which means the bathroom is quite dated. Each unit is privately owned so you can't really go by the pictures.... More
