We visited several beaches and the best snorkeling we found was in our backyard! I saw turtles every day, many fish, an octopus, and a family of eels that live in the rocks near the entrance! (They are secluded and aren't in an area you will frequent). Not much of a beach when we visited but I understand the beachfront fluctuates with the season.
We stayed for 8 nights in unit 310. It’s a 3 bedroom 3.5 Bath. Five of us and we had plenty of room. The management team are Awesome! Clean grounds, pool etc. The unit needs a little tlc and some new furniture. The owner also has the AC on a six hour timer which is not very convenient when you have to get up during the night to turn it back on. Owner should definitely change that as well. I still give them 5 stars as We will definitely stay again when we return to Maui.
We, like many others, also love Makani Sands! Our party of 5 adults stayed in a 3 br, 2.5 ba two level unit on the third floor. What a view! From the lanai, we’d count 25-30 turtles cruising by all day long! Immaculately clean, wonderful and friendly staff, and any owners who are staying there at the time are a real hoot! Join them on the lanai at sunset with your bottle of wine to blow the conch shells! What aloha spirit. Ocean is steps away, Great beach. VERY safe and reef-protected, great for kids. Swim and snorkel with turtles! Convenient to stores, yet very quiet, peaceful. Small complex, insulated from the hustle and bustle of Maui. Try the natural food store across the street for best guacamole in town - half price at happy hour! We are going back in November. I could live here!…
We stayed at Makani Sands In March 2019 in Unit 210 and would recommend this place to stay. You cant get much closer to the sea,watching the whales,Turtles and the Ocean was just brilliant. You are short walk to eateries and shops,with a wood fire pizza just up the road is to die for.But be quick as he sells out real quick.The staff are outstanding and help out with anything you need.We had 6 adults in the apartment and had plenty of room. We will be back one day.
3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, ocean view. We had at least 1 rainbow every single day. Management folks very friendly, full timers also. Unit itself quite dated and needs some maintenance, not elderly friendly as there are stairs with poor hand rails, low height bed and toilets. Not too far from Safeway, restaurants and beaches.
