“Amazing exactly as described”
Reviewed September 26, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Cant say enough about Bill & his wife they were super accommodating to us, It was my 25th anniversary and they were kind enough to allow me to send some items i wanted there before arrival and also was super kind enough to even pick up a bottle of Champagne that i wanted waiting for us as well and some gorgeous flowers that they picked out for me so they could also be waiting as a surprise to my wife you just cant get more "Aloha" then that... great people. The accommodations was everything we expected if not more, from the little items you typically forget ..to a fishing pole that you wished you could have brought ! Clean, comfortable bed and views that cant be described but only witnessed, turtles frolicking in the water RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE UNIT , everyday we would swim out with the turtles CRAZY ! Beach is quite the way i like it but minutes from other beaches as well as great shopping and restaurants we stayed for 7 days and moved to the West side ...To busy for me i missed this stay after we left it ! Don't pass this up enjoy.

“Great condo with great view”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great location (you need a car) and a very nice condo in nice grounds with a perfect view of the sea and shore from it;'s balcony. Plenty of room and a lot of thought has been put into making sure you have all you need for your stay. On arrival there is some coffee, fruit and juice and biscuits to ensure you do not starve.They provide dish wash tabs, washing powder and even quarters for the laundry machines. There are books and DVDs and board games. Plenty of instructions on the 'house rules'. All in all a pleasurable part of our holiday.

“Great honeymoon location”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Makani A Kai, B5 was a great choice for our stay in Maui. It was in a central location basically 10-30 minutes away from everything on the island (except the Road to Hana which is hours long no matter what) and the condo was right on the water with a great view and at any given time the beach had no more than 5 other people on it. Most of the time it was just me and my husband and. Maybe 2 other people. Sea turtles were swimming in the water just in front of the condo on a daily basis and it was so relaxing and fun just to spend time at the condo. Booking and coordinating with Bill was a breeze. They provided fruit and coffee and cookies and my husbands fell in love with POG (juice drink Bill provided). They have everything you need there (snorkel, flippers, chairs, umbrella, boogie board, ice chest and even sun hats) for activities on the beach. Amazing view and it has a small but effective A/C unit which some rentals do not have. Great view from the upstairs loft/bedroom to wake up to in the mornings. It is a two level condo (loft bedroom and bathroom upstairs) on the second floor, which I was not sure I wanted at first because I wanted to be as "on the beach" as possible, but the height gives you the view the first floor would not have and it is extremely easy to access the beach. It's just down stairs. There is a swimming pool for the condos that was always kept clean (although we never used it with the beach right there). There were well maintained lounge chairs and the parking lot had ample parking space. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our third time to Maui, but our first time in a condo. Location is great; not crowded at all and great views! We were steps away from the beach and would have breakfast every morning on the balcony. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. We were welcomed with fresh fruit, cookies, bottled water, etc. We felt at home immediately. The owner also provided everything you could possibly need: bug spray, sunscreen, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. We would definitely come back to this condo!

“Great location, all the conveniences of home”

This condo is set in a great location with a fairly quiet beach. It sits at the end of a quiet road so not much traffic. It is next to a state park, though, and we had groups of local overnight campers next to the building. It might be better outside of summer when I assume they adhere to the "no overnight" camping signs! On most days, our kids were able to body surf ad enjoyed seeing turtles at the small reef in the water.
The condo was equipped with 4 sets of snorkel gear, body surfing boards and sand chairs--all of which we used and really appreciated having on-site. The view from the lanai was amazing and doesn't get any breeze, even on windy days. The layout of the rooms, the kitchen utensils and the starter food the owners left for us made this feel like a real home-away-from-home! Would definitely stay her e again!
