“Makani a Kai A7”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Cris and Phil,

We have truly enjoyed your wonderful condo and your hospitality! Maui is so much fun, and we have had an adventure every day. We explored all over the island and found so many great beaches and tasty little local eateries, and it was always nice to come back to our “home base” at the end of the day.

Mahalo!
