Our girl’s getaway was perfect! We came as 3 generations – grandma (me) – mother – and 2 granddaughters ages 15 & 18 and we were delighted with the beauty of the beach and our accommodations! The condo is stocked with everything a family needs and is very close to grocery stores and restaurants. We enjoyed Lahaina, the sunrise on Haleakala, the Maui Winery and a Luau in Wailea. Coming home to the “perfect” beach and condo was wonderful. Thanks for sharing your condo with us and we hope to return again!
Blessings to you both,
Phyllis, Dawn, Madison and Haley
Excellent location right on the beach. Everything we could possibly have needed was there, including full size fridge, oven and even boogie boards. Highly recommend this location if you are going to visit multiple towns as it is conveniently located between Lahaina and Wailea.
The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They even stocked the fridge with some traditional Hawaiian treats including fruit, juice, pastries, coffee, and chocolates.
I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone that wants a nice place to stay with the ability to eat in or out and doesn't want to pay hotel prices.
My friend and I have a tradition of a weekend or a few days together away from family obligations, just purely to relax, unwind and reset. This started with smaller trips close to home but this year we decided to splurge and go to Maui. I cannot tell you how grateful we felt to have stumbled upon this condo! It was exactly what we wanted and needed. We found that we mostly enjoyed swimming on this beach and lounging in the sand here. This is a beautiful beach away from the crowds. There are miles and miles of beach to walk on or slowly jog! This is a really special spot with a view of the ocean and Haleakalā from the Lana’i. We felt so loved and cared for with the amazing attention to detail, the comfortable beds, the breakfast muffins, all of it! So special! We plan to come back again. Thank you so much Phil and Cris. We are restored!
Dear Phil and Cris,
I have been on Maui 6 times – the first time was at the (now defunct) Maui Lu back in 1979 when I took my mom on a 10 day vacation. I’ve stayed at Puamana, Kihei and at the Kanai A’ Nalu and Maalaea Kai condos at Maalaea. Each time I walked the 2.5 miles of Sugar Beach and each time I passed Makani A Kai I thought “I’d love to stay there – it seems like the perfect spot.” And ... it was!
I celebrated my 60th birthday, and Mother’s Day with my family. My husband and I also celebrated our upcoming 30 year anniversary so we took care of all the “celebratory business” while here.
Your condo is beautiful, well equipped comfortable, clean and oh so homey! We enjoyed Cris’ paintings and your son’s photography very much.
Each day we played in the ocean, read books with our feet in the sand, shared “good mornings” with fellow sunrise beach walkers and watched the many turtles feast on the plant life of the sea.
Thank you for the ease of making the reservations, and checking in on us once here. Haycraft Park was entertaining – fun to meet the local folk.
We certainly hope to return. Randy said, “now don’t go telling everyone about this place” in fear it may not be available when we’d like it. ☺ But that would be selfish – will leave a great online review. I’m telling everybody! ☺

A wonderful condo. Lovely decorations, Everything you need to enjoy your holiday. We loved every minute! Very relaxing and super area. Owners left us a lovely gift basket of fruit juiuce and chocolets for our arrival. A good central area to explore the island. Whales watched from the beach and good snorking further south down the coast. Turtles spotted from the beach too. Binoculars in the cottage came in very handy. Highly recommend this condo.
We had an awesome time in Maui and the condo exceeded our expectations. From the coffee and treats you left so we didn't have to stop on the way in, to everything extra, like soap shampoo and conditioner in both bathrooms, and the laundry stuff as well. There were beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, games (we did play Sorry, that was fun!) and an incredibly stocked kitchen.
The beach right in front of the condo was great, we saw lots of turtles, and got great pictures of the sunrise. The laundry was very convenient and we used the grill as well. The location was perfect for getting to everything. We took surfing lessons just up the road in Lahaina, drove to Hana and beyond, went out snorkeling with the Pacific Whale Foundation right down the street, spent time in shopping in Lahaina and Paia and visited Slaughterhouse Beach, the Red Sand Beach (incredible!!), Big Beach, Little Beach, Black Sand Beach and more! On the last day we drove up to the winery to sample some wine before hitting the airport.
Our daughter was very comfortable in the extra room, which was so nice with it's own slider to the Lanai, that we were tempted to swap with her. And my son had no complaints on the pull out couch in the living room. We loved having coffee on the Lanai. We found the hoses outside to wash off the sand before coming back in the condo. And the laundry really was great for drying the beach towels at the end of the day. We found the quarters, soap pods and dryer sheers for the laundry, which we were grateful to use so we didn't have to buy stuff we couldn't hope to finish. No problems at all with the Wi-Fi, but we cannot comment on the beautiful large TV as we never even turned it on. Now that's a vacation to write home about!! As we were packing up, we even found the post cards and stamps you left. My wife had already bought a card, but we did use a stamp and our daughter grabbed a card and stamp as well.
Thanks again for all the extra touches in the condo, you really did think of everything!
If you are one of those people (like me) who search review sites to find the perfect fit, there is no need to continue your search. This condo has it all! Phil and Cris have thought of every detail that you might need on your dream vacation. They made the process of reserving easy and were readily available with any questions we had. They went above and beyond to make our holiday the best we’ve ever had! We are a family of 4 and this condo was the perfect homebase for our week in Maui. Each of our teenagers had their own space. The location is central to so many areas of Maui and yet right on a beautiful quiet beach.
