Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, lovely, lovely. The longer we stayed the more we fell in love with the place and surroundings. We wanted a getaway spot to celebrate Grace's 50th birthday and this was it. We took a trip into busy Kihei to really appreciate the calm, the view, and the privacy. Your home has all the amenities We found whale watching best between 4:30-6:00pm. You have some great beaches nearby but we enjoyed the bluff and the deck more. Thank you so much.

This is an incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house and would highly recommend it. It has everything you need. It is an escape to paradise. The house is in a quiet location while being only 15-20 minutes from anything you would need or want. Love it!

Sweet spot

  • 4 of 5

Makena Bay House is located just minutes from Makena Landing and Makena Beach, on the southwest side of Maui. This is the driest part of the island, which almost guarantees the weather will be excellent. Within a mile are at least three choice snorkeling sites. There are also many wonderful restaurants in Wailea and Kihei. The house is located right on the water, fronted by volcanic rock. Sitting and looking at the sea can be hypnotic and is always relaxing. This is a perfect place for fans of water sports. The downstairs cabana features a faucet for washing off gear, a warm shower for washing off salt water, and a hot tub for warming up after being in the chilly Pacific. The upstairs living space is quite comfortable and the kitchen is very nicely equipped. We definitely hope to return.

Paradise Found !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and wanted to stay forever. Quiet and private with easy access to three beaches. Sunsets fantastic. Snorkeling was great and easy walking to beaches. House was very comfortable with everything we needed. We stopped going out to dinner to enjoy the view each night from the deck !

What you see is what you get.

Location-location. Coffee on the deck in the morning, a very short walk for snorkeling at one of the best spots on Maui. The location is very quite and sunsets are right in front. We will come back.

Excellent Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

The view from this home is so stunning, we did not want to leave the place. Snorkeling in the bay nearby was great, and then just shower outside and pop into the hot tub when you get back.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Although small, it's a jewel of a property! Situated on the rocky edge of the Makena Landing, it offers beautiful views and plenty of entertainment watching the large snorkel cats and boats unload the hoards of tourists that pay to sail to this bay to snorkel when it's right outside you lanai!

Plenty of restaurants and a very open and airy Shops at Wailea make this a perfect vacation spot for romance and relaxation!

One caution is that the stairs leading up to the house are very narrow and steep! I would not recommend this for anyone with knee or back problems. Other than that, I love this little beach bungalow! I'm a 10 year returning guest and wouldn't stay anywhere else!
