Our Condo vs. a Maui Hotel...

Benefits of staying in our condos instead of a hotel:

  • More space - Our spacious condos give you more room to spread out, especially helpful for families traveling with children.
  • There is a private BBQ area located on the ocean, return to your private lanai in your condo and enjoy your meal outside on the ocean.
  • Price - Condos at Makani Sands, Maui, cost less per night than most Maui hotels.
  • Condo grounds - Smaller property allows you to enjoy your vacation without a large amount of people. Pool lounge chairs are available. Quiet hours enable you to have a restful quiet vacation.
  • Sleep in - If you like to sleep in and your partner doesn't, they can go to another room and not disturb you.

Why Makani Sands??

  • We are a small quiet complex that gives you the feel of Maui. It is not a large resort with a lot of people. You can actually hear the ocean, smell the flowers, and truly relax on your vacation.
  • Sunsets are special at Makani Sands. Get to know fellow guests while enjoying your favorite beverage at the end of a perfect day. No two sunsets are alike. See turtles swimming in front of you while sailboats and the islands of Lanai and Molokai frame one of the most beautiful natural sights you will ever see. No two sunsets are the same.
  • No need to drive. You can walk to bars, restaurants, and stores. There is even a farmers market three days a week. Get to know the island.

Recent Testimonials

""I loved every minute I stayed at Makani Sands. The unit was spotless and cheery. The view with the breaching whales outstanding. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. The condo is within walking distance to stores, eating places, and the beach. I loved it all and will return!"

"What a wonderful location for our Maui vacation! The condo is in a great area to whale watch and close enough to get to restaurants and beaches. Very clean and comfortable condo, it had everything we needed for our time in Maui."
Larry H.

"We have stayed at Makani Sands every year for the past 28 years. We always stay over the New Years holiday and into early February. Some years we have also stayed in the summer or fall. We love being right on the ocean for the view, watching the whales, turtles and hearing the ocean sounds... We see the same people each year from different states and Canada. These people are our “Maui family”. We look forward to seeing them and spending time together."
Marjorie & Victor L.
