“Our stay at Lu"uwai's traditional Hawaiian home was better than we could have imagined!”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Makena Landing with our five daughters and their spouses/ boyfriends. It was our first trip to Hawaii and we were so happy with the house and location. The view is spectactular and we all enjoyed hanging out at the stone pier with the waves crashing right at our feet. The house was clean and so comfortable for our large group. The sea turtles swimming right up to the rocks were fun to watch and we loved being able to jump in the water from our backyard and snorkel for hours. The beach which was a short swim or walk from the house was uncrowded and serene. We also were just a short drive from markets and restaurants. We could not have enjoyed our trip more and would love to return.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in February 2016

There is no better view on Maui plus you are away from the condo crowds. Right on the water so you can hear the waves all night long, which is very relaxing. Great location as you are only 5 minutes from the Wailea hotels, good restaurants and golf courses but away from the noise. Walk 100 yards and you are at Makena Landing for good swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. A very nice traditional Hawaiian home that is rustic vs high tech but very comfortable. Helen is very responsive and easy to work with. We come back every year so there can't be a better recommendation than that.

“Perfect Maui Ocean Front Vacation”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Having walked the path between the crowded Wailea resorts and crowded beaches, it emphasized just what a great opportunity we had staying at Lu'uwai's Makena Landing. It was much more of a Maui experience than a resort experience, and was great for our 2 families to do our own cooking and eat outside when we wanted. Turtles were hard to miss both on the beach and in the water. It must be the best Maui location because this is where the tour boats bring people to snorkel, Kayak and SCUBA, so it is busy on the water in the bay, especially in the morning. It also seemed rare to have an actual oceanfront yard. I'm not sure what else we could have asked of the house that it did not provide. Best value in Maui. I hesitate to give 5 stars because I don't want it to be booked next time I go to stay there. Be prepared for a steep driveway. I would advise to let the family out at the top before going down; easier on your nerves and on the rental car.

“Best of the Best”
Reviewed 26 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We would love to give a great review for the best time. Our family had gathered for Thanksgiving and enjoying our great time together. This beautiful home is in the best location possible with sweeping views of the ocean from every room. Who could ask for anything more than to walk out of the house and jump in the ocean! As a large family we enjoyed the large facilities, beautiful kitchen, large lana'i and great yard to play. The house has beautiful views, amazing extras and the best is the spectacular view. We would recommend this beautiful home to everyone we know.

“Omg! Amazing location!!!!!!”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

This is the most amazing location if you don't have young kids!!! You can jump off the back patio and snorkel with turtles, amazing coral, fish, eels, and sea life! The view is to die for- amazing sunsets and sunrises- protected from the winds- wonderful quiet neighborhood- walking distance to makena landing where they do tons of kayak tours, snorkeling yours, and scuba diving! If you want to chill with a stunning view and don't care about a sandy beach or a super nasty dirty kitchen - this is the place for you!! The bathrooms and kitchen were all NASTY!!!!!!! Left over food particles and nasty stuff in the fridge, dirty counters behind the sink, ants, bugs, lizard poop-- bathroom I don't think has ever been scrubed- dirty showers and sinks. The floors in the house are super clean, beds are comfortable and sheets are clean, they provide beach towels and there is a wonderful patio out back! The owner did send a cleaner but she only really cleaned the downstairs bathroom! Oh well- we still had a great stay and I would go there again of its cleaned better and we did not have little kids with us. The sound of the waves crashing at night is amazing.

Management Response

We are very sorry this guest had some issues at our property. They did ask that the housekeeper return to redo the downstairs bathroom, which she did. But they did not mention any other difficulties. If they had she would have been more than happy to accommodate them while she was there.

While luxury hotels may have better luck hermetically sealing rooms, at accommodations such as ours, although we do have the property sprayed for insects quarterly, we simply can not control all critters that thrive in our sub-tropical environment.

This property has been known as a “kids paradise” with many activities available on the property and surrounding areas. But as with all children, they should be supervised, especially when they are near any body of water. No other guest has mentioned any problems with little children and we have had all age groups use the house, from infants to teenagers, all without incident.

We can see that the guests enjoyed the beauty of the location and it’s ambiance of old Hawaii. We make every effort to provide our guests with a wonderful Maui experience and happy to see that they would come again in the future.
