starsThis traditional Hawaiian home was better than we could have imagined!
Guest Joan D. (United States) Date of stay 06/06/16

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 spectacular 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.

Guests love to travel 18 (Philadelphia Area) Date of stay 07/11/13Review Submitted 08/02/13

Seven of us ages 18 to 69 stayed at this wonderful property to celebrate my upcoming 70th birthday. While the website pictures were beautiful, they didn't do justice to the actual beauty of the property. We were blown away by the reality of what we found when we arrived. Even before we unpacked the car, we went down to the water and there were two large turtles swimming right in front of us to greet us! Although we had lots of activities scheduled during our week stay, we hated leaving the house. Our favorite activity was spending time on the stone terrace starring at the view in front of the house. Watching the surf crash on the rocks was mesmerizing. We loved sitting on the porch or on the terrace eating our meals or having a beer or glass of wine. The house is very well outfitted, the Lu'uwais thought of everything a family would need to enjoy themselves and be comfortable. There is a beach literally next door and probably five others within five minutes away. They are all set up with a big grill outside and the kitchen is also well equipped. The only problem is that all our family keeps asking when we can go back. The Lu'uwais are great hosts.

starsAmazing house!!

Guest Pill88 (United States) Date of stay 05/17/13Review Submitted 06/02/13

I am so happy we rented this property. We were in Maui for our wedding and had the immediate family stay at the house with us. The wedding location was on the same street just 7 houses down, so it was super convenient to stay here. The property is spacious with 4 large bedrooms. It has a fully stocked kitchen and we hosted small get-togethers for our guests throughout the week. Everyone was blown away by how beautiful the house and the view was.  You have a view of the ocean from every room and it was amazing to just sit in the backyard with a cup of coffee and enjoy the ocean breeze. Staying here really made our wedding extra special and we are already talking about planning another trip to Maui in order to stay here again!

Guest Paul and Karen (Saanichton,B.C.) Date of stay 12/27/12Review Submitted 02/09/13

The location was terrific, with access to some of the best snorkeling, swimming and paddle boarding. Not too mention the turtle sightings!The home is wonderful just had a great family feel to it. Clean and very comfortable, great kitchen and outdoor deck. When we asked the family what was the best part of the holiday they all agreed the house and its location! Thanks again for a great holiday!

starsStanford reunion @ Luuwai's
Guest Bill (Kula, Maui) Date of stay 10/22/12Review Submitted 11/15/12

Our Stanford fraternity got together at Luuwai's Makena house for the second time in five years. Once again the experience was all it could be. The house is immaculate, well supplied and furnished and the sunsets are to die for. The snorkeling in front featured excellent visibility and even more turtles than the first time we came. We had three catered dinners on the large front lawn overlooking Makena bay. All want to return in a few years and do it all again.
