Why Sue Johnson chose Makena
My parents built this home in 1969, when the only access was a dirt road. They lived here year round, but had no mail or paper delivery for many years. Its a lovely, quiet location in a pristine area, which my husband and I regularly update, and keep decorated in the Hawaiian style.
What makes this House unique
Snorkeling, turtle and whale viewing (in winter months) is awesome from our location. We can also swim off the left front side of our property. Our oceanfront location with sunset views overlooking 3 islands and 2 peninsulas is truly unparalleled.

Great home for a family vacation!
Sue and Clark's home in Makena was perfect for our family of six. It's a beautiful home in a near-perfect location. The best snorkeling, the best sunsets. Beautifully equipped indoors and out. Sue and Clark--and their local property managers Jim and Katarina were completely available and responsive to our needs. The setting is quiet and reasonably private, yet it is very close to the hotels and restaurants just up the road. It really is as the picture shows, just yards from the beach. The home has been in the family for two generations, and their love of the place shows. We recommend this home without reservation! Larry and Kim
A slice of paradise
We have travel to Maui about 30 times before discovering this gem located in such an idyllic setting!!! Our grandchildren loved discovering the tide pools and snorkeling right from the bay in front of the house. Located near an old stone church and great beach for wave hopping it is in a quiet neighborhood. This house offers privacy along a street that is perfect to walk or run along. Inside you have 3 beds and 3 bathes. The kitchen overlooks the spacious view of the ocean. Enjoy meals on your deck while watching the sunset. You are right on the ocean. We will stay here every time we come to Maui and recommend it to everyone we can!!!!
Thanks for the lovely review Julie.
I am always gratified when our guests enjoy the special aspects which our home and our location have to offer. I am just very happy that your grandchildren discovered the tide pools, and that you enjoyed the environment and the local culture in our wonderful Makena.
I look forward to having you back again soon. Sue
A little piece of Maui heaven
An amazingly tranquil and gorgeous setting for this cute, cottage like home. My husband and 4 daughters had the trip of a lifetime and will not forget it. The natural beauty of Hawaii is all there, right in the back yard. Very close to beaches and snorkeling and shopping and restaurants. We drank our coffee in the morning at the table with the mongoose, geckos, birds and sea turtles who munched on the sea grass in the cove. Will be back for sure!
This home is just what we were dreaming of for our last trip to Hawaii. We came here as a combined celebration of our 60th anniversary and my wife's 80th birthday.
A quiet and peasant location and comfortable, welcoming home. We saw turtles, many fish, and even a distant whale and great sunsets every night.
We saw more sea turtles within a few blocks of this quiet neighborhood than we have seen in all our other trips to the islands combined! Perfect!
Thanks for the review, Tesla.
This is what Hawaii is about
This is a special home. It reminds me of a family home on a lake I knew of as a child with that carefree indoor/outdoor kind of living. It is casual and grows on you the longer you stay. Outside is beautiful landscaping in a breathtaking setting where you could easily spend the entire day relaxing, snorkeling, and swimming. My family of 6 adults were here for 10 days and we did not leave the property (except for food) for the first 4 days. Wear your reef shoes to get to the water as there are rocks that take a bit of getting used to. We rented paddle boards and a 2 person kayak very nearby and paddled them easily back to the house. A day trip to Molokini boarded us right on the beach just a 5 minute walk up the street. Beautiful sunsets and moonsets every day. I must have taken 50+ photos in varying shades of light and dark of the small tree-accented rocky spit that extends into the water out back. You can’t take a bad photo here. Underwater are beautiful reef fish, corals and turtles. If you like this kind of setting and marine environment, you will appreciate this place. I hope to return some day.
Thank you, Nancy, for this gracious review. I'm always happy when folks enjoy the special beauty of this lovely spot.
We own a 40 foot dog leg parcel of land, to the left of our home,that is directly on the ocean. You can enter the ocean from this area wearing beach shoes in the morning when the ocean is calm.Maximum Occupancy Six Persons.
