The developer seems to have spared… well, lots of expenses, actually. Like the endless concrete stairs at every turn, cheap-looking fixtures, etc. Some of the units are fairly nice inside, some are not. We’ve never felt very warm toward Makahuena. The location out on the point will expose you to lots of sea spray-laden wind, so don’t expect the windows to stay clean. Those winds, however, tend to keep the units cool. There are eight different floor plans, so it’s hard to say if you’ll get a good one. Second floor units are better for views, whereas many first-floor units are partly below ground. 2/2 units (1,157–1,217 sq. ft.) are $233–$509, 3/3 units (1,380 sq. ft.) are $341–$569. The second agent listed has some units with better prices.

What Readers Have to Say

“Our family just returned from 11 days on the Big Island during which I used your book extensively. I had found your guides to be an excellent reference source on a previous trip, and bought the updated version for this one. Like before, I really appreciated the sound advice on activities as well as places to stay and eat…we had a truly memorable trip that we will talk about for years to come…Thank you for doing such a superior job of reviewing and explaining all the facets of the Big Island. I don’t know when I’ll be going again, but I do know I’ll be buying another copy of your book when I do.”
