"We have worked with several property managers on Kauai since purchasing our condominium in Princeville, but Makana is by far the most professional and responsive in managing our property. Living off island, we wanted to work with a company that closely interfaces with customers, insists on only the highest standard for maintenance and cleanliness, and provides wise counsel to owners. Christopher, Christine, and the Makana team have gone above and beyond our highest expectations. They always make us feel like we are first priority on their “to do” list; we never feel as if we are out of touch with the state of our property, even when we are so far away from it. Makana’s support is definitely second to none and we truly appreciate everything they do for us."

"My family and I am so happy to be clients of Makana Kauai Properties.  They are not only property managers, they are also “relationship” managers, taking care of us as owners and our guests who visit Kauai. Makana Kauai Properties is always attentive to any needs that arise of our guests and the property itself.  That caring attitude gives us as owners peace of mind that our investment is in capable, professionally managed hands. Makana Kauai Properties truly embodies the “aloha” spirit of Hawaii."

"I chose Makana Kauai because of a referral from a trusted friend and I am glad I did! I wanted a smaller boutique company who would focus on my mission and vision for my property. Makana Property owner and the associates take the time to care for your property so well that you feel like your home is their only property. They listened and consult with me for expenses, they organize fair bids for work, and keep me posted on progress. Makana Properties worked with my existing housekeeper and yard maintenance company and they inspect my property often even when guests are not due for arrival. I appreciate their attention to detail and also their frequent communication. I trust their judgement and oversight and couldn’t be happier. Wish I had found them a long time ago! I would highly recommend Makana Kauai for management of any property!"
