    Makani 'Akau is an oceanfront property that sits on the east side of Paia, facing west towards the sunset. The setting is just stunning! Your first view upon entering the gate is looking through the glass door, across the entry area and patio to the ocean framed by palms and the sandy beaches of Paia, Baldwin and Spreckelsville. The property is fenced and lined with vegetation on both sides to provide ample privacy. Makani Akau is walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in Paia.

    All rooms with the exception of the playroom and fourth bedroom face directly to the ocean! This home just completed a major remodel in early 2009, and has a lovely new interior, refinished swimming pool, new hot-tub, new landscaping, and a secured yard. The ground level has polished concrete floors to take advantage of the indoor/outdoor style of living. Large sliding doors can be folded back on both sides of the living area so that it seems that you are living outdoors.

    Between the house and the ocean is a 50 foot lap pool . The views are incredible!
    The ocean is rocky in front of the house, and therefore no ocean access from the property. The sandy beach of Paia Bay is within walking distance. Baldwin Beach is just a couple of minutes by car. The Pool is not fenced and children have to be supervised all the time.
