"I cannot imagine staying in a nicer place than this unit. Absolutely everything was top of the line and it felt like a luxury hotel. The only problem we had were with the toilets but they were promptly fixed by the management so should not be a problem again. One of the best things is that it had all the beach necessities needed - beach chairs, boogie boards, towels, even some snorkel gear. The location on the beach is so close that you feel like you are on the beach while relaxing on the comfy lounge chairs on the balcony. The sunsets are amazing and we got to watch several weddings and photography sessions as the beach is so lovely. The unit is also right next to the pool and tennis court and the grounds of the complex are beautiful. The beach felt like your own private beach since there were usually only a few families out at a time. Snorkeling is great right off the beach and you will most certainly see giant turtles! Would definitely stay in this unit again on our next trip to Maui!"

"This was our 8th trip to Maui with our two boys (now 17 and 20), my tenth, and my wife has been there many more times than that. We've stayed in Kihei, we've stayed in Kaanapali (once) and several times oceanfront in a Makena condo. This stay in Sue's beautiful home in this very special place was by far the best of them all. We arrived in the dark and woke up the first morning to the gentle sound of waves and a predawn view that may be unmatched in all Hawai'i -- without even getting out of bed! It just got better and better from there. It's not just that the home is oceanfront, it truly is on one of the prettiest pieces of coastline on the island. The "old Hawaii" look and feel of the home is just right -- casual, comfortable and well appointed. This is the first place we've ever stayed that we were as content to just hang out at home as to go touring or to the beach. Coffee in the lounge chairs at dawn, and sunsets in those same chairs, margaritas in hand, were the perfect way to start and finish a day. The outdoor dining room, under a tree and over the water, was the perfect place for a barbecued dinner while the stars came out. Sue was an absolute pleasure to deal with as was Katarina, her property manager and caretaker. We will be back."

"We spent 9 days in this unit and had an incredible vacation. The location of Makena Surf was perfect for us. It is secluded yet an easy drive to many great parks, snorkeling beaches, shops and restaurants. Also, great area to walk and/or run each morning! We prefer the quiet and low key areas when on vacation. The pools, grounds, beach and snorkeling directly in front of the unit are fabulous. Maria, the property manager, was also so easy to reach and helpful. We loved the welcome visit basket full of so many local goodies.
The unit is very spacious and the lanai was our favorite hangout. It is well stocked with the beach, bath and kitchen essentials that you would need for your stay. I feel I must mention the negatives.The unit is very attractive but in need of updating at this price point. The kitchen and baths are quite dated, especially the master. We found the master bedroom to get quite stuffy and the bathroom almost hot at times.
Would we return? Most definitely just may select another unit at Makena Surf...hopefully one that Maria manages."

"I can't say enough about this condo unit. We stayed for 1 week in April 2015. It was beautiful from the furnishings to the view looking out over the ocean. 2 couples shared the condo and we had all the privacy and comforts of home. Right on the beach which is what we were looking for. The kitchen was well stocked. I want to come back and stay longer."
