  • Fabulous location. OK unit.

    "Let me start with the location. It's wonderful! Within the property, it's an easy walk from the parking lots (but secluded from street noise), steps to the pool, and a few steps further to the beach. Each morning, you have front row seats to kayakers and snorkelers checking out turtle town. Each night, the sun sets right there. The beach is great - not too crowded, good (super fine) sand, gentle waves, excellent snorkeling and boogie boarding. On the island, it's in a rather secluded location and one of the drier and less windy parts of the island. It's a good starting place for a morning jog (a mile to the beach path that goes another 3+ miles). The only down side is the drive to the super market (~15 minutes), but it's worth it to be away from the hustle and bustle. We had a great experience with the rental managers. When we had issues on Saturday morning and Saturday night, Maria was immediately accessible, professional, and resolved the problems quickly. It was also really nice to arrive to a gift basket full of Maui treats. We found the unit itself somewhat run down. It could benefit in both aesthetic and function from a renovation. At the very least, it needs a deep clean (clean carpets, wipe grime off cabinets and ceiling fans, wipe down baseboards, clean out tub jets). Bugs were a bit of a problem inside and out. For the price, we were expecting more of a luxury condo feel than a beach cottage feel, but it's definitely the latter. That said, the unit has a lot of perks. It's well sound proofed, and we almost never heard any neighbors. It came stocked with toilet paper, soap (bath, hand, laundry, dish), foil, zip lock bags, etc. The kitchen had a pretty good range of appliances and tools, including a blender. There are lots of towels and plenty of closet space for clothes or drying. The activity closet was stocked with a giant pool noodle, a fantastic beach umbrella, beach chairs, and it looked like balls and rackets. I'd definitely go back to Makena Surf. I'm on the fence about whether I'd go back to this particular unit."

  • A week in Paradise

    "A Previous reviewer got it right .......WOW!. We had such a wonderful time at the condo. Our expectations were high on what to expect but they were exceeded in every way. From the moment we opened the door and could see the BLUE ocean to the short stroll to the beach along the patio’s paradise like walkway followed by rounding the corner to the beach that provided the most amazing breathtaking panoramic view of everything Hawaii. Then of course came sunset, viewed almost daily from the large Lanai, an ever changing canvas throughout the sunset and every evening starting with a clean sheet. The Condo itself was very elegant without being stuffy in the least, it allowed us to lay back with ample room and comfort for each of the 5 in our party. All creature comforts and more were provided. The restaurants we found to be very good and returned to least a couple of times were the the Cafe ole, 808 and the Sansei. Can't wait to get back there! Mahalo"

  • The Best!

    "Words cannot express the beauty of this condo. From the moment you walk in the feelingi is expansive and grand (but liveable). The ocean virtually surround you. The modern and fully equipped kitchen is a gormand's delight. Walk 100 yards down the tropically landscaped pathway and you are on the beach. On the way, you pass one of the two pools that are abundantly furnished and offer you your choice of sun or shade. Add to this the wonderful services of Maria, the delightful property manager,and you have a perfect vacation."

  • Blown away!!!

    "This place was amazing! Can't beat the location!! So nice being so close to the beach. Great snorkeling. Beautiful condo. Nicely decorated and well cared for. Owners were wonderful! We departed for the island knowing 2 hurricanes were forecast during our stay. Owners kept in contact with us the entire time. They were available to answer our concerns and questions."
