"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."

"From the minute we walked in, we knew we were in heaven!! Unit F204 at Makena Surf has everything you want in a Maui vacation and more. The property is in the perfect location - facing the ocean with views of Molikini and other islands. Every where you look, you can see the ocean!! I have to say that this is a prime location on the island as the beaches and snorkeling are great with plenty of sea turtles to see. Every morning, multiple excursions were in our coves to prove how good of a snorkeling area it was. The owner has spent the time to think of any amenity a vacationer would need and provide it - fully stocked kitchen with "extras", nice and plentiful linens, beach chairs, towels, cooler and umbrella, paper products, etc. The unit is very clean and has all the space you need to unpack and settle in. All you have to do is pack your clothes, buy food and you're all set! Maria is extremely helpful both before and after you arrive to ensure you have everything you need - she even has a very thoughtful "welcome basket" full of goodies!! There are plenty of nice restaurants and shopping within a few minute drive of Makena Surf and easy paths to take for running. The central location allows you to get to all parts of the island quickly and come back to the quiet, serene environment that Makena Surf has to offer. Coffee in the morning and sunsets in the evening are amazing from the lanai. This unit was so nice that we had a hard time leaving it to explore other parts of the island. While the photos are accurate of this unit, they don't do it justice."
