  • Exceptional !!!

    "Jim’s condo at Makena Surf F304 is outstanding! We’ve stayed at a number of Maui condos over the past 25 years, and spent our annual trip over the last decade in condos in Wailea Elua and Polo Beach. This condo beats them all. The inside is well decorated and has all of the amenities you’d expect (and then some). But, what really makes the unit exceptional is the oceanfront view. The entire front of the condo is glass, with glass sliding doors in the center. Step through the sliding doors and the lanai is right above the ocean shore. The view can’t be beat. It was great to be able to experience Maui right from the lanai. There are a few turtles that live around the reef out front, and they pop up every few minutes. Snorkeling provides an even closer encounter. There were always whales in sight somewhere across the horizon. It’s one thing to get a photo of a beautiful sunset, but it’s even better when a whale breaks the surface with the setting sun behind it. A couple of early evenings were spent watching a baby whale learning how to breach. The Makena Surf grounds are beautifully landscaped with cobble paths running through the foliage. The resort was probably fairly full, but we couldn’t tell. We occasionally encountered other people, but the layout made it feel like there were only a few of us there. The pool was never crowded and the beach was only about half full on its busiest day. Jim was easy to work with and everything was as promised. We highly recommend this condo."

  • Magical Makena

    "Home, sipping kona coffee on our "lanai", I still can hear the ocean and birds, the light on the palms and cliffs at sunrise is forever part of me. Another mahalo for making our vacation such a memorable one. You were great to work with, early arrival And so quick to solve Internet glitch, great info in binder, perfect taste in decor and such well thought out things in place for a home away from home. I might have to shower outside under the hose near our sago Palm:) we were very blessed to have happened upon the oceanfront cottage at makena in our vrbo search and there is no question if we are ever back on maui, it will be our place to stay. A true snorkeler/kayaker nirvana. Fondly, Marty Carlsen"

  • 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."

  • Absolutely amazing!

    "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!"
