Makena Surf B305 is a two-bedroom, two-bath condominium on the third floor of the 'B' building at Makena Surf; the Pacific Ocean is right before you, across a gorgeous sand beach. The beach is wonderful for snorkeling and has a large sea turtle population. The unit was completely redecorated in 2006, and it was upgraded again in 2015. The master bedroom has a standard king bed; the second bedroom can be used as a king bed or two extra-long twins.
The view of the ocean is unrestricted, and on a clear day Lanai, Molokai, West Maui, Kohoolawe, Molokini, and the Big Island are visible. In the early winter whales are frequently visible. The view is due west, and each sunset is spectacular. We have a gourmet kitchen with superb appliances and extensive equipment, including a state of the art induction cooktop and a large microwave/convection oven. The Makena Surf complex is the premier complex on Maui, and it is a gated community. The 'B' building is the only building in the complex on the sand beach. The TV is a 47 inch LCD with a DVD/Bluray player, brand new. Two smaller HDTVs are in the bedrooms with DVD/Bluray players. There is an iPod/iPhone player as well, with a Lightning adaptor.
Our lanai was completely redone in 2015, and it has new patio furniture and a new, small gas BBQ.
We bought this property together when we were still dating, and we have owned it since 1986 and through many years of marriage. The location is absolutely superb; there isn't another one like it anywhere. We are on a gorgeous, sandy beach with an unrestricted view of the Pacific Ocean and several islands. In the winter we see many whales and porpoises from the lanai. We love the water and snorkel right off of our own beach, not to mention using the tennis courts and local golf courses. Maui has become a sophisticated destination, but one with a comfortable, unpretentious attitude. Good restaurants are nearby, but we usually cook when we are on island and we have an extensively equipped kitchen. We barbeque often on the gas units provided by the complex. Makena Surf is very family friendly; we have our children and grandchildren with us often. It is one of the best vacation spots in the world.
There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean or eating breakfast in February watching the whales in the bay right before you.
My husband and I have stayed in this wonderful condo 4 times and each time we don't want to leave and come home. We love our stay in this comfortable, spacious condo. We cook most of our meals and enjoy the kitchen setting which looks out to the ocean. The kitchen is well equipped with top notch appliances and cookware. The bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnaced.
In addition, we enjoy the ocean, it's a short, scenic walk from the condo to the beach and we're able to swim in warm water. The ocean always seems to be warm and the beach is not busy. Other pluses include, well kept tennis courts, clean, good size pool and hot tub.
The owners of this condo take very good care of the place - we would recommend this condo to a friend. The property managers also provided some helpful tips for some great hikes.
This luxurious condo in Makena Surf is right next to Wailea is an easy 40 minutes from Kahului Airport. Stroll through the gorgeous tropical grounds on your way to the VIEW level of B building of Makena Surf.
This recently renovated condo is a paradise to behold. Two large bedrooms, two gorgeous spa-like bathrooms and very spacious open concept kitchen, dining and living area with double glass doors that open onto a full-length lanai. The Lanai has glass surrounds that frame a stunning view of the beach, huge coconut trees, boats, and rocky outcrops that house the local green turtles and tropical fish.
Late afternoon sunsets or early morning sunrises can be enjoyed in this perfect location. Wake up early to enjoy the cool tropical breezes and snorkeling in the calm waters of the Makena cove. Save the snoozing, shopping or sightseeing to later in the afternoon as the tradewinds pick up. Or just minutes aware dine or shop at The Shops at Grand Wailea or enjoy a cocktail at the Fairmont Kea Lani or Four Seasons Resort.
This condo is in Makena, a higher end, newer area of Maui that is quiet and set away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kihei or Lahaina. Pop into these two towns to see classic Hawaii and then come back to Makena for the peace and quiet.
There were 2 of us this time but we will be back with 2 children as it is the perfect location for them as well. We enjoyed the Old Lahaina Luau, Pride of Maui Molokini snorkeling tour and drove up the top of the Volcano. We also explored big beach, little beach and the nature preserve close by. A late lunch in Paia at Polli's Mexican Restaurant was excellent, as was happy hour at Cheeseburgers In Paradise (as well as the burgers) and Pupu Restaurant in downtown Kihei.
I would definitely recommend this gorgeous condo to one or two couples to share or a small family.
This property has everything we look for in a top notch, luxury vacation rental. Perfect location on one of the nicest beaches in Maui, incredible views looking out towards Molokini with grey whales breaching right out in front of us, gorgeous immaculately kept grounds and pool areas, and a short drive into Kihei for shopping etc. The owner has spared no expense in outfitting the unit with high quality furnishings and finishings, dishes, cutlery and cookware, along with plush bath towels, big beach towels, snorkels, boogie boards and the best beach chairs I've ever seen. Everything worked perfectly from big screen TV to high speed internet and iPod dock/stereo. As a property manager myself, I can honestly say this is one of the nicest places we've stayed and a full 5 stars for anyone interested in getting it right on your next trip to Maui!
Clean and spacious. Great artwork. Beautiful kitchen. Large lanai with unbelievable view/sunsets. Large white sand beach w/fantastic snorkeling (turtles, squid, eels) on both sides of bay. Condo complex perfectly maintained. We will be back!
Absolutely wonderful oceanfront condo! Property is beautifully maintained with flowers that make each morning a treat to walk the grounds. You can watch whales from the lanai and might even catch a newborn whale calf with its mother just off shore. The owner is accessible and pleasure to work with. All this and the sounds of the surf have brought us back every year for many years.
Makena is located just south of Wailea which is a major resort area and about ten minutes from Kihei, also a major resort area. Near Kihei is the Aquarium on Maui, which is a must-see experience, and immediately behind the condominium is Haleakala, another destination you must see either by car or by bike or by hiking.
