About the property

Gorgeous Beachfront Luxury 2 Bed 2 Bath Maui Condo; Newly Remodeled; Refurnished

The Makena Surf is a "can't miss" location. This third-floor oceanfront unit of the Makena Surf has one of the most visually stunning and relaxing views on Maui. Renovated and refurnished in November of 2017, unit B302 is located on the top floor of the only beachfront building in the Makena Surf and provides the easiest access to the beach in all of Maui.

Located in the oceanfront B Building, the entire unit faces outwards over the Pacific Ocean through a twenty-five foot length glass door. Through the door, the lanai has one of the most resplendent views of Pacific Ocean that makes even the locals say, "wow." The lanai is the perfect place to relax and find peace watching the ocean, easily spot whales playing in the Pacific, gaze on several of Maui's colorful and sumptuous sunsets, or looking at the starry sky of the Pacific at night.

Walking back through the lanai, the condo provides its own luxuries. A modern and attractively furnished living room is the perfect place to spend your morning drinking coffee and watching the ocean waves come ashore. The kitchen is fully equipped for some home cooking on the road and the BBQ is a very popular option among guests. Each night you will return to your bedroom knowing that each bedroom has top-of-the-line mattresses and bedding, providing you with the best in softness and comfort. Each bedroom has its own separate full bathroom. The living room has brand new Crate and Barrel furnishings, with a Super Comfort Queen-Size Memory Foam Sleeper Bed in the sofa. Not to miss a game or an episode, the living room also features a grounded entertainment center with a 60-inch LED thin screen television (for minimal impact on space), an Apple TV, surround sound speakers, and a "take one, leave one" book library. The second bedroom also has a RokuTV for Netflix and AmazonTV watching.

Just out the front door of the B Building are a private pool and hot tub, perfect for floating in the sun or soaking your body after a day spent on the sand. Adjacent to the pool are two well-maintained tennis courts and a tropical garden.

Details of the recent remodel and refurnishing:

As part of the remodel, the living room carpet and entrance hallway tile were replaced by "Fall White" shaded tile and the cedar ceiling in the living room was whitewashed. These two alterations give the condo additional brightness and color, as well as a light, open air feeling during the day. The interior of the condo was being completely repainted to a lighter and less creamy color, as well. The old lamp-style chandelier was replaced by modern 60" multi-circular dimmable LED chandelier.

The condo and lanai were wholly refurnished to create a modern and updated take on a beachfront condo. The lanai now has light gray wicker lounge chairs with full length blue body cushions and an adjustable matching grey cylindrical neck/leg pillow. The vast majority of the condominium is being furnished by Crate and Barrel, though some pieces will not arrive until after Thanksgiving. As part of the refurnishing, the living room was being modernized with a new entertainment system and 65" ultra-thin screen LED TV and 18" Samsung soundbar to minimize any impact on space. Both bedrooms were refurnished with new bed frames, as well updated with new carpet and decor.

The master bedroom bedframe was replaced with a Crate and Barrel Hayden King Storage bed with a solid wood dark oak frame. The televisions have been removed from both bedrooms in favor of decorations and mirrors.

The complexion of this unit was wholly altered to be brighter, more modern, more attractive, and far more comfortable than it was in the past.

About Peter Shenkin

The Shenkin Family has been in love with Maui since the 1950's, when Budd and Ann began spending lengths of time here as young children. Since then, they have passed their love of Hawaii, and Maui in particular, to the rest of their family, including one child who lives on Maui.

As a family, we are proud to participate in Maui's small community and we are proud to own at the Makena Surf. We want to show all of the sincere and relaxing beauty of Maui and her beaches, and we hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Peter Shenkin purchased this condo in 2006

Why Peter Shenkin chose Wailea

The Makena Surf is the premier destination for condo travelers on Maui. It offers the best views of the Pacific Ocean from each unit, especially the B Building, which is the only ocean front condo building in South Maui. This unit is on the top floor of the B Building and has every advantage to it: being on the top floor, oceanfront, exclusive, quiet, modern, and elegant.

The setting was perfect, with a beautiful quiet beach and picturesque sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne in a lovely setting with a lanai overlooking the water with spectacular sunsets. The condo was stocked with everything we needed, and we enjoyed grilling on the lanai. The beach was quiet with excellent snorkeling and proximity to activities. Fantastic stay!

Amazing views and quick access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo comfortably housed 4 adults and two small children. The view from the lanai was superb, 100% ocean. Beautiful quiet beach within a quick walk down the stairs to the sand. Clean and comfortable inside.

south Maui at its best!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the unit for a family vacation for my brother and family. The unit was in exceptional condition, with every touch considered. It was very clean, well appointed with new everything, welcome Champagne, and even sunscreen! The view is second to none, and the owner did a great job checking on us and handling several small issues as they arose. I highly recommend this condo for any planned stay in south Maui. We'll be back!

Photos of breaching whales taken right from the balcony of our room!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time in Maui. We love Makena Surf and B-302 met all of our needs. Peter was so kind and helpful, the unit was so nice, the view incredible. I was even able to take pictures of breaching whales from the balcony - where can you do that?!? We loved every bit of our stay

Breathtaking! Sun, sand, and the endless sound of waves.. HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5

Peter was a wonderful host who came to our rescue when a reservation for another condo cancelled on us with 4 days notice for a holiday week. After working with the Homeaway emergency team (who were great during a very stressful situation) we found this gorgeous, updated unit in Makena Surf (South Maui). Every detail from the moment we arrived was perfect, including the complimentary wine. My family of four (two children 10 and 5) had so much fun!! A GORGEOUS sandy beach is right out front, steps from the unit -- you will not need to go anywhere else. But if you choose to leave, there are lots of other wonderful areas for snorkeling and seeing sea turtles. We even had two sea turtles swim with us right in front of the condo. There are also countless wonders of Maui to explore like Road to Hana (get the Gypsy Guide APP) and hiking Haleakala.

The condo is stocked with everything you need for fun inside and out! Our kids enjoyed the body boards, sand toys, and we all enjoyed beach chairs, towels, and snorkel gear. Did I mention the pools and hot tubs? We loved to night swim and take a dip when we were done with the beach for the day.

My husband and I love to cook and we enjoyed breakfast, lunch and several dinners in the unit. We stocked up with fresh fish (Eskimo Candy Fish Market in Kihei -- but get there early!), fruits and vegetables from farmers markets, and snacks from the gourmet markets in Wailea. The kitchen and gas grill have everything you need, and you'll always love eating on the patio with the gorgeous views. When we went out we had awesome sunset dinners at MonkeyPod Kitchen, Mama's Fish House, and enjoyed Thanksgiving buffet at Gannon's (which is within walking distance).

The beds are very comfortable and you'll sleep to the crashing sound of waves! You'll sleep amazing after all the fun outside. What could be better??!!? Well maybe falling asleep on the patio chairs watching the millions of stars in the sky. We even saw two shooting stars! This place is magical!

Thanks Peter for all your hospitality! We hope to visit again!
