Spectacular Makena Surf Luxury Prime Ocean Front Condo

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 12 nights


About the property

Luxury, Prime View Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Privacy, seclusion, and awe inspiring views.

These are just some of the most talked about joys of the Makena Surf, on Maui's southwest coast. Here is the Maui that lovers seek to find, on a magnificent, meandering coastline. Right in front of you, humpback whales cavort in their winter home. While behind you beckon the activities of a richly appointed resort, including two swimming pools, four tennis courts, and just beyond, the fairways of the Makena and Wailea Golf Courses.

During the spring and summer of 2016 several units in our building will be going through extensive remodels. There will be noise in the area between 8 AM and 5 PM. Monday through Saturday. Typically the noise will not be heard inside the unit, but with the doors open or on the lanai, you will hear it. If you plan on being on the beach, golf links or the pool during the day, this is a great opportunity to get a luxury unit at a great discount.

At Makena Surf, your fully remodeled air conditioned apartment is oceanfront and features all of the luxury amenities. Including wet bar, and spacious private lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Molikini Island to the West. Plus a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, washer/dryer, housekeeping and concierge services.

Yet as pampering as Makena Surf is, you're just minutes from Maui's primitive side. Explore deserted beaches. Snorkel in vacant bays. Enjoy all that Maui offers for the truly adventurous.

Makena Surf - Simply the Best!

About Jim Osgood

Our family has loved their visits to our condo on Maui. We originally bought the unit in 1988 when my wife was pregnant with our youngest child. It has been a wonderful get away for us and we have tons of fabulous memories. We are happy to be able to share this wonderful experience with our guests.

Jim Osgood purchased this condo in 1983

Why Jim Osgood chose Wailea

The seclusion and luxury of Makena Surf allows us to relax and get away from the rush-rush of the world. Our unit is only feet from the ocean providing us with amazing ocean views, especially nice during whale watching season! It is an easy drive into the shops and restaurants in Wailea and Kihei.

What makes this condo unique

Makena Surf is a wonderful get-away, yet close enough to fine dining, golf, tennis and right on the beach for us to enjoy all the activities we choose. It is in a great location for jogging/walking, which we do every morning. With a full designer remodel we can enjoy our time in paradise in first class luxury. (Not all Makena Surf units have been upgraded. Make sure to ask. It makes a big difference!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Makena Surf is old Hawaii...calm, peaceful, respectful of history. A place to just "be". We have stayed several times in Jim's condo; he is the perfect host! The view is not to be believed...lots of lanai time. We have seen some amazing whale action. The remodeled kitchen and baths are nicely done. The beach and main pool are steps away. Jim provides all the amenities...umbrellas, beach chairs, mats, etc. I noticed that one guest talked about elevators! Not old style! Just rent a ground floor unit if that is an issue. Big Beach is just down the road. Several great restaurants in Wailea, minutes away, as well as shopping big and small.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could need for a vacation. Condo had a well stocked kitchen if you decide to cook. We had not planned to eat in much. Just breakfast. But with the view, beach, snorkeling. We did not want to leave.

Thank you!

Gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We come to Maui once a year and this has been by far our favorite rental. Waking up to the magnificent views of the ocean from the front room and balcony are truly priceless. This unit has the best views in the complex and is perfect for a family or couple (we travelled with our two teenage girls and had plenty of room to stretch out). The beach is just a few steps from the condo and was not crowded despite it being a holiday week. Jim was very responsive and helpful with the entire rental process. The best part is that the condo is very clean and well equipped. We stayed over Thanksgiving and the kitchen was very organized and had every utensil, serving bowls, baking sheets, and pots and pans that we needed. We rarely left to eat out because we were so comfortable in the unit. The sheets and bedding were very comfortable and the complex values its peace and quiet which meant we slept 9-10 hrs a night!!!! Thank you Jim for hosting us. We will be back.

We hate to say too much so that we are sure to get it next time. Great in every way. Shouldn't the turtles have name tags? Can't recommend it highly enough.

A very peaceful and quiet condo unit.

  • 4 of 5

The view was spectacular. We watched turtles swim right out in front of our unit every morning. The sunsets were spectacular.... however this time of year (May) the sun sets behind the island of Lanai. The grounds were impeccable. Beautiful lush foliage and very well maintained.

The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans.... which made it easy to cook at the unit.

The only downfall was the pool. This is NOT a kid friendly residence. We brought our 9 and 11 year old and were utterly disappointed to see actual signs up at the pool saying "no pool toys allowed", "no horseplay", "no games such as Marco Polo". We ended up renting a room at a nearby resort so our kids could actually play in the pool.

Overall, if you are an older couple looking for peace and quiet then this is the place, otherwise go to a resort.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

From the front row seat to watch turtles swimming in to the rocks to nibble on algae, easy access to the beach, well equipped kitchen and extraordinary entry garden - this condo covers all the bases. Hope to return!

Very Good

  • 5 of 5

Makena Surf Condo F304 is the perfect lodging for adults and families. The condo is clean, well appointed, stocked very well with essentials and kitchen equipment, beautiful view right on the ocean, close to two quiet beaches. Your host Jim is quick to respond to any needs and provides a wonderful list of off the beaten path restaurants and activities. I would definitely stay in this place again.
