Recent Makena reviews

  • Whales cavorting offshore! Need we say more?

    "Makena Surf is a super location to watch whales and snorkel. Far from the bustle of Lahaina. The lanai facing the ocean gives you views of Molokini off in the distance. Kitchen is very well equipped with beautiful counters and cupboards. Dish soap, paper towels, coffee, and a welcome basket of local treats! Everything you need to enjoy Maui -- gas grill, boogie boards, noodles, beach chairs, beach mats, beach towels. Literally, steps from the beach and snorkeling where turtles are frequently seen. Showers to rinse off sand and salt. Other amenities include pool and hot tub, tennis courts and herb garden. Minutes from fine dining at Longhis, great ice cream at Lapperts, Humunumu (you know that little state fish...), quick food at several places. Drive south 5 minutes and snorkel at Makena State Park (a protected natural area) to see every fish imaginable. We caught a glimpse of an octopus today! Hint for newbies: avoid sunburn by wearing a rash guard shirt and long yoga shorts when snorkeling."

  • Perfect Maui retreat

    "We were hoping for a beautiful place to relax, snorkel, and enjoy the view for a week's vacation, and this exceeded our expectations. The pictures are accurate and the view is amazing right from the lanai and all the windows. The pool and hot tub are right at the foot of the condo steps, and the beach is just a very short walk away. The property is immaculate, well-cared for, and Ali'i Resorts are professional and a pleasure to work with. We called them upon arrival, and Greg met us promptly and welcomed us with helpful information. The daily housekeeping people were friendly and efficient and kept the condo in great shape. There were a few units being remodeled in the building, but the noise was never very loud (we were on the beach most of the time anyway). And yes, a highlight was being right at "Turtle Town"! We saw large and small turtles out in front all day long. They don't seem bothered at all by snorkelers and were floating and being cleaned by smaller fish. Other snorkeling boats came every day too but the water and beach were not crowded. We had a wonderful time and are glad we chose to stay here, especially at the discounted rate during remodeling. (You definitely need a car as you are far away from commercial areas for restaurants and other activities.)"

  • Perfect Property

    "This was our 4th time staying at Makena Oceanfront Cottage. That sentence alone should tell you how we feel about the property. The location is great. The cottage is simple but has everything you could want, from the fully equipped kitchen to the hot tub on the lanai. And you get spectacular sunsets every night. If you are traveling to Maui you should definitely consider staying at Makena Oceanfront Cottage."

  • review of makena surf unit B-204

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This unit met our expectations. The kitchen was well equiped. The furnishings were fine. The unit has a great view and is only a short walk to the beach. Very relaxing. The only drawbacks were the lower dishwasher does not drain properly and the deck umbrella stand is badly rusted and needs to be replaced."
