Makena Surf, A Destination Residence

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The condo was old but well maintained. The bedroom & bathrooms could use a face lift but the location and view were unbeatable! The property grounds are also well maintained and beautifully landscaped. The staff was friendly and daily cleaning service is provided.

This was a nice surprise! Large, comfortable, clean condo opening right onto a grassy area before the beach. View was beautiful and there is a large beach. It was a well furnished condo and had several walking areas and showers to rinse the sand off. A great choice!

Love this place- we've been there multiple times and it never fails to be excellent.

A unique experience to watch sunsets from the lanai ...

If south Maui is your destination and your not looking for a high end resort hotel with all the crowds of people then this is the answer. Oceanfront view with a beach just steps away. Swim to a destination for snorkel tours and just take in all the beauty.

We stayed at Makena Surf in unit 204A and the condo exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect the view was like a post card. The unit is fully equipped right down to the beach towels. We had a couple of minor issues when the with ac stopped working and the propane tank running empty however the maintenance staff quickly resolved the problems. The cleaning staff did a great job as well. I have stayed at the Ritz and the Fairmont in the past and prefer the Makena Surf hands down. I will be definitely be back.

Private, secluded beach with best snorkeling and then 4 miles to Big Beach, our personal favorite beach on Maui! 15 mins to Kehei and the touristy bunch of restaurants and activities. So best of both worlds for our family that likes our own space and privacy and doesn't like being packed in with everyone else. Location, location, location needs were all met!

The kitchen and the view were gorgeous. As soon as you open the door, you were greeted by a unbelievable ocean view. The unit needs some updating but it was very clean and had EVERYTHING that we needed. All we had to do was put the key in the door and bring groceries.

This was a perfect place for a family vacation. We wanted to b right by the beach and cook rather than eat out. The condo had an incredible ocean view with its own BBQ grill in the lanai, washer/dryer w detergent, fully equipped kitchen (I mean, fully fully equipped). We fired the grill at least 4 times. When we ran out go a gas, the service man came immediately and switched out the propane gas. The beach is a private beach perfect for boogie boarding/ body boarding. It's just steps away from the unit. I don't think the beach can be accessed by the public, so it's pretty much u and a few others at a given time. The condo unit came with a beach parasol, chairs... Came very handy. My main criticism is that of the maid service. For our last night of the stay, they didn't even make the beds or clean the bathroom. Later I found out from the management that it was a light linen/ towel change only day. They told me at the time of booking that we get a full maid service daily. My interpretation of a full service is room cleaning, not just towel change. The resort later told me that I need to specify that I want a full cleaning daily. Also, despite our request for a scheduled maid service, they showed at a various time. Oh and they will charge u an extra person fee whether or not you request fot a roll-away bed.

2 small issues, the condo did not have a bbq at the condo as the pictures show, 1 call and 2 days later we had a bbq. The other was no umbrella on back patio, it gets hot in the afternoon. The condo inside was as advertised beautiful everything you might want. The view is amazing. Location could not be better, watch whales, sunsets, walk to the beach. The best vacation ever.

Spacious condo, great beach access (more secluded than a "hotel" or resort type beach), full kitchen was great for cookingour own meals, great sunset views.
