We go every February and only stay at Makena Surf. Absolutely beautiful and the amenities are outstanding. Whales and turtles right outside your patio. Sunsets not to missed. A truly amazing spot on Maui!

Aside from a very poor mattress in the master and a few dead cockroaches that were never cleaned up, we found the unit to be quite lovely. We did have an air conditioning problem that was easily solved if anyone had left directions.

We stayed at the Wailea point not the Makena Surf and the service was great when anything was needed to be looked after they were more than gracious to accommodate. The unit was cleaned once a week at the same time so we could plan in advance. The unit was well equip and in good repair

Amazing week spent at Makena Surf, Unit F109. First trip to Maui. Perfect location to experience Maui beach life, sunsets and quality family time. The kids opted for a condo rather than a resort experience. Good choice! The best snorkeling on Maui is right off your Lanai.

Well fitted out and peaceful condo on the water. Can't enter the ocean directly out the front but its only a 3 minute walk to beach access. You need a car for local shops and restaurants. A transfer is available but, when we wanted to use it for dinner, the last service was at 9pm. Wailea Golf Club is nearby...

I travel frequently for work and leisure and have high expectations. There is absolutely nothing that could have been done better. The property and staff were exceptional and the location is second to none.

Fantastic property. Beautiful beach. Can't wait to come back again. Huge condo. State of the art audio/video system. Impeccably appointed. Exceeded our expectations. Better value than the Four Seasons or Kea Lani Hotels.

condo E-103 was very nice. We had lovely views and saw whales right in front one evening. Beautiful sunsets. Wonderful pool which could have been a little warmer but was very uncrowded. Beautiful grounds.

When your 'twenty-something' children tell you that as you walk into the appartment, you know its a winner. And app A102 is a winner. Large and spacious. Luxurious living area with views out to the beach and ocean. Two bedrooms; one king size bed, the other two singles. Two bathrooms - a little dated compared to the rest of the...
