About the area

Makena Surf is 5 minutes south of Wailea in South Maui. There are two world-class beaches steps from our condo and many more that are a 5-10 minute drive. If you love the ocean, this is the place for you. But the excellent restaurants and shops of Wailea are a short drive away. We are a 20-30 minute drive from the airport. Po-olenalena Beach and Park, Chang's Beach, Secret Beach, Wedding Beach Gannons is a 15 minute walk and there are many fine restaurants, such as Nick's Fish Market and Ko, that are a 5 minute drive away.

Getting around

Best to rent a car, but you can use Uber as well.

A Fabulous Place to Stay on one of Maui's Best Beaches
This beautiful condo was ideal for our multi-generational family ages 2- 71. Everything needed for the beach was included: chairs, towels, toys, boogie boards. Most of our beach time was spent at the nearby little cove beach (Chang’s) where the children enjoyed the tide pools and sand while adults snorkeled among the green sea turtles and a variety of fish. This beach and the larger one nearby, offered moderate surf for boogie boarding. There were interesting routes for walking and running. The property is clean and very well maintained with lovely gardens. The well equipped kitchen, with a view of the ocean, made meal prep easy and enjoyable. It even came with a rice cooker, slow cooker, waffle iron and many condiments. We made good use of the nice bar-b-que, dining table and comfortable chairs on the lanai. The high chair was perfect for the 2 year old. We appreciated the excellent guide books about Maui and reference books on Hawaii fish and other wildlife. This very comfortable condo is tastefully furnished and decorated. We all had a wonderful vacation and hope to return.

Absolutely spectacular setting!
We can't imagine a better place to just sit outside and enjoy Hawaii -- crashing waves, whales spouting, and beautiful sunsets! It was hard to ever leave the condo! The kitchen was well equipped, including a private BBQ. We can't wait to go back!

Seek your Bliss
This is undoubtedly one of the finest experiences one could have on Maui. This property is situated in the most strategic location, encompassing a view that most people only get to experience in magazines and travel brochures. Extremely comfortable, quiet and equipped like home. (French press and a coffee grinder . . . Heaven!) This is a perfect getaway for couples or a family, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Everyone has plenty of privacy and room to spread out. Even the lanais (yes, 2 lanais!) have amazing outdoor furniture for quiet relaxation and group gatherings for watching turtles and whales in the sea below. This is a third floor penthouse. No folks tromping around above you, just the sound of the surf, trade winds gently blowing and birds singing in this paradise. This may sound like a commercial, but everything here is amazing! One very important piece to consider when renting a vacation rental by owner is the cleanliness and the support you receive from the owner. This condo is neat and clean, well organized with the perfect layout. The vast majority of condos have bedrooms in the rear, seldom can you find a condo with a bedroom with an ocean view. This home has 2 bedrooms with amazing views that open onto the lanais. There is nothing like being lulled to sleep by the rhythmic, hypnotic sound of the surf. With ceiling fans and light trade winds we never turned on the air conditioning. Together we made up a pretty fastidious group, each noticing how clean this home is. Susan, the owner, was there for us every step of the way. She graciously answered all of our questions, explained everything so well we didn't have any issues or glitches. (Well, we did forget to bring the gate opener that she previously sent and we were taken care of by a delightful woman, Irene.) She oversees the property was extremely kind and thoughtful. Irene walked us through the home upon our arrival, once again adding to the charm knowing in the first minute of entering that we had made the correct decision. You will notice in the pictures many dive boats and kayaks. People from all over Maui take these tours as the most amazing snorkeling and turtle watching is right in from of this house! It was an easy walk to the small beach where we snorkeled every morning before the boats would arrive. What an incredible way to begin the day! Susan and Irene, Mahalo nui loa. This is a 5 star property. Thanks for giving us the space to create life long memories. Aloha, Stuart

Well appointed condo for family trip
Fabulous stay at well appointed condo. Clean, spacious, and beautiful views. Photos don't do this place justice. Walked to 2 different beaches for snorkeling, body boarding, sand castle building, and relaxing-- all beach gear was available at condo and all we needed was suit and sunscreen. Grandma hit water aerobics at the pool and can't stop talking about it. Susan, the owner, and Irene, caretaker, were both very helpful and provided excellent communication and customer service. Susan graciously converted the twin beds in the 3rd bedroom into a king and everyone was happy. We'd recommend to anyone looking for some quiet and relaxing time within walking distance to beaches. Wailea boardwalk and big beach are nearby via foot or car. Turtles and whales were seen from both lanais. Sunsets were fabulous. We definitely plan to return.

Beautiful property, terrific owners
We've been to Maui numerous times and have generally stayed in high end hotels though we've done vacation rentals elsewhere. This location can't be beat and the condo is spectacular, exceptionally well outfitted for vacationers and professionally managed. The layout worked well for our family with older/adult children. It would also be excellent for couples vacationing together. We like to read, swim, walk, play games and we like to be next to the ocean - this place was ideal. The kitchen is surprisingly well outfitted and cooking together there was a joy. Easy access to Wailea restaurants and La Pelouse was also appreciated. We generally go to Big Beach but were so happy with the beach at Makena Surf that we barely got in the car. We found it so easy and pleasant to cook that we only ate out twice - at Migrant and Morimoto's, both of which we'd recommend for dinner. We also enjoyed hiking in the interior and lunch in Makawao where we'd gone for malasadas (but Komoda's was closed). The condo's lanais are lovely and a great place for morning coffee, reading and early evening cocktails. There were a few minor glitches with the condo but they were taken care of quickly and professionally. The owners have anticipated almost any question one could have in the form of a well thought out and well referenced notebook. We liked the views, the quiet and the cleanliness and comfort of this condo. The owners have outfitted it at a high level - nice sheets and towels, tasteful furniture, new carpeting, great kitchen and bath supplies. They have managed to make you feel like you're being welcomed into their home and like you're not imposing. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We can't wait to go back

Just Wonderful!
Our 3-generation, family of 6 stayed at this condo during the Thanksgiving holiday and had a great time. The Makena Surf condos are located within steps to two very nice beaches with great reefs for snorkeling. The condo itself is well-maintained and fully stocked with everything you might need during your vacation. The owner went out of her way to make sure that we were comfortable- she even bought a brand new high chair for our toddler! It was such a treat to go to sleep listening to the sound of waves and to wake up with the unbelievable ocean view. Our days were spent at the beach and sightseeing. There were several large resorts and golf course within 5-10 minutes drive as well as a high-end shopping center nearby. Considering the age of our group ranged from 1.5 to 65 years old, I would say that there was definitely something fun to do for everyone. If you're looking for a comfortable, convenient, and relaxing place to spend your vacation, this is the place!
