We had a great time in this unit. It was very roomy for 3 adult and 2 children. The kitchen is fully equipped and it even has a washer/dryer! The lanai was nice to sit on and look over the beach and water. Beach chairs are provided in the unit as well. Great location with the beach just steps away.... More

The location of Makena Surf property is a wonderful spot for a family vacation or romantic getaway. During a recent family vacation we rented two condos and really enjoyed our stay here. The condo complex is located within steps of a quiet beach, near Poolenalena Park, not very far from Big Beach, with great snorkeling opportunities. Both condo units were... More

Our family had a wonderful experience while celebrating the Christmas holiday week 2015. With renting two units, we experienced two different floor plans that satisfied with a great Hawaiian feel and comfortable living with both. The property has great amenities that includes a clean pool, hot tub, and beach equipment that only allowed us to enjoy the beautiful views, beaches,... More

My wife and I have frequently rented condos through Destination Resorts at their Makena Surf complex. This past Christmas we rented two units and had our children and grandchildren join us. On Christmas Eve we were treated to an incredible surprise party by the Destination Resorts/Makena Surf housekeeping staff. They came to our condo with gifts of their traditional home... More

We stayed in Condo E303 and I'd recommend it to anyone! The condo was spectacular and the view from the porch was incredible. The property is great - every condo has easy access to beautiful Makena Surf Beach, which has some of the islands best snorkeling. The pool is great, and the property is very well maintained by the pleasant... More

First trip to Maui for our family. Picked the absolute best place to stay! Oceanfront Condo B302 is beautiful and very well appointed and maintained. Incredible sunsets and right on the beach. This unit has everything you could want. (There are 3 beach chairs and a 4th would have made it perfect for us.) There are also two beach umbrellas... More

We stayed in bldg B of the Makena Surf condos. Makena Surf has a great beach in front with good snorkeling (a short swim to the infamous 'Turtle Town') and easy to put a paddleboard or kayak in the water. I recommend staying in Bldg B since access to the bigger beach and proximity to a pool (albeit the smaller... More

The Makena Surf is a large group of condos of various sizes. Units close to the beach have wonderful views. All units have easy access to one of two pools. The snorkeling around the point is awesome. This is a great place to enjoy the beach and water fun, for the whole family.
