The Makena Surf condos might be the most perfect beach condo we've every stayed in. It is on a small, secluded beach. The view from our room, 207B was over-the-top with the beach and water, perhaps just 20 yards in front of our lanai. Great views of West Maui, Molikini and Kaho'olawe. Post card sunsets every night. As a matter of fact, you could see couples getting married and/or families doing professional photography shoots every night ... it is that pretty.
The unit has a lanai, though a bit shallow with a gas grill, lounge chair and table that seats six. Every meal we ate at the condo was outside on the lanai. The property has 2 pools, beautiful vegetation and a large, varied herb garden for those cooks in the family. The location just south of Wailea was probably the most convenient spot to get to all the key spots on Maui in 30 to 45 minutes.
If you scuba dive, dive boats to Molikini leave from the Kehei landing, just 10 minutes from the condo. There was even a couple of small reefs for snorkling just off the beach.
The unit was large, well laid out and very comfortable. It was recently upgraded with granite counters, etc. If I absolutely had to find one opportunity for improvement, it was about time to replace the carpet in the main living area. That said, Aloha Luxury Properties and Jonathan were responsive and very helpful from booking through departure.
I'm not sure how it could have been more perfect. Highly, highly recommended.
