Our family of four rented the Makena Surf unit F208 through Destination Resorts for two weeks in March 2013, and we were blown away. The unit has been recently renovated (travertine floors, conrcrete counters in the kitchen, granite in the bath rooms). Electronic dimming system throughout with indirect lighting in all the ceilings and even on the lanai. Sliding glass doors on the ocean side of the unit collapse together and disappear into the wall - so you really feel that you are outside when in the kitchen and living area. We are very disciminating travelers, and we could not find fault in F208. The unit was very quiet (Never heard any neighbours upstairs or down, and felt very private). Amazing turtle snorkeling directly out front, and our favourite Maui beach as well - Pool'enena, with great swimming and boogie boarding.
The unit was so nice, we decided to check the guest book to see if any celebrities had stayed in it - and found an entry by very prominent US politician and his wife in 2010!
Destination Resorts was fabulous to us - when a couple of minor things needed attention they delt with them immediately.
Every morning we got up to the wonderful unubstructed ocean front view and said 'wow'. Everyday we saw either whales or dolphins cavorting offshore. We had a late flight on our last day, but couldn't get a late checkout since our unit was already rented that night. The fabulous Destination Resorts houskeeping staff found another (beautiful) unit for us to stay in until late afternoon when we left for the airport. We would not hesitate to stay in F208 again.
