This property was perfect for our family of 4. Our boys loved playing on the beach and riding the waves all day with the provided boogie boards. The view is unmatched and the large doors opening up to the lanai was perfect for listening to the waves. The beach was never crowded and the waves were great for letting our kids play. We absolutely loved this property and will definitely be back! We watched the beautiful Maui sunset every night from the quiet and peaceful lanai. Thank you for sharing this beautiful property with us.
It was our first trip to Hawaii and naturally we wanted all to be perfect. Thanks to this amazing condo and location it was! Our family of four was overwhelmed by the view. The ocean and mountains were spectacular. The beach was private and quiet ... with perfect sand for our morning and evening strolls along the Pacific.
The snorkeling and turtle viewing was the real deal as we saw turtles each and every time we snorkeled. The condo is supplied with all the amenities a family would desire ... beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. Also no need to sweat the small stuff as the owners Mark & Cory along with Maria the property manager have all your needs covered (laundry detergent, bathroom necessities, cleaning supplies, paper towel, napkins, fully stocked kitchen, etc.). We were also surprised by the welcoming gift basket we found when we checked in! This unit deserves the Five star rating it perpetually receives!!
Thank you Mark, Cory, and Maria for the family vacation of a lifetime.

This was by far the best VRBO we stayed at in all of our years traveling to Hawaii. It is steps from a very soft sandy beach. The location is very quiet away from the crowds. The kitchen is very well furnished with all the kitchen utensils you need. The view out to the ocean from the lanai is outstanding. We had several dinners out on the lanai. Highly highly recommended!
My family and I had an excellent time at Makena Surf! The location is unbeatable: with the best view!! (think: perfect morning coffees on the lanai, beautiful sunsets every night, hearing the ocean waves from our beds); easy access to the great beach (which was not crowded, has perfect waves for kids to play/boogie board and great snorkeling); and close to stores/shopping if desired. The unit is exactly as presented, and it the best stocked kitchen we have ever had, which was a real treat! We actually cancelled our one dinner reservation because you couldn't beat watching the sunset on our own lanai! The complex also has two great big pools that my kids really enjoyed swimming in. The owner and property manager were both fantastic. This is our new favourite spot on Maui, and I hope to be back soon. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Maui condo! Everything was perfect and exactly as advertised! The sunsets were out of this world and the patio was a perfect place to enjoy them! So much so, that we rarely left for dinner! Our kids really enjoyed the beach - the snorkeling was amazing and the surf was perfect for boogie boarding. So rare to find both on the same beach! The condo had everything we expected, and more! Our stay was incredibly relaxing and we are already looking forward to our next visit! Mahalo to Maria and the fabulous owners of B-303!
Wonderful property, everything with ideal. Excellent communications
Condo was exactly as presented. You can not go wrong staying here.
We had a great time in Makena Surf B-303! Is was very clean, beautiful, comfortable…just amazing. We ate out on the lanai everyday, enjoying the beautiful view. The house was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need…from beach things to laundry soap and even special Maui snacks. We hope to stay again very soon.
Property is amazing! View is breathtaking.
Thank you Mark and Cory for sharing this special place! Our Family had a wonderful time and plan on coming back as soon as possible!
Thank you Maria for a seamless check in and welcome basket!
The property was amazing. The photos of the unit, while very accurate, don't do it justice. Mark & Cory (host) have a great place and were exceptional in timely responses to any questions. Maria (property/VRBO manager) was great too.
The unit had EVERYTHING we needed and then some (e.g., nice touch having the phone chargers on the nightstands in the master bedroom).
The sunsets from the back porch of the unit and beach were fantastic. My family took photos on a grassy section of the Makena Surf property (about a 2-3 min walk from the unit) and it was easily one of the prettiest views I'd ever seen.
We are a family of 4 with two teens. We love having a resort location/vibe AND having the space to move around in a unit. If you are looking for something in the SW section Maui in the Makena/Wailea area, I'd highly recommend this unit. We easily had a 5-star experience. We visited one of the nearby exclusive resorts with a resort pass and my wife and I looked at each other and said we clearly made the right decision staying where we did.
Mahola to Mark, Cory & Maria.
Our stay at Makena Surf B303 on Maui was amazing. It exceeded all expectations. Mark and Corey's home was cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It made a perfect location to go out and explore the island. And it was the perfect location to just "be at home on the lanai" - whale watch, listen to the surf, watch the sunset and sip champagne. The property manager, Maria, checked in both on arrival and departure and was available should any assistance be needed. Thank you Mark and Corey for sharing your home with us - it truly was a week spent in paradise. Warmest Mahalo! Amy and Burt
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The property owner and condo manager were friendly and responsive. We highly recommend this place.
The unit was wonderfully accessorized and immaculate. It is a prime location with outstanding beach access and views. Enjoyed watching the whales, swimmers, and walkers. Owners and property manager are very responsive.
A glorious property. Fantastic location and outstanding view from the spacious lanai. Well appointed kitchen. Mark and Maria checked in to ensure all was well with our stay. Magical Christmas in Maui our family of four will always remember. Highly recommend Makena Surf and hope to be back someday!!!
Great location, immaculate grounds, large beachfront patio, and responsive owner and staff.
We have stayed at the Makena Surf many times but B-303 is the most well-stocked and most welcoming condo we’ve ever stayed in. From the very helpful, friendly and professional manager to the array of kitchen and beach items available, this condo is a “dream come true”. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Makena Surf.
Everything about this property was great. It was perfect for my husband and I alone but see that is would be a wonderful place for families as well. We will definitely be back.
I am a hotel girl…but after staying at this property, I don’t know how I can go back to a hotel! The communication with Mark the owner was fantastic even before we arrived. When we arrived, Maria the manager made herself available to us the entire time. Ok, now with that out of the way, the condo had the most spectacular view with the most wonderful lanai. We cooked our BBQ dinners overlooking the incredible Maui sunset every night. The condo had every single thing we could have needed. We cannot wait to return. Thank you, Mark, Cory and Maria!
For those looking to enjoy a quiet Maui beach with sunset views, look no further. Makena Surf is a serene complex on a lovely sandy beach. If you like snorkeling, Turtle Town is about a 100 yard swim from this beach; tons of turtles and fish, pretty coral. The beach is fairly uncrowded, especially Monday through Thursday. A few hundred yards down the beach is a state park where you see folks getting married on the beach literally every night (presumably because a photographer told them this beach was quiet and perfect at sunset).
Any condo in this complex would be good, but B303 seems really perfect. It’s been recently redecorated in a modern, tasteful vibe. Listening to the surf crashing on the waves for morning coffee never gets old. There are thoughtful touches in this condo ... plenty of spices, beach chairs and umbrellas, and a box filled with anything you might possibly need on the beach.
Lastly, the owners and house manager Maria are super responsive and helpful. Maria had great recommendations on take out food options. In short, all the 5 star reviews are well-earned. We are already contemplating when we return.
