Beautiful location, condo has wonderful waterfront views and easy beach access. Very tasteful and relaxing decor with every convenience in every room. Excellent kitchen appointments, luxurious linens, super lighting and fans. The master bathroom/shower is a vacation in itself! Our family could not have been happier or more comfortable. The two large lanais provide great lounging areas for all.
A superior property in every respect!
Perfect location for a family vacation in Maui! Beautiful views, beach, pool, and close to restaurants and shopping! Our host was wonderful as well as the property manager! Good communication throughout!
Enjoyed the property and the location. Great time was had by all.
Exactly as advertised—beautiful condo with a stunning view! The property is immaculately maintained and well managed. Easy access to spectacular beaches. I would definitely look to stay here again if another Maui trip is in our future.
I have stayed at Makena Surf in various buildings and this was truly the best location in terms of amazing ocean view and proximity to the beach and bigger pool. The unit itself was also the nicest we have stayed in. It is fully renovated with a master shower that has two glass walls that look out into the ocean! The unit was very well stocked with regular household items but also not “cluttered”. Susan was great to work with and her onsite property manager was also super responsive to my questions. I already booked this unit for next year!
This property is magnificent in every way. Fully ready for a perfect stay. We loved it.
Makena Surf is a beautiful place and this unit was perfect for us. Two couples and having two master suites fit the bill perfectly. We never felt crowded and had plenty of room. Balconies from both master suites and from living room. We saw so many whales and the sunsets were out of this world. The condo had everything we needed. Definitely would recommend staying here. It was very hard to leave !
The condo was as advertised. Susan was very responsive and great to work with before and during our stay. Snorkeling was great within a short walk. Great location very close to Wailea with shops and a nice market for food, etc.
From months to weeks ahead the communication and flexibility with Susan was amazing. We extended our stay a few weeks after booking and it was no issue. The photos and description of the listing, while stunning, just don't do the actual experience justice. The unit has everything you need, private beach, clean, quiet, fully loaded with cleaning supplies and normal kitchen ingredients, toy for the beach, chairs the list goes on. The views...just wow. Susan is hands down the best landlord/owner we've ever dealt with. We are looking forward to making this an annual trip and coming back again!
Susan's condo has perfect views and is so well stocked, there wasn't anything we were missing. The kitchen has everything you could need and the three bedrooms make it spacious and comfortable. We were 2 families with kids, the beach is a 2 min walk and the pool is a 1 min walk out the back door. We have stayed in this complex for 10 years and love the location. The snorkeling is amazing, the paid snorkel boats anchor right off the lanai so you know it is some of the best on the island. The area. off the rocks is filled with fish, turtles, eels and lots of other creatures. We will definitely be back!
We had an outstanding week at Makena Surf F302. The unit is wonderful. I cannot think of anything to change. I did not cook any meals but the kitchen was equipped with whatever you might need.
Susan was so much help before and during our stay as was Kristian her property manager.
Go by Snorkel Bob's on your way to the unit and get a mask and fins. You can snorkel out in front of the unit and spend time with the sea turtles. Just go out early or later to avoid the snorkel boats.
Was just my husband and I there for the week. We enjoyed the front lanai in the mornings and the side lanai in the afternoons. This is where we will stay when we plan our next trip to Maui.
This property is outstanding. The views are better than any of the pictures! This is a well apointed, upscale unit with 2 separate balconies right on the water. The complex is well maintained and private with direct access to a seculded beach. We could wade into the ocean and snorkle seeing green turtles on each outing. Owner is very prompt in responding and ensured we had a great stay. Overall, excellent property for an outstanding family vacation.
Great location. Beautiful full service condo. Full amenities for 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms, full kitchen and laundry. Quiet and peaceful. Well-kept property with pool, barbecue area and access to beach.
This was our third time visiting Wailea and Susan’s place was far better than The Grand Wailea and Wailea Beach Villas. The property is exactly as described. Communication with Susan and her property manager, Kristian was excellent. It truly was a privilege to be Susan’s guests.
Property is nicely furnished with a great view of the ocean and the grounds are very nice.
Every detail was perfection! From the views, to the beaches within walking distance, to the care and communication we received….we could not ask for better! All exceeded our expectations. We will be back!
Everything was wonderful. The condo is awesome and we could have spent the whole time in it!
Three senior friends spent a week in this perfectly updated unit. The view alone is breathtaking, but so are the surroundings in the condo. Everything we needed was there and our property manager, Kristian, was very helpful.
We were here to celebrate a family wedding. Makena Surf is a great location on the beach, with amazing views. We will definitely try to stay here again.
Cannot say enough about our stay! The views from this place are just gorgeous! In addition, the condo is really well thought out, exceptionally clean, well stocked (in both kitchen and bathrooms), and incredibly comfortable. I would also recommend going to the condo first, before shopping, so you don't over buy and waste. Susan was very helpful and always responded quickly to any questions we had. Very accommodating!!
The beach, just off the balcony, is amazing for snorkeling! We saw turtles and a ton of fish every day. The water is an easy entrance and exit because its sandy. We also saw whales (from the balcony) every single day!!
We highly recommend and would absolutely book again if we head back to Maui!
The property was all that we hoped for and more. The owner provided timely and ample information on both the unit and its operation making for an easy entry and navigation. It was impeccably clean upon arrival and had all the amenities we could need. We spent hours on the balcony taking in the gorgeous views and watching the whales. The unit is situated with fantastic waterfront views of Molokini and south Makena beaches. The scenery never gets old. The proximity to the association pool and two beaches was close and convenient. We rented kayaks for several days and we’re able to store (and lock) them on the larger beach area. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed everything about this unit! We highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again one day.
This condo was AMAZING. The view from every window and the beautiful, relaxing beaches at Makena Surf made it difficult to leave for other adventures. Every time we looked out we saw whales! Perfect location with great access to shops and restaurants in Wailea and everything you could need if you decide to stay in. We will definitely stay again!
This property exceeded all of our expectations! The location, the layout and the accommodations throughout the condo made for an exceptional vacation. Susan has thought of everything to make your stay easy and very comfortable. We are thankful she chose to share her home.
This is a wonderful condo amongst many great condos. Our family had a great time. It is an ideal location and the views from the condo are outstanding. The condo was clean & nice. It is well equipped. Our kids (and us) loved the boogie boards and sand/play equipment. The owner was very timely in communication and helpful. We hope to return on a regular basis!
Great location close to all major resorts and beaches. Updated appliances, great views, especially for whales. Will stay again.
We had an absolute incredible stay for my family the week before Christmas in this gorgeous property. This is a 5-star property all-around. I'd actually give it 6 stars for location and for communication with property management. The property management/owner was extremely helpful, responsive, and went above and beyond in responding to numerous questions I had about our trip, even with questions that weren't directly related to the property. The location can't be beat. It is literally a 1-minute walk down to 2 different beaches that can be directly accessed from the property. This property has probably the best view in the complex, due to it's corner location (beach/ocean views from both balconies). The property was well-equipped and appointed. Every dish/kitchen item/bar item that you would need is there. For beach days, the property has everything you need, from chairs, towels, umbrellas, storage bags, flotation devices, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable, with 2 of the 3 having direct access to balcony with ocean view. Plenty of closet/drawer space and hangars are available. I will absolutely recommend this specific property to anyone I know traveling to Maui. If you are looking for a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom property, don't look any further.
What an incredible condo! The two lanais really can’t be beat. We saw whales almost every day, with one breaching multiple times on Christmas Day! The home is well equipped as well, including shampoo, conditioner and soaps. Makena Surf is a great location for us, very quiet but on an amazing beach. Every morning we’d drive 8 minutes to Wailea, get a latte at Honolulu coffee or Island Gourmet then walk the beach path. I highly recommend this rental and hope to be back myself someday.
Our first evening we sat on the large lanai (one of two) and watched a beautiful sunset. It was so quiet and peaceful. The beach is a short easy walk and chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards are all provided. The kitchen is well equipped and there is also a grill on the lanai. It’s a beautiful home and a perfect getaway. We highly recommend it!
A well furnished condo with amazing views and beautiful sunsets. Will definitely come back again to this unit
Our family had a wonderful stay at this property, and host/owner Susan Heller was very responsive to all our needs. Everything about the condo was outstanding, including the location, the views and the gorgeous beaches just steps away. We look forward to returning!
My husband and I had a magnificent stay here for 5 nights. The pictures, although accurate, can’t do the place justice. The views, including that from the shower, are stunning. This was the best stocked condo we have ever rented and the decor is perfect. Susan was great to deal with - very informative and helpful. Finally, having a beach on either side with snorkeling and sea turtles was magical. Stay here - you won’t be disappointed.
This 3-bedroom condo was perfect for our group of 6 people! This condo is a corner unit on the top (3rd) floor with 2 large lanais overlooking the ocean and beach. You could not be closer to the ocean. The condo is updated with modern finishing, appliances and furnishings, plus artwork that compliments the home. The owner provides beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, beach towels, etc. The kitchen is well stocked. The master bedroom has 2 sliding doors that open to both lanais with a view of the ocean while you shower.
The Makena Surf property is located south of Wailea in a beautiful and quiet location. You are close to restaurants and shopping in the upscale Wailea resort area. The grounds are full of tropical plants and flowers. There is quick and easy access to 2 beaches in front of the property. This is a great location for those that like to snorkel. In the mornings, snorkel kayak/boating tours come in front of the property to snorkel with sea turtles.
Susan, the home owner is very welcoming and accommodating. She provides information on the condo before you arrive, and the process to check in/out with access through the security gates was setup and straightforward. Susan ensures her guests have an enjoyable and relaxing time during their stay.
We have wonderful memories staying in this condo. We spent a lot of time on the lanais relaxing and enjoying the amazing ocean views including beautiful sunsets. There was no moon out during our stay and we spent evenings star gazing and watching the stars/planets move across the sky. We could even see the outline of the milky way. It was hard to leave this beautiful condo and would love to stay here again!
Take it from an old Maui local, this place is amazing. The lanai and views are stunning, the condo is beautiful, clean and spacious. Snorkeling and hanging with the turtles out front was our daily experience. Thank you Susan, we hope to be be back soon 🤙
We booked Susan's home based on the location and the views from the two lanais and the over all impression of the condo from the listing. Her home is even better in person. No photos could ever do justice to just how beautiful the location is and how well appointed her home is.
Decorated throughout with unique and beautiful artwork and furniture, the condo looks and feels very comfortable. We recommend anyone staying to definitely check in first and get a feel for what Susan supplies because you may not need to purchase many items you may have anticipated needing. There are soaps, shampoos, dishwashing supplies, paper towels, sugar packets and more.
The kitchen is incredibly well designed and kitted out with everything you could need to cook during your stay. All the electronics, pot's, pans, utensils, and flatware are all high quality that one would keep in their own home. When staying at Susan's you feel you are indeed staying at someone's home. You don't often feel that way at many vacation rental homes these days.
We had the most delightful and relaxing time visiting. There are two beaches that are easy to access and one is just in view from the main lanai. The snorkeling companies drop off snorkelers just outside the condo almost every morning. If you fancy snorkeling yourself you can rent equipment locally and swim out from the beach that you can see from the living room lanai. If you head out first thing in the morning you can beat the boats. Be mindful of the weather and the tides as our last two days there is was quite rough.
The bedrooms were all very comfortable and everyone appreciated the well designed closet space enabling us to unpack and feel really at home. In the master bedroom, on comfortable evenings, you can open the doors to the two lanais (with the screens shut, of course) and fall asleep listening to the waves just outside. Absolute heaven!
We enjoyed this vacation enormously and were sad when our time came to an end. I could honestly go on and on about how wonderful Susan's home is and what a wonderful host she is but I will sum up by saying Susan is a top notch host and her home is absolutely fabulous. Thank you for an amazing stay!
The pictures of the condo are accurate but this place still exceeded our expectations. The view of the water and Molokini are stunning - you can even enjoy it while taking a shower! The furnishings are stylish and comfortable. The location is convenient for all the best beaches, restaurants and shopping in Wailea. We are avid snorkelers and the reef out front has healthy coral and many turtles. We went early before the boat tours showed up. Afterwards we could have breakfast on the lanai. We have stayed multiple places on Maui/the islands and this is our favorite. Susan, the owner, made check in very easy and the unit is well maintained and equipped with anything you might need.
Wonderful corner unit on top floor with amazing views in two directions. The unit was very well decorated, and clean. Snorkeling right off the beach was amazing! Turtle town right next to the condo. Best turtle experience I have ever had. One swam right up to me and then swam under me. But remember you should stay at least 6 feet away and you could be fined up to $10,000 for touching a sea turtle in Hawaii. So enjoy the thrill of the turtles but at a 6 foot distance.
Side note: I was very impressed by the stocked bottles of alcohol, large containers of Kirkland shampoo & conditioner, assortment of spices, artificial sweetener and canned drinks (left by other guests), plenty of supplies for laundry and kitchen. All VRBOs should be stocked this well! Overall great bang for the buck and I would love to come back and stay in this unit again!
This property is amazing. The views are spectacular. The condo is immaculate, beautiful, spacious and well equipped with anything you might need. We would have stayed longer, but it was booked solid! Don’t wait to confirm your booking. You will regret it if you loose out!
Great location for swimming, snorkeling, and just plain relaxing.
Everything about Susan’s place is perfect. It is well stocked and you can’t beat the view. We enjoyed staying here and felt very at home and never had to run to the store to get anything (other than food and drinks) as the condo is incredibly well stocked. The beach chairs and umbrellas were very much appreciated and a nice touch! Susan was great to work with!! The only thing that could make this place even better is room darkening curtains in the master! With two glass doors in the room the sunlight makes it hard to sleep past about 6:30am. Fortunately we are early risers however it is pretty bright in there. The other rooms stayed dark. We would definitely come back!!
Everything was perfect. The condo, the facilities, the beaches. We had a wonderful time, we just needed more time.
Beautiful property, maintained excellent, great communication with property owner. Fantastic trip, we will be returning to this property the next time we are here.
We come to Maui yearly and this is by far the best property we’ve had the pleasure of renting. The views are spectacular, the 2 beaches are steps from the door, and the unit itself is immaculate and beautifully furnished. The kitchen has everything you would want to prepare and serve meals. The snorkeling near Makena Surf is among the best in Maui and sea turtles are all around. Makena Surf is wonderfully maintained and the pool is clean and not crowded at all, several times we were the only people there. Susan is very responsive to emails and questions. It was so nice having beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and boogie boards furnished. This unit has everything you need for a fantastic vacation. Truly luxurious.
Sitting in the patio and watching all the whales play right out in front of your condo was amazing. We enjoyed the beautiful condo and location in Makena. Would not hesitate to return to this wonderfully decorated condo
We loved our stay in Makena Surf!! This place is lovely in multiple ways - the big lanais with the ocean views can’t be beat. The kitchen is well- stocked, large and beautiful! The master bath shower is the best shower I’ve ever used. You can see the sparkling ocean as you shower. Everything is done tastefully and smartly to work well and make you comfortable. We had the BEST stay and can’t wait to return.
The condo was fantastic! It's very well set up...fully stocked with everything you could possibly need - appliances, toiletries, beach toys/chairs, binoculars etc. It was clean and very well laid out for 2-3 couples to comfortably stay in. The owner provided information that covered everything. The check in / check out process was very easy. The lanais were amazing....great spot to start and end each day! Thank you!
We booked this condo for our 40th anniversary sharing it with our son, daughter and son-in-law. The whole experience surpassed our expectations. The unit's layout, space, amenities and views are fantastic. The condo was spotless when we moved in. We particularly enjoyed barbequing and dining on the spacious lanai. The pool areas, private beaches and tennis courts are easily accessible and never overcrowded. Susan was always friendly, helpful, accessible and courteous. We would rent again in a heart beat.
Location, location , location!! And the property compliments the location completely. Upon arrival the first thing you notice is the immaculately manicured gardens and walkway leading you in. This condo has been thoughtfully furnished and beautifully appointed with all those touches that make for a memorable experience . Comfortable beds, lovely showers, spacious bathrooms (each bedroom has its own bath).
Frankly we lived on the deck, songbirds awakened us every morning and we never tired of watching the waves splash against the lava rocks along the shore. Every day a new group of snorkelers squealed with delight and bobbed in the water just off shore. We did find the induction stove difficult to master and quite complicated. Given enough time I’m sure it would be a breeze but when on vacation it was a little much. It was obvious there was no skimping on quality appliances and furnishings. I felt like I had walked into a model home. This home is extraordinary. Oh, and did I mention the evenings. If I could jump into those sunsets I’m sure all my problems would disappear
If living the dream is your idea of a holiday you really need to try this condo at Makena Surf.
Amazing condo with so many amenities. Spectacular views that included whales and turtles. Short walk to to a fantastic snorkel/swim beach. Pool area very nice. Updated and very clean. Will definitely return!
I can't say enough about this magnificent property. Our family of 5 stayed for 6 nights and it was an experience we will never forget. The property is perfect down to every single detail. The size was perfect for our family and had EVERYTHING we needed. We've stayed in properties before where you forget something and have to run to the store 5 times to get something, but everything we needed was here! The interior is impeccably decorated and the view from both lanai's was the BEST!! We did not have to pay for expensive excursions to go snorkeling. We walked down to Chang's beach every morning and snorkeled the reefs with the sea turtles and other amazing sea creatures. We took family photos one night on Chang's beach which was the ideal location!! Susan was extremely responsive and provided every detail we needed. The location was close to all of the shops and restaurants. We watched the sun rise while having coffee every morning. We were felt like we were right at home if not more so because of the beauty and comfort of this place. There is no doubt we will return here!! Thank you Susan for sharing your amazing home in paradise!! If you are considering this property for a stay, look no further! You won't regret it!!
We have stayed at many properties within the makena surf complex and really enjoyed this one. It had every thing in the cupboards and spice cabinet that we needed. They were very helpful when our flight was changed. The one improvement I would recommend is that it is essential for a 3 BR unit to have an outdoor dining table that seats 6 not 4, especially in Hawaii. otherwise everything else was fabulous!
This oceanfront condo was remarkable. Susan has left nothing undone. My husband and I had our adult children and dear friend. Three bedrooms and baths made us all very happy. The place was immaculate. Open up and listen to the waves all day and all night. Close up with AC and quiet fans. The beach is a three minute walk where every morning we swam with gorgeous fish and sea turtles. No need to hire a boat for that! Everything is new and the condo is beautifully appointed. It is comfy and there are plenty of towels and amenities. There were many beach chairs, three umbrellas, beach toys and even sunscreen in the closet. We actually cooked in the high tech kitchen, grilled on the lanai and ate our food out on the wraparound lanai. It is appointed with lounge chairs, comfy chairs, tables and umbrellas. We got up each morning to see the sunrise and watch the boats sail out to Molikini. The stars at night are magical. There are large TV's if you need to watch TV and internet that is flawless, but we were there to un-plug! The towels were plentiful for shower and beach. A washer and dryer is always helpful. The beds were firm, but comfortable with lovely linens. You don't need to bring much. It was quiet and we never heard voices and being in a top unit, there is no one to make noise above you. The ground are well manicured and the pool was great. We had a glorious week together as a family. You get what you pay for. It would be perfect for two couples. Book soon. your dates may fill up quickly.
