There can not be a place with a better location than this one. Seeing the view from the balcony for the first time felt like slipping the surly bonds of Earth and touching the face of God. After you stay here, you will know the melancholy Da Vinci describes after experiencing flight. You will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return.
Condo was clean and beautiful. Bed was little uncomfortable but overall everything was great! The view from the balcony was unforgettable. Awesome!
Amazing property. Clean, renovated, and great communication. Would highly recommend!
Property is exactly like pictures shown in rental page and literally has every appliance/amenity required to feel like at home, just on the beach!
Lanai sits directly overlooking the little beach area and Beach access is less than a 3 minute walk from door to sand. Snorkeling is terrific from here as well, with numerous PAiD excursions coming to where you can snorkel free from this beach.
Very quiet and comfortable, would highly recommend.
Lovely and spacious condo with easy access to the beach and local activites.
Makena Surf is an incredible place. This was our 3rd stay at this resort and we can't wait to cone again.
The unit is very well maintained. The views from the lanai are breathtaking.
Anke is a great host, she responded to all our questions in a timely manner, checkin and checkout were very easy.
Our family of 4 enjoyed staying in this gorgeous condo at Makena Surf. The view from the lanai was so dreamy and spectacular we spent as much time outside as possible. The condo itself was super clean and had everything we needed to enjoy a week in paradise. The beach on the property was so much fun. We saw turtles everyday while the kids boogie boarded. We hope to be back again for our next spring break. Mahalo!
Beautiful location and clean impeccably remodelled
We stayed here for a glorious week in February and spent a lot of time just watching whales from the beautiful lanai. A truly wonderful, well-equipped place to stay. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Maui.
We’ve been coming to Makena Surf for 37 years. This is a beautiful and well equipped property. Definitely recommend this unit!
This place is exquisite. Tastefully decorated, comfortable furniture, three separate climate-controls (one for each bedroom and one for the living space), and everything needed for a feel-at-home stay. The view from the lanai is gorgeous, relaxing and peaceful and the easy and quick access to the beach and cove was unparalleled. Snorkeling literally yards from your living space was a joy and treat, and can't be done justice with a few words. Finally, plenty of dining options within a 5-10 minute drive. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
Stayed here woke family (2 adults, 2 elementary school age kids). This property is exactly as the photos and description depict. Location is great - a bit farther down the road from the big resorts where beaches were much more quiet. The Mākena Surf property overall is very quiet and calm. Perfect for relaxation or just hanging out on the lanai. This unit was well stocked with all the kitchen supplies we needed. A nice welcome package of fruit, coffee, and wine greeted us in the kitchen. We did pay it forward by leaving extra tp and paper towels and a couple of non perishables. Our kids enjoyed the beach, lanai, and playing with the wooden blocks. Also great to have access to beach chairs, umbrella, and pool noodles in the storage bin outside. Communication was seamless with Anke. We would definitely stay here again pending availability! Aloha and Mahalo!
I would definitely stay in this unit again. The unit is nicely renovated with one of the best views in Makena Surf. The community is quiet and lush with landscaping - very private.
4th time staying here and it didn’t disappoint.
I consider myself an avid, seasoned traveler. I have booked and stayed in numerous places that definitely did not meet expectations set by online pictures. I have to say this place is definitely worth the money and WILL exceed your expectations. Everything worked (washer/dryer/dishwasher/stove/oven/microwave/sub-zero fridge/coffee maker/tv) like it should. The host was very helpful and helped our long-overdue vacation go off without a hitch. Waking up to the crashing waves in Wailea is just not something you can beat. We will definitely be staying here again. Mahalo Anke!
I really feel I hit the jackpot when I found this beautiful condo. It’s everything we needed and then some! The view is jaw dropping gorgeous; breakfast on the lanai every morning with my family was my favorite time of day. We will be returning to this rental many times over!
The unit is perfectly located for watching sunsets over the water, with a beautiful beach view. The condo itself was very nice, with plenty of amenities. We couldn’t have found a lovelier place for our trip.
We loved so many things about staying at this condo. Beautiful condo, great location, amazing view, wonderful grounds, peaceful and all around….paradise.
We very much enjoyed our stay. There was a little hiccup getting in as the door code didn't work, but Anke was easy to reach/very responsive and was able to reset it right away. The location is great and walkable to 2 beaches. Beautiful view from the balcony. We appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella, and we left a boogie board for vacation karma for the next folks. We would happily stay here again with friends or family.
Terrific views. Beautiful Condo, quiet and private. Good snorkling from small beach in front of condo.
A snorkeler’s delight!
Amazing view and loved the beach access minutes from our door!
The view was nothing short of amazing !!!! The pictures are completely accurate and our stay couldn’t have been any better. The access to the near private beach provided for easy and relaxing beach days! Snorkeling was unbelievable right off the coast as wel!!!
Really nice condo, updated & well furnished. It faces over a small cove, you can watch & hear the surf, while looking out to see Molokini. We sat out on the lānai every evening for the most breathtaking sunsets!!!
The only down side was the upstairs neighbors- they were super noisy- dragging furniture over the tile floors & had a small child who jumped & stumped around at all hours of the day. Don’t know if they are permanent residents or temp. renters?
The property was amazing! Two couples stayed in the condo. The lanai's view was breathtaking, and we were essentially on the beach. The condo was very clean, and there was a surplus of clean towels. The only complaint I have is the 2nd bedroom could have a larger bed. Otherwise, it made for a very memorable stay!
View was breathtaking! Place was gorgeous. We did not want to leave.
Unit G-205 is a wonderful property. We were four adults, so the layout worked very well. The sunset and ocean views were spectacular, and the location next to the small beach very convenient, as was the proximity to Big And Polo beaches. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the noise from surrounding units is very muted. Minor inconveniences included the living room furniture not accommodating “group” sunsets or tv watching, and the spa at the property was closed for several days during our stay. Everything else was exactly as described.
From beginning to end, our family thoroughly enjoying staying here in Maui. What a blessing and treat to wake up every morning to the sounds of the surf and drink a peaceful morning coffee. Relaxing dinners in this condo were a dream and the beach and amenities put it over the top. Thank you Anke!
My family and I (twin 16-year-olds, my husband & I) stayed here for 10 nights. We absolutely loved it. The property looked just like the photos, and it is almost impossible to capture the beautiful views in a photo. I took several stunning sunset photos from the balcony.
I was impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked (I always appreciate a wide selection of spices), and they even stocked enough laundry detergent so we didn't have to buy our own (a nice touch). We had one issue in that we couldn't get a shade to close, and maintenance arrived at the door within 15 minutes of our asking the owner for assistance. Problem was ours, and was immediately explained so we had no further issues.
We used the fitness facility several times, the tennis courts (easy to borrow tennis rackets from Security), and loved walking around the gorgeous, well-manicured grounds. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Thank you so much, Anke. We will definitely be back!
Wow! This gorgeous place surpassed our expectations and quickly became the highlight of our trip to Maui! Inside and out, sunrise to sunset, the property and the location were amazing. We hope to be back to this paradise.
Gorgeous condo, incredible view and very responsive host. Everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Will definitely be back!
The moment we walked in and saw the beautiful view of the ocean right off the back patio we knew we had chosen the right place. The condo itself was updated, clean, and had everything we needed for the week. It also included a great guide book from the owner. Every restaurant we tried on the list was outstanding. The condo overlooks a beautiful, quiet beach where you can drop your chair, walk into the ocean and begin snorkeling. If you are looking to see sea turtles this is the place to snorkel. You are also well-located to visit the surrounding variety of beaches as well as the Wailua ocean trail which is great for jogging or a relaxing walk.
This property was amazing and the location was great, the views were beautiful, the sunsets were to die for. The property is beautiful and the condo was amazing with 2 king size rooms and the air conditioning was perfect. I highly recommend this place. The communication between us and the property manager was great.
