Why cathy chose Maui

my dad was the architect of Makena surf. This resort is very unique and offers a relaxing environment matched by no other resort on the island.

What makes this condo unique

Watching weddings from the lanai all year is great fun as well as watching the whales during the winter months.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

We had a wonderful time at this condo. It was a very comfortable and well appointed place to call home for a week. The condo itself is in a great good in fact we found it very hard to need to leave! The beach has everything, the town has everything, the condo has everything...right down to the rice cooker. I didn't think the pools looked like much in the photos, but they really are very pretty and serene in real life. Also important-the bed and sheets were so cozy! We were able to sleep 8-10 hours a Joke!

Perfectly Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Makena Surf many times and this unit is top notch.

Beautiful condo, quiet location, waves rolling in 24X7

All exactly as advertised. Well appointed, lots of "extras" in the pantry and cupboards.

The snorkeling trips stop right off this beach! Turtles, eels, colorful fish, this is where they charge people to come.

.. and the view... is perfectly Hawaii. This is the location for those many sunsets before the Milky Way shows up.

Owner professional and responsive. Will return.

The best gets better?

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in this unit (first time was just about one year ago). It was awesome last year, but since then the owners have made some nice upgrades. This place is just epic, and that really is the view from the lanai. Awesome beach, awesome location, and great owners (very accommodating and pleasant). Bonus is the great tennis courts, pool, and BBQ facilities.

Simply, Hawaii at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

What you get:

1. The classic Hawaiian beach view and easy access for snorkelling or just hanging out on the beach

2. Sunsets that warm your heart

3. Secluded, non-tourist location ( restaurants are close by)

4. Easy access to some of Maui's best snorkeling (all within a few miles of the condo)

5. If you've been to Lahaina, then you'll want to always stay in Makena. Lahaina is much hotter, crowded

6. Access to the upcountry is easy

7. Haleakala is at your backdoor

All this and much much more are what make this condo a get place to stay.

This unit was recently remodeled and everything works well. The bedrooms are nicely appointed and the kitchen has all the basics for cooking.

I highly recommend this unit for its beach view and easy access to the parking lot. The pictures on this site do not begin to show you how spectacular the view truly is!!

Second Time Staying at E-303

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Makena Surf numerous times over the past 12 years and the awesome views, quiet beach and well maintained grounds are a given for any unit. However Unit E-303 is always on the top of our list and the first one we look for when planning our Maui vacation. The unit is well maintained, clean, comfortable and well appointed with the necessary amenities. The owners are great to work with and we would recommend this unit highly!

Christmas & New Years

Wow! Was the first thought we had as we entered the condo. The view from the private lanai (porch) was awesome. You don’t really have to leave the lanai – you are already on the beach; it’s that close to the ocean. From this vantage point as you look out over the ocean, you’ll see the western part of Maui along with the islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe and Molokini. Make sure you catch a sunset or two. Bring your binoculars. We visited during the beginning of the humpback whale season. Some mornings we spotted whales splashing in the water from the lanai, while on clear nights you could see the Milky Way above. The mocha-colored sandy beach below the condo stretches to the Poolenalena Park. The waves are good for boogie boarding or body surfing. Below the water surface, the bottom is sandy. Snorkeling was very popular near the beach area. Kids played for hours near the shoreline.

The Makena Surf complex was very quiet. The community is gated. There is a security guard onsite. The condo is accessible by walking down a flight of stairs or taking the ramp from the parking lot and then up one and a half flights to the third floor. The accommodations inside the condo were very comfortable. The condo is decorated in an attractive Hawaiian décor. It was clean and well stocked with supplies and kitchenware. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a home-cooked meal, and we picked fresh picked herbs from the garden. Nearby gas grills for cookouts were handy as was the secure Wi-Fi connection. The washing machine and dryer were larger than expected - great for a family of four. The owner-provided beach umbrella, chairs, towels and boogie boards were a nice touch.

We had a fabulous holiday – yes, we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Mahalo
