About the property

Luxury, Prime View Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Privacy, seclusion, and awe inspiring views.

These are just some of the most talked about joys of the Makena Surf, on Maui's southwest coast. Here is the Maui that lovers seek to find, on a magnificent, meandering coastline. Right in front of you, humpback whales cavort in their winter home. While behind you beckon the activities of a richly appointed resort, including two swimming pools, four tennis courts, and just beyond, the fairways of the Makena and Wailea Golf Courses.

During the spring and summer of 2016 several units in our building will be going through extensive remodels. There will be noise in the area between 8 AM and 5 PM. Monday through Saturday. Typically the noise will not be heard inside the unit, but with the doors open or on the lanai, you will hear it. If you plan on being on the beach, golf links or the pool during the day, this is a great opportunity to get a luxury unit at a great discount.

At Makena Surf, your fully remodeled air conditioned apartment is oceanfront and features all of the luxury amenities. Including wet bar, and spacious private lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Molikini Island to the West. Plus a fully-equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, washer/dryer, housekeeping and concierge services.

Yet as pampering as Makena Surf is, you're just minutes from Maui's primitive side. Explore deserted beaches. Snorkel in vacant bays. Enjoy all that Maui offers for the truly adventurous.

Makena Surf - Simply the Best!

About Jim Osgood

Our family has loved their visits to our condo on Maui. We originally bought the unit in 1988 when my wife was pregnant with our youngest child. It has been a wonderful get away for us and we have tons of fabulous memories. We are happy to be able to share this wonderful experience with our guests.

Jim Osgood purchased this condo in 1983

Why Jim Osgood chose Maui

The seclusion and luxury of Makena Surf allows us to relax and get away from the rush-rush of the world. Our unit is only feet from the ocean providing us with amazing ocean views, especially nice during whale watching season! It is an easy drive into the shops and restaurants in Wailea and Kihei.

What makes this condo unique

Makena Surf is a wonderful get-away, yet close enough to fine dining, golf, tennis and right on the beach for us to enjoy all the activities we choose. It is in a great location for jogging/walking, which we do every morning. With a full designer remodel we can enjoy our time in paradise in first class luxury. (Not all Makena Surf units have been upgraded. Make sure to ask. It makes a big difference!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Makena Surf is old Hawaii...calm, peaceful, respectful of history. A place to just "be". We have stayed several times in Jim's condo; he is the perfect host! The view is not to be believed...lots of lanai time. We have seen some amazing whale action. The remodeled kitchen and baths are nicely done. The beach and main pool are steps away. Jim provides all the amenities...umbrellas, beach chairs, mats, etc. I noticed that one guest talked about elevators! Not old style! Just rent a ground floor unit if that is an issue. Big Beach is just down the road. Several great restaurants in Wailea, minutes away, as well as shopping big and small.

Great "home" base: couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed February 18-25, 2017. The condo was clean, updated, and comfortable. Fabulous deck right above the ocean and a wall of glass (or screen if you open it all up) between the kitchen/living area and the beautiful deck/ocean views. We spotted whales and turtles most days. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, appliances. The kitchen has a sponge, dish soap, trash bags, starter coffee, etc . . . .bathrooms have shampoo and soap. The bath and beach towels are large and plentiful. There are various pool/beach mats, toys, and umbrellas as well as a set of beach chairs. But the views . . . . it is hard to tear yourself away from your morning coffee on the deck and do anything else! And the sunsets!!

The grounds are absolutely lovely with lots of natural greenery, an herb garden, and well maintained walkways. There are two pools. Despite being there a peak week there were always chairs and choice of sun or shade on the pool deck. The entire complex never felt crowded though I am sure it was full. We were a quick stroll to the beach, which also never felt crowded. (One day we had a few whales right out from the beach that spent a long time putting on a pec slapping show). There is a nice hose and shower set up as you leave the sand to wash off. There are tennis courts, but we did not use them. The guests seemed like a mix of renters and owners. Everyone we encountered was friendly. You can enter the water to snorkel the famous turtle cleaning station from either of the two beaches that abut the complex.

We highly recommend the Makena Surf complex and Unit F304, in particular. We really appreciated coming “home” the relative quiet of Makena Surf yet still being close to the larger Wailea resort area and Kihei when we wanted to venture out. It was a relatively short walk up to the Wailea beach front trail, the coffee shops, etc (just under a mile) and getting in the car makes the trip roughly 2 minutes. Even at 7:30am the Wailea beachfront area felt crowded in comparison to Makena Surf. We felt like we really hit the jackpot in terms of location within South Maui.

The owner was a pleasure to work with, answered all of our questions and was flexible with a special request. He reached out to us during the trip to make sure everything was in order. We are already dreaming of a return trip and we will definitely return to Makena Surf F304. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Makena Surf F304

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding condo, location, amenities. Makena F304 is oceanfront with sweeping 180 degree views. The unit itself is recently updated with a fully stocked kitchen and new appliances. Beds and linen are high-end, very comfortable. Makena Surf sits on two of the best local beaches with snorkeling right off the beach. A couple of days ago we saw six turtles in the space of about 20 minutes. Will be back!

Owner's Response: Anne, thank you for your great review. We try hard to keep our unit in the condition that guests would expect from a luxury oceanfront rental. We really appreciate it when guests let us know we have achieved that goal. We have owned our condo for over 28 years and yet each time I walk in and see the view, I am WOWed.

Whales cavorting offshore! Need we say more?

  • 4 of 5

Makena Surf is a super location to watch whales and snorkel. Far from the bustle of Lahaina. The lanai facing the ocean gives you views of Molokini off in the distance. Kitchen is very well equipped with beautiful counters and cupboards. Dish soap, paper towels, coffee, and a welcome basket of local treats! Everything you need to enjoy Maui -- gas grill, boogie boards, noodles, beach chairs, beach mats, beach towels. Literally, steps from the beach and snorkeling where turtles are frequently seen. Showers to rinse off sand and salt. Other amenities include pool and hot tub, tennis courts and herb garden. Minutes from fine dining at Longhis, great ice cream at Lapperts, Humunumu (you know that little state fish...), quick food at several places. Drive south 5 minutes and snorkel at Makena State Park (a protected natural area) to see every fish imaginable. We caught a glimpse of an octopus today! Hint for newbies: avoid sunburn by wearing a rash guard shirt and long yoga shorts when snorkeling.

True Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better place to spend a week in Maui. The view is unbeatable and the space is perfect. Located close enough to all the you want and need, but far enough away from the hustle that you can really enjoy peace and quiet. The condo was spotlessly clean, comfortable and it felt like coming home after long days of adventuring. Added bonus: turtles playing right off the ocean in front! We had the best vacation and Jim made sure everything was taken care of so we could fully enjoy our time there. Thanks Jim!

Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this condo. We couldn't have picked a better place. The view, the location, the amenities, the privacy - all the things we wanted for this trip. Jim was very helpful and responsive. I will definitely book this condo again.
