It is our goal to provide each guest with reasonable and competitive prices while providing a level of service and quality accommodations that elevates the luxury vacation experience above all other Makena properties There is a difference in quality when renting a "Makena Surf" villa that is offered by Private Paradise Villas.

The Makena area is a historic and fairly rural region on the island of Maui Remnants of old villages can be found in the rubble of lava covered shores and hiking trails show the way to remote and pristine snorkeling sites The coastline south of Makena Surf is host to many small coves from which more adventurous visitors can launch a kayak or a scuba diving expedition (weather and surf conditions permitting) Venture out amongst schools of brightly colored reef fish or if you are lucky spot a sea turtle dolphin or humpback whale (winter season) We are particularly fond of the walking and jogging courses available in the Wailea and Makena area From Makena Surf you can head in either direction to exercise along Wailea's oceanfront paved promenade or follow the ancient Pi'ilani road towards La Perouse Bay for stunning scenery on lightly traveled roads.

In addition to the long and broad sandy beach in front of Makena Surf there are more than a dozen other sandy coves and beaches nearby The famous "Big" and "Little" beaches are located within a few minutes drive Also nearby are Polo Beach Wailea Beach Elua Beach and the lovely postcard-perfect beaches of Kihei such as Keawakapu Kamaole II Kamaole III and Charley Young Beaches All beaches on Maui are open to the public and they all offer public access with free parking Most also offer restrooms showers and picnic facilities.

An abundance of enjoyable ocean and outdoor sports can be experienced in the area canoe paddling paddle boarding boogie boarding skim boarding outrigger canoe sailing surfing snorkeling scuba diving kayaking and horseback riding.

Convenient take-out service is offered by many local restaurants including Longhi's,Tommy Bahama or Bev Gannon's remodeled "Gannon's" Restaurant at the Wailea Golf Course.

unequivocally positive experience

  • 5 of 5

the entire experience was stellar from beginning to end, from the space itself to the location (which could not be improved upon) to the obvious effort put into the space looking good. the property managers were quick to respond to any questions or request. we have been going to hawaii for many years now and have rented a home every time. this home is the best we've rented that entire time and we will happily stay again when we return to maui.
