"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“Close to Perfect”
We just returned from a second honeymoon at the Makena Surf in Maui and it was fantastic.
I lived on Maui for a few years and never knew it could be this nice. The condo was private, quiet, well appointed and just steps away from a sandy beach and good snorkeling. Each unit has its own BBQ and a very well equipped kitchen. We liked the setting so much we never went out to eat. They take care of the details which is really nice.
Makena is just past Wailea near the southeast end of Maui. It is quieter and more upscale than neighboring Kihei or Lahina/Kaanapali to the north. The only down side is the price. You pay dearly for what you get, but I would rather stay there once than many other places in Maui twice. But I go to Hawaii to relax and enjoy the water and mountains, not to party (I can do that at home), so I really value places like Makena Surf. If you want to whoop it up, get a cheaper place in Kihei or near Lahina and hit the clubs.
We didn't bring our kids on this trip, but we plan to return with them. There is a lot of kid friendly beach and snorkeling within walking distance. As you can probably tell, we absolutely loved this place and can't wait to come back.
