condo E-103 was very nice. We had lovely views and saw whales right in front one evening. Beautiful sunsets. Wonderful pool which could have been a little warmer but was very uncrowded. Beautiful grounds.

When your 'twenty-something' children tell you that as you walk into the appartment, you know its a winner. And app A102 is a winner. Large and spacious. Luxurious living area with views out to the beach and ocean. Two bedrooms; one king size bed, the other two singles. Two bathrooms - a little dated compared to the rest of the...

Immaculately maintained, secure, private and yet close to anything you might want. Clean, private, quiet, well manicured. Swimming pools, tennis courts, grills, beach, what more could you want? Rental or home, this is paradise!

Our family loves makena surf. The property is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped. All of the rooms have amazing views. The property is large, and there are many units, but even at its busiest it doesn't seem overcrowded. It's pricey, but that's oceanfront Maui for you. We love staying here and have booked again for next year. Oh, and the premiere housekeeping...

The location is awesome, the condo we had was mediocre at best. The beds are small and uncomfortable, and lots of bugs inside and out. The best part was the location and the private beach just steps away. It's likely we won't stay here again.

I stayed in a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom condo at the Makena Surf property in Maui. An amazing location within 100 yards of the sand. The overall property was constantly being groomed by landscapers, the pool (always clean) was rarely used, and the beach was absolutely perfect. I mean, we saw sea turtles going past us as we waded in waist-high...

Excellent place to stay. Clean, quiet, excellent snorkeling just outside, close to great stores and restaurants. DR staff was helpful and responded to any questions or concerns. If I come back to Maui, I would definitely stay there again.

The condo was very nice and the view was fantastic. Some construction was going on next door but for the most part we did not hear it--the worker's seemed aware of us being next door. Staying in a condo was so much nicer than the crowded scenes we saw at nearby hotels. The beach is great, not crowded and there...
