"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“A World Apart”
My family including two young grandsons , found Makena Surf to have everything you could ask for in a beautiful, small privately owned ocean front location . After a week in a large, busy but fun Kaanapali beach hotel. we were looking for a quiet location that still offered a quality vacation time. We found it at Makena Surf, F110. A prime oceanfront unit on the ground level , it offered beautiful sunsets, a grass area for the grandsons to play and a beach a few metres (not minutes ) away.
The beach sand is extremely fine making beach walking and play fun unless the wind in early afternoon is too strong. Mornings and evenings were always calm and the rocky point is a prime location for kayak tours to see the turtles. If you are a strong swiimmer you can enjoy them from your base location and not drive anywhere. Snorkling along the rocks near the beach was mixed as visability may be low in some conditions. The surf on the beach in late morning was fun for young and old.
From the gourmet kitchen to 2 large bedrooms with two master bathrooms to professional decor to four sliding patio doors that disappear into the wall ,this 1500 sq ft F110 unit had everything . No lining up to bbq when your patio has its own new barbeque waiting for you.
The larger of the two swimming pools had a deep end which was lacking in the bigger hotels and made for more family fun. The flowers and the landscaping were spectacular and the staff offered to give me a tour after their shift.
If you want to dine out or go shopping the Wailea hotels and shopping centre are 5 minutes away. The southern beaches such as Big Beach are also minutes away.
The staff at Destination Resorts made reservations and check in easy. One big bonus is you can review and select the unit that is right for you.
