“It just gets better”

Once entering the property which is quite secure, and meeting the friendly and helpful owner, you are taken through a wonderful tropical and well maintained garden around a substantial pool that reminded us of pleasant visits to the now gone Hawaiiana in Waikiki in the 70s and 90s. You are then transported to the top 3rd level apartment that nestles in the garden on one side and has a panoramic view from the mountain around past headlands, inlets, islands, the west coast and the expansive beach heading north. Then in the morning it gets even better with a flotilla of boats, yachts, canoes etc out off the headland snorkelling, diving etc and the occasional turtle swimming along the shore within plain view. Despite all this activity off-shore the unit is very quiet being at the southern end of South Maui, apart from when on the balcony with the surf crashing and reinforcing that you are on a beach. Then at night when the moon was new, the display of stars was breathtaking. from a small child already entranced by the daytime experiences, to seasoned starwatchers. The unit had every thing you would ever need in terms of meals (including the close by herb garden), entertainment (including a substantial library with books on Maui golf, surfing etc), and activities at the property.(the pool, beach, tennis etc). It stopped getting better when we unfortunately had to move on.

Thank you so much for your time to post a review for us regarding Sunny Surf E301, a 3 bedroom, 3 bath top floor ocean view penthouse villa. We’re pleased to hear that you enjoyed the breathtaking views and the many villa and resort amenities. We very much agree that the villa is very quiet; it's an amazing peaceful retreat to come home to after a long activity filled day in Maui.

Thank you again for your wonderful and detailed review. Your comments are very helpful to our staff, our business, the villa owner, and to potential future visitors who may be considering a holiday at Sunny Surf E301. We look forward to welcoming you back as a guest of Tropical Villa Vacations!

Best Regards,
Tropical Villa Vacations Team

“Paradise on the beach!”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

When I was planning our family vacation for my wife and 2 adult sons, I spent countless hours researching, talking to friends, etc. As I am a supporter of Tripadvisor, I also searched the site for available units. Through a stroke of luck, I contacted Maui Vacation Advisors and after a number of back and forth emails was introduced to this unit that is right on Makena Surf Beach. I was a little sceptical as it appeared the unit had not been reviewed in a few years and the pictures that were provided, looked a little staged. I can tell you honestly that this unit is more than I expected. The 3 bedroom, 3 bath room unit, has a large walk in shower in the master, 2 terraces to lounge on, the front terrace which directly overlooks Makena Surf beach is where we spent 90% of our time watching snorkelers come to Turtle Town right in front of the unit, watching the +30 weddings that took place on the beach over the 2 week period we were there. The building was quiet, well stocked with all the amenities and untensils for an enjoyable stay. It is close to no less than 5 large resorts with 5 star restaurants, the shops of Wailea boutique shopping, numerous fabulous restaurants and a championship golf course. Access is easy, secured and convenient for quickly heading out to explore Maui and all it has to offer. In addition, the very personal service we received from Jennie who greeted us at 11pm to introduce us to the amenities, to Sydney the concierge for Tropical Villas Vacations the property managers who arranged our rental equipment, Luau reservations and golf tee times. They were only a phone call away and responded in record times. For my family and I, this was an unbelievable trip of a life time which we will cherish forever. Thanks to all who contributed.

Liked best: Being right on the beach for views and access to a beautiful relatively quiet beach.
Liked least: The only thing that we can say that was absolutely great but may need to be updated in the future, is the unit was likely 10 to 15 years old and although it was decorated professionally at the time, the decor is a little dated.
