“Paradise at the Edge of the Ocean!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The view when you walk into this unit is absolutely stunning!

The condo was immaculate and modernly updated, spacious and homey. Fully furnished with comfortable living and bedroom furniture. We loved having access to our own kitchen and having a convenient BBQ to use was an added bonus. The condo is amazingly stocked with beach gear, towels, a cooler bag and kitchen items. There wasn't anything that we were missing during our stay. The owners have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable.

Makena Surf is conveniently located close to some of the best beaches on the island, shopping, restaurants and activities. The snorkeling was fantastic with colorful fish and many sea turtles.

This was a beautiful unit in a great complex that is secure and quiet. If a relaxing vacation is what you're looking for, than look no further, this is the place for you!!

“Could be perfect with a few improvements”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I recently (5/28 - 6/4) returned from a stay in Makena Surf E-206. First, I want to say that were very impressed with so much about the unit, including its amazing location (beachfront), its spectacular decor (bamboo, granite, etc.), its cleanliness, and its bountiful amenities (beach chairs, a coffee grinder, and so forth). E-206 really is a beautiful unit! Having said that, however, I do think improvements can be made that will enhance the experience of anyone who stays there.

For example, while the beds were incredibly comfortable, the king-size pillows were simply awful. They were either so soft that they provided no head/neck support or they contained feathers (not down) that poked through the pillowcases. This is a simple fix.

Also, the unit would benefit from some inexpensive make-up mirrors that could be stored beneath the bathroom vanities. Some of us are getting old and need a bit of magnification! Like the pillows, this is a simple fix.

Another simple fix involves replacing the gasket on the washer: there’s mildew all over it and it smells awful. Frankly, had I not found it necessary, I wouldn’t have put my clothes in it.

In addition, it was surprising to us that such a high-end rental offered such low-end TV viewing options (mostly non-HD, with only very basic cable). Let’s be honest: Unlike Miami, South Maui doesn’t have a “hopping nightlife.” Most vacationers to Wailea and its environs will spend the majority of their post-beach evenings back at the rental/hotel. As a result, HD TV with enhanced channel options (SHO, HBO, etc.) seems like a no-brainer. Even Disney (a company that wants to get park-goers out of the room so they can spend more money) offers better TV viewing possibilities!

In a related area, I want to mention that neither the living room furniture nor the lanai furniture is very comfortable: While the living room furniture could use ottomans (at least), the chaise lounges on the lanai really could use some cushions. When you just want to hang out and relax or watch the ocean (we do -- a lot), you need comfy furniture.

Finally, we saw several people who were staying at Makena Surf bothering the sea turtles as they swam in the waters right in front of the resort (with one even attempting to place her infant on top of a turtle). I’d like to suggest that your ohana include in its condos a laminated card that informs renters that touching or harassing sea turtles is against the law.

“Most amazing holiday our family has ever had!”

We went for 20 days and in that time we renewed our vows for our 10 year anniversary. We were able to do it right outside our lanai (on the beach) We had been planning for months on what to do, where to go, what to see..... lets just say it was very hard to leave our condo/area. Everything you want is right there! Ocean view, pool, tennis, dinning, shopping. We saw turtles almost every day right by the black rocks out from our lanai! Our 2 smaller children did not snorkel so we thought they would never get to see turtles. We were wrong! We did lots of shelling/sea glass hunting as well just to the left of us, down the walkway to the ocean). The service, hospitality, kindness, and friendliness of ALL the staff at the condo was above and beyond! Everyone was so nice and always had a smile. It was hard to leave as many of them felt like family. The cleaning staff were so good to our kids and even gave my daughter and I each a sea glass pendant that she had made! Wow how nice! We also made a purchase online and got it delivered to Ali Resorts and they even came to our unit and hand delivered it! The unit E-206 was a gem! It was great for our family of 6. (4 children ages 8,7,5, and 3) the bunk bed room was ideal and not small or squishy at all. The showers were wonderful not to mention the pillows! I fell in love with them the moment I laid my head down! It was also nice to hear the ocean/waves from our room, (as they were on the other side of the condo) We would love to go back! we will be seeing you all again soon!!!! Mahalo Mahalo, Mahalo

“Honeymoon Paradise!”
Reviewed 17 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My husband and I stayed here for our week-long honeymoon and could not have been happier!

The recently remodeled condo is beautifully designed with just the right amount of Hawaiian touches that embrace the aloha spirit. Completely stocked with gorgeous upgrades, amenities, supplies and spa-like extras, we felt spoiled and relaxed the entire time. With its corner location, the ocean breeze flows throughout the house perfectly, bringing with it a beautiful scent of plumeria blooms from the nearby tree.

The proximity to the gorgeous, uncrowded and quiet beach is unbeatable; we discovered it was perfect for sunning, swimming, boogie-boarding and snorkeling and never had the need to fight the crowds at other beaches for a better experience. The view from the lanai is outstanding all day long and especially at sunset. It also makes a wonderful spot for grilling out and enjoying cocktails from the comfort of your own private paradise.

I should also mention that the management company, Ali'i Resorts, LLC were fantastic! From greeting us at the condo with a grand tour, recommending points-of-interests on the island, and helping us with new propane (we grilled A LOT!), this group made sure we always felt welcome without a worry.

Overall, we both can't imagine a better way to have spent our honeymoon and look forward to vacationing here in the future.

Nearby activities and attractions we enjoyed or appreciated:

Grocery Stores: Safeway and Foodland (or Costco for bulk items)

Luau: The Grand Luau at Honua'ula (at the Grand Wailea)

Food with a view: Sarento's On The Beach (stellar service and to-die-for seafood), The Red Bar (at Gannon's, great happy hour and sunset view) and Honu Beach Seafood and Pizza (in Lahaina)

Other: Maui Zen Day Spa, Snorkel Bob's

You chose the perfect location for your honeymoon and we are ecstatic that you loved our service! Spoiled and relaxed are just what we hope guests feel when they enjoy E206.
