Makena Surf, Top Notch

First visit to Maui and Makena Surf was an excellent choice. The quality of the condominium and property were top notch. Destinations staff was extremely helpful with all requests and inquiries. When we return it will be at Makena Surf.

This is an amazing property and very well managed. We hsd a wonderful 10 days with no worries about our accommodations and the amenities. The only slight issue we had was that the listing had 1bed/2beds and there was actually 1bed/1/bed. Since my son and daughter were sharing that room, the management companydelivered a roll away and that worked fine.
