Wonderful views, beautiful gardens, beautiful beach. The mornings were even more beautiful than the sunsets from our room. The beach in the mornings and evenings were nearly all to ourselves. we could see sea turtles from our balcony.

The location was perfect, the Ocean view is ideal. Housekeeping did a great job of keeping the place tidy. I recommend booking excursions through trip adviser. It is very clear Concierge wants all bookings through them. My advice, book excursions through trip adviser.

F208 was overall Excellent! Grounds were immaculate, room was fantastic, view was amazing. Location was a little bit of a drive from many things but was in a quiet, secure, gated condo community. Pool was small but nice and clean. High quality gas grills on lanai and on property. Very short walk to the beach.

Great combination of killer views, great snorkeling, and choice of two to three beaches (depending on how you count). If you can afford the prices try it. It is away from the bigger resorts and restaurants... for some a positive, for others a negative.

Beautifully situated between two beaches in Makena, the "turtle town" area of Maui. Nicely landscaped and maintained grounds and even an herb garden available for use if you are cooking. The pool area is very nice and beach access is so easy and close. Great snorkeling right off the beaches and in the afternoon when the wind picks up, lots...

Beautiful and great location. Staff member error allowing late checkout but then not having it available ruined our last day. The rest of our stay, great. Quiet well maintained condos with turtle snorkeling right outside.

We are a family of 6 and loved this unit (A 101) location. The large grass area was perfect for our active kids! We loved the security (Dave) who walked/Segwayed around the property to make sure everything was safe. We loved the friendliness of the staff (inside/out). Our unit was very good. The fridge needs to be retired (I wont...

The condos are clean & modern. The beach is the best place to be for snorkeling, swimming & boogie boarding. The location of the McKenna Surf condos is perfect for shopping & dining & the swimming pools are the cleanest pools.

Stayed on 3rd floor of B building. Incredible views. Located on a great beach with excellent snorkelling. Very quiet and family oriented. Great choice if you want to get away from the crowds and don't need resort amenities.
