This gated condo property may be overpriced, but the location is wonderful. It’s quieter than many condo resorts and a bit more isolated since it’s in sleepy Makena, south of Wailea. All the buildings, except A and C, are oceanfront. Buildings B and F are our favorites. Be aware that there are a lot of stairs at this property. Living areas in the units are on the ocean side, leaving the bedrooms in the back. Units are large, and most are expensively furnished. There are two herb gardens on site. Their beach, Po‘olenalena, is one our favorites in South Maui.

The main rental agent, Destination Residences, has extra services such as private chefs, various food packages with local specialty items, fresh flowers, wines and spirits, special event cakes, and rental cars available from $36 and up per day.

A few units have room safes. Prices for the 2/2s (1,038–1,655 sq. ft.) are $409–$1,239, 3/3s (1,379–1,640 sq. ft.) are $759–$1,529. 3- or 14-night minimum.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just want to say I am very impressed with the information in this book. It’s just about perfect… I purchased my dream Hawaii vacation in July for a December departure so your book is invaluable to me as far as planning activities, and helping me budget before I go. And you’re local, so I know I’m getting the inside scoop. This book and the internet work great. And the maps in the book! What can I say about the maps – in color, good scale, ingenious! Definitely puts you ahead of the competition. Thanks for the amusing and HONEST commentary within. The incredible color photos… Thank you again for publishing a fantastic travelogue.”
