Enjoy a secluded beach retreat without leaving the comforts of home at Makena Surf, a gated condo resort nestled on a private half-mile stretch of Paipu Beach on the Makena coastline in Wailea.

Condos are ideal for families and groups, with two to three bedrooms, fully stocked kitchens, spacious living areas, central air-conditioning, TVs with DVD players, washers/dryers and free Wi-Fi. You’ll want to stay a while -- all condos have floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto private lanais (or balconies) with unobstructed ocean views.

Two outdoor swimming pools with spa tubs and barbecue areas are surrounded by lush tropical gardens with hibiscus flowers, plumeria trees and cobblestone paths. Also on property, check out the sacred Hawaiian heiau (or ancient place of worship) and get active on the four tennis courts. The area is quiet, safe and secluded -- Fodor's says "privacy envelops the grounds."

There's great snorkeling right off the beach, so grab goggles and fins for the whole family. The Makena coastline features many other untamed beaches, including the 3,000-foot-long "Big Beach" or Makena State Beach Park, which Fodor's calls "one of Hawaii's most breathtaking beaches." 

Golf-lovers can hit the links at nearby Wailea Golf Club’s three seaside courses, while animal-lovers can spot whales (more than half the Pacific's humpback population winters in Hawaii).
