About the property

Clean, updated and fun! Close to everything!

Something different than the normal condo.

Located in Maalaea Harbor. Situated on the highest spot on the property which gives you a perfect view of the Haleakala and the harbor.

Ice cold air conditioning! Extra large deck gives you that indoor outdoor feeling with plenty of space to have dinner outside or just read a book on the lounge chairs and soak in the sun. Its a perfect surf shack

Great spot for people focusing on exploring Maui and getting out just looking for a spot to crash. We are the least expensive stand alone rental this close to the water on Maui!

From the deck, gaze out and watch the sun rise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, the world’s fastest surfable wave.

We don't do check in's on a handful of days. Dec 24,25,31 Jan 1 to allow our small staff to enjoy the holiday with their families.

Airstream is situated backing up to the aquarium. It can be loud sometimes from their generators so please be aware.

Beautiful location. Kristine is a wonderful host. Area is very nice. The deck off the front of the Airstream was our favourite feature. Exactly as described and cleaner than expected.

It is done well. Cold a/c. The shower is a little small. It is a nice place for a couple of days for the single traveler.

Great spot for the minimalist traveler

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay at the Ocean View Surf Shack -- very central location (in between Lahaina and Kehei) and parking was not an issue at all.

The airstream is SUPER cute and had all the essentials you would need (some containers for food storage, utinsils, candles, shampoo/conditioner, beach towels and shower towels). It does not have a cutting board which I thought could have been helpful. The bed is comfortable and shower/bathroom were very clean and the air conditioner worked very well.

The only negative I would say is that it's VERY loud as the airstream is situated right behind the aquarium as noted in the bio. If you don't mind, then not an issue but i would say most people would find it pretty distracting.

Overall, cool place for the minimalist traveler looking for a unique travel experience!

The Surf Shack was “as advertised.” I found the unit extremely clean, well maintained, and a bargain

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved it! From the initial read of the listing to check-in through check-out everything about The Surf Shack was a winner! Kristine was an excellent host and her quick responsiveness was amazing. The entire process was seamless and the stay experience was refreshing. Highly recommend this unit - Cleanliness, value proposition, a unique experience, a great host, and location are clear benefits to choosing The Surf Shack.

Super cute and clean.

  • 4 of 5

The location worked well for my husband and I. We stayed for 9 nights. We are the type of travellers to be out exploring throughout the day, so this worked well for us.

We purchased food from Costco, would make sandwiches and the little airstream had plastic reuseable containers that we would use to pack lunch. Also, there is a cooler and ice packs. At one point ants came in the trailer and got into our cereal and fresh croissants. I contacted the owner and she had a guy come to spray ant deterrent, we never had a problem after that. (The deterrent was sprayed outside and didn't affect us whatsoever). The only thing we wished the airstream had was a BBQ on the deck, but we survived just fine without. It is a relatively new rental so perhaps a BBQ is in the works.

The property as said in the description is backing onto the aquarium. The generator comes on every so often but only for a short time. At night we had the a/c going and the fan above the bed for white noise. Again, if you plan on spending all your time there, this might get annoying after awhile. But for us, we were only there to have our morning coffees and cereal or in the evening to enjoy an iced cold beer on the deck and watch the boats come in.

There is a beach within walking distance at the end of the street where the condos are situated. It is very private and quiet.

Overall, we are very satisfied with our stay. The bed is comfortable too.
