The unit has been completely remodelled and refurnished. The kitchen has maple cabinets imported from Canada, granite countertops, Professional Series stainless steel appliances including quiet dishwasher (many of the one bedroom units at the Surfside still do not have a dishwasher) and a large side by side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser.

The living room has a queen size sofa bed with deluxe mattress, built in granite desk with plugs, telephone and high speed internet and wireless internet, wall mounted 37' Vizio LCD TV with DVD/VCR player, stereo with CD player and Ipod dock, and a private lanai.

The unit is fully equipped with utensils, fresh linens and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler. Umbrellas, boogie boards and snorkel gear are not supplied, but are often left behind in the units by other guests – no guarantees.
In case the daily trade winds let you down, the unit is equipped with multi-speed, ceiling fans in both the living room and bedroom. Laundry facilities are available on site.
The property itself features an extensive and immaculately kept lawn area with dozens of loungers, with a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbeque facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and lanais. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui, where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and the luxurious hotels of Wailea, or swim or snorkel with turtles and a multitude of tropical fish.
It is customary for the residents of the Kihei Surfside to gather each evening for cocktails on the shore near the tiki torches for a traditional Hawaiian sundown ceremony. This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fellow vacationers!
