Our elegant fourth-floor condo affords you all the conveniences of home, with all the sun and fun of Hawaii right outside your door!

Book easy, breathe easy:

Unlike most owners at Kihei Surfside, our family lives in Kihei and we make a point of checking the condo before your arrival to make sure it is in great condition. You may contact us directly instead of dealing with a busy rental agency!

Perfect for a romantic getaway for two, this completely renovated condo features a collection of limited-edition prints on the walls, and a new 56” smart TV in the living/dining room. The condo also comes complete with

• HD cable service and a Blu-ray DVD player

• complimentary wireless high-speed Internet

• complimentary long-distance calling anywhere in the U.S. and Canada

• a fully equipped and very practical kitchen, including spices for your cooking convenience

• a wonderful king-size bed with reading lights and well-stocked quality linens

• adjacent master bath with a step-in tiled shower stall

• a small DVD library, games and beach equipment

Additional features:

• ocean-front swimming pool

• ocean-front BBQs

• less than a minute walk to Keawakapu Beach (We provide the beach towels, chairs and a cooler.)

• no pets allowed, smoking not allowed (including the lanai)

NOTE: the entire Kihei Surfside building is not air-conditioned. We do provide high quality ceiling fans and have additional floor fans available. The warmer summer season is discounted accordingly.

The Kihei Surfside complex is known for its gorgeous expanse of lawn, wonderful ocean-front gas barbecues, picnic tables, shuffleboard, and a beautiful heated ocean-front swimming pool.

Sunsets are truly a “happening” here. You might find yourself sharing in the traditional Hawaiian ritual of blowing the conch shell to celebrate the close of another day in paradise at the Kihei Surfside.

There are frequent humpback whale sightings from our property in the winter months. (The Pacific Whale Foundation uses this location to do an annual whale count.)

Just steps away from our complex is the start of Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in south Maui. Here you can enjoy activities including swimming, boogie boarding and snorkeling. Right next to Kihei Surfside is a famous reef where you might meet our favorite turtle, Sebastian, along with his turtle friends, the elusive eels and bright-colored fish among the beautiful coral reefs. You can walk or jog for a mile on this pristine sandy beach, admiring multi-million-dollar private homes and views of the islands of Molokini and Kaho'olawe.

About Cara

Our family had vacationed in Kihei every January since 2004. In 2010 we moved to sunny Kihei. The next logical step for us was to buy a vacation rental that our friends and family can come visit us!

We hope to welcome you at Kihei Surfside 405 soon! We are sure you will enjoy your stay!

Cara purchased this condo in 2010

Why Cara chose Kihei

We fell in love with this building, loving the quiet oceanfront location. #405 was listed for sale in September 2010. We looked at the condo, met the former owners, Cynthia & Larry, and fell in love with both the condo but also the way they operated their vacation rental! We went down to the parking lot and started writing up an offer! We are thrilled to carry on their tradition of providing a beautiful vacation condo for our guests!

What makes this condo unique

As Maui residents, we take pride in providing you with an elegantly beautiful home away from home! You may contact us directly during your stay, rather than dealing with a busy rental agency! We live just a short 5 minute drive from the condo and are here to handle any concerns.

We also own three other condos (in different buildings). Check out our website for more information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for having such a home-like place for us to enjoy our Maui visit... your well-stocked kitchen is delightful!

We loved being so close to the snorkel spot and beach... hearing the surf sounds was very soothing.

We hope to return next year. Your bird book and fish book were helpful. We identified a wandering tattler and the francolin! Mahalo and aloha!

Great to be back at the Surfside!

  • 5 of 5

I'v stayed at the Surfside in the past, but never this particular condo. Never so close to the pool end either! And the first time since they did all the exterior work. What a difference the floor to ceiling windows make! Rented unit #405.

The owners were wonderful to work with. They only rent to two people, even though the sofa in the living room is a fold out sofa. I was travelling with a friend, so I was going to be using the sofa bed. In the past, I always put the mattress on the floor. Have you ever had a good sleep on those sofa beds, with you feeling every bit of that metal frame? The owner actually bought a queen sized foam mattress for me to use! And honestly, I never needed it. I slept on that sofa bed for 7 nights, without using the mattress pad, and without putting the mattress on the floor. I have never slept on a sofa bed so soundly before! I couldn't feel any metal whatsoever.

Owners have thought of everything for this place. Tommy Bahama beach chairs in the closet. Boogie boards, noodles, umbrella too. A first aid kit in the small bathroom, in the medicine cabinet. Never needed it though!

Kitchen supplies are amazing. We didn't do any cooking, but the pots and pans are high quality, as are the knives. The knives will stay that way, as long you don't put them in the dishwasher! Spice rack with all the spices you could possibly need. Some left over condiments in the fridge from previous renters, as well as some food items in the cupboard.

There are DVDs to choose from in the condo, as well as a lot of books. The TV is huge! Directions on how to turn it on too! That is always nice to have, as it can be very frustrating, when you are not used to the set up at different condos.

The fridge is great, and I love that the freezer is at the bottom. And an ice machine in there! No need to fiddle with ice trays. The small appliances are high quality as well. A 4 slice toaster, a kettle! And the blender is a Vitamix! Very good quality! There is a drawer full of plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and ziploc bags. Another drawer has felt pens, tape, and stuff you need to mail something home.

Surfside doesn't have AC, and honestly, it has never bothered me in the least. But there is a huge fan in the condo, if you need to use it. With the lanai door open, along with the front door, enough of a breeze goes through that we never needed the fan.

I was reluctant to book this condo, being so close to the pool, but it was quiet. I would rent it again!

This is THE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

Could not say enough about our over all experience with this rental and so glad we chose this one! Cara the owner was very responsive and great to deal with. The unit itself is amazing, Very clean, very comfortable and the view is breathtaking! We found this place to be very convenient to restaurants, snorkel spots, Tons of beaches and all the Boating tours/activities are in walking distance to the ramp. We are 100% sure if we go back to Maui, this is where we'll stay again.

Breath Taking Million Dollar View

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular view with the sound of the ocean to put yourself to sleep. Kihei Surfside centrally located on the Island for easy access to all amenities. The property it self is well groomed, the greens look like a high end golf course. I would make my stay again at Kihei Surfside with the wonderful owners Cara and Sig. Relax........
