About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Hawaii tax ID GE-064-787-608-01

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 40” LED 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 South Maui

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!

Fantastic Condo with a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Kihei Surfside 405. It is the perfect vacation spot. The ocean view from the living room, dining room and kitchen can't be beat. You feel like you are surrounded by beautiful blue water. It is so relaxing and peaceful. Cara, the owner, is very accomadating and easy to work with. It is obvious that they take great care of their condo. Everything is top of the line. We hated to leave!

We would highly recommend Kihei Surfside 405 for a vacation in Maui.

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

Cara and Sig's condo is fabulous for views, comforts (every practical amenity has been thought of and included), and convenience. We walked to the dock for our snorkeling reservations (via Snorkeling Bob's) on the SeaFire which took us to the crater and Turtle Town. We enjoyed eating in and eating out. The kitchen is fully equipped and the complex has BBQs for use. Cara is a delight to work with and readily available for any questions or needs. We will send all future Maui travelers her way. Mahalo!

Perfect, relaxing Maui getaway

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be more happy with my experience here at Kihei Surfside. We arrived at night and I was so excited to wake up the next morning to the beautiful view. Seriously - you are right on the ocean. This property is perfectly located on the south end of Kihei, almost in Wailea. We were there in August and although Cara told us that the unit lacked air conditioning, we didn't find it overwhelmingly hot at all. The unit has brand new sliding glass doors that have screens on them, allowing you to hear the ocean and feel a breeze, which we took advantage of often. The suite also has one and a half bathrooms, making it perfect for two people getting ready. This place is so well taken care of and Cara and Sig really set you up for success. The location is perfect for going to other beaches (Big Beach is only a few minutes away by driving), restaurants, and getting groceries, and the drive to Lahaina isn't bad either - about 45 minutes. The lawn is where we spent most of our time sunbathing and relaxing while on the property. The neighbouring building has a massive beach with lots of opportunities to rent equipment for paddle boarding and snorkelling, which we did, but we having somewhere to lay where we wouldn't get sandy. There are tons of fish to see while snorkelling right in front of the property, as well as turtles!! The one thing we noted is that it was quite windy the whole time, so you could only really go in the ocean before 11 AM. We were thankful for the wind, however, because in the scorching heat it was nice to have a way to cool off. Ultimately, I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely consider visiting again next time I am in Maui!

Stunning view and home sweet home atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough wonderful things about this condo. The oceanside view is spectacular and there is absolutely everything you could ever need to find inside the condo to make your stay as if it were at your own home. After comparing to other condos in the area that our friends were staying at, we had an increased appreciation for the attention to detail that Cara provides both in the condo as well as the communication leading up to our stay. Seriously, would stay here again in a heartbeat if we ever end up back to Maui.

Wonderful condo with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this unit for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! It was clean and updated, the views from the lanai were spectacular and the grounds were very well kept. The pictures were all very accurate and we were very pleased. All the appliances were very nice and working great and the bed was by far the most comfortable we had stayed in on the island during our 16 day vacation. The only thing that would help is having AC and a washer/dryer in the unit (especially since we had that in the other place we stayed at previously so got used to it) but we already knew this going into it so we were prepared for both things. It was just a particularly humid time of the year but the fans they had helped tremendously. Also, the beach nearby was amazing (very beautiful and a nice swimming beach) and this condo is in a great location for getting to either Kihei or Wailea restaurants and shops. The condo had very nice beach chairs to use as well. We would definitely stay here again and loved every minute of it!! I highly recommend the Kihei Surfside Condos. Thank you Cara for opening up your beautiful place to us. Mahalo!!

Stunning view!!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! That is exactly what we said when we walked in the door! The view of the ocean, the immaculate lawn, the clean pool - just WOW! The condo was super clean and comfortable, we did not want to leave Maui! The kitchen was well stocked, the appliances worked, the shower was nice, beach chairs and cooler available, games, fans, nicely decorated, well situated, everything combined to make our stay in Maui one we will never forget! Thank you Cara and Sig!!
