Overview

About the property

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

Hawaii tax ID GE/TA-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 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 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!

Perfect place for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We showed up and Cara was there to make sure we got settled, knew where everything was and to answer any questions.

The condo is well laid out with all the necessary amenities plus some.

We enjoyed the fact that there is no building to the immediate north and a large grass area just in front of the view. The pool is right below the condo, four floors down. Outdoor shower makes for a great after snorkel, beach, swim wash off.

Local shops make it easy to buy whatever you need. We loved the fresh poke!

The location is great. We went up to Kaanapali to check it out and were so glad we weren't staying with the hoard up there. It is a good one hour away depending on traffic.

The point the condo is on is looking north. The reef outside is alive and well stretching from the breakwater around to the beach. We saw all sorts of fish and critters.

South Kihei is a nice almost suburban like atmosphere. Just north of the posh Wailea and more great snorkeling south of Wailea.

Thank you Cara and Sig for allowing us the use of the condo!

Perfect location for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Kihei surfside was such a wonderful choice for our honeymoon getaway. The renters were great to work with and the condo itself was lovely! Clean, updated, and well put together.

The view was incredible and the location was close to all sorts of shops and restaurants in Kihei and Wailea- not to mention just steps away from a long series of connected beaches that run behind some of the fancy hotels. We snorkeled and paddleboarded right near the condo, and also used some of the fun beach gear that Cara and Sig had in their condo. It was the perfect mix of retreat and activity. We enjoyed being able to make our own meals, and loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves. (Even slept on the pull out sofa bed a few nights so that we could see the sunrise).

We highly recommend saving the money you'd spend on a big resort hotel and stay somewhere like Kihei surfside- you can still get that resort feel from the surrounding area, while being a little more independent- plus... in case I wasn't clear already... the view is just unbeatable. :)

AMAZING !!!

  • 5 of 5

Cara was prompt with every question we had as well as with returning the damage deposit

WE felt once we arrived we really did not have to leave

Everything at your door step, the ocean,snorkelling ,fishing,walking trails ,restaurants and pool !!!

Best of all was the view from your lanai of the sunsets.. no need for a sunset cruise

Turtles swimming about as you are walking

COndo was immaculately clean and had everything you could possibly need for a spectacular vacation !!!!!!

This was our 5th time to maui and we have stayed in 2 other condos,a house and the Grand wailea... none of these matched up to Surfside #405

We will stay here now every time we come to Maui

Beautiful, clean, spacious

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. One could almost never leave because of the awesome view and peacefulness of the room. The kitchen is well stocked. When one does leave the room - there is no need to get in the car because there are miles of beach to walk with places to eat within walking distance.

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!
