Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This unit is a fifth floor, luxuriously appointed one bedroom, 1.5 bath condominium at the Kihei (Key-Hay) Surfside Resort, Maui, has a 180 degree absolute direct oceanfront view and the islands of Lanai, Kaho'olawe and Molokini are clearly visible nearby.

The unit has a full kitchen, flat screen plasma TV with DVD player, stereo with CD player and IPOD dock, telephone, wireless hi-speed internet and a private lanai. The living room has a queen size sofa bed. The unit has been extensively renovated, including new kitchen with granite countertops and flooring. The bedroom has a king bed with ensuite bath and security safe.

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. Laundry facilities are available on site. 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 barbecue 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.

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!

Kihei Surfside Resort is located in the 2900 block of S. Kihei Road, at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator.

There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort. The Grand Wailea Hotel, The Shops at Wailea and Wailea/Makena Golf Courses are close by and Kahalui airport is just twenty-five minutes away.

Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There is free parking on site. Just a few minutes from the airport are Costco, Wal-Mart and Sears. A short drive from the resort is Safeway, Foodland and Star Market, where you can stock up on groceries. Right across the parking lot from the Surfside is an upscale deli/grocery store for last minute items, and a yoga studio.

The world class golf facilities of Wailea and Makena are nearby. Windsurfing, and many other water activities are also available nearby. Some of the best snorkeling on Maui is steps from the property. The Pacific Foundation conducts their annual whale count from the Surfside property. The Kihei boat ramp, from where the pleasure boats and sightseeing/snorkeling tours depart, is a five minute walk.

Kihei town itself is only a few minutes away by car and boasts many fine restaurants, video and gift shops. Historical Lahaina and beautiful Kaanapali beach are a scenic 25 minute drive towards the western part of Maui.

Why Larry Rosenberg chose Kihei

We are convinced this property offers the best value and location for oceanfront accommodation in the south Kihei/Wailea area. All of the units are direct oceanfront, and the property has the most amazing oceanfront lawn area spanning over 2 acres, which is unique to our property. The best part about the Surfside are the friendly, happy people, and the great accommodating staff!

What makes this condo unique

The property is located right at the north end of world famous Keawakapu Beach. It is one of the finest white sand beaches anywhere. It stretches for miles past some of the most expensive homes and hotels in all of Maui. Great for walking or running. There is a reef right at our property that has the most amazing snorkeling we have seen anywhere. Unlike most other oceanfront properties in Kihei, the Surfside is perched right on the sea shore, set back several hundred feet from S. Kihei Road, so you hear the ocean, not the road noise. The complex has two high end stainless steel barbeques and picnic tables right at the ocean. Almost every night, we use the barbeque and eat our dinner at the oceanfront lit by tiki torches.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I enjoyed our trip to Hawaii. Both rooms that we stayed in were very nice. Great views! Very Peaceful. Cooked some Ahi on the grills. Nice to have breakfast and lunch in our rooms. Close to the beach. We look forward to coming back. We appreciate the ease of getting our rooms and reservations. Aloha!

Fall asleep to the sound of the surf

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exceptional - gorgeous view, clean, had everything you need for a day at the beach. Very quiet - if you leave the patio door & bedroom door open you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Beautiful Keawakapu beach is steps away, and Zac's deli/market is super convenient to have right across the parking lot. We saw turtles sunbathing on the rocks from our lanai, and watched the sunsets every night. 1-2 mile walk (or very short drive!) to all the shops/dining in Kihei, and easy drive to the beautiful Wailea beaches. Maui perfection!

Owner's Response: We work hard to provide our guests with the best experience possible and really appreciated you taking the time to let us know about your Kihei Surfside vacation. It is wonderful that you were able to listen to the waves and watch the turtles from your lanai and we are happy you found the location to be super convenient to everything; beach, deli, shopping, and restaurants in Kihei. We look forward to being of service next time your travels bring you to Maui. Mahalo! Rosies Rentals

Another Great Week at Kihei Surfside

  • 5 of 5

Excellent. Hard to find a better location, and accommodations were wonderful. The bathrooms, bedrooms and especially the kitchen was well-appointed. We've been to KSS 8 times and the place has never failed to impress. It almost feels like our 2nd home and what an awesome 2nd home it is. Very, clean and very well maintained. I'd recommend Kihei Surfside to anyone looking to stay in Maui.

Phenomenal condo with perfect views

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect- close to Wailea/Makena but quieter and more affordable than the oversized resorts that overtake that area. Unit #203 is gorgeous and faces the ocean. It is equipped with everything you could need and the owner is very responsive. One closet is full of beach towels, boards, beach balls, chairs, etc. I was initially worried that the lack of A/C would be an issue in August but it was actually perfect with these breezeway panels that open in the bedroom. The sun sets right in front of the property and 5 Palms Restaurant (right next door) has a delicious beachside happy hour everyday. We went here a couple of nights to eat sushi and drink cocktails while we watched the sun go down. I would definitely stay here again!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this unit and property is so wonderful. The sound of waves crashing outside at night, the sight of turtles from the lanai at breakfast, the quiet peaceful lawn, 5 Palms restaurant right next door, lawn games available at the office, the pool with an ocean view, the stocked kitchen...the list goes on. Rosie's Rentals are amazing and allowed us to have a late check-out of 6pm since our flight didn't leave until late at night. We have been to Maui many times and this has been our favourite place to say. We will definitely be back and we highly recommend it!

beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The view is exactly as shown. It's absolutely beautiful and you can watch the sunset over the sea. Very well stocked, clean condo with pretty much anything you need as far as kitchen equipment and linens. The building staff are very helpful and most shopping and restaurants are about five minutes away. I only took one star off because there is no air conditioning in the building and we were there in July, when a couple of days felt extremely hot even with all the fans on and the lanai and bedroom windows open. I think it would be an ideal location in the autumn or winter, when the weather's a bit cooler and you may be able to watch whales from the condo.

5 Star view, 2 star accommodations

  • 2 of 5

Clean. No AC, which would have been very appreciated during our two day stay. Kitchen has been updated but the rest of the unit could use redecorating. Pool nice. Ocean steps away but no beach, lava rock.

Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The Kihei Surfside Resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator. There is free parking on site. The resort is a twenty-five minute drive from the Kahului Airport (OGG). Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There are also taxis available at the airport (about $50), a shuttle bus and public transportation.

Virtually all of the properties and resorts in Kihei are either located right on busy S. Kihei Rd., or if they are set back from the road - are across from the street from the ocean. One unique feature of the Kihei Surfside is that it is located at the quiet end of S. Kihei Road, AND is set back 300 feet from S. Kihei Road AND is located right on the ocean! Because it is hard to see from the road, many first time Surfside guests say that even though they have visited Kihei many times, they had never seen the resort!

Another unique feature of the property is that we have a 2 acre, immaculately kept oceanfront 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. In fact, the Pacific Whale Foundation conducts their annual whale count from our property. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui (voted Maui’s most romantic), where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and the luxurious hotels of Wailea, including the Grand Wailea Hotel. 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. Feel free to join in – everyone is welcome - this is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fellow vacationers!

There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort; the Five Palms and Sarentos on the Beach. The Five Palms is known as the best happy hour on Maui, the bar menu and drinks are half price between 5 and 7:30PM, and after 9PM. Right across the parking lot from the Surfside is an upscale deli/grocery/wine store, Zach’s. Other larger grocery stores in Kihei, a short drive from the resort are Safeway, Foodland and Star Market. The island also has a Costco, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Sears.

There is never any shortage of things to do on Maui. The Shops at Wailea, Wailea Golf Club, Wailea Tennis Club and Makena Golf Club are within a five minute drive. The Kihei boat ramp is located 100 yards north of the property. Several of the tour operators for snorkeling and diving launch here. See Maui Dive Shop, Makena Coast Dive Charters, and Blue Water Rafting. Maalaea Harbor is a 20 minute drive, and from there you would get the fishing charters and sunset dinner cruises, or visit the Maui Ocean Center. The old whaling town of Lahaina is a 45 minute drive; from there you can ride on the Atlantis Submarine, or go for a boat trip with the Pacific Whale Foundation. Helicopter tours are available from the airport. See Blue Hawaiian Helicopters or Air Maui. Feeling adventurous? Try riding a bike down Mount Haleakala - Haleakala Bike Company. For exercise enthusiasts, there are a couple of gyms nearby – Powerhouse Gym, Valley Isle Fitness, and Pilates Maui. There is also an oceanfront yoga studio Maui Yoga Path right across the parking lot.

We think this property has the best location in Kihei!
