About Diana Murdoch (808) 878-8789

We have been coming to Maui since 1980. In 1982 we were able to buy our lovely condo. We have been renting our condo to guests such as yourselves ever since then. We retired on Maui in 2001 and are now here to actively care for our condo. Kihei Surfside is the best oceanfront condo on the island. They have a wonderful group of people who come year after year, many of them renting from us. They have a beautiful sunset conch ceremony each night, in celebration of the setting sun. The guests are very inclusive and welcome new participants each night.

The view is amazing. Location to beach is awesome for a long morning walk.

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom is perfect for 1-2 people. Would be a little crowded if there are more. However, the location is awesome. Couldn’t ask for a better view. It is pretty quiet which is nice. Pretty awesome.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property and actually enjoyed not having a sandy beach right in front. Less noise and people walking by all the time. Made the property more private yet access to the water also.

609 Kihei Surfside - Our home away from home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

609 Kihei Surfside is a lovely condo with a beautiful view of palm trees waving in the wind at the ocean behind them. The view from 609 (top floor) is really amazing! Every morning we thought how blessed we were, as we sat watching the whales and turtles while having our breakfast on the lanai. The condo is fairly small compared to other condos we have stayed in in Hawaii, but the owner's placement of mirrors and choice of furnishings make it a very comfortable home away from home for two people. The accessibility to beaches (super close), lovely walking trail, huge lawn out front (with a nice pool and lots of lounge chairs), and ocean and sunset views that never cease to amaze are just a few of the perks you will enjoy while staying in 609. While we were there we had a few nights when conditioning would have been nice; however, there are a couple of good ceiling fans which help. The bedroom is kind of small, but the bed is comfy which is the main thing. Did I mention the floor to ceiling windows; wow, they are really something! Diana was great to work with - very responsive to our many e-mails and questions. I would not hesitate to recommend 609 to anyone looking for a romantic stay with a feeling of home on the island of Maui.

A couple's dream getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was my partner and my first time in Hawaii and we decided to stay in Maui because of great recommendations about the island. When we discovered Kihei Surfside we instantly knew it was beyond perfect for our stay. Diana was incredibly helpful with every question we had (we were travelling from Australia) and we were able to arrive on the island with confidence and start our trip relaxed and stress-free.

The suite itself is absolutely beautiful and was an extra romantic option for us; with a king sized bed, top floor views of the breathtaking scenery, and lots of mirrors to be able to admire my partner at all angles of the room! As a young 24 year old couple, it had everything we needed to make the most of our stay, with every imaginable utensil and appliance available to us. We were able to do a grocery shop and maximise our time in our suite, enjoying romantic homemade dinners on the lanai, watching the sunset over the ocean.

Kihei Surfside is an amazing resort with more options than we even thought we would make use of! But oh boy, did we love every aspect of it. The beach, just meters away, was unreal and stretched a lot longer than most beaches in the area. The water was always warm and there was plenty of space for lounging on the sand without being surrounded by others. On the main side of the resort is a lush and beautiful grassy area which we ended up spending more time on. It was a peaceful spot for sun-baking by the seaside without getting sandy or for making use of the BBQ and enjoying the sunset. There is also a trail that winds along a rocky cliff-side that made for great early-morning walks and exploring the other beaches (which were not as great as Kihei Surfside's beach but still nice).

We rented a car at the airport from Thrifty Car Rental which was the another great decision we made (second to staying here). There was plenty of parking at the resort and Maui's #1 beach (according to one website), Makena beach, was a short drive away and we returned on several occasions. There are great restaurants and shops nearby and the supermarket was only a 2 minute drive up the road and it was so convenient we returned on a daily basis to get extra supplies.

Overall, this was everything we could have ever hoped for on a romantic and I am so grateful for how much closer I feel with my partner after such an indescribable experience. We were so sad to leave the paradise island and return to reality!
