Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: After having owned and operated a large B&B in Northern California for many years I decided to move to Maui. Kihei is the perfect spot for a lifestyle of mixing easy living with spectacular scenery and outdoor activities. The studio is the perfect way for me to offer an affordable vacation to others who appreciate the beauty of Maui. Those who have stayed in the studio through the years have been very pleased. Many have returned again and again and referred their friends to this economical vacation choice.

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea, HI, USA:
The Island Surf is in the heart of Maui's vacation paradise. Beautiful world class beaches and parks stretch all along Maui's south shore. Hawaii's climate in Kihei is hard to beat with most days balmy and warm. Following is the link or URL to The Island Surf Home Page where you can find additional information about The Island Surf and view additional pictures of the building and surrounding area.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The studio has all the essentials you need for a great vacation at an affordable price. You can enjoy the beach or any of the many other island activities during the day and still come home to a very nice place in the evening.
