This sixth (top) floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after ocean side of the elevator, and has a spectacular ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and lanai. It is one of the larger, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath units (680 sq ft). The view of the ocean and its abundant wildlife is absolutely breathtaking.

The unit has been tastefully remodeled to a very high standard. The kitchen and vanities are done in rich cherry colored cabinetry (new in 2015) and gorgeous light brown granite countertops, which is consistent throughout the unit. The entire unit has porcelain flooring. All lighting in all rooms is controlled by dimmer switches.

The very attractive peninsula style kitchen is fully equipped with clean white appliances, including a refrigerator with ice maker, full size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, garbage disposer and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, coffee grinder, four slice toaster, blender, crock pot, rice maker and hand mixer. There is also a large selection of higher end pots and pans, baking pans, high quality knife set, spice rack and ample matching dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The living room has a queen size sofa-bed and a flat screen LCD color TV and DVD player, and of a multi speed ceiling fan. There is free wireless high speed internet and telephone with free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The oceanfront dining area has a round rattan glass table with 4 matching tropical armchairs.

The large, private lanai has a glass bistro table with two padded swivel rocker chairs – a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic oceanfront dinner!

The bedroom has a new King sized bed, high quality bedding, flat screen TV, multi speed ceiling fan, Hawaiian style rattan furniture, plantation shutters, closet, digital security safe and telephone.

The master bathroom has a full size, walk in shower, a beautiful cherry vanity with granite countertop. The matching half bath has been finished to the same high standard. Both bathrooms have Kohler toilets.

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.

This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for a beautifully remodeled unit in a spectacular location in the building with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui mountains.

The 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. The building underwent an extensive makeover during the summer of 2015, it was closed for six months. Each unit received new windows, doors and railings, and the building itself had a complete concrete restoration and paint. 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 barbecue 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. has been in business since 2003. We run our business from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. We personally own several units in the Kihei Surfside building, and also own units in Scottsdale, AZ, and Lake Country, British Columbia.

In Hawaii, we are not a property manager, but rather represent our own units as well as act as the online face and name for other friends and relatives within the Kihei Surfside Community who self-manage their properties and advertise them on the internet. Together, we have the largest selection of properties to rent at the Kihei Surfside, including many in the prime locations. We are registered in Hawaii as a Transient Accommodations Operator. We have an on island representative who is available in case any issues that arise with the units.

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. We enjoy walking the beach each morning, and spending time some time there soaking up some morning sun and swimming/snorkeling in the warm ocean. When we want some quieter time, we spend time on the oceanfront lawn. The grass is like a putting green - many people reach down to feel it to see if it is real - it looks like carpet! It is a great place to soak up some sun, read a great book, watch the whales, dolphins and turtles or catch a nap! 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.

Amazing location and great views.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the unit the location is great and so easy to get to all amenities and beaches. A quick five minute drive take you to some of the best beaches in Maui. There are a lot of local restaurants up the road to with really good food. We are really happy that the unit had coffee and nice amenities for the beach like the beach chairs and towels so we didn’t have to buy anything. The kitchen was nicely equipped with some basic spices but enough to cook meals without having to go out. The property itself is really nice and clean everyone who is staying there was super friendly and the barbeques were really nice to use. The views from the unit we’re awesome we saw turtles in the morning and the sunsets were unbelievable. We would definitely come back and stay here again when we visit Maui again.

We want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a tremendous experience at this condo/property. We loved the location in south Kihei which was away from the hustle and bustle, but yet still close enough to all the restaurants, shopping, and grocery stores. The condo was EXACTLY as described with all of the needed items for our visit. The atmosphere at the condo with all of the visitors and "regulars" was fun too...all so kind and welcoming. The view was beautiful and we loved having our meals overlooking the ocean and lava flows. The lawn we also found amazing. We had several meals on the lawn including supper at sundown where we able to experience the nightly blowing of the conch shell at sundown. We normally stay near Makena, but we will be returning to this property and hopefully this condo on our next return trip.

Fun time in 6th floor condo on lava rocky waterfro

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Maui even though it rained on us, I loved taking walks from the condo. I loved the close beach where I got to bogie board using a board from the condo, The kitchen had all the utensils one could want, I have happy with ice maker, the bed was comfortable. All the people we met were nice. Our lock on our door locked us out and everyone was quick to help us and we were back in the condo in half an hour or so. I would highly recommend this unit. I loved the deck with the high back chairs, I went swimming in the pool (it got pretty warm on the nicer days) as well as the ocean. I liked the fans as I don’t like air conditioning as it is often cold. The two bathroom were nice w lots of towels. We got good customer service for all involved.

A Good Choice

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the friendly & helpful support we received from Larry Rosenberg and assistant right from the inception, through booking and even check-in.

Convenient location with a wonderful view. The unit itself was clean, modern, and very well equipped with everything you'd need to enjoy your stay.

Spectacular sunset views

  • 4 of 5

Loved this property and its location. Walking distance to restaurants, beautiful views from the balcony. Owner was fabulous to deal with, and very accommodating. The unit is well stocked with kitchen items and plenty of towels. Only complaint would be the gentlemen at the desk when we checked in was not very helpful and rude, gives a bad first impression of the building. Luckily the unit and owner made up for his attitude.

Perfect in EVERY way!!

  • 5 of 5

Unit #604 and Surfside Kihei were both even exceeded our expectations which were based on lots of online descriptions and photos, email info, and a long list of very favorable reviews. None were exaggerated in any way. The views out the solid glass windows across the entire width (dinette and living areas) and from the lanai were indescribably beautiful and peaceful-ESPECAILLY at sunset if you choose to be there as apposed to on the beach or on a boat somewhere at that time. Mornings were also especially enjoyable for a quick cup of coffee in the cooler morning air. The pool/outdoor grilling/shuffleboard court and massive manicured lawn and lava beach are right below from the wonderful 6th floor unobstructed view-not to mention being about the 3rd unit from the end of the building nearest the water. The furniture was totally adequate and complete, as was the kitchen (could not think of a single thing one would need that was not there). We were blown away by the fact that there were 2 complete snorkel sets, 2 beach chairs, beach umbrella, sand bucket and toys, as well as foam floatation "noodles" and 1 or 2 small insulated coolers or bags included in the unit. Well removed from any sound from the elevators or any other mechanical equipment. Free parking adjacent to the building on only 10-12 steps away was a definite plus, if for no other reason than loading and unloading throughout the stay. Check-in and out were especially convenient, and you have a personalized code for room access, so no key to keep up with or worry with when around the corner to the beautiful sand beach, down to the pool, or away for the day exploring the island. The location is centrally located to the volcano*southeast), Hana(northeast), airport(north) or the Lahina(west) and/or Waimea(south) and we made it to all of them during our 4 day stay. The ONLY sad thing about our stay before moving on th Kauai was that we had to leave after only 4 nights!! Word to the wise in retrospect, we should have planned to stay at least 5 days and the house cleaning fee of $95 would have been waived. Overall-EXTREMELY pleased with the unit, accommodations, location, staff-not to mention the gorgeous weather and views, and would love to be able to stay there again if we are fortunate enough to return. Well worth the money, and is exactly as advertised. Extra 1/2 bath is always a welcome addition-just in case!
