About the property


Wake up next to the ocean. Enjoy coffee on the lanai or front lawn right in front of the waves. This second floor condo includes all new granite countertops, eco-friendly bamboo cabinets, stainless appliances, including dishwasher, a 42-inch flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, sound system with iPod docking station, and a queen size sleeper sofa in front of the panoramic ocean views. The unit is tiled throughout with beautiful Italian tile. The bathroom has a lovely stone-tiled walk-in shower. The bedroom comes equipped with a king bed, plantation shutters and a multi-speed overhead fan. With the new queen sofa bed, this unit sleeps 3 comfortably, and is fully furnished with luxury linens.

This home-away-from-home is equipped with beach chairs,, umbrella and towels, a locking safe for valuables, free high speed internet with wi-fi access and free long distance to US & Canada. This immaculate Kihei Surfside condo has everything you’ll need for your dream Hawaii vacation.

Our luxury oceanfront vacation condo at the beautiful Kihei Surfside Resort in Kihei, Maui, is steps away from the ocean and offers turtle, dolphin and seasonal (Dec-April) whale watching, and spectacular Maui sunsets all year round. One of our favorite past times is drinking our morning coffee on the lawn and watching the sea turtles swimming in the water in front of the building. The rocky beach front offers excellent snorkeling, best accessed from the beautiful golden sand of Keawakapu beach, one of Maui’s best beaches, just steps away behind the neighboring Mana Kai Resort. A general store and the acclaimed Five Palms restaurant are also available at the Mana Kai.

A 5 minute drive takes you to all the shops and restaurants of Kihei town or the Shops at Wailea. The condo is at the end of a long driveway from S. Kihei road, so that you don’t hear the traffic noise – just the ocean waves.

Our building, the Kihei Surfside, does not have air conditioning. We are directly oceanfront and the Pacific trade winds blow in right off the ocean each afternoon. These trade winds, along with ceiling fans in the living and bedrooms, keep the condo comfortable for most people. People who have stayed at the Kihei Surfside love it and tend to return year after year. Please check out our reviews from many happy guests.

About David and Sara

After many fabulous vacations at the Kihei Surfside Resort in Maui, we determined that it was time to buy our own piece of paradise. When we remodeled our condo in June, we wanted it to have everything for our guests that we would want. We believe that we have thought everything that you could think of for that 'perfect' vacation.

David and Sara purchased this condo in 2009

We love Maui and we love the Kihei Surfside. The location couldn't be better - right on the ocean, away from the noise of S. Kihei Road, next to the beach, and 5 minutes from Shopping and Dining, the Kihei Surfside is perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Sara, thank you for sharing your Maui condo with us. We enjoyed our relaxing and comfortable time here. Your unit is wonderful and you did a great job remodeling it. What's not to like - 85 degrees- trade winds blowing - palm trees swaying - the pool and mostly the view. We would definitely come back. Aloha, Gail and Leon.

Great Condo, Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights at the condo and loved it!. The condo is well equipped. We were happy that Makena beach was not far away until we went to the beach next door, that is now our favorite beach. Very convenient having that great beach right next door. Great sand, great waves and little coral in the water. I wish I had tried the boogie board before the last day of our stay, it was so much fun. Beautiful view from the condo, we never closed the blinds. Nice easy walk to Kihei. So many whales to see this time of the year. We tried the 5 palms restaurant next door. The view is stunning, great for a sunset dinner, I suggest a reservation. We were there for New Years Eve lots of fireworks around the area, we took a short drive for some gelato and saw many spectacular displays. We will recommend this condo to friends and would defiantly stay again!

Very enjoyable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - albeit a short one. The condo was very clean and well appointed with a great view of the ocean scenery. The location is right at the start of the beach with a well stocked store in the hotel next door. All in all, a great spot for a stay in the Kihei area.

Well located but kind of noisy

  • 4 of 5

Great location! This particular unit could use a good floor scrubbing and the balcony furniture needs replacing. Otherwise we had a great time.

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

Unit #208 was a great place to enjoy our Maui vacation! The setting is beautiful and the condo is clean and well-maintained. Staff is friendly and very helpful. We love walking the gorgeous beaches, watching beautiful sunsets, whales, and sea turtles. Two of our favorite restaurants to walk to are Sarrento's and Five Palms--both have great food and beautiful sunset, sunrise views!

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo, with amazing views! It would be awesome during whale season! We have been to Maui several times, and this is by far the best place we've stayed. The kitchen is well-equipped. We have our favorite restaurants in Kihei, so we didn't cook much. We enjoyed several lunches at Café O' Lei, dinner at Cuatro, and breakfast at Kihei Café. Five Palms is right next door, with a great happy hour for mai tai's, appetizers, and sushi. It was a great find! We appreciated the high-quality beach chairs, snorkel gear, and boogie boards. There are even binoculars in the condo. Which would be great for whale watching. This is a great condo, in a great location. The most green space of any property that I know of in south Maui. Great for sunset picnics. The parking was convenient, and you can also walk to beaches and restaurants. We will definitely return. We loved it!

Great place to stay, and conveniently located to sites on the island.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was what the VRBO site advertised ... clean, nicely furnished, kitchen stocked with dishes and utensils, and with a beautiful view. The only minor suggestion I could recommend would be to get a soap dish for the bathroom counter. Elizabeth, the condo manager, promptly answered my phone call from the Maui airport when we arrived, and called us the following day at the condo to be sure our wants were met. We appreciated the personalized care!
