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.

Laid back, immaculate and can't wait to come back
The photos tell the story. You are steps away from the beach. Two great restaurants within an easy walk. Great for snorkeling or just relaxing. Far from the crowds in other areas of Maui.
Great stay at Kihei Surfside
We have stayed at Kihei Surfside a few times now and have always loved the building and property. This was our first time renting through Rosie’s rentals and we will definitely go through them again, everything was very well organized and and our stay was seamless. The suite was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay relaxed, such as cooking utensils etc. We would definitely recommend this property.
Perfect spot to unwind and relax!
My husband and I spent 10 wonderfully relaxing days at Kihei Surfside. Our condo was absolutely perfect for the two of us. The condo was as described on the website and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals in. We enjoyed walking out of the patio doors and the ocean was only steps away and sitting on our lanai watching the sunsets was such a treat. The location is fantastic with beautiful beaches for sun bathing, playing or walking. The owners were great and we had no difficulties whatsoever. My only suggestion would be to upgrade the mattress and pillows in the bedroom.
Exquisite location and view-ideal convenient location-very well kept premises-look forward to returning
Life is good on the lanai....Surfside 104
This ground floor unit and extremely large lanai were perfect for a small family vacation. Easy access to pool, BBQ and greens were well used by all. Unit itself is small, but well equipped - ie. the ice maker was busy all week :-) Property management was very attentive and helpful. Parking in the lot during spring break was tight, but we managed a close-by spot almost every night. Only negative was the early check-out (10am). Would definitely return to this Maui gem.
We are happy to hear you found your Maui gem and would definitely return to the Kihei Surfside. KS104 is one of our most sought after ground floor units for the reasons you mentioned; close proximity to pool, BBQ, and lawn. Our goal is to provide a quality product and excellent service. It sounds like we met our goals! We hope to see you again soon. Mahalo. ~RosiesRentals~
Wish we Could Have Stayed FOREVER!
This ground floor unit exceeded all of my expectations and then some! If you are thinking of spending a little less to stay somewhere with a little less view or a little less space or a little less anything...Don't DO It. I could not possibly express how wonderful this unit is and how much we enjoyed having the ocean right outside of our patio door. I have stayed many times in Maui but never stayed in an Ocean front unit.
The condo itself is very well equipped and laid out wonderfully for having the entire family help with cooking. There is plenty of space to move around and enough counter space to accommodate the everyone. We cooked every day we were there and used the oceanfront BBQ nightly.
I cannot think of anything that would make this place nicer to stay in. If you are considering this unit at all BOOK IT!
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!
