About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This fourth floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after proximate ocean side of the building, and has a spectacular ocean view from the living room, dining area, lanai and kitchen areas. It is one of the larger one bedroom units with 1.5 bathrooms (680 sq ft). The view of the ocean, its abundant wildlife and contrasting well-maintained green grass lawn area which hosts putting, shuffleboard and space to relax by the sea, is absolutely breathtaking.

The unit has been newly remodeled (September 2016) to a very high standard. The kitchen and half bath vanities are done in rich cherry wood cabinetry (new in Sept 2016) and gorgeous grey granite countertops, which is consistent throughout the unit. The entire unit has cherry plank flooring. The lighting in the kitchen and dining room is controlled by dimmer switches.

The kitchen is fully equipped with gorgeous, high quality stainless steel appliances, including a side by side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser, full size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, garbage disposer and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, blender and rice maker. There is also a large selection of higher end pots and pans, baking pans, knife set, and ample matching dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The living room has a queen size pullout sofa-bed and a brand new 48” flat screen LCD color TV with HD cable box and DVD player, and 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 top table with 4 matching tropical chairs.

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

The bedroom has a high quality pillow top King sized bed, high quality bedding, flat screen TV, multi-speed ceiling fan, Hawaiian style furniture and large closet with a newly installed safe for safekeeping of your valuables.

The master bathroom has a full size, walk in shower and a wood vanity with Corian countertop. Both bathrooms have Kohler toilets.

The unit is fully equipped with fresh linen and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer and beach gear that includes folding chairs, beach towels, boogie boards and a cooler.

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 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, 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 - this is a great opportunity to meet your neighbours and fellow vacationers!

There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort; the Five Palms and Sarentos on the Beach. You can see other close by restaurants on this map.

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 snorkelling and diving launch here. See Maui Dive Shop, Makena Coast Dive Charters, and Blue Water Rafting. Maalaea harbour 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 a yoga studio Maui Yoga Path right across the parking lot.

We do not officially endorse any of these products or services, but provide you these links to help you plan a great vacation!

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. 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.

This is a wonderful unit & we would gladly return.

  • 5 of 5

We love the Surfside and Unit 404 is ideally situated Oceanside. It is well appointed and nicely maintained. Rosey's Rentals - who handles booking for this unit - is great to work with. They are quick to respond and bend over backwards to meet all of your needs. We have stayed in several units at the Surfside and would happily stay in Unit 404 again.

Another great holiday in a cosy well apppointed un

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Surfside and we weren't disappointed. The unit was clean and well appointed except for a kettle which Barrie promptly

provided when we called. Everything worked out perfectly including the

Thanksgiving dinner that we booked. The food was outstanding and although the winds were strong we managed to enjoy a wonderful variety of dishes. Top marks to those that prepared in their units.

We also enjoyed the 5 Palms restaurant with the sunset special which

is hard to beat. Another great holiday with sun every day we were there. As we have seen all the sights we managed without a car thanks to good service with Roberts shuttle service. We did rent with

our usual car rental Kihei Car Rentals to buy all our provisions for our

stay for 1 day. Thanks again Larry and until the next time Aloha! If there was one fault it would be provide back cushions on the wire chairs.

Enjoyable holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in several units at Kihei Surfside and this one was above average. The owners have recently remodeled and the kitchen, floors, and baths were quite nice. After arriving we had an issue with the internet and both Larry and Barry responded immediately. They were great to deal with and followed up to insure we were happy.

Keawakapu beach is perfect for walks and 5 Palms restaurant is great. Would recommend this property as a relaxing spot for a Hawaiian vacation.

Beautiful oceanfront property !

  • 4 of 5

The property and its surroundings are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The condo we stayed in was upgraded with quality materials and had a heavenly view of the ocean, etc..

We had a wonderful two weeks visit to Maui, with friends who also stay at this complex. We would come back again.

Stunning setting - and beautiful unit

  • 5 of 5

The location for the Kihei Surfside was just great! Upon opening the door, you get a stunning view of the ocean, palm trees, and mountains - really tough to beat. The beach is a two minute walk - and yielded incredible snorkeling with a number of sea turtle sightings.

The unit itself was recently refurbished and very nice and clean inside. It also had a number of nice little touches such as a lot of beach towels, a couple of body boards, snorkel gear, and some sand toys for the younger ones.

Dealing with rosiesrentals was very easy, as was the management at Kihei Surfside. Highly recommend, and will definitely look to stay here again.

Great Winter Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great vacation on Maui and at Kihei Surfside. We really enjoy being right on the water, watching the whales, and taking long walks on the beach. We have been to Surfside several times and always had a very enjoyable experience. This was our first stay in #404 found it well equipped and nicely done with the recent Surfside renovation. We look forward to coming back again. Thanks much.

A couple things that could be fixed are: 1) the GFIC outlet near the refrigerator will not reset and work, and 2) the bathroom fan in the master bedroom is very noisy. It would be great if it had it's own on/ off switch.
