The resort was beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The room was beautiful, our kitchen was perfectly stocked with coffee,tea and oils and spices.

Everything we needed for enjoying our stay was there!

We overlooked the beach and the water and spent a lot of time on the lanai.

Snorkeling right in front was really wonderful! We didn’t have to go anywhere and could have just stayed at the resort!

The staff at the pools were fun and friendly.

The only complaint we had was the barbecue on our deck smoked so badly and the fan above just blew the smoke around not up and out?

All in all the room and the view were really lovely!

Owner's Response: A big Mahalo nui loa for taking the time to write a great review of the fabulous Surfrider Villa 1503 at Montage Kapalua Bay. It was our pleasure to have you and your family and we are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. We value and appreciate your input as we strive to keep our standards at the utmost and above our competitors. We apologize for the inconvenience in regards to the BBQ. It was built this way by the original project developer many years ago and we too wish they had designed a proper ventilation system. Currently we are working on a suitable and sustainable solution for the clearance of the some when using the BBQ and would like to assure you that it will be in place in the very near future. We look forward to welcoming you back to one of our exclusive Private Paradise Villas managed properties on your next Maui vacation. Until then , a hui ho, and hurry back to Maui no ka oi!

10 Days in Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time during our 10 days on Maui. We had our two teenage daughters and their friend, along with my sister and brother in-law. Everything went off without a hitch. The staff on property was professional in every way. Maid service and room service were great. We found the kitchen to be well stocked with all the comforts of home and we made full use of the gas grill on the patio. The villa is beautiful with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Golf was great! The many pools and outdoor amenities were very nice, not to mention the beautiful beach which had great service as well. I could go on and on....
