About the property

Affordable studio condo, fully equipped, across street from beach

Kihei Bay Surf is a cozy 2 story complex of 80 studio condos across the street from the beach. The complex is well kept and clean, with a great pool and jacuzzi area, complete with lounge chairs, 2 barbecues and tables, tennis court, laundry room, and plenty of parking. Our condo is a second floor unit, with private lanai overlooking the tennis court and pool area. Recently remodeled, it has everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. Kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to prepare your meals and dine in, coffee maker,toaster, crock pot, ice maker and blender for those drinks on the lanai! It has a very comfortable queen size bed, 32 inch flat screen TV, DVD player, cable, wireless internet, and phone with free nationwide and Canada calls. Pay per view can be arranged. There is a radio CD cassette player or you can play music Cd's in the DVD player, so bring your favorites. Dresser with 3 big drawers and a closet for hanging clothes, so unpack, put suitcases in closet, and stay awhile! There is an ironing board and iron, as well as a clothes basket for your convenience. Condo is uncluttered and roomy, with 12 foot of glass across front wall. With a fan in the vaulted ceiling, the air conditioner hardly gets used, as with locking front door security screen, front door can be left open and the islands ocean breeze flows right thru the condo. There are tennis racquets and balls in the closet, along with chairs for the beach, cooler, beach towels, boogie board, and air mattress for pool. Across the street is Kalepolepo Park and the NOAA Humpback Whale sanctuary. The sunsets are magnificent from this stretch of beach, that runs continuously all the way around the bay to the Maui Ocean Center, approx. 8 miles, making a great place for a morning walk or run. Lahaina is 45 minutes away, where you can take a ferry to Lanai or Molakai, or whale watching cruises, snorkeling trips out to Molokini.This complex is perfectly located and quiet and this condo is the perfect home base for all your Maui activities. Why spend your vacation money on expensive lodging when you spend so little time there anyway? Relax here at the Bay Surf and fall in love with Maui and all it has to offer.

About Patrick Reichert

We are Patrick and Catherine Reichert. We were married 4 years ago on Makena beach here on Maui, and have come back every year since for our anniversary. We live in Montana, and a midwinter getaway is much to our liking. Montana is very beautiful in it's own way, but there is no beach there! We are both self employed, making it a bit easier to get away for time out! I am in construction and Catherine is a hair stylist. Both our families live in Montana, and it is home, but we feel right at home when we're in Maui as well. We both thank you for taking the time to look at our listing and condo, and we hope you will decide to come and share this special place with us.

Why Patrick Reichert chose Kihei

We stayed here at the Bay Surf in February of 2012 and had such a great time that we decided to purchase a condo here. We both love to walk on the beach, listening to the waves, looking for shells and watching for whales.There is 8 miles of continuous walking beach right across the street. We love the sunshine, and Kihei gets the most sunshine, and the ocean is a bit calmer here as well. Everything we need is close by, and our condo is comfortable and cozy, and the complex is well cared for and relaxing. You can find bigger and fancier places, but you won't find one more relaxing. Our unit is back from the street, making it quiet both day and night.

What makes this condo unique

I never like staying in a motel and living out of a suitcase. When we stay at our condo, we feel like we are at home. Once the shopping is done and the fridge is stocked, it's time to take a swim, lay by the pool, or find a beach to enjoy. We can eat out on the lanai and enjoy the cool breezes and the starry night sky. I can't think of a better way to unwind and relax.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Kihei Bay Surf, and Unit #242 was by far the best of the three units we have stayed in! First of all, the owner, Patrick, was extremely welcoming to us, assuring us that we could contact him at any time. His instructions for check in/check out were clear and simple. The unit itself is on the upper level of the complex, and with the raised ceiling with fan circulating, we hardly used the AC unit at all. (lower units do not have the raised ceiling.)The condo is simply and beautifully decorated, which made it feel very comfortable and relaxing immediately. It was immaculately clean. There is everything a person could want, from the Tommy Bahama beach chairs and beach towels to the high speed blender (for smoothies and cocktails), coffee maker, utensils and great kitchen knife set. We prepared most of our own meals in the condo, so these things were definitely a plus for us. I always ask about hair dryers, and there was a brand new one in the bathroom, as well as several cleaning supplies, ironing board/iron, and a very nice TV. The bed was very comfortable, as was the other furniture in the unit. Also, the unit is in the back corner of the complex, so not very close to S. Kihei Rd, and the road noise was not noticed by us at all. Each time I used the laundry facilities, I always found an open washer/dryer available, and it is a close walk to get to it from the unit. We love KBS because of the location away from the busier beaches to the south, and find the location to be perfect. It is a short drive to Costco and other beaches/attractions both north, south and upcountry. Being directly across from the Humpback Whale Center with small adjoining park is also a plus, and the beach in both directions is great for walking. We saw sea turtles every day, and it is in walking distance of the Farmer's Market. Can't say enough about this lovely unit and owner, Patrick, and will definitely stay here when we are in Maui!

Clean and Quaint studio. I loved that there was everything that you needed in the kitchen and there were tons of fresh towels. The location is great and it was very close to the beach. The host Was amazing and quick to respond. 10/10 would stay here again.

Comfortable for 2 & conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Patrick's unit and the description posted was accurate. The unit was conveniently located, allowing easy access to key points of interest (e.g. grocery stores, beaches, highways to Haleakala and Hana, etc.). The unit was comfortably furnished for 2 people, although it was on the smaller side. We also appreciated the extras provided, such as the cooler, boogie board, beach towels and umbrella (albeit one of the spokes in the umbrella was broken). The only "downside" (not a deal breaker) was the AC behaving sporadically and turning on and off before meeting the set temperature (but it did its job). Patrick was great and responsive, and he promptly addressed any questions as they came up. Would stay here again if given the opportunity and would recommend to others!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just right for us. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and an abundant of bath towels was supplied. As well a varied assortment of beach items (chairs, cooler, mats, beach towels, umbrella, fishing rod, pool noodle, boogie board etc.) was available. The A/C in the suite was much appreciated during our stay.

The complex has a jacuzzi, pool and a tennis court and the beach is just across the street. Location-wise it was central which made it very easy to reach all parts of the island (we were able to do the road to Hana to the Seven Sacred pools and back in twelve hours with many stops).

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed sharing our condo with Barry and his wife. We had a little mix up with the entry key but Barry was very understanding and we got it taken care of painlessly. Thanks Barry and we hope to see you again soon! Patrick

Beautiful apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay during our honeymoon in this apartment. It is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Very conveniently located in North Kihei and well equipped with everything you need. Especially the kitchen was clean, modern and well equipped. Considering the little money you spend in comparison to other places in Maui, this place is definitely the one with the best value for the money. Patrick, the owner, was helpful and provided us with all the information we needed well in advance. Can only recommend this one!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days in this unit and we loved everything about it. I was there with my 2 children; 13 year old and almost one year old and it was perfect for the three of us. Good location as well. We will definitely contact Patrick if we decide to go back to Maui.

Located on South Kihei Road, which runs along the beach from north Kihei clear down thru Wailea and Makena.There are many shops, restaurants, taverns, grocery stores and beaches all along this road, making it easy to find whatever you need. The shops at Wailea is a beautiful mall with great restaurants and the golf courses there have beautiful views of the ocean. The beaches are awesome and you can rent any equipment you need to enjoy the ocean all up and down this stretch.
