Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Clean affordable for 1-2 guests who want to use their money enjoying Maui.

🌺 Aloha! We offer clean, comfortable, yet affordable, accommodations for up to two guests who prefer to spend more of their time (and money) enjoying the sights of Maui than on lavish resorts.

Great location. One bedroom studio in the heart of Kihei. We offer a clean two room studio. There is a coffee maker, mini refrigerator, toaster, and microwave. WiFi included. TV has a built in DVD so you can rent and play DVDs but you do not get any channels.

Very well equipped, including two boogie boards, two Tommy Bahama beach chairs, 4 beach towels, and cooler. One of the greatest things is being able to walk right across the street to the The Cove Beach and boogie board, sign up and learn to surf at Maui Wave Riders, or go diving. Maui Dreams Dive Co and Maui Surfing Lessons are located in the Island Surf Building. You can even see whales during season!!!

Grab a bit to eat at your choice of several food trucks, sidewalk cafes or the many restaurants located in "The Triangle". All within walking distance, and enjoy local food at the Surfside Deli or Joy's health food right about in the building.

Location is great, right next to The Cove beach, Kalama Park with waterfront walkways. It is walking distance to many shops, shopping and restaurants at "The Triangle". Many parking spaces in complex makes it very accessible to condo. Pool and bbq's are located on the second floor. Two Tommy Bahama beach chairs and four beach towels, two boogie boards, fluffy white towels, hand towels and wash cloths, and hair dryer are provided for guests as well as a copy of Maui Revealed.

A magnificent ocean front sunset awaits you just across the street every evening, with well lighted ocean front pathways at Kalama Park and the Cove. Watch the surfers, stand up paddle boarders, kayaking on acres of well maintaned open spaces. Play tennis, volleyball, skateboarding, catch, (3 baseball fields) or just hang out on the lawn. There is even a skating rink where you can rent skates, pavilions and BBQ's.

A short drive to the south puts you in the heart of Wailea with upscale dining, shopping and more wonderful, world class beaches. You can also catch the Maui Bus.

Island Surf houses many great businesses. You can rent bicycles, get a manicure, spa treatment, or tattoo, book a scuba dive, rent surf boards, or eat a great plate lunch all without never leaving the building. It is within walking distance to Maui's awesome beaches, shops, restaurants, and bus stop.

The Island Surf is well maintained. There is a beautiful, solar heated pool and BBQ area on the second floor. Every year the whales migrate from Alaska to the Hawaiian Islands to give birth to their young. The Lobby has two elevators. The parking is free. The building is handicapped and wheelchair accessible (may have limitations). No Smoking is allowing in unit. No surfboards allowed in unit.

About Ligia Davila

I came to Maui in 1970 and knew I did not have to look any further. I fell in love with Maui and moved here. We brought our unit at the Island Surf because of the awesome location and convenience. You are right in the heart of Kihei and if you want to go diving or take surf lessons the location does not get any better.

Ligia Davila purchased this condo in 1996

Why Ligia Davila chose Kihei

You are located in the center of tourist attractions: you can walk to restaurants, grab a shaved ice, or stop and have a bite to eat, and people watch, at one of the sidewalk cafes. The Solar Heated Pool is located on the second floor with a newly remodeled BBQ area. Kalama Park is an Ocean Front Park across the street that has a walkway along the ocean, covered Picnic Areas, a skating rink, children's park, volley ball, & horse shoe.

What makes this condo unique

You are located on the main street in the center of Kihei's tourist attractions. On the 1st floor of the Island Surf building you can sign up for surfing lessons, or scuba diving at Maui Dream Dive Shop. Eat local grinds at Johnson's Deli, enjoy the Joy's: who caters to a healthy life style. Get a massage, hair cut or nail salon. There is a tattoo shop, The Man Cave, real estate office, and other shops for your convenience.

The Island Surf is well maintained. The Lobby has just been remodeled and there are two elevators. The building is handicapped and wheelchair accessible (may have limitations). No Smoking or Surfboards are allowed in unit. WiFi included. Free Parking for one car.

Quiet, comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly as described and met our needs comfortably. Our host Ligia, was very accommodating, easy to communicate with and provided us with good information as first time Maui visitors. Parking was convenient and the location is in the heart of Kihei, yet surprisingly quiet. Not fancy but If you are looking for a comfortable, clean and convenient place to hang your hat while you explore Maui I would recommend this unit.

Prime location, affordable and clean

  • 4 of 5

This place was in the center of Kihei and could walk to several places! It was very clean and worked well for us. I took off 1 star because the freezer in the mini fridge wouldn't freeze water bottles and the a.c. didn't blow very cold, which wouldn't have been a problem had the windows opened. Ligia was very friendly and professional. We would stay here again and definitely recommend it to others if you aren't looking for anything extremely fancy. It was surprisingly quiet for the location! The beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and cooler that was provided were very handy!

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for travelers who prioritize value and location. It may be similar to a hotel room but, it is fully stocked with everything you need to feel right at home. It is conveniently located next to a beginner’s surf spot, board rentals, cafes, shops, food trucks, bars, live music, etc. yet, it is totally peaceful and quiet. Parking is a breeze here too. The owner is very helpful and is quick to respond to messages. Highly recommended!

It was exactly what we wanted, as we were only in the room to sleep and bathe

  • 4 of 5

The room was a little small and lacked a sink and counter to complete a breakfast eating area but worked for us all the same. The gift in the fridge was an awesome treat

location, location

  • 4 of 5

Ligia's rental is just as advertised. Lots packed into the small room and well located in Kihei. One disappointment was that the windows did not open, so there was no fresh air, to cool and freshen the room unless you had the door open to the public balconey (-- rather than use the air conditioner which was our choice). Good value.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The room is small, but it works. Everything you need is there except tv. I didn’t come to Maui to stay in a hotel anyway. Ligia was great to work with. Thanks for everything. Mahalo
