About the property

Large 2 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths Newly Remodeled With Fantastic View

Modern, fully updated spotless condo with a great view of the beach. Everything is new, from the stainless appliance package to the commercial sized washer and dryer, Egyptian cotton beach towels and super high quality linens. Two large bedrooms and two full baths. Over 1000 square feet of open, airy space.

Please feel free to call me at 360-929-0413 (Seattle time Zone) to discuss any specific needs or fees.

-great ocean view: take in the outstanding view through the wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass wall in the living room/kitchen

-completely remodeled: everything is new, including appliances, commercial washer/dryer, furniture, bedding and all utensils, right down to the Henckel knives

-great, central location: walk to shopping, dozens of restaurants, beaches, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and more. There are days we never use our car!

-two large bedrooms, each with a cal-king bed

-two full bathrooms, bright with new tile, granite and cabinets

-fully air conditioned, one of the few units in the building outfitted with a state of the art ductless, silent air conditioning system.

-free Wi-Fi, long distance to us and Canada, cable

-free parking

-beach toys included, snorkels sets, chairs, cooler, umbrella, thick beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards

-high quality Costco inflatable queen bed available for the kids

Every time we enter our condo, we are struck by how beautiful the view is. One wall of the living room is entirely made of glass, and the light fills the whole space. The lanai is over 16 feet wide and provides a great space to hang out, watch the waves and surfers, and enjoy the tropical weather.

Update, on 9/24/13 we installed a $9k sliding glass door unit even though the old unit functioned fine. The update is just part of our commitment to make sure our guests have a great experience. I am so happy with this change. The difference the insulated, double pane glass made was huge. Very energy efficient and so quiet. There are only 12 units in all of the building with these doors. I wouldn't stay in a unit without them.

We have furnished our condo to be modern and comfortable. You will find full sized couch and chairs, two king sized beds, tons of storage, large closets. The kitchen is outfitted with a new whirlpool appliance suite including microwave, dishwasher, self cleaning glass topped range and refrigerator with ice maker. We even have special outlets that have USB chargers built into them. The kitchen is outfitted with top quality pans, knives and small appliances.

Free WiFi, phone calls to the us and Canada. A large flat screen TV in the living room and another flat screen in one bedroom. Both have blue ray players attached.

Island surf is in a great central location. Immediately to the north is a area the locals call 'the Triangle'. It has lots of shops and scores of restaurants and night spots. Across the street is Kalama park, offering playgrounds, roller hockey, volleyball, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and wide open spaces to play catch or just hang on the grass. You can watch your friends and family play in the surf right from the front room.

A short drive to the south puts you in the heart of Wailea with upscale dining, shopping and more wonderful beaches.

Island surf houses many great businesses. You can rent bicycles, get a manicure or spa treatment, book a scuba dive, rent surf boards, or eat a great plate lunch all without never leaving the building.

There is a pool and BBQ area on the second floor, both with ocean views.

Amenities include:

-air conditioning in ALL rooms.

-two flat screen tvs, with blue ray players

-free phone calls to the us and Canada

-free wireless internet

-beach toys including snorkel gear, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, sand toys

-huge washer and dryer, ironing board and iron but dryer has steam function so probably will not need to iron!

-new kitchen: dishwasher, microwave, glass topped self cleaning oven, coffee maker and grinder, blender, toaster, tea pot, rice cooker, high end knives, pots and pans.

-our on-island contact is within walking distance to the condo and will promptly attend to any issues you may encounter.

If a one bedroom could fit your needs, please look at our other unit, # 698750

About Matt Keller

We live in the Seattle area and have been visiting Hawaii frequently for the past 15 years. After visiting different islands, we settled on Maui as the best combination of recreation and amenities. We believe you simply cannot do better than Maui. There is a reason the movie stars vacation here!

After looking at scores of condos, we snapped up our unit in the Island Surf. It had the best combination of views, layout, and location. We have found that we can park our car for days at a time and walk to everything. Our unit was dated and tired, so we launched into a full scale remodel. We love the newness of the unit now and the modern feel.

Our plan is to retire and split our time between Maui and Seattle area. Until then, we wanted to share our great location and remodeled unit with others.

We hope you enjoy Maui as much as we do.

Aloha,

Matt and Colleen Keller

Matt Keller purchased this condo in 2012

Why Matt Keller chose South Maui

We have seen Island Surf on all of our trips to Maui. In fact, we have rented surf boards on the bottom floor in the building. When a unit came for sale, we jumped at the opportunity. It has such a great location, is within walking distance to so many amenities, and the unit has great views with a open and airy feel. It also was over 1000 square feet, huge by Hawaiian standards. After looking at Island Surf for so many years, we are still in awe that we were able to buy here.

What makes this condo unique

The best benefit of Island Surf is the view. Following close behind is the size and layout of the unit, 1000 square feet with one wall entirely of glass providing a great, open feeling. Combine that with the central location and ability to walk to so many attractions and you just can't beat it.

Fantastic property, best location!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our every expectation. How nice to have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to come back to after a day exploring Maui's beaches and sights! It was so clean and comfortable, they have really thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. So much better than a hotel, you get all of the comforts of home and the freedom to come and go as you please. And you can't beat Kihei for location. It's close to everything and has tons of great restaurants.

We were only on the island for 5 nights and didn't take advantage of the kitchen too much, but we definitely would have had our stay been longer. The beach chairs, coolers and boogie boards were great, thanks for the use of them!

I have shared this property information with several friends, and I hope to return some day soon. You have a lovely place!

Owner's Response: Aloha Karla: Thanks for staying with us and the great review. We love how clean our unit is also. I hope you enjoyed the brand new couch and chair. The old couch and chair was fine, in fact another rental owner took our old one to upgrade their furniture but we are committed to keeping everything fresh and new in our unit. We love when we exceed expectations. Looking forward to having you back! Mahalo, Matt and Colleen

The Best Location and All the Amenities, too!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (18 month old being one of them) loved this condo. You walk into an upscale very spacious condo with a magnificent view. It has all the necessities and luxuries we could ask for in our seven days there. Matt and Colleen were so accessible before, during and after the stay. If you need anything they respond quickly, plus they have many tips of where to go, what to see and do! The condo is within walking distance to several of the great beaches and to the many eating places we also enjoyed. If you're looking for a peaceful, convenient, elegant and reasonably priced place to stay, plan a stay at Matt and Colleen's condo and you will be hooked for a future stay as well.

Thanks so much, Matt and Colleen!

I'll definitely stay longer next time!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect!! This condo is wonderful and Matt and Colleen have thought of everything. We had everything we needed from bathroom supplies to kitchen supplies to beach toys. I only stayed 4 nights here and out of my entire trip this condo was the best. The location is perfect, the view is perfect (despite not directly facing the water you can still see the sun set!). The beds were comfortable and it's a relief to know you have a/c if you need it. There is literally nothing that could have been better. Thank you so much for sharing your home! I can't wait to go back and next time I'll spend my entire vacation here!

Hit The Jackpot!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 1st trip to Maui for my sister and me. We were more than pleased with our accommodation. It's always a bit scary booking a place without seeing it, but all positive feedback we had read was true!! The location was perfect for anything we wanted to do......a perfect starting point and a perfect place to end the day. I loved the ease of getting in and out of the condo. It has its own parking lot with easy access to the elevator. In the 2 weeks, I never had to wait to use an elevator, then a short walk to the condo. We always had the screen door and lanai doors open giving us the perfect air flow without needing AC. Bedrooms were both large, beds were great, 2 full bathrooms, full sized washer and dryer, (super quiet machines) and kitchen was equipped way beyond the norm!!!!! Pretty much anything you might need is there,,,,,including thermal mugs, cooler glasses, large assortment of seasonings. There were so many things we didn't use because we were out all the time. Most rental properties I have stayed in will have 1 roll of paper towels, if any, 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, no Kleenex. Well, Matt and Colleen stock their place with an abundance of everything, including Q tips, hand soap, shampoo, laundry detergent!!! They have really gone above and beyond to provide the comforts of home! The condo is spacious and tastefully decorated. There are a wide variety of convenient restaurants and shopping areas within walking distance. "Life's A Beach" was a great place for wings and their Happy Hour Mai Tais were the best!!! Grocery stores were only minutes away.

Everything I have to say is positive! 5 ⭐️, all way! Matt was quick to respond to any questions or concerns. During my stay one of the brackets on the shower head that hold it in place cracked. I sent Matt a picture, told him we were out for the day and told him to feel free to access the condo in my absence to repair. When we returned to the condo that evening, repairs were completed!!

Watching the ocean, surfers, and all park activities across the street from lanai was so enjoyable. The deli within the condo also provides a great meal! We didn't use the pool or BBQ area.....we simply ran out of time!!

The full condo complex is very well maintained....very clean.

IAO Theatre was a fun evening! Little theatre built in 1928, show was excellent and restaurant 'Aria' , nearby was outstanding!!!

I know where I will be staying when I return to Maui! UNIT 411!!!!!
