About the property

Peaceful and quiet studio across from beach w/full kitchen,bath & private lanai

We invite you to be our guests in our remodeled and upgraded condo studio. We installed beautiful tile flooring through-out the entire unit; granite counter tops in kitchen, bath, and vanity area as well as a tiled walk in shower in bathroom. All this yet still maintaining it's island quaintness.

We are located on the western shores of Maui in the beautiful laid back city of Kihei where you can enjoy the beautiful sea breezes flowing through the unit. It is available for one, two or three people. This quiet location is across the street from Kalepolepo Beach which is perfect for catching our beautiful island sunsets or reading a good book.

Our condo is enhanced by a private lanai overlooking a beautiful garden & tennis court at the Kihei Bay Surf condos in a very quiet area away from the street noise. Perfect for morning coffee or an evening toast.

Our unit features a very comfortable queen size bed and a sleeper sofa that opens to a queen mattress. Our bathroom has a tiled walk-in shower and our kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove & oven, a dishwasher and a microwave as well as toaster, coffee machine, pots/pans, dishes, and serving ware. This charming studio has a ceiling fan, A/C, cable television, FREE high speed wifi internet connection, and a Blue Ray DVD player for your convenience.

The complex is built around a central courtyard with most units facing into the landscaped area. The buildings are low rise (only two stories). In addition to a swimming pool, the grounds feature a hot-tub, tennis court, and a BBQ area with gas grills. A coin-operated laundry room is conveniently located on the grounds. There is one free parking space provided for all our guests.

Across the street is a small whale sanctuary park with viewing telescopes and educational displays. The park has shade trees, picnic tables, and a shallow lagoon for swimming. There are also archaeological displays of the ancient Hawaiian fish ponds and a village site.

Sugar Beach is located just a couple of minutes by foot down Kihei Road, from where you can walk or run 3.5 miles along a sandy beach, passing only a few buildings. The swimming beaches of Charley Young, Kamaole I, II and III, and Keavakapu are a very short drive by car or scooter into Kihei. A short drive further south are more secluded beaches as well as the famous, and our favorite, Makena Beach.

If you are coming to Maui, we can provide the perfect base for a relaxing vacation, or a more adventurous exploration of the island's natural beauty. We provide full beach gear for your convenience; large towels, snorkel equipment, Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs, Tommy Bahama

Beach Umbrella, and a cooler for snacks, lite lunch or evening sunset picnic on the beach. We are centrally located to everything this island has to offer at a very affordable rate. Let us be your hosts in paradise. Explore, relax, renew and realize the Aloha Spirit! Mahalo for considering us.

The perfect place to unwind after long days exploring an island paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this suite for 3 weeks in Jan-Feb 2018. The reservation process was simple, and Dom and Ted’s pre-arrival instructions made sure our check-in was a breeze. The unit was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy the most comfortable stay. The Tommy Bahama beach chairs helped make for some great, relaxing, inexpensive beach days just soaking up the beauty of the island. The kitchen had all the basics for us to prepare meals. The bed was comfortable. The linai provided a quiet spot to sit or to listen to the occasional tennis match. We were always able to secure a parking space just outside our door. We made many new acquaintances at the wonderful pool area. Both the pool, hot tub, and barbecue areas seemed well maintained. Nothing better than a soak in the hot tub before you call it a night. This suite was chosen for its affordable rate, excellent amenities, and proximity to different areas in the town of Kihei. Grocery stores and restaurants were just a short drive up the road, and if you walk the beautiful trek down the beach, you’ll find a wonderful bakery and a shaved ice hot spot - perfect for morning or afternoon cravings. If your wish is to explore an island paradise and resting after a long day in a clean, quiet, and safe complex, this is a suite for you. The owners were wonderful and everything was clearly laid out for us upon our arrival. Any questions we had during our stay were promptly answered and addressed. We recommend staying here! Mahalo!

Unbeatable price and location. Second stay, will return.

  • 5 of 5

You really can't beat the price for this cozy studio close to everything in Kihei. Close to restaurants and grocery stores. Perfect for a couple or family with one small child. This is our second stay at this unit and we will be back. Short drive to whale watching, Maui Pie shop (YUM), multiple beautiful beaches, Lahaina and Ka'anapali.

Wonderful! Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this adorable condo and would highly recommend it! Being our first time in Maui, Dom & Ted were wonderful hosts providing us not only with a charming condo to stay at, but giving us great ideas of places to see and things to do during our stay. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was an enjoyable one. The condo was spotless and very cozy. The location was ideal, so close to everything by either walking or just a short drive. We loved how quite the condo was as we enjoyed our morning coffee on the lanai, and our evenings in the swimming pool and hot tub.We spent a great deal of time across the street at Kalepolepo Beach. It was rarely overcrowded and there were times we literally had the beach all to ourselves. It's a great place to swim with the turtles.Heaven on earth with spectacular sunsets. The beach gear at the condo was great to have. The beach chairs, cooler and umbrella were perfect to take to the beach. If you're a beach lover, there are so many beautiful beaches to choose from. We loved Sugar Beach, along with the gorgeous views at Wailea. Maipoina Oe lau Beach park was also very nice and not crowded.There are so many things to do and see. We enjoyed a sunset dinner cruise, along with a helicopter ride during our stay. Simply an amazing view of the island and Haleakala Volcano from the helicopter.There are many luaus available. We went to the Grand Luau at Honuaula and had a wonderful time.Beautiful view, delicious food and entertaining show. We would definitely recommend it.The road to Hana was a wonderful experience. A must see along your stops is the Black Sand Beach. If you're looking for delicious seafood, Coconuts is a must for their fish tacos and seafood chowder. If we return to Maui, we would definitely stay in the same place. Thank you again Dom and Ted for everything!

We loved our 2 weeks at this Hawaiian decorated get away! Ted answered any calls and was so accommodating in setting up our arrival and departure times. We like Kihei as an area for being so central in Maui.

Loved our time here!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Kihei Bay Surf but our first time staying in this unit. We almost enjoyed this one more! The bed was very comfortable, the condo was very clean and we love the area. The beach chairs were wonderful and it is nice that everything is there. It makes traveling for a beach vacation much easier. We would highly recommend staying here!

About Ted Wells

Aloha and thank you for taking time to look at our listing. We live in Kihei, right around the block from the condo. If you need anything, we are a phone call, and a 3 minute drive, away! We fell in love with Hawaii many years ago and always hoped we could be fortunate enough to one day buy a property here. Well our dream came true!

Ted Wells purchased this condo in 2013

Why Ted Wells chose Kihei

We chose Kihei Bay Surf for many reasons. It's location is 'No Ka Oi' or the best. We are centrally located to Wailea, Lahaina and Kaanapali. Kahului International Airport is a short 11 miles away as is the start of the famed 'Road to Hana'. We also love that our condo is directly across a two-lane road to the beautiful West Maui shore. The pool/jacuzzi area is fantastic as well as a well-maintained tennis court. Two BBQs for use as well as a laundry facility. Being that Kihei Bay Surf is so fully contained, it was an easy choice for us to purchase here.

What makes this condo unique

Maui has always been our favorite island - don't tell the others. The experiences here are endless. From Haleakala Volcano to lush rain forests, from sun-filled pristine beaches to fine dining and shops, Maui has everything anyone could ask for.

Please enjoy your stay here with us. Feel the 'Aloha Spirit' and have a truly memorable time with us.

Mahalo nui loa,

Dom & Ted

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo has ample parking and is easy to access. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The living/sleeping area is ample size. The patio is a good size for some fresh air. The complex has a pool and tennis court. We were able to get to restaurants, beaches, shopping, etc very easily. The complex is quiet and clean. It was a nice place to stay.
