About the property

Huge one bedroom corner penthouse with commanding views

Brand new remodeled one bedroom and new on the market!

This double lanai, dual view top floor penthouse is absolutely over the top!

Unit 606 is a very unique property. It was originally built as the developer of the building's private suite. Based on the size, spaciousness and views of the unit, he used it as a location to host cocktail parties and neighborhood gatherings. Over it's life, the unit has had very few owners and mostly was used as a gathering space.

We recently purchased it and proceeded with a large scale remodel. The results are spectacular. New double pane glass to provide silence when you want, and huge doors to bring the outside in when you prefer.

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

Modern, fully updated spotless condo with TWO great views of the ocean. Because of the unique corner aspect of the unit, you also get views of Haleakala and the West Maui Mountains. There are only a handful of units in all of Kihei with these views. Everything is new, from the stainless appliance package to the front load washer and dryer, Egyptian cotton beach towels and super high quality linens. This unit is a huge one bedroom with nearly 1000 square feet of open, airy space.

-Two commanding ocean views from two different lanias: take in the outstanding view through the wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass wall in the living room/kitchen and a different view from the master bedroom

-completely remodeled: everything is new, including appliances, front load 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!

-large bedroom with a cal-king bed

- full bathroom bright with new tile, granite and cabinets

- air conditioned in bedroom and living room

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

-free parking

-beach toys included, snorkels sets, chairs, cooler, umbrella, thick beach towels, 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 views are. One wall of the living room is entirely made of glass, and the light fills the whole space. In addition, one wall of the master bedroom is glass also, with commanding views of the south Maui coastline. The glass has been replaced with thick double pane glass to provide quiet and moderate the Maui sun. Most units haven't invested in the expense of new glass. At $22,000, I understand why, but the increase in comfort is extreme. I wouldn't rent a unit that did not have updated glass. The lanais are over 16 feet wide and provide a great space to hang out, watch the waves and surfers, and enjoy the tropical weather.

We have furnished our condo to be modern and comfortable. You will find full sized couch and chairs, a king sized bed, 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 the bedroom. The living room has a blu ray player. There is a radio with a provided cord to plug in your ipad, ipod, iphone or MP3 player

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.

-our on-island contact is within walking distance to the condo and will promptly attend to any issues you may encounter. Their number is 808-268-6485.

If you need other dates, you can check out our other rental in the same building. It is a two bedroom, two bath #454560.

Since we have two units in the building, and work with the owner of the unit adjacent to ours on the 6th floor, we can offer wedding party accommodations with berths for up to 12 people.

Please check out the video of the unit we posted. The sound is on in the video, if you listen closely you can hear my wife's footsteps. The unit is just that quiet....

We have a two bedroom/two bathroom unit in the same building. Some guests combine the units as they have family and friends come during their stay. The two bedroom unit is vrbo.com # 454560.

This condo is licensed for vacation rentals, Hawaiian tax id w06580022-01. Beware of condo owners not providing their tax number, often they are scams or not licensed. If you are looking at a rental that does not provide their number, they are probably operating illegally. Please be careful, the state is enforcing these and you may find yourself without a place to stay when you arrive. Try googling 'nonpermitted vacation rentals target of enforcement' to see a recent article on the issue. Kauai recently closed 320 non-permitted vacation rentals with two weeks notice and all the guests were left without accommodations.

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 2015

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 this unit came for sale, we jumped at the opportunity. After all, this is the top floor Penthouse unit. It is truly the best one in the building. 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 almost 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 two walls 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.

A true "5 Star" paradise getaway

  • 5 of 5

The consistent 5 star rating is understandable the moment you enter Matt and Colleen's unit. The views of swaying palms and blue waters is breathtaking. The decor is totally in tune with being at an island paradise. All reviews that indicated everything is provided were so true - cannot imagine anything needed that was not there. It is evident that the owners went the extra mile to make this the perfect vacation getaway.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for us. We love the Kihei area, great amount of restaurants, close to walk to the beach, just down the road from the Kihei Cafe (one of our favs for breakfasts).

The condo was great, had beach items for us to use and a fantastic view over the ocean. Parking was ample and easy to get to. This is really just a nice area to relax by sitting on the balcony or talk a walk outside. With a 5-10 min walk you are near quite a few restaurants/bars/happy hours.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui. Thanks Matt and Colleen!

Owner's Response: Jon, Thanks for the staying with us and taking the time to write such a nice review. We love the walkability of the unit also. Just a few minutes walk and you are on a beach, shopping or at several nice restaurants and bars. And the views. Two of them. Looking forward to having you back! Matt and Colleen

Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautiful. It had everything we could possible need or imagine needing. It was a little warm at night but with Matt's suggestions we were able to cool it down with the air and fan working together. The views were magnificient. The only too fancy thing for me was the light/fan controls for the living room. But that was an operator error. One time I did contact Matt to inquire about the location of the kitchen light and he did not respond. Also, no fault of Matt's thanks to the airline industry we arrived a day late and lost a night at the condo. I did not expect the owners to compensate for the night we missed but it would have been nice!!! I would imagine that if we had stayed at a resort there might have been some room for negotiations. Overall, I would recommend this beautiful condo!

Owner's Response: Tina: Thanks for the great review and for using our unit to spend your holiday and celebrate your birthday. What fun. I'm glad the unit worked well for you and had everything you needed. We really try to think of everything and it sounds like the way we stock our unit helped make your vacation a hit. So sorry about the airlines delaying your arrival, that's a great reason why we suggest trip insurance. Looking forward to having you back! Matt and Colleen

It was like home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't thank Matt and Colleen enough. The unit felt like home. The bed was super comfortable, it really had everything we needed. It was close to the grocery store, Lava Java, where we would get our coffee fix to balance out our time adjustments. It was also convenient and right across the street from Maui Wave Riders where we had surf rentals all week, and could switch out boards depending on the conditions and it comes with booties and wax and car straps, so you aren't limited to that area. It had beautiful views, two of them! It was perfect for two of us! Thank you for everything, if we come back to Maui, we would stay there 100 percent!

Owner's Response: Aloha Janella: Thanks for the great review and for choosing us for your vacation. For water sports, the location is hard to beat. I'm not surprised Tom at Maui Wave Riders treated you well. He runs a great shop with lots of happy customers. I took the website aerial photos of his shop and the surfers using my drone. Looking forward to having you stay with us again. Mahalo, Matt and Colleen

6 Nights in Keihi

  • 5 of 5

Lets see, where should I start? Being on the top floor anywhere is nice but when it's the top floor and views in two directions, that's really nice. We used both lanais extensively enjoying the views over sunrise breakfasts and sunset dinners. While in the "Penthouse" we always had the gorgeous floor to ceiling sliders fully open so that we could enjoy the gently blowing trade winds. It was delightful sleeping and waking to the sounds of the waves crashing on the nearby beaches. We saw some thrilling volleyball games across the street in the park some with really good talented players and others that were pretty hilarious with novices. Watching the street below was always entertaining.

High points of the unit:

Great location.

Super clean unit.

Bed, sheets and pillows all top notch - very comfortable sleeping.

Nice bathroom.

The entire space was tastefully remodeled and very pleasant being in it.

Plenty of space, never felt cramped.

Well appointed kitchen, and we used it a lot.

Matt, the owner, was always super responsive and easy to work with. We don't like the hotels and use HomeAway for a lot of our travel, it's just a much nicer way to go that allows us to feel a little more at home.

Highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Michael: Thanks for staying with us and the great review. We love the views also, and when there are two different lanai's with corresponding views, it's double good. Also, as you mentioned, the unit is particularly large for a one bedroom....part of the floorplan the developer made for himself. Looking forward to having you back! Matt and Colleen

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was immaculate and was way beyond our expectations. It's in a great location where shops, restaurants and beaches are within walking distance. My husband and I were so sad to leave Maui. But we can't wait to go back and stay at Matt and Colleen's condo when we do!
