About the property

Condominium, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fifth floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the more private, quieter side of the building, and has a lovely direct ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and lanai. It is one of the larger, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath units (680 sq ft). There is also a view of the Kihei shoreline, with Kamaole I, II and III beaches in plain sight.

The unit has been tastefully remodeled to a very high standard. The kitchen is done in rich cherry wood cabinetry (new in late 2015) and gorgeous granite countertops.

The entire unit has laminate flooring. Lighting in some rooms is controlled by dimmer switches.

The very attractive peninsula style kitchen is fully equipped with clean white and stainless steel appliances, including a refrigerator, full size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, garbage disposer and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, coffee grinder, four slice toaster, blender, crock pot, rice maker and hand mixer. There is also a large selection of higher end pots and pans, baking pans, knife set, spice rack and ample dishes, glasses and cutlery.

The living room is highlighted by a mirrored wall which brings in the ocean in a beautiful way. It has a queen size sofa-bed and a flat screen 48” LED color TV and DVD player, and a multi speed ceiling fan. There is free wireless high speed internet and telephone with free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The oceanfront dining area is also mirrored and has a round rattan glass table with 4 matching tropical armchairs. The dining area looks straight out to the ocean, unobstructed, over the exquisitely maintained lawn.

The large, private lanai is surrounded by clear glass and has a glass bistro table with two swivel rocker chairs – a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic oceanfront dinner!

The bedroom has a high quality new (May 2017) California King sized bed, high quality bedding, multi speed ceiling fan, modern furniture, closet, digital security safe and telephone.

The master bathroom has a full size, walk in shower, a beautiful cherry vanity with granite countertop. The matching half bath has been finished to the same high standard. Both bathrooms have Kohler toilets.

The unit is fully equipped with utensils, fresh linens and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler. Umbrellas, boogie boards and snorkel gear are NOT supplied, but are often left behind in the units by other guests – no guarantees. Laundry facilities are available on site.

This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for a beautifully remodelled unit in a quiet, private location in the building with a lovely view of the Pacific Ocean, the Kamaole Beaches, the oceanfront manicured lawn and garden and the West Maui Mountains.

The Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The Kihei Surfside Resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator. The building underwent an extensive makeover during the summer of 2015, it was closed for six months. Each unit received new windows, doors and railings, and the building itself had a complete concrete restoration and paint with new hallway carpeting. There is free parking on site. The resort is a twenty-five minute drive from the Kahului Airport (OGG). Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There are also taxis available at the airport (about $50), a shuttle bus and public transportation.

Virtually all of the other properties and resorts in Kihei are either located right on busy S. Kihei Rd., or if they are set back from the road - are across from the street from the ocean. One unique feature of the Kihei Surfside is that it is located at the quiet end of S. Kihei Road, AND it is set back 300 feet from S. Kihei Road AND it is located right on the ocean! Because it is hard to see from the road, many first time Surfside guests say that even though they have visited Kihei many times, they had never seen the Kihei Surfside Resort!

Another unique feature of the property is that it has a 2 acre, immaculately kept oceanfront lawn area with dozens of loungers, with a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbeque facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and lanais. In fact, the Pacific Whale Foundation conducts their annual whale count from this property. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui (voted Maui’s most romantic), where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and among the most luxurious hotels of Wailea. has been in business since 2003. We run our business from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. We personally own several units in the Kihei Surfside building, and also own units in Scottsdale, AZ, and Lake Country, British Columbia.

In Hawaii, we are not a property manager, but rather represent our own units as well as act as the face and the name for friends and relatives within the Kihei Surfside Resort community who self-manage their properties and advertise them on the internet. Together, we have the largest selection of properties to rent at the Kihei Surfside, including many in the most prime locations. We are registered in Hawaii as a Transient Accommodations Operator. We have an on island representative who handles any issues that arise with the units or guest concerns.

Perfect & Beautiful Waterfront Condo in Kihei!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Maui for our honeymoon and were fortunate enough to rent this beautiful condo in Kihei! The condo was perfect - beautifully updated with 1.5 bathrooms and a full bedroom with a king bed - we definitely had enough space to spread out and make ourselves at home. The kitchen/dining/family room were all ocean sides with AMAZING views of the beautiful lawn and gorgeous ocean. The lanai was a fantastic spot for breakfast, evening cocktails, or just to sit and watch the beautiful scenery.

Check-in and out was a breeze. The condo had all the wonderful amenities (awesome Tommy Bahama beach chairs, coolers, beach towels) and the development was perfect with the front lawn, pool, and grills. While the property does not have a beach, it is connected a beach on either side. We actually preferred this to having a beach in the front of our building. While we were in Maui, it was quite windy and some days we decided to sunbathe on the lawn rather than get pelted by sand! It was the perfect balance!

The condo is located close to everything. In the development next store there are restaurants and a convenience store. You're within walking distance to all the action in Kihei, yet far enough away for some peace and quiet (except for the chickens and rooster, haha!)!

Writing this review and made me long for our honeymoon in Kihei - I can't wait to go back! If you're considering booking this condo, do it now!

A great experience - we'll be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone at Rosie's Rentals and onsite at the Kihei Surfside were very accommodating of our requests, very timely and professional in responding.

We were tiring of the traditional hotel experience in Hawaii, and decided to give Kihei Surfside a try this year.

The unit and complex were amazing, and perfect for us. Great people, facilities, location, views, vibe. We even got into the evening conch shell blow at sunset! We loved the breeze through the unit, the laminate floors, the views, the birds (once we got used to their morning routine), the walks, the restaurants close by. The pool was immaculate, the staff in the office friendly and helpful. Lots of beach toys, kitchen stuff, etc. in the unit.

We will be back - a wonderful experience that you all made even better. Thank you, everyone!

Wonderful ocean view unit

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is nicely updated and in a perfect location. Quiet and peaceful, we saw whales spouting from the lanai and enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the oceanfront lawn. Every morning was started with a walk on the beach in front of the complex, and the keyless entry and proximity to the sand meant we could just get up go without needing to bring anything with us. This is our favorite place to stay on Maui and we will definitely be back!

Small improvements could go a long way

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was lovely. The unit view and grounds were very nice. The location of the condo itself was ideal and walkable. The beach gear closet had great chairs and umbrellas.

A few suggestions:

We count on cooking a fair amount of time with the cost of food in Hawaii and the cookware (pans) could use replacing. The coffee maker is also at the end of its life. There is a floor fan in the bedroom that is dying and makes a screeching noise and is needed to move the air since no AC. The lighting was a little harsh bad bulbs. Lastly there could be some storage improvements. The closet space was limited with extra linens and some old tile and it was hard to find a spot for our suitcases. If the bed frame sat higher that could be some great storage. Hope this is helpful. The unit is lovely and we had a great time. Random item we loved was loved was the light up bocce games at the office.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo and well stocked! Beautiful hard wood flooring and at the quieter end of the building (except for the birds, but they're part of the charm).

The only thing we'd change is the Lanai furniture. It wasn't very comfortable for relaxing and enjoying the view. Other than that, we would recommend staying in 513.
