Roomy but very old
Very old unit needs much update; A/C not cold and has time limit shutoff every 4 hrs. Found some roaches
First of all, we used the VRBO "sort" feature to find only condos that had AC. Upon arrival, there was only one(window unit in the living room. This is not what we consider air conditioned for 2BR/2BA approx. 1100 sq feet. And right after we rented the unit, it was removed from VRBO. I had to call the agent to review things available in the condo before we arrived because there were no amenities to read or pictures to see. When we complained about the AC, the agent did bring a portable unit for the spare BR. It took days to get that and once installed it left a huge (shoebox size) hole into the 2BR. We called to tell here this was a security risk in addition to bugs and animals as big as cats coming right in. That took days as well. My husband had to cut cardboard to fit the hole until then. The unit originally listed a safe, but there was a sign on that saying "sorry, out of order". The sliding door between LR and master stayed off the track perpetually no matter how many times we put it back in. The drapes were ill fitting. The closet housed the W/D but it stuck out in hall so it couldn't close. The place had bugs. We emptied trash daily, bought roach spray, and were careful to clean up thoroughly and we still had bugs. The agent was hard to get hold of even though her office was downstairs. We sometimes went there in hopes of catching her, but waited days for a response. The location was great, but this unit on the side get heavy traffic noise. Overall very disappointing for the price.
Great location! Close to everything!
The location of this condo is perfect if you want to be able to walk to everything. You are right at the corner of the triangle and walkable to Charlie Young beach, so the location is great.
The condo itself is fine but a little old/outdated and a number of things didn't work. The sliding doors to the outside were all off their rails and close to impossible to use, making the patio fairly inaccessible. The sliding doors to the master bedroom (there are no real doors, just shutters) were also misaligned and didn't close all the way so there is no real privacy for the master bedroom. And the kitchen sink and the washer/dryer were broken. So there were little inconveniences but they didn't affect the trip. and the property manager was very responsive to texts and communication so that was really nice.
Overall would definitely recommend if location is your top priority.
Good location, very clean and nice
The condo was very spacious for 4 of us. It only had a window air conditioner so there were times it was a bit muggy even in February. The beach and convenience to stores and etc was very nice.
Kihei Surf Central with three young adults over Christmas holidays - Wonderful time
Spacious, beautifully situated two bedroom plus pull out couch was perfect for our family with three young adults. We were across the street from the ocean and a very popular surf shop. Location was in the middle of Kihei surf central - walking distance to lots of really great restaurants, gourmet food trucks, crafts stalls and even Foodland (saved us $$$ on food). A short drive to all of the beautiful beaches down this side of the island, great for snorkeling, surfing or just laying around. The unit was a bit dated but management was receptive to our requests. Being on Kihei surf central, it can be a bit loud with trucks and cars and general activities. Having the vibe though, was certainly a positive attribute for our three young adults and our wonderful 2017/2018 Christmas holiday.
Clean unit and good value, but not many amenities at Island Surf
But who needs amenities on Maui? Plenty to do in Kehei area and South Maui. Island Surf does have a pool and grills for cooking. Good enough for my family. The unit was clean had sufficient equipment and has recent upgrades to kitchen and baths for a comfortable stay. Couldn't beat the price in the area. Location is close to main roads so there is road noise. Things ramp up at about 7 AM with the Maui Waveriders customers across the street and quite down by 11 PM. Location was great for local shopping and dining, and activities.
