  • Life is what you make of it

    "Overall, the condo was great and well equipped for our needs. View: The view was greater than 180 degrees, elevated about 30+ feet off the ground. You are only 30 feet or so from the ocean as well, so it's all right in front of you. The only issue I had with the view was that the fronds of a palm tree sits right in the middle of it all. I'm sure in 10 years the tree will be taller and thus not block the view, but it is currently a little annoying. Pool: Not heated, so it was much cooler than the ocean. Many permanent residents like to lay by the pool during the day, using up almost all of the chairs and making me feel guilty for bringing my 3 year old to splash around for an hour. Beach: Great beach. The fishpond protects the beach on premise very nicely. It acts as a barrier for the big waves and leaves nice gentle waves no matter which direction or how hard the wind is blowing. The entire fishpond is walkable, as the deepest I found it was up to my chest (I'm 5'7"). The sea turtles that live in the fishpond are fun to watch, but I would hope that people respect them and keep a certain distance. Bed: We found the bed comfortable, though I can see how some might find the mattress pad too soft. If you don't like it, you could always just take the pad off and put it back when you leave. Futon Pads/No Fold Out Couch: My assumption was that the couch was a fold out for sleeping, but it turns out there are futon pads in the closet for sleeping on. For an adult, they were not very comfortable. Thankfully it was perfect for my kids, they didn't mind. Just know that as of our time of stay, there was no fold out couch and the pads are somewhat thin. Lack of AC: Some have complained that the unit got too hot. There are many fans as well as ways to open windows. If you open the window in the bedroom, it gives some great cold air at night. Yes, outside that window is the walkway, but such is life. My advice, just open some windows, leave your winter pajamas at home, and enjoy the weather, it's why you're there. Condo Extras: The condo had beach toys for our kids, some nice beach chairs, some basic kitchen necessities, binoculars, and some basic bathroom necessities. It was nice to have those ready and waiting for us. Location: Central to pretty much anything you would want. Condo Overall: Yes, it needs some updates and the carpet has some stains. It's still a nice condo and I highly recommend it. Thanks Bob!"

  • Kihei Surfside

    "My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Kihei Surfside so much, we returned 7 years later for another vacation. I'm wondering why we waited so long! I'll start with the only downside: there's no A/C in this building. On days when the winds are blowing in off the water, this isn't that much of a problem. But when the air is still and hot, opening windows/doors at opposite ends of the unit doesn't do much good, and one begins to baste in his/her own juices. Other than that, there is no downside. In our experience, Kihei tends to cool down at night enough to get a good night's rest, and if you're vacationing on Maui, what're you doing in your room during the day anyway - go sightsee, go lay on the beach, go diving, etc... ! Not to say that the rooms are anything but comfy and NICE. The ocean view smacks you in the face as soon as you open the door - which as far as I'm concerned is the #1 draw of the whole building. Units farther to the left (as you face the front of the building) are of course more desirable due to their proximity to the water. IF you can, go for lower numbered units on each floor (101, 201, 301 instead of 115, 215, 315) since you'll be closer to the water and the ocean will fill more of your view. That having been said, give me the ground floor unit farthest from the water, and I'd not complain, and you're an ungrateful slob that can't be satisfied if you'd complain. Both the units we've stayed in have been tastefully appointed - very stylish and inviting. Now that I've said all this, please disregard it: if Kihei Surfside gets too popular, there won't be any availability when we next want to stay there."

  • Fantastic location! Beautiful apartment with everything you need!

    "Our stay in Kihei was fantastic! The apartment was in the perfect location with restaurants, beaches and water sports steps away from the door. The hosts were incredibly easy to reach, and obviously interested in making sure our stay was perfect. The kitchen was fully equipped, which made food preparation easy for day trips and home cooked meals. 10/10 would stay again!"
