About Mel

Started coming to the Islands way back in 1972 almost every other year till 2010. Stayed both in Kaanappalii / Lahina area and the Kihei area. Worked for a year on Maui in 1989 and lived at KBS Unit 117 and came to the conclusion that if you wanted to enjoy all that Maui had to offer you and you didn't want to spend all day in the Rental Car, Kihei was the most central area on the Island and North Kihei in Particular

Mel purchased this studio in 2010

Why Mel chose Kihei

Kihei Bay Surf and Kihei itself as indicated is centrally located on the Island. With the shortest of times from the Condo to Maui's points of interest and enjoyment. Which makes it the most logical place to stay and is inexpensive BOOK EARLY AND STAY LONG TO GET THE MOST FOR YOUR MONEY

What makes this studio unique

Unit 215 is outfitted like most homes,pillow top queen bed along with queen sofa bed,outfitted Lanai, full kitchen with all the amenities,vanities for two, great shower. Overhead fans, A/C,flat screen T/V,DVR with expanded T/V coverage,free local and continental USA & Canada PH, WI/FI,Beach chairs /umbrella and if that’s not enough and you want to play a little Tennis Racquets & balls are there and the Tennis courts a few steps away along with a large pool and super warm Spa the 2 Barbies are there too all for your use.

THE VERY BEST!

  • 5 of 5
I have been telling everyone who asks about our Hawaii trip about this unit. The apartment is perfect and one of the cleanest you will find. Everything you need for the beach is in the closet and you will find a great little beach across the road.

The pool was also a great place to soak up both the sun and water. And if you are into cooking it is a snap with everything supplied.

It was a joy to stay at Maui Mel's and I absolutely recommend
it for a quiet, relaxing and fun week. Thanks Mel and Amy....

Just as we expected our time in Maui and the amenities offered at Kihei Bay Surf did not disappoint. The condo is well maintained with all the comforts of home and is in an excellent location. We appreciated the free long distance calling and the Tommy Bahama beach chairs. Thank you once again Amy and Mel.

Owner's Response: Clients that like yourselves, returning give us great satisfaction. In regards to the Beach Chairs a prior Client actual got them. As the ones we had weren't as comfortable as what they saw, so they Brought them and we reimbursed them. Clients sometimes are way ahead of the curve and we appreciate being informed. You just never can be on top of everything so we appreciate the help and glad you loved a new item. Hopefully in the future the Split AC system we are going to put in makes the Unit more comfortable. Along with saving electrical costs for the Complex. ...........Amy & Mel

I Will Return !!!

Maui Mel's studio was very nice and cozy. The appliances were all as described and I would have given a 5 star but the couch could use replacing---. I had the bed and my daughter slept on the convertible couch. The bed and pillows were comfy.The bath towels were nice and thick as were the beach towels (although we had our own).It was nice and quiet and plenty of stores and restaurants near by. It has a very nice shower and the extra sink area was very handy. I feel we got a lot for the money. Also--had a very nice pool and hot tub area.

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place, well maintained, and WELL STOCKED with EVERYTHING you would need!! I have been coming to Maui for years and have stayed in hotels, villas, & condos all over the island. This is the 3rd different unit I have stayed in @ KBS...and by far, the best!!! It is BRIGHT (a lot of units are not), modern, clean, and beyond well stocked! the 2nd bathroom sink is such a huge convenience that you don't even appreciate until you use it! I didn't watch TV much, but the added cable channels were a nice option. I loved the fact that there was a keyless entry and tile floors (as opposed to Pergo). I cannot say enough about Mel & Amy...the communication was always immediate and friendly. I requested a late checkout last minute (not thinking it would be accepted, but figured it was worth asking), and Mel & Amy kindly allowed me to stay a few hours longer. Thank you again for that!! I only have one suggestion...perhaps a full length mirror somewhere in the unit? Maybe on the wall behind the front door, or on the wall outside (or inside) the bathroom? I recommend this beautiful unit without hesitation and will DEFINITELY stay again!! Mahalo!!!

All of the review are right on point! Thank you Amy and Mel for your hospitality! I have stayed at Kihei Bay Surf in the past and your condo stands above the rest! The re-model has been done very well. You have everything to cook with and even have coffee filters! Plenty of Rubbermaid container for keeping things fresh. The Ice Chest was so very nice to have as well. I love the shower. Nice and high for taller people and the glass blocks are a very nice touch. The grounds at Kihei Bay Surf are kept very nice. The property manager is very kind and does a great job keeping everything just right.

Tennis Rackets? Really? Yes and the courts are right outside your window! The bed is comfy and the place is well decorated. It really is a nice place to stay! Thank you for all of you help in accommodating our request.

One tip for people who will be staying in Maui for the first time. Find Safeway for your groceries or go back 15 minutes to Kahului to Wall mart or Costco for your best deal. I did shop at the local markets but the cost of good is ridicules shopping local! I tried but 30+% more!

Restaurants to Try, Sarentos for a great breakfast as well as Kihei Cafe. Three's Bar and Grill for some amazing sushi and Local Caught fish dishes, Home Made Cafe for Malasadas and they make them fresh to order!

Thanks again Amy and Mell. We had a great time and a very nice place to stay!

Ps. To potential renters they dont do paypal or CC but you can trust them. They are very honorable!

Owner's Response: Cassinelli family your enjoyment of our Complex and our Unit keeps emphasizing to us we choose the right place to buy a Unit in and hope all others have an opportunity to enjoy Kihei Bay Surf if not in our Unit some of the other 33 Units that are on VRBO. As we always say KBS is one of the least expensive Complex's on the Island and the Most Central to All things MAUI. Thanks again for a great review and look forward to either yourselves or friends coming or returning to KBS and UNIT 215..........Amy & Mel "Maui No Ka oi"

CONDO HAS EVERYTHING , MEL AND AMY DIDNT FORGET NOTHING!

  • 5 of 5
I just want to say thank you Mel and Amy for letting us use your Condo! , way beyond what we expected, there are pictures of the condo and yes it is remodeled and very clean, but its the little things you don't see in the picture, extra towels, bogie boards, sand buckets, ice chest...and the list goes on! We are going back to Maui soon and I wont stay any other place other then @ Mel's and Amy's! Convenient location close to stores make sure you shop at Food Land the best prices....Really anywhere you stay you must have a car on Maui otherwise you are cheating yourself.

I also wanted to add my husband and I have used VRBO and Home Away before a lot of times , we don't stay in condo all day we get out and explore the island ...this being said we decide to stay here for 8 days and go over to Kona for a week , well we used VRBO for that condo also....Well lets just say I wish Mel's condo was in Kona, it was in a great area but the condo we rented lacked the comforts of home.

We have also rented condos in the Caribbean........and yes Mel's and Amy's condo topped those off also, If I could I would give Mel and Amy 10 Stars ********** Thank you Mel and Amy Again :)

Owner's Response: A Thank You for the Review probably doesn't come close. The accolades require us to review again everything we have done right and to check and make sure that stays the same and look for ways to make it better as it always can be.
Again thanks Debra and Russ look forward to accommodating yourselves in the future.....Amy & Mel

Across the street is the Kalepolepo Beach Park that looks out on what used to be the Hawaiian Royalties Private 2 acre Fishing Pond. It is suitable for wading,snorkeling or just sitting in the Evening watching the beautiful Sunsets. Adjacent to the Park is the Hawaiian Humpback Whale National Sanctuary and Education Center

To go north for a 3 min drive or 10 min walk gets you to Malpoino O'e Lou Beach Park, which is considered by many to be the second best Windsurfing area on the Island Of Maui. Going for 7 to 10 min drive south takes you to Kam'ole Beach l,ll,lll and a little further to Makena's Big and Little Beach. Between those two locations is one of the Best snorkeling areas for seeing Turtlles and assorted Tropical Fish it is located at the Ocean Front Beach Hotel and 5 Palms Restaurant (great Breakfasts starting at 8 am) Having breakfast there and then walking 50 ft to the Beach and more often than not going snorkeling with Turtle's is Priceless.

To list all of Kehei Bay Surf's and surrounding areas attributes and Unit 215's would take a James Michner novel but that is for sitting on the Beach and reading 'HAWAII' suffice it to say you'll like it. BOOK EARLY AND STAY LONG
