Condo is uncluttered and roomy, with 12 foot of glass across front wall. With a fan in the vaulted ceiling, the air conditioner hardly gets used, as with locking front door security screen, front door can be left open and the islands ocean breeze flows right thru the condo. There are tennis racquets and balls in the closet, along with chairs for the beach, cooler, beach towels, boogie board, and air mattress for pool. Across the street is Kalepolepo Park and the NOAA Humpback Whale sanctuary. The sunsets are magnificent from this stretch of beach, that runs continuously all the way around the bay to the Maui Ocean Center, approx. 8 miles, making a great place for a morning walk or run. Lahaina is 45 minutes away, where you can take a ferry to Lanai or Molakai, or whale watching cruises, snorkeling trips out to Molokini.This complex is perfectly located and quiet and this condo is the perfect home base for all your Maui activities. Why spend your vacation money on expensive lodging when you spend so little time there anyway? Relax here at the Bay Surf and fall in love with Maui and all it has to offer.
We are Patrick and Catherine Reichert. We were married 4 years ago on Makena beach here on Maui, and have come back every year since for our anniversary. We live in Montana, and a midwinter getaway is much to our liking. Montana is very beautiful in it's own way, but there is no beach there! We are both self employed, making it a bit easier to get away for time out! I am in construction and Catherine is a hair stylist. Both our families live in Montana, and it is home, but we feel right at home when we're in Maui as well. We both thank you for taking the time to look at our listing and condo, and we hope you will decide to come and share this special place with us.

Patrick Reichert purchased this condo in 2012
We stayed here at the Bay Surf in February of 2012 and had such a great time that we decided to purchase a condo here. We both love to walk on the beach, listening to the waves, looking for shells and watching for whales.There is 8 miles of continuous walking beach right across the street. We love the sunshine, and Kihei gets the most sunshine, and the ocean is a bit calmer here as well. Everything we need is close by, and our condo is comfortable and cozy, and the complex is well cared for and relaxing. You can find bigger and fancier places, but you won't find one more relaxing. Our unit is back from the street, making it quiet both day and night.
I never like staying in a motel and living out of a suitcase. When we stay at our condo, we feel like we are at home. Once the shopping is done and the fridge is stocked, it's time to take a swim, lay by the pool, or find a beach to enjoy. We can eat out on the lanai and enjoy the cool breezes and the starry night sky. I can't think of a better way to unwind and relax.
Right from the start Patrick was very helpful and kept in touch via email, phone and text.
We arrived a bit early but he was able to make accommodations for us to check in early which was really appreciated!
Condo is nice and well appointed with everything needed for a beach get away or a day at the pool.
Thanks for sharing your home with us during our time in Maui. We are already planning our next trip.
Great central location for exploring all parts of the island. Easy access to groceries and restaurants. Very nice beaches within a short distance. This unit is nice for the shaded deck with nice tradewinds, comfortable furniture, very comfortable bed. Very clean. Only drawback was the lack of adequate counter space in the kitchen. Patrick was exceptionally easy to work with.
Condo is clean, well kept and has a great central location on the island that made it easy to explore all of Maui. Barbeque at the pool made our evening meals a great outdoor experience, and the long term complex residents demonstrated the Aloha everyday. Will definitely stay here again. The owner is a great guy. Very responsive and customer friendly.
We stayed for one month. The condo is just as described clean and comfortable. Pool area was nice. Good location in complex close to pool area. Bed was comfortable. Patrick the owner was easy to work with. We will stay here again.

This was our first time using VRBO and what a great experience! The owner Pat was very responsive and easy to work with. The condo was just as represented on the site. It was very clean and stocked with everything needed to enjoy a day at the beach. The wonderful beach across the street has a rock wall "ancient Hawaiian fishpond" that creates a great little protected swimming area. Each morning the turtles were swimming around in there and feeding on the rocks. There were several outrigger canoes that left from that beach in the mornings and would offer to take people along. We enjoyed the pool / BBQ area in the evenings and saved money by having the ability to eat in. The kitchen was stocked with anything needed to either cook in or go down to the grills. The central location made it so easy to explore the island. It seemed like we were just a few minutes away from anything we wanted to do. I just don't think you can beat this combination of location, comfort, and owner for anywhere near this price! Such a great bargain.
Located on South Kihei Road, which runs along the beach from north Kihei clear down thru Wailea and Makena.There are many shops, restaurants, taverns, grocery stores and beaches all along this road, making it easy to find whatever you need. The shops at Wailea is a beautiful mall with great restaurants and the golf courses there have beautiful views of the ocean. The beaches are awesome and you can rent any equipment you need to enjoy the ocean all up and down this stretch.
