FANTASTIC OCEAN VIEW, MODERN 2BR/2BA SOUTH KIHEI, BEACH, POOL, SURFING

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Large 2 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths Newly Remodeled With Fantastic View

Modern, fully updated spotless condo with a great view of the beach. Everything is new, from the stainless appliance package to the commercial sized washer and dryer, Egyptian cotton beach towels and super high quality linens. Two large bedrooms and two full baths. Over 1000 square feet of open, airy space.

-great ocean view: take in the outstanding view through the wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass wall in the living room/kitchen

-completely remodeled: everything is new, including appliances, commercial washer/dryer, furniture, bedding and all utensils, right down to the Henckel knives

-great, central location: walk to shopping, dozens of restaurants, beaches, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and more. There are days we never use our car!

-two large bedrooms, each with a cal-king bed

-two full bathrooms, bright with new tile, granite and cabinets

-fully air conditioned, one of the few units in the building outfitted with a state of the art ductless, silent air conditioning system.

-free Wi-Fi, long distance to us and Canada, cable

-free parking

-beach toys included, snorkels sets, chairs, cooler, umbrella, thick beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards

-high quality Costco inflatable queen bed available for the kids

Everytime we enter our condo, we are struck by how beautiful the view is. One wall of the living room is entirely made of glass, and the light fills the whole space. The lanai is over 16 feet wide and provides a great space to hang out, watch the waves and surfers, and enjoy the tropical weather.

Update, on 9/24/13 we just installed a $9k sliding glass door unit even though the old unit functioned fine. The update is just part of our commitment to make sure our guests have a great experience.

We have furnished our condo to be modern and comfortable. You will find full sized couch and chairs, two king sized beds, tons of storage, large closets. The kitchen is outfitted with a new whirlpool appliance suite including microwave, dishwasher, self cleaning glass topped range and refrigerator with ice maker. We even have special outlets that have USB chargers built into them. The kitchen is outfitted with top quality pans, knives and small appliances.

Free WiFi, phone calls to the us and Canada. A large flat screen TV in the living room and another flat screen in one bedroom. Both have blue ray players attached.

Island surf is in a great central location. Immediately to the north is a area the locals call 'the Triangle'. It has lots of shops and scores of restaurants and night spots. Across the street is Kalama park, offering playgrounds, roller hockey, volleyball, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and wide open spaces to play catch or just hang on the grass. You can watch your friends and family play in the surf right from the front room.

A short drive to the south puts you in the heart of Wailea with upscale dining, shopping and more wonderful beaches.

Island surf houses many great businesses. You can rent bicycles, get a manicure or spa treatment, book a scuba dive, rent surf boards, or eat a great plate lunch all without never leaving the building.

There is a pool and BBQ area on the second floor, both with ocean views.

Amenities include:

-air conditioning

-two flat screen tvs, with blue ray players

-free phone calls to the us and Canada

-free wireless internet

-beach toys including snorkel gear, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, umbrella, coolers, sand toys

-huge washer and dryer, ironing board and iron but dryer has steam function so probably will not need to iron!

-new kitchen: dishwasher, microwave, glass topped self cleaning oven, coffee maker and grinder, blender, toaster, tea pot, rice cooker, high end knives, pots and pans.

-our on-island contact is within walking distance to the condo and will promptly attend to any issues you may encounter.

This condo is licensed for vacation rentals, Hawaiian tax id w06580022-01. Beware of condo owners not providing their tax number, often they are scams or not licensed.

We live in the Seattle area and have been visiting Hawaii frequently for the past 15 years. After visiting different islands, we settled on Maui as the best combination of recreation and amenities. We believe you simply cannot do better than Maui. There is a reason the movie stars vacation here!

After looking at scores of condos, we snapped up our unit in the Island Surf. It had the best combination of views, layout, and location. We have found that we can park our car for days at a time and walk to everything. Our unit was dated and tired, so we launched into a full scale remodel. We love the newness of the unit now and the modern feel.

Our plan is to retire and split our time between Maui and Seattle area. Until then, we wanted to share our great location and remodeled unit with others.

We hope you enjoy Maui as much as we do.

Aloha,

Matt and Colleen Keller

Matt Keller purchased this condo in 2012

We have seen Island Surf on all of our trips to Maui. In fact, we have rented surf boards on the bottom floor in the building. When a unit came for sale, we jumped at the opportunity. It has such a great location, is within walking distance to so many amenities, and the unit has great views with a open and airy feel. It also was over 1000 square feet, huge by Hawaiian standards. After looking at Island Surf for so many years, we are still in awe that we were able to buy here.

The best benefit of Island Surf is the view. Following close behind is the size and layout of the unit, 1000 square feet with one wall entirely of glass providing a great, open feeling. Combine that with the central location and ability to walk to so many attractions and you just can't beat it.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This condo was perfect for our vacation with our 2 teenage daughters! We truly felt like we were at home. The condo was so comfortable and Matt and Colleen provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay down to the smallest details. It is in a central location. Matt kept in contact with us before, during, and after our stay to make sure we didn't have any problems. The information they left us at the condo along with recommendations from previous guests were very helpful when we were making plans for the day. Thank you, Matt and Colleen, for sharing your beautiful condo with us while we visited Maui! We can't wait for a return stay!

We had an unforgettable wedding day (my daughter's) and vacation all in all. The listing description was accurate; photos truly reflect the real appearance and amenities. The condo suite and building were clean and well maintained. Matt was very helpful in answering all my questions/concerns. I would definitely recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Olivia:
Thanks for the review. I'm so glad the wedding went off exactly as planned, with the sunset framing the new couple. Very cool. I'm also impressed how active you were without renting a car. I really like the central location as you can walk to everything, something you discovered.

Thanks again for including us in your vacation and wedding plans. We would love to have you back!

BEST FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The property was exactly as pictured with all brand-new furnishings & appliances. Our 5th visit to Kihei & by far the most comfortable. We enjoyed the lanai for hanging out & did some beach time at Cove Park & Charlie Young beach. Matt was very helpful in answering questions & just being downright nice. The property was well-maintained & clean.I would certainly recommendthis property to relatives & friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Pat:
Thanks for the kinds words. I try and keep the pictures accurate, I think it is important the photos on VRBO show what the unit looks like now, not some time in the distant past. I'm glad you got a chance to hang out at the Cove and Charley Young Beach. I love those two places and they are such an easy walk.

Once again, thanks for thinking of us in your vacation plans.

Looking forward to having you back!

PERFECT CONDO IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 5 year old boys and I stayed here (March 2014) and had an amazing stay! Matt and Colleen were wonderful to deal with, and were so accommodating. They stayed in contact throughout our stay, and made sure that we had everything we needed to make our time in Maui perfect. The condo itself is such a warm and inviting space (no uncomfortable wicker furniture and a proper sofa were a real plus), the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, a full sized washer and dryer....the list goes on. This is our third time staying at the Island Surf (each time in a different condo) and by far this condo was the best.

It's central location is perfect for hitting the beach, shopping, and grabbing a drink/bite to eat, and all within walking distance. We've been home for 3 days now, and I'm already trying to convince my husband to plan our next trip (and stay at this condo of course!). Thanks so much, Matt and Colleen!

Owner's Response: Susan:
Thanks for the great review. I am glad you liked the furniture. We bought full sized pieces instead of the apartment sized other owners use to make their spaces seem bigger. I like the ability to lay and read or nap on a "real" couch. You are the 5th guest to specifically comment on the beds, I've had others ask where to buy them (Costco).

We look forward to having you back for your next Maui trip!

GREAT CONDO IN A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This condo truly feels like a home away from home- not merely a glorified motel room with no amenities but a place where you can truly settle in- what a blessing! It is in a great location- beaches, a great park, groceries, shops, and restaurants are all within walking distance (even with three little ones)- that a car can be optional. We love the Kihei vibe- a great mix of tourists and locals. And the owner of the unit is by far the most considerate and thoughtful that we have ever dealt with- thank you! Thank you for an awesome time in a wonderful place!

Thanks so much for the kind words. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We feel the same way about Kihei, very unpretentious and unassuming. I love the urban vibe and all the activies within walking distance. It is easy to keep a family busy here!

Also, thanks for booking for next year after your month long stay this year.

OUTSTANDING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Often when we were promised an ocean view, it was exaggerated. Not here. We had a gorgeous view not only from the lanai but from the living room couch. We were close enough to see the surfers. The view even on a rainy day was enjoyable. The sunsets every night were spectacular. The photos very accurately portrayed the appearance of the condo. The condo was clean and inviting on our arrival. Amenities were as expected, and more. During our month's stay we had other family visiting, including a toddler. Bedding, booster chair and even beach toys were provided. With a young child we ate in more. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped - more than enough pots and pans and even food wrap and storage containers, as well as spices and condiments. 2 high end gas barbecues available in the pool area. Location was great. Beach, park with children's play structures right across the street. Grocery store and lots of restaurants within walking distance. While a car was a good thing for trips further afield, there were many days we didn't use the car at all. In the condo itself, were movies, games, CD's and books along with free WIFI and telephone service. There was also a lot of information about good beaches and things to do in the area. The owner was accessible, almost instantly, by email, to address any questions or concerns and even contacted us periodically to ask how everything was. We would return in a minute, as would our children and grandchild. Some of the activities we enjoyed were golfing at Eileia golf course, whale watching (Pacific Whale), snorkeling trip (Trinity), trip up to the Haleakala crater, luau at Lahaina (would not necessarily recommend that for a 2 year old - 3 hours can get long), aquarium at Maaelea, sugar train at Lahaina, strolling down the ocean front at Lahaina, play structure in park across the street in Kihei, aquatic center in Kihei has great kiddie pool. lots of great restaurants but Kihei café has fantastic breakfasts, Fabianos has great pizza and nice play area for kids while you wait for your meal. Fish tacos in the wagon almost next to the condo are great. Enjoyed Five Palms for anniversary dinner. Mama's Fish House was good but very pricey (2 crabcakes - appetizer- $24) so for me, somewhat overrated.

Owner's Response: Dietmar and Laura:
Thanks for the great review. You were our first month long guests, I'm so glad the unit worked out the way you had hoped. It sounds like you and your family covered a lot of ground and activities, what a great trip. I think you are the first three generation stay at our place, what fun.

Looking forward to having you back.
