I am a retired travel agent and have traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and the Orient. I have stayed in many elegant hotels, condos and cruise ships. I have been a visitor to Maui since 1984. Maui is where my heart is and I consider it my second home. I have decorated and furnished my condo as I have furnished my primary residence because I want to be surrounded by tropical elegance and comfort. I hope you will feel the same as you share my home.
First and foremost, this condo is my second home! I love the ambiance in South Kihei and the Island Surf Building is the 'Golden Ring' of the area! I looked at many properties in the South Kihei area and ALWAYS went back to this building. I knew what I wanted, I waited and I finally was able to purchase the PRIME condo in this wonderful building - the penthouse floor, end unit condo with windows on three sides and unsurpassed views!
The building has a private pool and barbeques with dining area. There is plenty of off street free parking and even a place to hose off or completely wash your car. The building also has 2 elevators, or, if you are energetic, you can climb the stairs!
I love drinking my tea or coffee in the morning out on the lanai and watching the sun rise over Haleakala. I love sitting and watching the WHALES frolicking in the beautiful surf during the daytime. I love sipping a cocktail and watching the sun set over the ocean in the early evening. I love sitting in the darkness and looking up at the starlit sky while listening to the ocean's gentle roar as the waves lap against the shore! I love my condo and my location 24/7 and 365 days a year!
Shopping is easy and convenient, just a short walk away. Shave Ice is right out the front door and to the right about 50 steps! My hairdresser and massage therapist are on the first floor of my building. Charley Young beach is across the street, within walking distance. You can rent diving gear or snorkeling equipment from the shops on the first floor. There are also two surf schools where you can take lessons or just rent boards, one on the first floor and one right across the street.
In Kalama Park, directly across the street you will find tennis courts, a skate park, volleyball nets, barbeques, picnic tables, a ball field and many other things to do.
