Overview

Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Unit 507 is a fifth floor, luxuriously appointed one bedroom condominium at the Kihei (Key-Hay) Surfside Resort, Maui, has a 180 degree absolute direct oceanfront view and the islands of Lanai, Kaho'olawe and Molokini are clearly visible nearby.

The unit has been completely remodelled and refurnished. The kitchen has maple cabinets imported from Canada, granite countertops, Professional Series stainless steel appliances including quiet dishwasher (many of the one bedroom units at the Surfside still do not have a dishwasher) and a large side by side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser. The kitchen is fully equipped with a multitude of cooking tools including small appliances and Italian cookware. The living room has a queen size sofa bed with deluxe mattress, built in granite desk with plugs, telephone and high speed internet and wireless internet, wall mounted 37' Vizio LCD TV with DVD/VCR player, stereo with CD player and Ipod dock, and a private lanai. The bedroom has a king sized Sealy Posterpedic bed and a wall mounted 22' LCD TV, telephone and security safe. The unit has a semi ensuite bathroom with granite countertops, and large custom built shower with rain head, hand wand, body sprays and hooks for your wet towels and bathing suits.

The unit is fully equipped with utensils, fresh linens and towels, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler. Umbrellas, boogie boards and snorkel gear are not supplied, but are often left behind in the units by other guests – no guarantees.

In case the daily trade winds let you down, the unit is equipped with multi-speed, ceiling fans in both the living room and bedroom. Laundry facilities are available on site.

The property itself features an extensive and immaculately kept lawn area with dozens of loungers, with a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbeque facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and lanais. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui, where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and the luxurious hotels of Wailea, or swim or snorkel with turtles and a multitude of tropical fish.

It is customary for the residents of the Kihei Surfside to gather each evening for cocktails on the shore near the tiki torches for a traditional Hawaiian sundown ceremony. This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fellow vacationers!

Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The Kihei Surfside Resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator. There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort. The Grand Wailea Hotel, The Shops at Wailea and Wailea/Makena Golf Courses are close by and Kahalui airport is just twenty-five minutes away.

Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There is free parking on site. Just a few minutes from the airport are Costco, Wal-Mart and Sears. A short drive from the resort is Safeway, Foodland and Star Market, where you can stock up on groceries. Right across the parking lot from the Surfside is an upscale deli/grocery store for last minute items, and a yoga studio.

The world class golf facilities of Wailea and Makena are nearby. Windsurfing, and many other water activities are also available nearby. Some of the best snorkeling on Maui is steps from the property. The Pacific Foundation conducts their annual whale count from the Surfside property. The Kihei boat ramp, from where the pleasure boats and sightseeing/snorkeling tours depart, can be seen from the lanai and is a two minute walk.

Kihei town itself is only a few minutes away by car and boasts many fine restaurants, video and gift shops. Historical Lahaina and beautiful Kaanapali beach are a scenic 35 minute drive towards the western part of Maui

About Larry Rosenberg

Larry and Sharon Rosenberg are businesspeople from Vancouver, Canada. We started coming to the Kihei Surfside on our honeymoon in 1983. We loved it so much we returned every year. We feel very fortunate to be owners at the Kihei Surfside. The Surfside is a special place - our favorite on earth - and we enjoy helping first timers discover this magical place! We plan to spend our winters at the Surfside once we retire.

Larry Rosenberg purchased this condo in 2008

Why Larry Rosenberg chose Maui

We are convinced this property offers the best value and location for oceanfront accommodation in the south Kihei/Wailea area. All of the units are direct oceanfront, and the property has the most amazing oceanfront lawn area spanning over 2 acres, which is unique to our property. The best part about the Surfside are the friendly, happy people, and the great accommodating staff!

What makes this condo unique

The property is located right at the north end of world famous Keawakapu Beach. It is one of the finest white sand beaches anywhere. It stretches for miles past some of the most expensive homes and hotels in all of Maui. Great for walking or running. There is a reef right at our property that has the most amazing snorkeling we have seen anywhere. Unlike most other oceanfront properties in Kihei, the Surfside is perched right on the sea shore, set back several hundred feet from S. Kihei Road, so you hear the ocean, not the road noise. The complex has two high end stainless steel barbeques and picnic tables right at the ocean. Almost every night, we use the barbeque and eat our dinner at the oceanfront lit by tiki torches.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was great! Beautiful condo, well equipped, nicely furnished, friendly, helpful staff! We hope to return soon! The Five Palms next door is lovely for dining and if you like a casual dinner go to Manoli's!

Kihei Surfside 507, 8-16 thru 8-24

  • 4 of 5

We've been staying at Kihei Surfside for about 35 years off and on, so it was good to "get home". The unit was ready at the scheduled time and access was no problem. We did a quick inventory of items advertised, and found a few things missing (ironing board, cooler, beach umbrella). We contacted Barrie, and she was fantastic! She met us the next morning at the agreed-to time and brought the above-mentioned items. The unit was pretty clean, but a few things could have used some attention. The sheets on the closet-side of the bed had holes in them, and there was some grossness on the toilet seat. We always travel with antiseptic wipes, so we took care of that. Other than that, the unit was as advertised. One big issue to us, however, was the management office hours. They close at 3:30. We were often out at the beach or doing something else, and didn't get back until around that time, and we could never manage to get the shuffleboard game, which had always been one of our favorites. I'd like to suggest that some way be set up to get the shuffleboard, boche ball or putter equipment after 3:30. There were still a good 3 and a half hours of sunlight left to play, but we couldn't get the "toys".

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

I just had another great vacation at The Kihei Surfside. This is the first time that I have stayed in unit #507 and it is well equiped and super clean as all of the other Rosie's Rentals units I have stayed in.This unit also has new windows and sliding doors, which is a nice upgrade. You can't beat the view from the balcony, weather watching the sunset or watching the boats leave for the snorkeling trips in the morning. I love the super large lawn area, its a great place to lounge around and get some sun. The location of the Surfside is perfect, you have great restaurants and a small store just steps away and more restaurants, shopping and four golf courses less than ten minutes away. What more could you want. I can't wait for my next trip to the Kihei Surfside...Thanks

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience at this condo: Unit #507 Kihei Surfside. The view can't be beat - the complex is lovely, the grounds immaculate. All guests and residents were very mindful of the 9:00 p.m. quiet time, which we appreciated. Great location in South Kihei - a bit quieter than the heart of Kihei, yet very walkable to all of the excellent beaches, bars and restaurants. The unit is in great shape and well equipped, including snorkeling gear, beach chairs and a beach umbrella, which was a surprise to us. We will definitely try and stay in this same unit our next trip to Maui - we just loved it - thanks!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our unit was nicely renovated, the king sized bed extremely comfortable and the kitchen nicely equipped.

The view is spectacular in every direction both from the unit as well as the grounds. Management was also very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our 2 week stay in every way and look forward to coming back.😊

Great Location, Great Stay - Couple

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at #507 Surfside for 7 days, our first time in Hawaii.

The location was perfect. Only about 20 mintues from the airport and steps away from a fabulous beach and snorkling area where we got to see sea turtles! The room was well equipped with everything we needed including extra linens, towels, and everything you require to enjoy the beach! The pictures reflect the unit - down to the bedsheets. The unit was very clean and well maintained - looked brand new!

The transaction to book was super easy - paid everything thru paypal, and had our code for entry within a day. We had no issues upon our arrival - even though we arrived late at night. We had a few questions when we got there and our unit and our contact person was easy to get a hold of and very accomodating. I would recommend this unit and this property owner to friends and relatives.

We are planning to stay visit again, and stay at the same unit.

A cheap eat to check out: Coconut Fish Cafe in Kihei!

Car: recommended

Kihei Surfside Resort is located at 2936 S. Kihei Road, South Kihei at the entrance of beautiful Wailea. This is the desert part of Maui, where the sun shines more than any other part of the island. The Kihei Surfside Resort consists of an absolute oceanfront concrete building of 6 floors and 84 deluxe units with an elevator. There is free parking on site. The resort is a twenty-five minute drive from the Kahului Airport (OGG). Rental cars are available at the airport or in Kihei town. There are also taxis available at the airport (about $50), a shuttle bus and public transportation.

Virtually all of the properties and resorts in Kihei are either located right on busy S. Kihei Rd., or if they are set back from the road - are across from the street from the ocean. One unique feature of the Kihei Surfside is that it is located at the quiet end of S. Kihei Road, AND is set back 300 feet from S. Kihei Road AND is located right on the ocean! Because it is hard to see from the road, many first time Surfside guests say that even though they have visited Kihei many times, they had never seen the resort!

Another unique feature of the property is that we have a 2 acre, immaculately kept oceanfront lawn area with dozens of loungers, with a heated swimming pool and deluxe barbeque facilities. In season, there are daily whale sightings from both the grounds and lanais. In fact, the Pacific Whale Foundation conducts their annual whale count from our property. The building is located at the north end of Keawakapu Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui (voted Maui’s most romantic), where you can walk for miles past some of the most expensive oceanfront homes on the island and the luxurious hotels of Wailea, including the Grand Wailea Hotel. It is customary for the residents of the Kihei Surfside to gather each evening for cocktails on the shore near the tiki torches for a traditional Hawaiian sundown ceremony. Feel free to join in – everyone is welcome - this is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and fellow vacationers!

There are two very nice oceanfront restaurants within 100 yards of the resort; the Five Palms and Sarentos on the Beach. The Five Palms is known as the best happy hour on Maui, the bar menu and drinks are half price between 5 and 7:30PM, and after 9PM. Right across the parking lot from the Surfside is an upscale deli/grocery/wine store, Zach’s. Other larger grocery stores in Kihei, a short drive from the resort are Safeway, Foodland and Star Market. The island also has a Costco, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Sears.

There is never any shortage of things to do on Maui. The Shops at Wailea, Wailea Golf Club, Wailea Tennis Club and Makena Golf Club are within a five minute drive. The Kihei boat ramp is located 100 yards north of the property. Several of the tour operators for snorkeling and diving launch here. See Maui Dive Shop, Makena Coast Dive Charters, and Blue Water Rafting. Maalaea Harbor is a 20 minute drive, and from there you would get the fishing charters and sunset dinner cruises, or visit the Maui Ocean Center. The old whaling town of Lahaina is a 45 minute drive; from there you can ride on the Atlantis Submarine, or go for a boat trip with the Pacific Whale Foundation. Helicopter tours are available from the airport. See Blue Hawaiian Helicopters or Air Maui. Feeling adventurous? Try riding a bike down Mount Haleakala - Haleakala Bike Company. For exercise enthusiasts, there are a couple of gyms nearby – Powerhouse Gym, Valley Isle Fitness, and Pilates Maui. There is also an oceanfront yoga studio Maui Yoga Path right across the parking lot.

We think this property has the best location in Kihei!
