Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This unit is a fifth floor, luxuriously appointed one bedroom, 1.5 bath 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 a full kitchen, flat screen plasma TV with DVD player, stereo with CD player and IPOD dock, telephone, wireless hi-speed internet and a private lanai. The living room has a queen size sofa bed. The unit has been extensively renovated, including new kitchen with granite countertops and flooring. The bedroom has a king bed with ensuite bath and security safe.

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. Laundry facilities are available on site. 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 barbecue 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.

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 in the 2900 block of S. Kihei Road, 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 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, is a five 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 25 minute drive towards the western part of Maui.

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

My wife and I enjoyed our trip to Hawaii. Both rooms that we stayed in were very nice. Great views! Very Peaceful. Cooked some Ahi on the grills. Nice to have breakfast and lunch in our rooms. Close to the beach. We look forward to coming back. We appreciate the ease of getting our rooms and reservations. Aloha!

Fall asleep to the sound of the surf

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exceptional - gorgeous view, clean, had everything you need for a day at the beach. Very quiet - if you leave the patio door & bedroom door open you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Beautiful Keawakapu beach is steps away, and Zac's deli/market is super convenient to have right across the parking lot. We saw turtles sunbathing on the rocks from our lanai, and watched the sunsets every night. 1-2 mile walk (or very short drive!) to all the shops/dining in Kihei, and easy drive to the beautiful Wailea beaches. Maui perfection!

Owner's Response: We work hard to provide our guests with the best experience possible and really appreciated you taking the time to let us know about your Kihei Surfside vacation. It is wonderful that you were able to listen to the waves and watch the turtles from your lanai and we are happy you found the location to be super convenient to everything; beach, deli, shopping, and restaurants in Kihei. We look forward to being of service next time your travels bring you to Maui. Mahalo! Rosies Rentals

Kihei Surfside Unit 505 Review - June 2017

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo on an oceanfront property. It was well stocked, hand an excellent view and good amenities. Because the building does not have air conditioning, you needed to have the bedroom windows open to get cool at night; unfortunately, those windows are on the buildings’ hallway and parking lot side, so sleeping in didn’t work out so well for light sleepers. Apart from that, it would have been a 5!

Beautiful views and nice unit

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at the Kihei Surfside for 7 years.

Unit was very nice - ocean right there, could hear the surf, see the turtles and whales. Convenient to beaches - able to walk to a very nice beach where there is snorkeling and beautiful sunset.

The complex is well managed - quite and clean property.

Maui With A Lanai - All Is Calm

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Maui and second stay at the Kihei Surfside. First stay was in _12 where the chickens were noisy in the morning and the surf muted. In 505 the surf soothes the soul and the view changes morning to evening. This was an easy place to stay and talk with everyone. In the morning calm we would snorkel just in front of the property and we where always rewarded with green sea turtles swimming near us. Which took us to coffee on the expansive back lawn overlooking the turtles. The adjacent beaches are great for swimming and just walking along. There are way too many great restaurants in Kihei and Wailea. To avoid becoming rounded we chose not to use the elevator but to use the stairs. Amazing what you can get accustomed too.

Needless to say, we will be back for another relaxing 2 weeks.

Great View and Very Nice Suite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 21 days, it was very comfortable, the kitchen was perfect to cook in, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom fans were a little noisy. It was nice to sit on the balcony to enjoy our morning breakfast, great view. We are very familiar with Maui and this area, it is centrally located, and steps away from the most beautiful beach, great for swimming or taking long walks. (Did you know you can walk all the way to the Fairmont Ke Lani or Polo Beach) I would recommend the Kihei Surfside to everyone!

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!
