Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
This unit is a fourth 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.
This unit is among the six at the Kihei Surfside that are the closest 1 BR units to the ocean in all of Kihei/Wailea (We rent 4 of them). The unit is literally right at the ocean!
The unit has a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen including granite countertops, island, dishwasher and ice maker. The living room has a new flat panel TV, telephone with free long distance calling to the US and Canada, free hi-speed internet with wi-fi, private lanai and 2 new (2012) queen sized sofa beds. This beautiful unit has been regularly updated by its original owner.
The bedroom has a king bed with ensuite bath, security safe and TV.
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.
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 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, 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.

Location is spectacular!
We stayed there with our two sons and the condo was very comfortable for all of us. There were two foldout couches which was great for the guys. It was also nice to have 2 bathrooms. Every morning we could sit on the lanai and have coffee while watching the ocean and listening to the waves. Great beach for snorkeling is a short walk away. We stayed at a couple places in Maui and this was our favorite! We would definitely stay there again on a return trip to Maui.
Perfect place for Maui relaxing and beach enjoying
I have stayed at Surfside many times over the past 20 years, and 402 has some of the best views the complex has to offer. Very enjoyable place and equipped very well with everything needed for cooking, beaching and enjoying....Loved it and hope to return each year, great customer service from Rosie Rentals also.
I would recommend a carpet replacement or a deep cleaning as the carpet was very spotted and appeared dirty, likely from years and years of stains. That part was actually the downside of the place. Didn't effect our enjoyment, but it was truly filthy and such a nice place should have that ripped out or replaced. We wanted to wear flips in the place so as not to get our feet dirty from the carpet, so not good. BUT, superb place that has everything and we LOVED it, thanks SO much! Aloha, Mike!
Fantastic stay in unit #402.
Perfect setting, so close to the waves! Nicely furnished, wonderful ocean breezes. We will definitely come back to #402, the perfect unit, perfect location--close to everything, perfect snorkeling steps from the condo. Great happy hour next door at the Mauna Kai!
Could not have asked for more!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in #402. From the lanai, we were able to enjoy the breathtaking Maui sunsets over a glass of wine or a "cooked in" dinner for two. Being SO close to the ocean, we were also able to squeeze in some turtle watching! In addition to its proximity to the ocean, the Kihei Surfside offers a large perfectly manicured oceanfront lawn. We spent many hours lounging there, reading, or just watching the surf. The unit was very clean and certainly well equipped with everything from top end appliances to any little kitchen gadget you might need. When we decided to go out for dinner, and didn't mind a long walk, we found we could walk down the beach to the wonderful restaurants located in the beautiful Wailea resorts. (Humuhumunukunukuapuaa - or "Humus" in the Grand Wailea is a must!) As for Rosie's Rentals...amazing! After returning from breakfast Sunday morning we found the batteries in our keypad were dead, so we had no way of getting into our unit. We contacted Barrie, and within 10 minutes she had the manager there and we were in! Rosie's took care of us every step of the way. Thank you, Rosie's - our vacation was perfect. We will definitely return to this unit!
We truly appreciate your generous comments and comprehensive review. We are pleased that you thoroughly enjoyed your vacation, that you had some great experiences and that the accommodations met with your approval. We strive to provide a quality service so it was gratifying to read your complimentary remarks about Rosies and the Kihei Surfside staff as well. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Mahalo!

As usual Rosie's was professional in all aspects. The island rep Barrie was very responsive to any issues. This was our first time in #402 and we were very impressed. Every thing we needed for a comfortable beach vacation was provided. The kitchen was well supplied for our "self catering". We will be returning to this unit for sure!!
Aloha Jim! Thank you for staying with us again at the Kihei Surfside. We were pleased to hear that your first stay in this particular unit - 402, was a success and that per usual, Barrie our on island rep was very responsive to your needs. It was our pleasure to serve you, and we look forward to seeing you again. Many Mahalos! ~Rosies~
Our first time in 402 and really liked it. Have stayed in other units and this may be our favorite due to proximity to ocean. Love the new balcony and furniture. Appreciate beach chairs & towel, ice chest, etc. great vacation!
