About Diana Murdoch

We have been coming to Maui since 1980. In 1982 we were able to buy our lovely condo. We have been renting our condo to guests such as yourselves ever since then. We retired on Maui in 2001 and are now here to actively care for our condo. Kihei Surfside is the best oceanfront condo on the island. They have a wonderful group of people who come year after year, many of them renting from us. They have a beautiful sunset conch ceremony each night, in celebration of the setting sun. The guests are very inclusive and welcome new participants each night.

Diana Murdoch purchased this condo in 1982

Why Diana Murdoch chose Maui

Best location on Maui, located next to the world famous Keawakapau Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Whale watching in the winter, walking to the beach, no need to get in the car. Snorkeling just steps from the condo. Walking the beach into Wailea and having lunch at one of the world famous Wailea hotels.

Great Condo for Enjoying Maui

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Diana's condo on Maui. It was the perfect location. We explored a number of beaches in the area, but the best beach ended up being just a few steps away, Keawakapu! The condo was perfect for two people and had everything needed for a relaxing week. The view from the floor to ceiling windows and the balcony is amazing - perfect for those Hawaiian sunsets. Diana was the perfect host, providing everything we needed in advance.

It was one of the best experiences we had with VRBO stays.

The location of the condo is amazing; you could not ask for a better

ocean view! Very well maintained and equipped with everything

you need. The owner, Diana, was very nice, providing info prior to our arrival

and onsite after we were settled. We want to express our special

gratitude to Barrie, the manager of the property. She was excellent,

and very helpful. We will be back!

Great location

We have stayed twice in this unit. Great location, fabulous view and pleasant accommodation drew us to this site.

It is ideal for two people and we would not hesitate to stay there again.

Terrific View, Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the view out of this window, this unit is perfect for both sunrises and sunsets. The lanai has an unobstructed view of the ocean, much to the envy of my family/friends. The place was complete with cookware, which made for a economical weekend. The building also offers free movie rentals, and croquet/putt putt games on their expansive beachside lawn. The building is right next to the Mana Kai Maui, a perfect 50 yard walk from the building for happy hour in their beachside bar. There is also a fully stocked grocery store/market next to the bar, which is super convenient. SO many turtles to be seen in the reef/rocks outside the property. Finally, Keawokapu Beach (sp?) is a fantastic beach, and a very short walk from the property. We'll be back.

Maui's Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Kihei Surfside, and we're already looking forward to our next stay. It's on the far south end of Kihei, away from the busy beaches mid-town and a short walk to the gorgeous beaches and resorts in Wailea. The reef and rocks right in front are home to dozens of turtles (we could see them from the window, and snorkeled with them a few times). This unit was very clean and Diana was kind and easy to work with. We'll definitely be back.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to rent both of Diana's condos for a trip with friends. Throughout the stay we argued over who had the best condo. The views from the balcony are simply amazing. The condo is lovely and well stocked. A fabulous home away. Our only complaint is that we didn't get to stay long enough. We were seeing multiple islands and had only 3 nights in Kihei was just long enough to leave you wanting more. This was our first trip to Maui but I certainly hope to return and stay at Kihei Surfside again.
