This sixth (top) floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after ocean side of the elevator, and has a spectacular ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and lanai. It is one of the larger, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath units (680 sq ft). The view of the ocean and its abundant wildlife is absolutely breathtaking.

The unit has been tastefully remodeled to a very high standard. The kitchen and vanities are done in rich cherry colored cabinetry (new in 2015) and gorgeous light brown granite countertops, which is consistent throughout the unit. The entire unit has porcelain flooring. All lighting in all rooms is controlled by dimmer switches.

The very attractive peninsula style kitchen is fully equipped with clean white appliances, including a refrigerator with ice maker, full size range, dishwasher, multi-function microwave oven, garbage disposer and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, coffee grinder, four slice toaster, blender, crock pot, rice maker and hand mixer.

The living room has a queen size sofa-bed and a flat screen LCD color TV and DVD player, and of a multi speed ceiling fan. There is free wireless high speed internet and telephone with free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The oceanfront dining area has a round rattan glass table with 4 matching tropical armchairs.

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.

This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for a beautifully remodeled unit in a spectacular location in the building with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui mountains.

The 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. The building underwent an extensive makeover during the summer of 2015, it was closed for six months. Each unit received new windows, doors and railings, and the building itself had a complete concrete restoration and paint. 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 barbecue 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.

Rosiesrentals.com has been in business since 2003. We run our business from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. We personally own several units in the Kihei Surfside building, and also own units in Scottsdale, AZ, and Lake Country, British Columbia.

In Hawaii, we are not a property manager, but rather represent our own units as well as act as the online face and name for other friends and relatives within the Kihei Surfside Community who self-manage their properties and advertise them on the internet. Together, we have the largest selection of properties to rent at the Kihei Surfside, including many in the prime locations. We are registered in Hawaii as a Transient Accommodations Operator. We have an on island representative who is available in case any issues that arise with the units.

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. We enjoy walking the beach each morning, and spending time some time there soaking up some morning sun and swimming/snorkeling in the warm ocean. When we want some quieter time, we spend time on the oceanfront lawn. The grass is like a putting green - many people reach down to feel it to see if it is real - it looks like carpet! It is a great place to soak up some sun, read a great book, watch the whales, dolphins and turtles or catch a nap! 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.

summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Kihei Surfside. I can't say enough how glad I am that we chose this location on Kihei. The beach was uncrowded. The condo building next door rents SUP and snorkeling gear and has a great restaurant. Right off the beach is amazing snorkeling. My teenagers loved this beach, we didn't even use the pool. The condo had umbrellas and beach chairs and someone left snorkel gear and kid sand toys.

This location is so central on Maui - 2 lane highway in & out. So easy to get to Hana Highway, Haleakula, the airport, Maalaea Harbor. It was a pain to get to Kaanapali for the luau and I was glad that we didn't stay in that crowded spot.

The condo had everything we needed. It was a very comfortable space to stay. The view from this unit is perfection. It's away from the elevator and we only had noise one night but I think the guests figured out that everyone in the entire building could hear them. The office managers were very friendly and helpful. In general - this property is very well maintained. The lawns are manicured. The public spaces were very clean. We did laundry once and there was a little bit of waiting involved.

There is no A/C, which I knew going in but I thought the view was worth it. It was not a problem during the day - the tradewinds were constant. At night it got a little warm. There are ceiling fans.

There were some very minor opportunities for improvement that I passed on to Larry. Rosies Rentals was very helpful and responsive. I didn't need to call my local island person at all.

Our itinerary included a snorkeling charter, hiking Haleakula at varying heights, driving part way to Hana, luau, and a visit to Pearl Harbor on Oahu. That was an easy day trip - get your ferry tickets to the Arizona Memorial 60 days in advance (translate exactly 2 months, not 60 days). The timing was perfect to fly out at 9am and return at 6pm, we went to the Missouri also, the memorial is a 10 minute cab ride. And - if you want to do sunrise at Haleakula you have to reserve that 60 days in advance as well - I mean on the National Park Service website.

I would rent this condo again. Being on the beach vs across the street from the beach is a huge difference.

Owner's Response: Hi Amy! Aloha!!! We just read your beautiful review of our condo. My heart sings. We try hard to please guests and we personally love our place very much. It is always rewarding to see what others' reactions are, especially when the review is so thorough and thoughtful. Thank you for taking the time to describe the location, amenities and the benefits of our unit & complex. It is especially nice that you commented on how helpful the people at Rosie's Rentals are as well as the management at the resort. Everyone does try their best to please and we think they do a fantastic job too. I hope you will come back soon! I'm so glad you had a good vacation. Many thanks again, Linda (Owner)

Kihei Surfside provides just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to the Kihei Surfside, although the first to this unit. Everything was as we had hoped for--a nicely updated unit, great views, and a wonderful location. Some people might be disappointed with the lack of air conditioning, but the ceiling fans and the trade winds were usually more than adequate. Having one and a half baths was nice as my husband was often up earlier than I was and he could use the half bath and the living area and let me sleep. Since our last visit seven years ago, the whole property had been improved with new tile, paint, keyless entry pads for the laundry room and pool bathroom, and some new landscaping. The beautiful beach was only 25 yards away, just past the next resort, so we could get there quickly or just enjoy lounge chairs by the pool or on the huge grass area overlooking the ocean. We snorkeled right off our beach a number of times; one morning we spotted 5 sea turtles. We would definitely recommend Unit 604 and the Kihei Surfside to our friends.

Great place to stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Kihei Surfside is in a great location - walking distance to Keawakapu Beach and just a short drive to restaurants and other beaches in the Kihei/Wailea area. We stayed in unit 604 (top floor) which had amazing views from the moment you enter the unit. Sunsets are beautiful! We also spotted turtles swimming in the reef right outside Kihei Surfside just from sitting on the lanai! The unit itself was very clean, comfortable, and provided a lot of items for a day at the beach including beach umbrellas, chairs, coolers, snorkeling gear, towels, etc. The kitchen has everything you need if you plan to stay in and cook. Booking/check in/check out was super easy. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again!

Paradise with turtles swimming past the reef out front!!

  • 5 of 5

Where shall I start? Shallow end of the pool or the amazing shore line from our lanai.(Turtles included) Yes before I talk about the unit the reef along the front of Kihei Surfside is amazing. The Green Turtles at Maui stay close to shore and feed off the algae on the reefs. There is a large sand area closer to the unit that the y like to clean in also. Amazing that all day long they are cruising by without a care in the world.

The unit it self is even better then the pictures illustrate, which is a plus as many travelers have experienced the opposite . The views of the ocean, reefs and the beautiful lawn area is as best as one can get with out being on a boat. Access to units, pool/BBQ and lawn area are great. (My wife had foot surgery and needed a need scooter to get around.) Ocean swimming is to the left of the complex,(maybe a 100 yards) which also included Keawakapu Beach.

The unit is so well equipped with everything one might need. The kitchen is a no brainier for cooking anything. The refrigerator has an ice maker which is a plus in the tropics and mixing the spirits.

Sand toys,snorkles,mask,boggie board and I think I saw tennis rackets at some point in the closet.

To the divers in the family this place is the best. I dive with Ed Robinson's when I go to Kihei. The boat ramp is with in view of unit and walking is a two minute stroll across the lawn. This is where all the local boats set off for diving and snorkeling.

Another plus for us is we like to stay away from the main stream. But hop in the car either direction and plenty of shops and restaurants to explore. (Oops shopping too!)

Booking was easy as checking in to unit. There really is no check in except for giving the office your license plate number and getting a bathroom code for swimming pool.

The unit uses a code for door so unless you forget it there is no locking keys inside. Tougher then one thinks when in Paradise!

We will be back next year but we think two weeks maybe needed next time!!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to read this! The turtles generally do cooperate and provide a wonderful environment for our guests. We enjoy the reactions that we get to our top floor unit and try hard to please. One of the most fun things about owning it is being able to experience and share the reactions of people like you who have a magical vacation, a perfect getaway, relaxation to the max! We are so glad that you used the facilities and found everything to your comfort and liking. Our rental agent is fastidious as are the housekeepers and it is truly appreciated to read a review like this where everyone's efforts are noticed and recognized. Thank you for being expressive guests. We look forward to your return. Steve & Linda (604 Owner)

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The unit has a spectacular view! Everything you need is provided. There were even beach chairs/umbrellas and snorkel gear. Definitely check in the unit to see what is there before renting anything. The biggest draw backs for us, were not having the beach right out front but it wasn't that far of a walk and not having air conditioning. Having the slider and windows open gave a great breeze but for us, it would have been nice to have air conditioning. We saw turtles every day and truly enjoyed our stay!

A Holiday in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

On our return visits to Kihei Surfside, we always enjoy our stay. The view from our lanai is incredibly beautiful from our morning breakfasts to our evening dinner watching the beautiful sunsets. The location is well situated just steps to the famous Keawakapu Beach where we had our morning swim or snorkel on the reef right outside the condo. Convenient walking distance to restaurants and shops makes it nice just to stay and not drive anywhere. We love to barbecue, the facilities are well maintained and it's fun to meet they other guests at sunset experience the ceremonial blowing or the conch shells...a Hawaiian tradition. We just love the unit, with the many mirrors for enjoying the views.
