This second floor oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after ocean side of the elevator, and in the coveted “2 stack”, which are the closest to the ocean one bedroom condos in all of Kihei or Wailea. It has a spectacular 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. It was completely remodeled and refurnished in June 2010, refreshed in 2015, and is spectacular in every way! Considering its high level of finishing and location, we believe this is the finest unit one bedroom, 1.5 bath in the building.
The entire unit has porcelain flooring. All the cabinetry was custom made and imported from Canada. It is cherry stained maple, and all counters and vanities are topped with a very unique, light colored granite called “Delicates”. All lighting in all rooms is controlled by dimmer switches.
The over-sized gourmet kitchen is spectacular! It is fully equipped with stainless steel Professional Series appliances, including side by side fridge/freezer with water and ice, flat top stove with five burners and warming drawer, quiet 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. There is also a large selection of higher end pots and pans, baking pans, high quality knife set, spice rack and ample matching dishes, glasses and cutlery. The “corner sink design allows for maximum efficiency and working space. The island has a six foot eating ledge with three barstools.
The living room has a queen size sofa-bed with matching large comfy armchair with ottoman. There is also a large 47” flat screen LCD HD color TV with an HD cable box c/w DVR and DVD player, and of course, a multi speed ceiling fan.
The dining area has an over-sized round rattan glass table with 4 matching tropical armchairs.
The large, private lanai has a glass bistro table with two heavily padded swivel rocker chairs – a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic oceanfront dinner!
The entry has a large built in, granite topped buffet with cabinets and a full set of dresser drawers, and a desk area with free high speed internet (wi-fi and Ethernet) and free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.
The bedroom has a high quality pillow top King size bed, high quality bedding, multi speed ceiling fan, Hawaiian style rattan furniture, plantation shutters, oversized closet, digital security safe, telephone and a wall mounted 32” flat screen LCD TV.
The master bathroom has a full size, walk in shower with a Pulse shower spa system, including rain head, hand held wand/massager and six body sprays. There is an over height vanity with granite countertop. The matching half bath has been finished to the same high standard. Both bathrooms have Kohler toilets.
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.
This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for the best accommodation the Kihei Surfside has to offer; a spacious, comfortable high end oceanfront condo with a spectacular location and 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 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.
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 face and the name for other friends and relatives within the Kihei Surfside Community who self-manage their properties and advertise them on the internet.

About Larry Rosenberg
Larry and Sharon Rosenberg are the owners of this property.
Larry Rosenberg purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Larry Rosenberg chose Kihei
We have been coming to the Kihei Surfside since our honeymoon in 1983, when we rented this 202 unit. It is absolutely our favorite place on earth! We own 4 other units at the Surfside, and when this unit became available, we knew we had to buy it as these premium, closest to the ocean units in the building don't go up for sale very often!
What makes this Condo unique
We love spending the day at Keawakapu beach, which starts at our property and goes south for miles. It is one of the nicest, white powder sand beaches in all of Maui, and I have yet to find better snorkeling anywhere on the island than right out front of our place. We like to finish the day with a sunset cocktail, and then follow by cooking fresh meat and seafood on the professional series barbeque grills and eating our dinner under the tiki torches at the concrete picnic tables at the oceanfront.

Spectacular location and setting!
Very comfortable and convenient accommodation, with an easy kitchen in which to operate.
Property management was most helpful, in a couple of situations (locked-out),
and provide very good customer service.
Lanai did not appear to have been cleaned upon arrival and window screens in bedroom could have been cleaner.
Laundry facilities can be awkward at times, but that comes with the territory.
Enjoyed all ocean-related and other out-door activities.
Would not hesitate to recommend property.
We have stayed st this property twice before, this was our first time in an ‘02’ unit. We have been in an ‘06’ and an ‘11’. The ‘02’ is so close to the water, you can hear the waves at night. Your lanai is literally on the ocean. Maybe 20 feet from water? Sunsets were gorgeous. The unit was well decorated, up to date. We arrived to a perfectly clean unit. The location is second to none and we deeply enjoyed our stay. Only two drawbacks: 1) the pull out mattress was beyond bad. Way too thin, our son found it more comfortable to sleep just on the folded up sofa. 2) I am a bedding snob. I expected far better quality sheets than the thin 45% cotton, 55% polyester sheets that were supplied. The polyester is not conducive to breath ability. And Hawaii is kinda warm and humid. 100% cotton or Bamboo is what I would have expected. And would have brought my own sheets had I known.
Our 4th visit - need I say much more!
Kihei Surfside is a precious gem! Quiet, laid back, but totally well-kept and clean. The sound of the surf rocked us to sleep each night and the birds woke us in time for a quiet beach walk. Our 4th visit - one of our favorite places on earth too Larry!
What a view!
What an amazing stay at Kihei Surfside 202! The most amazing view every morning for breakfast and the most amazing sunsets at night. The apartment was beautiful, clean, and well furnished. Kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and cooking necessities. Tommy Bahama beach chairs, plenty of towels, umbrella, and coolers provided. There is no air and can get warm in the evening, but the condo generates a nice cross breeze with the bedroom windows and back door open. The best part about the condo was the sound of the ocean crashing on the rocks outside of the condo every night in bed! Keawakapu beach is 2 minutes away and a perfect uncrowded beach to spend part or all of your day. If you want to experience the entire island, Kihei is absolutely the most ideal vacation. Staying anywhere else, it would have been difficult and time consuming to see all the sights. There are still plenty of beaches past Wailea that would be impossible to visit. Our only minor complaint was that the fan in the bedroom needed balanced so it was noisy and wobbled when on high. Overall an excellent stay, too much to do and never enough time, we will be back! Mahalo and Aloha!
My stay was perfect! Couldn't have stayed at a better location.
What a great place
This was the perfect place for the two of us. A 1 bedroom with beautiful view over the waves. Very nicely remodeled and a central location with both restaurants and grocery stores nearby. We had easy drives to Lahaina and even did the sunrise at Haleakala. Walk north in the morning or evening to Kamaole Beach for snorkeling and some sea turtles. We hope to be back in a couple years for an anniversary getaway.
Thank you for your review. It was nice to hear you enjoyed your remodeled unit with its beautiful view and found the location convenient to shops, restaurants, and of course the beach. We look forward to welcoming you back in a few years for your anniversary celebration. Mahalo! ~Rosies~

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!
