About the property


We completely remodeled & refurnished the condo in 2009, so you will arrive to your dream vacation with all new granite countertops, eco-friendly bamboo cabinets, stainless appliances, including dishwasher, a 42-inch flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, Teac sound system with iPod docking station and subwoofers, and a queen size sleeper sofa in front of the panoramic ocean views. The unit is tiled throughout with beautiful Italian tile. The bathroom has a lovely stone-tiled walk-in shower. The bedroom comes equipped with a king bed, plantation shutters and a multi-speed overhead fan. With the new queen sofa bed, this unit sleeps 3 comfortably, and is fully furnished with luxury linens.

This home-away-from-home is equipped with beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, a locking safe for valuables, free high speed internet with wi-fi access and free long distance to US & Canada. This immaculate Kihei Surfside condo has everything you’ll need for your dream Hawaii vacation.

Our luxury oceanfront vacation condo at the beautiful Kihei Surfside Resort in Kihei, Maui is steps away from the ocean and offers turtle, dolphin and seasonal (Dec-April) whale watching, and spectacular Maui sunsets all year round. One of our favorite past times is drinking our morning coffee on the lawn and watching the sea turtles swimming in the water in front of the building. The rocky beach front offers excellent snorkeling, best accessed from the beautiful golden sand of Keawakapu beach, one of Maui’s best beaches, just steps away behind the neighboring Mana Kai Resort. A general store and the acclaimed Five Palms restaurant are also available at the Mana Kai.

A 5 minute drive takes you to all the shops and restaurants of Kihei town or the Shops at Wailea. The condo is at the end of a long driveway from S. Kihei road, so that you don’t hear the traffic noise – just the ocean waves.

Our building, the Kihei Surfside, does not have air conditioning. We are directly oceanfront and the Pacific trade winds blow in right off the ocean each afternoon. These trade winds, along with ceiling fans in the living and bedrooms, keep the condo comfortable for most people. People who have stayed at the Kihei Surfside love it and tend to return year after year. Please check out our reviews from many happy guests.

About David and Sara

After many fabulous vacations at the Kihei Surfside Resort in Maui, we determined that it was time to buy our own piece of paradise. When we remodeled our condo in June, we wanted it to have everything for our guests that we would want. We believe that we have thought everything that you could think of for that 'perfect' vacation.

David and Sara purchased this condo in 2009

We love Maui and we love the Kihei Surfside. The location couldn't be better - right on the ocean, away from the noise of S. Kihei Road, next to the beach, and 5 minutes from Shopping and Dining, the Kihei Surfside is perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Sara, thank you for sharing your Maui condo with us. We enjoyed our relaxing and comfortable time here. Your unit is wonderful and you did a great job remodeling it. What's not to like - 85 degrees- trade winds blowing - palm trees swaying - the pool and mostly the view. We would definitely come back. Aloha, Gail and Leon.

Where do you live?

The best stay in twenty years...

  • 5 of 5

We have been infrequent visitors for over twenty years and always try different properties. We both agreed we have no further to ever look again than this condo. With the ocean a stone's throw away, snorkeling available around the corner and a cool little market that makes awesome sandwiches, we could literally never have to get in a car. The complex is quiet, and the condo a perfect size for a couple. Everything you need is here and the updated kitchen and bath are well done. There is no air conditioning, but as promised, the trades and the fans cover your needs. As I write this looking out the floor to ceiling windows, the ocean sparkles and laps at the shore just outside the pool area. You will not find a better place to stay anywhere on the island...

Slice of heaven for a very reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

We came to Mau'i so I could attend a conference at a much more expensive hotel. This lovely condo had all the space we needed and was a short walk to the hotel. It's conveniently located to so much on the island. The condo is clean and very well equipped, although we only had simple breakfasts and packed lunches here. The view is spectacular and every evening's sunset was beautiful. We will come back again.

Awesome!! Exactly what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

They property was exactly what we expected, based on the online photos. Beautiful views of the ocean and pool along with the green space. There was one minor issue with the coffee machine as well as a missing cooler and the owners were more than accommodating in addressing this. We also had a welcome message on the answering machine which I thought was above and beyond. I would recommend this property to EVERYONE, you will not be disappointed.
