About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This third 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, and definitely one of the best located units at the Kihei Surfside. 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. The entire unit was remodeled about 10 years ago, and the owners continue to upgrade the unit on an annual basis, this year installing granite kitchen counters, new dishwasher, new built in buffet desk area, glass shower enclosure and new carpet. The unit is clean, functional and shows well as the interior is predominantly neutral colors. We have just started renting this unit, so we do not have any ratings from our guest satisfaction surveys, but we believe that once we do, especially considering its spectacular oceanfront location, that it will score as a “Luxury” unit.

The kitchen, bathrooms and lanai are tiled, while the entry hall, living room and bedroom are carpeted. The cabinetry is pearled oak, and the kitchen counters are done in lovely brown granite.

The oversized island style kitchen is great! It is fully equipped with white appliances, including fridge/freezer with ice maker, flat top stove, dishwasher, multi function microwave oven, garbage disposer and a variety of small appliances including coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, crock pot, rice maker and hand mixer.

The living room has a queen size sofa bed with 2 comfy, matching swivel/bucket rattan armchairs. There is also a large 37” flat screen LCD color TV with, DVR, and stereo. And of course, a multi speed ceiling fan.

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

The large, private lanai has a glass top bistro table with two heavily padded chairs – a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic oceanfront dinner! Turtles and dolphins can be seen year round, whales in season.

The entry hall has a built in buffet/cabinet with desk area with free high speed internet (Wi Fi) and free long distance calling to the United States and Canada, and a dresser with 6 drawers.

The bedroom has a King size bed, multi speed ceiling fan and a digital security safe.

The master bathroom has a full size, walk in shower with a built in bench. The matching half bath has been finished to the same 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. Laundry facilities are available on site.

This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for a spacious, higher end, comfortable condo with a great location and a spectacular unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui mountains.

Wonderful ocean view unit!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better spot! The building really is right on the beach and from unit 302 we had a spectacular view of the ocean. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai each evening to watch the beautiful sunsets. The town of Kihei is great with some nice beaches, restaurants, and shopping very close by. The condo itself looks like it has been recently renovated. It is in great condition and is very well kept and well stocked. There is wonderful snorkeling right outside the door and we even saw quite a few turtles! We really hope to come back again someday!

Maui Surfside 302

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay and loved the amazing view and proximity to the water! There is a green belt of parkland adjacent that was lovely to sit out on to watch the sunset. Lots of tidal pools to explore on the rocks right outside and a short walk to a restaurant for drinks / dinner looking out onto the beach . A deli/ convenience store was next door and a rental store for water sports and excursions. The pool area , laundry , common areas were very clean and staff on site were helpful and courteous. Only small disappointments: both boogie boards stuffed into the back of a closet were broken and unuseable; the cooler for the beach is very tiny, only room for a couple cans of pop and a cooler block. Had I known this I would have packed a larger collapsible one from home for lunch/ snacks / drinks for a day at the beach. Also, the bed pillows are in need of replacement . There are seemingly flat and old . The biggest problem we had coming in July was no air conditioning. There was a good breeze with the back bedroom windows open and the ceiling fans going and the veranda glass doors open but still a very warm temp and with windows open comes a lot of light and outdoor noises and the roosters waking everyone at sunrise. So glad I packed an eye mask and ear plugs ! My guess is the temp in the condo would be pleasant in the winter months. All in all a lovely vacation . Thank you !

Honeymoon in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We picked this condo for our honeymoon based on the location and view from the condo lanai.

Everything was very nice, there is no A/C, but the fans and the trade winds kept the condo cool.

We had a fabulous week and would recommend this unit for couples looking for a quiet get away. There are two upscale restaurants within easy walking distance, both had happy hours. Other than that and a small convenience market at the hotel next door, you will need a car to get to town.

We appreciated the wagons for moving our stuff upstairs and the games available for use. Bocci ball, putting green and shuffle board. Great snorkeling beaches near by as well.

Perfect view and location for a reasonable price! Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The condo was amazing, especially for it's beautiful view of the ocean and grounds right from your (third floor) glass wall view and private lanai view as well as its proximity to the beach. The open front room was a great size and was great to sleep there sometimes on the queen bed with the lanai glass doors open to hear the sounds of the ocean all night. (Note - the king size bed in the bedroom was very comfortable!) The kitchen was well kept and had everything we needed (besides the food of course) to make meals at our home away from home. There are two bathrooms, one with a large shower. They were very adequate. Note to owner - toilet seat in the 1/2 bath was cracked; please replace. The place was very clean. Extra kudos for the beach chairs, beach towels and other beach equipment in the condo for use. Renting the condo not only was more economical than staying in a hotel, but it was also easier as the condo offered many more amenities than a hotel ever would. As for renting other condos in the area, make sure you look at proximity to the ocean and beach as many are on the other side of the street and are a five minute or more walk to the ocean. Here you walk right outside and poof, you're there (ocean, beach and pool)! One thing I would mention to a potential renter is that the condo does not have air conditioning. We didn't mind most of the time as one, if you keep the glass door open with the screen closed you get a nice breeze most of the day and 2. how much time during the hottest hours during the day do you spend inside the condo and not out exploring Maui? We probably wouldn't have ran air conditioning much during our stay anyway. The condo is in Kihei, right near Wailea, in a beautiful area of Maui. There is a small downtown in Kihei great for restaurants and a nice mall in Wailea for shopping. Also, it's less than an hour drive away from most places on the island. (For those considering Maui, suggest you rent a car unless you are going to stay at the same beach the whole time you're vacationing.) We loved this area, especially for the beach which was much nicer in our opinion than in other cities/resorts in Maui. If we are fortunate to come back to Maui, we will definitely be staying here again.

Fabulous view

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable. The beachfront location is the perfect setting for fabulous views. The owner made the process easy for renting. The owner also was available for questions. The size of the condo was perfect for my husband and I.

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 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, including the Grand Wailea Hotel. 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!
