Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This second floor, luxurious oceanfront condo at the Kihei Surfside Resort is located on the sought after ocean side of the elevator. It has a great ocean view from the kitchen, living room, dining area and lanai. It is a one bedroom, one bath unit (504 sq ft). It has been completely remodelled and refurnished, and is high end in every way! Our guests consistently give this unit a very high rating, firmly pacing it in our 'Luxury' Category. It is a very popular unit that books up fast!

The entire unit has porcelain flooring. All the cabinetry, which is consistent throughout the unit, was custom made and imported from Canada. The cabinets are solid maple, and all counters and vanities are topped with beautiful, golden colored granite. All lighting in all rooms is controlled by dimmer switches.

The 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(many of the one bedroom units at the Surfside still do not have a 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 Italian Cookware, baking pans, BBQ tools, spice rack and ample matching dishes, glasses and cutlery. The “corner sink design allows for maximum efficiency and working space. The island has a four foot eating ledge with two barstools.

The living room has a queen size sofa-bed with matching large comfy armchair with Footstool. There is also a large 37” flat screen LCD HD color TV, DVD player, a Teac sound system with IPOD Dock and sub-woofer, and a multi speed ceiling fan.

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

The private lanai has a bistro table with two bistro chairs with padded seats – 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 is tiled, with a built in, granite topped buffet with cabinets and a desk area with free high speed internet and free long distance calling to the United States and Canada.

The bedroom has a Sealy Posturepedic pillow top King size bed, multi speed ceiling fan, Hawaiian style rattan furniture, plantation shutters, oversized closet, digital security safe and a wall mounted 32” flat screen LCD TV.

The 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 counter top and Kohler toilet.

The unit is fully equipped with, fresh linen and towels, iron/ironing board, hair dryer and beach gear that includes folding chairs, each towels, boogie boards, snorkel gear and a cooler.

This unit is an excellent choice for guests who are looking for luxury, high end accommodation with a spectacular location and unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and the West Maui mountains.

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.

About Larry Rosenberg

We are Larry and Sharon Rosenberg from Surrey, BC Canada. We started coming to the Kihei Surfside on our honeymoon in 1983. We loved it so much we returned every year since 1986. We purchased our first unit in 2006. We plan to spend our winters at the Surfside once we retire.

Larry Rosenberg purchased this condo in 2007

Why Larry Rosenberg chose Maui

The property offers the best location and value on the oceanfront in all of Kihei or Wailea. All of the units are direct oceanfront, and the property has the most amazing oceanfront lawn area spanning over 2 acres. The best part about the Surfside are the friendly happy people, and the great accommodating staff!

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. There is a reef right at our property that has the most amazing snorkelling we have seen anywhere. Unlike most other oceanfron 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

KS206 is a beautiful, wonderfully equipped unit. Everything was First Class! We enjoyed Nalu's restaurant in the Azeka Center.

Kihei Surfside

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Maui many times and stayed in different parts of the island. By far this condo is the perfect location if you want to shop, snorkel and eat at the local restaurants. We swam with turtles at the beach just to the left of the unit. The unit was stocked with beach towels, chairs & cooler. Every morning we woke up to the sounds of the Rooster, birds chirping and the waves. Drank coffee on the lani while watching the sun come up. The unit was clean and tidy. We had such a lovely time none of us wanted to leave. We are already planning a return trip. I would recommend this unit to my friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review! So glad you enjoyed the unit. We work hard to ensure guest satisfaction, so it is always gratifying when our hard work is acknowledged! The amount of turtles that now reside in the ocean adjacent to the property is amazing, considering they were virtually non existent about 20 years ago when they were put on the endangered species list. So many people see and enjoy them everyday! Rosie

Great time in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

Booked our stay at the last minute on a standby flight. Larry was very accommodating and was OK with us potentially coming one day late. Fortunately we made it on time.

Unit was great! Kitchen had all upgraded cabinets and appliances and had every thing we needed. Great access to a really good beach just a few steps away.

Overall we had a great time. I would come here to this same place again.

First class luxury at an affordable price .

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in 206 in March 2010 , had everything we needed and was very clean . Compared th $600 a nite at the Grand Wailea or Four Seasons for non view room , you could easily stay twice as long , and save a bundle cooking (bbq'ing) , and be oceanfront in Wailea , steps from the beach . Larry and Sharon are fantastic people to deal with , I will be back next year .

LOVED this condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has all of the comforts of home. The owners pay attention to detail. The view was awesome and we were lucky enough to see whales while we were at the condo. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on during a vacation! The big screen tv was a plus in the evenings while relaxing. We will book this condo again next time we are in Maui! Thank You Larry!

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.
